Ring by Koji Suzuki

Genre:Thiller / Horror

Format: Hardcover

Pages: 286

Published April 25, 2004

Read the novel that spawned blockbuster horror films on both sides of the pacific. This is about ajournalist named Asakawa that hears of the  mysteries death of four teenagers that died on the same day at the same time. He is determined that this is some kind of virus. That is until he watches a mysterious VHS tape. Now he has seven days to figure out the curse of the video tape or he dies. This book was very good. It was different from the movie and it was very creepy. My favorite scene was when Sadako was watching T.V. and a boy walked in and tried to turn on a lamp and  it wasn't plugged in and that's when he noticed that the T.V. wasn't plugged in either. This book was a page turner and is a fast paced thiller. If you like horror novels try this one. It is sure to scare your pants off. Suzuki is also known as the "Stephen King of Japan!"

A darker shade of magic series

I couldn't find a trailer for this book. But here is a summary of the series.

Published February 21, 2017

Witness the fate of beloved heroes--and enemies. The balance of power has finally tipped... Who will crumble? Who will rise? Who will take control?

This is the third book in the darker shade of magice series. This book starts where the second book left off. Kell gets rescued by Lila Bard from Holland in Black London. There is thus evil darkness that comes to Red London and Kell, Rhy, Alucard, Lila and eventually Holland has to learn how to get rid of it. I liked this book. It was action packed and many characters died. My favorite part was when Rhy tried to protect his mother from Osaron, who want Red London to crumble and want to rule it as well. I also loved how Red London was destroyed. This book was dark but, It was fun as well. Rhys' character becomes very strong. I listened to this on audible and I didn't like how their where two voices. One Male and one female. This book is not told in first person. It only needed to be narratied by one person. This distracted me and caused me to rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

I liked this fun novel. This is also a coming of age novel;. I loved Neil Gaiman's writing style. My favorite character was the cat. He was very funny and sarcatic. He also didn't have a name. I loved the other mother. she was very evil and sinister. She also would control the other father and the other neighbors as well. I rated this book a 4 out of 5.

Tark finds out Kagura is missing, they (Callie, Tark & Okiku) must solve the mystery of her disappearance. This leads them to Aokigahara Forest, where there is a deserted city.

Format: Audiobook

pages: 138

Published December 1, 2001

This book is about a lawyer named Arther Kipps,  who came to London to attend the funeral of Mrs. Alice Drablow of Eel Marsh house. This book is a ghost story and a mystery about a mysterious woman in black. Arther Kipps starts settling in the Eel Marsh house and discover a supernatural figure, a woman in black. she haunts him and she feeds on children of the village. This is a slow read for me. The character Arthur enters the Eel Marsh house and experinces supernatuaral things. For example a rocking chair that rocks  by itself, a child's scream in the fog, and much more. I rated this a low rating because of the sad ending. The ending was very heart breaking.

Something is out there, Something terrfying that must not be seen . One glimpse of it, and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where is came from.

This book is about a family who lives in an abandoned house near the river and they have to travel beyond the river to find a safe place to live the catch is they are blindfolded. I loved this book. It had so many creepy scenes and it creates imagination. My favorite scene was about  Malorie's son and how he was getting water from the well and thought he could hear something in the well. He feels the well and  he feels inside the pail to see if anything is in the well. Then he hears footsteps behind him and he runs toward the house. The story is well written and I loved the twist at the end. The ending left an uneasy feeling and it wasn't a happy feel good ending. My favorite character was Malorie. I could relate to her. Another interesting thing about the book was what Malorie called her son and daughter. She refered to them as boy and girl. Malorie was also dealing was pregnancy.

Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sister were murdered and she survived and testified that Ben, her brother was the killer. Tweenty-five years later, The Kill Club believe Ben is not the killer and Libby starts investagating. This book was great! I loved this book. I loved the mystery and trying to figure out who murdered the whole family. We got three perspectives Libby,Ben and Patty ( the mom). My favorite character was Ben "the outcast". He was afraid of everything and could not face situations. The twist was unexpected and the ending was a happy one. This book is dark. It deals with murder, rape and has discusting imagey. I recommend this book for fans of dark twistly murders. I rated this a 5 out of 5.

This book is about 4 residents that are staying in a haunted home that got turned in a apartment. The residents start seeing supernatal beings. I liked this story. It was creepy and kept getting creepier. It has an interesting twist. I listened to this drom the library and the first disc kept skipping, so I didn't listen to the whole thing. My favorite scene was the T.V. scene. Where the T.V. starts talking to the residents. My favorite character was the boy Winnie. He always wished he was a hero. There is also a character named Mickey who was a killer and thought everything was sexy. There is also a murder that happens in the house and the police is investaging it. This book had weird scene and was more science fiction then horror. I rated this a 4 out of 5. If you like science fiction you will like this book.

This is the fouth book in the Percy Jackson series. This is about the labyrinth and how Krono is using it to invade Camp half blood. Annabeth and company are sent into the labyrinth to find the creator and the string so they can find Luke and stop Krono and his army from invading camp. I liked this book. This book introduces more characters and gods, like Briares, the hundred handed one. We meet more Gods like,Hera and Janus. My favorite scene was Nico feeding the grave coke and Mcdonalds happy meals to wake up the dead. I would love to wake up to that. Percy and Annabeth take an interest in each other. My favorite new character is the huge friendly hellhound named "Mrs. O' Leary". Riordan is very funny and smart. I recommend this for 12 year olds and up. I rated this a 4 out of 5. A solid read.

The Animorphs book trailer

This is an interesting series. Pick it up.

The Invasion By K.A. Applegate (animorphs,1)

Genre:Science fiction

Format: Paperback


Published June 1, 1996

We can't tell you who we are or where we live. It's too risky and we've got to be careful. But everyone is in danger. Yeah. Even you.

This is the first book in the Animorphs series. One day five kids: Rachel,Cassie, Jake, Tobias, and Marco are walking home from the mall and they see a spaceship. They meet an alien that is injured and he gives them the ability to morph into animals. Why are these aliens here? Because they are trying to save us from the Yeeks; an alien that feeds off of living creatures preferably humans. This was very action packed and even though it was short, it has a lot of information that was packed in the book. There was less character development in this first book but, I hope the characters grow and improve. I recommend this book to people who don't like to read because it is short and people who love Alien invasion stories. I rated this book a 4 out of 5.

Melville, New Jersey, is the perfect place to have a pretty medicre life for like seventy years and then die. In fact, that might be on the WELCOME TO MELVILLE sign you see when you get off the turnpike at Exit 6A, right above POPULATION: 5,500 EMPTY FUNYUNS BAGS, 1 BORED JEWISH GIRL.

This is a coming of age novel about a girl named Scarlett.She is obsessed with a show "Lycanthrope High" and writes fanfiction about it.She also has a crush on Gideon, who has known her since elementary school. I have to be honest at first I didn't like this book. Scarlett was worred about petty things like getting a boyfriend and she was also jealous of a "Popular" girl named Ashley. Scarlett is friends with Avery and Ruth. Avery does Scarletts' homework. UHH! Ruth is an old woman who likes to smoke weed. By the middle of the book my opinions change. Scarlett's dad hurt her mom and scarlett stands up for her. This is when the book gets way better. This book deals with death, freindship, love and is filled with teenage trops. I rated this book a 4 out of 5 stars because it does have a powerful message.
