Hello and welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday where Caidyn shows just how weird he was as a child and worries everyone about his sanity.
This series started when I was a baby, but I joined in when the fourth book was out and the movies were starting up. Definitely was a favorite in my childhood! I couldn’t get enough of these books.
Now. I’ve owned this book since I can remember. Literally, I don’t remember a time where I didn’t own this book. But, I read it over and over and over and over again as a kid. I still own it to this day and it gave me life.
This book is about a kid who was hit by a car with his sister. He lives, she dies. And it’s about grief and pain and learning to survive. And I loved this book as a kid?? I don’t know. I genuinely don’t. (My review.)
When I was a kid, Stine was in his damn prime. He’s making a comeback now, but nothing can compare to the 90s-00s era. These three were ones that scared me the most and ones I really remember. The Barking Ghost scared me shitless. Say Cheese and Die is one that I remember as a bit freaky and also very clever. It Came From Beneath the Sink was super freaky but also very, very interesting.
Now, I don’t know if y’all know about Fear Street. Fear Street is a street that has a lot of crazy shit happen on it. And this book series is the beginning of it all! How Fear Street became this way through the Fear family. I love origin stories and this book, as a kid, was it for me. Also, super gory which gave me joy.
If this isn’t confusing enough, this book is the continuation of the Fear family (which is a family and a street). It’s a collection of books that have to do with the Fear family and what happens with them through the years. These three were my favorites! A New Fear is the first book after the trilogy listed above and is the most direct book. Really gory and creepy. Forbidden Secrets is one that I remember loving as a kid. Again, it was gory but also really twisty and the ending messed with me. The Hidden Evil is another one that I remember being twisty, gory, and the ending was a great twist.
What did you read as a kid?
Was I the only one with a Stine obsession?
