Another Stinetiglers book full of fun 10 short stories by the famous R.L. Stine.
So there are lucky charms, gnomes, a stopwatch, birthday wishes and soooo much more.
These stories were not as spooky as the first book but they were still so much fun to read.
I have loved R.L. Stine's books as a kid and still as an adult. These are made for middle schoolers but I love the Nostalgia feeling that I get from them and since I have been into his books I always have to read his new ones just because that's what I enjoy.
My favorite short story I think had to be Lucky Me
If you want some quick easy reads then this is a book to check out.
I am so glad that I was able to read this book (ARC) early, thanks to the publisher and NetGalley. Above is my review which is honest and voluntary.
R.L. Stine is one of the top-most people responsible for my love of horror, both reading and writing it (along with Alvin Schwartz, of course). While I mostly read more adult horror these days, there's something so warm and nostalgic about cracking open a scary children's book by R.L. Stine.
Stinetinglers 2 features ten new short stories. It's a bit funny at times when I'm reminded these are new, modern Stine stories by random mentions of YouTube and Netflix, but then a few sentences later he'll write "capture on video" or "I started the Minecraft game" which sounds odd for a kid in 2023 to say. I found it charming, though - Stine is 79 years old, after all, and I'm dreading the day we'll no longer get new Stine stories so I don't want to be too hard on him. He at least does better than King when writing kids lol
Also, before each story is a little note from the author, which is usually an anecdote from his childhood that he supplies as the inspiration for the story you're about to read. This is a very Stine thing to do and I loved it, but then I'm a writer and I find it fascinating to hear from other writers about what inspired them or a particular story of theirs.
Some of my favorites of the bunch include:
Lost and Found - super fun and genuinely creepy! Two girls get lost at the zoo and encounter some creatures they wish they hadn't, which I'm deliberately not spoiling as it took even me by surprise lol I think kids will really love this one.
Mind Blowers - a creepy Freaky Friday-esque story with some cool sci-fi (reminiscent of the horror movie Possessor). A little disappointed the doc wasn't a villain, but still very enjoyable. I think the idea behind this one would make for a good full-length Goosebumps, especially with that classic ending!
The Stopwatch - Stine got a little too real here, with the voice of the protagonist coming through very strong and authentic. It almost felt more like I was reading Stephen King here, which was an odd feeling, but wow was this one good. A seriously scary standout.
A Bad Birthday Party - this was just sad until it got weird. The twist isn't out of left field but it was still so weird and so goofy. Loved the ending lol
I'm unsure if it's intentional (assuming it is) but there are some recurring settings and themes: luck, time, zoos, and, strangely, salami pizza. Overall this was a great bunch of horror shorts for kids that I'm sure they'll all love - and you will too, if you grew up a Stine fan like me!
These stories brought back so many memories for me. I devoured every Goosebumps book I could get my hands on as a kid. So when I saw R.L. Stine was coming out with ten new stories I jumped at the opportunity to read them.
They didn’t disappoint. They are full of great scares, humor, and fun. I think young readers will enjoy these short stories and find them very relatable! From the boy who can stop time to get revenge on his bullies to the boy who switches bodies with another for 24 hours. Each story has a great lesson to learn!
I look forward to the day I can share my love of R.L. Stine with my son.
I read these as a palate cleanser amidst the heavy horror and litfic I usually read, as well as a boost of nostalgia, and these definitely delivered!
This book has everything: kleptomaniacs, gnomes, magic mirrors, mysterious stopwatches, fun house mirrors
I was instantly transported to my childhood of reading every single RL Stine book I could get my hands on. I also like how Stine explained his inspiration before each story and how a lot of them related to being a kid and feeling like the odd one out.
I do wish there was more unsettling (kid appropriate) horror that I’m used to from other RL Stine books. A lot of the horror in these was a bit more comical and I think this is a great way to introduce smaller children to horror that won’t keep them up at night.
I also think representation from an early age is important and wish there were more girl main characters (i think I counted like 2-3, while the rest were boys).
Thank you NetGalley & Macmillan Audio for this ALC! A special thanks to RL Stine! All opinions are my own.
This is a review of the audiobook.
This review is for an ARC copy received from the publisher through NetGalley.
Stinetinglers 2 - Another 10 new short tales from R. L. Stine. Once again Stine brings us modernized Goosebumps-ish stories in short form. And again, the writing is a little more dynamic than the more formulaic series of the past, and with the short story format, they stay on point. Some are better than others, but for the most part they contain tongue-in-cheek humor and surprise twists. Fans of Stine, or even those new to his writing, should enjoy this book.
