Re-visit Your Childhood Scares this Halloween

Halloween is the perfect season to re-visit those old favourites that had you reading by torchlight under the duvet and then having to leg it from your bed to the bathroom and back.

Suze has only just moved to California and she already has to put her ghost hunting skills to the test after a vicious spirit starts making life at her new school miserable. Oh, and she’s also totally head over heels with Jesse. A ghost.

I never actually finished this series, but I have seriously fond memories of devouring the first few books. It’s so much fun!

I'm a complete wuss so the ‘Goosebumps’ titles I read were very carefully picked and I never binge read them, but when I did pick one up I'd be reading all night. Quick, easy, fun and so many people’s introduction to a love of reading, RL Stine is a total legend.

Ah, Darren Shan. I haven’t actually read this series yet – it’s on my never-ending TBR! – but most people I've spoken to that have devour all 12 books in one go and re-read them until they’re falling apart - the perfect mix of a racing plot, gore and spook. 

I have read Darren Shan’s ‘Zom-B’ series though and that’s a perfect Halloween read. In fact, I reckon everything with Darran Shan’s touch was made for this time of year.

My love friend Chelley has been running a Point Horror book club in an effort to re-read childhood favourites from the collection and introduce those who missed it. She leads wonderful reviews and discussions on a different book each month so it’s the perfect time to jump in and join for October.

What childhood scares do you love to revisit around Halloween?

  1. Fabulous thought. I have been meaning to revisit Goosebumps, along with others that I missed when I was young.


Leave a message, I'd love to hear from you!
