I wish I had come across this book sooner. Coraline by Neil Gaiman is a strange and slightly bizarre story, and a combination of two of my favourite genre: horror and fantasy. Written in 2002, this book has received many awards and has even been compared to classics such as Alice in Wonderland. It is known essentially as a children’s book, but it has a lot of offer even for adults. It is short and simple and the writing has a wonderfully eerie flow to it. This is my teaser from the book-
“It was a rustling voice, scratchy and dry. It made Coraline think of some kind of enormous dead insect. Which was silly, she knew. How could a dead thing, especially a dead insect, have a voice?”

good teaser, I didn’t even realize this was a book, I only heard about the movie…
Ooooh! Love the new layout!! 😀
Thanks for stopping by Sinnful Books! I love, love, love Coraline! I read it several years ago, and it has stuck with me ever since! Have you seen the movie? Freaky, but it doesn't really begin to touch the book!!!
Armstrong is an awesome author! Frostbitten — the book I'm reading — is farther into the series, so start with Bitten (I think). If you like werewolves, this is a good series!!
Btw, I'm a new follower ^_^
seems a good one
@BREE- Thanks 🙂 I liked your teaser as well!
@Heather- The movie is pretty recent, right?
@SS- I know!!! Me too 😀
@Sinn- Oh, thanks for telling that! I haven't read many werewolf-related books as of now, but I'm sure I'll love it!!
@Harish- It's cool! 🙂
