This is a pretty good book. I haven't read many of R L Stine's YA books, but I think his kid's books are better (like the goosebumps series)

When it comes to vampire books, there are very few, if any, that I ever really like. Dracula for instance, because it's a true classic and it has a lot of surrounding material to the story. Or the 1980's-set Let the Right One In. With these Twilighty vampire YA novels, there isn't any value in reading them, at least in my opinion, because they follow the same pattern and are for the most part really just a bunch of angsty teen melodrama and inappropriate, over-the-top blood/gore.

Whoah! This was everything a good vampire thriller should be exciting, fascinating and disturbing!

This is probably the first teen vampire book I've ever read and it certainly gave the genre a good reputation! I've always been a fan of the Goosebumps series (and I still am), but then I found this and was totally blown away! The Goosebumps series are totally tame compared to this and I'd definitely say this book would give younger kids real nightmares!

The twins' situation felt real throughout wit
Es leer R.L. Stine y pensar en Goosebumps, así que cuando encontre este libro obviamente quise leerlo.
No defraudó las expectativas que tenía. Una historia corta, entretenida y... me teletransportó a mi infancia cuando veía Le temes a la oscuridad, Escalofríos, Cuentos de la cripta, etc etc
Apr 16, 2008 Sara rated it it was ok
If I read one more insipid story about girls, vampires, and rampant weeping, I may go mad. There's near-infinite potential in a story about a pair of twins, one of whom is a vampire and one of whom is not. Somehow, Stine manages to erase all of that potential with a cardboard villain with ridiculous voice, girls who are boo-hooing their way through life, and characterization that is flogged to the point of obscurity. The ONLY reason it rates two stars is that the plot hangs together. Pretty much ...more

I have to admit that Dangerous girls Is a quite dangerous book

If you like to read mysterious and thrilling books you have got to read "Dangerous Girls" written by R.L. Stine. It is about twin girls, Destiney and Livvey, who are about 18 years old. They sign up to be on camp council. So they spend the summer watching little kids at Camp Blue Moon.The cover and selection on the back made this book look extreamely promising. The book first begins to strain at the very begining at the summer camp. A
Feb 02, 2014 April rated it it was ok
Though this book is pretty good and certainly not lacking in ideas, I must say that I was a little disappointed that it was written in such a fast and simple manner. I'm used to that writing style for Stine's children's books, but I think I expected a little more when it came to a book geared towards teenagers.
Still, this book is a beautiful tragedy. The cliffhangers are as enticing as ever, and although most of his hints can be seen from miles away, there were a few moments I didn't see coming.

Recommends it for: to anyone who loves horror or vampires.
just when you think everyone in your family is trustworthy, someone will turn and stab you in the back. you gotta be careful in alot of situations.

Ho comprato ieri nella bancarella dietro casa nel paese di montagna dove sono stato un libro edito da Mondadori, che mi ha incuriosito, che già conoscevo di sfuggita, e che lo sconticino mi ha indotto a procurarmi. Visto soprattutto che tratta di vampiri, tema di mio interesse. Fa parte della collana “Super brividi”, composta da romanzini con tocco soprannaturale che la Mondadori ritiene di dover riunire, nonostante nel paese d’origine abbiano copertine diverse e destinazione differente.

Dangerous Girls (Book One)

Author: R.L Stine

Book Length: 320 Pages

Cover: I love this cover, it is an original vampire cover before they were known as glittery, self loathing beings. The art is beautiful and the vampire in the background grabs my eyes and wont let go. Love it!

Summary: Destiny Weller and her twin sister, Livvy, return from their summer vacation with an overpowering thirst –– an inhuman desire to drink blood.

It has been a long time since the last time I read a book by R.L. Stine. Not wanting to read Twilight recommended by my friends because it's too long, I decided to read something also related to a vampire story. Destiny and Livvy Weller are twin sisters who go on a summer camp trip. After they return home from their camp, they feel strange. They are desired for blood and soon realize that they are turning into vampires. Later, the girls find out that their own father is a vampire hunter and he t ...more

I've been a fan of R.L. Stine and his work since I was nine years old. I've been a vampire fan even longer. I finally got around to reading this one.

I liked this, but I didn't love it. The characters themselves are okay, but a little two-dimensional. The writing was definitely Stine's, but there were also some problems with it. Mostly with the dialogue. It seemed that the characters said one another's names way too much, enough that it felt unrealistic.

The story itself was interesting, though I

I absolutely loved this book. It kept me on the edge of my set. I never thought Livy would turn her back on destiny like that, or that destiny would kill Renz as she did. I really didn't expect their father to be theRESTOROR!!!!This book is by far the best vampire book I have ever read. I'm highly looking forward to reading the second book. I can not wait to see what will happen!
Alysha Speer
Destiny and her twin, Livvy, both return from Camp Blue Moon with a thirst. A thirst for blood. They've realized they are becoming vampires.
Renz transformed them under the light of the moon. Renz fell in love with a girl names Laura, centuries ago, and he is determined to be reunited with her after her tragic death.
Destiny scaredly searches for "The Restorer" to help cure her before she becomes a full vampire. She'll never guess who it is.
I loved this book because I've always had a thing for vam

I read this series when it first came out, but I didn't really remember anything about it. Reading it now, I was surprised to realize how lame it was. The writing was awful, the story was all over the place, and Renz was just laughable.

That being said, though, it did have that classic R.L. Stine ending, which redeemed it somewhat.
Sep 02, 2015 Joann rated it really liked it
I really enjoyed Destiny's personality but I really really hated Livvy's personality at the same time because she thought that she is the one that boys should adore and I really hated her . I think I learned that you can never ever truly trust anyone even your own sister

R.L stine series are one of my favorite series next to the Twilight saga. This book was very intresting ot read. It had a lot to offer at first. I didn't really understand waht was going on.

I used to read alot of R.L. Stine's books in 5th grade. I used to be very into the horror section of the library and bookstore. I recently saw this sitting on my bookshelf and decided that i should clean the dust off and maybe try reading it seeing as i needed an advisory book anyway. Dangerous Girls was not as scary as i remember R.L. Stein's books to be but it was an easy and fun read. The book is about two sisters that go away to camp and when they return home they realize that they have all ...more

A creepy and well-developed story. R.L. Stine is famous for his ghost stories and this is another one of his greatest works. After the twin sisters return from summer camp, they have a desire for blood. Have they been possessed by ghosts and turned into vampires? R.L. Stine does not clearly tell us the answer and thus, he creates great suspense throughout the story. The girls' lives are changed forever; one of the twin is saved by their father but it is too late for the other. R.L. Stine's stori ...more
