Bit late as I was on holiday. Tried to get through a few spooky books for Halloween month. Didn't do too badly

My only completed book on holiday which is disappointing but I enjoyed this book. Interesting story and I like historical fiction anyway

I read the Fall of the House of Usher and Goodreads put the whole book that it is from. I felt cheeky having that many extra pages so I thought I should read the whole book. I accidentally bought the wrong book lol so I read this one too.
An interesting collection of short stories. I liked some better than others. I particularly liked the detective ones.

An interesting read on serial reader although I wouldn't call it a horror. It was weird and a bit creepy but not scary

I quite liked this. The stories were easy to read and enjoyable. The title story is the longest and then the others are very short. Some of them I would have liked to read more

I enjoyed this book. As a nurse I could relate and I liked that she had similar experiences. The last few chapters were heart breaking. I just didn't enjoy the way it was written. I find it like reading an essay with references in and that just spoilt it for me a bit. I would still recommend it though

So I've never watched the movie so I wanted to read the book first. I thought it was ok but it dragged and wasn't really anything special or different

BoleyBooks I don‘t normally rewatch movies, but that one has a magical cast and worth watching every time. 4mo
ulrichyumiodd I‘ve heard the movie is much better in this case. I haven‘t read the book, but I love the movie! 4mo
Emma3 I'll have to watch the movie then 4mo

I bought the whole series ages ago after reading I Heart New York and only just got around to reading the next one. I enjoyed this. It was cute and quirky and I like Angela coz she's relatable

I think I liked this more than her first book. It was a story that didn't try to be too happy and included the bad things which is real life. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading her third book

I loved this! I enjoyed the film but this was so much better! A lot scarier and more atmospheric! I recommend everyone to read this

RaimeyGallant The movie was pretty great. 6mo
KristenDuck Such a good book 6mo
Bookartbookmarks CR. :) 6mo
marleed I saw the movie first but having read the book much prefer the kids in the book who could negotiate their world better than their mom. But I kind of prefer Sandra Bullock‘s bad-ass approach to her character. 6mo
Emma3 @marleed yea I agree 6mo

I found this so boring but it was a short read and one of those books to tick off your tbr list

I'd heard such food reviews of this and I finally got around to reading it. I thought the writing was very nice but it was so slow and boring! I enjoyed it when I was reading it but it didn't make me rush to pick it up again (hence with it took me so long to read it) I wasn't sad to finish it and found it so long and drawn out

This one doesn't seem to be in the database but it is number 6 in the series. Again the writing is not the best but there's just something about these that keeps me reading! Full of "inspirational quotes" and quite predictable but still very cute
