Review of Nightbooks by J.A. White

Nightbooks by J.A. White is about a boy named Alex who got captured by a witch and her magical apartment. Alex’s only way of survival is to write scary stories and read them to the witch every night.

There are a few strange things going on in the book, like the fact that the apartment is alive or that the apartment creates earthquakes when it doesn’t get a story. The question is why are these things happening and may it be a way for Alex and the other captive, Yasmin to escape?

Alex is supposed to read a story every night, but soon he’ll run out of stories because of his writers block and the fact that he spends his days trying to find a way out of the apartment instead of writing.

Believe it or not, but Nightbooks was actually the very first fantasy/horror book I’ve read and I am not disappointed at all! The book held my attention from the very start, and I was enthralled throughout the book. I am most definitely hooked!

I was mesmerised by the writing style, and I wouldn’t have to think twice to read one of his books again. He had captivated me inside of his book as Alex was captivated in the apartment and he had me begging myself to read “just another page” or as other people know it, another chapter, haha.

What I liked most about the book was the main character’s back story. I felt that it was very realistic and that it might have been the same with any other kid if they were in the same situation. I actually have a friend who writes horror/fantasy essays and he’s quite unpopular for it just because he is misunderstood.

I can’t say that there was actually something I disliked about the book, and I think that says a lot about the book.

It was written perfectly, and I would definitely recommend this book to not only children, but also to grown-ups who are fans of horror or fantasy books.

I do however not recommend this to those of you who aren’t fans of horror and/or fantasy, although if you haven’t read the genre then try it out, you might just like it!

I really enjoyed reading this book and therefore I rate it 4.2 out of 5 stars. I can promise you that you won’t be disappointed in reading Nightbooks by J.A. White.
