City of Ghosts
City of Ghosts | Victoria Schwab
Cassidy Blake's parents are The Inspectres, a (somewhat inept) ghost-hunting team. But Cass herself can REALLY see ghosts. In fact, her best friend, Jacob, just happens to be one.When The Inspectres head to ultra-haunted Edinburgh, Scotland, for their new TV show, Cass -- and Jacob -- come along. In Scotland, Cass is surrounded by ghosts, not all of them friendly. Then she meets Lara, a girl who can also see the dead. But Lara tells Cassidy that as an In-betweener, their job is to send ghosts permanently beyond the Veil. Cass isn't sure about her new mission, but she does know the sinister Red Raven haunting the city doesn't belong in her world. Cassidy's powers will draw her into an epic fight that stretches through the worlds of the living and the dead, in order to save herself.

This was a really fun middle grade ghost story - it kept me entertained while doing some tedious tasks at work the last couple days. #audiobooks

Perfect little read for my Halloween pick. One warning, it made me miss Scotland and want to go back for more Ghost hunting. A good spooky middle grade choice with chills but not gore.

🎧 When I started listening to this book I was thinking is this YA 🤨 ... so I figured I‘d go look and NOPE it‘s for 8-10 year olds. And I loved it!! Only 6 hours. Fun! Quick! A cross between Veronica Mars & Ghost Whisperer! I liked both so I said YES when Hoopla gave me the option of taking out Book 2 when I returned Book 1! Probably great for a family read! Harry Potter references popped up a couple times throughout the book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️2/3.

I wanted to listen to a fun ghost story for Halloween and this hit the spot. 1. Takes place in Scotland 2. Friendly ghost bestfriend 3. Not so friendly ghosts too. 4. A different take on seeing ghosts and slipping "beyond the veil" Have already started to listen to the second book in the series!

I‘ll admit that I‘m not really much of a fan of Halloween, but Litsy has made me appreciate the fun of a good ghost story at this time of year. This year the #middlegrade books I‘ve read have been my favorites.

I loved the setting of Edinburgh in this story and the Harry Potter references. The development of the friendship between Cassidy and Jacob as she learned more about herself and her abilities was fascinating. 👻

I wasn‘t surprised that I‘d like this one. I‘ve enjoyed VIctoria Schwab‘s adult novels Vengeful and Viscious a lot. When I was putting together my TBR for #WitchAThon I was happy to see that this fit in with the 2nd choice for communing with the dead. Plus it would be a quick read. The story ended up being a lot of fun especially when the setting is mixed with various references to JK Rowling and Harry Potter. Definitely will read the next one.

After nearly dying, Cass can see ghosts; in fact, her best friend is a ghost. When her family heads to Edinburgh, though, she learns about the dangers of the Veil.

This was a great story. There is something about stories in which a thread connects or anchors the living to their bodies that appeals to me. I look forward to the sequel and I‘m curious about the mounting tension around Jacob.

The cover caught my eye so I decided to check it out from the library. I'm glad I did! This was a great read and not that scary (okay maybe her interaction with the Raven was intense!). The story is about a girl who sees ghosts and can go to the other side where the ghosts resides. Sort of like an Odd Thomas story for children but the story flows so it can be read by any age.

First Halloween-season read done! 🎃👻 Although this story takes place in summer, it‘s all about ghosts. I picked it up and couldn‘t put it down. I audio-read it—following along in the book at times while listening to the audiobook. Reba Buhr does an excellent job narrating.

Mainly set in Edinburgh, I now have bumped up Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 on my list of must-see. If I could, I‘d get on a flight tomorrow.

VE Schwab is going to be at the Bookmarks festival in Winston-Salem on Saturday, promoting the second book in the Cassidy Blake series, Tunnel of Bones. Because I'm dying to meet her, I grabbed City of Ghosts on audio. This was a good story, part ghost tale, part love letter to Edinburgh. I love Cassidy and Jacob, and I love Schwab's writing style, just as much with her middle grade novels as her “adult“ novels.

Spooky but not too spooky. It's a ghost story with a fun twist and set mostly in Scotland. Characters from different backgrounds are included but book does not made a big deal of it. This one's going to be a nice addition to my middleschool classroom library.
