{Arc Review} City of Ghost by Victoria Schwab

Book Summary:
Cassidy Blake’s parents are The Inspectres, a (somewhat inept) ghost-hunting team. But Cass herself can REALLY see ghosts. In fact, her best friend, Jacob, just happens to be one.
When The Inspectres head to ultra-haunted Edinburgh, Scotland, for their new TV show, Cass—and Jacob—come along. In Scotland, Cass is surrounded by ghosts, not all of them friendly. Then she meets Lara, a girl who can also see the dead. But Lara tells Cassidy that as an In-betweener, their job is to send ghosts permanently beyond the Veil. Cass isn’t sure about her new mission, but she does know the sinister Red Raven haunting the city doesn’t belong in her world. Cassidy’s powers will draw her into an epic fight that stretches through the worlds of the living and the dead, in order to save herself.

My Review:

This book was so good and a very quick read. It a middle grade book. I enjoy the story and the two main characters a lot.

Cassidy and Jacob, I love the bond they have together. After Cassidy die Jacob had been by her side ever since. They both ghost hunting together. It fun how the interact with each other throughout the whole book. What new adventures await for the these two in City of Ghosts?

Looking for something for Halloween and light read then check out this book. It has some twists and turns you don’t see coming. Hopefully there a book two.

Happy Reading!!!

Not Even Bones by Rebecca Schaeffer

Book Summary:
Dexter meets This Savage Song in this dark fantasy about a girl who sells magical body parts on the black market — until she’s betrayed.
Nita doesn’t murder supernatural beings and sell their body parts on the internet—her mother does that. Nita just dissects the bodies after they’ve been “acquired.” But when her mom brings home a live specimen, Nita decides she wants out — dissecting living people is a step too far.
But when she tries to save her mother’s victim, she ends up sold on the black market in his place — because Nita herself is a supernatural being. Now Nita is on the other side of the bars, and there is no line she won’t cross to escape and make sure no one can ever capture her again.
Nita did a good deed, and it cost her everything. Now she’s going to do a lot of bad deeds to get it all back.

My Review:

This book was so bloody awesome. I loves just about everything in it. The two main characters I did enjoy so much. So looking forward to book two.

I loved Nita and Kovit story. It mostly Nita story but she team up with Kovit. Nita love to dissect dead bodies and Kovit enjoys to torture people. They both have high morals and try to be good. I liked their bond they have as they try see the good each other. Can they really trust each other to escape from the horrors they are facing?

I recommend this book for older teens. There a lot of gore and body parts in this book. The story has tons of magical creatures like vampires, unicorns and ghouls. It such an original story that I have fallen in love with. Hope more readers get a chance to enjoy this book.

Happy Reading!

My Review:

I was so excited to return to Fear Street. These books got me hooked onto reading. What I love about R.L Stine you can read them out of order. The curse is explain in the beginning of the book a bit for those who don’t remember years ago. Also the book can be fore new and old readers a like.

The story there is a curse years ago between the Goodes and the Fears. Yes I forgot what it was. Lucky the books of the story is released in the young adult section.

Yes now onto the book with a curse. Who say getting marry was gonna be easy? When your a fear and a deadly curse is placed on your family. It up to to one sister to save her family from the curse and rekindle her sister bond. Will she make it in time?

For new reader and old ones alike.

{Arc Review} Mirage by Somaiya Daud

Book Summary:
In a star system dominated by the brutal Vathek empire, eighteen-year-old Amani is a dreamer. She dreams of what life was like before the occupation; she dreams of writing poetry like the old-world poems she adores; she dreams of receiving a sign from Dihya that one day, she, too, will have adventure, and travel beyond her isolated moon.
But when adventure comes for Amani, it is not what she expects: she is kidnapped by the regime and taken in secret to the royal palace, where she discovers that she is nearly identical to the cruel half-Vathek Princess Maram. The princess is so hated by her conquered people that she requires a body double, someone to appear in public as Maram, ready to die in her place.
As Amani is forced into her new role, she can’t help but enjoy the palace’s beauty—and her time with the princess’ fiancé, Idris. But the glitter of the royal court belies a world of violence and fear. If Amani ever wishes to see her family again, she must play the princess to perfection…because one wrong move could lead to her death.

