Hello! It’s been a long time. Well not too long, though. I know what you might be thinking but, I wasn’t feeling good the past days and as a result I took me an eternity to read House of Furies. Now I’m back and hope to end reading all the books on my fall TBR. (If possible😳).
To start let me tell you what I liked about this book:
- The Gothic ambiance.
- Found some good quotes.
- Mr. Moningside.
Now that I told you what I liked, I’ll proceed with the review.
Despite of having a very good topic on the beggining and all the Gothic ambiance surroundings, this book, for me, was too slow. The protagonist, Louisa Ditton, she made me upset, and yes, I hated her. It took me eons to finish this book but the main reason was when I started to read, I found it quite boring, but decided to give it a try.
After 100 pages, it caught my attention, but then, it started to be annoying. I don’t know if it was the slowness, but I was expecting more. It wasn’t terrifiying and I think it’s a book that can be read in any season of the year. So if you’re planning to read this “spooky” book for october, mmm, let me tell you is not that “spooky”. There is couple of disturbing images, but nothing so extraordinary.
Also I feel a little bit guilty because I’ve destroyed at least three books on this blog, and I’m not proud of myself. As an indie writer I know the struggle of writing a book and it is sad when someone doesn’t like what you wrote. But gosh! Is my opinion. My experience while reading a story, and I would be a liar if I say I loved the story when that doesn’t really happened! 🤷♀️
Anyway, here are the quotes:
“Even when the world is crashing down around my ears, you find a way to make it easier.”
“Misfortune find us all. The only difference is when and how you resolve to face it.”
“The grim reality we must all face is that the dark and different and strange among us us face a kind of exile.”
In other news, this blog turns a year in november! WUT!! 😱 I think I have to do something special ☺️ to celebrate!
