Today’s Topic is: A Halloween Freebie!
My Favourite Point Horror Titles
I love it when you get a freebie topic so as my nod to Halloween; I’ve decided to go with my favourite Point Horror titles. If you have visited this blog before, you may have noticed my love of vintage/retro teen novels. One of my favourite series when I was younger was Point Horror. This series was put out by Scholastic in the late eighties and spanned the whole of the nineties.
Sometimes campy and fun, other times a little more the spooky side, these books were a firm favourite. Although the series did wane in popularity eventually, they were really big with my peer group and we would often swap books with each other. Point Horror is definitely a series I am super-nostalgic about – which is probably why I have been slowly collecting these books again!
Here are my top ten favourites:
1. Beach House by R.L. Stine
2. Trick or Treat by Richie Tankersley Cusick
3. Funhouse by Diane Hoh
4. Camp Fear by Carol Ellis
5. The Forbidden Game by L.J. Smith
6. Dream Date by Sinclair Smith
7. Twins by Caroline B. Cooney
8. The Accident by Diane Hoh
9. Beach Party by R. L. Stine
10. Fatal Secrets by Richie Tankersley Cusick
I went through a phase where I read a ton of RL Stine. I wonder what I’d think about those books now that I’m an adult. I loved them as a kid.
