This week's topic:
What book brings back a memory?
To sum up my childhood: Goosebumps. Pure Goosebumps. Ever since I eight years old and I snatched my cousin's copy of The Haunted Mask I was addicted. R.L.Stine was my reading childhood. For a young kid they were actually creepy, full of twists and cliffhanger endings that I would be gasping at. So The Haunted Mask plays a big part in my love for reading horror. It was the first Goosebumps book I read. I was staying at my cousins' house while their parents were off on a trip. My grandma and aunt were looking after them, I was bored but loved roaming about their huge house and caught sight of this book with a gruesome mask on the cover. I nabbed it and started reading. Unfortunately my cousin found me reading it and took it off me. By then I'd read a few chapters and was completely in love with the story so my gran took me to the shops to get my own copy. After a few years I had a pretty large collection of Goosebumps. It was pure entertainment for me and got me writing in the first place.
