Teen Book Review: The Nine Lives Of Chloe King

The Nine Lives Of Chloe King

Liz Braswell/Celia Thomson

Book Reivew By Jasmine Roeder

 

I have wanted to read The Nine Lives Of Chloe King for a while now. I have watched the series but have not had the chance to read the book. I checked it out today, so I think I will start reading it soon. I think this book would be perfect for you if you like to read about supernatural and adventurous stories. The book is about an ordinary teenage girl whose name is Chloe King. She goes to school, hangs out with friends, and does all the usual things for a teenager. When she turns sixteen, she starts feeling like she isn’t normal and has rapid reflexes and visions. If that wasn’t weird enough, she even had claws, which showed her that she wasn’t an ordinary teenage girl. When she goes to school one day, she is still trying to wrap her head around the fact that she has powers and thinks she is all alone until she meets Jasmine and Alek. They know about her secret, and they have powers too. They help her train, tell her why she is like this, and even reveal that she has nine lives. She is then said that she is a protector and that people will be after her but will nine lives be enough for her? One day she goes from being a normal girl, and the next, she goes to fighting for her life while having nine lives. She meets more people who become her friends and needs to protect them without spilling everything. While dealing with this nine-lives drama, she is still trying to figure out what happened to her missing father. What will happen with all these secrets reveal themselves? You should definitely get it today if you are interested just by the review. This book includes all three parts of the series in one book. Below are the titles of each piece of her story in order if you get them separately.

Book Review: Lumberjanes Vol 1

Lumberjanes: Volume 1

A Review by Kendra Ellison

I have been wanting read Lumberjanes:Volume 1 for a while now. Since being busy with life I have not been able to read as much as I would like. I have been sticking with audiobooks on my commute and graphic novel since they can be a quick read. Lumberjanes series is just that. Fast-paced story full of adventure and friendship.

Lumberjanes is about a group of five girls (Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley) at summer camp that faces supernatural obstacles often times with their counselor. Each of the girls have their strengths to overcome these obstacles that tests their friendship and commitment to be a Lumberjane.

At first, I thought this would be a modern coming-of-age summer camp adventure, but I did not expect the supernatural elements added to the stories. Reading the graphic novel is enjoyable read during my downtime. My favorite character of the series is April. She maybe small, but is strong. Never underestimate when she and her friends are in danger she is a fierce protector not to mention competitive. I do not want to give away too much detail, but if had to guess I have feeling that the supernatural elements of the story leads to a bigger picture toward the end of the series. Even though this is a twenty book series, you will read through them quickly that it won’t feel like that long of a series. I recommend the Lumberjanes: Volume 1 if you like to read about friendship, adventure, and the supernatural then this would be for you. If you are looking to read something different from what you normally read or need to read something fun then I would highly recommend! I am currently reading Lumberjanes: Volume 4. It definitely snapped me out of the reading slump (for now)!

Spooky YA Books

To get ready for Halloween, we’re posting spooky recommendations all October! Today we have some spooky YA reads to get you in the spirit!

 

The Dark has been waiting for far too long, and it won’t stay hidden any longer.

Something is wrong in Snakebite, Oregon. Teenagers are disappearing, some turning up dead, the weather isn’t normal, and all fingers seem to point to TV’s most popular ghost hunters who have just returned to town. Logan Ortiz-Woodley, daughter of TV’s ParaSpectors, has never been to Snakebite before, but the moment she and her dads arrive, she starts to get the feeling that there’s more secrets buried here than they originally let on.

Ashley Barton’s boyfriend was the first teen to go missing, and she’s felt his presence ever since. But now that the Ortiz-Woodleys are in town, his ghost is following her and the only person Ashley can trust is the mysterious Logan. When Ashley and Logan team up to figure out who—or what—is haunting Snakebite, their investigation reveals truths about the town, their families, and themselves that neither of them are ready for. As the danger intensifies, they realize that their growing feelings for each other could be a light in the darkness.

New York Times bestselling author Adalyn Grace brings to life a highly romantic, Gothic-infused world of wealth, desire, and betrayal.

Orphaned as a baby, nineteen-year-old Signa has been raised by a string of guardians, each more interested in her wealth than her well-being—and each has met an untimely end. Her remaining relatives are the elusive Hawthornes, an eccentric family living at Thorn Grove, an estate both glittering and gloomy. Its patriarch mourns his late wife through wild parties, while his son grapples for control of the family’s waning reputation and his daughter suffers from a mysterious illness. But when their mother’s restless spirit appears claiming she was poisoned, Signa realizes that the family she depends on could be in grave danger and enlists the help of a surly stable boy to hunt down the killer.

However, Signa’s best chance of uncovering the murderer is an alliance with Death himself, a fascinating, dangerous shadow who has never been far from her side. Though he’s made her life a living hell, Death shows Signa that their growing connection may be more powerful—and more irresistible—than she ever dared imagine.

From Ryan La Sala, the wildly popular author of Reverie, comes a twisted and tantalizing horror novel set amidst the bucolic splendor of a secluded summer retreat.

Mars has always been the lesser twin, the shadow to his sister Caroline’s radiance. But when Caroline dies under horrific circumstances, Mars is propelled to learn all he can about his once-inseparable sister who’d grown tragically distant.

Mars’s genderfluidity means he’s often excluded from the traditions — and expectations — of his politically-connected family. This includes attendance at the prestigious Aspen Conservancy Summer Academy where his sister poured so much of her time. But with his grief still fresh, he insists on attending in her place.

What Mars finds is a bucolic fairytale not meant for him. Folksy charm and sun-drenched festivities camouflage old-fashioned gender roles and a toxic preparatory rigor. Mars seeks out his sister’s old friends: a group of girls dubbed the Honeys, named for the beehives they maintain behind their cabin. They are beautiful and terrifying — and Mars is certain they’re connected to Caroline’s death.

But the longer he stays at Aspen, the more the sweet mountain breezes give way to hints of decay. Mars’s memories begin to falter, bleached beneath the relentless summer sun. Something is hunting him in broad daylight, toying with his mind. If Mars can’t find it soon, it will eat him alive.

Hollywood history, mystery, murder, mayhem, and delicious romance collide in this unputdownable thriller from master storyteller Katie Alender.

Willa is freaking out. It seems like she’s seeing things. Like a dead body in her swimming pool. Frantic messages on her walls. A reflection that is not her own. It’s almost as if someone—or something—is trying to send her a message.

Meanwhile, a killer is stalking Los Angeles—a killer who reenacts famous movie murder scenes. Could Willa’s strange visions have to do with these unsolved murders? Or is she going crazy? And who can she confide in? There’s Marnie, her new friend who may not be totally trustworthy. And there’s Reed, who’s ridiculously handsome and seems to get Willa. There’s also Wyatt, who’s super smart but unhealthily obsessed with the Hollywood Killer.

All Willa knows is, she has to confront the possible-ghost in her house, or she just might lose her mind . . . or her life.
