PostHeaderIcon Goosebumps: The Ghost Next Door

It’s hard keeping track of all the Goosebumps books my 9yr old has read over the years. Seems like each week he’s reading 4 or 5 of them, and it’s amazing he hasn’t run out yet. Somehow, though, he always seems to find ones he hasn’t read.

This week from his stack he’s picked out The Ghost Next Door, which is about girl named Hannah who finds herself with a very interesting new neighbor – a ghost boy! He disappears and reappears with little warning, making hardly any noises. The house he lives in is all but deserted and he’s so pale. He’s got to be a ghost, right?

As with all the Goosebumps books, this is an excellent read and keeps you interested clear up until the end. Comes highly recommended from 9yr old Chase!

You can see more Goosebumps books as well as other books from R.L. Stine at Amazon

Another one of 9-yr-old Chase’s favorite series within a series is the Monster Blood books. It’s about just what you’d think it would be – monster blood! There’s 4 books in the original series, plus another added in the Horrorland series just recently. You can find the books as follows at Amazon:

Monster Blood (Classic Goosebumps)
Monster Blood II
Monster Blood III
Monster Blood IV
Monster Blood for Breakfast! (Goosebumps HorrorLand)

The five books above are sure to keep young readers that need a good spooky book interested for awhile. Even several months later, Chase can still tell you what the whole series was about and how awesome the ending was. Most Goosebumps books also have snips of the next book in the back, making them want to go out and seek the next in the series.

PostHeaderIcon Goosebumps Books – Night of the Living Dummy

This recommendation comes from the 9-yr old boy, who absolutely loves Goosebumps books. He’s picked out a few of his favorites, which I’ll be sharing over the next few weeks in parts. Yes, he really does read THIS MUCH that we had to break up this selection of books in to parts!

Night of the Living Dummy

To start off, we’re going to share Chase’s love for a particular series within the Goosebumps series – Night of the Living Dummy. These he’s read a few times, and are fantastic for those just starting out reading Goosebumps. They encourage kids to keep reading on their favorite characters, then expand to a favorite author.

Here’s a list of all the Night of the Living Dummy books:

Night Of The Living Dummy
Night of the Living Dummy II
Night Of The Living Dummy III
Bride of the Living Dummy
Revenge of the Living Dummy (from Horrorland Series)

5 books in all, each guaranteed to spook little readers, yet keep them begging for more of not just our friend Slappy, but Goosebumps in general. Highly recommended by 9yr old Chase!
