so i have a pile of fear street books at home, they’re begging to be read. in fact, i did read “silent night” (pt. 1) last winter, and it was still good. by still good, i mean not too teenagery where i shouldn’t be reading it.
it turns out, rl stine wrote his first fear street book when he was nearing 50. i guess that’s why it may seem more on the adult side? i know a good few take place during autumn, and i’m DYING for autumn to get here already. i’m waiting for the delivery of my next helene turstene book, and i love reading on my commute, so why not? well…
i take the M train, known for a small population of commuting hipsters/transplants. as much as i unfortunately can relate a lot of things that i love, to hipster-affiliated things, i hate admitting it. or maybe i just hate hipsters, i know i’m authentic, SOOOOOO… lol.
anyways, i was worried about these things being what others would think:
a) are fear street books ironic enough to be classified as a hipster thing?
b) am i too old?
c) will people think that i am not educated enough to enjoy adult books?
even if i covered it/wrapped the book so that you couldn’t see the cover (which makes it worse, i think), you can still see the info at the tops of the pages, lol.
am i being crazy about this?
