Welcome to Karmen’s Korner! If you are a new reader, be sure to follow my blog to get notifications on future posts. If you are a returning reader, then welcome back. This week, I am discussing the Stranger Things Novels. There are three total and they are each just as good as the others. If you are a fan of Stranger Things, then I highly recommend you pick up these books. They give background information on some of the major characters and even give you enough information to possibly speculate what characters might make an appearance in upcoming seasons.
*SPOILERS ON STRANGER THINGS*
Suspicious Minds by Gwenda Bond (5/5)
This one was my favorite of the three novels. This one explores Eleven’s mom and how she got involved in the experiments at Hawkins lab with Martin Brenner. It also gives us more information on how she became so powerful and even who her father is. I also loved getting to see that Kali, Eight, was also in this book and had her own POV in the book. Read this book if you are even slightly interested because I promise it won’t disappoint!
Darkness on The Edge of Town by Adam Christopher (4/5)
This one is all about Hopper and the time he spent in New York City as a detective before he moved back to Hawkins. This one was very interesting to see more background on this beloved character. I enjoyed the two timelines in this as well as it is based between season two and three during Christmas with Eleven and he is telling her this story. It definitely gave you more on just how strong their bond had grown since he adopted her.
Runaway Max by Brenna Yovanoff (3/5)
This one was probably my least favorite of the three novels. That isn’t to say it wasn’t good, it just didn’t carry much new information. The general sense of this book is that it is season two in Max’s point of view. It was still interesting to see more on her relationship with Billy and her father in California.
