Welcome one and all to another instalment of my 30-day blogging challenge. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
Today is day 12, and I am writing about my favourite childhood book. I love to read and found nothing better than getting lost in a book when I was younger. As I’ve gotten older, I have dropped off a bit, but I will pick it up again in the holidays.
My favourite book as a child was the first ever Goosebumps book, A Night in Terror Tower. I enjoyed reading the Goosebumps series. At first, I wasn’t sure about reading the series because I didn’t enjoy horror as a kid (now I will read a book or watch the odd horror movie). Terror Tower was so good that I went and read other books in the series.
RL Stine wrote the series, and there are 62 books. Terror Tower is the 27th book in the series. The plot sees a brother and sister, Sue and Eddie, who are holidaying in London, and they visit Terror Tower, get separated from their tour group, and get chased by a mysterious man in black.
Sue and Eddie go to their hotel room; they can’t find their parents and have trouble remembering their last names. The man in black catches up to them and sends them back to medieval times. I won’t spoil it for you, but the story is loosely based on the Princes in the Tower.
Stine’s books were also turned into a tv series, running for four seasons from 1995 to 1998. Actors such as Ryan Gosling and Scott Speedman. A Night in Terror Tower was a two-part episode that aired in 1996. If you would like to watch it, it’s below.
Thank you again for joining me on this blogging journey. Join me again tomorrow when I tell you what’s in my fridge.
