Review: The Lie Tree 5/5 (1)

Review: I stumbled upon The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge in a second-hand book store while browsing for an undervalued books to add to my never-ending home library(most books there are still waiting to be read, if you must know but that’s another story). What grabbed my attention was the weird cover and the mystery-infused summary. And that was just the tip of the iceberg.

When I first opened the book I was on the defense since I read it is a children’s book and I wanted something exciting, something deep and intelligent, something that would make my mind work rather than tell me things as they are. And thank God, or rather thank Frances Hardinge, I got all of that and more.

Review: The Mist 3/5 (2)
All , Horror , Thriller / December 7, 2017

Review: For those who don’t know, The Mist is a horror novella by the king of horror stories as they call him, Stephen King. Okay, maybe they don’t actually call him that but we have to admit that when we think of horror books the first name that comes to mind along with Lovecraft, Shelly and other personal favorites is Stephen King.

The Mist is a story about a man, David Drayton, whose life turns into a living nightmare, his worst fears coming to life when his home town, Bridgton, Maine, is drown in a bizarre, unnatural mist.
