For what to read Wednesday this week I am recommending Goosebumps by R.L. Stine. Loved by preteens everywhere, it will probably give you chills even into adulthood. Goosebumps is a series of books that tell frightening stories which don’t always have happy endings. Titles of note that you might remember from the series include Welcome to Dead House,Night of the Living Dummy, and one of my favorites One Day at Horror Land.
Right now I’m listening to a new RL Stine book called Camp Red Moon. It’s an Audible Originals so you’ll have to have Audible to get it. It’s a short anthology of stories that all take place at Camp Red Moon. Each story is about an hour and there are 4 total I believe. My favorite story so far was the second one, about a kid named Richard who meets a new camper name Sammy. All is fine and we’ll until Sammy seemingly starts taking on Richard’s identity. But Richard can’t convince anyone of it. Is Sammy just imitating Richard to flatter him or is something more sinister afoot? This story freaked me out so much I had to stop listening to it in the middle of the night while I was working on my daughter’s birthday party. I kept thinking I was hearing noises in my house it was probably just my kids moving around in bed. But I didn’t lose any sleep over it I was just anxious to keep listening to the story.
This is the same way I feel with all Goosebumps books. So if you’ve looking for a fun read for Halloween, you can never go wrong with Goosebumps.
The stories are scary enough to actually scare you but not enough to freak you out for the rest of your life (except maybe Slappy.) It’s inspired TV shows & movies and is the original horror genre for kids for people my age.
So have you read goosebumps? Are you gonna check it out? Are you gonna check out Camp Red Moon? Let us know in the comments below.
