bookshelves: ya, horror-ish, read-in-2011
Read from January 16 to 19, 2011 — I own a copy

3.5 stars. It was fun to read but I would have like this much more if I'd been at least 10 years younger. I don't have a lot to say about this book to be honest.

Some scenes in the book are really trying to gross you out and I wonder if anything will happen with Aaron.

It was good enough to make me want to find out what's next.

Kim I've seen a lot of 'OMFGCREEPY' comments, so let me get back to you on that. It looks promising. I will try to give you a good idea of how 'bad' it is.

Probably only if you have arachnophobia. I've only read the first one, though;)

Balls.


Lora Kim, I apologize if this is a stupid question, but how does "balls" apply to what I said? (Just wondering . . .)

Kim I'm scared of spiders. And by scared I mean call-the-fire-brigade-scared.

(of course it's not a stupid question)


Lora Oh! Good luck with this one, then! I'm not too scared of spiders (at least not as much as I used to be;), but I found this one pretty creepy. (o_O)

Oooh, I forgot to tell you! Last night, when we got back to the hotel there was a monster spider sitting in the toilet in my bathroom O_o But thanks to my good old friend Mr. Liquor I was able to surpress my sudden need to call the reception and scream for help ^^

Kim Please tell me you killed it/drowned it/flushed it/set it on fire?

Usually I'm the target, but maybe that law only counts in Belgium, and you are the lucky German girl.

Brrrrr...

Jessica I flushed it :D

Kim That's my girl!

Just remember, my deodorant spray and my lighter are always ready for you.


message 12: by Jen (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jen Kim, yeah. Spiders are rather prominent in this book. I hope you like it though. Very Goosebump-y. Mindless fun!


message 13: by ~Tina~ (new)

~Tina~ Spiders? Why does it always have to be spiders!


message 14: by ~Tina~ (new)

~Tina~ Aww screw it! I'm gonna try this one out! Thanks for the review!


message 15: by Kim (new) - rated it 3 stars

Kim It wasn't much of a review Tina, but thanks anyway =)

Um... happy-ish... reading.
