Ballad for a Mad Girl
Ballad for a Mad Girl - Vikki Wakefield

Grace Foley is a seventeen-year-old prankster and risk-taker. The only thing she's afraid of is losing. One night she accepts a challenge as part of a feud between the two local schools, but things don't go as planned. Something she can't explain happens and now she's haunted by voices and visions. She's drawn into a twenty-year-old mystery surrounding a missing girl named Hannah Holt, and she's having trouble figuring out what's real and what's imagined. Grace is losing herself and she doesn't know if she's uncovering the truth or if she's going mad.

 

I don't know what made me request this book. Reading the blurb now it doesn't interest me at all. I found this book extremely hard to get in to. The writing was disjointed, it was hard to follow along. I did not like any of the characters. I just don't care. DNF @ 43%.

 

Thank you to Netgalley and Text Publishing for a copy of this book.

If I Had a Gryphon - Vikki VanSickle,Cale Atkinson

For all of those kids who love fantasy creatures and wish they were real (my kids included) this is the book for you. Gorgeous illustrations and a fun tale to follow along with. Also a reminder to those with pets that they should be cherished even if they aren't the fantasy ones we wish were real. Great childrens book!!! I received a copy in exchange for an honest review via Librarything early reviewers.

Reading progress update: I've read 200 out of 333 pages.
Inbetween Days - Vikki Wakefield

'"I suppose I would rather tell her how she makes me feel."

"How does she make you feel?"

"I would tell her that I like her hands. I would tell her that I don't like being touched, but her hands are the exception. I don't like to be made fun of - and she's done that, many times, either implicitly or overtly - but I would take her ridicule over her not knowing I existed, any day. I'd confess I don't like being wrong about anything but I hope I'm wrong about her - she's not right for me, I know that, but I want her anyway. I would tell her that being back here is only bearable because she's here too and, for the first time ever, I don't want to leave. I wish I knew how to tell her how I feel without bringing on an ending of some kind, but I know it's inevitable. And I would tell her I understood if she told me she didn't feel the same way."

"That's how she makes me feel."'

Exhibit A on why I love reading more than anything. Because who the fuck says something like that in real life?
