I love samplers like this because they introduce me to similar titles that I might never consider! My students LOVE scary stories and I wasn't award of some of these titles until I read the excerpts in this anthology sampler. I have one or two of these title in our library at school, but will be adding the others since I know they will be popular. Thanks so much for the collection - it was ready0made reader's advisory!

I enjoy these samplers. They are especially great when trying to decide which book to read next. I had already read the full length versions of several of the titles in this sampler, but I have titles to add to my TBR now. I found myself drawn in to many of these stories and am looking forward to reading the entire novels.

The Frights & Delights from Penguin Teen was spooktacular. I’m really looking forward to The Devouring Wolf. I love the premise and style of writing. I think readers will devour Monsterious: Escape from Grimstone Manner. Chupacarter was hilarious and I enjoyed the adventure into Latinx folklore.

Thank you so much to Penguin Young Readers Group and Netgalley for the opportunity to read the sampler in exchange for honest feedback.
