    So, I was cruising around Goodreads looking for other YA Horror novels, and I stumbled upon R. L. Stine.  Holy Guacamole.  When I was younger I DEVOURED his YA Horror books.  I'm not talking about Goosebumps, I'm talking about Fear Street and his other series similar to that.  Wow.  It was like a blast from the past.  I wondered if I would still love them if I read one now.  To be realistic, probably not, because they are basically the same story told over and over with different villains and different main characters.  But still, back in this day - this is one of the first authors I started reading in the YA genre.  Sadly, back then the YA genre section was super small in my library.  It just wasn't a big thing.  Props to R. L. Stine for paving the way for more.  



    Here were some of my favorite R. L. Stine books:

    It begins as an innocent prank, when Deena Martinson and her best friend Jade Smith make sexy phone calls to the boys from school. But Deena's half-brother Chuck catches them in the act and threatens to tell their parents, unless the girls let him in on the fun. Chuck begins making random calls, threatening anyone who answers. It's dangerous and exciting. They're even enjoying the publicity, and the uproar they've caused. Until Chuck calls a number on Fear Street.

    To his horror, Chuck realizes he has called THE WRONG NUMBER. The jokes are over when murder is on the line. The murderer knows who they are and where they live — and they have nowhere to call for help.


    Corky Corcoran is sure it's just her imagination when she sees her dead sister rise from the grave. Or is it?

    Corky is trying to put the nightmare of Bobbi's death behind her—she's back on the Shadyside cheerleading squad and has become friends with Kimmy and Debra. But everything is not back to normal for Corky—she hears horrible screams in the gym, her friend has become obsessed with the occult, and a strange young man is following her. And then the murders begin again...

    Has the evil spirit from the Fear Street cemetery returned to destroy them one by one?  


    Don't listen to the stories they tell you about Fear Street. Wouldn't you rather explore it yourself...and see if its dark terror and unexplained mysteries are true?
    You're not afraid, are you?  

     Don't open that present!

    If only Reva Dalby had listened to that warning.

    But beautiful, cold Reva won't listen to anyone. Reva thinks she can have whatever - and whoever - she wants. After all, her daddy owns Dalby Department Stores.

    Now, someone has some surprises instore for her. Robbery? Terror? Even murder? Someone wants to treat Reva to a holiday she'll never forget.

    Holiday cheer quickly turns to holiday chills for Reva. Someone is stalking her, someone is trying to get to her.

    Her money can't help her. No one can.

    After all, who can you turn to when murder comes gift-wrapped?  


    Sure, she promised to be nicer after last year's horrors. But a rich, spoiled girl like Reva Dalby always things she can have anything—or anyone—she wants, and never, never pay.

    But now it's payback time. Someone is out to kidnap Reva.

    This year, Santa is bringing Reva a little holiday fear. And just around the corner is the biggest, most gruesome Christmas present of all—murder. And it's all hers!


    Talia Blanton could scare you to death.

    She writes horror stories- stories that often give her friends starring roles.

    Everyone loves Talia's terrifying tales- until they start to come true. One by one, Talia's friends become Talia's victims.

    Is Talia making her stories come true? Or is someone trying to turn Talia's real life into a horror story?

    What else is there to do, with all seven of them stuck in Dara Harker's luxury ski condo? There are three guys and four girls - some of them friends, some nearly strangers — all of them trapped. A blinding blizzard has stilled the lifts, blocked the roads, and killed the phones.

    A game, they think, will help them break the ice. Who will tell the truth? Who will take a dare? And how far will each of them go?

    But then the game turns deadly. One of them, it seems, would rather kill than tell the truth.

    And kill again.

    Every night Maggie Travers has the same horrible dream. Every night she is forced to watch the same murder. And every night the girl in her dream cries out for help. Maggie is afraid to go to sleep again. But when the terrifying dream starts to come true and the gruesome accidents begin, staying awake is the real nightmare!

    A spring night...soft moonlight...five beautiful Prom Queen candidates...dancing couples at the Shadyside High prom—these should be the ingredients for romance.

    But stir in one brutal murder—then another, and another—and the recipe quickly turns to horror.

    Lizzie McVay realizes that someone is murdering the five Prom Queen candidates one by one—and that she may be next on the list! Can she stop the murderer before the dance is over—for good?
    The invitation arrived in a black-bordered envelope. Inside, the card showed a coffin with the inscription "Reserved For You". It was perfectly fitting for an all-night Halloween party on Fear Street. But Terry and his girlfriend Niki wondered why they had been invited. They barely knew Justine Cameron, the beautiful and mysterious transfer student who was throwing the party.

    The party was well under way when the lights went out. That's to be expected at a spooky Halloween party. But when the lights come back on, there was that boy on the floor with the knife in his back. Just a Halloween prank? Maybe. Maybe not.

    For Terry and Niki the trick-or-treating has turned to terror. To their horror, they realize that someone at the costume party is dressed to kill!

    The perfect suntan. Soaking up the rays. Fun on the beach. That's what Claudia Walker had in mind when she accepted her friend Marla's invitation to spend the weekend at her cliffside beach house. Little did she know that horrible accidents—fatal accidents— would occur on the beach and in the house.

    But Claudia knows they're not "accidents". She's sure somebody is out to get them...out to kill them. The week of "fun in the sun" has turned dark and deadly!
     Natalie Erickson and her friends share a terrible secret. They were all in the car that foggy night — the night someone died at the dead end.

    Now someone knows too much, and there's danger ahead. Natalie just wants out of this nightmare. But that's the problem with dead ends — there's no way out!
    They say something horrible happened that day. But Martha can't remember any of it--not the smallest detail. They say it will come back to her in time. But someone wants her to remember now. She draws his face, over and over--the face of a dead boy. She can't control her hand. And she can't remember how he died. But she's going to find the answer.
