“Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” By J.K. Rowling Review

Harry Potter’s summer has included the worst birthday ever, doomy warnings from a house-elf called Dobby, and rescue from the Dursleys by his friend Ron Weasley in a magical flying car. Back at HOGWARTS SCHOOL OF WITCHCRAFT AND WIZARDRY for his second year, Harry hears strange whispers echo through empty corridors – and then the attacks start. Students are found as though turned to stone… Dobby’s sinister predictions seem to be coming true.

I gotta say that I’ve enjoyed this second book much more than the first book in the series. And it was a little bit better than the first book but not much better just a half point better. 

I think that most of you have read this books well as the whole series. So I don’t need to explain this book.

The writing style in this book was the generic young adult book writing style as you might expect from it. But when it comes to the overall rating of the writing style then it was pretty decent but nothing extraordinary. 

I gotta give this book points for giving us more background of Hogwarts and what things happened before Harry Potter arrived at the school. 

The plot in this book is amazing, it gripped me and wouldn’t let me go until I’ve finished the entire book. The entire plot it super interesting and enjoyable but there couple of moments where the action went to slow.

When it comes to the action then it was very slow. The whole action of this book happens at the ending fo the book which really pissed me off because this book would have been better if the action started sooner then the ending.

The ending was super fun, and it brought a lot to the story which I need to give it points for. 

However I wished that we could have seen more from the teachers and that the book would make every teacher in the book different from the other teachers. 

When it comes to my favourite character in the series then it is still Professor Snape. If he would have been a real teacher at my school back in the day, then for sure he would be my all time favourite teacher and I would have been at least 5 minutes early to each of his classes. 

I give this book 4 / 5

“The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner” By Stephenie Meyer Review

Exploration of the life of newborn vampire Bree Tanner, who briefly appears in the novel Eclipse as a member of Victoria’s vampire army. Bree is a teenage girl who is changed into a vampire by Victoria. Bree lives with a coven of twenty other newborns and Riley, Victoria’s subordinate.

So I gotta say here that this book was so much better than the first twilight book. This one was my second twilight book so I can’t really compare it to other books in the series. But that gonna change that soon enough, I hope at least. 

The things which pissed me off with the first twilight book didn’t exist here because it wasn’t about Edward and Bella. They were in this book but they were more like side characters which I enjoyed. Bree, the main character was younger than Bella in the first book but she was more likeable, she made better decisions. If Bella was even somehow similar to Bree then the whole main plot would have been so much better.  

This book provides us with a new and unique look into the book series which I truly enjoyed and Stephenie Meyer should write more book in this series which are from perspectives of more side characters like Jasper’s perspective, Jacob’s perspective, Esme’s perspective, Carlisle’ perspective and so on. Doing this would add a lot to this whole universe. 

The writing style was okay, but not much to talk about here. It for the most part was a typical YA book writing style which you know isn’t too deep or too hard. The language is very simple which really speaks that it is a YA book.

The plot itself was very good, it was so much better than the first twilight book. Because it had much more into it. It was short and it didn’t drag for so long as it did with the first book.

The characters here didn’t make so many decisions which pissed me off like they did in the first book in this series. Im really grateful for that because it shows that Stephenie Meyer can great good characters. 

I kind of wished that this book would have been longer than it was. And that this book had more descriptions to it and that it would start at the moment when Bree become a vampire so that we would be more familiar with her and get to know here better.

The ending here was good because it ended in the battlefield between the two covens on the open field in the forest. And I kind of liked that because you wasn’t left with nothing to connect the book to. 

I give this book 4 / 5

“Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” By J.K. Rowling Review

When a letter arrives for unhappy but ordinary Harry Potter, a decade-old secret is revealed to him that apparently he’s the last to know. His parents were wizards, killed by a Dark Lord’s curse when Harry was just a baby, and which he somehow survived. Leaving his unsympathetic aunt and uncle for Hogwarts, a wizarding school brimming with ghosts and enchantments, Harry stumbles upon a sinister mystery when he finds a three-headed dog guarding a room on the third floor. Then he hears of a missing stone with astonishing powers which could be valuable, dangerous – or both. 

So I gotta be honest here with you and say that this was my first read of this book. I didn’t read this franchise as a kid which really may shook some of you guys. And I need to say that this book was much better than I’ve expected. But also this book was 100 times better than the movies. 

After reading this book I understand the hype with this series because it is fucking good, and it is worth reading no matter if you are 8 years old or 60 years old. No matter your age or gender this book will blow your mind. There is much more into this book than you might expect from this series but trust me give this book a chance.

