Summary: The last thing sixteen-year-old Jamie Watson–writer and great-great-grandson of the John Watson–wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s enigmatic, fiercely independent great-great-granddaughter, who’s inherited not just his genius but also his vices, volatile temperament, and expertly hidden vulnerability. Charlotte has been the object of his fascination for as long as he can remember–but from the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else.

Then a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Holmes stories, and Jamie and Charlotte become the prime suspects. Convinced they’re being framed, they must race against the police to conduct their own investigation. As danger mounts, it becomes clear that nowhere is safe and the only people they can trust are each other.

Equal parts tender, thrilling, and hilarious, A Study in Charlotte is the first in a trilogy brimming with wit and edge-of-the-seat suspense.”

My Review:

****Actual Rating 4.5 Stars****

I want to say thanks to HMH Books For Young Readers and Netgalley for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review. I really wanted this book because of the cover. That makes me a bad person. It had a pretty cover.  So I was hoping it would be good. I didn’t really expect it to be as good as it was. This book really got thrilling towards the ending and it made me want more. I want to say this is a stand alone but I’m not sure the way it ended. It started it off kinda of slow. Eventually got to the point where I couldn’t stop reading it. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes thrilling books.

This book has a lot of traveling it so the world building isn’t really there because it has actual settings.  It builds more in the characters. Both main characters Aubrey and Lena go through a lot of change. They become different people as they learned who their boyfriend. The secrets  and the betrayal of this book keeps you wanting to read. And the biggest of them all is the end of the book. I didn’t expect that ending. Also love how this was predictable at times but at the same time it wasn’t. I mean going into this you know Charlie wasn’t dead hence the title. Don’t worry I didn’t spoil anything. The writing style was great it had a really good flow. Nothing wasn’t important everything was connected and it.

“He’s Not The Only One With A Secret to Hide”-Carrie Underwood

I really do hope there is another book. If there is I hope they get Charlie thrown in prison. There is song that reminds of this book and I hope it happens. The scary thought about this book is this could actually happen.  Here is the song.

Lucy wants more from love than a fleeting romance, even if that means keeping her distance from her summertime neighbor and crush, Connor.
Then Superstorm Sandy tears apart her barrier island, briefly bringing together a local girl like herself and a vacationer like Connor. Except nothing is the same in the wake of the storm. And day after day, week after week, Lucy is left to pick up the pieces of her broken heart and broken home. Now with Memorial Day approaching and Connor returning, will it be a summer of fresh starts or second chances?”

 My Review:

****Actual Rating 3.5 Stars*****

I want to say thanks to Sourcebooks Fire and Netgalley for letting me read this This is another book that I requested because of the pretty cover. I should really stop doing this because it’s wild card. I honestly didn’t really know what the book was about going into it and I didn’t know if it would be any good. It was an okay book very cutesy romance book. It had the major cliche of a young adult books a love triangle. It wasn’t that great of a love triangle. Throughout this book you couldn’t help feel bad for the main character Lucy. I was really hoping as I read this book it would be like Jenny’s Han The Summer I Turned Pretty series but it isn’t. Which I guess it okay. I’m really glad that this book didn’t really have any books that I know of that I could compare it too. I wish it had more of an introduction because it was  confusing and slow paced it did pick up eventually. Overall a great book to start out summer.

My Review:

 

***Actual Rating 2.5 stars***

I want to say thank you to Amazon Publishing and Netgalley for letting me read this book I’m not sure on how I feel about this book still. I have the review for the other book coming. This book had a lot of detail and it started out really good. Then it awful route. The first thing that went wrong was it showed two different things happening. There was some type of bad guy happening. Then I found the main character very bland and boring. The reason I read this book was because I thought this was a retelling trilogy of Snow White. I was hoping for something great. I didn’t feel the story line and the main character connected at all I felt like she was distant.  The only thing got that was fairy tale related was her name meant Snow White. Other than that nothing. It wasn’t the mystery thriller I thought it was going to be.

 

A Magic Dark and Bright by Jenny Adams Perinovic

Title: A Magic Dark and Bright

Author: Jenny Adams Perinovic

Publisher: Bookish Girl Press

Publication Date: April 28 2015

Goodreads Synopsis: “She meant to help a ghost…not unleash a curse.

Amelia Dupree hasn’t seen the Woman in White since the night her brother died.

The ghost seems to have disappeared from the woods surrounding Asylum, Pennsylvania—that is, until Charlie Blue moves into the creepy old MacAllister House next door. Amelia can’t help liking him, even though she spent her childhood thinking his grandmother was a witch. And she definitely can’t ignore the connection between his arrival and the Woman in White’s return.

Then Amelia learns that the Woman in White is a prisoner, trapped between the worlds of the living and the dead. Devastated by the idea that her brother could be suffering a similar fate, Amelia decides to do whatever it takes to help the Woman in White find peace–and Charlie agrees to help her.

But when Amelia’s classmates start to drown in the Susquehanna River, one right after another, rumors swirl as people begin to connect the timing of Charlie’s arrival with the unexplained deaths. As Charlie and Amelia uncover the dark history of Asylum, they realize they may have unleashed an unspeakable evil. One they have to stop before everything they love is destroyed.”

Review: I want to say thanks to Bookish Girl Press and Netgalley for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review.

***Rating 4.5 Stars***

 Every since a young age Amelia was able to see a ghost called the Women in White. The night her brother died the ghost appearance stop. Until her brother Mark died. So when Charlie shows up the ghost shows up.  Spooky?! Huh. I loved this book so much it had me on the very first page of the book. This book is very good. I’m not sure on how to describe this book. It is very different from other books I have read. It kinda had the Mara Dyer feel to it. Every so often it had flashbacks. But these flashbacks had a purpose were very well written not had confusing as Mara Dyer.  What could have made this a five star book would be that it picked up a little more. Nothing really happened as a villain until the end of the book.

So these girls keeps dying and everyone thinks its  suicide when  it really is a murders . Everyone except a few people think its Charlie. Charlie isn’t a book crush no but he seems very sweet. He gets more dark and moody towards the end he says he isn’t Amelia’s boyfriend. I was crushed because they are made for each other. Like no joke they need to get together. Amelia went through a lot of developing  throughout the book. She broke through that shell she had from her brother’s death. And it made her better person and a better female lead character.

The ending of the book was like wow. It had the biggest cliffhanger ever. I can’t wait for the more books in this series. I hope to Charlie and Amelia get together. I hope they beat Marin and maybe even get some closure for Mark’s death. I also hope to find out what Marin wants with them.
