Meh. I read it for book club and I'm not sure my rating is fair, dying kids and existentialism just isn't my thing.

MicrobeMom Haha! I loved these books when I was 12. Not sure I would now! 2w

So here‘s the thing, I loved Pike as a kid,I have such great memories of some of his books. This isn‘t one of them. I have vague memories, but this one didn‘t make the impression on me that Whisper of Death, Chain Letter or Remember Me did. With that said it didn‘t blow me away now, which does kind of make sense.

I've been busy, digging up my copies of Christopher Pike books and ordering used copies of what I don't have (although hopefully more of his books will get republished, I know a few have been released as ebooks because of the show). So in 2023 I'm hosting a #Pikeathon Reading Challenge. I'll host discussions as I read (I'm probably not going to read the Spooksville books, but I might), and do random giveaways to participants who tag me ⬇

MidnightBookGirl in reviews. I personally plan on re-reading the books in order of publication year, but there are no rules to that. Comment below with what level you might aim for!

Participation Levels:

Slumber Party
Read 1-3 Pike books

Chain Letter
Read 3-8 Pike Books

The Star Group
Read 8-15 Pike books

Spellbound
Read 15-25 Pike Books

Fall Into Darkness
Read 25-35 Pike books

Finished up my watch of The Midnight Club and really enjoyed it! I read the book when I was a kid so I don‘t really remember much, however I found it not only pretty spooky but surprisingly touching. Mike Flanagan does it again! Also watched 2 more episodes of Ghosts, which I love! +111 points for #teamslaughter #scarathlon2022

Readergrrl I love Ghosts too!!! 1mo
candc320 @Readergrrl isn‘t it the best?! I love the British version most but the American version is funny too. 1mo
Readergrrl Whaaaat?!?! There‘s a British version!?!?! I am totally binging that! 1mo

JamieArc I recently finished Midnight Club and it wasn‘t spooky at all, so I‘m so curious what the Netflix adaptation is like! 1mo
candc320 @Readergrrl yes!!! There are 3 seasons I think? I watched them on HBO a while ago so they might still be on there! 1mo
candc320 @JamieArc the show definitely had some jump scares and spookiness going on….I hope you like it! 1mo
jlhammar @Readergrrl Agree with @candc320 - love the original BBC Ghosts. You are in for a treat! We still watch and enjoy the American version though. (edited) 1mo

First I will say that I really liked this book. I loved the premise, and the stories told by characters kept me turning the pages. And now I rant: I do not understand the marketing of this book. The only thing scary about it is facing one‘s own mortality. It is not horror, or thriller, so if you want to read a spooky book, or revisit Pike‘s 90s thrillers, this one is not it. Lastly, I‘m pretty bothered by the image on the cover (cont. 🔽)

JamieArc One of the characters is in a wheelchair with an amputated leg, so to not portray that on the cover feels pretty gross. 2mo
JamieArc Rant done. Overall, do read this! I‘m much more apt to watch the series now that I know it‘s not horror. #Booked2022 Adapted for the small screen. @Cinfhen @alisiakae @BarbaraBB (edited) 2mo
MoonWitch94 I read this in the 90s, don‘t remember much of it. Have you watched any of the Netflix show? I‘m halfway through & do not remember any of it from the book. I was wondering if it closely followed the book or not? Maybe my young teen mind didn‘t remember it well. 2mo
JamieArc @MoonWitch94 I haven‘t watched the show yet, so I‘m curious how much it follows the book. I‘ve heard the show is spooky, and if so, I imagine it departs from the books quite a bit. 2mo
MoonWitch94 It‘s equal parts devastatingly sad AND spooky. I had to take a break; but it‘s excellent, just very sad ((as death of young people very much is)). 2mo

How is no one talking about this?! I didn't know this was being made until I saw it on Netflix. I loved this book back in the day! I still have my original Christopher Pike books. The episode titles are some other of his titles. The stories the Midnight Club tells may also be based on those stories as well. I need to refresh myself on those blurbs to be sure haha.

