Goosebumps_tvYou know you’re obsessed with Goosebumps when. . . 

You don’t even have to open a Goosebumps book to know that it’s going to be scary. The cover of You Can’t Scare Me creeps me out so much I don’t want to read it! You can expect a twist and turn on every page of a Goosebumps book, but if you are a real Goosebumps fan, there are certain tell-tale signs that you share with other people who live and breathe the horror-filled world of Goosebumps.

You know you’re a truly obsessed fan of Goosebumps when . . .

  • you won’t buy a Halloween mask because you are afraid it won’t come off once you put it on.
  • if anything strange happens during play rehearsal, you automatically blame it on the new boy in town.
  • vacation to Egypt is totally out of the question; no way you’re going ANYWHERE near mummies!
  • on the full moon, you look for signs that your new friend might be a werewolf.
  • you won’t go near dummies or dolls because you’re afraid they’ll come to life!!!
  • it seems quite possible that your boarding school is hiding aliens.
  • you are SURE the plants in the backyard are talking to you.
  • you know better than to mess with a cuckoo clock.
  • the words “Yohhhhhhh Spirits!” send shivers up your spine.

So, are you obsessed with Goosebumps? Tell us how you recognize another Goosebumps fan in the Comments below!!!

    When I was like 10 I read Goosebumps and I don’t mean to be rude but I’m 12 now and they’re kinda boring… Just speaking the truth… Steven King is the best I think and when kids get old enough to read his books they’ll see my point…

    I’m not a Goosebumps fan because i’m a huge scaredy-cat and would get to afraid to read them, but they sound good. Seriously, I’m afraid of spiders, whales, and hardware stores.
