My chosen book for this week is Family Curse (Fear Street) by R.L Stine
Why do so many horrifying things happen on Fear Street? Nora thinks she knows. Ezra is determined to find out. Simon thought changing his name would stop the evil. This volume contains three complete stories from the “Fear Street” series.
During my teenage years I read so many Fear Streets, Point Horrors, Spooksville and Goosebumps books, but Family Curse has always stood out for me and is the only one that I kept. This three novel collection tells the story of the Fier family over several centuries and each generation’s struggle to break the curse that their ancestors brought down upon them. My favourite of the three has to be the first novel ‘The Betrayal’ as it is set in the 1600s which is one of my favourite periods in history, but all three novels are very well-written. I remember when I first bought it I spent all day reading it as I just couldn’t put it down!
One thought on “Shabby Sunday: Family Curse (Fear Street) by R.L. Stine”
During my teenage years, I spent my time reading anything but horror. I bought a book with a very beautiful cover and later found out that it was not only romance, but it also involves paranormal stuff (the scary ones) I wanted to stop but couldn’t. It ends happily but the story haunted my dreams for a while.
