Hey guys! I'm GoosebumpsArt (but you can call me "GbA" if you want to). I've been a huge fan of Goosebumps since I was just a kid, and I have been surfing this wiki for a long time. In early 2016, I decided to start contributing here because I wanted to help this site stay relevant and up-to-date. In the few years I've been here, I've seen many lovely changes.

Now, I'm far from perfect. Sometimes, I can be a stickler for the rules, and I'm not above the occasional typo. However, I try to always be constructive and fair. Thanks for stopping by, and happy editing!

 The 8 Worst Books

Goosebumps definitely had some questionable moments...

The following books are the ones that I personally thought were the worst, so I'm sorry if you don't completely agree with my choices. (List arrangement; #1 is the worst.)

8. The Barking Ghost
7. Be Afraid — Be Very Afraid!
  • This book was odd for a number of reasons. The most obvious reason is that it has several jarring transitions scattered throughout. I heard some fans theorize that the first part of this book wasn't written by Stine; then, Stine saw how bad the first half was, and he fixed it by having the story abruptly change perspective. I can appreciate how experimental this book tried to be, but the twists derailed the story.
6. Egg Monsters from Mars
  • This book is similar to (but lacks the intrigue of) Stay Out of the Basement. The story here is kinda' slow, and the ending is... Disturbing in more ways than one.
5. Monster Blood IV
  • Monster Blood IV is so similar to Monster Blood III that, I legitimately got déjà vu several times while reading. Also, this book has Kermit, one of the most irredeemable jerks ever penned.
4. Dr. Maniac vs. Robby Schwartz
  • This book annoyed the daylights out of me. Maybe it's because I listened to the audiobook, but Dr. Maniac is possibly my least favorite character ever. Also — as if the book wasn't painful enough already — the twist ending is basically one big slap in the face. It essentially tells the reader they've wasted their time.
3. Chicken Chicken
  • The plot of this book centers around two kids turning into chickens. True terror. Chicken Chicken is a ridiculous concept. At one point in the book, the protagonist starts to grow a beak, and her mother mistakes the beak for chapped lips.
2. Bad Hare Day
  • The plot of this book centers around a kid turning into a bunny. True terror. I didn't enjoy this book even a little bit. I hate the main character, I hate his sister, and I would probably hate his mother if I knew her.
1. Legend of the Lost Legend
  • Completely outlandish. The story-line makes very little sense, probably due to all of the unnatural plot twists that are thrown at the reader seemingly at every turn. I wouldn't mind losing this legend...
