Twilight.

Yeah I know I’m super late to this but I just had to read it at least since I never read anything about the books or watched any movie so this comes from the point of view of a 22 year old who doesn’t know almost anything about Twilight.

Rating: 2.8/5.

The book didn’t have a bad start. I went with the flow up until she started to get close to Edward and it went kinda downhill from that. Her brain must have melted or something. What I find annoying is how awkward Bella is throughout the book, I couldn’t get over it.
I also thought it was weird how kinda hateful she was towards Edward and how friendly she was with Jacob later on and a few chapters later she is suddenly super friendly with Edward and very open about her feelings and she starts to be distant towards Jacob with no explanation or anything. She almost died 3 times in 2 months which was also stupid. She also trips and falls too much!
There is no character development so far and I also hated the fact that she broke her lovely dad’s heart over a stupid plan to escape James. She also believes Edward is a god and never questions him which is pretty dumb.

One thing I liked about this book was Edward. I liked him more than I thought I would. He’s a sweetheart and his family is also awesome and welcoming which I didn’t expect.
I believe the plot was badly written and there were so many little bad details about it but even tho’ it’s a hated book generally, I don’t regret reading it and I will surely read the rest of them.

“How I wish you were fear”

Possibly one of the best thrillers, Stephen King’s The Shining!

Rating: 5/5 (I don’t even know if it’s necessary to mention this).

Although King hates the movie version of Kubrick, the movie is really appreciated by a lot of people but anyways, we’re not here to talk about the movie (but you should watch it if you haven’t until now).

King is funny and laid back and you can feel that through his writing. There’s a relaxed way of relating stories that immediately induces the reader in the same state. That’s pretty much how I was like when I started reading the book (too bad I read it after I’ve seen the movie a few times).

He creates suspsense without the need of some ghosts and different creepy creatures. He just has a Grudge (evil presence tied to a location) and the enemy of it is the kid that has “the shining” and apparently he is not the only one.

The thing that makes Jack such an evil man is not the hotel’s Grudge. He’s been a bad person even before that if you will pay attention to why he’s been fired from his job and the time when he wanted to hit Wendy and Danny but had to drive around so he can calm down. After the hotel experience and being controlled by that presence, nothing is the same anymore. And if you thought that it ends there at the hotel, there’s also a sequel that I’m gonna write about.
