I have been reading A LOT of PIKE lately, so I decided to break it up a bit and grab a Fear Street STINE book. There is a vast difference between these two author's writing style, and now that I am in my 20's I much prefer the more mature style of PIKE. However, Stine will always hold a nostalgic place in my heart and his books are incredibly quick reads with relatively interesting plots and characters.

In BROKEN HEARTS, I must say, the character development goes much deeper than many of Stines o
Out of all the Fear Street books I've read, this one wasn't one of my favorites. It was a bit confusing how the POV jumped around from person to person. Also, it wasn't as scary as I'd hoped. It wasn't crap-my-pants scary, but it was creepy enough to engage me. Though I have to give props for the culprit at the end. I had no idea the whole time. I was convinced it was a certain character the whole time and was shocked when it wasn't them.

In the last FS book I read, the girl characters were supe

Not the best Fear Street I've read.

While there are some suspenseful parts, the book honestly feels depressing to read sometimes, probably because the first part consists of Jodie and her sister yelling at each other, Jodie thinking gloomily about her messy life at home, or Jodie insulting people from rage. To me, it makes the book almost unpleasant to read since I read these books for fun and action.

The horror scenes still diverts me from the gloomy parts as it keeps me turning pages to see wha

Leave it to R.L. Stine to give me a surprise ending.

I loved his play on having us see different characters and what they were going through. If he hadn't of let me see the character of Josie and what she was going through I prolly would've slapped her. (I realize it's a book and you can't slap the characters, but I prolly would've slammed the book closed and pretended it was harming her.) If there was one thing I wish I would've seen more from in the characters it was the guys. I realize it wasn
I remember I started reading this one weekend and couldn't put it down. I had to know what was going to happen next. Great story!!

Good-reads update - Broken Hearts by R.L. Stine - Book 1
Broken hearts is a mind blowing book. It has twists and turns that you never would have expected. If you like thrillers, then this is a book for you. It all starts with three girls, going horse-back riding in the woods…

Once upon a time, there were these 3 sisters. Any couldn’t do anything without each other. While on the horse-back ride, Rachel, the youngest, asked Marissa, the oldest

I read this book a while back, and it was very good. The plot was interesting and exciting enough to make me want to keep reading until I got to the end. The twists were pretty nice and the climax at the end was nothing more than action-packed.

The plot is that it's nearing Valentine's Day and things are looking good...until high school students Josie and Melissa start getting threatening valentines. And then, things turn deadly. Will they live long enough to see Valentine's Day?

Watch out, may contain Spoilers!

I must say it started off quite awesome, with them going horseback riding and one ending up falling

But sadly, the rest of the book wasn't that good. Josie was just, sorry for my language, a bitch, a really big selfish bitch. When she started getting threatening letters I was just hoping they were true. I don"t want to wish anyone dead, but sorry. Poor Erica had to give up everything for Rachel, since Josie just does what she wants and leaves Erica with the mess. :
A perfect storm of absent parents, a boyfriend-dumping bad sister, a beautiful brain damaged good sister, an invisible dutiful younger sister, numerous resentful and obsessed boys, and lethal skating parties. Awesome. But why must Stine always kill off the family dog?

Revisiting Fear Street, part two.

Getting a hankering for Fear Street after many years and deciding to look for any used copies I could find, this was the book that kept popping up in my mind, for whatever reason. I'm not really sure why; perhaps it was my favorite when I was a kid, although I don't remember it being so. In fact, I didn't remember anything about it other than someone (view spoiler).

In any case, while the writing
Yes, I'm actually giving a Fear Street book four stars. Why? Well, let's see...a character that I hate dies (Awesome!), (view spoiler) There were some red herrings, but they turned out to only enhance the book, not distract you. Normally, I don't m ...more
This is one of my favorite R.L. Stine books, especially with the addition of Josie's sister being handicapped. Deaths are gruesome as always.

