Rose Pressey's Me and My Ghoulfriends
I immediately enjoyed reading the book. Pressey's sense of humor comes to life in the first page, and I am also interested in paranormal activity. I liked reading about the spirits that become attached to Larue.
Pressey does an excellent job developing the characters. I feel like I got to know Laure pretty well, and even Mindy too. For a novel with such light content, I would've liked it to be shorter and more to the point. The book is 639 pages, and primarily consists of swooning over the love-struck boy next door. Honestly I felt like I was back in high school, sitting by the phone, and wondering if he'll call. I'm all for reading a romance novel, I just would've liked to see more development with the ghosts and their unfinished business.
I did download the second installment of Pressey's Larue Donavan series, Ghouls Night Out. I do look forward to reading it, and I hope that I can relate to Larue's troubles a little better.
