    I say it is an onryuu, yet I feel no hate from her An onryuu with a conscience, kami help us Shimatta That means shit in Japanese God help us, this is supposed to be our terrifying heroine Kuso yaro Sou desu ne Ramen insert random ass Japanese word here for authenticity Sukiyaki Hentai Bukkakke Hello Kitty This book will be scary, they said A cross between Dexter and The Ring, they said Not fucking likely.This was how scary the book was for me.Trust me, I m just as disappointed as anyone This bo [...]

    Is this really supposed to be a horror book Liker real I m surprised to say this, since I usually never read this genre because of the chicken that I am , but I found it very dull and never did I have some goose bumps while reading Goose bumps are mandatory to me when reading a supposedly horror and creepy story.If someone who has read The Forbidden Game by L.J Smith and couldn t sleep ALL NIGHT says this book was not scary, believe that person On the other hand that book was very different comp [...]

    ARC provided by Sourcebooks Fire through NetgalleyTW murder, mentions of rapeI don t own a TV Yeah, I know you re expecting me to go down the usual pretentious, I don t own a TV, because books are the superior form of blah blah blah but the truth is I don t own one because I am so crazy that after I watched The Ring I had to get rid of my TV There will be NO creepy kids climbing out of a well and into my house So when I got approved for this ARC I went, Oh no, Isa What have you done I decided to [...]

    Warning Scary GIFS galore I posted some Asian Film Recommendations as an extra to posting this review on my blog Check it out here and go marathon some scary movies Since I was young, I ve always loved Asian horror films I m a fan of horror in general who agrees with me that getting goosebumps is AWESOME No No Okay , but there s a certain quality in the Asian counterparts that I don t really see in Western works For one, they incorporate their mythology in their films and literature, and these a [...]

    3.5 starsLet s get one fact straight I am a huge wuss I hide behind pillows during horror movies and force people to come with me when I walk into dark rooms I am freaking scared of dolls Those Barbies I collected as a kid I want to throw them all out the window But after reading my first horror book, Anna Dressed in Blood, I thought I wasn t going to be as scared Well, ha ha to myself.That was my reaction throughout the book I was happily enticed by all the mythology and Japanese history, and t [...]

    The thing that stands out about The Girl From the Well is the omnipotent, out of the story narrator Well, to be quite fair, Okiku isn t totally out of the story she s actually a ghost who murders child rapists and abusers And she is fucking awesome Not only is she the morally grey girl villain we all needed, but she s also vividly developed and has a brilliant character arc This book is not outright terrifying, it s just unsettling It s really creepy and atmospheric, with some good suspense The [...]

    We are the fates that people fear to become We are what happens to good persons and to bad persons and to everyone in between Murdered deads live in storms without season, in time without flux We do not go because people do not let us go I frankly haven t heard of this book before, or I genuinely just don t remember it, until, I read an article about it the other month Read it here.I usually shy away from anything horror related, mainly because I m a complete wuss Even though, I ve seen handful [...]

    Even with the great premise and creepy as heck scenes throughout, I can t say I liked this one much, unfortunately Though this is all due to the writing, and if you re a fan of it you will have a much better experience with this book than I.The writing is one that, although may work for some, I could never get used to The narrative voices plural because I think there were than 1, but I m not 100% sure are in 3rd person which is always harder for me to connect with regardless, but in this case e [...]

    It is only for few seconds But when you have resigned yourself to an eternity filled with little else but longing, a few seconds is enough This book should be scary, right But why it doesn t felt like one If I could rate the scary creepy level of this book from 1 to 5 1 is the lowest and 5 is the highest , I will give it a 2.5 There are few scary scenes that are scary enough but most are just okay Meh Compared to Nova Ren Suma s Imaginary Girls, this book fell short in terms of giving me the eer [...]

    The Girl from the Wellsuccessfully gave me the chills and scared the hell out of me and I didn t expect it.It was like The Grudge The Ring both Japanese version in book form I remember that time when my friends and I had The Grudge Ju On movie marathon and there are lot of jump scares Especially, Kayako Saeki crawling down the damn stairs and have this eerie voice is etched forever in my mind After reading this book YES I finally found a good Halloween book The story is about a vengeful ghost na [...]

    Hits all the cliche tropes and imagery of Japanese horror films and manga Drowned girls with long dark hair and dark pits for eyes who hangs upside down from the ceiling or come through the mirror or tv Light that mysteriously go out and flash on just long enough to see a shocking sight such as a man being dragged under a bed or into a closet Pooling blood Claw marks appearing on walls or skin Creepy dolls are there any other sort in films Because it relies on effects that are primarily visual t [...]

    This is a rare case of sequel is better than prequel for me Where The Sufferingwas truly terrifying and had a magnificently scary setting, The Girl From the Well lacked that feeling Told from Okiku s perspective, the whole story felt distant and detached Still, I enjoyed reading the beginning of this series, and things make sense now.

    It is not in my nature to be interested in the living.You can find this review and all of my other reviews at Novel Descent Thanks for the support I read this as one of my books during October because I was reading nothing but scary stuff I thought this looked pretty cool but it didn t live up to its potential for me The Girl from the Well started off really great This book has a surprising narrator a young girl named Okiku, who just happens to be dead She also happens to be a spirit that gets r [...]