My Review:

I did liked the story idea of this book. The cover is also pretty looking. I did like some of the characters in the book.

I like Amani in the book. Thought she was brave to stand in for the princess. Also thought she was foolish at time like for falling in love with the prince, while her life was on the line. How long can Amani last on pretending to a princess?

Thought the book was a slow pace read to me. It could have been action packed but it’s just me. If you guys love slow pace read then you might enjoy it. If your unsure to read the book then try it out at the library. The ending did make me a little curious on what happens next. This book comes out next week the 28th.

Happy Reading!

I really did enjoy this book. It was action packed and fun. The story and the cover alone had me drawn to the book. I did enjoy some of the characters. There will be a lot of characters to like or hate in the end.

Caledonia, I did liked her in the book. The bond she has with her crew is touching. She hides a dark secret about her old crew family. After what happen to her family she bent on revenge. Will she become consume with revenge to risk her new crew lives?

One woman on the run. Four dangerously sexy bodyguards. And a war
brewing that will change the shifter world forever…

I’m living on borrowed time, fighting
for survival against a deadly new virus that has no cure and a cult doing its
best to brainwash me. But when a mysterious note shows up on my windowsill one
night, its chilling message–Run, Wren–launches me out of the frying pan and
into the fire.

Within hours, everything I thought I knew about my life, my family, and my
origins is obliterated, and I’m racking up enemies at an alarming rate. Between
the cult I’ve just escaped, a violent shifter faction out for my blood, and an
ancient evil who eats “chosen ones” like me for breakfast, my last
hope is to join forces with four dangerous-looking men who claim they were sent
to guard my life.

Luke, a werewolf with a rap sheet. Creedence, a lynx shifter who never met a
mark he couldn’t con. Kite, a bear kin with a mean right hook and heart of
gold. And Dust, my childhood best friend and dude voted least likely to be a
secret shape-shifting griffin.

But are these men really what they seem?

Or are my alpha guardians hiding a secret agenda of their own?

I’m not sure, but one thing is for certain—choosing the right allies will mean
the difference between life and death. For me, and everyone I love.

UNLEASHED is book one in the Dark Moon Shifter’s series. It is a true reverse
harem featuring one woman and her four mates.


Excerpt

Kite’s breath rushes out, his shoulders sagging with a relief that makes me feel like I’ve done something more important than answer a question. “Good. Keep trusting me, bird girl, and I’m going to show you a whole new world. A world where you can be the powerhouse you are on the inside.”

The backs of my eyes begin to sting, but I’m smiling when I say, “There’s no cure, Kite. I might never go back into remission, let alone get better.”

He pauses, seeming to debate something silently before he whispers, “But then again, you might.” Before I can assure him that hope is a lost cause in this case, he leans down and gently presses his lips to mine and I am the one who’s lost.

My eyes slide closed as my heart lights up, each warm, sweet brush of his lips against mine making my body fill with magic. Electricity floods my nerve endings and my pulse races so fast I know I would fall over if Kite let me go. But he doesn’t let me go, he wraps me up in his big strong arms, hugging me close as he lifts me off my feet, bringing our lips onto a level playing field as he takes charge of holding us both steady. 

With a soft sob of gratitude for this kiss, this miracle, this moment of feeling like the luckiest girl in Seattle, I wrap my arms around his neck and kiss him with everything in me, not caring if I use up all the energy I’ll need to get home. 

I’m always so careful—I’ve had to be in order to keep working and having some semblance of a normal life long after most people with my condition would have taken to their beds for good—but I don’t want to be careful right now. I want to be alive and wanted and on fire. I want to burn with this man who makes me hungry in a way I’ve never experienced before. 

In just a few moments, Kite banishes every teenage kiss and lukewarm make-out session from my early twenties from my memory, leaving nothing but his smoky, sexy taste in my mouth and his campfire and almond scent swirling through my head.
