The Awakening by Kelley Armstorng

Surprisingly, I've already finished The Awakening, so I thought I share about it. Took me only a few days, yeah for me!

From Kelley Armstrong's site:
If you had met me a few weeks ago, you probably would have described me as an average teenage girl—someone normal. Now my life has changed forever and I’m as far away from normal as it gets. I'm a living science experiment—not only can I see ghosts, but I can raise the dead without even trying. Trust me, that is not a power you want to have. Ever. I’m running for my life with three of my supernatural friends and we have to find someone who can help us gain our freedom back before the Edison Group finds us first. Or die trying.

I would have to say this book was just as good as the first one, if not better. With Chloe and her little team of supernaturals on the run, it gave this book a little more suspense to it. They didn't have to worry just about the Edison Group finding them, they had to deal with all of New York. Whether it was "tough girls" in alleys, rude werewolves, or people looking for the half a million dollar girl ,they had to watch every move they made. I'm kinda sad I'm done with it though because I have to wait until next year for the last one, but I can't wait. It's crazy, I'm turning into my sister! Ick! XD

Well, I hope i get some more readers and friends soon. For now I'm gonna go bug my weirdo sister Jenni. :)

The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong

I finished The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong almost a week ago, I just haven't had the time to post anything about it. This is my first time doing something like this, soo not so sure how it's gonna turn out! :)

From Kelley Armstrong's site:
Chloe Saunders sees dead people. Yes, like in the films. The problem is, in real life saying you see ghosts gets you a one-way ticket to the psych ward. And at 15, all Chloe wants to do is fit in at school and maybe get a boy to notice her. But when a particularly violent ghost haunts her, she gets noticed for all the wrong reasons. Her seemingly crazed behaviour earns her a trip to Lyle House, a centre for 'disturbed teens'. At first Chloe is determined to keep her head down. But then her room mate disappears after confessing she has a poltergeist, and some of the other patients also seem to be manifesting paranormal behaviour. Could that be a coincidence? Or is Lyle House not quite what it seems...? Chloe realizes that if she doesn't uncover the truth, she could be destined for a lifetime in a psychiatric hospital. Or could her fate be even worse...? Can she trust her fellow students, and does she dare reveal her dark secret?

I would highly recommend reading this book. Especially if you're into teen paranormals. I honestly didn't want to put it down. If I didn't have to sleep, I wouldn't have. It wasn't just about a girl that found out one day she could see and communicate with the dead, it was about her finding out who she really was and what people have been trying to keep from her all her life. Along her way, she meets more "troubled" teenagers and uncovers horrible secrets.

I'm very excited to read the next book in the trilogy; The Awakening. Sadly the last one, The Reckoning, comes out sometime next year. :(
