Book Title & Alexandra's Review

Afraid of Everything by Adam Tierney

HAPPY 150TH BOOK REVIEW

And to celebrate, here is a book of short horror stories written specifically for young readers.

5 to 95 (Suggested for all readers)

Afraid of Everything by Adam Tierney

Featuring twenty-six terrifying short stories, each based on a different A to Z phobia, this book is perfect for the young reader who wants a real scare.

I found this book of scary stories at a recent Long Beach Comic Con being sold by the author, Adam Tierney. He told me that when he was growing up in the mid-80s, he loved reading scary stories and watching scary movies, and now he has a kid of his own who also loves horror. But in this day and age, horror-related stories for kids have gotten a lot tamer. So, he wrote this book. To learn the whole story, click on the Kickstarter link below:

I told him I liked his idea of using phobias and asked if he had heard of the fear of long words: Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia. He said no. If he writes a sequel, I’m hoping he’ll include more weird phobias like Nomophobia (the fear of being without cellphones) and Sidonglobophobia (the fear of cotton balls).

I am happy to say that I’ve gone through this whole book, and everything is just the right amount of scary. Scary enough to give you shivers but not frightening enough to keep you from reading.
