“New Moon” By Stephenie Meyer Review

I knew we were both in mortal danger. Still, in that instant, I felt well. Whole. I could feel my heart racing in my chest, the blood pulsing hot and fast through my veins again. My lungs filled deep with the sweet scent that came off his skin. It was like there had never been any hole in my chest. I was perfect – not healed, but as if there had never been a wound in the first place. 

I gotta say it felt nice to not have Edward on every single page of the book, and have a little break from him in this book. Not having Edward around, Bella have become so much better character than she is when Edward is around. Every time Edward is around Bella becomes a 10 year old girl in completely in love. That isn’t even half bad. The thing which is the worst with this series is that Bella won’t shut up when it comes to how Vampires are much better than humans and how being  a human sucks. This aspect of this series really pisses me off because being a human is something much better than being a worthless dumb vampire. Yes I’m not a fan of vampires.

The writing style here is bad, the first book was much better when it came to the writing style. Because the writing style in this one was just super bad and it didn’t make sense to me when I was reading it.

When it comes to the plot itself then I’m sort of mentioned it above, but overall it was much better than the first book in this series. Because Edward wasn’t in this book as much as he was in the first book. For me personally Edward is insufferable, and to me he feels like the definition of a bipolar disorder in a teenager. My favorite character after reading this book becomes Jacob because he is the only person who feels like he is fully sane when everyone else in this book series feels like they are completely insane and out of their minds. 

Im Still having super hard time with the story and the characters because the story and the characters feels so out of touch as it possible can be. Edward is basically the guy with bipolar disorder, Bella is this 18 year old who didn’t develop after the age of 6, and every character beside of Jacob have some kind of disorder to them which truly makes this whole series a freak show. 

However this book isn’t half bad as I thought after watching the movie. The movies in the twilight franchise it the pure torture in my life.

I give this book 3 / 5

“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

“Twilight” By Stephenie Meyer Review

Isabella Swan’s move to Forks, a small, perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made. But once she meets the mysterious and alluring Edward Cullen, Isabella’s life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Up until now, Edward has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret in the small community he lives in, but now nobody is safe, especially Isabella, the person Edward holds most dear. The lovers find themselves balanced precariously on the point of a knife-between desire and danger.Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with a bite.

I gotta be honest here with you. This book really surprised me because I wasn’t expecting how good it actually was when you compare it to the movie. I personally watched the first movie when I was like 8 or 9 and I truly hated the first movie and the rest of the movie franchise wasn’t better than the first. It was actually much worse as the movies kept going. So know 11 years later I didn’t except to give this book more than 1 star and I didn’t expect that I would even thing that it was bad. I was expecting to truly hate this book and comply trash it. But here I am, I gave this book 3 stars, I found this book for whatever reason enjoying and I was really interested in the story was I was reading it. I don’t know what happened with me during read this book but I enjoyed it, I found it interesting at times and it was a huge relief to not see Kristen Stewart which I truly hate and would avoid every movie and series with her at all costs. 

Not seeing Kristen Stewart, was probably one of the reasons why I actually enjoyed this book, and I didn’t want to go to the roof of Trump Tower and jump off as I wanted to do while watching the movies.

The beginning of this book was really giving me the YA vibes and if you know me you know that I’m not the biggest YA fan. So the book looses couple of points on the beginning. But overall it wasn’t super bad but just a little bit. After the first 20-30 pages this book acutely went to be much better than I’ve expect. 

The characters in this book was much better than I’ve expect but don’t misinterpret. Because I’m not saying that they were good I only said that they were much better than ice expect them to be 11 years after I’ve suffered 2 hours and watched Kristen Stewart as the main character.  Kristen Stewart was the reason I’ve expect Bella to be completely and extremely insufferable in this book just as she have been in the movie. But actually Bella was just extremely insufferable in the movie all thanks to none other than Kristen Stewart.

