      3.5 Terrifying stars.I first learned of this series through a free download of Guys Read: Funny Business. My family listened to the audio version of the book on a road trip and we couldn't stop laughing at the gross stories geared to young boys. When Guys Read: Terrifying Tales was made available to me, I jumped at the chance to read and review the book. The stories are perfect for young boys and reluctant readers. Most of the stories were short, some had the author's own opinions in boldface ty [...]

      10 stories. 10 stories with all sorts of monsters, real and imaginary. Oh, and be careful what you wish for!The book itself was a bit hit and miss. Five of the 10 stories were pretty great, at times even terrifying, but sadly 5 stories were boring and I had the urge to stop reading.My favourite story? The Blue-Bearded Bird-man. For each story I have written a mini-review + given them a star-rating. Story 1: Mr Shocky: 4.5 stars! Wow, what a story. Watch out with your imaginary friends I never th [...]

      Delightfully scary. Much scarier than the Guys Read: Thriller volume.

      I found some of the stories really good but others were so boring.

    5. Michelle Glatt on said:

      Kudos to these authors for creating middle grade stories that are truly creepy and unsettling! Great reading for October.

      I love anthologies, I love scary stuff, and this collection not only gives students some creepy tales, it also introduces them to some terrific middle grades writers.

      Another book I reviewed as a future read for my son. Once again a winner. It’s too scary for him right now at five, but it will be perfect for him around third to fourth grade. My son is starting his reading adventure at a great time. Because of these authors, he now has engaging material to read. Mothers of sons just a few years older didn’t have the options and really struggled to find good boy focused reading material. I love the overall concept of this series. Unfortunately it looks as t [...]

      My boys (8 and 10) thought this was not scary enough, but I think it was just right for them, especially the younger one.

    9. Soraya Laboy on said:

      We chose this for our middle school book club and while we all enjoyed it as a whole, some of the individual stories were not as scary/creepy as we were expecting.

    10. Carina Olsen on said:

      I confess; I only got this book because of the story by Claire Legrand. Whom I adore like crazy. Her books are always amazing. Her story is the last one in this book. Yet I did not read it first. I was good and read the other stories first, lol. Which was, well, disappointing. I have so so many thoughts.I'm not sure where to begin. I'm giving this book three stars. There are ten different stories by different authors inside. All middle grade. All supposed to be scary. But the only story that mad [...]

      This book reminds me why I'm not the biggest fan of horror stories, especially ones that don't have happy endings. With scary stories, I guess you can't always have a happy ending, but I prefer those kind. The stories in this book vary a great deal. Several of these stories have an actual solid ending with a resolution. Several of the stories though end at the climax leaving the reader to make assumptions about exactly what happened to the main character. Although admittedly it's not hard to gue [...]

      If you like a good scary story and you think you can handle any scary tale well i dare you to read scary tales it has a veracity of scary creepy story's that will make you have night mares but i have to warn you your gone need a pear of underwear and pants. One more thing read this book at your own risk. i will show a example the creature was a dark spirit want to know more about it read the book. I recommend this book to those that love scary and creepy story those that think that they are not [...]

      Are your doors and windows locked? Are all the curtains closed and the blinds lowered? Do you have a flashlight or matches and a candle handy in case the lights unexpectedly go out? Is your best buddy, your furry friend, nearby? Are you snuggling with a favorite blanket or stuffed toy you haven't used in years? If you answered yes to all of these, you might be ready to read a collection of new truly scary stories.My last encounter with a Guys Read title and an explanation of the series was Guys [...]

      I don't particularly like scary stories, but I wanted to get in on the Guys Read stuff, and well, it's Halloween. I liked some of the stories better than others, which is always going to be the case. The last story, The Mandigore by Claire Legrand, was definitely the scariest. Mr. Shocky by Michael Buckley may have been my favorite and was pretty scary or perhaps confusing ((to kids of certain ages), since it was about a child who had been through therapy for an imaginary friend, only to find ou [...]

    15. Daniel705 on said:

      After reading "Guys Read: Terrifying Tales," it felt like a copy of the "Guys Read: Thriller." The stories were great, especially ones like "Mr. Shocky," where the internal struggle was really external. And the story called "Don't eat the baby" was just great because what the main character wanted came, and he didn't want it anymore; what he hated, he decided, was not bad at all. But a lot of the stories were thrillers, so I didn't see the point in making another thriller book. I liked the artis [...]

