Source Spoilers Abound! By the way, this list is in no particular order. Raise your hand if you grew up reading Goosebumps books so much that you consider them an essential part of your childhood experience, as if R. Stine himself was your uncle who would visit on foggy, stormy nights to tell creepy stories by the fireplace. Or maybe you are a parent or current child, looking into these fun, scary novels for kids for the first time.
Below are ten of what I personally feel are the most enjoyable Goosebumps books from the original series. But the realtor neglected to mention that their new neighbors are a little undead—and need the blood of Amanda and her family to survive. The first Goosebumps book in my top ten list is also the first Goosebumps book ever written in and is a classic by default.
But it also happens to be, in my opinion, one of the best Goosebumps books out there. Featuring an old, creaky house to creep readers and Amanda!
Closeup of Goosebumps 1 Source 2. And can you really blame her? She wanted to spend her summer in malls, shopping with friends, not at a camp in the middle of nowhere with a cold, slimy lake. Now because of her attitude no one wants to be her friend, not even to go swimming with her in the lake. A lake with something lurking beneath it This particularly scary Goosebumps book features one of the most surreal scenes in the Goosebumps series—after Sarah has tried to fake her drowning and come too close to succeeding for real.
Not simply a cliffhanger ending, but a true shocker. Closeup of the cover for Goosebumps 56 Source 3. The dummies are alive and Mr.
Wood wants Slappy gone—and the sisters as his slaves. Contrary to what the TV series has people believe, "Slappy" was not the original evil dummy in the Goosebumps series.
Wood makes a malicious, truly frightening villain in his unrepentant evil. Source 4. The Ghost Next Door The Plot: Hannah wakes after a horrifying nightmare involving a ferocious fire in her bedroom to discover changes to her world.
The house next door has been sold seemingly overnight. She befriends the boy who moves in, but quickly notices something odd about him: like the way he disappears every time she turns around. Definitely one of the darker Goosebumps novels. Goosebumps book 10, cover closeup. Source 5. The Werewolf of Fever Swamp The Plot: Grady, his sister, and their scientist parents have moved to a new home - as starts many of the Goosebumps books, it seems!
This new house is positioned near a forest, with a creepy swamp. Grady makes friends with another boy his age, a neighbor named Will, who soon tells Grady the tale of the swamp: a hundred years ago the townspeople caught fever from the swamp.
Some died while others went crazy. Grady begins to experience things such as a fever of his own, hearing howling, and a potentially dangerous "swamp hermit. The Werewolf of Fever Swamp tackles a horror classic! The swamp adds a creepy atmosphere. Source 6. One Day at Horrorland The Plot: The Morris family and friend Clay are driving about, searching for an amusement park—but not the one they come across.
The family makes the best of the situation, however, and decides to enjoy some of the attractions HorrorLand offers. But the rides nearly kill them and the games are, well, monstrous. This Goosebumps book takes the innocence and fun and excitement of theme parks and twists it. The park attractions are creative, so much fun to read about that you sometimes forgot to be scared. But as a kid this addition to the Goosebumps series definitely made me think twice about making unplanned stops on family vacations!
Closeup of Goosebumps The camp welcomes the kids into its fold. And why do the winning kids keep disappearing? This is one of the weirder Goosebumps novels, for sure! And I love it for that. Source 8. And creepy Stanley, the hired help, is making weird references to scarecrows.
But the kids soon see for themselves that the scarecrows are something to be feared. Again, inanimate objects provide a source of fear in the Goosebumps series! There is something inherently creepy about scarecrows with their eyes following you everywhere, always towering over our heads out in the fields. I would certainly be nervous if I looked out my window one night and saw its shadow—to imagine that shadow moving sets a kid on edge!
This is a closeup of the cover of The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight. Source 9. To do so she needs the perfect creepy Halloween costume. She buys a mask from a local shop, a mask that is more terrifying than all the others and feels like real human skin.
But as Halloween night goes by Carly begins acting strange, aggressive even. But no problem: just take the mask off, right? Supposedly the idea of the Goosebumps book The Haunted Mask came from a real-life scenario in which R.
Anyone who has tried on a mask in a Halloween store or worn one the whole night knows that feeling of dark, tight air around you, threatening to suffocate. Imagine being stuck inside it! They see the various rooms, including jail cells and torture chambers. But eventually Sue spots something else: a man dressed all in black, seemingly following them.
After the children are accidentally separated from their tour group, the man in black attempts to capture them, leading them to a terrifyingly confusing night and a trip to the past that will reveal dark secrets. And dark this Goosebumps book is.
