The Casquette Girls
The Casquette Girls | Alys Arden
After the storm of the century rips apart New Orleans, sixteen-year-old Adele Le Moyne and her father are among the first to return. Adele wants nothing more than to resume her normal life, but with the silent city resembling a war zone, a parish-wide curfew, and mysterious new faces lurking in the abandoned French Quarter, normal needs a new definition. Strange events even for New Orleans lead Adele to an attic that has been sealed for three hundred years. The chaos she accidentally unleashes threatens not only her but also everyone she knows. Caught in a hurricane of myths and monsters, Adele must untangle a web of magic that weaves the climbing murder rate back to her own ancestors. But who can you trust in a city where everyone has secrets and keeping them can mean life or death? Unless you re immortal. Revised edition: This edition of "The Casquette Girls" includes editorial revisions. "

I loved this book! It was a slow build to emphasize the setting. I usually get bored with books that do this but I appreciated it. I loved that it was fantasy mixed with a little mystery as well. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Very close to being 5 stars. I generally do not like books this long. This one took a while to get the story rolling....kinda dragged out in the beginning, and in other parts. Very unique story and the characters were well developed. Many twists and turns. It was woven masterfully. I wonder what will happen next!#bookstagram #bookworms #ilovereading #youngadult #ya #fantasy #bookblog #bookreview #thecasquettegirls #read #nola #thecasquettegirls

+6 #teamstoker #scarathlon @thereadingmermaid

With witches, vampires, voodoo magic and pirates this book weaves a tapestry of New Orleans history and lore. When Adele returns home after a huge storm has devastated the city she finds an eerily quiet ruin of it's former self. As she rebuilds her life she discovers magic she didn't know she had and finds herself caught in a centuries old battle between witches & vamps that culminates on Halloween.

#LitsyPSA: This is 99 cents and it‘s also available on KU. The second and third books are on KU too - and it looks like the second book might be 99 cents right now. I remember liking this one but it‘s been a couple of years and I‘ve not kept up with the series. It‘s more YA, has vampires and witches, a curse, and there might be a love triangle developing. I may have to revisit this one soon!

Celebrating the last hour of Mardi Gras! New Orleans is one of my absolute favorite places in the US! So much history, culture, music, legend, & mystery. 💚💛💜🎷🎭👑 If you haven‘t heard the story of the Casket Girls of the Ursuline Convent (while on a ghost tour), you are missing out! 🧛🏻‍♀️🤣 Decided to dive into this series, since I believe it has a good New Orleans feel & it‘s one I haven‘t read. Do you have a favorite New Orleans story?

If anyone is interested in prime day book deals, I highly recommend the Casquette Girls. Excellent, unique story with amazing world building and character development. It's set in magical New Orleans!

jpmcwisemorgan This one is good! I‘ve not gone back to read the rest of the series, I think the second one is out, maybe more. 1y

✨Good afternoon everyone!🌞 Look at these beautiful books that I need to read!! 😍I‘ll admit (all the time) that I‘m a sucker for a beautiful cover, but of course I want the story to be good as well. It has to still sound interesting for me to buy it. QOTD: Have you ever bought a book just because the cover is pretty or does it have to sound interesting too?✨

JoScho I always love your photos. You take so much time and effort to make them awesom 😍 2y
AngelErin @JoScho Thank you! ♥️♥️ I stand on a chair when I take them and I‘m pretty sure my neighbors saw me the other day and were laughing at me. 😂😂😂 2y

There is no way that you won't fall in love with these books! The characters, the plot, and of course the folklore of New Orleans.

I reread "The Casquette Girls" by Alys Arden together with her an a few other Fans in preparation of the second Book "The Romeo Catcher". It was even more fun the second time, because Alys answered so many of our questions and told us so much more of new orleans.

This book will keep you on the edge of your seat through out the entire thing. This author is a beautiful writer and knows exactly how to end a book 😉 it consists of vampires, witches, and going back and fourth between Adele's story and her ancestors but it ties up in the end 😌#books #booknerd

“Sometimes at night the darkness and silence weigh upon me… We need to live in a state of suspended animation like a work of art, in a state of enchantment. We have to succeed in loving so greatly that we live outside of time, detached.”

The Casquette Girls | Alys Arden

He finally unlatched his teeth from her throat and then staggered as he tried to stand, nearly falling backwards. “Madonna mia, how much does this woman drink?” he slurred. “Opium too. There are more toxins in her blood than in a Parisian sewer.”

New Orleans was wonderfully represented in this paranormal tale. I enjoyed how Arden wove the history and legend into the story. http://bambi-unbridled.blogspot.com/2017/04/audiobook-review-casquette-girls-by....

New series, but no mention of anything forthcoming. This book could be a stand-alone story, although there are some hints of what's to come for the series. It's an easy, draw you in kind of read that flashes back to 1700s Paris/New Orleans to modern-day New Orleans. The author mentions the Storm that destroys New Orleans and sets the story in motion. I enjoyed the magic and myth component - nothing like adding to New Orleans mystique!

Ok, I try really hard not to start series but I couldn't pass up a story about witches, vampires, and Southern magic and myth - New Orleans style. The main characters are teens facing some normal teen stuff topped off with the supernatural. So far, it's a win. I'm about 70% through because instead of folding laundry or reading book club books I'm compelled to finish this book.

All sorts of things to do but I keep not doing them and reading this instead. Now there's an old diary involved. Ahhhh... Someone help me!

So this is not the book I should be reading considering I have 3 book club books to read. But, you know, it called to me. The Storm has devastated New Orleans and magical stuff is going to happen. I mean, that's pretty compelling, right?

Found this ebook on sale a few weeks ago. I love New Orleans, and I'm sure I'm going to be imagining all the characters as people from The Originals! I'm so excited to have the whole day to devote to it! Great Saturday reading!
