If you just walked the Stranger Things season 4 trailer 35 times like us, you might be counting down the days until May 27th when Netflix releases it.
And we know waiting is hard, so here are 9 books with definite Stranger Things vibes to read while you wait!
1. The Electric Kingdom by David Arnold
The Electric Kingdom has all the ravaged earth and ragtag crew fighting for survival elements we love from Stranger Things!
2. The Girls I’ve Been by Tess Sharpe
We love Millie Bobby Brown in Stranger Things, and we can’t WAIT to see her as Nora O’Malley in the adaptation of Tess Sharpe’s The Girls I’ve Been!
3. Rules for Vanishing by Kate Alice Marshall
Imagine if an entire book were written about the Upside Down. In fact, we’re pretty certain this book was written in the Upside Down to begin with. You may want to invest in a good nightlight because this book will give you a whole new reason to be afraid of the dark.
**WARNING** Do not read this book alone at night. Please do not call Penguin Teen and complain you had nightmares because you didn’t listen to us.
4. When the Sky Fell on Splendor by Emily Henry
Before Emily Henry wrote Beach Read, she wrote this! In case the cover didn’t tip you off, this book is packed full of stuff we loved in Stranger Things. The ragtag group of kids on bicycles? Invasion from otherworldly species? Super powers? Sign. Us. UP.
If the monsters in the Stranger Things season 4 trailer gave you CHILLS, we’re inviting you into the Greater Jungle. Watch your step though, terrifying monsters are lurking everywhere.
6. The Girls Are Never Gone by Sarah Glenn Marsh
If the VERY haunted house in the season 4 trailer gave you goosebumps!
7. The Taking of Jake Livingston by Ryan Douglass
Jake’s travels to the underworld give us definite Upside Down vibes.
8. Dark and Shallow Lies by Ginny Myers Sain
Kids with powers in a strange town? Monsters lurking in the night? This read may be just what you need to hold you over until season 4!
9. House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland
This book has the addictive vibe that made you binge watch every season of Stranger Things so far. In short: prepare to enter The Halfway.
