If you are a hardcore fan of Stranger Things like me, you would binge watch everything from Season 2 and then got stuck of having nothing to do after… But, luckily for us, there are books ! 😀 So here are some books that can delay your withdrawal symptom of Stranger Things feels for a bit or for those of you who haven’t watched it yet, reading these books would be a nice way to prepare for it 😉
To start off, what is Stranger Things ?
Netflix Tv Show. Setting : 1983. Event: A boy goes missing. A monster. Weird events happening. Dark things going on. Romance here and there. A waffle lover and X-Men mutant.
In order to choose which books will be included in this selection, here’s a list of themes that appeared on Stranger Things :
- Supernatural aspects ranging from monsters to creepy interdimensional stuff
- Nostalgia (so anything from 60s to 90s)
- A horror/suspense event
- A bunch of kids in bikes
From that, I choose the books that have the same themes. So here we go!
Boy’s Life by Robert McCammon
The funny thing is I stumbled on this book in a random book sale beside my neighbourhood library. It was the most beautiful story I’ve ever read and It’s a book you will remember. If you like that 60’s vibe and a touch of magical realism, some suspense and horror elements, this is for you.
Zephyr, Alabama, is an idyllic hometown for eleven-year-old Cory Mackenson—a place where monsters swim the river deep and friends are forever.
Paper Girls Vol.1 By Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang
This graphic novel screams Stranger Thing but all girls version!! I picked this up after my friend Brianna, who worked at Indigo, recommended this graphic novel to me and I loved it. It has the right kind of humor, beautiful artwork and that 90’s vibe.
In the early hours after Halloween of 1988, four 12-year-old newspaper delivery girls uncover the most important story of all time. Suburban drama and otherworldly mysteries collide in this smash-hit series about nostalgia, first jobs, and the last days of childhood.
