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

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

Absorbing, 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 hoping for some Dramione, but no such luck. It still shows a few diffrent scenarios and brings back a few loved characters that died.

Even though it is in play form it's still an easy enjoyable read. For the die-hard fans,such as myself, you will hlfinish this story in a few hours.

We will always remember the anniversary of The Battle Of Hogwarts May 2 1998.
Always

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 hate to the core... The storyline is great, didn't expect anything less. This was an exquisite novel, just like the first one.

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 about is just not the same, they don't have that same feeling as before and act like drama queens. The storyline itself is not bad at all but the ending is just dreadful.
No conclusion at all, just a gigantic open ending. It just don't cut it, it have a feeling of unfinished, like the author didn't know how to end it so she just didn't...

Mr. Mercedes - Stephen King

Stephen king - Mr. Mercedes

Wow... what a thrilling story!
It sure makes you look at people differently and much more cautiously. It shows also not to judge a person by their appearance, since the normal man can be a psychotic killer and the nervouse nutcase woman can be a very valuable member to yor case and a potential friend.
This book had its disturbing parts but it was truly a great novel. Not only to you get to explore the Det. POV but also the killer's POV. Most definitely a great cat-and-mouse story...
A must read not only for Stephen King fans but also to anyone who loves a good detective/thriller & psychology thriller story.
Brilliantly written with a compelling story line.

I loved it! It was short and sweet with Professor Dumbledore's Notes. It takes you back to the whole Harry Potter world.
It truly is a cute book worth the read for any HP fan and even great as bedtime stories...

I love the whole diverse fairy tales with all the magic and delight and even with morals implied...

The Woman in Black - Susan Hill

The Woman in Black - Susan Hill

We have all seen the movie but this novel goes deeper and with a completely different ending and in-betweens...
It is chilling and heartbreaking and a ghost story.
Eel Marsh House, salt marshes, Nine Lives Causeway, Arthur Kipps, the woman in black, a mystery and ghostly noices and happenings.

It will give you a chill down your spine 👻
