This was another childhood favorite of mine. I believe I read these when I was in the 7th grade. It includes “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark”, “More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” and “Scary Stories 3: More Tales to Chill Your Bones”, all written by Alvin Schwartz. I remember checking each one out from the library at my school and reading them. I did enjoy reading these books. I was old enough to know that the stuff in the books wasn’t real, however, they are good enough books to keep you on the edge of your seat. I have seen this at my local bookstore and I’ve thought about re-reading these.
Now, they’ve made a movie based on the stories from these books and it’ll be released in the United States on August 9th of this year (just in a couple of weeks). I would like to see the movie on opening weekend but I don’t know if my schedule at work will allow me to. I may just have to go see it on a day off.
The second I saw the first trailer for Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark, I immediately thought of the books. I remember reading those books religiously and loving all of the stories. They were easy reads and definitely gave child me the chills. I’m actually really excited to see this movie just based on the books alone. I really hope they did the stories justice.

I read the books around 7th grade, if memory serves me correctly. The library at my school had these books and I checked them out one by one. I have purchased the books recently and now I have the chance to read the books at a more leisurely pace now when I re-read them. I went to see the movie on opening weekend and I was glad I went. I won’t spoil the movie for you if you’re interested in seeing it.