Another fun-tastic set of 10 short spine-tingling stories. Read them before bed, if you dare! "The Stopwatch" is one of my favorites from this collection. When the kid in that story gets a stopwatch that freezes time around him, what will he do next? WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley, but was not required to leave a positive review.
As a kid I would collect and read R.L. Stine Goosebumps books and since then my kids have read and collected them also. And now this book which as soon as I seen it on available I requested it for me and my kids to read of course. There is ten different stories all unique with scary humorous, stories so if you are a RL. Stein or goosebumps fan I recommend picking this one up. This would be a great book to read with your kids or to give away as a gift
This book was a page turner from beginning to end. Love this group of short stories. Brought me back to childhood. Especially loved the mirror one. Love how all stories make you reflect you think your life can be better another way but that is usually not the case. Think black mirror but for younger kids. Highly recommend. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
I enjoyed these 10 stories within this book. All of the characters were fun to read about. If you like horror and somethings scary these 10 stories will be right up there. And with each story comes an personal introduction from the author. Tell you how the story can to his mind to white about. Some of the stories are more scary than others. There was one with spider in it that gave me the shivers a bit. Because I'm not so found of spiders.
This was a fun to read or listen to. All of the stories had action, adventure and suspense throughout. There were a few giggles within each stories.
I received a complimentary copy and audio copy via Netgalley. This is my honest unbiased opinions.
Stinetinglers 2 are ten short stories designed to poke you in your Fear bone. R.L. Stine delivers the scares and I was happy to receive them.
I have not read a R.L. Stine book in about 20+ years, and when I saw this, I jumped at the chance to get to read it. These stories take you back to your childhood with nostalgia with his writing. You’ll giggle like a child, you’ll learn lessons with each story - some obvious and others you have to think about more. Kids will absolutely love this. As an adult reading this, I can appreciate being transformed back to simpler times.
Because of the age range recommended for this book, I can absolutely see this as a beginner book for a child wanting to read a bit of a spookier set of stories. And it’s short enough with small chapters to keep children engaged and focused on the story and lesson.
If you know any children ready to delve into spooky season with some R.L. Stine books - this is a fantastic place to start.
This was another great book by R L Stine. The stories are very similar to the Goosebumps series but much shorter and more modern. It was a good book that I just blew through. I enjoyed the little introductions at the start of each story as well.
I've been a big fan of Stine since I was a kid so I was really excited to get my hands on his new anthology of short stories. Stinetinglers 2 has ten stories that start with a forward by Stine about what inspired the idea behind each one.
The stories are geared towards young readers in the 6-12yo age group with every story from the POV of a child, but it can easily be enjoyed by every age (especially us elder millennials that were raised on Goosebumps). Every story was entertaining and only a couple felt predictable with their plots.
I loved this anthology. Thank you NetGalley & the publisher Macmillan for the ARC. I'm leaving an honest review voluntarily.
The 10 short tales are vintage Stine, dishing out twists that are creepy or comical in turn—such as “Lucky Me,” which serves up a reminder that there are two kinds of luck, and “The Stopwatch,” about a timepiece that allows a bullied lad to exact revenge by freezing his tormenters (until, that is, the watch stem breaks). There are even more unexpected creepy stories.
Stine’s humor and nightmarish fun, Stinetinglers 2 is perfect for fans of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and Stine’s own Goosebumps books who want even more scares. These chilling tales prove that Stine’s legacy in the horror genre is justly earned. I love Stine’s books. His humor is “one of a kind” and his stories are creepy. To me he is the “Stephen King” of stories for juveniles. I’m an adult and enjoy his stories. I believe all ages would enjoy these stories. Don’t let your age keep you from reading them.
Disclaimer: I received an arc of this book from the author/publication from Netgalley. I wasn’t obligated to write a favorable review at all. The opinions expressed are strictly my own,
Stinetinglers 2 by R. L. Stine was received directly from the publisher and I chose to review it. Like most people above the age of 40, this author has been around my entire adult life, with my children reading his stories and TV shows, etc. When I saw he was "coming back," I asked for and received the opportunity to read and review these short stories. I tend to enjoy short stories as authors' abilities to keep me interested have waned significantly over the years. These stories held my attention but some annoyed me in that they ended too abruptly. That being said, if you or persons you buy gifts for like young adult horror stories and want to introduce others to these type stories, give this book a read.
