Monthly Wrap-Up: March 2018



And another month flies by... seriously, WTF? Lol. I can't believe April is already here! On the plus side, the weather here seems to finally be stabilizing. I really don't mind the cold (I actually prefer winter over summer), but the fluctuating temps were driving me insane! I remember one day a couple of weeks back, it was literally freezing out in the morning so I had to turn on my car before leaving for work. But then that same day on my way home, I literally had the AC on cause it was so warm out 😐 lol

Synopsis:

High School Can Be a Real Killer

Break a mirror
Walk under a ladder
Step on a crack


Innocent childhood superstitions …

But someone at the secluded Trask Academy of Performing Arts is taking things one deadly step further when the campus is rocked with the deaths of some of its star students.

Layna Curtis, a talented, popular senior, soon realizes that the seemingly random, accidental deaths of her friends aren’t random—or accidents—at all. Someone has taken the childhood games too far, using the idea of superstitions to dispose of their classmates. As Layna tries to convince people of her theory, she uncovers the terrifying notion that each escalating, gruesome murder leads closer to its final victim: her.

Will Layna’s opening night also be her final bow?

My rating: ★★★☆☆

It’s Spring Break in an elite boarding school on a secluded island right off of Seattle. Most everyone has gone home, but not Layna and her friends. Little do they know, someone is out to kill them. It’s too bad they’re stuck on the island with a murderer... with no way out.

Review: Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices #2) by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2)
Title: Clockwork Prince

Series: The Infernal Devices #2

Previous book in this series: Clockwork Angel

Author: Cassandra Clare

Publication date: December 2011

Synopsis:

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street—and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, but her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will—the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?

As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.

My rating: ★★★★★

Tessa’s brother, Nate, had once promised her everything in London—a new beginning, a wonderful place to live, a city of soaring buildings and gorgeous parks. What Tessa had found instead was horror and betrayal, and danger beyond anything she could have imagined.

The Shadowhunters of London are still out looking for Mortmain and stop him from achieving his plan with the Internal Devices. However, what they have found is even more betrayal.


I love this series, but the love triangle just hurts my soul so much! You all know how much I despise love triangles, they are messy, and the one in this one..

Review: Halloween Night by R.L. Stine

Title: Halloween Night

Series: Halloween Night #1

Author: R.L. Stine

Publication date: September 1993

Published by: Scholastic

Source: Own paperback

Buy it: Amazon | Thrift Books

Synopsis:

Brenda hates her cousin Halley. And Brenda isn't the only one. Because Halley keeps stealing other people's boyfriends. So Brenda and her friends decide to plan the perfect murder. Something to go along with Brenda's perfect Halloween party.

Not that they're really going to kill anybody. It's just a joke.

Right?

Ha. Ha.

My rating: ★★★★☆

Brenda's cousin Halley moves in with her and her family temporarily because Halley's parents are going through a nasty divorce. But let me tell you, this Halley girl is a real piece of work! She is just awful! She is mean, a boyfriend stealer, and just a two-faced bitch, overall. Brenda cannot stand her cousin any longer, so naturally, Brenda and her two best friends plan to murder Halley at Brenda's upcoming Halloween party... On paper, at least. It's just a story for a writing project the girls have, so no one is actually going to kill anybody... Or are they?

Synopsis:

A bony hand beckons from a shallow grave...

But only Ellie Anderson can see the skeletal hand. Ellie has visions—visions of past secrets and future horror. Her visions have led her to the body of a girl who was killed two years before. Now her power may help her find the murderer…unless he finds her first!

My rating: ★★★★☆

Seeing too much is murder!

Ellie is just minding her own business, taking her dog on a walk, when all of a sudden she stumbles upon a dead body in the woods! Luckily for this dead body, Ellie has visions of the past and the future (which, for the record, I thought was awesome!), so naturally the body wants justice for their death via Ellie. That's right, poor Ellie starts having these horrible visions after discovering the body, and there’s nothing left for her to do but find out who killed this person.

Synopsis:

Ellie's new case takes her far out of town, to an historic but crumbling nineteenth-century skyscraper in downtown Atlanta. The reclusive, once-prominent family living at the top of the tower are experiencing paranormal disturbances that grow more threatening by the day.

Ellie and Stacey must unravel the hidden history of the tower and the ancestors of the family who occupy it—a history full of crime, corruption, wealth, and power. With floor after floor of dark, haunted spaces, the labyrinthine antique tower presents one of the greatest ghost-trapping challenges that Ellie has ever faced.

My rating: ★★★★☆

In this installment of Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper, we have a case outside of town, and it's a haunted skyscraper! How cool is that?

Ellie: “We don’t even know if there’s a real ghost involved yet, or just creaky floorboards and groaning pipes.”
“Well, I sure hope something’s haunted, because I had to wake up at headache o’clock today,” Stacey said.

The Third Evil (Fear Street Cheerleaders, #3)
Title: The Third Evil

Series: Fear Street Cheerleaders #3

Author: R.L. Stine

Publication date: October 1992

Synopsis:

It’s back!

Did the evil spirit really leave Kimmy’s body? The cheerleaders of Shadyside High can still feel its dark presence, and Corky knows that it is out there, somewhere close. And getting closer.

Corky is tormented night after night by dreams of her dead sister, Bobbi. What terrifying message is Bobbi trying to tell her? When the evil begins again—more horrible, more gruesome than ever—Corky knows it is up to her to learn the century-old secrets and destroy the evil spirit’s power for good. But so many have died already—will Corky be next?

My rating: ★★★★☆

Fight, fight, fight or die, die, die!

Poor Corky. Both her sister Bobbi and boyfriend Chip are dead—killed by the evil spirit. But it’s not over yet! The evil spirit is back once again! This time around, the evil spirit possess someone I never would have guessed! I was so surprised to find out who it was in this time. But it was very interesting see it in this perspective and see the internal struggle between host and evil spirit. However, there was one different thing that happened in this book that I didn’t really understand: this time the evil spirit actually let the host remember the things they did while being possessed. It was very strange because in the previous book, Kimmy did not remember at all being possessed, but maybe the spirit is growing weaker as time goes on...?

The Second Evil (Fear Street Cheerleaders, #2)
Title: The Second Evil

Author: R.L. Stine

Publication date: September 1992

Published by: Archway/Simon Pulse

Buy it: Amazon | Thrift Books

Synopsis:

Corky Corcoran is sure it's just her imagination when she sees her dead sister rise from the grave. Or is it?

Corky is trying to put the nightmare of Bobbi's death behind her—she's back on the Shadyside cheerleading squad and has become friends with Kimmy and Debra. But everything is not back to normal for Corky—she hears horrible screams in the gym, her friend has become obsessed with the occult, and a strange young man is following her. And then the murders begin again...

Has the evil spirit from the Fear Street cemetery returned to destroy them one by one?

My rating: ★★★★☆

Cheers... from the grave!

Corky is still totally heartbroken over Bobbi’s death, understandably. Corky is really having a hard time putting her life back together—she obsessively goes to Bobbi’s grave, she’s off the cheer team, and to top it all off, some creepy weirdo seems to be stalking her. Oh, and the evil spirit that killed her sister might be back. I think I forgot to mention that. Lol.
