    It takes a long time to get to the good in this book. Up until that point, it?s the basic. Basic heroine. Basic ghost story. Basic boy. Basic. If you can get past Basic Becky and the slow haunting, you finally get to something that?s different. It was a nice surprise and, honest...

    I received a copy of this book from Netgalley And the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This book is strange. The first half is a slow burn creepiness which I did not mind at all. Then the last fourt of the book is at breakneck speed and really confusing. So. Plot. Haun...

    I love creepy ghost stories and it's been awhile since I've read one. THE FADE showed up at my door randomly and while it had a lot of promise, it ended up falling flat for me. Haley and her family have recently moved from Chicago to the middle-of-no-where-Wisconsin. Unfortunately, the...

    The full review + more can be found at The Book Bratz This review is going to be styled a little differently then other reviews I have written for the pure fact that I don't have much to say about this book: - The idea behind The Fade was interesting but also cliche. -It is s...

    Girl and her family moves into a spooky new house. Strange things start to happen. I was on board and in the mood for something spooky and suspenseful, but this book just never grabbed me in the way that you hope a scary book will. I read at least a third and the premise as far...

    This was a pretty fast paced, somewhat enjoyable read but many of the scenes were over the top and the twists were either predictable or nonsensical. ...

    Warnings: descriptions of assault, domestic abuse, suicide The Fade is a part-mystery, part-horror novel. When Haley is moved to a small town, she doesn't know that the moldy basement would be the least of her problems. Because of her NDE, she is able to sense the restless spirits i...

    I thought this was a perfect creepy story for middle grade. I read it at night and was even spooked out a little. There was a plot twist and I want to go back and re-read the book now that I know about it. The characters are likable. I think a few of them could have been developed a...

    Really not very good. The romance was subpar at best, there were way too many side-lined characters that could've been so much more interesting if they'd gotten more page time, and the whole "mystery" of all the dead girls really wasn't all that compelling. There wasn't really anything...

    This book follows Haley, a girl who just moved in with her family in what seems like a haunted house. From the beginning, she feels there is something off about it and it's not just because she moved away from Chicago against her will. Haley meets the local teenagers and she learns...

    I received an advanced copy of this book from Penguin Random House and NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. Everyone loves ghost stories once in a while. I haven't read a lot these days, so when I saw this book, I didn't hesitate to give it a shot. The...

    People who like a good ghost story may love this book. I gave it 3*** only because I am not much of a ghost person. Having said that The Fade reads exactly like it title says. You will be reading along and it will "Fade" into something you may not expect. It's a good story I just coul...

    *Book Received in Exchange for Honest Opinion/Review* So I just finished the last page of this book and all I can say is this book was weird, and I'm not even sure if it's a good weird. I don't think so because the more I reflect, the more I realize I am not satisfied at the end of ...

    The Fade starts out pretty straight forward, when a girl moves into the house of one of four girls who went missing ~five years ago and begins to see and feel ghosts with a connection to her basement that need help getting their story told. While the first two thirds of the book were u...

    The Fade by Demitria Lunetta is a young adult mystery mixed with paranormal fantasy. The main character in the story is only fifteen and may even feel a tad younger so this one is a good creepy ghost story that fits the younger crowd although there is some violence. Haley and her fa...

    I have... mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand, I really got into the story, and was genuinely surprised by all of the twists and turns. The suspense kept me invested, wanting to read on and find out what would happen next. On the other hand, however, the plot felt rushed, t...

    This reminded me a lot of that Nicole Kidman movie The Others, in terms of how the haunting and the ghostly elements were done. I really thought that Lunetta did a good job portraying not only the ghosts, their mannerisms and abilities, but also what happened to each of them when it wa...

    So what to say about this one. I loved the authors other stories and was totally wanting to read this one. So I dived in and then dived right back out again. I have to say that this is not the author's best work. I felt like this one was very very slow. The first half of the book was i...

    Some characters were mildly annoying, and this wasn't as scary as i thought it would be, but this was still an engaging book. Haley's narration was annoying at first, but she grew on me. The mystery element kept it interesting, and Josh and Sera, with their awesome dynamic, made it all...

    I wanted to give the book a 3.5 so that's why I went with a four. Overall it was a really good book. Was thrown off a little at one point but it was explained finally so that was good. However I'm not sure how I feel about the ending right now. It wasn't bad but it was...different. Goo...
