Point Horror Club - Book reviews & thoughts

I have always loved Point Horror. I used to read them in one sitting as a teenager and recently have re-read several.

After seeing some other people on Twitter also still love Point Horror I decided to read & review some for my blog. Please feel free to join in and give your thoughts on favourites from your teens and books from the series you still love today.

459353The Funhouse is one of my favourites.

When the Devil's Elbow roller coaster goes off track, killing one teenager and maiming two others, everyone thinks it's just an accident . . . except Tess. She saw someone tampering with the track. Then another "accident" occurs in the Funhouse and Tess may have been the intended victim.
I loved the extracts from the killer who found an old journal and wants the boardwalk to suffer.  I didn't guess the killer till right at the end which is good.  I found it a little annoying how all Tess's friends were like its all fine, there's nothing to worry about when clearly something is wrong and why didn't Tess go back to her dad's sooner? Strong, stubborn or stupid? The other thing that struck me was the odd names Doss, Beak and Guy-Joe!!! What?!? It reminded me a little of the film Final Destination and although seemed dated largely due to the clothing/hair descriptions was still a good read.

What did you think?  Was it a Point Horror you remember?

April Fools (Point Horror, #7)April Fools - Coming home from a forbidden April Fools party, Belinda and her friends witness a horrible accident. When no one appears to have survived, the three friends vow not to admit they were there. Then the sick pranks begin, and Belinda must discover the truth to save their lives!

I did enjoy this book but found Hildy and Frank horrible from the beginning and couldn't really understand why Belinda was friends with them and went along with covering up the accident.  I also thought Belinda going back to the house repeatedly annoying as she was clearly terrified of Adam.
I loved Cobbs although it makes me laugh how Americans view English people!  What was with the cream in tea. Does anyone actually do that?
I wish we'd seen a little more of Mrs Thorne I think she was a great character and reminded me of Angelica Houston.
I didn't guess Noels involvement did you?
