Coraline (The Graphic Novel) – Book Review

Hello, people of the internet!

Since Halloween is nearly among us, I have been preparing myself for spooky films, pumpkin carving and, of course, scary books. I have decided to reread a classic of mine, but this time, instead of book or film form – I have read it in the form of a graphic novel! Continue reading “Coraline (The Graphic Novel) – Book Review”

My Friday Thoughts – The Book I Will Not Finish?

Hello, people of the internet!

For those who don’t know, I very rarely do not finish books because there is always a chance the book may improve later on. Yes, it would be better if I just left them, but there is a voice in my head that constantly says, “You never know, maybe the book gets better? Why waste the opportunity?”

Why do I do this to myself?

However, there has been a book recently that I have tried to read, but I haven’t picked up nor, to be honest, want to pick up.

And that book is… Continue reading “My Friday Thoughts – The Book I Will Not Finish?”

Books That Have Stayed: Coraline

Hello, people of the internet!

This is my series discussing books that I read years ago that are not only books I love, but have something(s) about them that make them stand out, memorable and have taught me important lessons.

So when I was thinking about books that have stayed with me, one popped into my head not only suddenly, but stayed there as if waiting for me to write this post.

And as I was planning this, I realised why it has stayed with me. It was for two reasons: it was the first horror to actually scare me; and it taught me an important lessons about bravery.

Spoiler alert: I will be talking about the plot to Coraline in great detail. You have been warned!

Slade House – Book Review

Hello, people of the internet!

Here is a book I couldn’t help but read in one day. I didn’t rush it or force myself to finish it within a day. I just found myself in a good book. Of course, once I finish reading a book and start to think about it, I begin to think about it more logically. I don’t know if anyone does this as well, but I find it difficult to not stop thinking about a book once I’ve read it. And sometimes, when I think I’ve thought it about too much and try to stop, the book somehow finds it’s way back into my brain.

And this is the book in question. Continue reading “Slade House – Book Review”

The Loney – Book Review

Hello, people of the internet!

So, here’s a little background. At the beginning of this February, I uploaded a post talking about the books I wanted to read this month – you can read it here. And, round of applause please, I managed to stick to it! I read all four books this month like I planned! I was hoping to read more books (the ones I specifically were meant to be the main books I wanted to read) but I couldn’t read as much as I wanted.

Anyway, enough about me and my book-reading planning skills, here is the last book I read this month! Continue reading “The Loney – Book Review”

My Friday Thoughts – Genres I Should

Hello, people of the internet!

On Wednesday, I uploaded a post about my Top 5 Fiction Genres (which you can read here) and it got me thinking this: how about the other genres I neglected? What if there’s a story out there perfect for me and I haven’t read it because it’s a certain genre? Well, I have given it some thought and I want to discuss these genres in more detail.

So, here is a list of genres I no longer want to neglect! Continue reading “My Friday Thoughts – Genres I Should Read More Of”
