Honestly this ending was top-notch. Reminds me a bit of Tales from the Crypt honestly. I was not expecting it and I thought it was cleverly done. Sometimes i forget that R.L. Stine besides doing tons of teen horror, liked to play around with twist endings. Some of his Fear Street books did not end on a “happy” note. I liked the characters in this one and I was wrong about who the mysterious girl was and how she came about.
Bless. There’s a point in this book when you want to shake Corky, Debra, and Kimmy. And I just shook my head. But honestly though, most of the book works. I do love that when I think of Christmas these days, my first thought goes to crazed killers though. Reading R.L. Stine as a teen will do that to you. This is the fourth book in the Fear Street Cheerleaders series. Just a continuation of the prior installments with Corky and her friends trying to […]
This is the second collaboration audiobook I’ve borrowed and read from my library. I got into it because of my buddy Michael Connelly. If you read my previous review that I just posted, you’ll know that maybe he’s not my buddy after all, but Harry Bosch is. Conveniently, Harry is in this book! The wording on Goodreads calls this “an unprecedented collaboration”, which sounds very grand. I didn’t really get it until I looked at all the authors involved and listened to the intro. Apparently […]
The Bad Seed – 3/5 Stars The book about a bad kid hurting and killing other people, and the questions around what makes her tick. I guess I think I have seen the movie of this years ago, but other than “bad kid” I don’t recall much of it. The book dives into the psychology and especially the genetics of the questions of “bad kid” in ways that I imagine are pretty early for the genre. So this is the book that sort of started […]
So I don’t even know what to say. What a crazy ride this book was. Also it takes place in 1984 and I maybe laughed at how some of the characters were talking. But the main plot and reveal of what the villain was up to made me go what in the world. And then I started to wrack my brain and wonder if I had seen a tv movie based on this book or what since it sounded familiar to me. I never read […]
Oh Fear Street, how I have missed you. I think next year for Halloween bingo I may just read nothing but Fear Street books for squares. This is the first book in Stine’s Fear Street Cheerleaders series. There are five books. As a teen I loved this whole series and couldn’t wait for all of the installments. Fear Street and Shadyside High sounded like such dark and scary places and I always cracked up when something would happen and the police would just be all, […]
