After watching some booktube videos (at this time of a year, booktube is full of horror and spooky books recommendations and TBRs), I was in a mood for some horror and spooky read.
Since horror novels are something I read so rarely that I don’t even know which books are good and which ones are new, I decided I would just reread a book that made me shit my pants when I was 15.
It is also one of my all-time favorite books for the same reason – that book woke up emotions I wasn’t even awared I had in me.

Good thing is I didn’t shit my pants this time. As a matter of fact, I wasn’t even scared, but I appreciated parts that used to scare me when I was young(er).

Peter, Peter, Peter!!


Not so good thing is that now when I reread it with more experienced mind of a reader, I saw some flaws I was blind to before (like how some scenes were illogical and some proofs couldn’t be proven ( SPOILER ALERT!!! Like that reporter said that House of forgoten makes people forget themselves and in the end be forgotten by everybody else, but if that was true, how could anyone write that article, if no one remembered those people in the first place? )

So yeah, my flawless book wasn’t perfect after all.
But, because it is still one of my all time favorite books and I still love it to bits, I am not changing my rating! 5 stars it is!!!

    1. I love watching horror movies, but horror books are not my go to genre. It’s not like I have anything against – I don’t. I think it’s because I don’t have too many knowledge about what books are good and what books are new and hot, and I have those kind of informations about other genres so I tend to read what I’ve heard something about before or I know the author…

      1. Do you have goodreads account? I usually see if a book has high ratings and good reviews then I will want to read it. Other bloggers said they liked Stephen King for horror books.

      2. Yes, I have! I actually like Goodreads more then blogs (but don’t tell anyone! 😉 ).
        Plus, I own Bags of Bones (or sth like that) by King but I never have an urge to read it… Someday… that’s what I usually tell myself…

    1. Oh, I feel like you’d be brave enough too if you read this one!
      Oh, I always like to see how people read seasonal. I like to believe I’m also one of seasonal readers, but the truth is I’m not. I like to mix it all! 😀
