Give Yourself Goosebumps #3: Trapped in Bat Wing Hall

Basically in this book, you meet a guy who seems kind of nice and doesn’t mind that you’re a new kid in town. He decides to take you under his wing and make you part of his group. They sit around telling horror stories at a place named Bat Wing Hall and trying to scare each other.

Once you arrive though, they don’t want you there. They want to play some scary games and new members aren’t allowed to play. You beg for a chance and they decide to give you a shot. You end up going into a secluded crypt at the local cemetery and read a warning about bat bones. When you wake up that night, you’re roughly the size of a bat and need to get back to normal.

*I reached the end with one of my first choices. I then did a few other times through the book and never did reach a happy ending. I don’t think there’s even the slightest bit of a happy ending here.

*The biggest annoyance is that there is way too much flipping going on! Every page is a section on its own, so you read one page and have to flip to another, read that and flip again. I went from page 1, to page 129, to page 77, then back to 18 and so on. Very annoying.

*Sadly I have a few more books like this, but I have no clue how to recap them. Any ideas?

  1. No idea how to recap them but I had all thosse choose your own adventure books when I was little and I loved them! I would go through them until I hit every ending.

  2. Ha! I loved the "Choose your Own Adventure" books! I had a ton of them, but I didn't know there were Goosebumps ones.

    I did the same thing that London did. I went back through until I went through every possible story line and ending there was. They were great! I wish I could find some more of those. I only have one left.

  3. I remember this one...and if I remember correctly...isn't one of the kids a girl who has a habit of chewing on her hair? Disgusting.
