Review for Who Could That Be At This Hour? (All The Wrong Questions, #1)

Who Could That Be At This Hour? (All The Wrong Questions, #1) Lemony Snicket is back!!!!! twirls

I was sooo excited when I saw a new book would come out, this time featuring the little Snicket, and how everything started.

I loved the pictures, they just complement the story and make it even better.

It was a fun book, I had some laughs, and also was cheering for Snicket.

I can’t wait for more books!

Review for The Hallowed Ones (The Hallowed Ones, #1)

Review for The Hallowed Ones (The Hallowed Ones, #1)

The Hallowed Ones (The Hallowed Ones, #1) This was an awesome book. I loved the combination of Vampires + Amish.

Though I don’t know much about the Amish, I felt like they gave a good portrayal of how life goes there.

The vampires where really scary, and I know I had a few nights with less sleep. 🙁

As soon as book 2 gets a paperback I will be pre-ordering it, and I can wait to read it. 🙂

Review for Fifty Shames of Earl Grey

Review for Fifty Shames of Earl Grey

Fifty Shames of Earl Grey Just wow.. wow.

I never will read the Fifty Shades books, but I was really interesting in a parody book about it.
And what a ride. Like I was reading some superhero comic that added sex and romance and silliness mixed together in one colourful blend.

Some things were just unbelievable, but all in all it was an interesting and fun read.
Loved the twilight references/parodies, really silly. Also finding/reading all the references/parodies was interesting. 🙂

I might even try the second book (whenever it comes out).

I would recommend it to everyone (though I wouldn’t suggest it to people under 18, there are enough scenes that are quite graphic).

Review for Fat Vampire: A Never Coming of Age Story

Review for Fat Vampire: A Never Coming of Age Story

Fat Vampire: A Never Coming of Age Story Wow what a story. I didn’t expect most of the stuff that happened. I just expected a story about a boy who gets turned to vampire and has to live with it, I got the first part. But with that also action, more vampires, the lead character changing and lots more.
The last part of the book just went by in superspeed, lots of action, questions being answered.
Though the really last part was a bit confusing and I hoped for more answers. How is it going with Jay and Abby, how is Sejal or Cat?

Sadly the middle part of the book was quite confusing as the focus shifted from our lead character Doug to multiple other people.

Review for The Stepford Wives

Review for The Stepford Wives

The Stepford Wives **warning to all for the version with ISBN: 9781849015899* Don’t read the introduction!!
Great the Introduction of the book spoiled the whole book for me. They tell us exactly what happens and what the end is. Which is a shame, I never saw the movie or read the book and now I don’t really feel like reading because I know what happened. I wanted to have a nice horror/mystery book and looked forward to reading it.

Review for Margot

Review for Margot

Margot Niet wat ik verwachtte. Ik verwachtte meer zoiets als the boy who loved Anne Frank. Helaas was dit best kort en beschreef het maar een miniem deel (een paar dagen) van het leven van Margot. Er waren wat flashbacks naar andere dingen, maar toch teleurstellend. Ik had verwacht dat we niet alleen een paar dagen zouden krijgen, maar ook bijvoorbeeld het hele verhuizen naar het Achterhuis, hoe het daar ging.

Ook de stukjes over Lotte en haar minnaar waren voor mijn gevoel onnodig. Ik heb deze veel al overgeslagen, niet alleen omdat het totaal niks met het verhaal had te doen (ik kom voor een verhaal over Margot) maar ook de seksuele tint die het had me niet echt blij maakte.

Ik was blij toen ik klaar was met het boek.
