YA of the 80's and 90's Reading Challenge

I have joined another reading challenge. But  like the vampire one, this was one I could NOT pass up. When I was 11 years old  I read my first big book from beginning to end. It was a Stephen King book. [that was also when I realized I wanted to be a writer].

Now, even though I did read the book I didn’t understand most of the words he said. So.. I went to what at the time I thought was the next best thing. R.L. Stine. To me he was the younger readers, Stephen King. So, once a week my mother took me to buy a new book. Then it was twice a week. Then it was 4-5 books in one shot. I still have every R.L. Stine book I owned from 11 up. They are all in perfect condition [minus the one I let my 10 year old read].

Plus I have some others from Christopher Pike, Nicholas Pine, Diane Hoh [Nightmare Hall was like my fave lol], Caroline B. Cooney did some cool vampire ones and this one book from Richie Tankersley Cusick that I liked called Trick or Treat. Love my scary stuffs!

So onto the challenge!
