    Enchanted Book Nook Review

    My Review: What is your worst nightmare? Ivy, Parker, Garth, Natalie, Shayla, Taylor, and Frankie sent in essays to the Nightmare Elf in hopes of meeting the great horror director Justin Blake. But first, they must face their worst nightmares, and things become deadly. This was an okay book. It I don’t know I expected when I started reading it, but this wasn’t it. The entire book read like a horror movie (which I love those don’t get me wrong), but everything seemed so impersonal. You don’t get to know any of the characters at all or see any type of back story or growth (which you actually do get from some horror movies). Ivy, is the only character you get to know on some level, she’s almost the main character if you will. But there’s so much mystery surrounding her and everyone else, I didn’t feel as if I connected at all to even her. Once the characters died, that was it, nothing more is heard from them. Then, the flow of the book just didn’t seem right. Typically, I’m a fan of books that switch to different POV’s with each chapter. However, with this book, it didn’t feel right. None of the chapters seemed to follow a pattern, like Ivy, Parker, Frankie, Shayla, Garth, Natalie, in the same order each and every time. Instead, the order would change up, maybe it’s my OCD that didn’t care for it. But it was very difficult to remember who was who with all the different POVs and none of them following an order. I give props that this book touched on subjects such as body image issues, self harm, etc. Unfortunately, nothing that addresses those subjects ends well. I’m undecided if I actually want to continue this series. On the one hand, I am curious to find out more about the man who murdered Ivy’s parents (if it is who I think it could be), and to get Taylor involved, and have some questions (hopefully) answered there. But then again, I could really take it or leave it. The story was not so compelling that I have to get my hands on the next book. Plus, I really hate to waste more money on this series if I’m not totally in love with it. Positive Elements: Ivy is on a quest to heal herself, and learn from horror movie fans. Negative Elements: Natalie and her brother Harris are the result of an affair, an their parents treat Natalie terrible. Natalie up and left without telling anyone were she was, prompting everyone in her family to be extremely mad with her. Garth has an extremely dark personality, he’s super obsessed with blood e.g. he loves to sniff and/or touch people and tell them what blood type they are (this could disturb certain readers), or when he asks his roommate what color blood is, and asks him if he’s ever cut himself just to watch it bleed (again can be disturbing to some readers). Garth asks his roommate if he (Garth) can cut his roommate open to see what color his blood is. Garth has killed animals in the past, and is very proud of that. Garth and Shayla, and Ivy Parker spend the night together, although not much happens. You have your swear words such as a**, s***. Spiritual Elements: Ivy’s foster parents used to be hippies and have named all of their children after something found in nature. It was mentioned that Natalie volunteers at her local church. Harris says a prayer of Natalie. Shayla is haunted by her deceased best friend . God’s name is misused throughout the book. Other Thoughts: Ivy’s parent’s killer, plays musical scores from famous horror movies such as Halloween, that’s pretty awesome it’s my favorite horror film, and it was nice to see a nod to it.