      Ten terrifying tales by eleven noted authors make this a perfect pick for sharing around a campfire or sleepovers or reading under the covers. This is the sixth volume in the “Guys Read Library of Great Reading” series compiled by Jon Scieszka for the middle school readers. Identical in format to the previous volumes, each story in this volume is hand-picked to give you the chills. The style of writing varies from author to author and will provide a pleasant assortment of thrills. This woul [...]

      I bought this book for our students, especially for boys who don't want to read. I went ahead and read it, since I know once I do a book talk about it I won't be able to find it on the shelves. As the title describes, Terrifying Tales is truly a collection of stories meant to scare the impressionable. Although I am not a fan of story collections, I found myself reading the entire book. If anyone is wondering why it took me until book 6 of the Guys Read series to obtain this for our library, it w [...]

      Posted on behalf of Book Taster Ellie: This book has 10 horror stories in it. They are all about 30 pages. Some of them were good but the rest I just didn't care for. If you are scared of horror, don't be scared of this book. It is not that scary. Will Tyler escape his imaginary friend? Will a kid ever find out what is wrong with his sick old neighbor? Read the book to find out.This would be good for 6th grade or under. Older grades probably wouldn't be interested. I would not recommend reading [...]

      It was okay. If spooky stories are what it takes to get guys to read, I can think of some other books that are better. This book was a little better written and more creative than the Goosebumps series, but only a little.I guess I'm lucky that my boys have been enthusiastic readers from a young age and we've been able to find a bunch of topics that interest them. And yes, they read Goosebumps Plus Edgar Allen Poe.

    20. Linda Hughes on said:

      Fun, Scary Collection of Short StoriesThis book is a collection of short stories aimed at the younger set. It includes authors such as R. L. Stone (Goosebumps). All of the stories are well written by professional writers, and they range from sad, thought-provoking, on to outright scary. I enjoyed reading the book even though I am far from being twelve to 16, and I found it to be a quick read, a few hours of enjoyment.

      Eleven masters of suspense—Kelly Barnhill, Michael Buckley, Adam Gidwitz, Adele Griffin and Lisa Brown, Claire Legrand, Nikki Loftin, Daniel José Older, Dav Pilkey, R.L. Stine, and Rita Williams-Garcia—have come together to bring you a bone-chilling collection of original ghost stories with illustrations by Gris Grimly, perfect for sharing around the campfire, reading under the covers with a flashlight, and scaring your friends’ pants off.The above is the summary provided by .

    22. Nickie on said:

      I put off reading the Horror set because it's not my preferred genre. Since this is designed for middle school, it is not overboard on the gore, but most stories still have suspense/nightmare element. I didn't really love any one story in particular. I either disliked the narrator, main character, the ending, or the predictability. Someone else might enjoy this which is where the 3 star rating comes from.

    23. Ruth Ann on said:

      I read the first two stories. One is about an imaginary friend that a boy has outgrown with the help of a psychiatrist. How, then, does that friend come to be known to the boy's younger brother???The second story is about a boy and his reading tutor. Sometimes the tutor, an elderly, blind lady, has the boy read short news-type articles that have an effect on real people - yikes! Both stories are truly scary and might be terrifying in the right circumstances to younger people!

      Guys Reads books go from funny to thrilling, but this book is teriffying. These 11 tales will make you freeze in an instant, no I´m just joking, but you might want to sleep with a flashlight after reading it. The scary, gross, out of this world are in this book, and they are waiting for you to read.Be my guest and read this book, but I warn this is for people willing to be scared.

    25. Joe on said:

      Some of the stories were excellent, while others left something to be desired--just like most short story collections. However, overall, it's a good collection for middle readers delving into the world of horror (without all the gore and language and such found in adult horror). It's a good fit for the rest of the Guys Read library.

    26. Katie on said:

      Well, the note at the end all about how these are stories for guys and I should rec them to other guys and go to the website to find other stories for guys sure made me feel like, as a woman, I had no business reading this.Overall, I mostly enjoyed the stories though "Don't Eat the Baby" by Kelly Barnhill is the only one I really found scary.

    27. Kate on said:

      My 11 yr old son enjoyed 6-7 of these stories and found they went from wryly humourous, to thought-provoking, but never really found them scary. He liked the open endings to some of the stories, and 'Mr Shocky' was his definite favourite.Would love this series to be available in the UK as it would be great for reluctant boy readers.
