#94: Goosebumps (series) by R. L. Stine

Series Info:

62 Books in the original Goosebumps series
Number of pages for each book varies
Reading Level: Children, Young Adults

Synopsis:  This series was specifically written to scare you and give you goosebumps (pun intended) ... =)

Reason for being Banned/Challenged:  Surprisingly, this was on the American Library Association's list for being the most challenged between 2000 and 2009.  The complaints against the series indicated that there was 'excessive violence in books intended for children under the age of twelve.'

I am really excited to get all 62 of these books and can not WAIT to start reading them.  I will definitely keep ya'll updated.

Happy Reading! =)


  1. I loved this series when I was young. My little sister & I would fight over who would read them all first! lol

  2. I've read R. L. Stine books before, but never Goosebumps. I'm looking forward to reading them =)