Anyway, I will be posting a review on my blog when I'm done with the series.

I finished this series. It was very good. It is a YA horror show (so not extremely gory) however it has some very serious topics as it is about a group of teens in hospice. So know that going in.
7! Episodes yesterday.

I picked up these Christopher Pike novels at a library sale years ago because I remembered loving his books when I was in Jr. High! I‘ve let them languish on my TBR shelves, but now that there‘s an adaptation of The Midnight Club, I might finally read them! But I‘ll probably watch the show first, lol.

Soubhiville I used to devour these as a kid! Enjoy. 2mo
Sungirl79 I loved those books too! 2mo
NataliePatalie I'm watching The Midnight Club on Netflix. Didn't know it was a book!! Guess I'll all that to my TBR. 2mo

Watched the last 7 episodes of this fantastic spooky(and very very sad)Tv series about a group of terminal teens living in a spooky hospice who every midnight, gather in the library to tell scary stories. Until weird stuff starts to happen that forces them to come to terms with dying. I jumped a lot but I also cried. A lot. #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter 36pts

Moony Sounds good! Is it a netflix or Prime tv-series? 2mo
Lizpixie @Moony it‘s. Netflix show. All 10 episodes are up. 2mo

Watched 3episodes of The Midnight Club so far tonight, probably gonna watch more, it‘s kind of addicting. It‘s about a group of terminally ill kids in a spooky hospice who every night at midnight get together and tell scary stories to help deal with what they‘re going through. But there may be something else in the house watching & listening to them. #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter 16pts

It‘s my favorite reading month! With #DeweysReadathon later this month, my TBR is full of seasonal, atmospheric reads. I particularly like to include some middle grade reads that are quick to get through. Hoping to read the tagged book before the Netflix adaptation comes out, and as a #Booked2022 prompt. #Bookspin

Posting my #Scarathlon TBR pile- at least a partial one. Most of these are books I've already got in my audio queue or need to read for book club, with a few purchases I made just for this month. I can't wait for tomorrow! @Clwojick #TeamSlaughter

I hadn't heard of this book but wanted to read it in preparation for the new show. This was thought provoking and touching, though I do confess I found the ending a bit hurried.

I love Christopher Pike, and years ago, my friend Court and I started a book club that I named the Midnight Book Club after Pike's book The Midnight Club. When I moved back to Virginia, I decided to start a book blog, and used Midnight Book Girl (and started a new version of The Midnight Book Club here in VA). So I've been Midnight Book Girl (or MidnghtBookGirl bc Twitter) ever since!

I know I read this in high school but I really don't remember it. I just saw the trailer for the tv show so I guess a reread is in order 🤔🤓

I wanted to reread this book before the Netflix show. I read it in high school and I don't remember it being sad, but man, it was a bummer! I liked it, but the blurb had nothing to do with the actual story, so I was surprised by the plot.

Not my favorite by him but I thought I'd share. I would have rather seen his "Last Vampire" series or his "Remember Me" trilogy adapted instead. Just hope it's better than part one of the Fear Street Netflix series. That was pretty bad. ?

On my #bookquilt because my book club is the beating heart of my bookish being (and both my social media name and book club name was inspired for my love of Pike). She surprised me by adding the cat and books that are the symbol of our club, which made me happy and weepy.

Classic #90skid #YA #suspense reads. Recently rediscovered these while finally getting my attic in order. I know I owned a LOT more Christopher Pike books but haven‘t found the box they‘re in yet. Fingers crossed that it‘s not one of the boxes that drowned in our garage this spring! #icantbringmyselftoseewhatsurvivedfromthoseboxes #wemovedinalmostfouryearsago #theyshouldnthaveevenbeeninthegarageatthispoint #itsaprocess#nostalgia #babbling

This showed up in my TimeHop. So my social media name, book blog and my book club were all inspired by this book (Pike is one of my favorite authors from childhood). When I had @Loriimagination design my blog, I also had her make a graphic for my book club with (and without) our rather sassy book club motto.
