This time I couldn‘t get the audiobook version from the library, but I still enjoyed the second book of Cassie‘s adventures, which take her and her paranormal documentarian parents (and her ghost bestie Jacob) to Paris.🔸#octoberreads2021
“The train rattles as it moves beneath the city.“
I can personally attest to that, though I never ventured into the catacombs because 😩 ☠ 🐥

This was every bit as fun as City of Ghosts, and a super quick read. I'm looking forward to book 3, and hoping it deals with the progression of Jacob's story. I just had a student check out City of Ghosts and I'm excited to see what she thinks of it!
@TheAromaofBooks This was my October #bookspin title!
Overall, I think I preferred book 1, but I have enjoyed book 2 as well. I mean, it is Paris after all and I love Paris. I am also happy that we were finally able to learn a little more about Jacob. This read, I got a Nancy Drew feel to the book. Yes, a paranormal version of Nancy Drew, but the nostalgia definitely hit.
To me, this part was even better than the first one! Schwab really shows her talent with Cassidy and Jacob. It's creepy, but not to much. Perfect for the targeted age group and grown-ups who want to to be spooked, but not too much. My favourite part was how the friendship between Cas and Jacob evolved. They're such a great team! ❤
An absolute fantastic second book to the Cassidy Blake series. See my full review here:
3rd book read for #seriesread21 and #bookspinbingo This is also my #bookspindoublespin 📚. Cassidy lives between worlds after a near death experience where Jacob, her ghost best friend, saved her life. Now in Paris w/her parents Cassidy accidentally awakens a strong spirit & now must hurry to send the spirit where it belongs before the city is overrun. Still just a newbie ghost hunter; what will she do?
Fun second book in this middle grade series. The Paris setting was great and the book upped the ante by having Cassidy face a poltergeist. I hope the author doesn't feel pressured to keep upping the ante on the big bads as I think encountering different ghosts in different cities is enough to keep things fresh. Love the way Jacob's story is developing and the ethical dilemmas that arise from Cassidy's secret calling. Excited for the next one!
Didn‘t have a huge reading weekend for #cocoturns50 because I kept getting distracted by a Halloween puzzle, more Ghost Hunters (19 episodes this weekend!), and Goosebumps 2 but I finished 2 books!
+100 points for episodes/movies, +15 points for books read, +20 points for readathon hours read, +1 point participation =136 points for #TeamSlaughter and #scarathlon2020
I had 232 points total this week brining my cumulative score to 499!
Supposedly for 9-12 year olds, but I really enjoyed it. A fun story, with a little thrill...
Cassidy and her ghost best friend Jacob run into paranormal trouble in the creepy Parisian catacombs.
Thanks for sharing it @Hazel2019 🙂
And on audio for #summerfun bingo
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ this book is meant for 9-12 year olds but can be enjoyed by all. It‘s a story of a girl with abilities to see ghosts and help them ‘move on‘. Her best friend is also a ghosts and they go through many adventures, some quite terrifying, on their trip to Paris where her parents are filming a TV show about haunted places.
A bit uneven but the last third is pure magic. 🖤
Finished this #middlegrade #audiobook with my puzzle today. I enjoy following Cassidy, a preteen whose best friends is a ghost, travel with her parents for their paranormal TV show. It helps that the books so far have been set places I‘ve visited, and that #kidlit spooks are about as scary as I can handle 👻
A fun and entertaining read with the right amount of spooky. This second instalment sees Cassidy, her parents, and her (ghost) best friend, Jacob, travel to the City of Lights, visiting some of the iconic landmarks. I liked the friendship between Cassidy and Jacob, and that Jacob‘s past is revealed. I look forward to read their next adventure!
I am posting one book per day from my extensive to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new. Don‘t judge me - I have a lot of books. Join the fun if you want.
This is day 3 #bookstoread #tbrpile
It was ok... I am glad Jacob has a good role to play in this book as well. But the ending was too abrupt & underwhelming. The story was fine as you would expect from a middle grade novel. I liked the first one better than this. I still will read the next book in the series because I am just so invested in Jacob & what happens to him.

