Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo

Image
The Hunchback of Notre-Dame or its original title Notre-Dame de Paris. Actually, I speak French so that's why I prefer the original title. The first reminds me of the animated film which is too far from the reality. It's made for children so it's rather false because... well, death's not a good thing for little kids to watch. However, a Victor Hugo novel isn't appropriate for young at all. His style of writing is very... complicated and hard to perceive. Maybe his books are difficult even for adults, what about young people. Well, I've read this book as a teen at the age of 15 maybe? Because I wanted to and I've always been strong mentally and I love to challenge myself. And Hugo's books are really a challenge.   I can say no bad thing about one of the best authors of all time. I think his works are much better than those in the 10th Grade Literature classes that corresponds to the age in which he lived. That's the 10th grade in Bulgaria and we hav…

A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

Image
Yeah, I've been away for two months or three? That's not good for my blog, not at all. But I'd had exams and coursework to do, and going home... I was very busy. Well, it's the new year so new beginning and I'll do my best to be at least regular and have several posts monthly. It's a shame to abandon my blog in such a way! Okay, now about the review.

  The book captivated me from the very beginning. First, I had seen the movie and I've never actually watched it, but it was enough for me to read the book. It is really small and is read extremely fast but is meaningful and captivating enough. I chose this cover because it's so... nice and simple. The Bulgarian is the same and I just love it.   Nicholas Sparks is another favourite author of mine. He's a real classic, and a lot of his books are screened and that's just commendable. I can think of a dozen names that have movies and it's always with famous actors such as Shane West, Miley Cyrus, …

The Mozart Conspiracy by Scott Mariani

Image
  SECOND BOOK OF "BEN HOPE"

  Absolutely in the spirit of the first book. Scott Mariani dives us in another death hunt where a secret society rules underhand and doesn't like... obstacles. That usually means an intruder or witness who must be taken care of(and we all know how this kind of people deal with "obstacles").
  There're at least three different covers! But I think this one is the best, it suits the series. I like the idea of the partly transparent background, it's light and nice. Besides, there'are different elements in the whole image as the running man, the eye, the cloaked figure. It makes sense and it looks good - what else can I want?
It looks like there's a new mystery for Ben Hope to solve but this time is the death of a close friend. Oliver Llewellyn has died in a very ridiculous incident back in January. Yet, neither detective Marcus Kinski nor Ben Hope thinks it's an incident at all.
I'm always impressed how the author…

The Darkest Craving

“What’s my sign? Cancer.”
- Torin, Lord of the Underworld

  Torin's demon for him is like a curse because he has the worst of all others - Disease. Every time he touches someone, he causes illness and death, there may even be a world outbreak. He was the cause of the Black Death * in the Middle Ages because he touched a peasant girl.
  Now, I really like this cover. Gray is very good for the background, and the man looks great. Also made with white hair because Torin itself has white hair and green eyes, a very interesting combination in my opinion. And the gloves in the hand are also in full resemblance to those he usually wear to not touch anyone.
  Before I read the book about him, he was one of my favourites because of his unusual appearance, but after that I lost i…

The Darkest Seduction

“I’ve been told I’m almost as dangerous as a tsunami.”
- Kane, Lord of the Underworld

“I’ve been told I’m a tsunami.”
- Josephina Aisling

Kane may have one of the most terrible demons - Disaster. With him, he has no contact, and he is more than evil, he is a monster. It can cause any disasters, global catastrophes such as earthquakes, floods, and so on. Unlike the other Lords who communicate with their demons, Kane has never done it with his own, because it is purely IMPOSSIBLE.
  This is the third yellow cover. While the others were a little lighter, that's pretty sparkling yellow. I like the yellow, but only if it is a bright and fresh lemon colour, and this one is not that far.   When he falls in love with Josephine and goes to her world to save her from her own royal family, the demon doe…

The Darkest Surrender

  At first, I liked Paris quite a lot, but then I lost interest in him. He was a playboy and a female man, and I loved him much until he fell in love with a human woman who was by chance Hunter and served as Bait for him to be captured but was murdered lately. And I totally lost interest in his otherwise so interesting picture before.
  The cover is attractive, there is no dispute. It is entirely up to the title, but it is not really the case. The book tells only how Paris finds and frees her from the place where Cronus holds her, and that is far from seductive. But the black background and these wings in the back look very good.
  Because Paris possesses Promiscuity, he needs every day to be with a different woman, otherwise, his demon weakens, hence himself. And it's not able to be the same twice, she no longer …
