General: Jude’s Graveyard School Reunion (Jude Deluca on 26 May 2017)
It’s easy to assume that due to the popularity of the Goosebumps franchise in the 1990s, it instigated a flood of similarly themed YA books about kids facing supernatural and not-so-supernatural horrors in their daily lives. Hell, even the Babysitter Club books did a horror-themed spin-off. Here are as many titles as I can think […]

General: Wing Recommends the Teen Creeps podcast (Wing on 6 Feb 2017)
Recently one of our readers suggest we listen to the Teen Creeps podcast, where comedians Kelly Nugent and Lindsay Katai recap YA genre fiction (starting out, mostly Christopher Pike, and you all know how much I love Christopher Pike). I think they are hilarious and their discussions smart, funny, and sometimes heartbreaking; they talk about […]

Point Horror Twitter PlateGeneral: New Schedule for 2017, Podcasting, and Call for Guests (Wing on 26 Dec 2016)
Starting in January, Dove and I will be recapping here twice a month. Every other Monday, recaps will go up as normal. We’re slowing down a little for three reasons. One is that we’re reaching the end of our book collection, and need some time to track down more books to recap. Two is that we […]

Point Horror Twitter PlateGeneral: Recap Delay (Wing on 19 Dec 2016)
There will be a brief delay on the recap of The Boyfriend by R.L. Stine. It will be up late on the 19th, UK time, instead of in the morning. Holiday stuff is slowing us both down and making it harder for both of us to get our commenting done on the same file in […]

To kill time before then, here are the top five Halloween-ish songs I listened to while writing the recap: “Thriller” by Michael Jackson “This is Halloween” by Marilyn Manson (cover) […]

Point Horror Twitter PlateGeneral: Oh, R. L. Stine, No (Wing on 7 Jun 2016)
ETA: Thanks to everyone’s feedback, I’ll be skipping straight to CAN YOU KEEP A SECRET instead of trying to work through Fear Street in order. Not sure when it will be recapped exactly, but it is definitely on the list now. Why is my nemesis the one still publishing so many new books? And now […]
