Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic is Back To School Freebie — anything “back to school” related like 10 favorite books I read in school. I chose to do Top Ten Books I read when I was in school. Most of these I read in junior high or elementary, so I am going way back.
Yes I did have pretty much every single Goosebumps book ever made at that time!
So first off it has been forever since I read an R.L. Stine book, so I thought I would give it a go. Instead I should have been just saying no.
This book kicks off with Caitlyn our main character who eventually meets a guy named Blade and this is insta love of the worst kind. There is another girl named Deena Fear who believes that Blade is both hers and Caitlyn’s which is all types of strange. She is a real weirdo.
Caitlyn does some real crazy stuff and some stuff goes down with Blade. It isn’t really a spoiler because obviously the title is called The Dead Boyfriend so obviously Blade somehow ends up a gonner.
Anyways lets just say Blade is backkkkkkkkkkkk. Caitlyn is one of the worst point of views I have ever read from. I am sure my ten or eleven year old self would have loved this book, but I just can’t handle anymore of these R.L. Stine books. As history repeats itself this book does end on a twist as it serves from my memories of the Stine books. Sometimes nostalgia just does not work out, but maybe it will for you.
