    I flew through this book!

    I think I’ve made it clear through the years that Victoria Schwab is one of my favourite authors (probably THE favourite author). I just love every book of hers that I’ve read. And I’m spoiled to have so many books of hers coming out in the next few months (in addition to this book, there’s Vengeful – my most anticipated book of 2018 – and The Steel Prince, volume one in the Shades of Magic comics, coming out next spring). I pre-ordered City of Ghosts and I was s excited to read it. I flew through it because I just didn’t want to put it down! I loved everything about this book: the setting (Scotland is one of the places I’ve always wanted to visit, and it’s one of my favourite book settings); the writing; the characters; the plot; the worldbuilding; the ghosts. I mean, a ghost story set in Scotland written by my favourite author? No surprise that I adored this book! (Also, for those wondering, this is a middle-grade book, so even though it’s a little spooky and full of ghosts, it is written for a younger audience.) This was an excellent blend of friendship, family, spookiness, and mystery. I loved City of Ghosts so much that I wanted to savour each page, but I also had to know what was happening next. Highly recommended! I spent a delightful day curled up on the couch with this book, and it’s definitely one of my favourites of the year. I read the e-book, but I really want to own a physical copy to add to my ‘favourites’ shelf. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!

    Second book

    The book was really good. I really think that she should make another book in a different adventure but the same charaters. Whoever is reading this I hope you read this book and if you already have then read it again this is my second time reading this book and I figured out things that I didn't the first time I read this book. Amzing book READ THIS BOOK

    Fun Ghost Adventure

    I don't usually read a lot of middle grade, but I couldn't say no to Victoria Schwab, especially around Halloween. I'm so glad I picked up this fun little book, which is much lighter fare than Schwab's usual work. But that's not to say it's all good times for the characters, and there are definitely come creepy moments. The story is a fun ghost adventure throughout Scotland and presents an interesting view of the afterlife and those who can walk between it. I found Cassidy to be an interesting character who I always wanted to root for, and Jacob is an excellent companion to her. I really want to see their unique relationship grow. The horror element was also quite intense at some points, especially near the end. The visual writing made it all the more exciting. This was a great start to my Halloween reading splurge, and while it's clearly written for younger audiences, I don't see why adults wouldn't enjoy this fun ghost adventure.
