Smashwords book reviews by Cassandra Javier

  • Unseen Moon on March 08, 2014

    A collection of Horror Stroies from Eliza Victoria, a brilliant and undeniably good Filipina Author, Unseen Moon is something that every Horror/Mystery/Crime fan must read. First in the collection is Needle Rain. A story of a barkada and how they try to uncover the mysteries of a murder that happened in their hometown. One of the most mysterious stories in the pack, this is a good way to build the tension and suspense that one should feel while reading the book. However, aside from being scary, there's bit of sadness and surprise here, too. What's good is that the author was really able to capture the old-skool Filipino neighborhood--she was able to build the feel and imagery that was needed. And then comes my favorite story in the book: The Ghosts of Sinagtala. Oh, god, this is the perfect thing to read right now as the Holy Week is coming up soon, and aside from being "Holy", we all know that it's also the time when they say that bad spirits are all over the place. This (and I told the author about this) SERIOUSLY. CREEPED. ME. OUT. It's not about monsters or the usual white ladies or whatever, but the kind of horror depicted in this story is so psychological that it would really rack your brain. (And I'm getting goosies again while writing this). Read it and you will know what I mean. It's really something you'd have to put down and continue once the sun shines again (yeah I read it late, late at night and god my mind worked so bad) because it's so scary. Watch out for rats. Summer Evening, meanwhile, is brutal. You never know how twins' minds' work these days. You might be disturbed by this story and by the brutality, but all in all it was good. I like how different and creative the author can get. A tale that will surely tug at your heartstrings without losing its mystery, December, is about an orphan named December, who makes friends with a boy named Gabriel. Together, they discover secrets and mysteries about a dead body in the lake, an abandoned mansion and the people around them. Finally, there is the Viewless Dark. If you're a student and are frequenting the library, you'll be afraid. Okay seriously, this was one of the best. It's about finding out about someone's death and learning what you need to learn about that person. It's scary, it's suspenseful and it's a work that's just definitely top of the line. If you're fond of trying to solve mysteries, this story is for you. Give this book a chance because you will not regret it. And you know what? I think I'm going to re-read these stories sometime soon. They're THAT good.
  • Properly Scandalous (A Young and Scambitious short story) on May 05, 2014

    Ahh, it's finally here! Properly Scandalous is the second installment in the "Young and Scambitious" series created by Mina V. Esguerra. The author was kind enough to send an ARC a few weeks back and today's the big release day and yey! First up: The cover is TO DIE FOR. Who'd think that a Pinay author wrote this? See, this is one example of how diverse books can be (re: #weneeddiversebooks tag) and makes one realize that, hey, not only foreign authors can come up with concepts like this--and covers as gorgeous as this. (Tania Arpa worked on the cover and Nio Manzano was in charge of photographing the beautiful Alexandra Lapa) I enjoyed Young and Scambitious, but not as much as I enjoyed this one. Jane has gotten more sass and the story I think is really just beginning to get better. I'm a very big fan of Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, LA Candy, Starstruck (Lauren Conrad), and Private (Kate Brian) and this reminds me of all those in a way because of deviousness + stealth + craziness and beautiful people and beautiful places. What's great about this one though is that it's set in our very own Manila--in all its glitzy and crazy glamour. This is a fun and easy read. Everyone needs something light to read every once in a while and this is one of those books. But, though it's a light read, it's actually quite witty and smart--and would definitely make you say, "wait a minute, what's going on?" BUT that makes the book so much more fun than it already is. I'm a big fan of mystery mixed with fashion and people who do not have their heads screwed on straight (haha). What?! It makes reading enjoyable, doesn't it? The author was able to make use of realistic situations and add a dose of craziness into it (sorry for saying crazy so many times, but it is a craaaay story which makes it really awesome). If you want something fun to read and would like to get to know more about the hip and fashionable but stealthy people in the Scambitious world, go read this one NOW. It's only $0.99--such a total steal! Now the waiting starts for the next book...
