Die Schatten von London (2014)

The beginning was a little ruff, but the middle and the end did give me the heebie-jeebies. I did like the unexpected plot twist by the end and the parallels were a nice touch to a well written first book. Although, I didn't really know how there can be another book, because most everything was r...

Wie wohl viele andere auch, hat mich das Thema "Jack the Ripper" schon immer fasziniert. Somit kam ich natürlich auch nicht umhin nach dieser neuesten Erscheinung zu greifen, die den gefürchteten Serienmörder noch einmal auferstehen lässt.Man begleitet die Amerikanerin Rory, die ein Auslandsjahr ...
De laatste envelop (2011)

It is weird that I like a sequel better than the first book, but this was the case with this book. when I found out that this book existed and I had read the summary I was very doubtful about reading it, since the first one hadn't made a very lasting impression on me. But boy am I glad I did. I l...

Oh, Maureen Johnson, what have you done? You couldn't have just stopped with the first book and let me believe that those two crazy kids somehow made things work despite the ocean between them.Before I go on, this review is going to be very, very spoilery. And very, very long. This is like a s...
Scarlett Fever (2010)

Overall, I think I liked this book better than the first one - which was partly because I already knew the characters.However, I didn't like how some of the plots were handled. Constant re-hashing of feelings from the first one got annoying and I don't think Lola's and Max's story lines were deal...

I really, really loved this book. It was unlike anything I've read before.There were some things I didn't like. One was Ginny and Keith. They were sort of cute, but it seemed a little convenient about how Keith just kept popping up wherever Ginny was. The other thing I didn't like was how Ginny's...

Before reading this I didn't read any of the previous books in this series by Ms. Johnson.This book is perfect, thrilling and a little bit chilling. Although the beginning is slow and dull, i had to push through to get to the interesting parts. Even though the beginning was hard to read it was in...

I have to admit something to all of you. When I first picked this book up from my pile of award nominees I had very low expectations for it. I thought it was going to be terrible. I really did. I'm not sure why I thought this. Perhaps it had to do with the cover, which, while perfectly fitting fo...

Before I get started on this review, I would like to share something that I just discovered about Maureen Johnson: as of 2012, she is the Queen of Teen for the UK (aka Young Adult Literature Queen). After reading several of her novels, I have to say that I quite agree with her nomination and elec...
The Bermudez Triangle (2007)
3.5 of 5 Votes: 5
This is the first book I've read by Maureen Johnson, and I'm so glad I started with this one. I have to be honest: I actually met her at LeakyCon last summer, and while she was very nice and very intelligent, she struck me as slightly mad-scientist-y. I went into this book not quite knowing what ...
