In the spirit of Halloween (only four days to go!), I asked the lovely Wendy of A Cupcake and a Latte to talk about hre favourite childhood ghost stories. She and I both grew up in the 1990s and her choice will definitely send all our fellow 90s kids into happy clouds of nostalgia. Take it away, Wendy!
R.L Stine Haunts My Nightmares
Angel from Mermaid Visions happily approached me about writing a guest post about my favorite child hood ghost stories. Now, thinking about ghost stories from my child hood has always led me to one significant thought- R.L Stine. In fact, I even had the opportunity to meet him once!
My love for R.L Stine’s young horror novels started off with the TV show, unfortunately. I was immediately enamored by it’s creepy goodness, the ability it had to pull me in as a helpless victim and then scare me senseless. It was then that I knew I had to try out his extensive series of creepy novels.
Nightmares – I must have had hundreds of them! There were ones about Slappy, the haunted ventriloquist dummy, and the man eating sponge *shivers*. Either way, no matter the subject of horror that he used in each novel, I couldn’t shake off the sense of adrenaline I got. That is, perhaps, one of my absolute favorite things from reading his novels. I’m happy to have had R.L Stine’s novels as a part of my child hood, especially in playing such a big part in the aspect of ghost stories.
