Fear Street Series by R.L. Stine

Me and my friends were absolutely obsessed and consumed with the Fear Street books by R.L. Stine.  First off, I know people go wild for his Goosebumps series.  My little sister was a big fan when she was into reading.  But I’m sorry, Fear Street eclipses Goosebumps by miles.  Fear Street was everything to me and my friends.  I remember buying them three and four at a time, checking out as many as I could from the library, and borrowing and trading with my friends.

I loved how sometimes he created a series within the Fear Street series.  The Cheerleaders Series, 99 Fear Street, the Fear Street Saga anyone?  Definitely kept things interesting and it was cool to revisit with characters you already read about.  But this series was so extensive, with so many titles, and so many unique stories.  I really don’t know how R.L. does it.  I never tired of these books and he always managed to have me on the edge of my seat.  I remember those late nights reading R.L., heart pumping, adrenaline going, and the fear rising in my chest.  He certainly knew how to write a good thriller.

Man, I really must go pick up some of these books and start re-reading them.

How many of you remember Fear Street?  Did you read them as much as I did or were they not your cup of tea?  Do share!

  1. I was not a fan of Goosebumps but I like Fear Street but my mom never let me read them because I always had nightmares. I was such a scaredy cat. They weren’t that scary as i think back but I guess I was just…silly. Christopher Pike’s books were scarier.

      Alexis I agree. First of Goosebumps was okay…but had nothing on Fear Street in my opinion. I started reading them about the fifth grade I think so I was thoroughly thrilled. But you’re also right about Christopher Pike. Loved his books as well…but he was more sinister than R.L.

  2. I tried Goosebumps but I don’t remember Fear Street. They sound cool.

  3. I LOVED the Fear Street books. I remember enjoying all the ones that I read.
