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)
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 ?
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.
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. 🤷♀️
I *may* have acquired some old school snackage. McDonald‘s chicken nuggets: so gross, so good, or both? 😜
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!
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! 😱💙🐻
My #ThrowbackReadathon holds are starting to come in! It has begun...
Can‘t wait! 🤓📚
