Tuesday Review: "My Haunting Love"

Tuesday Review
My Haunting Love
By: J.S. Wilsoncroft

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Great PAranormal YA Book June 12, 2013
By Becca
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
Calista Rose is a sixteen year old deaf girl that knows something is amiss inside her home. When things start moving on their own, and her favorite ASL book mysteriously gets highlighted, she knows for sure she is in trouble. Soon she meets a ghost named John and gets smitten. His classic looks, gentlemanly ways, and boy next store charm claim her heart. But little does she know falling in love with John will wake up the true evil inside her home and threaten her life, and the lives of her family. Unless she can find a way for John to expose the truth behind his father's and sister's deaths.


This multi layered book had me captivated from the first page. Not only is it a sweet teenage love story, but it is a murder mystery complete with a "Clue" like who done it spin. The story seamlessly flows, and the backstory is cleanly integrated. The fact that Clista is deaf only adds to the books imagery. We see everything more clearly, as Clarista relies on her sense of sight, the descriptions clearly portray this.



My Haunting Love is a clever and sweet read. Wilsoncroft clearly has grown as a writer. This book showcases her ability to build suspense, as well as her ability to make you feel for her characters. This is her first YA novel and clearly she hits the mark. I will even go so far as to say this book is YA Gold. Perfect for middle to upper grade kids, but adults will appreciate the action and suspense as well. Great summer read that won't weigh you down and will leave you feeling satisfied.

Writer Wednesday: Excerpt of "Thou Shalt Not Kill" by: Theresa Oliver

Writer Wednesday
Excerpt of 
Thou Shalt Not Kill by: Theresa Oliver

We ran back as quickly as we could and told the others, still resting by the river.  Within a few moments, we were back at the cave. Everyone was excited as we entered. That is, everyone except for the cheerleaders.  They complained it was too dirty and dusty, but even they knew that, although it wasn’t the Ritz, it was shelter from the elements, wild animals, and from—although we didn’t want to think about it—terrorists.
We spent some time working together, clearing the large room of the cave into something livable. There were branches that had blown into the entrance that we clear away. We needed lights to explore the rest of the cave system. With all of us working together, the cave was soon cleared, revealing the gray dust floor and pitted stone walls formed over thousands of years.
Then my stomach growled loudly, unable to be ignored. “Now we just have to find some food,” I said aloud, kind of to myself, but everyone heard.
Derek nodded, his eyebrows pulling together, and lowered his head, thinking.
“What I wouldn’t give for a rifle,” Trevor said, shaking his head. “We could go hunting.”
“Yeah, we could go hunting terrorists,” Scott said mockingly, his smile coming back.
“I was thinking food, but that works, too.”
“Yeah, we need a rifle.”
Then there was dead silence. Everyone was staring at Trevor, then at Scott.
Scott said, “Then let’s get one.”
“Now, wait a minute,” Derek intervened, holding his hand up slightly. “How do you suppose we do that?”
“Well, the terrorists have plenty …” Scott replied, still smiling. A gleam appeared in his eyes.
“And you think we could just walk right up and ask for one?” Derek asked sarcastically.
“No, but we could take one,” Trevor said, looking at Scott conspiratorially.
“Yeah right,” I said sarcastically, fearing what they were thinking, trying to lighten the conversation.
“Yeah, we could,” Trevor said to Scott seriously, ignoring me. “It wouldn’t be hard.”
“Not if they were dead,” Scott said as shock reverberated around the room.
“Okay, that’s enough,” I quickly interrupted. “You aren’t seriously thinking of killing them, are you? Just to get a gun?”
“Why not?” Trevor yelled. “They sure as hell didn’t mind killing us, did they?”
“We’re not dead,” I returned, horrified at what I was hearing.
“Well, you know what I mean,” Trevor said, pacing away, addressing everyone in the cave. “We can’t just sit here, waiting for them to catch us! Waiting to die! And if I’m going down, then I’m going to take some of them with me!”
An agreeing murmur resounded around the room.
“What about the commandment Thou Shalt Not Kill, Trevor? Thou shalt not kill!” I shouted to everyone. “It’s what we’ve been taught. What we believe! And we can’t give up on that. We can’t give up our beliefs, no matter what they did! We can’t forget who we are!”
“So if someone comes in here and tries to kill us, you’ll let them?” Trevor’s voice shook with fury. He clenched his fists until his knuckles were bone white.
“Self defense is one thing, but planning murder is another.” I returned his glare.

“You mean to tell me that if someone came in here and held a gun to my head and you had a gun that you wouldn’t shoot them?” Trevor was an inch away from my face now. Derek was standing on my side, ready to intervene if necessary. Then, Trevor grabbed my face hard by the chin, gritting his teeth, looking me in the eye. “Or what if they were going to shoot you?”

Tuesday Review: "Thou Shalt Not Kill" by: Theresa Oliver

Tuesday Review
Thou Shalt Not Kill by: Theresa Oliver

"So, yes I have to say this book has floored me. When I first started it I was like, oh no, she didn't go there with a school killing. But the more I read the more you hooked me. I mean it's just my humble opinion, but I think this could be huge. It's right up there with Hunger Games and I can even compare it to the novel Eve. (That was a dystopian after plague America where teenagers had to fight for survival.) I couldn't stop reading it, I can't stop thinking about it, and I just think it's fantastic. Casey as a lead is the total package of strong girl turning into a woman, yet vulnerable and moral. The way the kids ban together, are forced to grow up, face loss, perfect. And the thread of Thou Shall Not Kill, the commandment, the morality, the inner struggle Casey feels and faces in practicing her faith and saving her friends and family, that is what sets it apart and makes it different.

You weren't afraid to let her face loss and grieve, you didn't shy away from the cold harsh reality of "war".  You showed the internal conflict it takes to pull the trigger. It was real and raw, and didn't talk down to your target audience. Timely, yet not patronizing or hate filled. You kept surprising me with little plot twists, the pacing is perfect, the characters are all central to the story, and the plot line is believable. I never once thought otherwise. I was totally immersed in their world. 

When I first read My Haunting Love, I admit I read it early last year, I knew that was YA gold. And this is right up there. I just think this book is fantastic. Really. I am actually on my second read through since I read it so fast the first time ... love it."

Synopsis: In Thou Shalt Not Kill, Catholic high school students are faced with a decision: do I kill to save my life and the lives of others or not, even at the cost of my own life? Casey Nichols and her friends are forced to answer this questions after finding themselves in the middle of WWIII when their school, their city, and their country are overrun by terrorists. The decisions they make have consequences, but can they live with the choices they make? Derek saves Casey’s life, but will another steal her heart? In Thou Shalt Not Kill, some will live, some will die ... all choose to fight. When all hell breaks loose, which path will you choose?
