The horror starts with a mysterious accident near the Fear Street cemetery. Soon after, piercing screams echo through the empty school halls. An...more
Newcomers Corky and Bobbi arrive at Shadyside High and are instantly fast tracked into the cheerleading squad, much to the annoyance of Kimmy.
I really liked the tension amongst the group and how a rift is formed, the competitive nature really comes to the fore.
This peaks after Jennifer is injured and Bobbi is named the new captain. You can really feel the jealousy through the story.
Corky and Bobbi are the two sisters that are the main characters of this book, 16 and 17 years old. They move in their new house on Fear Street and decide to join the Che ...more

This is one of Stine's better works, though he's lost a star for the lack of diversity and the constant reiteration of how pretty the two main characters were with their blond hair! Brunettes are good looking too R.L. So are many other non-anglos. But getting past that, I liked the premise, I really liked the final scene where they fin ...more
I love it when Stine kills characters. The deaths are usually over the top, pretty damn creative, and no one is safe. In THE FIRST EVIL one of the main characters, which you probably won’t see coming, gets boiled to death in the gym shower. I love i ...more
I thought reading this would be a breeze but I was so uninterested it turned out to be a bit of a chore. A chore I gladly did only because I read it as part of a book club so I knew I wasn't alone in my suffering. My main problem was that it was badly written. It jumped from one scene to another, without notice, pause, or any explanation making it feel ...more
Me and my best friend wanted so badly to be cheerleaders and were excited to get our hands on fear street books. Keep in mind that not all fear street books are scary. But this was the first book I read so I was under the impression that they all were to scary for my delicate mind lol. Which put me off of reading fear streets for awhile. But I love these books. Okay so enough talking on to the review.
This book is about Corky and ...more

I was dying to read one of R.L Stines Fear Street books ever since I did my Daring You To Read post. I just love his stories of horror.
Fear Street Cheerleaders were, I Believe, the first books of his Fear Street collection I read which was back in 08'. So I thought this to be the perfect one to reread and dive back into the world I fell in love with. This started my little but growing collection of his teen horror. ...more
The first time I read this series, I was eleven and whoa, did I love it. Fifteen years later, it's showing its age. I didn't expect I would be wowed again, fifteen years later, but I didn't expect I would cringe with regret, either.
Don't take that the wrong way. The book isn't bad. But with ...more
I was way into Fear Street in 6th grade. Now that there are some newer Fear Street stories coming out and I've been getting more requests for them, I decided to take a trip down memory lane. This tale did not hold up well, but it did make me apprecia ...more
I think what I loved most was the way Stine killed off characters sort of all over the place. He wasn't afraid to do in major leads, and that was s ...more
