Book Review: Witch Hollow and the Fountain Riddle Story

I like the book. It's nice. It's fun. As you can see from the image above, the book's design is aesthetically pleasing. At first glance, most readers of YA books may probably be instantly filled with curiosity just by looking at the image. If you would perchance take a look at its book description at Amazon and other retailers, you'll see it's a good one since it entices (possible) readers. 

However, I think it may even be better if there was more "emotional impact" in the story that can add to the reader's experience. What I mean is that some descriptive words used in the story, when taken at a glance, may seem self-explanatory, but it could've been more. Like, for example, the words, "captivating eyes". It would've been better if it weren't described as simple as that. Besides, not everyone would have the same notion of how "captivating" those eyes of a certain character were. So, I guess, if more descriptive words were used (that can convey that emotional impact I was referring to), then, even the pickiest of readers may feel the story through the character's experiences.

I haven't read the first book, though. It would be nice to read it.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I have received this book for free and have written my honest opinion about it.
