The most memorable element for me was the changes in the narration — from Scotty (up to you to figure out who this is in the first few chapters of the book)

Books I’ve Read In December 2020

The year is finally over. I want to say “Thank God” because I’m still alive. I haven’t been as productive as I want to be but hey. Time not sick is time well spent, as said by Julie Nolke. Whenever I didn’t feel like doing anything during the past year, I’ll look around my room…

Hollow City

Aside from the Harry Potter series, Ransom Riggs’s books are my favorite fantasy novels. I like it when fantasy stories are weaved into reality. I also like London, their culture, their weather. Before I read this book series, I already know about the old photographs exhibited in the novels. I research about them. I am…

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

I regret watching the film before reading this book, as it completely destroyed the ending for me. I like this kind of storytelling, one that will keep you…

The Bleakly Manor

This has got to be one of my favorite feel good stories ever. I finished this in a little more than a day. It has a love story, goth theme, moral lessons, mystery, murder, everything I love about the gothic novels and more. Also, it’s been a while since I liked a love story. This…

The Good House

The book is about a 60-year old alcoholic woman who is very successful in her business but wants to be loved by someone, by her children. She wants to be remembered by her grandson. She is smart, cunning, funny, and unapologetic. She often says ignorant haphazard comments about things and brush it off saying, “It’s…
