Strange Weather by Joe Hill

Hey Guys!

I’m coming back at you with more books I have read! So I said last time that I was starting the book Strange Weather by Joe Hill. Well I am finished it and i have a lot of feelings!

Strange weather has four short stories in it, so it was hard for me to rate on Goodreads, because I loved some and some I was feeling rather “meh” about!

The first story is called Snapshot. This is about a young boy who runs into a very creepy guy, he names the Phoenician. When he gets ahold of the camera, he finds out that with each picture, it erases a memory of the person you’re taking a picture of. It’s an intense and interesting story that I absolutely loved. It was such a cool and unique idea! If I could rate all the stories from 1-4 on which one I loved most, this one would fall into second place.

The next story is called Loaded. I love this one. It’s my favourite out of all of them. It’s such a chilling story and hits too close to home. Basically, a security worker at the mall becomes a hero after a mass shooting. However, when a reporter begins to figure out the real story, his love of guns and sanity comes into question.

The third story, Aloft. Is about a man who goes parachuting with a girl he’s in love with. When their plane forces them to jump put early, he hits a floor of clouds and is stuck their with no way to get down. He begins to realize that almost everything his mind imagines, is created by the clouds around him. The story switches to his past and his present issue of being stuck on a cloud. Out of all the stories, this one was my least favourite, but I still enjoyed it!

Last story, was called Rain. This one I rated third, but it might even be tied with the second one! It was an interesting story about a crystal rain falling on people in Colorado! The crystals fell like nails, killing anyone who was left out in the rain. A young girl lost her girlfriend and began the walk to tell her family what happened. Along the way she runs into all kinds of chaos and trouble from people confused about the rain and even discovers the source of the rain in the end.

Overall, I gave this story three stars! Like I said, it was hard to rate it, because I felt so different about every story! I also based my review on Joe Hill’s last book few books. I loved Fireman so much, that this one was only three stars compared to this one!

My next read will be: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck

The Snowman

The Snowman

Hey Everyone!

I recently finished my book and thought I would do do a review on it! This book is by a Norwegian writer named Jo Nesbo! His books tend to be on the creepy side, and I’ve loved reading his books in the past! The Snowman was just as creepy.

I want to make one thing very clear- it’s not about a killer snowman! Everyone has been asking me this and I honestly picked it up thinking the same, but no there is no murdering snowman. Instead, there is a more realistic story.

The main character, Harry Hole (I’m so immature, I laughed for so long) is a detective who is in charge of the case of a missing woman. The only thing left is her scarf wrapped around a snowman outside one of the windows at her home. The case takes some twists and turns that makes it difficult to predict the ending. I won’t say anymore, because it might give away the ending!

I have something just to note here before concluding! This is the seventh book of the series. I picked it up, read it, and entered it into Goodreads! When I did this, it came up as the seventh book for this detective! I had no idea! Now looking back there is a few things that makes you realize it’s a sequel, but if you don’t want to read the first six that’s fine. You really don’t have to! He does a summary of the important things that catches you u tp speed! I would say that the end of this books gives hints for the next book which is really no big deal- maybe you’ll be sucked into reading the rest!

I actually really enjoyed this book! I only wanted to read it because of the Snowman concept, but it was one of the better mystery books I’ve read recently! Like I said, the story was hard to predict, I liked the main character, it was very gory at parts which made it intense! It also freaked me out because it snowed insanely in Canada during the creepy parts and I was like I’m going to die if I see a snowman outside my window!

I gave this story 4 stars on Goodreads: ⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟

And now I’m onto the next book: Strange Weather written by Joe Hill!
