Review for Umineko WHEN THEY CRY Episode 2: Turn of the Golden Witch, Vol. 2

Review for Umineko WHEN THEY CRY Episode 2: Turn of the Golden Witch, Vol. 2

Umineko WHEN THEY CRY Episode 2: Turn of the Golden Witch, Vol. 2 This was another really great volume. It was also a really sad one, I cried a few times.

And we finally see the Stakes of Purgatory in flesh instead of the daggers/stakes they normally are.

What happened to Battler near the end was quite disturbing, though I expected it, since I saw some wallpapers/scans with that art, but nonetheless still disturbing.

Can’t wait for the next book!

Review for Asylum (Asylum, #1)

Review for Asylum (Asylum, #1)

Asylum (Asylum, #1) Might contain spoilers. (not big ones though)

I was planning to buy this book, and while it is 3 stars (so decent), I am happy I didn’t buy it immediately. It was a disappointment, there where barely any pictures, and most wouldn’t be what I was expecting. I mean less pictures of patients (real or not?), more of spooky empty hallways, more of rooms, the theatre.

Also the characters. Ugh. I really disliked our main character throughout a big, big part of the book. He turned out a bit better. Abby was ok, I really liked her and her story, and I was actually cheering for her.

I found it a bit of a big coincidence that 2 of our 3 main characters had a history with the asylum (they might not have known it until a bit further in the book, but still. One is nice, but 2… not really)

There were also other things. Like the the fact that they just re-used an asylum for a dorm. Like nothing happened down there. Nothing gruesome, nothing special. Really some people should learn the history and see if a place is good or bad.

Apparently the ending hints to a second book, and while I am kinda hoping for it, I felt it was pretty conclusive. Sure we still have answers, and some new questions, but for me it was done. And I don’t think I will continue with this series. Unless the second book is exceptional and awesome.

In overall, a good book, but if you are looking for a spooky asylum and beautiful pictures of asylums, then I would suggest you find another book. If you don’t mind a story like what I just mentioned, then go ahead and read it, it is perfect for you. 🙂

Review for Whisper

Review for Whisper

Whisper Dit was op sommige punten echt spannend, maar ook op punten niet.

Ik vond het ook meer focussen op de relatie van David en Noa dan op Eliza. Er was natuurlijk genoeg over Eliza, maar toch ik had meer verwacht. Meer gespook door het huis, meer griezelige dingen.

Het uiteindelijke climax van het verhaal was best goed, toen werd het toch even heel spannend, en ik was toch ook al een tijdje aan het gokken wie het was, maar ik had die persoon niet echt verwacht. Uiteindelijk als je terug leest zie dat er hints waren, maar de eerste keer kun je die missen.

Verder het was een redelijk boek, leuk als je wat romantiek/thriller wil lezen. Maar als je verwacht veel gespook en enge dingen te krijgen, dan kun je beter het boek laten voor wat het is.

Review for Broken Hearts (Fear Street Superchiller, #4)

Review for Broken Hearts (Fear Street Superchiller, #4)

Broken Hearts (Fear Street Superchiller, #4) Watch out, may contain Spoilers!

I must say it started off quite awesome, with them going horseback riding and one ending up falling

But sadly, the rest of the book wasn’t that good. Josie was just, sorry for my language, a bitch, a really big selfish bitch. When she started getting threatening letters I was just hoping they were true. I don””t want to wish anyone dead, but sorry. Poor Erica had to give up everything for Rachel, since Josie just does what she wants and leaves Erica with the mess. :/

Around the part were a certain someone meets their fate, I was just cheering and starting at that point the book got a bit better.

But still, when I found out who the criminal mastermind was, I was kind of surprised and also not. Surprised since I had anticipated someone else, and also not, since a lot of things just pointed out to that character.

In overall a nice book, but nothing really special.

Review for Ik en de Rovers zingen karaoke

Review for Ik en de Rovers zingen karaoke

Ik en de Rovers zingen karaoke Leuk boek, maar ik vond het toch minder dan het vorige boek. Ik vond het een beetje uitgerekt en te lang op sommige stukken. Ik miste ook een beetje de overvallen, die juist vrij veel voorkwamen in het eerste boek.

Ik vond het baby gedeelte echt briljant, wie bedenkt nou dat een baby een apocalyptisch wapen kan zijn. Ach dat zijn ze in de echte wereld ook soms. 😉

Review for Secrets, Lies and Locker 62

Review for Secrets, Lies and Locker 62

Secrets, Lies and Locker 62 Small review.

This was a really fun book. I really like the whole locker 62 and the fact that everyone just is under the impression that no one will ever get that locker.

Think again, our new girl gets that locker. And she wants to do good with all the secrets and confessions.

I however didn’t like our main girl that much. She had wonderful friends, and she only cares about popularity for a lot of the time. Oh dear, I have this wonderful goth friend, but she is not popular. Oh dear, stress, panic! Seriously girl? Popularity might be nice, but isn’t it much better to have friends? Friends you can always trust, friends who won’t dump you because you might dress weird or act weird?

There was also another story next to the locker, that of her mom, who is pregnant, and of Dave, who wants the main characters mom back.

The book was packed with fun and niceness. But I felt like there could be a second book. One with her and her new family, and her continuing with the whole locker. 🙂

Review for Double Date (Fear Street, #23)

Review for Double Date (Fear Street, #23)

Double Date (Fear Street, #23) This was a great book. I really loved it.

Bobby was a real playboy, thinking he could just keep going an no one would mind it. Oh boy was he wrong!

I loved Bree and Samantha, they were awesome and I loved their little plan.

Let’s hope Bobby has learned a wise lesson regarding girls and dating. You shouldn’t date 2 at a time!
