ARC Review: The Wrong Girl (Freak House #1) by C.J. Archer

ARC Review: The Wrong Girl (Freak House #1) by C.J. Archer

June 1, 2013 1 Comment Regina

When I saw the cover of this book, I gave my imaginary friend a high-five.  An ominous looking house with a stylishly Gothic girl standing in front? Yes, please! Hannah Smith, a fiery, auburn haired 18-year-old, has been living in an attic as the companion of Lady Violet Wade for the past 15 years of her life. Hannah and Lady Violet both have ”conditions” that have kept them tucked away as outcasts and shunned by […]

This is a short and sweet shout out to C.J. Archer’s Spirit Medium Trilogy published last year. It’s been a while since I read these books, but felt like they deserved a rec since I will be reviewing her latest book, The Wrong Girl soon. I’ve always loved the idea of Mediums and things of the seance sort whether in books or film, so last October I went searching for something with that theme in mind. I […]

Regina’ s Review: Spirit was a bit of a ride for me. For most of this story I felt like I was breathing with cinder blocks on my chest, waiting for the next drop. I felt like I was behind a glass wall, screaming at Hunter to make the right decisions. I wanted an insta-stick worm hole that I could toss on the wall and step through to guide his thoughts.  This roller coaster ride of […]

Regina’ s Review: That moment when you’re reading a book, and a couple of chapters in something “clicks” and leaves you <insert sharp intake of breath here> Breathless? Yeah, this installment in the Elemental series gives bold significance to the title from the start. This book had a different feel than the rest for me. I felt more like a voyeur, vicariously experiencing something forbidden through the thoughts of Nick Merrick, Gabriel’s identical twin. Nick is […]

Regina’s Review: Gabriel Merrick has consumed me. Gabriel Merrick starts out as a guilty pleasure. Like a song you hear on the radio that you hate, but can’t get it out of your head so you end up actually liking it.  On first impression, he is a (very attractive) prig and deserves to be slapped for his crude humor and ne’er do well ways. But smart girls like me (and Brigid Kemmerer) know there’s always some sexy […]

Regina’s Review: I was reluctant to do a review on a book strictly about Hunter from the Elemental series because I’ve been holding a grudge. When Hunter’s character was first introduced in Storm (Elemental#1), I was gung-ho Team Chris and realized Hunter was going to put the Isosceles in C&B’s relationship. Hunter was introduced pretty early in the story, and I was desperate for Chris and Becca to gain more ground with each other before […]

If you are like me, you are always wondering, “Do I really need to read the 0.5 or 1.5 or 5.5 novella? Is it worth my .99 cents???” More often than not, the answer has been “YES!”  for me. Elemental is worth the read (and buck) not because it is integral to understanding the rest of the series, but because it is integral to understanding Michael’s character.  Insightful and romantic, Brigid Kemmerer sweeps me off my […]

Brigid Kemmerer’s Elemental series was something I went into with low expectations despite the high ratings I saw on Goodreads. I thought to myself, “Guys with elemental powers? I’m not sure if I can get into lame superhero stuff right now. I need some high-grade material after the trip I just took.” I’m glad I drowned those thoughts. I was coming off of a really good book “high” and needed to read something that could […]
