Between the Shelves

Bay Stephens



By Amy Hunter Assistant Community Librarian

It’s that time of year again when reading a good book just sounds perfect. The colors of the aspen trees around town are changing, the temperature is dropping (plummeting this year!), and Halloween is just around the corner. Fall has me reminiscing about scary books both read and unread. There’s something about colder weather and shorter days that makes a scary book sound ideal.

The following books are mysterious and somewhat unexplainable, but not quite in the horror genre. For the elementary school readers, the “Bunnicula” series by James Howe is brilliant. A possible bunny vampire—what could be better? “The Graveyard Book” by Neil Gaiman is creative in a way only Gaiman can be, with a boy named Nobody living in a graveyard. Any of Gaiman’s books could go on this list, really. We mustn’t forget the classics like the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling (too soon to be a classic?), “Dracula” by Bram Stoker, and “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley.
