For All Fear Street Lovers

I know it's been awhile, Fear Street fans. Approximately three years or so? While A.M. Stine and I finished blogging all the Fear Street books, we never stopped thinking about Fear Street books. Obviously. So three years later, I finally got around to doing what I meant to do as soon as we were done with the blog - get a little organized. With lists and things.

First thing, you'll see that I have created a new page with all the Fear Street books we've blogged, in order (the Fear Street Books, an index). So if you're the type who likes to read things in order (clearly A.M. and I do not fall under that category), you can peruse over there.

Also, just for fun, I've put together some lists of different themes of books. R. L. does like to fall back on some stereotypical horror themes, which is okay. It only makes me love him more. Here are some of the major themes. Stay tuned for some more personalized favourite lists coming soon.

Vampires

Vampires were so hot about three years ago. These were my faves to blog about and I tried to do as many as possible. If vampires are your thing, and why wouldn't they be, enjoy R.L.'s interpretation of Twilight. Just click on the link to head there.

Goodnight Kiss


Zombies

Zombies were 100% A.M.'s thing. If I ever accidentally ended up with a Fear Street about zombies, she would basically be despondent (and it was really hard to tell, because if you look back over these recaps, you'll see the zombie twist would almost always happen at the very end and you never see it coming!) These without a doubt are some of the books with the biggest wtf factor, so suspend disbelief and any sense of logic, and enjoy.

New Year’s Party (Part One) (Part Two)

Evil twins

Such a horror classic, and a great way to get a plot moving along. Evil twins (or evil siblings pretending to be twins) often pop up in the Fear Street books, to the point that I started to keep an eye on A.M.

I read a book while ago I SWEAR is a Fear Street book or written by R.L. Stine but I cannot find it anywhere and it's driving me crazy! In the book the killer turns out to be a girl who killed ugly people. Her best friend had a bad accident and caused her face to be all messed up and so she tried to kill her because she was obsessed with making the world a prettier place I suppose. One incident I remember pretty well involved the girl with the messed up face having a plastic bag thrown over her head and it was suffocating her and she tried getting it off and her fingernails dug into the stitches on her face... Maybe you can help me out.

I should also mention that I'm pretty sure these girls are on a college campus but not 100% positive. And the incident might have involved the girl falling through a glass door or window that's how her face got disfigured.

if you want to keep the blog going you can review the ghost of fear street books.
I know there for kids but there still kind of fear street books.

Aww I'm so pleased that people still remember our little blog! Especially since I re-read our posts like a once a week. That's normal...right?

Did you ever noticed that Mary O'Connor was NEVER mentioned in the Fear Street Seniors after her book "Last Chance?" Why did R. L. not just kill her?!

Certain it's Pretty Please.


Just found this site and just love it. But can't find a review of my fave non-Fear Street Stine book, The Girlfriend!?! Shannon is the shit! :)

It feels like one of the categories should be “The plain/ugly girl did it cuz ugly people are clearly crazy/evil.”
Also “the physically/verbally abusive guy is hot so he gets the girl in the end.”

But I suppose those are both spoilers and...hopefully not tropes that attract people to books. Though, well, Twilight.

I was surprised that under the "evil twin" category you didn't list any of the 99 Fear Street books! Calli and Cody! Calli the evil ghost! Ah, 99 Fear Street... they were some of my very favorites.
