I used to read these books when I was younger. They were forever checked out at my school library. I loved how creepy they were and how the story never had a happy ending. This was a perfect red for October the big blue hulking creatures with bugs crawling in and out if there fur and their insatiable hunger for human flesh.

#43 "He's a real animal!"
Wanna play a game? Ginger and her twin brothers are lost in a part of the woods that is very strange. They're on a camping trip and cannot find their parents. But what they do find are beasts! Beasts who can talk. And they want to play a game... a game of survival!

Day 22 of the #GoosebumpsChallenge is special for me because it features my absolute favorite Goosebumps book of the series! (Tagged)

JenlovesJT47 I never read the Goosebumps books but I adored Fear Street. Did you read any of those? That reminds me, I want to read some Fear Street books for Halloween! I‘m lucky my digital library has most of them but I still try to collect them from the used bookstore. 🧡 13mo
TheReadingMermaid @JenlovesJT47 I never got into Fear Street as a child but as an adult I am reading the relaunch books and I am enjoying them. 13mo

Woohoo! The "Beast from the East" has finally arrived! Ok ok, I know it's not much snow at all at the moment... but when the boss gives you a snow day, you take it! I can finally read for longer than 30 minutes ?

Cathythoughts “ the beast from the east “ is meant to go mad later today 😳 2y
LiteraryinLititz Enjoy your snow day!! 2y

The Beast from the East is one of a few surviving Goosebumps books, out of my vast collection. 😛 When moving to a new house, my box of them was misplaced in a bad mouldy cellar, which spoiled them, plus allergies I have against trying to help them... I'll definitely look to find some again, including The Cuckoo Clock of Doom as my top favourite. 🐤🕰 #ThrowbackReadathon @monalyisha @Clwojick That was 15 years ago, with The Beast as a last I read.

Mehso-so

I averaged my childhood rating (PICK!!! [all 3 exclamation points necessary!]) & my present-day rating (pan [lack of enthusiasm enthusiasm denoted by lack of punctuation]) & I‘m giving this a “so-so” rating.

Did I laugh about the fact that one of the monsters was named Spork? You betcha. Am I able to understand why I loved these in the early 90‘s & why kids still do today? Sure. As an adult, would I choose to read another one? Heck no. 🤷‍♀️

Clwojick 😂😂😂😂Heck No! 2y
Clwojick I recently read Welcome to Dead House and I was basically just 😶😑😕 all the way through. I‘m still going to attempt to get in the few I got for this readathon, but‘s not quite so high on my list anymore. FEAR Street was a way better reread for me. 📖 2y
monalyisha @Clwojick It was one of the books I was more skeptical about going in. I sincerely doubted that it was going to hold up. But after my Wayside success I was like, “Hey! Anything‘s possible!” 2y

I *may* have acquired some old school snackage. McDonald‘s chicken nuggets: so gross, so good, or both? 😜

#ThrowbackReadathon

MrBook Yesss!!! 😆🙌🏻 2y
Meeko93 👌 2y
CocoReads So gross they‘re good. I‘m leaning towards those for lunch today—working over and don‘t want to take the time to go home for a healthier option. 2y

hes7 Yum! 2y
MoniqueReads305 @CocoReads is right. So gross they're good. I love McNuggets. 2y
monalyisha @CocoReads @MoniqueReads305 @hes7 @Clwojick @Meeko93 @MrBook I‘ve gotta be honest, though; I prefer Wendy‘s nuggets. Dipped in a chocolate frosty. 🙈 2y
MoniqueReads305 @monalyisha Wendy's nuggets are definitely better. They're less "gross" and don't make me feel as guilty. 2y
CocoReads My favorite nuggets are actually Chick-fil-A but we don‘t have one on our side of town. Probably a good thing or else I‘d be even more plump. 2y
Bookish.SAM Probably one of the best snacks you could have picked for a throwback readathon 👍 (edited) 2y
Clwojick @monalyisha dipped in chocolate frosty!? 😱 ahahahhahah! And you think that granny apples and ranch is weird. 😂😂 2y
monalyisha Hahahaha @Clwojick , I knew that was coming! 2y
MrBook Lol, Wendy's is indeed better. With ranch, mmmmm.... 2y
monalyisha @Clwojick It‘s not my fault! My friend Becky dared me to do it! In fact, I‘m pretty sure it was a Double Dog Dare! 🐶🐶😱 And then... I liked it. 🤷‍♀️😅 2y

