Normally we do tags on Thursdays, but lately both of us have been having a harder time finding tags we want to do or think are fun. That’s when Isabelle stumbled upon this new bookish meme: #MGTakesOnThursday created by BookCraic. Middle grade books have become a bigger part of my TBR, so this looked like a lot of fun. Let’s take a look at what this is all about!
How to participate:
- Post a picture of the front cover of a middle-grade book which you have read and would recommend to others with details of the author, illustrator and publisher.
- Open the book to page 11 and share your favorite sentence.
- Write three words to describe the book.
- Either share why you would recommend this book, or link to your review.
So this is pretty straightforward! Today I’m going to showcase City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab!
Cass can pull back the Veil that separates the living from the dead.
When Cass’s parents start hosting a TV show about the world’s most haunted places, the family heads off to Edinburgh. Here, graveyards, castles and secret passageways teem with restless phantoms.
But when Cass meets a girl who shares her “gift”, she realizes how much she still has to learn about the Veil—and herself. And she’ll have to learn fast. The city of ghosts is more dangerous than she ever imagined.
Favorite Sentence from Page 11:
“You can feel their breath on your neck, and every second you don’t look, your mind just makes it worse because in the end, what you don’t see is always scarier than what you do.”
City of Ghosts in Three Words:
Friendship, Adventure, Ghosts
Why I Recommend City of Ghosts:
City of Ghosts is such a fast and fun read. I love how eerie it feels and the characters are really amazing. I read this one quite some time ago and reviewed it as well. You can find my review here. Isabelle actually reviewed this one a few months before I did and you can read here review here.
I’m actually surprised I haven’t read Tunnel of Bones yet! I have a feeling it’s going to be another fun adventure. And we even have the third book coming next year! If you’ve read City of Ghosts, I’d love to hear what you thought! Let me know in the comments!
