Interesting story, kept me reading.
Midnight Girl - Nora LeDuc

This story held me from the beginning. Lisa wanted to protect Travis, and Travis wanted to protect Lisa, but neither truly relied on each other in the beginning. Doubts about their past relationship stood between them. The journey to the end was fraught with ups and downs, and was worth the read.

I received an ARC through Goddess Fish Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

Charming Christmas story
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #37 - Brandon Montclare,Gustavo Duarte,Natacha Bustos

It doesn't pretend to be anything other than a Christmas story, but that's alright: I choose to buy and read this, because I love these characters. 

 

I love how much Lunella cares so much for her friends in this issue.   It was just really nice to see how much she'll sacrifice for them, because they mean that much to her.

Fun!
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #36 - Brandon Montclare,Natacha Bustos

Again, continues to be warm and funny, and I can see why Scholastic does so well with the graphic novels.   (Which is the saving grace for this series for those asking why this was still going.   It doesn't sell well enough month by month but does sell well in graphic novel format.)

This continues to be charming, heartwarming, and fantastic
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #35 - Brandon Montclare,Natacha Bustos

And I love, love, love it.   So much fun.  Moon Girl continues to be a charming mixture of exasperated by a world who doesn't understand her, and determined to do good for everyone around her anyway.

The Girl in the Green Silk Gown / Seanan McGuire
The Girl in the Green Silk Gown - Seanan McGuire

For Rose Marshall, death has long since become the only life she really knows. She's been sweet sixteen for more than sixty years, hitchhiking her way along the highways and byways of America, sometimes seen as an avenging angel, sometimes seen as a killer in her own right, but always Rose, the Phantom Prom Date, the Girl in the Green Silk Gown.

The man who killed her is still out there, thanks to a crossroads bargain that won't let him die, and he's looking for the one who got away. When Bobby Cross comes back into the picture, there's going to be hell to pay--possibly literally.

Rose has worked for decades to make a place for herself in the twilight. Can she defend it, when Bobby Cross comes to take her down? Can she find a way to navigate the worlds of the living and the dead, and make it home before her hitchhiker's luck runs out?

 

A big step up from Sparrow Hill Road, the first book which was basically a series of short stories. Not that that’s a bad thing, just not what I had been expecting. This is a true novel, with one intense story line. I was “supposed” to read other books before picking this one up, but I couldn’t resist its siren song. And I read it in two evenings, desperately wanting to know if ghostly Rose Marshall could get where she wanted to be.

This was the confrontation Rose had been dreading, pitting her will against that of her murderer, Bobby Cross. She does it with style, smarts and bravery plus a generous dollop of help from her friends. Even her frenemies get involved. I was on the edge of my seat throughout, wondering how each twist and turn would pan out.

I was interested to see McGuire reference the Price family again (a connection with her InCryptid series) as a potential haven for Rose. Mary, the crossroads ghost, featured in Tricks for Free, #7 of InCryptid, so we now have no doubt that these two series take place in the same universe. McGuire also introduces a bean sidhe as one of Rose’s friends, perhaps a connection to McGuire’s October Daye series. Wouldn’t it be fun to see all three story lines intersect at some point in the future?
