*3.5 stars*

This is a fun start to a scary late elementary aged series. I never read the Goosebumps series when I was a kid, but I imagine this is similar, only geared more towards girls. There's a lot of talk about crushes and hotties, so I don't think it will appeal to my eight old son at all ... but my daughter might like it in a few years. I also liked the scary, but not too scary vibe. Perfect for its intended demographic.

I am not the target age for this book. It's aim at young girls between 9-12 but I have to say I really did enjoy it and looking forward to reading more of the Creepover books.

Truth or Dare is about Abby, a young girl who at a sleepover plays truth or dare with friends and she picks truth and ends up revealing to her friends who she has a crush on. However, in the middle of the night she receives a creepy text message telling her to stay away from her crush, Jake. Soon Abby feels like lots of cre

I thought this was really well done. It’s reminiscent of Goosebumps and other Point horror novels from the 90’s. I grew up on those books and still love them to this day. The main difference being the contemporary setting and technological advancements as well as being targeted toward young girls. The writing was solid and the plot was effective. I also enjoyed the ambiguous ending. I’ll definitely check out some of these in the series. This was a very pleasant surprise.

If I was younger, I would have absolutely loved this book. Even though I'm not in the target age range for this books (probably 8-12 year old), this was a guilty pleasure for me! This was a simple story with a hint of creepiness that would be fantastic for children, young teens or any reluctant readers.

When I was younger, I really enjoyed reading books such as The Sleepover Club and Goosebumps, and if the Creepover series was available then, it would've been a sure hit with me! Truth or Dare cer

You're invited to a creepover and what a chillfest it was. I loved this book, I'm not the intended audience but that didn't matter at all. What an all round fun, girly read. If you are a fan of the old Goosebumps series, like me, then you will probably enjoy this.

Abby Miller and her friends have a sleepover at Abby's house. In a game of truth or dare Abby admits to having a crush on a guy called Jake. From then on in very creepy things start to happen to Abby. One text message to Abby's phone wa

**Disclosure** I read this book, for free, from S&S Galley Grab. While I always appreciate a free book for review, my opinions are in no way influenced by the free-ness lol**

Truth or Dare by PJ Night.

I admit, first off, that I opted to read this selection from Galley Grab because I liked the cover once I looked it up here on Goodreads. It's cute, youthful, fun, and hints at spookiness, like an updated Fear Street or Goosebumps from back in the day. (Speaking of which, I really loved that one

This was a great book. It was about this girl named Abby Miller. She had a sleepover at her house with her friends. In the part when they where playing truth or dare, Abby confess her crush was Jake Chilson. After that creepy thing stared to happen to Abby like her phone was by her when she went to sleep but when she woke up in middle of the night she got creepy text message and the creepy part is when her phone was by the stairs. It gets a little bit creepy when you start to read the book.

This was an awesome book!You should read it when you want a good little scare.I like how on the back of the book it has a "scare-o meter" and on the meter it has things like sleep like a baby, hide under the covers, sleep with the lights on, sleep with one eye open, and never sleep again.This one was rated sleep with the lights on.I just loved this book and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good little scare.Again I say that this book is awesome and Iwould like to read the rest of the s ...more

This book was so darn good. I have been reading more and more mid-grade (I share books with my nieces and I won't let them read it unless I have first, they're 10-13) and this one was just scary enough to make it fun.

From what I understand this series is similar to the Goosebumps novels of my childhood in that the characters will change with each novel. Which on one hand is good because there's basically 20+ books in this series and if that much creepy stuff happened to a group on young g

Wow that was lame. I'm way too old for this book but I don't think I would enjoy it even if I was in middle school. Why the helllll is a little girl doing a seance to try and talk to a dead girl? Also Leah seems to really suck as a friend and a person, Abby should probably not be friends with her, Leah is clearly a toxic friend. And that was probably the scariest part of this book, which is super disappointing. Abby is way too forgiving of everyone that did her wrong, like come on girl, you can' ...more

I read this book when I was about 10 but totally would read it again! I wanted to read the full Creepover series but got to finish maybe around 5 books in total. To me, the best part about these books were the twists that you knew were coming but never had any idea of what it would be. I feel like my most favourite one was the first book of P.J. Night's Creepover series because I could really feel, what they were feeling. I was addicted to each page and really didn't want to put the book down.

