As they do. But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting. He’s been expecting the one from his nightmare, the nightmare he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming. . . .
This monster, though, is something different. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor.
It wants the truth.
Patrick Ness spins a tale from the final story idea of Siobhan Dowd, whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself. Darkly mischievous and painfully funny, A Monster Calls is an extraordinarily moving novel about coming to terms with loss from two of our finest writers for young adults.
|I'm really unsure of what to give this book!? It was a heartfelt, moving read but not at all aa I expected. It wasnt scary at all, it was more sad then anything. And even though it's supposed to be YA, it seemed more middlegrade to me.

The monster was not at all scary though he was wise which I liked!
I hated the ending, it was kind of a "Cliffhanger" in a way but it really wasn't. I don't know the ending was kind of implied rather than said directly in black and white and that did annoy me a bit.
I think Im going to give this book 3.5 stars because I DID enjoy it and would recommend it as a nice quick read, also there are illustations throughout the book which is always a plus.
I would recommend borrowing this book from the library because it really isnt worth the money but is still worth a read if that makes any sense?

Beatrice "Tris" Prior has reached the fateful age of sixteen, the stage at which teenagers in Veronica Roth's dystopian Chicago must select which of five factions to join for life. Each faction represents a virtue: Candor, Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity, and Erudite. To the surprise of herself and her selfless Abnegation family, she chooses Dauntless, the path of courage. Her choice exposes her to the demanding, violent initiation rites of this group, but it also threatens to expose a personal secret that could place in mortal danger. Veronica Roth's young adult Divergent trilogy launches with a captivating adventure about love and loyalty playing out under most extreme circumstances.
Ok, So this book was SUPER hyped up and I was very dubious (is that even how it's spelt?!?) about reading it! Also the cover was a turn off for me and stopped me from buying it, not to mention the length of the book. I'm a girl who reads 300 page books MAX and this book had a whopping 487? (I think that's the amount lol) pages! INSANE!
It did not dissapoint me though. The hype was right, which I rarely say, and this book was FANTASTIC!
I love the main character Beatrice/Tris and thought she was so relatable and I almost always agreed with her point of view and related to her. Another character I just FELL IN LOVE WITH was Four! He just seemed so handsome and dark and sexy and as the book went on I was not disappointed with him, in fact I loved him even more than the previous chapter until by the end of the book I wanted to run away with him, get married in vegas and give birth to his children! Yes I know!
I loved the idea of "factions" and it seemed really realistic in a weird way. I can actually imagine that happening in like 100/200 years time. I had never reaad a dystopian of sorts and I was soo impressed.
This book is just toooo good for words and I give it 1 million stars! It's my new favourite book EVER!
See my review by going to my youtube page. HalfBloodPRincessVW :)
So the book is about a girl named Mia, her family decided to go on a nice drive and end up in a car accident which leaves Mia in a coma. She is kind of in an out of body experience state and can see and hear everything going on around her. Throughout the book, there are "flashbacks" of sorts about her life previous to that point.
Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! The saddest yet sweetest book I have ever read! I am speechless when it comes to this book. Words cant explain how great this read was just please check it out for yourself! Watch my video on youtube to hear and see how much I enjoyed this! Http://www.youtube.com/HalfBloodPRincess... IT'sJUST AWESOME!
I loved all the characters and found every single one of them relatable and awesome. She seemed to have such a nice life and to have it all slip away was what was soo sad! The ending did however frustrate me a little as it was a cliffhanger but luckily there is a second book, (Where she went) which is a sequel and should reveal what happened.
It was such a moving book and it made me cry and not many things do that!!
Sophie Mercer is a witch. Something she though was innocent and a friendly gesture landed her in Hecate, Hex, hall. A school for bad witches, warlocks, shapeshifters and faeries. Join her on this crazy adventure!
5 star book. Absoletely amazing. Really good writing and really good plot. I liked that it was in first person and that you really got to know Sophie Mercer and that the main character was so funny in places. The book was hilarious and words really cant sum it up. Excellent book!
The book starts of when Janie, the main character, is eight. She mysteriously and unknowingly gets sucked into a man on the train's dream and since then whenever anyone is sleeping around her she sees their dreams and their nightmares. I dont want to say much else about the book because I dont want to ruin it, but she does meet a boy so yes it is a Paranormal romance! My favourite kind!
The book was written in long chapters but with a break every few pages when the day changed.
I would one hundred percent recommend this book to anyone. I think you would definitely love this read.
5/5 stars :D
(PIC TO COME!)
This book gets 5/5 stars. It was so good. I say this about every book it seems, but I have to say this is my favourite book I've read this year! It was soo amazing.
So there is a group of 5 best friends, Aria, Emily, Hanna, Spencer and Alison. Alison goes missing one night and the friends are getting weird texts from a mysterious A. They all have their secrets. Aria is hooking up with her english teacher, Hanna is stealing and using unhealthy habits to stay beuatiful and Spencer is stealing her sister's boyfriend. Emily is falling in love with her new best friend, that happens to be a girl. And A is telling all their secrets and causing trouble in their lives.
I really enjoyed the writing style of this book. I thought Sara Shepard did an excellent job in really portraying the main characters. The book just zippped by but not in a bad way. I got through 25 chapters in one go because it was just that good. Although I must say it did take me a few chapters to get into it. There is drama right from the begining though and it keeps you reading.
I highly recommend reading this book :)