This was a good book. If you want to read a short horror story then these are the books to read. I love how there were never any boring parts. It was always suspenseful, but not a super page turner. In my mind I had ideas of who could be the murderer, but in the end none of my suspects were it. I really enjoyed the plot and how it really shocked me in the end. I read a few of the books in the series 'Fear Street' when I was in 3rd grade, and I really enjoyed them and wanted to read more of them. ...more
I may have read other RL Stine books when I was a kid, but this is the one that stuck with me.
This was one of my very favorite Fear Street books as a kid, so I was excited to re-read this one and see how it held up.

This is still, in my opinion, one of the best. It has the usual Fear Street elements and has its surprise ending, but for me, the main part of this book has always been Rachel, and that storyline was just as good as I remembered. The family's suffering after Rachel's accident was real, and gave depth to an otherwise shallow book. Well done!
Broken Hearts is about 2 girls name Josie and Melissa, who is receiving threatening valentines from someone. This book grabs my attention immediately and makes me want to continue reading. While reading Broken Hearts, it always make me wonder what will happen next. The beggining was okay, but soon it gets really interesting and mystery. The author didn't made the book boring and it didn't end so suddenly. Over all, I love reading this book.

When I was in grade school my life pretty much revolved around Fear Street, Babysitter's Club and Sweet Valley books. I remember loving the the Super Chillers the best because they were a little bit thicker than the rest and always a little bit scarier. This one sticks out the most besides the Cheerleaders series which I remember being my favorite. I'd love to read these again!
Mario Rocchetta
R.L. Stine's "Broken Hearts" was a great read for our book club considering the time of year - Valentine's Day! I found the book quite fun to get through and I was left guessing who was behind the murders up until almost the last chapter. Fun and light, I'd check this one out if you're a fan of 90s Young Adult horror!

I started this book on 09/28/2009. I finished this book on 09/29/2009.

Another R.L. Stine book. I remembered parts of it but some of it was a surprise to me. I love reading his books now because they are an easy read for me. And sometimes and easy read is just what I need after reading a deep book. It was okay so I gave it a two star.
These books really suck, but I didn't know as a kid. The romance was not too saucy for the age group, the horror was cheesy, the climaxes expected, comfortable. Ice breaks and someone (oh no) almost falls through it, an innocent puppy is killed with an everyday object, and the killer is not who you thought it was.
As far as retro YA goes, this is pretty standard. The writing isn't fabulous, but I had a blast walking down memory lane. I used to read this series when I was in grade school. Love! Unfortunately, the plot and dialogue isn't top notch... for more reviews,!

More like 4.9 this book kept me guessing through the whole thing and when you actually find out who it is it really unbelievable. But the big selling point for this book for me is the really creepy valentine the main characters keep getting. Probably my favorite fear street book
Novel ini benar-benar bikin aku tegang, dan aku sampai gak bisa menebak siapa pelakunya. Pelakunya sangat sempurna memainkan peran dia sampai gak ada satu orang yang tau dialah pelakunya. Valentine penuh bencana hihihi untunglah aku tidak pernah suka hari Valentine.
In my opinion, this is the second best fear street, the first being "The Knife". It is suspenseful and kept me guessing to the end.I'm usually someone who can guess the ending quite easily and yet this book was a challenge. I loved everything about this book.
Sarah Aguilar
This book is so good.I mean even at the first few pages it already had action and danger.I am only on the third chapter when i get to the next few chapter i will come back to this website to write it down!
Mollie Trail
I did not expect the ending, and that earns the author something. Plus, R. L. Stine had a great deal of minimalism in his story telling but still wove some good imagery in there as well.
Indah Threez Lestari
Lempeng, ah. Tidak berkesan.
Padahal thriller.

Tapi mungkin ini efek baca stripping Fear Street R.L. Stine Halloween kemarin. Jadi pas baca buku ini gw udah keburu bosan.
One of my favorite Fear Street books :)
Can hardly guess the ending, plus it's thicker than the others and has more intricate plots.
