Genre: Horror

Review: HEX

I believe I first heard about this book from the Dutch book scene, and it intrigued me because it’s one of the few Dutch books I know that got translated into English. People called this book creepy, said they couldn’t sleep anymore after finishing and had to sleep with the lights on. I’d been wanting to read a good horror book, even though I am a big pussy, but had been severely disappointed so far. I borrowed my sister’s copy and dove straight into this book – hoping that I would finally have found the one book that would actually creep me […]

Review: Blair Witch

Back in the early 2000’s, I watched a movie called The Blair Witch Project which at that point scared me so much, I had to sleep in my sister’s room because I couldn’t get myself to make the two-step journey to my own room. I was convinced the movie was a documentary, and that the people in it had actually been murdered by the Blair Witch. (Of course, when I found out it wasn’t a real docu, years later, I was pissed). Several sequels have been made, I believe, but I only watched one of those (and it wasn’t as creepy as the […]

Review: Asylum (Asylum #1)

I guess that when Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children came out, more authors thought it would be a nice idea to publish a book with creepy/strange pictures, and a story written around them. Because I personally loved Miss P very much, but thought it wasn’t horror enough (even though I still loved it to bits), I picked up Asylum a while back, hoping it would have that horror story that I had been hoping. Asylum tells the story of Dan Crawford, a student at the NHCP, the New Hampshire College Prep a five-week summer program, who one day finds a […]

Review: Krampus

When I first saw a poster for the movie Krampus in a magazine I got from my local cinema, I thought it would be a weird Christmas-y themed horror movie like we have a Sinterklaas themed one in our country (called Sint, if anyone is curious). I didn’t pay that much attention to it, but when I was looking at movies for my December movies I want to see post, I saw Krampus sitting there, and I decided to watch the trailer. Krampus is labeled a horror comedy which to me are two of the worst categories. I am not a […]

Review: Amity

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This has not changed my opinion on the book in any way! Before reading this book, I used to think about the faction from Divergent – when I heard the word Amity. The peaceful, kind, farming faction. Now, I think of this house. This awful haunted, poisoned house. Amity is about two families – the Webb’s, with Connor, Julie, Abel and their parents, and the Holt’s, with Gwen, Luke, their parents and dog Murray. The story is told through a dual POV (Connor and Gwen), as they endure the […]

Review: Mary Hades (Mary Hades #1)

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book via Netgalley, this has not changed my opinion on the book in any way. I’d heard a lot of things about Mary Hades already and added it to my to-read list a while back. When I found it on Netgalley I immediately requested it, not at all thinking I would get accepted. But I did, and I added it to my ‘to-read in February’ list. It was the first book I started reading this month (okay I cheated, I started it on the 31st of January already), and I did enjoy it […]

Review: Please Remain Calm (This Is Not a Test #2)

In 2013 I read This Is Not a Test a book about a group of teenagers who were hiding in a school to get away from the zombies. Zombies? Yeah, I read a book about zombies, can you believe it? I once said I thought zombies were the Umbridge of mythical/supernatural creatures (ok they’re not really mythical nor supernatural but you get what I mean), and that I would avoid books, movies and TV shows about them like the plague. But I did end up reading a couple of zombie books (Warm Bodies, The Forest of Hands and Teeth, etc), and of […]

Review: Girl of Nightmares (Anna #2)

Warning, this review might have some minor spoilers for the first book in the series! After reading Anna Dressed in Blood, I was both curious and not curious at all for the sequel. I wouldn’t have minded if the story had ended with the first book, because to me it was a very good ending. But the story didn’t end there. No, there was Girl of Nightmares, the second and last book of this series, where apparently Cas was going to try to rescue Anna from wherever she got dragged into. To be honest, I was quite reluctant to read this […]