I read this Feb 29-Mar 1 and gave it 3 ⭐️. While I did like it, I think the book does suffer from 2nd book syndrome. I also have major issues with Cassidy‘s parents. While I liked this book, I‘ve recently read another book with a similar setting that kind of ruined this one for me. I did like the development of Cassidy and Jacob as characters.
1. I‘ve studied German, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic and French—I still read in French, German & Hebrew, which I can also speak, but have lost my Russian & Arabic except for a few phrases
2. Tagged—second book in a great MG series
3. I ate salad so lots of colors
5. Will do!
I've actually been reading lots of books this month. Which is kind of weird because I'm busier than usual. So I'm not sure how that math works out exactly, but I'll just go with it.
Starting the second in the series! It is so good!🥰
I love this middle grade series by Victoria Schwab. The first book really blindsided me when I bought it at an event for her other novel VENGEFUL. This book is wonderfully fun with a clever dose of dark. Schwab manages to raise the stakes in this sequel and even drops a hint at where the third book will take things. Schwab is so damn good.
Wow! This one was even better than the first (City of Ghosts) in the series & you don‘t have to be a young reader to enjoy this absolutely fantastic, atmospheric & haunting MG ghost story. Schwab is a talented writer adept at worldbuilding, creating complex & compelling characters, & writing a rich, dark, & oh-so-creepy story. This one sees Cassidy Black traveling to Paris & exploring the Catacombs with her parents. Trouble soon follows. So good.
So, in an ambitious move, I‘m setting my reading goal for 2020 at fifty books. I anticipate quite a few graphic novels in there, so I don‘t think that‘ll be all that unrealistic. I‘ve got three books I‘m in the middle of right now: Tunnel of Bones by Victoria Schwab, East of West, Vol. 4 by Jonathan Hickman, and The Lady from the Black Lagoon by Mallory O‘Meara. There‘s also a fourth I‘m beta reading for a friend. My plate is full.
My first Bookopoly pick was a success. Earlier today I rolled 'Next Book in a Series' and decided to listen to TUNNEL OF BONES on audio. I had recently read and enjoyed book 1. It was a good sequel. I am definitely looking forward to book 3 and think I ended 2019 on a positive note as this will likely be my last audio of the year. #Bookopoly #catsoflitsy #readin2019
For something fun for 2020, I made a Bookopoly board to choose my reading. I was excited, and between books, so I decided to start early. So, my first Bookopoly pick is Tunnel of Bones by Victoria Schwab. I just finished City of Ghosts by her yesterday, so now I can keep the momentum going. #bookopoly #currentlyreading
Thank you so much!!! @Chrissyreadit I absolutely love the journal and bookmark! And Tunnel Of Bones!!!! Im so excited to read it! I cant wait to try the chocolate as im last minute wrapping! Thank you again!! #jolabokaflodswap

I myself have been a ghost for a bit, but December is going to be quite the adventure of jumping back in ~
This book is so much fun and surprisingly creepy for middle grade! 😳😳

I'm such a sucker for Schwab. She's the master of word and I will read whatever she pens on paper. Throw any genre, any age level, any topic at her and she will conquer.
The City of Ghosts series has a parallel feel to The Archived but I still love it. Although this is a middle grade series, book 1 felt a bit more intricate and layered than book 2. I enjoy the characters, dialogue, flow and world building. Bring on book 3!
🎧 book 2 ... great audiobook! I like these books so much that I bought the hardcover of book one for my niece for her birthday. She‘s 5 but her brother is 10 & their mom loves Harry Potter which came up again in this book. I think it‘ll be a fun family book. The story is still like a young Veronica Mars crossed with the Ghost Whisperer. This book takes place in Paris where book 1 was in Scotland. Think ... catacombs 😈 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️3/4
