Series Sunday: Fear Street

(Fear Street Series)

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

My Series Sunday pick is the entire Fear Street series by R.L. Stine. *Throwback Edition* The bestselling YA series started in 1989 with The New Girl. There were spin-offs including Fear Street Saga, Fear Street Cheerleaders, and Fear Street Seniors. Millions of the Fear Street books have been sold.

Listen. I started reading Fear Street when they were first released. I was in middle school and stanned all the way out when a new book was published. I would devour the new Fear Street book, sometimes figuring out the mystery before the last chapter. I was so familiar with the happenings of Shadyside High. Chickadee read them along with me. Fear Street was my first experience with mystery/suspense/horror.

R.L. Stine wrote over 80 Fear Street books and I read majority. I recently saw a post from one of my bookhearts (The Nappy Bookish Babe) that inspired me to read one of these books now as an adult. I wonder if it will be intriguing or seem juvenile. Either way it will bring back memories of when I first fell in love with series and the mystery genre. Stay tuned for my review.
