Reading is my passion! I'll read anything if it looks good & sounds good. I'm also a sucker for books with unique settings & I'd choose Hardcovers over E-Books any day! : ) -Empress Reece

"The Unbelievables"

The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts (The Unbelievables Book #1) - K.C. Tansley

Do you believe in "The Unbelievables?" I definitely think that is a more fitting title. I even prefer just the series name, "The Unbelievables" better then I do "The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts." It just doesn't seem catchy enough to me, but hey that's just my opinion and really the only thing I didn't care for about this book. It was a fantastic debut!! The story was very entertaining and well-written. I don't want to call it an actual "ghost story" because it doesn't have the creepy, scary, suspense of a true ghost story but it is about ghosts, a 129-year-old murder and a family curse. I thought it was more of a fun, adventure/mystery story. There is also a little bit of time-travel in it too. I normally don't read time-travel stories because in my experience, more often then not, they aren't written very well, but that's not the case here. The author, K.C. Tansley, does an exceptional job articulating her ideas and putting pen to paper. She kept the dynamics simple and it worked. Well done!! I can't wait to see where "The Unbelievables" lead us next!
