Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
Adapted By: Kate McMullan

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is the tale of a charitable doctor who has been working on a top-secret experiment for years. Dr. Jekyll has always believed that a person is actually a composition of two entirely separate people (the person who is good and kind and the person who is mean and evil), and he's determined to prove it. After years of toiling, Dr. Jekyll finally concocts a drug that is able to separate the two people within him - Dr. Jekyll and his alter ego, the evil Mr. Hyde.

The story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde has been altered and shortened to make it an easier read, but all the great scary elements are still a part of this great spooky classic. If you've never heard the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story, or are looking for something a bit scary to sink your teeth into, then definitely grab a copy of this book.

The Phantom of the Opera

Author: Gaston Leroux
Adapted By: Kate McMullan

The Phantom of the Opera follows the story of Eric, a young boy who was born looking more like a skeleton than an actual boy. When he receives nothing but abuse and hatred from his parents, young Eric decides to run away, quickly finding himself part of a freak show in a local fair.

From there, Eric learns to use his freakiness to his advantage. You follow him from freak show to freak show and he just gets scarier and scarier. You don't have to have seen the Broadway show to enjoy the Phantom of the Opera book. The story is fast-paced and scary all the way through. You might want to keep a flashlight by your bed after this one though, cuz it'll have you looking for the Phantom in your closet before you crawl into bed at night!

    my quote is REALLY LONG...   "strength is the only thing that matters in this world. everything else is just an illusion for the weak... stop pretending! knock off that sentimental rubbish! harden your heart! you fool! you have to put aside your mercy... then you might.. MIGHT actually stand a chance! stop trying to convince yourself! HOW DARE YOU GIVE UP! Reach down deep! Take some pride in your heritage! There is only ONE certainty in life... A STRONG PERSON STANDS ABOVE AND CONQUERS ALL! There is no denying what you are... Just wait and see. The more we fight, the more powerful we become!! DON'T TELL ME YOU'RE STILL PREACHING THAT MERCY NONSENSE, THAT MEANS YOU'RE STILL HOLDING BACK! NO MORE WEAK HEARTED EXCUSES! THE STRONGEST WILL FIND A WAY TO SURVIVE, AND THE WEAKEST SHALL PERISH! is that the kind of fate you want for yourself?! ENOUGH! listen to me! You keep running with that self righteous look on your face! Pitiful... Its brute strength that detirmins the outcome of a battle, not goodness! WHY ARE WE SUBJECTING OURSELVES TO THIS? You've always been like this.. you show MERCY to everyone... Even your fiercest enemy's... live every moment of everyday for the singular purpose to meet the next challenge... Even if its bigger than you! test your limits.. push futher beyond! Push yourself to be the strongest there is...."   From dragonball z, vegeta
