SCARED THE SHIT OUTTA ME. MADE ME CRY. MADE ME ANGRY. MADE ME LAUGH. MADE ME FEEL ALL FLUTTERY INSIDE. IN SHORT... A DAMN GREAT YA!
Okay.. first off, reading this novel and finishing this at 3am of Friday the thirteenth? so not cool! so friggin scary and yes, just a little coincidence.. yea i keep telling my self that. The author is sooooo great to have made me feel an array of emotions.
The book started with the feel of THE EXORCIST meets CONSTANTINE meets GHOST WHISPERER teenage version. I, a fan of films with exorcisms was just dumbstruck with the first exorcist scene here in the book. I mean, i can't help but imagine it vividly. The other exorcist scenes are just as scary. The doll scenes especially. Mygawd., i think i'll be having nightmares about that. You see, like Bridget.. i have a thing against dolls. After watching one episode of Are you Afraid of the Dark, i swore them off my shelves. So anyway.. that is how scary / creepy the novel is.
This is non demon related. The issue with her mom flirting with two men (OR MAYBE JUST ONE) is just.. anger -arising. If i had been Bridget, i think i'll be angry as well. Also Alexa? ugh, i was soooo looking forward to cat fight.
sad / tear-jerker:
All scenes involving Bridget missing her dad are tear-jerkers. Especially when she found out that the cat was actually his dad's representation,, uhh i could just cry with her!
Of course, scenes with Matt. He's just the type of character that the main character would likely depend on. He's always there for Bridget and he's been very understanding and helpful given the bizarre situation. I Honestly, even without a love interest, i would've loved the book as much. This love side is just a plus for the novel.. and a great plus at that.. although i'm still wondering what the energy thing is about.
*sigh* This will be a series right? I sweeaarr.. Bridget is just plain awesome i wanna be her! i wanna say:
This is who I am. I’m Bridget Liu and I’m a Watcher.
this one's just perfect but please let there be a next book soon....
