Read my full review post on my blog, http://michelleshoutsrandom.blogspot.com/2012/10/blog-tour-review-giveaway-carnival-of.html
To be honest, I've never read (or heard) of Melissa Marr before. Everyone seems to know her, or read her books. Reading reviews about this book on Goodreads and her other books, I realized that they must've really know her and loved her books. So when an opportunity sets in, I took it. Carnival of Souls, is my first book from her.
You know, if you're a reader and you read and read (of course) but you can't find light or anything you wanted to see or to get from these books, you could cry of frustration. Where is THAT good book?? You feel like giving up. Like giving up from trying to create a house of cards, but WANTING to get to it.
Reading Carnival of Souls was a joy to me. Don't get me wrong, I don't like people killing each other and talking about breeding like that in real life. It's just that, finally, I've got the book what I'm looking for. It's all in my hands! This book has it: original world building, favorable characters, and oh-so new to me. I've always like books that came fresh to me. Who likes reading repeated stories and predictable endings? I'm sure you don't want that, either. It's a kind of book where you don't know what to expect next, what and who are you gonna trust your heart with. It keeps you guessing, leaves you nodding like, Hmm.. This is really good, and makes you cheer like, Yes! Come together and beat those witches!
This is, by far, my really good read for felt like forever after a several DNFs (that God, those books were just borrowed). As I said, it is new to me. It caught my interest and yes, it kept me wishing for more. It think it's just a little slow-paced. And the ending. The Ending. It felt like a cut TV show for a commercial break but you realized that it will never come back until after another YEAR. Sweet, isn't it?
My first, but now, made me want to read more from Melissa Marr. I found light in a dark novel. And it's a good thing. Very.show more
