It‘s storming outside, work is delayed for technical reasons, and the dog has found the perfect spot on me to lay. Just a morning of reading.

What a #Dark #Vicious #SciFi story about two close friends who discovered the mystery about becoming an ExtraOrdinary Human with super power and in doing so, become each other's biggest enemy. Finished it during my Easter holiday & #VESchwab has definitely become one of my favorite fantasy/sci-fi authors with her unique stories & fantastic writing. Now I need something to lighten my mood

Just finished reading City of Ghosts a few minutes ago and loved it. Victoria Schwab does some brilliant stuff in this book. The characters are intriguing and I can‘t wait to hang out with them again in the next book. Schwab has saved a lot of plot threads for the following books, but that doesn‘t keep City of Ghosts from being a satisfying read. #VESchwab
In a brilliant piece of world-building, Victoria Schwab forces Cassidy to navigate the city of the dead to find a place in the land of the living. It‘s a great obstacle that doesn‘t feel fabricated just for the sake of the problem, but rather it reads like she took advantage of the rules she‘d already put in place. That‘s world-building done right. #VESchwab #worldbuilding
Fifty pages into this book, and it‘s already a home run. Great characters, great voice, and excellent worldbuilding. City of Ghosts features Schwab at her quirky, creepy cool best. I‘ve finished “Part One: The Inspecters,” so it‘s on to “Part Two: City of Ghosts” (recycling the title seems like cheating). #MiddleGrade #VESchwab
I don‘t usually binge authors, but since @EclecticReaders is discussing City of Ghosts on this month‘s podcast, I‘m cracking into V.E. Schwab‘s City of Ghosts, even though I just finished her novel Vengeful. I bought them both at the same event last year from @OneMorePageBooks . Looking forward to seeing what Schwab came up with for CoG and then listening to the Eclectic Readers‘ take on it. #podcast #VESchwab #middlegrade
