I pre-ordered Dream House by Marzia Bisognin (CutiePieMarzia on YouTube), and I finally got around to reading it after it sat on my desk for a while.
Dream House was easy to read, and it had an engaging story and interesting characters. The story follows the main character Amethyst as she finds herself in front of the Blooms’ house. The Blooms invite her to stay the night as a storm was approaching, but when Amethyst wakes up in the morning, the Blooms are missing. As Amethyst unravels the mysteries surrounding the house, including where the Blooms went, she meets the gardener, the neighbor, an old woman, and a little girl.
Amethyst was a fine main character, but to be honest she was my least favorite character because she seemed underdeveloped. Furthermore, some of her actions did seem quite repetitive and unnecessary such as eating and sleeping all the time when there were paranormal events happening in the house. The other characters were intriguing especially Avery because I did not know who he was or what his intentions were. The plot itself was also predictable at times, but it has a heartwarming ending even though some questions are left unanswered. There were also some creepy scenes especially when Amethyst goes to the basement, which I liked. I read reviews of Dream House that complained about the English, but Marzia originally wrote the book in Italian and it was translated into English, and the language used in the book did not bother me.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this book and I liked that the story was creepy at times and it left me wanting to know what was actually going on in the house. I would recommend reading this book if you enjoy thrillers or paranormal-themed books.
