April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz, illustrated by Stephen Gammell

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After hearing about Guillermo del Toro picking up this series for a movie, and realizing that here is yet another book that everyone around me seems to have read except for me (this seems to be the year for that!), I decided to pick up a used copy at my local Indie the other day. A goofy little collection of "horror" stories (most of which seem to have been collected from American folklore), I can't say as I would have found these stories all that scary when I was a kid. However, given the right circumstances, I can imagine that these would be fun to read for the right age group. I probably won't be on the lookout for the subsequent two volumes.
