Wow. January has been a busy month. Luckily I am doing pretty good on my reading goals. I am participating in the Modern Mrs. Darcy Challenge this year. I am a big mood reader so to make sure I still get to read everything I want to read I complete a prompt a month. Some people try to complete the challenge as quickly as possible and that is awesome. However, for me I know that if I push myself to only read for the challenge I won’t ever complete it. I tend to procrastinate.
That being said my prompt this month was to “Read a Book Published the Decade You Were Born.” I was born in the 90s. When I think of 90s reads I immediately think of R.L. Stine. I was nostalgic so I knew I had to go for a Fear Street novel.
I love to camp so my favorite Goosebumps and Fear Street novels usually involve camping. Somehow I had missed this one. I haven’t read a Fear Street novel since I was in 6th grade so I was concerned that I had outgrown them. I had forgotten how great of a writer R.L.Stine is. The plot was pretty complex. He does a great job of making you suspicious of everyone. I will say I was shocked at how gory this was. I can’t believe I read these as a preteen. It explains so much about my reading taste as an adult lol. It was a campy, fun horror novel that made me reminiscent of old horror movies. I really enjoyed my time reading it.
