Book Review 7: Party Games by R.L. Stine

Title: Party GamesParty Games Cover
Author: R.L. Stine
Release Date: September 30, 2014

Her friends warn her not to go to Brendan Fear’s birthday party at his family’s estate on mysterious Fear Island. But Rachel Martin has a crush on Brendan and is excited to be invited. Brendan has a lot of party games planned. But one game no one planned intrudes on his party—the game of murder. As the guests start dying one by one, Rachel realizes to her horror that she and the other teenagers are trapped on the tiny island with someone who may want to kill them all. How to escape this deadly game? Rachel doesn’t know whom she can trust. She should have realized that nothing is as it seems… on Fear Island.

R.L. Stine makes his triumphant return to Shadyside, a town of nightmares, shadows, and genuine terror, and to the bestselling series that began his career writing horror for the juvenile market, in the new Fear Street book Party Games.


Walking down Fear Street (all over again…)


The very first R.L. Stine book that I read was The New Girl (see my prized book above) and I was instantly hooked. I was too young to be going to the book shop on my own back then so I had someone get the books for me. Dull days became interesting (think magical car like the one in the Cataluna Chronicles), and hot summer days just became a little bit chilly (thanks, 99 Fear Street). When I entered high school I was just so relieved that my school wasn’t populated with students straight out of Shadyside high (maybe, I don’t know), though the books sure did make a good source of daydreams while the teachers droned on and on.


Hearing that R.L. Stine is coming out with Party Games (you can read Chapter 1 here) after twenty years brings back a lot of memories like the scent of new books and the excitement of having a pile of books waiting to be read. I can’t wait to read it and relive taking that stroll (or maybe run) down Fear Street once again.
