The master of horror takes on the master of theater!

Get ready for laughter to turn into screams in R.L. Stine's re-imagining of Shakespeare's classic romantic comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Everyone knows that Mayhem Manor is cursed. After production on the horror film was stopped due to a series of mysterious deaths, it became a Hollywood legend--which makes it perfect for Claire and her family. If they can successfully finish the film, it should be enough to save their ailing movie studio.

Sure, the old haunted house is creepy, and strange stuff has been happening, but this is Claire's chance. Her chance to become the movie star she's always dreamed and her chance to finally convince her friend Jake that she is girlfriend material. Of course, the fact that Jake thinks he's in love with her best friend, Delia, who is crushing hard on Jake's friend Shawn, who insists on following Claire around, could be a problem, but Claire is sure she can figure it out. After all, the course of true love never did run smooth.

But once shooting starts, "creepy and strange" morph into "bloody and deadly," as the lines between film and reality begin to blur...
My Teaser
"One hand on the wheel, one hand around Darlene's shoulders, Tony pounded the gas pedal, and the van roared over the bumps and pits of the narrow dirt road. Leaning against the window on Darlene's right, Sue gritted her teeth and absorbed every jolt and jerk in silence. Tony was driving too fast, trying to impress Darlene, and Sue had to fight down her fear." - ARC page 3
Is anyone else super excited for R.L. Stine's new book?!?! Me too :)

  6. Haven't seen this one. I usually stay away from thrillers/horrors, but the plot sounds interesting. Here was my teaser from today for Falling Kingdoms and Shades of Earth:

  7. Okay, confession time: I just recently read my very first R.L. Stine book! I was sick and wanted something super quick and easy and picked up one of my boyfriend's old Goosebumps books. Not bad! I can definitely see why so many people loved them.

    I haven't heard of this one, but that would be SO interesting to see his take on the play!

  8. ever since I read his recent Adult "horror" Red Rain - I just can't picture myself ever reading another R.L. Stine book because it was so terribly wrtten.

  10. I actually don't know who R.L. Stine is but this book cover is a bit creepy. The synopsis however is still awesome

  13. I have no idea why this wasn't on my TBR list before. I am SO looking forward to this! A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of my favorites! So excited to see Stine's take!