Bella in this book was actually okay, I think that I would be friends with Bella if she was real person going to my high school back in the day. We wouldn’t be best friends but we would hang out like twice a month. There were a lots of moments were Bella was acting like a 5 year old. And this annoyed me everything when a teen character becomes a 5 year old for like 10 minutes to just switch back like nothing every happened. 

When it comes to Edward in this book then I gotta say that at the beginning he really felt like he had multiple personality disorder or bipolar disorder because he was like “I don’t want her, but I don’t want her. But I don’t want her” and this went on for decent 100 pages. It really annoys the shit out of me when real people and characters are like this. Whenever a person or a character is like this, I swear all I want to do is find a baseball bat and beat the shit out of them. That’s how much people like this annoys me. But after around 150 pages he turns to be a pretty good character when it comes to YA and romance books.

Jacob, when it comes to him it really surprised me to find out that he was younger than Bella. I don’t really remember the movies because I’m really good at removing bad things from my brain so I can’t tell if it was the same thing in the movies. But Jacob being younger than Bella really surprised me. And it really disappointed me to see how little Jacob was involved in this book. All he got in this book wasn’t more than 30 pages and my copy of this book is like 500 pages long. And I remember while watching the movies I’ve always found Jacob the most inserting character. But after reading this book I gotta say that my favourite character gotta be Jasper.

The writing style in this book was acutely very good, I didn’t expect it to be so good as it is. But still the writing style is just a typical YA book writing style which doesn’t go so well with me since him not a fan of YA. But it was good enough for this book and for this franchise.

The plot was actually much better than I’ve expected, it really surprised me to find out that I almost forgot everything from the first movie I’ve watched in the twilight movie series. Which is good because I wasn’t imagining Kristen Stewart as Bella. I feel like the plot in this book really adds more into the whole franchise because it has such more than the all the movies together. And the plot was so interesting and so enjoyable to keep me glued to the story. 

However there were a lots of plot wholes and the logic was super bad at many moments throughout this whole book which really made me stop read and just stare at a wall for like 5 minutes. 

I give this book 3 / 5

“Sweet Evil” By Wendy Higgins Review

What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences? This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels.Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She’s aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but it isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He’s the boy your dad warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.

I gotta be honest with you here, this is the second book which is in the category of YA which I personally enjoyed a lot even though it was far from the best. I had a lot of fun time with this book and I couldn’t stop reading it because I got so much into this book.

The plot itself isn’t that unique because there are dozens and dozens movies, series and book for teens about demons, angles, teenagers as the main characters and forbidden love. Which essentially this book is all about. However if you consider this book nothing more than just something to fill your time with then the book is good but the moment when you start analysing and thinking about this book you all realise that this book doesn’t deserve more than 2 stars at the best. However it does have a little bit of an original take on the demons / angles / nephilim situation which ill give the book points for.

The writing style in this book is typical writing style for teenagers to get them to read. What I’m trying to say is that you shouldn’t expect much from the writing style because you won’t get much from it. The writing style in this book is clearly at the high school level which really speaks for itself. 

The characters here are like the most generic and typical characters in a YA book which you can ever have. The main character Anna is the generic “good girl” who does very well in school, has 1 friend, doesn’t party and wants something more from life than just be the shy girl and one evening she falls in love with the bad guy of the town. The other character is Kaiden he is the town’s bad boy, he dated a lot of girls, he is in a band, his father his rich and he has a thing with Anna aka “the good girl”. The third character is Patti, she is the adoptive mother to Anna. Patti is the generic mother from YA books which is overprotective, “no- dating”, no parties mother which every YA books has at some point or another. And the last character ill mention here is Jay, the best friend, lame guy, the guy who falls in love in with every girl at school and so on.

The characters aren’t unique which really didn’t made me care for them, but however since they were so generic as they were it was easy to connect with them because it felt like I’ve already knew them inside and out.