This book is a very enjoyable read, because most of the characters are so well written. Most of the characters in this book have a feeling to them which makes them real to you, so this book needs to get points for that. 

The characters here are good at least most of them are good. There are some characters which could have more work done on them, but there isn’t a lot of these characters. Most characters in this book are interesting. 

The character development in this book is just through the roof, you can very clearly see how much Harry, Ron and Hermione have grow and developed as characters. J.K Rowling made the characters in this book feel super real which she needs to get point for.

When we talk about the character, I need to mention that I’ve wish that Severus Snape would have been given more time in the spotlight than what he actually had had. If you are wondering then yes Severus Snape is my favorite character at least so far after watching all the movies at least 5 times and reading this book. But lets see if that changes as I continue to read the books. 

The writing style in this one is pretty good, but it feels too easy and too simple at least for my taste. But this comes from a person who’s favorite fantasy series is A song of ice and fire. And after all this is a YA book so I need to pass the writing style because it was good enough.

The plot here was amazing, maybe not the best but still amazing. I had so much fun reading this book. I couldn’t just reading this book when I’ve first started which really speaks for itself here because this doesn’t happen a lot to me. 

When it comes to the descriptions in this book then you gotta know that they are good, but in my opinion they could have been better. In my opinion there could have been more descriptions in this book. 

I give this book 4 / 5

“The Complete Fiction of H.P. Lovecraft” By H.P. Lovecraft Review

The Complete Fiction of H.P. Lovecraft collects the author’s novel, four novellas, and fifty-three short stories. Written between the years 1917 and 1935, this collection features Lovecraft’s trademark fantastical creatures and supernatural thrills, as well as many horrific and cautionary science-fiction themes, that have influenced some of today’s writers and filmmakers, including Stephen King, Alan Moore, F. Paul Wilson, Guillermo del Toro, and Neil Gaiman.

This one is the second last book I’ve finished in last year (2021). And I’m reviewing this one because I didn’t finish to review all of H.P Lovecraft’s work until week ago. 

This one involves every short story written by the man himself. And with this book being read means that I’ve was able to read everything from Edgar Allan Poe and H.P Lovecraft in a year.

I had so much fun reading this book because every short story had something in it. And every short story has the biggest gothic vibe to it

If I’m gonna have kids in the future then they will be made reading this book no matter what. 

Of course every short story was different from the rest. Some were much better and some were much worse. But this book as a whole was fucking brilliant. 

Reading this book was like seeing the journey of horror, it was like seeing the first steps of the horror we know so well today. 

This book is completely worth the money and the time you will spend on it because this book is full of classics and while reading this book you are seeing the journey of horror.

I give this book 4 / 5

“A Clash of Kings” By George R.R. Martin Review

A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. Two great leaders—Lord Eddard Stark and Robert Baratheon—who hold sway over an age of enforced peace are dead, victims of royal treachery. Now, from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. 

Another amazing, awesome, incredible and beautiful fantasy book. This one is the second part in the “A song of ice and fire” book series. I gotta be honest here and say that this second book is less impressive than the first book in this book series but none a less it is still fucking brilliant.

This book has a lot to live up to and it doesn’t disappoint the reader. Which in my opinion is very good because when it comes to book series it tends to go down the hill after the first book but it doesn’t happen yet with this book series which im really thankful for because if the rest of the series is so good as the first two books then it might be my all time favorite book series.

The character are so awesome, they feel so fucking real. And every single character is so different from the rest which makes this book and whole series so unique as it is. Every character in this book has depth to them, they have characteristic which are unique only to them. Every character have things which they don’t like and like. As I’ve already said every character in this book feels like real human beings because there are so much into them. 

The writing style here is also as impressive as the characters. Because the writing style is so good that the pages fly past when you pick up the book and you will be siting for hours and hours reading this book without even noticing it. The writing style makes you seeing these things in your head which you are currently are reading about.

The plot in this book is just amazing. There is love, there is drama, there is death, there is the unknown, there is betrayal, there are big families who are fighting for the throne, there are friends, there are enemies, there are lover, there is intrigue, there is fighting, there is power struggle and there is so much more. When there is so much things in a book you just can’t help yourself but love it.

There is also history in this book of what was going on before the current events in this book and before the events in the first book. Whenever there is so much history in a book, how could you not love it ? Because most of the fantasy books now on days doesn’t have that aspect which this series so far has. 

