Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris (Book Review)

What I liked about it:

Easy to read. It was such a short read for me, probably because I was expecting the novel to get more complicated. However, it is a good thing that this was such an easy read – minimal characters, uncomplicated way of narration.
Plot. The plot will make me look forward to how the book will end. Since the story revolves around the wife, saving herself from her husband – wanting to know if they’d get saved made me hang on to the story.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber (Book Review)

When I read it: I liked the setting at first, although it got confusing by the time they entered Caraval. I just could not imagine what Caraval looks like. I am not sure if this looks like a Carnival, if the game is like a festival, or if this is supposed to be a gloomy setting. Does Caraval look like an old palace where players get lost? Scarlett and Julian run, hide and chase someone and I am a little confused with how I could imagine these scenes because one moment it was magical but then it is suddenly dark on the next.  Continue reading Caraval by Stephanie Garber (Book Review)

False Memory by Dean Koontz (Book Review)

What I liked about it:

Rare Plot: It’s not a usual novel that revolves around death. It does not start with a mysterious death by a serial killer that detectives chase the entire book. It starts with no death at all, just a couple of weird things they could not explain.
There were many questions that kept me going, but it never got to the point that I was confused. Also, the questions that I had were all answered in the end.
Connections that I never saw coming. There is more to the villain and his actions, at the near end of the novel it turns out that there was a reason why the main victims, Martie and Dusty, were chosen. Continue reading False Memory by Dean Koontz (Book Review)

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins (Book Review)

What I liked about:

  • Unexpected villain. The Novel was able to hide the villain perfectly by making nearly all characters a suspect. Readers have to go through a series of “I think this is the one” all throughout the book.
  • Interesting scenes. It provides interesting scenes if you ever get tired of reading what really happened to Nel. There are scenes where it was told what happened to the previous women who drowned in that River. Continue reading Into the Water by Paula Hawkins (Book Review)

The Keeper of Lost Things By Roth Hogan (Book Review)

What made me choose this book: I’ve been looking for books that are as good as the previous book I read, which is “The Roanoke Girls” . Aside from the very intriguing title, I was curious with the entire story since I was expecting this to be a story filled with magic. I was expecting that the “Keeper of Lost Things” is a person who’s found in the gates of heaven. I was wrong, but I was not disappointed. Continue reading The Keeper of Lost Things By Roth Hogan (Book Review)

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan (Book Review)

What I liked about it:

⦁ It is addictive. At some point while reading the book, I realized that this is not my type of novel to read. There is no dead girl involved, no mystery, no crime to be solved – just crazy rich asians, and it turned out to be as a page turner just like all the thrillers I’ve read (no matter how far from being a thriller this is). Continue reading Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan (Book Review)

The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel (Book Review)

My Rating: 9/10

What made me choose this book: I was on a few pages of “Sad Girls” by Lang Leav when I decided that I wanted to read something else. I tried this book, since I got curious with the title. When I saw the family tree and read the first chapter, I knew right away that I’m gonna love it. Continue reading The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel (Book Review)

Life After Life by Kate Atkinson (Review)

I would like to remember this as “the book that made me never want to read ebooks again” I read this as an ebook and was so disappointed and confused to the point that I thought the ebook providers were making fun of the readers by shuffling the chapters of the book. Ofcourse, I was wrong with the accusation and I realized that I just can’t blame anyone if I find the book horrible. Continue reading Life After Life by Kate Atkinson (Review)
