During my childhood, my mom often had to monitor my reading. Not because I would attempt to read books that were inappropriate for me on purpose, but because I was such an advanced reader that I was always looking for the next challenge. There was always something about a chapter book that told me a mysterious story that always got my respect over any other type of novel. Since books with a mysterious and scary tone were my thing, my mom was always in search of horror books that were OK for kids to read.
I loved books and ,quite honestly, I still do. If you were to ask my mom what's one thing that she couldn't get me to not do as a child, it had to have been to stop reading. I would always look at the scene from Beauty and the Beast and tell her that when I grew up, I wanted my library to be just like Belle's. Though today's children may opt a smart tablet based book instead of a physical copy, nothing will ever compare to the smell of a brand new horror book.
