Frozen Charlotte- Alex Bell: Book Review!

Hi Guys,

This is the 2nd installment of this seasons 'Zoella Book Club' reviews. I've been doing all of these in the past couple of months; feel free to catch up using the bar at the top. With that very short intro, lets get on with the review!

As always, I will try to keep spoilers to a minimum!

'Frozen Charlotte' is a book following a teen called Sophie. After being persuaded to use a Ouija board she tries to speak to her dead cousin, Rebecca. This results in the death of Jay (Sophie's best friends). To add to the terror, she has to go and stay with her Uncle and his creepy family. There's the scarred Cameron; Lillias, with a fear of bones; Piper is a little too good to be true; and of course, the Charlotte dolls!

This plot kept me terrified! I get scared so easily but this book took it to another level! I went through phases of fear, with some bits being just creepy and other parts making me too scared to go upstairs! I found it so engaging and wonderfully written. I've never read anything like this before - as you can guess, I'm not into horror!- but I still thought it was great.

Unfortunately, I was not able to fully read the last 50 pages. This was because I got way too scared. I'm making myself sound like a baby but I was seriously creeped out. Three seperate people got their eyes gauged out. What about that isn't disturbing?!?

Moving on to the characters, I thought that they were really well written. Their personalities were built up in layers, which really added to the suspense. Uncovering the different elements of their personalities was really chilling but so well written: I still enjoyed it!

As you can tell, I don't really have much criticism for this book. if you enjoy horror films, I think that this will be for you but if, like me, you scare easily, I might give this one a miss. That's just my opinion though so if you thought something else, tell me in the comments. Don't forget to add me to your circles so I can reach 150 followers by the 1st of February: I know we can do it!

Thanks for Reading

November's Essay...

I haven't been feeling very well this month. I took my first day of school- in a few years- on Monday because of how bad it was. Physically, I had a cold. No, I'm not one of those people! (Side note...) It always irritates me when people have a bit of a sniffly nose and then take two weeks off from school. There's just no need! My moto is: have a bit of lemsip and get over it. I'll drag myself into school practically unconscious with a bus stuck in my side and still plaster a smile onto my face. This month, however, I finally admitted there was something wrong.

A day was spent under a blanket with Gossip Girl on. In the end I put 'After Laughter' on and woke up two hours later, confused, wondering why the music had stopped. Even though I felt awful the next day (I always get massive colds!), I went back into school. That day at home did me good though because it was nice to spend some time resting and not being stressed. That's something that I don't do …

A Zillenial on the Eighties...

Now, let's throw it back to the glorious year of 2004. Shrek 2 was hitting our screens, Jeremy Clarckson was hitting Piers Morgan in the face and Maria Julia Mantilla was being crowned 'Miss World' over in China. I, a bit closer to home, was enjoying the early years of life. However, across the sea 'Bowling for Soup' were releasing '1985': a bop that I would only come to appreciate about twelve years later. The song contains references to many pop-culture focal points that I have never understood... until now! It's time for me to explore the eighties! 

First off is 'Whitesnake'. For the past few years, I've thought that 'Whitesnake' was one person (a rapper or something? I don't know!) but it turns out that they're a band! The were a British hard rock band who rose to fame in the 80s, originally formed in 1977. Another band that I believed to be a single person was 'Blondie'. My friend recently went to see them, althou…
