Book Recs Based on the Characters of Stranger Things!

Stranger Things has quickly become one of the most popular shows out there, and one of my absolute favorite things in the universe. It has a unique and memorable cast of characters, an intriguing storyline, and is just all around wonderful entertainment. It’s made me laugh, cry, cringe and squeal. So I thought I’d put together a post of book recs based on the personalities of each central character in the show!
