So! I read this book for the YA Bound Book Tours blog tour and it was a LOT of fun. Reading other peoples reviews about the same book, finding out what they liked and did not like about the book….it was a great experience. Also, it introduced me to so many cool bloggers! This is my first time doing something like this and my excitement levels are pretty high, so lets just get to it! 🙂

When Cassie agrees to go on a date with her gorgeous new neighbor, she doesn’t expect the night to end with a glimpse into eternity. Within twenty-four hours she discovers not only are young women being brutally murdered around her beloved town, but an ancient evil is using her new neighbor like a puppet to do the killing.Knowing the police won’t believe her without solid proof, she makes it her mission to find the evidence they need. Add to that how her cat has started talking to her, along with seeing ghosts around town, and it’s no surprise that she’s beginning to question her sanity.This is the first book in the New Sight Series – paranormal series about a young woman whose eyes are opened to the hidden world around her and her compulsion to help the dead seek answers and justice.Imaginatively entertaining with light humor and a quickening pace, C. L. Clark’s interesting new twist on paranormal fantasy is a book series that readers will not want to pass up.
Well! This book was something different for me. Can’t say that I did not enjoy it! The story is, that a young woman has all these supernatural things happening to her and there are a bunch of murders going around. What to do? Oh, I know! Investigate and be all badass about it! Lol. But seriously, this book was a nice blend of paranormal and mystery with a healthy dose of hilariousness and action. There was so much sarcastic humor that it made some of the slow-moving scenes fun.
This book was also very weird ( I mean, there are talking cats! ) and the writing style fell a little flat for me. The characters were somewhat distant but I could form a stong connection with the main character. Needless to say, she was my favorite! Cass was very relatable and it was admirable how quickly she got accustomed to all the craziness that was happening. We did not have to see a lot of exaggerated shock and too much of, “What is happening to me?!”, if you know what I mean.
You are a character of a fictional book! Act like it!
I liked how the story progressed and how we just jumped into the world pretty quick. I would compare this book with Maggie Steifvater’s The Raven Boys: Not exactly a fast ,easy read – so if you are in a reading slump, don’t go for this – if you need a unique paranormal read with unimaginable things happening, I would recommend this one!
That is all I have to say about this book! I am excited to hear what the other bloggers thought!
