    So honestly, I'm constantly surprised by the comparisons between Vega and King. I don't really get it, except...they both write horror? This is a good, clean, YA novel. You have a girl who is a bit of an outsider with a past who moves to a small town and this town has secrets...secr...

    I was drawn to this book by the book cover. I figured with a book cover like this, the book had to be good. Sadly, I was mistaken. There may have been things that went bump in the night but it was barely a blimp on the radar. There was nothing that intriguing about the characters. ...

    I am confused. I'm feeling both heartbroken and creeped out at the same time. What a weird combination. And look - this new YA installment is actually my favorite release from this author. Granted, I've only read the first book in the Merciless. But I felt that there's somethi...

    I had hoped to like this book more than I ended up liking it. One of the reasons for this was that it is classified as a horror story but it felt more like a contemporary with spooky vibes. One of my biggest problems with the story was that the main character, Hendricks, experienced un...

    Read more of my reviews at Cornerfolds.com! I am a huge fan of The Merciless series! I read them as they were released and really enjoyed every one. I was constantly impressed with Vega's ability to write truly scary horror novels for a YA audience and was excited to pick up The Hau...

    A girl moves to a new home... only to find out that she and her family aren't the only ones living there. This my very first Danielle Vega book that I finished and liked. Wow. I kind of had given up this writer, I have tried all her books (at least the first books if it is a series)...

    3.0 Stars Video Review: https://youtu.be/46yjsV9yAqY As a huge of The Merciless, I was eager to check out the newest novel by Danielle Vega. I didn't expect to love this one as much as The Merciless, because I prefer exorcisms over haunted house. Yet, even with tempered expectations,...

    Horror is a tricky genre that I usually find myself mad at more than anything because of one reason or another, but The Haunted took me by surprise and left me eager for more horror and more books by Vega. Hendricks moves to a small town in New York after her parents decide it is b...

    Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for a copy of this book. Another great book from Danielle Vega. I enjoy her writing style, and her books are just creepy enough that I have to read them during the day. Can't wait for her next one. ...

    I have seen Vega's Merciless series in the book stores so often that I've almost... ALMOST... bought one. I'm not sure why I was hesitant.. maybe it's because I figured YA horror couldn't possibly be frightening... but these days I'm finding that I'm quite enjoying this mixed genre a...

    **Review can be found at https://smadasbooksmack.blogspot.com/ ** Hendricks is just trying to start over, leaving behind the events from the last few months and looking forward to the chance to be a new girl in a new high school far away. But what she didn't know was that the house ...

    Fast-paced and mysterious, The Haunted is a spooky tale sure to bring the chills to young horror lovers. Hendricks and her family move away from their old town as a sort of fresh start, and make their way to a beautiful fixer-upper in a super small, close knit town. Little do they ...

    2.25/5 - miss Vega where?d my campy horror queen go - don?t get me wrong this book is creepy .. but it?s nothing like her other horror books which are INSANE and violent (in a fun way imo) and I LOVE them - When it was creepy it was creepy otherwise it was boring .. idk - ...

    This was a really fun haunted house story! It was suitably creepy and more than a little gory. There is some animal death so be aware if you are sensitive to that topic. It's more of a mention and not graphic or detailed violence to an animal. There is a lot of suspense and tension whi...

    Final buddy read of the year, sis! (Well, technically, maybe not. Maybe 2018 will be a doll and stretch itself out a wee bit so we can squeeze one more read...) Whichever, happy reading and happy closing of buddy reads for 2018. ...

    "Why are you doing this? What do you want?" "We already told you. We want one more." A haunted house. A haunted past. Which one is more dangerous? Logically it's a 4, but my heart gives it a 5. And honestly, after a little distance from it, it's 4. My heart still unashamedly...

    "She looked away from the tub for a fraction of a second, and when she looked back, there was a boy standing in the tub, watching her with wide black eyes, her razor clutched in one hand. He tilted his head, his upper lip twitching." Danielle Vega always knows how to make me uncomfo...

    I... just- what? Like what was that ending? I'm just at a loss for words tbh. This honestly isn't Danielle Vega's best work. The ending bumped it up or lessened it depending on how you look at it. Lmao that ending was sooo dumb. I'm astounded. I both hated and loved it. This book bo...

    I won a free copy of this book from Bookish First in exchange for an honest review. Okay, so before this turns into a big, long rant, I want to say that the first half of this book was amazing! The writing is truly great. The pacing is fast and exciting. The horror aspect is refresh...

    It's Danielle Vega, so naturally I love it. This book is about a girl named Hendricks who moves into a house where a young girl was murdered. It doesn't take long before spooky shit starts happening - creepy disembodied voices, meowing from a cat that she doesn't have, the smell of ...

    YA's answer to Stephen King... That's a lofty statement but I'll bite. Plus, my 80s-loving heart feels the vibe of this cover. Let's do this. ...

    4.5 Stars rounded down because I Am SALTY over the ending. This was the first book that I have read by Danielle under the Vega name. I have read others that are under Rollins and I was still super intrigued and interested the entire time. Danielle just has a way with writing and this b...

    In true Danielle Vega fashion this book had me on the edge of my seat, wanting to read straight to the end but not right before bed obviously. when a book starts with something traumatic, you're in for a ride. the story starts out traumatic and bounces to a normal teenager who is exp...
