Add on Goodreads

PLUS POINTS:
It’s kind of creepy. It’s not that creepy but there are times where you look up from your book to look around the room in case of monsters.

Character Development game is going strong. I usually like books more if I love the main character and that’s why I gave this a high rating. At first, I didn’t really care about Coraline but the more I read, the more I loved her. She was just so smart and brave! 

MINUS POINTS:
Add just one point to my rating and this book would be 5 stars. But why didn’t I add that point? Simply because:

It’s too short! Well, what can you expect from a novella? Of course it’s short! But I just wished I could’ve explored the world more or made a stronger connection to the characters. Wish this could’ve been a novel. (It’s so good!)

OVER ALL THOUGHTS:
I definitely recommend it!