This book also needs to get extra points for being a page-turner. The main reason why I didn’t get into this series sooner is because the size of ever book has always scared me. But after getting into this series I’ve resized that this series (at least so far) is a page turner which really helps because every book in this series is huge. But since it is a page turner you don’t really feel the size of every book because the pages go so fast by.

The dialogs between the characters in this book is also important to mention so here it is. The dialogos here are pretty good but some of them felt little bit off and unnatural but there are few of them. It takes couple points away from the rating but nothing major. 

I give this book 4 / 5

“If Tomorrow Starts Without Me” By David Romano Review

To be fully honest with you this poem is one of the best poems I’ve read so far. 

The writing style here is just amazing, it really proves why so many people in the world loves poems so much as they do.

This poem brings to light some important things which we might not thought about before. 

As you may guess from the title of this poem, this poem is about death and what will happen if tomorrow starts without you or me.

I love the story in this poem, its so incredible that I don’t even have words. 

I give this poem 4 / 5

“Poetry” By Marianne Moore Review

This poem is about an investigation into the mysterious art of poetry. At times ironic and serious, Moore considers the opposing methods by which poets convey the world: intellection and imagination.

I gotta be honest here because this poem was really surprised me a lot. It had surprised me in a good way which I really didn’t expect to happen.

The plot here was enjoyable and super interesting. And it for the most part gets the full score when it comes to the plot.

The writing style here was kind of okay here but it could have been much better than it acutely was. 

The vibe here is scientific but also has it had the gothic vibe to it which again im a big fan off. 

I give this poem 4 / 5

“Jabberwocky” By Lewis Carroll Review

The poem follows a young boy who is warned to beware a creature called the Jabberwock. The boy ignores the warning and goes looking for the Jabberwock. When he finds the creature, he battles it and returns home victorious. His father greets him with praises.

So this one really surprised me because of how good it actually was. I didn’t have any expectations for this one and maybe that’s why I liked it so much.

The writing style in this one was okay, but nothing too much to talk about. Because if you compare the writing stye to other poems like Edgar Allan Poe’s poems then the level of writing style wasn’t so great.

The plot here was pretty good but nothing too extraordinary. The plot in this poem had the potential to get to full score but it didn’t use it. Which is sad, because it was really close to get the full score. 

I give this poem 4 / 5

“Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” By Robert Frost Review

This poem is about the contemplation of nature and man’s relationship to nature. The poem describes a man making his way home on a snowy evening to stop and watch a neighbor’s woods fill up with snow, despite the cold and the late hours.

This one is another amazing poem from Robert Frost not as good as the previous poem we talked about but not far behind.

This poem is fun to read and super enjoyable because it explores the relationship which human beings can have with nature. 

This poem doesn’t fail to show us the beauty of snow. If you are like me, you too take a moment to appreciate snow every time it falls from the sky every winter.

I personally love poems and books which takes place during winter because my favourite time during the whole year is winter and snow.  So the fact that the events in this poem takes place during a snowy evening gains more points from me.

The writing style is again very beautiful and very amazing. Which really makes you realise why Robert Frost is one of the best poet which every lived. 

This poem is an example on a good poem and how each poem should be like.

This poem gets 4 / 5

“Beyond the Wall of Sleep” By H.P. Lovecraft Review

A former intern and a worker of a mental hospital relates his experience with Joe Slater, an inmate who died at the facility a few weeks after being confined as a criminally insane murderer.

The plot in this short story was good, not as amazing as I’ve expect it to be. But it still was very good, very interesting, very fun to read and very engaging. Which really speaks for itself doesn’t it? 

The writing style here was very good, I had some high expectations for this short story but not as high as the writing style turned out to be. The writing style really made you imagine in your head what you are reading in this short story. 

I know that there are some people on the internet that are saying that this short story is racist, but come on give this short story a break. It was published over 100 years ago and a lot of things was very different in 1919 hen this short story was published. Which means that we have different options and standards now than people in 1919 had. But let’s go back to the review shall we ?

I need to give this short story points for showing us that the line between reality and dreams might be very blurred at times. And I’m into that if you didn’t know it so far. 

And this short story really shows us that dreams play an important role in the world of H.P Lovecraft and his stories. 

I read a couple of H.P Lovecraft’s stories and this one so far was the only one to stand out a little bit from the rest I’ve read so far. The reason why it stands out is because the positive insinuation rather than the manipulation of horror which sort of is a relevant topic in the stories from H.P Lovecraft. 

I give this short story 4 / 5
