PRACTICAL MAGIC - Alice Hoffman

Image
Who in their right mind doesn't love the witchy Owen sisters with their fun loving aunts?
Now the thing is that the movie and book is completely different. So this only ever happened twice so far, where I pick the movie over the book. Okay don't get the wrong the book a pleasant enough read and the story was good BUT the movie, oh the movie was amazing.

I honestly don't think the movie would have been such a huge success if they kept to the story in the book. The movie is just so much more fun and family love where the book is a bit dry and just ugh... Not ugh in a total bad way but nothing compares to the movie.

So I watched the movie long before I got hold of the book and so when I read the book it was dry and a bit disappointing so I would recommend to FIRST read the book and then go and enjoy the awesome movie. But if it happens that you already saw the movie - still ready the book. Would make you appreciate it more.

NOS4R2 - just a number plate or something much more?
This was an amazing story and you can see that talent run in the King family...
The story takes place around Christmas.
Also about a young girl with a gift that turns into a woman and then a black car and an extremely creepy guy that drives the car. I can't say much more or go into detail as it will give the story away and ruin it.
I read this in a few short days and also around Christmas a few years back, you know to get into the Christmas spirit.

Seeing this photo and thinking about all the weird and dark twists and turns in this book wants me to read it again, plus it is almost Christmas again.

So people that know me can tell you that I love Stephen King and Horror (also coffee) so it just came natural to me to pick up this Joe Hill book and so glad that I did because he clearly got it from his daddy...
This was my first Joe Hill book and by far not the last one I will get. I love his writing style and his stories is dark an…

THE CABIN IN THE WOODS

Image
Who doesn't love a good cliché? I know I love them especially when it comes to my horror movies. Don't get me wrong I love horrors, all of them, but their is just something about a jock, slut, scholar, virgin and the fool.

So I did also watch the movie of course and loved it and this book is just the novel version of the movie. Maybe a little more detailed and of course you can read what they are thinking unlike with movies. So the book is a bit more.

I loved this book, no surprise there... Also I would recommend this book to just about every one I can. This book was also a very fast and easy read. I also loved the setting of the book - woods, lake and a small cabin (reminds me a lot of Evil Dead, the original).

Okay so the name pretty much says it all about what this book is. it is about a Cabin in the woods and these five college students go to for the weekend. The night starts off as fun but then it takes a turn for the worse when they pick their own way to die as part of …

The Exorcist - William Peter Blatty

The Exorcist - William Peter Blatty Thrilling and splendid.
You will finish this novel in one sitting, I did. It is so captivating that you just can't put it down. We all saw the movie and it was great yet scary but this novel it above and beyond, it really plays with your mind. It makes you think that maybe just maybe she does just have a mental illness. It shows how easy a possession can be misdiagnosed as a mental illness and visa versa.
This is really one of those novels that stays with you.
Very unnerving.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Part 1 & 2 - J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany & Jack Thorne

Image
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Part 1 & 2 - J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany & Jack ThorneAbsorbing, Delightful and Spectacular!
The eighth story, nineteen years later. A past that refuse to stay where it belongs,a family legacy that is too heavy of a burden.
Harry Potter and the cursed child continues with the wondrous magical world that we all know and live. We all grew up with these characters and whether we are Griffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin we were part of the Hogwarts experience.

There are plenty of familiar faces - Harry, Ginny, Ron, Hermione and Draco, there are also some that returns as the past changes - Dumbledore, Snape and Voldemort. Also some new comers to this story - Albus and Scorpius (both playing a big part in the changes.)Most people saw this story as Fanfiction since J.K.Rowling never wrote it, it is still like coming home and very enjoyable. It is a fast moving plot and the main theme of the plot is time travel thanks to a Time Turner. I was…

The Darkest Minds & Never Fade - Alexandra Bracken

The Darkest Minds - Alexandra Bracken
Excellent!
What an exceptional read. The characters are enjoyable, courageous and entertaining. Such a heartbreaking ending yet so meaningful. This story have a little bit of everything in it and I would recommend it to everyone, young and old. It shows how heartless people can be and yet how not everyone is alike. How power can change people, some for good and others for worse. How people can corrupt innocent children and treat them like a disease and yet they can get away with it You really root for these characters from the beginning.
I really did enjoy this novel a lot. It is a treasure.


Never Fade - Alexandra Bracken

Oh how I absolutely adore this novel. It shows how love can have a lingering feeling in your heart and makes you appreciate the connection between Ruby and Liam. Here is a few twists and turn that will make you gasp and then a happy and also a horrible ending, such a sad one. Very action packed and a few characters to absolutely…

Delirium, Pandemonium & Requiem - Lauren Oliver

Delirium - Lauren Oliver

An impressive story with a great storyline. You really fall in love with these two main characters and really start to hate others. It is a story about forbidden love with a true heart-wrenching ending.
It shows you the terrible and wonderful side of young forbidden love and it shows you an eerie side to a love less world and how dreadful it can become  to have your feelings taken away from you. It was a pleasant adventurous read with a wretched ending that will make you reach for book 2 faster than you can blink.


Pandemonium - Lauren Oliver

Wow, what a story...
You start to except the ending of Delirium and move on with Lena to a new world anf way of living just to be thrown for a loop at the ending that leaves to breathless and ecstatic at the same time. The adventure continues in this great novel...


Requiem - Lauren Oliver

What a disappointment!
I don't  want to sound mean but this book was rotten. The characters that you love and enjoyed to read a…
