All the Spooky Scary Reads


Welcome to the Cybils Book Lists for 2021! Instead of individual reviews this year, we are going to pick a topic and highlight as much as we can in one post. Since today is Halloween, what better topic to start with than scary and scary books? Ghosts, vampires, monsters, witches … some are scary, some are charming. Our publication of graphic novels, thorough / intermediate speculative literature and speculative literature for young people. When there are reviews from our panel members / judges, we approached them.

Ghost Girl
By Eli Melinenko
Catherine v. Books

I was so willing to read something a little scary and Ghost Girl hit all the right characters. It’s a very atmospheric kind of scary, with the dark forest, the mysterious mist enveloping, the cemetery and of course the dark stormy night. Not to mention the scary dogs and ghosts that appear to Zi. Yes all the elements for scary. – Brenda, Wooden cabin library

Rockhaven’s Monsters
By Patrick Kenny
