Hi all. Today’s post is the first ever book review by me. Yay! Today’s book is called My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent. This is a “definite read” rating from me.
It’s got everything I love in a book. A little romance, a lot of tension, and a character I can relate to.
The first line of the back cover reads. “Something is wrong with Kaylee Cavanaugh…” How can you not read a book with that line?
It’s about a girl who’s mother died when she was a baby and whose father abandoned her to live with her Aunt and Uncle, who while they aren’t exactly picturesque of Harry Potter, they are somewhat similar.
It starts off with the heronine, Kaylee, sneaking into a local bar. She runs into one of the popular boys from school, who—for reasons she can’t understand—actually wants to hang out with her, but things quickly go wrong.
She sees a girl and, for some reason, sees a shadow over her and has to fight this uncontrollable urge to scream her lungs out.
Then there’s the boy, Nash, who seems to not only realize why she needs to scream, but is able to calm her down, by mumbling to her.
Then it just keeps getting stranger, the girl is found dead—for no apparent reason—in the girls’ bathroom, and then shortly after, other girls from her school start dying, as well.
I won’t give away anymore, but this was an awesome read. I couldn’t put it down. It’s most definitely not anything close to anything you’ve ever read and best of all, it’s a paranormal that has nothing to do with werewolves or vampires.
This is a must have for any teenager, or teenager-at-heart, on your Christmas list.
