Goosebumps Horrorland: Escape from Horrorland by R. L. Stine

R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps Horrorland, and Most Wanted series are incredible! My favorite books by R.L. Stine are The Scream of the Haunted Mask, Escape from Horrorland, The Revenge of the Living Dummy, and Say Cheese – and Die Screaming! If there are any other children that are fans of R.L. Stine’s Goosebump series, then they have chosen the perfect books to read! The Goosebumps are the perfect books to read on a dark Halloween night. As you’re reading these books you will immediately get involved with the story, and you will feel like you are one of the characters! In conclusion, when you are finished with the book, Escape from Horrorland, I will guarantee you that your heart will be pounding for at least 5 – 10 minutes! Enjoy!

The Wright 3

The Wright 3Blue Balliett; Scholastic Press 2006WorldCatRead OnlineLibraryThingGoogle BooksBookFinder

The book The Wright 3 was one of my favorite books this year. It has surprises and mysteries. (Like most of the Blue Balliet’s books). And the characters are funny and keep secrets from each other. Calder, Tommy, and Petra help solve one of the greatest mysteries in the realistic fiction world.
