Today’s Booktube Bite: Nostalgic Scary Books

I thought that for this week’s video and hopefully for the next upcoming Booktube Bites posts that I would find some cool bookish videos having to do with horror novels or anything Halloween (since it’s coming up in a couple of weeks). Youtuber, James Rolfe, focuses on “Nostalgic Scary Books” for his segment “Lookin’ at Books”. In the video he reminisces about two popular children’s horror series, Goosebumps and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

Both of these series are fantastic and Goosebumps was my go-to horror book as a kid. I will have to disagree with his point about the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books not being scary at all. They absolutely terrified me as a kid and they scared me so bad. The artwork is creepy too!

Enjoy the video and have a great weekend! Tell me what your favorite nostalgic scary books are in the comments 🙂

  1. It’s gotta be Goosebumps. They are the BOMB. Honestly, I don’t think they ever scared me but I loved them. I read LOADS of them and owned maybe 40 or 50. I don’t know if you read it but I really liked this one, it was called The Ghost Next Door or something. It wasn’t scary but that twist at the end though. I will never forget it. I think I read the Goosebumps I owned like several times each.

    1. Same here. I actually think I read the entire series and couple of the special edition spin-off books as well. I can’t remember the plot for “The Ghost Next Door” but one f my favorite memorable ones was called “Night of the Living Dummy”. Goosebumps are awesome!
