I'm just a girl who loves reading more than life itself. A day without a book is a day gone wrong, in my opinion :) Looking forward to meeting new people, talking to them about books and spreading the bookish love!
Hollow Pike was a big surprise for me. I admit I didn't quite know what I was walking into when I bought the book. I knew the synopsis was damn intriguing, and the purpleness of it was so eye-catching, so I got it. But between the moment I bought it and the moment I read it there was a gap of about a year, and I'm now quite angry at myself for it because this was quite a good book, and I recommend you give it a try.
First of all, Hollow Pike is almost divided into a contemporary part, and a paranormal part. The first part of the book mostly deals with Lis, the main character, dealing with school life, picking "sides" and fighting bullies. Lis ran from her last school because she was bullied. Now she's in Hollow Pike, and she realizes it might all happen again. There are steaks of creepy bits, and hints of what might happen, and her dreams are chill inducing, but it's almost contemporary.
Then comes the second part, which is a lot more paranormal, with more witchcraft, intrigue, and a murder investigation. More along the lines of what the synopsis promises, actually...
