I just wanted to write a post about my new collection. I have decided to start collecting the full set of Point Horror novels.
So what are Point Horrors?
Point Horrors are a collection of Books released throughout the 90’s. They are Horror/ supernatural stories aimed at Teenagers/Young Adults.
When I was in high school these books had a real cult following and it was so hard to check them out of the school library because so many people wanted to read them.
As soon as I got my pocket money I would go to WH Smith and spend it all on these books. They used to cost around £3.99 each. I spent most of my summer holidays reading these books and I loved them.
They were written by a core group of authors including R.L Stine (author of Goosebumps), Diane Hoh, Caroline B. Cooney and Richie Tankersley Cusick. I loved them so much I even joined a Point Horror book club!
I decided to collect them all due partly to nostalgia but also because I loved the stories. They were always well written and always drew me in.
There are well over 120 point horror books and I currently have around 40 in my collection. You guys will probably see them popping up a lot in my monthly Book Reviews as I make my way through them. They are relatively short books with most of them coming to around 200 pages but they are fantastic and well worth the read!
