Metro 2034 by Dmitry Glukhovsky

Metro 2034 by Dmitry Glukhovsky My rating: 2 of 5 stars I'm so disappointed. I liked the setting of Metro, I still do, but Metro 2034 didn't live up at all to what Metro 2033 was. Where do I start? Metro 2033 might have been a bit on the slow side, but this was was... Continue Reading →

Fed by Mira Grant

Fed by Mira Grant My rating: 2 of 5 stars This is basically a different ending for book Feed. It's definitely not anywhere near as good as the ending the author went with, and you should definitely not read this if you haven't read Feed first. View all my reviews

Skeleton Crew by Stephen King

Skeleton Crew by Stephen King My rating: 2 of 5 stars The Spanish Edition by Sudamericana of "Skeleton Crew" was actually split in (at least) three books... so I will review them individually, even tho I switched to the 'full' edition.One was "Historias Fantasticas", of about 200ish pages, which I hated (originally rated it just...

Apartment 16 by Adam Nevill

Apartment 16 by Adam Nevill My rating: 2 of 5 stars First, why, why, WHY could she not just have been called APRIL instead? Why? With that special snowflake out of the way, the book was ok, kinda boring, not overly scary, nothing overly new either: An artist obsessed with gross/grotesque/gorey stuff, some creepy apartment...
