The Dead and Buried


The Dead and Buried is a YA supernatural/horror mystery by Kim Harrington.

Jade knew that moving into the large, beautiful house seemed outside of her family’s ordinary budget, but she was distracted with happy thoughts of going to a high school with more than just a few classmates to think too much about it.

But when her first day gets interrupted by whispers and awkward silences, especially one involving a guy with killer blue eyes that was shyly friendly until clamming up at the knowledge of her new address, Jade knows something is going on.

Then Jade’s little brother starts telling her about a girl he sees in his room.

It doesn’t take long for the truth the come out.

The house was affordable because a teenage girl died in it last year.

A popular, gorgeous girl who ruled the school and was dating the guy with killer blue eyes the time of her untimely death.

And now the house is haunted.

Jade soon finds out that this dead girl wasn’t very nice in life… and definitely isn’t in death…

I absolutely adored Kim Harrington’s Clarity books: Clarity and Perception. I still can’t help but hope there will be more featuring that awesome character that reminded me of a psychically gifted Veronica Mars. But in the meantime, I’ll take what I can get from the author!

The Dead and Buried was a diverting read for sure.

Jade is a nice, confident, self-assured lead with interests that are unique (always admirable to have characters that have hobbies outside of boy-craziness) and a tension with her stepmother that is believable. It gave a good depth to her.

I didn’t feel like The Dead and Buried was AS dynamic, funny and engrossing as the Clarity books, but there was a creepiness, romance, and intrigue all its own here. It’s an entertaining, spooky ghost story done well.

Maybe I just wanted a bit more, or maybe I just really wanted Clarity. But The Dead and Buried was still very, very good and I am still looking forward for more from Kim Harrington!

Real Live Boyfriends

Real Live Boyfriends is a YA contemporary novel by E. Lockhart, and the fourth novel in the Ruby Oliver quartet.

Here we are on the last day of “Ruby Oliver Week” and if you aren’t already reading these books – well, why not?

But I’m more than sure most of you are – and hopefully you’re all caught up, and therefore not at risk of being spoiled by my review of Real Live Boyfriends. You’ve been warned!

Ruby Oliver is beginning her senior year of high school with a real live boyfriend: Noel.

At least she thought she was.

After having spent the rest of junior year and the beginning of summer being fully in love (okay, they never actually said the word, but the vibes were strongly in that direction), Ruby is now confused.

Again.

When Noel went to visit his brother in New York for a while, almost every day they talked on the phone and exchanged funny emails. She never once felt insecure.

Until all of a sudden – communication stopped. Ruby would call and he wouldn’t answer. She’d leave a voice mai…

Interview with Joanna Philbin!

Today we have an extra special guest! Joanna Philbin, author of The Daughters series, is here to tell us about the fourth and (*sniff*) final book in the series - The Daughters Join the Party - as well as answer some other questions!

Welcome to the Bibliophile Support Group, Joanna! We're happy to have you!

So, for anybody who hasn't read the first three books in The Daughters series (read my reviews here: The Daughters, The Daughters Break the Rules, The Daughters Take the Stage) can you give everybody a general idea of what they're about?

Lizzie, Carina, and Hudson are best friends who are normal fourteen year-old girls in almost every way. Except for one: each girl has a parent who is incredibly famous. And her parent’s fame complicates her life in a big way. Lizzie’s mom is a supermodel, but Lizzie isn’t what most people would call “beautiful” – in fact, she’s what most people might call “unusual-looking.” How do you deal with having a supermodel mother when you don’t …

#YAStandsFor Daily Social Challenge... Day 5!

In my final day of participating in the I Read YA Week celebration (you can keep partying, it goes on through Monday!), I found myself presented with a new challenge of: Create a graphic showcasing an inspirational YA quote.

I'm not super tech savvy and I've never created a graphic before. But with just a little Google searching and a download of an app, I was able to create this:
