After reading City of Ghosts I was desperate to get my hands on a ARC for Tunnel of Bones. I called a very good friend of mine who reads a lot of MG/YA. Lo and behold she had an ARC for Tunnel of Bones. I stopped by one night and picked this lovely book up. I sat down the last week and devoured the second book in Schwab’s series. I am so glad that I read the first book and was able to read the second book without waiting.
Synopsis: A girl and her ghostly best friend go to Paris with her parents to continue making a paranormal show.
What I liked: There is so much to like about this book and series. There is a seamless transition from the first book to the second book. Many of the themes that are in the first book are carried over into the Tunnel of Bones. Schwab’s characterizations are still written so well. You truly believe that Cassidy is thinking like a 12 year old would. I love how some of the characters where carried over.
What I didn’t Like: It ended!!
Star Rating: 5 Stars
My Thoughts: These are the books I needed when I was around Cassidy’s age. I really think that Schwab is onto something with this series. It is just spooky enough for younger readers to not be frightened. But is still spooky enough to entertain older readers. I really appreciate that spooky books for MG readers are being published. I can’t wait for third book and learn more about Jacob and Cassidy.