To be honest with you i’ll walked into this book without knowing anything about it, I didn’t even know the plot or who the author is. I was totally blindfold when I’ve started this book. And I had 0 expectations for this book and maybe that’s why I’ve enjoyed it so much as I did because I didn’t expect anything from this book. And sometimes it is good to not know anything about something you are going to do and no have any expectations for it.

I personally couldn’t put this book down for whatever reason, because of this I’m giving it extra points for that even if it wasn’t as original and good as it could be.

I give this book 3 / 5

“Sleepless” By Lou Morgan Review

Young, rich and good-looking, Izzy and her friends lead seemingly perfect lives. But exams are looming and at a school like Clerkenwell, failure is not an option. Luckily, Tigs has a solution. A small pill that will make revision a breeze and help them get the results they need. Desperate to succeed, the group begin taking the study drug. It doesn’t take long before they realize there are far worse things than failing a few exams.

I gotta be honest with you here, this book is the first YA book which I truly enjoyed. Which is pretty weird when it comes to me because I never liked YA books or anything close to it. I didn’t give this book the highest possible rating because there were couple of things which didn’t go well with me but overall it was an interesting and enjoyable read. 

I can summarise this whole book in 5 words which are = 1) teens. 2) studying. 3) drugs. 4) murder. 5) horror. And that’s pretty much the entire book. It wasn’t the most advanced book ever because after all it is a YA book but it was surprisingly good and enjoyable. And it had couple of moments where it was keeping you on the complete edge of your chair and waiting on what will happen next. 

However the ending here is completely awful. It really ruined everything which the author was trying to with this whole book. The ending here is the definition on a terrible ending and what you as an author should never do. 

The writing style here was okay, it was very far from good but it was on the level with the rest of the book. In which case I won’t take any points away from this book because it didn’t ruin anything.

The plot itself wasn’t that good however so far at least I didn’t read anything similar to this before and maybe that’s why I did enjoy it so much.

The beginning was pretty slow but after it got started it had no intentions of stopping which I really don’t mind. Because I prefer when things go faster than slower. 

This book had some creepy parts which I enjoyed and I think you will too. But don’t expect anything from this book because after all it is just a YA book which doesn’t mean that much in the end other than just giving us an entertaining read. 

I give this book 3 / 5

“My Best Friend’s Exorcism” By Grady Hendrix Review

The year is 1988. Charleston, South Carolina. High school sophomores Abby and Gretchen have been best friends since fourth grade. . But after an evening of skinny-dipping goes disastrously wrong, Gretchen begins to act… different. She’s moody. She’s irritable. And bizarre incidents keep happening whenever she’s nearby. Abby’s investigation leads her to some startling discoveries – and by the time their story reaches its terrifying conclusion, the fate of Abby and Gretchen will be determined by a single question: Is their friendship powerful enough to beat the devil?

This book is probably one of the most overhyped books which are reviewed on this blog so far. Most of the people I follow in the book community on the internett have read this book and all of them have rated this book with 4 or 5 stars, which I don’t understand.

I need to give this book points for the 80s vibe in the design of this book, and for the 80s horror movie vibe to the whole story. An extra thing I have appreciated with this book is that there is a Spotify playlist to this book.

The characters in this book are flat, overdramatic and boring. The best way to describe the characters in this book is to say that all the characters are typical YA characters which not a lot of people will like. But in the end if you are not a fan of the YA genre you will not like this book as a whole. This book is a little bit surpricisng and harcorde for a YA book but in the end the way the story is written and the way all characters are presented you will instantly see that this book is a YA book.

The main character Abby really annoyed me annoyed me throughout the whole book. Because at the beginning she was the wannabe kid which wanted to be popular so badly that she could have done anything. And when the books jumpes in time when she and the other main chracter are teens, she is bascially making the stupiest decisions ever just as she had lost her brain somewhere when she was growing up.

The characters in this book felt like the author of this book really tried way too hard to create relevant teens which will make stupid decisions.