    I have to shout one thing first, okay Okay Keep calm, just let me get this off my chest THIS WAS AMAZING AND SCARY AND FREAKISHLY FANTASTIC IF YOU HAVE NOT READ IT YET, YOU RE MISSING OUT.AaaandI m done I am I could end the review here, to be honest But, I m not positive you re convinced Although, in all honesty Everyone knows I m trustworthy and that if I like a book you ought to drop everything and rush out and read it But for the SKEPTICS, I will explain.The Girl From The Well is part Japanes [...]

    2.5 stars Not bad but underwhelming overall Just expected shrugs Not much else to say really.

    WARNING This review WILL include gifs and images that might disturb.There s an issue with image links on GR right now, only half of them are showing up from time to time Hopefully this will fix itself soon This book has been written up as a cross between The Ring and Dexter, but I actually felt it was equal parts The Ring The Grudge And a little bit of The Eye This one makes sense if you ve seen the movie I had two very different reactions to this book The first was fear The creep factor was wa [...]

    After having read a few milder ghost stories I was in the mood for something darker, scarier, and down right thrilling.What I wasn t expecting was this horrific, crazy, down right creepy story that would leave me turning the lights on at night and anxiously looking around for the ghosts that might be lurking in said darkness.This read was fabulous The perfect creepy blend of Japanese lore with American culture Ghosts, demons, doll possession, curses, mysterious tattoos, murderers, legends, and s [...]

    I am where dead children go I ve never read a Young Adult book with Asian lore sprinkled in So when I found out that this features a Japanese horror story, I was morbidly excited and curious.I open The Girl From The Well with one expectation.It has to be batshit scary.If anyone is familiar with the horror movies The Grudge or The Ring, then this book will remind you strongly of them The Girl From The Well features a very restless and violent ghost who goes by the name Okiku Like every other rest [...]

    The legend of Okiku is one of the most famous stories in Japanese folklore and has seen a massive resurgence in the past few decades with films like Ringu and Ju On The Grudge This year we even have the film Sadako v Kayako, where the two Okiku inspired villians battle head to head Rin Chupeco gives us new depth into Okiku s story, showing us humanity then we are used to.While many YA novels transcend the genre this wasn t one of them Better written then your average R.L Stine book but I d say [...]

    No me gust Personajes que jam s lograron interesarme, historia muy clich , no da miedo y en su mayor parte es aburrida Literalmente no pasa nada hasta los ltimos tres cap tulos No lo recomiendo.

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Sourcebooks for having this book available to read now The Grudge meets, The Ring, meets an awesome book This book is creepy but in a good way I loved it The girl from the well is named Okiku and she was killed years ago Her ghost stayed around to kill people that murder children She s really creepy at first, well she s creepy all along, but she s good She certainly does some creepy things and makes some creepy noises I would love to see this as a movie She me [...]

    3.5 StarsThis is dark and haunting tale of vengeful spirits, heavily inspired by Japanese horror Considering this book is intended for a younger audience, I felt that it had some decently creepy scenes, with some unsettling sounds and images woven into the story Even the writing itself was purposely unnerving with fragmented sentences, formatted in a way to unsettle the reader.The story was heavily influenced by the Japanese traditions and cultural ideas about the spirit world Told from the pers [...]

    Starting The Girl from the Well I was a little on the fence about it because when it comes to Japanese horror stories I m a total wuss Really The movie The Ring scared the crap out of me And there were some seriously creepy parts in the book but I ended up really liking the story, especially the author s writing style.This was really a unique story, in my opinion, because it was told from the point of view of Okiku, a centuries old spirit that hunts down child murderers and unleashes her wrath o [...]

    Loved the Japanese culture woven through the story Loved that the narrator is a ghost of vengeance Loved the lyrical and beautiful writing This book was a treat to read I didn t want to stop reading, and it definitely kept me on the edge of my seat I don t know how scary it is compared to other horror books since I don t typically read in that genre, but I thought it was ok scary Not too scary, but a nice even stream of intenseness While I enjoyed the Japanese influence, there were points where [...]

    This actually started out good I am where dead children go Unfortunately the writing style _ 3rd person_ with its changing pov s It is the ghost Is it the aunt _ rapidly made me lose my interest on it.The only reason I didn t DNF it, was because I have the arc of second in the series to readYay me.

    See reviews at YA Midnight Reads3.5 starsIt has been a long time since I ve read a novel based on a myth so I really did not know what to expect from The Girl from the Well, though I am pleasantly surprised This novel is based on a popular Japanese ghost story which was about a girl who was murdered, then thrown down a well, head first As you may already know, I do not read horror novels all that often because quite frankly, I am a wimp Talk about dolls and my imagination will go flying just li [...]

    The Girl from the Well is a very exciting and impressive debut from Rin Chupeco.When I first seen this book in Barnes and Noble, I d never seen it before or heard anything about it.I guessed it was horror and grabbed right away I m really glad I did.Right from the first page, this book got my full attention and never let go I was really impressed with thewriting and concept At times I was a little bit confused because of the fast pace but I think I was just reading too fast to take it all in I w [...]

    A very high creep quotientAre you afraid of the dark Or scary movies features spook children and the like Then you might want to read with the lights on because The Girl from the Well features that famous urban legend of the Japanese ghost girl from the well yes exactly the one you are thinking of from that movie The Ring Heck that movie is even mentioned here in the book Not only do you have her, Okiku, as the main scary ghost in this book but there is another nasty main ghost plus many ghosts [...]

    creepy as heck i got major goosebumps while reading some of these scenes _
