Spooky Stories for Family Listening

There’s nothing quite as deliciously spooky as sharing a spine-tingling story in the dark. What better way to do that in the month leading up to Halloween than to gather the family and listen to a scary audiobook together?

So turn on an audiobook, turn off the lights, and have a flashlight ready for a frightfully fun night of storytelling!

Small Spaces

Eleven-year-old Ollie steals a book from a crazed woman trying to get rid of it. In it, Ollie discovers a chilling story about siblings who made a sinister pact with the “smiling man.” On a school field trip to a secluded farm, she stumbles upon graves of the very people she’s been reading about. To top it off, the school bus breaks down on the way home, and the bus driver tells the kids, “Best get moving. At nightfall they’ll come for the rest of you.” Ollie and two of her friends heed his advice and embark on a hair-raising journey.
