I won an arc of Grim Lovelies in a Good Reads give away. The setting (Paris) and the concept interested me and I am glad to say I really enjoyed the book. I enjoyed the character of Anouk, although at times she could be rash. I loved the descriptions of Paris, the countryside, the gardens, etc.

Such a good story. Very fast pace and also I loved the new location. We meet some new people but also lost some key characters. I can't wait to see where this story goes next. Very good story. I liked how we still got Pov form all the main characters but also how this book changed them so much!

Thanks edelweiss for the free copy!

Megan Shepherd continues her Malice Compendium with Midnight Showing. Make no mistake, however. Midnight Showing is not a sequel you can pick up and understand without reading the first book. Not only does Ms. Shepherd refer to scenes from the first book, she does not recap what happened. Therefore, you need to know who Haven is, what happened at Malice House, and why she is on the run.

Don't let that prevent you from checking out this series, however. The first book, Malice House, is a fascinating mix of horror and fantasy, and Midnight Showing continues that trend. This time, instead of exploring Haven's prowess, we follow alongside Haven and her sister as they seek to uncover more about their lineage and the curse that dogs their family.

As any good horror story enthusiast knows, sometimes the scariest monsters are the ones we create with our imaginations. This is a fact Haven learns the hard way in the first book. This time, however, the monsters she faces aren't her own making, upping the stakes as she seeks to minimize the damage these creations wrought.

Like any good sequel, we get the answers to some lingering questions while Ms. Shepherd raises even more. There continues to be a good blend of horror and fantasy, and the addition of Haven's sister allows for some much-needed dry humor to ease the tension. Midnight Showing is a fantastic spooky read for the season and worthy of any horror lovers' attention.
