Howdy there everybody!
How’s your week going? We’re halfway there, so keep on trucking!
As usual, on this day of the week I do a meme called WWW Wednesday.
This meme is a challenge where you simply share what you’re reading, what you’ve recently finished, and what you hope to read in the near future.
The meme is currently handled by Taking On A World of Words, and anybody can participate.
Simply read the 3 W questions below and answer them should you want to:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
When David Caine, a celebrated skeptic of the supernatural, is invited by an old friend to spend a month in “the most haunted house in Virginia,” he believes the case will be like any other. But the Alexander House is different. Built by a 1700s land baron to contain the madness and depravity of his eldest son, the house is plagued by shadows of the past and the lingering taint of bloodshed. David is haunted, as well. For twenty-two years ago, he turned away the woman he loved, and she took her life in sorrow. And David suspects she’s followed him to the Alexander House.
Opinion so far:
I honestly don’t completely know how I feel about this book just yet.
When I started it, there was a lot of noise around me that put me in a bad mood. It’s getting pretty darn interesting, it’s just too soon to say anything since I’m only about 10-15% in.
Cassidy Blake’s parents are The Inspecters, 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 Inspecters 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.
I truly loved reading this book. Adventure, the paranormal, and a great plot don’t even begin to cover how much I love this book.
I’m looking forward to reading the next one soon, maybe even this month, if the library can get me off the hold list.

Opinion so far:
Hmm this one’s a toughie. I have several choices.
- Elfangor’s Journey: I desperately miss Animorphs. Taking a day or two for it wouldn’t kill me, so I’m gravitated to read this next.
- Station Eleven: I’ve never read a book by this author and this one came from the library. From what I understand, a gentler apocalypse concept, which still seems creepy.
- Pet Sematary: I keep pushing this one back because, well, it’s Stephen King. Hordes of people have read this book, so I don’t necessarily feel that my review will really help readers find a new book as much as reading an indie book will. Still, I’d like to read this, just on the very end edge of my Festival of Frights.
That’s a Wrap!
Okay peeps, that’s my WWW Wednesday for this week.