Not much as anything to do with Truth or Dare, since it started with Truth or Dare and then it dived into drama.

That is my only complaint, but it was an interesting start to a series. I was expecting more Truth or Dare stuff to be honest.

I think this book is really good for if you are just wanting a light read. The book isn’t really anything serious and I feel that it is more for a younger audience. I did enjoy it though.

Okay, I can see how I thought this was scary in fifth grade, and for that reason, I'll give it a two because I really enjoyed it back then.

Mar 05, 2018 rated it it was amazing
A super cute read, and actually a little spooky for the age it's targeted for. I really enjoyed the moral, so overall a great book for girls. This is a series of 20+ and the scariness is supposed to "increase" as the series goes along, so I might give book two a chance!

2.5 stars. Review originally posted over at Mostly Reading YA

Creepover: Truth or Dare, while not something that can really hold my interest now, is a book I know I would have enjoyed in my pre-teen years.

Fans of R.L Stine will most likely enjoy this one – I devoured the Goosebumps series when I was a kid, several of which I found incredibly creepy (I seem to recall a dolls house one that I loved and hated in equal measures). I’d say Truth or Dare is a little tamer, it doesn’t quite manage to hit
Wanneer Aagje haar drie vriendinnen uitnodigt voor een gezellig slaapfeestje, heeft ze nog geen idee wat haar die avond en de weken erna allemaal te wachten staat. Tijdens een spelletje Doen, Durven of de Waarheid biecht ze namelijk op aan haar vriendinnen dat ze stiekem verliefd is op Daan, erop vertrouwend dat zij de enigen zijn die dit ooit zullen weten. Maar diezelfde avond nog blijkt dat ze het mis had: midden in de nacht krijgt ze een griezelig sms’je van een onbekend nummer. Aagje heeft g ...more

When I read that this new series was the 'Goosebumps for the modern generation,' I knew it had big shoes to fill, I was a fan of Goosebumps in my early teens and still have a stack of them on my shelf so, of course, I was eager to give this a try, even if it is aimed at 9-11 year olds!

Thankfully the book lived up to the claim and I found I really enjoyed it, and I didn't even guess the end! I think it's fantastically written for the audience it's aimed at and made a great guilty pleasure for mys

This was a really really fun book. I saw it in the library and just had to take it with me. I am glad I did, now I found a new horror series that I am going to follow and buy (this time in the original language).

The story was really great, scary, creepy and at times gave me goosebumps. Especially during certain

The book starts out with a mysterious girl spying on Abby and Leah buying snacks for their sleepover. It quickly moves very light-hearted when Leah spots the boy she has a crush on and gets tongue-tied. The story then moves to the sleepover, where Abby reveals who her crush is. Everything is going awesome until Abby gets a mysterious text that reads, "Leave him alone. He's mine!!! Don't make me tell you twice!" Lots of strange things start to happen to Abby. She seriously starts to see the ghost ...more

I love little mysteries, especially those that are part of a series and Creepover: Truth or Dare caught my eye. When I picked it up and read the review I instantly thought of R.L. Stine. R.L. Stein has always been my favorite author and I’ve read every one of his books in the Fear Street, Cheerleaders, Fear Street Super chiller, Ghosts of Fear Street, and Goosebumps series. (I’ll confess I still own my Goosebumps collection and still read them from time to time.)

This is the first in a new series of spooky stories aimed at the 9-12 year old market for girls. And it's an enjoyable start.

The story is the perfect blend of romance, mystery and creep factor! Definitely aimed at a younger audience it's a really fun read - it reminded me of the point horror books I read when I was younger.

The story was quick to read so I think it would be very good for any reluctant readers too. It's engaging - I really wanted to find out what was going on! Who was behind all t
I read this with my daughter over the past week. She still loves either me reading to her or her reading to me, even though she is 8! LOL! I know this will end soon. But I have to say, for a young adult/children's chapter book, this was a pretty good book. Kind of scary and creepy but not so much that it scared her. She takes after me though and loves reading "scary" mystery books. Yes this book could have been much longer but it is a YA book and a lot of things are left out or underdeveloped, b ...more
