[Book Review] Switched by R.L. Stine

Switched by R.L. Stine book review

Switched by R.L. Stine is a very intense story about two teenage girls. I found it a bit overly dramatic, but totally captivating! I just love R.L. Stine's work!

This is a book that would be great for a readathon! I read it in about an hour.

Switched by R.L. Stine

She traded places with a killer…

There’s a little cabin in the Fear Street woods where a girl can really lose her mind. In fact, she can change it into someone else’s. That’s what happened to Nicole and Lucy. Now Lucy is in Nicole’s body, and Nicole is in Lucy’s. What a trip!

But for Nicole, what a trap! Because Lucy is using Nicole’s body to get away with murder!

My thoughts:
Phew, I forgot how dark and twisted these books could be! The description of the murders kind of shocked me, simply because I wasn’t expecting it.

This story was overly dramatic, a bit ridiculous, but totally captivating! And I absolutely did not see the ending coming... phew!

Found it the writing to be a bit repetitive, but luckily that didn't take away from my overall feelings about the book.

If you're looking for a quick and unsettling read, I highly recommend checking this one out!

Thanks for reading!
What is your favorite R.L. Stine book?


  1. This does sound perfect for a readathon. R.L. Stein is coming to a nearby town this weekend for a book festival. I've contemplated going but don't know if it's going to work out. Great picture!

    1. Oh!! That would be awesome! I'd love to hear about it if you end up going! :)

  2. I read a lot of the Goosebumps books when I was a kid - I think if I read them now, I'd wonder how they didn't give me nightmares!

    1. Right?! Yeah! This one definitely caught me off guard. I loved it though :)

  3. *Hides head* I've yet to read an R.L. Stein book, but my kiddo enjoys them.

  4. I haven't read an R.L. Stein book in years! Maybe I should get a few and read them to my kiddos? It's the perfect month for it!

    Do You Dog-ear?

  5. God I love R.L Stine work! I will check this one cause it sound good ^^
    Btw I like how you picture it with a knife hahaha

    have a nice day

  6. This sounds like a lot of fun! Great review.

  7. I used to collect Goosebumps for my son, and read them all myself LOL