My next #ThrowbackReadathon book kinda matches my breakfast. 💜🙌🏻

Book: “The Beast from the East” (Goosebumps # 43)

Breakfast: “Good Morning” Supercharged Shake (blueberries, bananas, peanut butter, granola, fresh apple juice, coconut milk & chia seeds).

Have a great day, everyone!

trazo I love Goosebumps! I got my little sister a set of these for Christmas! Enjoy! 😉 2y
KrystleTheBookSlayer My read for today is Silent Night (Fear Street), I used to love R.L. Stine! 2y
AlobelThee I still have this book on my desk shelf, as a Goosebumps favourite. 😃💜 2y

Real-life problem: I can‘t decide which Goosebumps book to read for the #ThrowbackReadathon. Here are the tag lines:

Welcome to Dead House: “It will just kill you.”

The Werewolf of Fever Swamp: “Who‘s afraid of the big, bad wolf?”

The Beast from the East: “He‘s a real animal!”

There‘s something appealing about starting at the beginning, but I love werewolves, & who can resist a book about man-eating, fuzzy, blue teddy bears? HELP! 😱💙🐻

BookishGirl06 I‘d pick Welcome to dead house 2y
Clwojick I vote ALL OF THEM! 2y
Clwojick But if I had to choose one, I say Beast From the East. 😱 2y

monalyisha @Clwojick That‘s the one I‘m leaning towards. It‘s got a *really* silly premise... & I think, for this particular endeavor, the sillier the better. 😝 But then the werewolf one is set in Florida, & I‘ll be traveling to Florida for a vacation right after the Readathon, so that‘s kind of neat. & I know some other people are planning to read Dead House; it‘d be fun to do a buddy read. But I just read a haunted house book & am kinda all haunted out. (edited) 2y
monalyisha @Clwojick So many things to consider!!! 😩😅 2y
Librariana Werewolf! Florida! 😁 It'll make for an interesting topic of conversation? 2y

My #ThrowbackReadathon holds are starting to come in! It has begun...

Can‘t wait! 🤓📚

monalyisha Note: I may be abusing my position of power in order to keep these babies longer than the Library Gods intended (I don‘t think they‘re in high-demand). 🤫😉 (edited) 2y
saresmoore A Ring of Endless Light! ♥️ 2y
monalyisha @saresmoore It was my absolute fave... but somehow, back in the 90‘s, I didn‘t realize that it was Book # 4 in a series! (How could I have missed that?!) I was tempted to start with the first one for the readathon but that wouldn‘t have been authentic. Oh, what complicated webs of nostalgia we weave! 😩😅 (edited) 2y

saresmoore @monalyisha If it makes you feel better, I‘ve read the series & ROEL is the best, by far. I don‘t think it‘s necessary to read them in order. But I do recommend reading the others at some point! 2y
monalyisha @saresmoore Actually, that does make me feel better! Thanks! 2y
Clwojick ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ 2y
Clwojick I searched two thrift stores today to find The Phantom Tollbooth and Sideways Stories from Wayside School today with no luck! Thank goodness we gave ourselves a ton of time to get our hands on these books. Lol. 2y

Taking it super old school for my first horror book. I lived for Goosebumps, and I've sadly lost so many of my copies, luckily I have one battered copy left. #AllHallowsRead #Scarybooks

read_diverse_books Omg, I still have this book somewhere. 😂 It's so ridiculous and awesome. 3y
Bibliosa @read_diverse_books Right?! I loved this one. 3y
