80's Book Memories - Vol. 3: Private School Series


Well, this concludes my 3-part series on my favorite 80's young adult book series. The Private School book series was the last series of books that I was an avid fan of. Published in the late 80's, these type of young adult book series were steadily losing steam, while craptacular watered-down versions in the form of Goosebumps and Fear Street were beginning to build momentum.

The Private School series, whose tagline read "When Classes End, The Horror Begins...," was a series of 6 ongoing stories that revolved around an exclusive boarding school known as Thaler Academy. Little do the students know that the school and even the town is infested with werewolf-like aliens, who have bloodlust and world domination on their collective mind.

The chills came fast and furious, so I was never bored. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I loved the covers. Werewolves creep me out to begin with, so needless to say, all the covers creeped me out.

There were six books in all. I just ordered and received the last 2 books in the series. I can't wait to go back to School!
