This book had been on my to-read list for a while now. I am a HUGE fan of mysteries and especially ghost stories! And I thought Ruined was a great combination of both!
The positive: The first thing I have to throw out there is the Greek mythology reference at the beginning of the book! If you don't know by now, (and you really should...I've only mentioned this about a million and a half times!) I am, like, the biggest fan of mythology! My fave, of course, is Greek mythology...I just love it! Anyway, about this reference, it was just a little something about Hestia: Goddess of the hearth.
As I said before, I love ghost stories. I don't know what it is about them, but they are just some of my favorite things to read about. I thought Lisette's story was very interesting and intriguing, as well. It was such a great mystery!
The not-so-positive: The only problems I had were that, first, the beginning was a bit slow, and I wanted things to get action-y soon. And second, the book was kinda predictable. The "surprises" in the book I saw coming, when I actually like being caught off guard.
But, overall, I really enjoyed this book! I thought the book wrapped up nicely there at the end, so I'm curious to read the sequel and see what it will be about.
