Palace of Ghosts ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ’€

I am so very thankful to have received a copy of this book for an honest review.
With that being said, I love a good ghost story! They are one of my favorite parts of horror…the unknown. I tend to watch many paranormal shows, so I am a huge fan of sorts….

This story was short, but as of late, I’ve learned it doesn’t matter the size of the book, as long as it’s told correctly it punches a pack! This ghost story was nothing short of that. All the feels from the very beginning, getting to sympathize with the war vets to hoping they heal to reading and imaging the conclusion unfold. This was a well told story that I know I will be thinking about for sometime after reading it and those are the stories I LOVE!

Many people may not agree, but this was a phenomenal told ghost story which left me wanting more…..

No Place Like Here

No Place Like Here
By Christina June
Young Adult Contemporary
Paperback, Audiobook & ebook, 288 Pages

May 21st 2019 by Blink
From Christina June, author of It Started with Goodbye and Everywhere You
Want to Be, comes No Place Like Here, a modern twist on Hansel and Gretel.
Ashlyn Zanotti has big plans for the summer. She’s just spent a year at boarding
school and can’t wait to get home. But when Ashlyn’s father is arrested for tax evasion
and her mother enters a rehab facility for “exhaustion,” a.k.a. depression, her life is
turned upside down.
The cherry on top? Ashlyn’s father sends her to work with a cousin she doesn’t even
know at a rustic team-building retreat center in the middle of nowhere. A self-
proclaimed “indoor girl,” not even Ash’s habit of leaving breadcrumb quotes–
inspirational sayings she scribbles everywhere–can help her cope.
With a dangerously careless camp manager doling out grunt work, an overbearing
father trying to control her even from prison, and more than a little boy drama to
struggle with, the summer is full of challenges. And Ashlyn must make the toughest
decision of her life: keep quiet and follow her dad’s marching orders, or find the
courage to finally stand up to her father to have any hope of finding her way back
home.
Fans looking for stories with elements of drama, romance, friendship, and an
unflinching look into navigating and improving even the most difficult parent-teen
relationships need look no further.

YOU, ME, & LETTING GO

by Katie Kaleski
Publication Date: May 14, 2019
Publisher: Swoon Romance

Van Satoโ€™s got labels. Tourettes, ADHD, SPD โ€“ words that have defined his existence since the time he was old enough to
know what they meant. Now, Van wants to prove heโ€™s more than an acronym, a syndrome, a problem kid. He takes a
summer job as a day camp counselor to prove heโ€™s capable of independence and moving on to the next phase in his life.
Maybe, he might even make a friend while there. Someone whoโ€™s got just as many or even more labels than him.
Someone who understands what itโ€™s like.
Tabby Dubanowksi wants to forget about everything, the hospitalization, the judgment, the whispers behind her back.
As a camp counselor, she will be admired, looked up to, and able to help people who donโ€™t know anything about her old
life. Tabby wants a fresh start and a chance to re-ignite her passion for film-making, if only for one summer.
After running away from their pasts, Van and Tabby collide in a storm cloud of attraction laced with self-doubt,
insecurity, shame, and blame. Now, with Van feeling like he might have to quit his job, and Tabby struggling to quell the
urge to cut, they will struggle to find themselves in a world designed to keep them apart.

Katie Kaleski has started down many career paths and held many jobsโ€”indie craft store clerk, pizza maker, photo
developer, shoe salesperson and cashier, dental assistant in the army, daycare teacher, student teacherโ€”but her
favorite one by far is being a writer.
Sheโ€™s originally from Chicago, so she says things like pop, gym shoes, and front room. Her favorite food
group is sugar, and she loves writing young adult novels.

The Dark Game…๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€

This was my very first read of Mr. Janz’s work….I sat on this review for a few days to let the innards really sink in. With that being said, I was lost at first and couldn’t connect to the characters, I was confusing one for the other- too fast paced POVs. BUT, once I started feeling that adrenaline pumping and getting halfway through the book, the plot and premise sucked me right in. I didn’t see where he was going until about 3/4 of the way through, but something pulled me to the needing point of knowing what would happen. Maybe this isn’t the right book to start with, but his writing STYLE has me hooked! I’m planning on reading plenty of his work coming up for reviews and I am so excited to jump head first to see how they are to this one! So ending this review, I need to say, pick up this book whether you’ve read his work or not because he write with a mental horror that stays with you long after you read the book!

The Cure for Dreaming…

This was not a bad book at all. Just really not what I was expecting at all. While it had it’s “YA horror” (using that term lightly) moments….it was not horror I was looking forward to. I continue the read to the end to find out what happened with the characters, but that fell short as well. I’m a bit disappointed in how I feel about this one. It was more of a YA historical fiction, so if you’re into those stories, this one is a recommend for you. But, if you’re looking for creepy factor….keep looking.

The Woman in the dark ๐ŸŒŸ ๐ŸŒŸ ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ซ

Really, 3 1/2 stars, but we don’t get that option. First I was really into this book, it started off so promising and intriguing….then somewhere towards the middle and end, it was losing me. I don’t know if it’s because it was cliche or predictable. It just had me drag my feet and the wow factor wasn’t there. I felt like I was forced to finish it just to see what transpired but it was super slow getting to finish it. Just because it didn’t amaze me, doesn’t mean it was a bad book…it had a promising plot….

The Haunted- Danielle Vega ๐Ÿ‘ป

This book was an amazing ghost story to give you the right kind of chills at just the right moments, making you think you know what’s going to happen…nope, you’re totally wrong. The twisted end left me shocked and this was great for a YA horror! Only complaint, being older than a normal YA reader, the love triangle bothered me a bit how sudden it all happens happily. But, don’t let that detere you from reading this great novel….I absolutely LOVED everything about the style of writing, to the plot twist, and the characters! Definitely a must read!

Bizarre Events ๐ŸŽช๐Ÿ’€

First off thank you to Mr. Brown for letting me read a copy of this book before it was released!!

Now….I can’t put into words how amazingly creeptastic this story was. It’s a bunch of short spooky tales, but they weave together flawlessly!๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ™Œ I really enjoyed this book ALOT and I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone interested in strange yet….horrific in it’s unique way!

ALL THE STARS!!๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ
