Welcome to Dead House
Welcome to Dead House | R. L. Stine
11-year-old Josh and 12-year-old Amanda just moved into the oldest and weirdest house on the block - the two siblings think it might even be haunted. But of course, their parents don't believe them. 'You'll get used to it,' they say. 'Go out and make some new friends.' But the creepy kids are not like anyone Josh and Amanda have ever met before. And when they take a shortcut through the cemetery one night Josh and Amanda learn why.

I loved Goosebumps when I was a kid and I‘ve been wanting something a little lighter to read lately. I figured I‘d take on the goosebumps series and read the ones I loved and finally read the ones I never got around to. #rlstine #goosebumps #horror #juvenile #ebook #libby

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ So #overduepod is reading Goosebumps as their next longreads project #90snostalgia This book really highlights the selfishness of parents and how that can be extremely dangerous and unhealthy for their children. Also gaslighting. A lot of gaslighting going on in this one. Reading this one reminded me how great R.L. Stine is!

This one was a bit of lag in the first chapters but it was a cool little exciting read in the end and actually really creepy for a children's horror novel.

Overall, I'm glad I decided to give the Goosebumps series a try.

I am super behind on my reviews! I‘ve been finishing audiobooks like crazy. I‘ve been doing a lot of data entry at work.

This one was actually pretty good. I love how RL Stine ends his books, like you don‘t actually know what happened.

I read this book 4 years ago and was not feeling it and thought I would give it another try and you know what I really liked it. I think I‘m going to continue this series. I wasn‘t allowed to read Goosebumps as a kid and always wanted to see what I‘ve been missing 😈 +6 pts #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter #Screamathon #Wickedathon #Spookoween #BookSpinBingo

MAJOR SCORE! 🎉🎉🎉 Look at all the treasures I found in the donation bin today at work! 💕📚💕 I'm especially looking forward to rereading the Goosebumps books, I was obsessed with Goosebumps when I was in middle school! I'll probably start them in October! After that I'll most likely pass them on to my niece - she loves spooky books! 😁 #bookhaul

Yes, that's a picture of the 10th Doctor hanging at my work desk! 🤣😂🤣😂

Cute and seasonally appropriate. I bought it for my daughter, a budding daughter, as an example of a creepy kid‘s story. But I couldn‘t resist seeing what all the hype was about. Over all, it was pretty decent. Not too scary, but with just enough suspense to make it exciting. I think she will like it.

I don‘t have time to do the entire #GoosebumpsChallenge. Plus, I‘d get burned out if I tried to read them all in a month. But I can‘t resist reading one or two this month. I think I‘ll try to spread them out over several October‘s. It‘d be fun to read the Fear Street books too!

This made for fun and campy listening on my evening walk today.

I met a brand-new co-worker at the library today, and pretty much the first thing I said to/shouted at her was, “ “HAVE YOU HEARD OF LITSY?!” (because I have NO chill). She joined, though! Hell yeah! Go follow @glamhobbit!

Here‘s what I know about her: her name‘s Gretta; she‘s super-nice; she wore clunky black shoes & striped socks today, which made her look like a hip witch (obviously a good thing in my book).

Roll out the #litsywelcomewagon!

#1 "It will just kill you."
The old house that Amanda and Josh just moved into with their parents is not haunted... Or is it? Things get crazy in this ghostly tale of the ominous haunted house.
As the first book in the series of the Goosebumps franchise, while not my favorite, I'd have to say it's still one of the great ones.

Today marks the first day of my 31 days of #GoosebumpsChallenge! Halloween has always been my favorite holiday and these books were a main part of my childhood. Pulling them all out of an old box and putting them on a shelf made me so nostalgic and excited for this challenge! First up: the absolute classic, Welcome to Dead House 💀

For Episode 11 of my podcast (out today!), I reversed my former scaredy cat ways and finally read a book from the Goosebumps series! Sarah Slusher, founder of the Really Into This pop culture blog, joins me to chat about helicopter parents, reading purely for entertainment, and how scary is *too* scary. Check out the link in my bio or search The SSR Podcast on iTunes/Stitcher/Google Play! 👻

Kaylamburson I never read Goosebumps either since I thought it would be too scary. Honestly, I don‘t think my parents would let me because I got nightmares from that TV show Are You Afraid of the Dark! 4y

Plot: 4/5. A good old-fashioned American family moves to a new home mysteriously inherited—oh, and the whole town is trying to kill you.

Characters: 4/5. The brother/sister duo in this book are believable in their sibling rivalry.

Style: 3.5/5. The writing was to-the-point and simple, but it's also a book that will increase a kid‘s (or an adult‘s!) vocabulary.

Originality: 4/5. A nice modern spin on a spooky archetype.

Overall: 3.5/5.

The Goosebumps series started in 1992 when I was in 5th grade. I was obsessed with these books and eventually moved on to Fear Street in junior high.

I was into creepy/thrilling/strange stories before Goosebumps, but reading this series is what actually made me aware of it. Both of Stine's series helped me identify what I enjoy as a reader.

I was in elementary school when this series started, and I remember my parents buying this debut installment for me from #TheScholasticBookClub. God, I loved that when I was a kid. This book resonated with me because we had moved several times when I was a kid, and there's the natural fears and awkwardness associated with a new town & new friends to make. Best book to start your kids with in this series! #PairWith: Bug Juice Spider Juice, chilled.

[DELETED] 2852984487 I was in 9th grade when these started coming out, but my brother is 4 years younger than I am and he got me hooked on these stories. They were a little young for me but boy were they were fun! 6y

BekahB I was obsessed with the Goosebumps series when I was a kid! I still pick them up from time to time. I read an interview with R.L. Stine in Mental Floss magazine where he said that he's always considered this to be his scariest Goosebumps book. He said he intentionally added more goofy jokes into the rest of the series after this first Goosebumps was published. 👻 6y
Oftencantdecide This was way too scary for me. Of course, I was in third grade when I read it, so I could probably handle it now. 😉 6y

courtney I LOVED Goosebumps when I was little. This is also one of my favorite goosebumps tapes ? "come back! We're hunngryyyyy" 6y
BookNerdBritt I was obsessed with these books! I also loved the "choose your own adventure" ones with the metallic-looking covers that usually ended in being cornered by the monster, implying a horrible death. 6y
BookNerdBritt Also, true story - my elementary school librarian deemed them too scary for under-4th graders, so 3rd grade and younger were not allowed to check out Goosebumps books, but as an alternative were allowed check out books from the parody series... which was called Gooflumps. 6y