The ending is disappointed and you could feel it coming all the way from the middle of this book.

The main plot of this book is possesion, but there are also many (way too many) side plots like rape, some kind of personal vedetta, high school drama, boyfriend / girlfriend drama and other high school bull shit.

The book would be much better if the author cut hald of these side plots and stick to the main plot and dont just focus on the side plots in the middle of the book.

The excessive / gratuitous animal death doesn’t make this book better. If a book has a brutal / excessive / gratuitous aimal death just expect that, that book will get a bad review.

“I love you but not queerly, so don’t expect too much” is a recurring theme of this book so be warned.

I give this book 1 / 5

“Mockingjay” by Suzanne Collins Book Review

The final book in the ground-breaking HUNGER GAMES trilogy, this new foiled edition of MOCKINGJAY is available for a limited period of time. Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12 

This is the third book in the “Hunger games” trilogy. And by far it is the second best.

This book is good at pointing out wise things about propaganda, grief, war, trauma and power of healing. But of course it is a fictional book so these things are good enough for a fictional story which in the end doesn’t mean anything.

It is a YA book, and I know that not everyone is the biggest fan of these kind of books. So keep that in mind.

The characters, are almost the same persons as they were in the first book. So the character growth is very poor in this book. There are some annoying characters, and almost all characters take very stupid decisions. The only character in this book who is reasonable and thinks logically is Gale and the rest of the characters have lost their brains somewhere. The descriptions of the characters isn’t better. 

This book is a good example that the author put quantity over quality. This book would be so much better if it had less characters and if these characters who were in this book would have more depth. 

The writing style in this book is more or less decent and nothing to really be hyped with. Writing style is on the level with something a high school student would write. 

There is a huge drag in the middle of this book, which really brings this book down. And it feels like the author tries to drag out this book for so long as it is possible. 

The ending wasn’t satisfying or at least it wasn’t for me. The ending we got wasn’t something good. It was for the most part disappointing and boring.

Plot holes are very relevant in this book. Probably the most important thing in this book wasn’t shown to us, I’m talking about the trail of Katniss. We only got shown the days before and after the trail. 

Katniss in this book, felt like she forgot everything she been through in the past 2 books. And in this book she turned into a very boring and annoying character. 

The PTSD in this book was so poorly done, it basically felt like someone was just sad after failing an exam. 

However I need to say that this book was probably the best book of the whole trilogy. 

I give this book 3 / 5

“Catching Fire” by Suzanne Collins Review

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol – a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create. Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest that she’s afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she’s not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol’s cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can’t prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying. Katniss is about to be tested as never before.

The second book in “The Hunger Games” trilogy. And its getting downhill.

There were obvious that this book was heavily targeting toward the Twilight crowd. And it is also a sign that you should stop here and don’t read the last book.

The characters are even more annoying than in the first book. like Katniss was in this book a huge dick and she was selfish. Katniss and Peeta feels almost too perfect for the games. Katniss is the perfect hunter and Peeta is the perfect person to get people on his side. You know what I mean?

In the end this book lacks charm, engagement and the unique part. This book is a typical book written just for the cash.

This book would be much better if it went deeper, explaining a little more about the history of the games etc. And basically it would be better if this book was adding more to the story, not just telling what had happened after the events of the first book and nothing more than that.

The beginning was some kind of fine and similar to the first book in the trilogy but after that the book goes downhill. And it basically ends up with Katniss being an asshole at the end.

Once again the author fails to explain more about the hunger game itself which Katniss and Peeta are in. This annoy me because the author spends 80 pages talking about what costumes Katniss and Peeta got but when it comes to the game itself the author uses like 10 pages on it and after that it is all over.

The writing style and descriptions in this book are better than in the first book. But still it wasn’t on the level with Stephen King or Dan Brown. There are a lots of missing things which could improve the writing in this book. When it comes to the twist in the middle, was kind of a drag and lazy.

 I give this book 1 of out 5
