My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Wow oh wow! This book takes it’s reader on a fantastical journey through a special made up world.
I must start off by completely talking about this cover. The cover is gorgeous and just looking at it gives you zero clues as to what takes place on the inside of this book of awesome! Second, I must talk about Simon! I loved him! Probably because he was made up of a little tiny bit of bad boy. I really enjoyed how he puts himself on the line without another thought to save those important to him. Thirdly, the world that was created by the author was beautiful. The reader is able to jump right in and get a feel for everything surrounding the characters. Who wouldn’t want to go play in another world for a while and live out all of their fantasies?
What I was not crazy about? The romance:( Everyone knows that I need to have a good romance in my books. Don’t get me wrong, there was some romance but I felt like I was on a roller coaster. At some points, it was really high and others…nonexistent.
If you are an avid lover of fantasy reads that transport you into a whole different dimension OR are a complete gamer….than you must get your hands on this book! It will not disappoint!
About the authors
New York Times bestselling author Jason Segel used to have nightmares just like Charlie, and just like Charlie, he’s learned that the things we’re most afraid of are the things that can make us strong…if we’re brave enough to face them. Jason likes acting, writing, making music, and hanging out with his friends. Sometimes he writes movies. Sometimes he writes songs for movies. Sometimes he stars in those movies and sings those songs. You might know him from The Muppets and Despicable Me. Your parents might know him from other stuff. Nightmares! is his first novel..
I write books.
Some of my books are what librarians call middle grade. (Kiki Strike, Nightmares!)
Some should be kept away from small children and people with weak stomachs. (How to Lead a Life of Crime, The Eternal Ones, Otherworld)
I write some books with Jason Segel.
I’ve written quite a few books on my own.
I’m an Aquarius.
My favorite food is cauliflower. (No joke.)
I will eat almost anything. And I’m weirdly proud of it.
I believe New York City is the most magical place on earth.
I love Dolly Parton and David Attenborough. Equally.
I cannot sing or play any musical instruments.
I’m obsessed with sewers and sanitation systems.
I once broke into a Mayan temple with my brother, Spike.
Spike is an alias. It’s not his real name.
I also have a sister. She prefers to remain anonymous.
We have the same birthday.
Yes, that sucks.
I think that’s all you need to know.
