Reviews For Books


This page is dedicated to book lovers like me. So grab a cup of tea (Or coffee), sit down and read reviews for books that I have personally read. You never know, you may find a book that you would like to add to your list to read. Without further ado, lets jump straight in!

The Woman In Black

By Susan Hill

I was brought this book by my brother for Christmas last year.  I remember watching the film years ago when I was a teenager (1989 film) and it gave me nightmares for weeks. So I decided to give it a read. At first, I must admit that I could not get into it and I was a little confused. That was until I realised that the beginning of the story was based in the present tense of his life and he was reminiscing about what events had happened to him which made him change. After I got past that part of the book and started reading into the second chapter, I couldn’t put it down and read it within two days. If you want a traditional British haunting then this book is the right one for you. The author (Susan Hill) really describes the story in full detail, as if you were the main character yourself (Which you wouldn’t want to be from the horrific spirit that haunted him.) This book I would definitely give 5 stars. Give it a read and comment down below what you think.

The Magic

By Rhonda Byrne

Now, this book was a very different read to what I normally buy. But after a lot of good reviews about this book, I decided to give it a read. This is not a fiction book, its based on gratitude and positive energy (The Law Of Attraction). I was very intrigued, so I kept on reading. There is a lot of good factual and non- factual information inside and if you are looking for a pick-me-up then this book is the one for you. ‘The Magic’ has opened up my eyes and has made me see life in an entirely different way (A good way). Rhonda has gathered all the information she could find on gratitude (Past and Present) and has written it down in a book for everyone to read. I do recommend this book if you want to change your life for the better (It certainly has done for me). I would give this book 4 stars.

If you would like your story or book to be reviewed then please contact the website from the form and you will be contacted back. (Free Of Charge for your work to be reviewed)

The more you promote your book, the more it can be read by book lovers like me. So I have decided to set this page up on ‘StoriesThatSpook’ to help aspiring authors with getting their material read.

A book review will be uploaded either every couple of weeks or every month, (depending on time scale).

The Edgar Allan Poe Collection

Edgar Allan Poe

This is one of my favorite books, given to me by a very good friend of mine. This book is a collection of short stories, written by ‘The king of short stories’ (Edgar Allan Poe). It’s a very big book, so it will take a while to read through, but it is very much worth it. The writing style is quite outdated (Old English) but you can still understand it. The stories have been well written and very well visualized. If you like history with a mix of horror, then Edgar is your author! Although I don’t normally read a book like this, I have enjoyed it a lot. It has more of a sentimental value to me, due to being brought for me by a close friend.  I would give the writing style a 3 out of 5 stars (Only because at times it can be quite hard to understand) and the overall imaginative structure of the book a 5 out of 5 stars.
