A happy welcome to another Waiting on Wednesday!
This week we got a book that I was fangirling hard about when I heard it was coming out. I am delighted that this author is making new books for this series. I really liked the previous book, and I can’t wait to read it. Still a month to go, but I am so excited!
So here we go. This week’s most anticipated book is:
R.L. Stine’s hugely successful young adult horror series Fear Street is back after almost 2 decades. Fear Street is a worldwide phenomenon and helped to kick off the young adult craze which is still going strong today. In the second new book in this series, Don’t Stay Up Late, Stine explores the unbridled terror of a damaged young lady sent on a doomed babysitting job.
Ever since a car accident killed her father and put Lisa and her mother into the hospital, Lisa can’t think straight. She’s plagued by nightmares and hallucinations that force her to relive the accident over and over again in vivid detail. When Lisa finds out that a neighbor is looking for a babysitter for her young son, she takes the job immediately, eager to keep busy and shake these disturbing images from her head.
But what promised to be an easy gig turns terrifying when Lisa begins to question exactly who — or what — she is babysitting.
So why do I really want to read this book?
That is an easy one, I love R.L. Stine’s books, and so I was absolutely delighted when I found out he was making new Fear Street novels. The older ones are so hard to find here, so I am delighted there will be new ones that are easily found/bought. Also, that cover just gives me goosebumps, but good goosebumps. I love horror, and R.L. Stine is still the grand king of all that is horror (at least I would think he is). I am really excited and I can’t wait until it is April/May and this gorgeous book comes out. And of course I hope that R.L. Stine will continue writing Fear Street novels.
