City of Ghosts, Volume 1
City of Ghosts, Volume 1 | Victoria Schwab
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Schwab comes a sweeping, spooky, evocative adventure, perfect for fans of Stranger Things.Ever since Cass almost drowned (okay, she did drown, but she doesn't like to think about it), she can pull back the Veil that separates the living from the dead . . . and enter the world of spirits. Her best friend is even a ghost. So things are already pretty strange. But they're about to get much stranger. When Cass's parents start hosting a TV show about the world's most haunted places, the family heads off to Edinburgh, Scotland. Here, graveyards, castles, and secret passageways teem with restless phantoms. And when Cass meets a girl who shares her gift, she realizes how much she still has to learn about the Veil -- and herself. And she'll have to learn fast. The city of ghosts is more dangerous than she ever imagined.

City of Ghosts is the perfect starting point for young readers and even adults who are interested in ghost stories. There is just enough of a spooky feeling and close encounters to draw readers in but not overwhelm them. This is a fast-paced, enjoyable read and a great series to start during October. I highly recommend this to fans of ghost stories.

TLuvs They say, if you want to read for easy entertainment, then you should read down a few levels. That's when I go to Middle Grade books and series, like this VS trilogy. I loved this book! VS is so good a character development no matter which genre she writes in. This plot kept me interested, it gave great learning of life lessons for new minds and the wrap up ending was perfect! Loved it! 2mo

Listened to this one on audiobook, mostly during a long drive. I'm not a great ear-reader, so that might be part of my middling response, but maybe also that I'm not the target audience. Others have loved it, so take that FWIW.

First in a series and it‘s a super quick read that was highly entertaining. This is geared to YA so reads a little different from her adult reads. Still amazing world building and fun characters. I even laughed a couple of times. #bookspin #readingchallenge2022 @TheAromaofBooks

My first middle grade Schwab book. It was such a fun and fast-paced/ quick read!

And I don't know if it's just me, but I always find these little things that connect the Schwab books I've read so far (except for Addie LaRue, such an outlier).
- Villains and Verity: same universe?
- Villains and Gallant: "safe"
- Villains and this one: the NDE thing

Maybe they're intentional or just me wishing for the connections, but I like them!

KristiAhlers This is on my #bookspin list. I may start this one today based on your review! I do love her writing. 8mo

This was a surprisingly cute story. I have noticed that I have been enjoying a lot of younger-aged books lately (hopefully I can recommend some of them to my niece - when the time comes). This book had a great little story of friendship, some mystery, and suspense and just overall adorable!

This was such a cute book. I have to continue to the series soon! Thanks again @Avanders. It was a nice little mix of friendship, thrills, ghosts. Just had a bit of everything I like in a story :)

Picture of my new plant, Kyle, because he is so pretty! (And for attention) #PlantsOfLitsy #PlantMomma

AmyG Ha. I name my plants, too. What is Kyle. He looks like my Evan.😂 (edited) 12mo
ElizaMarie @AmyG I am told he is a Wandering Dude (used to be known as a Wandering Jew) I know nothing about plants. I saw it at this shop and the lady gave it to me. 12mo
AmyG I don‘t know anything about plants either. I am very new to this . I think mine may be a Jew, too. (edited) 12mo

Crazeedi @ElizaMarie really?? Someone changed the name of this plant? @AmyG it's a wandering jew, I used to have one, I loved mine, it was easy to care for 12mo
AmyG Thanks @Crazeedi …it has been easy to care for. I just need to repot it for better drainage. 12mo
Cheshirecat913 I have a like 4 or 5 of those plants potted now, all off a sprig I found in another plant I bought. They are so easy to care for and easily propagated. Also love Schwab! 12mo
Avanders Yay you‘re welcome! Also, beautiful plant! ♥️♥️ 12mo
ElizaMarie @Crazeedi The lady who gave him to me said they had changed the name for our PC culture. But again, I know nothing of plants, other than this fellow is super cute and I am scared to pot him and kill him, but I will be trying this soon. 12mo
ElizaMarie @Cheshirecat913 Ooo that give me hope! 12mo

This is a fun little ghost mystery. In this first installment, Cassidy and her fam are hunting ghosts in Edinburgh. Except she's the only one that can actually see ghosts. It made me more intent on visiting Edinburgh in the not too distant future. The #audiobook is well done and only about 5 hours. I immediately downloaded the next book. I hardly ever do that.

Looking for a series to read during spooky season that‘s not TOO scary? I recommend the Cassidy Blake series! Each book takes place in a different haunted city (Edinburgh, Paris, and New Orleans) and they‘re a lot of fun!

‘You are never too old to read YA/ MG fiction. But I really wish I could have read it earlier. A page turning spooky story about a girl & her ghost friend. Can‘t wait to start the next one in the series. Narration is good. 4 🌟5hrs

Cassidy can see ghosts and step behind the veil after a near-death experience. Along with her best friend, Jacob, who is a ghost, she finds out there is more to her ability while visiting Edinburgh. I enjoyed this spooky middle grade novel and will hopefully get to the next one this month. #authoramonth

What a fun book! Fast paced and engaging enough to keep my attention while I had a lot of distractions. The Edinburgh setting didn‘t hurt either!

In fact, I‘m blowing up whatever plans I may have had for the #OutstandingOctober readathon in order to continue with the series. I‘m off to the library to pick up the next book!

An enjoyable middle grade story about a girl who can see ghosts and travel in the veil (the in between place where ghosts reside). Her best friend, Jacob, is a ghost. Though not very scary to an adult it is just enough creepy for younger readers. A perfect choice for this time of year. 4⭐ 🧡📖🧡🎃🖤☕🖤
