What to say... This book utterly blew me away! This was possibly the best book I have read all year so far and I am honestly having trouble keeping the excitement inside of me, writing this review, to stop me from leaping into the air! Words can simply not explain how I feel about this book. It was such a beautiful, gorgeous deadly book! Anna dressed in blood will chill you to the bone but leave you wanting so much more. This book is so exquisite and fantastic that my nose was nested in the pages from start to finish. It gave me a gruesome thrill r…

CREEPOVER: TRUTH OR DARE - REVIEW - P.J. NIGHT

Book: Creepover: Truth or Dare
Author: PJ Night
Publisher: ATOM
ISBN: 9781907411236
Rating: B+


During a round of Truth or Dare, Abby Miller confesses her crush on Jake Chilson. The only people who know her secret are her friends at the sleepover - and whoever sent her a text message in the middle of the night warning her to stay away from Jake...or else! But Abby isn't going to stay away from Jake, especially not after he asks her to the school dance. As the night of the dance comes closer, some very creepy things start happening to Abby. Someone definitely wants to keep her away from Jake. Is it a jealous classmate or, as Abby begins to suspect, could it be a ghost?


I like books like this because I always feel that a slight breath of fresh air when reading so much of the Genre that I do! They are always short, snappy and really light! Not to heavy or deep, and never have too much of a big plot. Simple, quick easy to follow and most definitely a fantastic read.


As for this one I loved it…

Rating: A


Riley has made a bargain with Heaven, and now they've come to collect. Lucifer's finest are ruling the streets and it seems that Armageddon might be even closer than Riley imagined. But with her soul and her heart in play it's all she can do to keep herself alive, let alone save the world. Riley's not afraid of kicking some major demon butt, but when it comes to a battle between Heaven and Hell, she might need a little help ...



What did I think of this? Now I'm going to be entirely honest and say I'm not quite sure what happened here. The book was brilliant and all and I really loved it but Forsaken topped Forbidden and I was expecting this to do the same. I guess this had a lot going on but I focused more on bonds and relationships and for me the action just wan't there.... The novel was amazing though. If I put into context as a reviewer, avoiding my personal opinion ti was ex…
