Once again a Crow Investigations book made me stay up too late. The tension in this one and the flow and the hints of possible things coming in the future all blended together to make a really exciting and fast read.
This was another weird and fun romp. I loved the touches of old Hollywood and the 1960s hippie scene. There were a lot of great chase scenes and some really tense moments to keep things going, too. I would definitely read more of these adventures if they come along.
I don’t even know what to write about this one. There was so much magic inside my head is still full of it, and I have questions that were never meant to be answered. It was beautiful. I love these worlds of this series so much! And it really did have to go the way it went, but I really wish I could change it. That’s the beauty of this story.
This book was charming and weird and so much fun. It moved very slowly in a lot of places, but that was perfect. The whole thing was like developing a relationship with these people while also watching them develop a relationship. I really enjoyed the parts that were written as online chats and texts, too. It added weight to the illusion of living alongside of these characters as their relationships grew.
I’m crying. Maybe I should wait to write a review, but I won’t. I want to give this book more than five stars, but I suppose five will do.
There was so much beauty in this book, and the ending was gorgeous with a tinge of bittersweet, and I felt like I was home in some of these story places. I only hope the turtles don’t miss her too much there at the end.
I wish I could read this book again for the first time. It was beautiful and real, even the magic. I loved all the 80s music references (and I see that we were sorely deprived by not getting to know about all of the Latin artists that were making music at that time–I have some music shopping to do!). The characters felt like people I know, and I loved all of the details of everyone’s lives. I was living in that world from the first page.
This was a wonderful cozy paranormal story. I loved every bit of it. Mysteries and ghosts and some quirky characters. I will definitely be visiting this world again. Also, while a primary mystery was solved so there was a satisfying conclusion, there were so many other things left open for me to wonder about! It was very well done and has me very excited to read more and find out what’s going to happen with some of those ongoing mysteries and problems.
I loved the rhythm of the language in this story. It was like a fairytale in so many ways, and yet it was much richer than that. And I loved finding out how Jack and Jill ended up at the school. There’s so much in the first book that has more weight now. I will probably have to reread it.
There were parts of this story I really liked, and I especially really like the premise of the series (psychics and conspiracies and all sorts of cool stuff!). The middle was really long and draggy, though, and it kept throwing me out of the story so I was had to take breaks from reading it. I will probably try at least one or two more books from this series, though, to see how they are. There’s enough good stuff in there to give it another go.
