The book called The Midnight Library is a well written book. The book is about a girl who is going through some problems with her family's health and such. Her mom ends up in the hospital and there's not exactly anything that she can do. She hears voices of people talking, listens into phone calls between people all the time, and this so called power isn't something she can control. The book is good if you like mysterious and kind of creepy books. It definitely portrays an image in your head of ...more

One day, Kate hears voices while she's in the graveyard putting flowers on her grandmother's grave. It was her sickly mother's request; she fulfilled it before she went to school after her visit to her mother's hospital bed. Of course she just thinks that the whispers are someone talking, since the halls are really hollow and you can hear just about anything from the graves. Well, when the days pass by she starts to hear phone conversations that talk about

Isn't it supposed to be scary? It wasn't, at all.
But, it was good anyway.

The Cat Lady includes three stories. In the titular story, “Cat Lady,” Chloe takes a dare to throw a stone at the window of the local creepy old woman whose house is filled with cats. In the next story, “Who Dares Wins,” Mark and Calvin, friends who are naturally competitive, vie for the attention of the mysterious Chrissie. The last story, “Don’t Wake The Baby,” is about a babysitting job gone awry. The quality of the stories is uneven. The titular story is the strongest, with the most ouch app ...more

The Midnight Library offers a series of scary short stories for kids that read like the Goosebumps books; fast paced, exciting, and scary, but not too scary. Just enough to be fun.
Voices tells the story of a girl who begins to hear voices after her mother falls ill and she visits her in the hospital. A Perfect Fit is about a boy whose sneakers have a will of their own and keep getting him into trouble by being involved in crimes all around town and bringing the evidence back. An Apple a Day f

Gostei...
As histórias de 'terror' desse livro é na verdade, terror infantil... tipo Scooby Doo, a diferença é que em nenhum do três contos o final é feliz.
Eu gostei bastante dos três contos, e confesso no fim do primeiro eu fiquei surpresa com o final infeliz... eu realmente pensei que teria final feliz.. rs, mas depois com os outros eu já estava preparada para ver o final infeliz... mas mesmo assim me surpreendi.
Acredito que são histórias que crianças entre 10 e 12 anos irão gostar, pois como d

When the main character starts hearing voices i found it quite weird because i don't hear voices. I was quite suspicious because when her mum got better from being ill, the main character got ill. I thought this book was a good book if you are into horror

This is probably my favorite of the Midnight Library books so far. I loved the story about the boy and the apple orchard the most; nice and creepy.
Tsing Lin
The stories are pretty frightening I guess... but then some parts just doesn't make any sense.
