Hello my fellow Bookworms and Pageturners,
As it is the spookiest time of the year, I was thinking about what could I read to reflect the season, and all of a sudden I was overcome by a wave of spooky nostalgia as I remembered all of the times I curled up as a young teen (which is a scary amount of time ago now) reading the creepy scrawlings of one R L Stine, and it got me thinking, what are your favourite Goosebump books?
