The Woman in Black, a review of the past

Littlepages

The Woman in Black

20180219_011758[1]The Woman in Black is known for it’s terror and at the time ground-breaking ideas. For me, this book was one that changed the game of ghost stories. I have read a few but none have ever left me in so much suspense whilst reading and terror after finishing. The book starts off in a present day where the character of Arthur Kipps is talking about his life and how the past has changed him. At this time, we do not know quite what has caused some of the fear he holds and references whilst talking. However, we do know that, as the title suggests, it is around a woman dressed all in black.

In the following chapter, Arthur is talking about the past events starting at the beginning of the cause of the terror he still faces in the present. He begins talking about London…

Evil in lacy gloves – Book review for NetGalley – The Life She Was Given by Ellie Marie Wiseman

Snow Queen SVT

32926258 The Life She Was Given 

From acclaimed author Ellen Marie Wiseman comes a vivid, daring novel about the devastating power of family secrets–beginning in the poignant, lurid world of a Depression-era traveling circus and coming full circle in the transformative 1950s.

On a summer evening in 1931, Lilly Blackwood glimpses circus lights from the grimy window of her attic bedroom. Lilly isn’t allowed to explore the meadows around Blackwood Manor. She’s never even ventured beyond her narrow room. Momma insists it’s for Lilly’s own protection, that people would be afraid if they saw her. But on this unforgettable night, Lilly is taken outside for the first time–and sold to the circus sideshow.

More than two decades later, nineteen-year-old Julia Blackwood has inherited her parents’ estate and horse farm. For Julia, home was an unhappy place full of strict rules and forbidden rooms, and she hopes that returning might erase those…

The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor (Spoiler-free) Review

In 1986, Eddie and his friends are just kids on the verge of adolescence. They spend their days biking around their sleepy English village and looking for any taste of excitement they can get. The chalk men are their secret code: little chalk stick figures they leave for one another as messages only they can understand. But then a mysterious chalk man leads them right to a dismembered body, and nothing is ever the same.

In 2016, Eddie is fully grown and thinks he’s put his past behind him, but then he gets a letter in the mail containing a single chalk stick figure. When it turns out that his friends got the same message, they think it could be a prank–until one of them turns up dead. That’s when Eddie realizes that saving himself means finally figuring out what really happened all those years ago.

Book Review: The One

She Who Probably Does Exist

(Book Three of The Selection Series) by Kiera Cass

Processed with VSCOcam

Finally! We’ve got to know what will happen to our lead characters, America, Maxon and Aspen. After reading the first two books, I’ve got quite an idea what will happen to the story but surprisingly, Miss Kiera make a plot twist that shocked its readers.

Surely, the pure white-colored dress of America in the book cover will give us a hint that there will be a ceremony in the end. Kyaaaah!!! ♥

Here’s what I thought about “The One”:

After all the struggles she has been through, between her and the girls, between her and her maybe future father-in-law, between her and Aspen, between her and Prince Maxon. There she is, our future princess standing stronger than ever. After one of her love ones dies, (Yeah! Sad to say thou) she felt so broken (me too) but then now, she definitely know how…

Old Bones

Author Tia Lee

I absolutely LOVE the book, Old Bones!!! Schwemmer is my new favorite author! She is self-published, but the way she weaves her story is amazing.

One thing I don’t care for is the title of the story, I think she could have made a better choice there, also I don’t like the cover it is misleading. When I picked up this book I thought it was about a wolf or werewolf some something of the sort, but even though there is a wolf in the story it has a very minor part, hardly worth putting a wolf on the cover. I would have gone with a mysterious looking lake or something of that nature. 

Anyhow…Old Bones is a book filled with mystery, betrayal, romance, and suspense; a perfect combination perfectly executed. This book had me constantly wondering what would happen next and who to trust until the very end. I loved…
