This book is gory, terrifying and sexy in some parts of the novel. This book is an old classic, published in 1887 which makes older than any of the other books that I have posted or talked about on this website. This is the scariest book I have ever read and one of the best. Aimed at both genders and I give it 10 out of 10 stars. Please tell your parents you are reading this because it is a scary novel, also I would suggest that you are a confident reader to read this book as some of the words and language they use is hard to understand in some places. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did, please tell me if you loved it or hated. This book will completely change your perspective of Vampires as Bram Stoker was the man who invented the vampires and the thing about garlic, teaks, crucifixes, etc.

 

Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge

18298890Blurb: The first things to shift were the doll’s eyes, the beautiful grey green glass eyes. Slowly they swivelled, until their gaze was resting on Triss’ s face. The tiny mouth moved, opened to speak.

‘What are you doing here?’ It was uttered in tones of outrage and surprise, and in a voice as cold and musical as the clinking of cups. ‘Who do you think you are? This is my family.’

When Triss wakes up after an accident, she knows that something is very wrong. She is insatiably hungry; her sister seems scared of her and her parents whisper behind closed doors. She looks through her diary to try to remember, but the pages have been ripped out.

Soon Triss discovers that what happened to her is more strange and terrible than she could ever have imagined, and that she is quite literally not herself. In a quest find the truth she must travel into the terrifying Underbelly of the city to meet a twisted architect who has dark designs on her family – before it’s too late . . .

This is a horror novel, so if you are not into those kind of things, don’t read it! Personally, I didn’t find it very scary, but I have read a lot of scary novels, so that might be why. This has an original story line and is hard to predict what will happen next, if you love surprises, this is the book for you, however, if you don’t like creepy doll’s, DO NOT READ THIS!!! This book is mostly aimed at girls, and I give 9.5 stars out of 10.
