Haunting the Deep
Haunting the Deep | Adriana Mather
The Titanic meets the delicious horror of Ransom Riggs and the sass of Mean Girls in this follow-up to the #1 New York Times bestseller How to Hang a Witch, in which a contemporary teen finds herself a passenger on the famous "ship of dreams"--a story made all the more fascinating because the author's own relatives survived the doomed voyage. Samantha Mather knew her family's connection to the infamous Salem Witch Trials might pose obstacles to an active social life. But having survived one curse, she never thought she'd find herself at the center of a new one. This time, Sam is having recurring dreams about the Titanic . . . where she's been walking the deck with first-class passengers, like her aunt and uncle. Meanwhile, in Sam's waking life, strange missives from the Titanic have been finding their way to her, along with haunting visions of people who went down with the ship. Ultimately, Sam and the Descendants, along with some help from heartthrob Elijah, must unravel who is behind the spell that is drawing her ever further into the dream ship . . . and closer to sharing the same grim fate as its ghostly passengers. Praise for How to Hang a Witch: "It's like Mean Girls meets history class in the best possible way." --Seventeen Magazine "Mather shines a light on the lessons the Salem Witch Trials can teach us about modern-day bullying--and what we can do about it." --Bustle.com "Strikes a careful balance of creepy, fun, and thoughtful." --NPR "I am utterly addicted to Adriana Mather's electric debut. It keeps you on the edge of your seat, twisting and turning with ghosts, witches, an ancient curse, and--sigh--romance. It's beautiful. Haunting. The characters are vivid and real. I. Could. Not. Put. It. Down." --Jennifer Niven, bestselling author of All the Bright Places

So much fun! This was the second in this YA series, and almost as great as the first one. Witches and ghosts (even some historically famous ghosts) and all the fun characters! The series could end here, but I for one hope that it doesn‘t. I would definitely read more!

Second in the series and just as fun. This one has a Titanic element as well witches, curses, and a Salem setting. Great read for this time of year. I hope she continues writing this series.

I‘ve started reading the sequel to How to Hang a Witch and I‘m loving it so far. I‘ve only gotten to chapter 13 but wow it‘s really good and I can‘t wait to read more!!
-
Edit: I finished the book and it was really good! It had plot twists and love and intense moments where I couldn‘t take my eyes off. I highly recommend this book!

So the beginning was a little rough for me, but I generally have a hard time with MCs who insist on denying the obvious. But, that might just YA for me. And it was worth it to push through because the plot picked up and I thoroughly enjoyed reading as these girls developed their friendships. The bad guy was on my list of suspects, but Mather muddied the waters sufficiently that it was still a fun surprise! Overall, a great read!

LA1 How many characters did you have to push through before it got really good? 11mo

Forgot to review this. I didn‘t like it as much as How to Hang a Witch. Mainly because I didn‘t get WHY the bad guy(s) is/was doing what they were. I do love Samantha and Alice and Elijah and Jaxon. I love that little imaginary world in Salem. Looks like the author is beginning a boarding school series which I can get behind. Overall a pick, but not as good as the first. If you like the Titanic you probably will love this.

Not as good as the first in my opinion , not enough of Elijiah 🙄
BUT I really did enjoy book 2 and the storyline becoming creative with the Titanic and the history. I really enjoy this author 🤗

4 🌟 #YA #dogsoflitsy

Chrissyreadit I agree- I‘m enjoying her relationship with Elijah and missed him in the second book. But I do like this author. 1y

We are moving. After packing all books, I have ten boxes of nothing but books. I need a new bookshelf. Also, my new goal for the end of the year is to break 1000 books “read” on Goodreads. I need 57 books. Let‘s see if I can do it!! I am enjoying the tagged book. Here is a picture of Pupper who is crate training nicely!

3.75. I enjoyed the Titanic theme. And sincerely, who wouldn‘t love a ghost cat named Broome?
This is my very real cat, XENA...she‘s powerful in her own sort of way 😻

TheLibrarian How cute 😻 1y
BillBlume Don‘t let Xena fool you like Rose did Jack! There‘s room left on that bed! 1y
JanuarieTimewalker13 @TheLibrarian Thank you! @BillBlume I unfortunately have completely forgotten the film Titanic..I haven‘t seen it in 20 years (only saw it in theatre). I clearly need a bigger bed. Lol. Now I‘m kinda curious about Rose fooling Jack! 1y

I liked this one better than the first. I cant wait for another.

JanuarieTimewalker13 I did too! I‘m not sure where the ghost cat came from, loved that, but did she state that? Also, does it feel to you that this may be more than a duology? (edited) 1y
imabusybee @JanuarieTimewalker13 omg...I loved Broom the cat!! After reading the author notes I think she has enough history to write more...I really hope she does. 1y
JanuarieTimewalker13 So you‘re thinking the cat will be explained then? I can‘t remember if she was Elijah‘s cat. Yes, the author‘s notes were interesting! Maybe she‘ll go way back to the Mayflower! 1y

I‘m not a huge YA genre reader, but I really like How To Hang A Witch and I figured I‘d read the sequel while I continue to rest and recover from my second kidney stone of 2018. Thank you so much for all the well wishes on @Lynnsoprano ‘s posts. I read them all while I was in the hospital and it brought happy tears to my eyes. Love you all!!

Excellent. A bit slower to get into, but I think all the angsty magic isn't real garbage is over. I really enjoy the history and parallels to social issues of today.

Linear Cool good to know it's not going to be horrible, I've been putting off reading this after loving how to hang a witch. Because I was afraid it would take away from the first book 2y
BethM @Linear I was really nervous about that too. Once you're through the angst it's good. I'm not sure I love it as much bc Salem is my jam but I certainly didn't find it lacking. (edited) 2y

Here‘s my #LitsyPartyofOne / weekend plans! I started Haunting the Deep last night and I‘m flying through it. I plan to finish that one first. I also want to try to finish The Progeny this weekend. I hit a bit of a wall with it about halfway through, but I want to give it another try. I plan on continuing John Hodgman‘s Vacationland on audio whenever I can‘t hold a book in my hands. I‘m looking forward to spending a weekend with books! 📚📚

I give this maybe 3.85? I loved this as expected but there was just a few little issues I had: one was that I couldn‘t remember some things that happened in the first book so when they were briefly mentioned I was confused and wish the author briefly reminded the reader.

Tiny spoiler
And I didn‘t like Elijah/Sam it felt forced

But I loved the growing friendship between Sam and the Descendants and I really hope the author continues this series!

Ended #readathon on page 128. Only read 62 pages this time with my husband‘s birthday and my parents visiting so that‘s OK by me :) Unusually, I hardly even read any picture books because when grandma‘s here, I get bumped from my position as top storytime leader—which is also OK with me :) Hope everyone had a great Saturday and has a restful Sunday! 📚

P.S. Readathon on a birthday has its perks—molten chocolate lava cakes for one of my “snacks”!
