I’ve decided I want more nostalgia in my reading life and I’ve been adding in some Fear Street books to my monthly TBRs! I’ll be sharing mini reviews throughout the year, so make sure to tune for all the old school fun!
SILENT NIGHT by R.L. Stine:
Beautiful, cold Reva thinks she can have whatever and whoever she wants. After all, her daddy owns Dalby Department Stores. Now, someone has some surprises in store for her. Robbery? Terror? Murder? Someone wants to treat Reva to a holiday she’ll never forget.
Oh Reva! Being cruel and spoiled has gotten her far in life, but now it’s all coming back to haunt her. I absolutely loved the department store setting and how it lent itself to the progression of this tale. The cast of secondary characters truly help to make Reva’s villainous vibes shine and I loved all of their interactions. Now I’m going to have to hunt down a copy of SILENT NIGHT 2 for next holiday season! 4⭐
THE NEW YEAR’S PARTY by R.L. Stine:
P.J. wasn’t supposed to die. It was just a practical joke, no big deal. But P.J. has a bad heart…
The kids at Reenie’s Christmas party couldn’t tell the police what they’d done, so they hid the body…and then it disappeared. Now someone is killing them, one by one. Someone is taking P.J.’s revenge…but who?
An innocent joke gone terribly wrong and a murderer on the loose creates a recipe of fun when paired with endless teenage drama! I loved the older timeline woven into this story and the way everything ended up coming together at the end. While you never really bond with the characters, it’s not needed to have fun reading this revenge story! 4⭐
