The Haunting of Sunshine Girl Thank god that's over You know what's funny I'm working on a novel myself and it too is a haunted house book The Haunting of Sunshine Girl is everything I DON'T want my book to be The main character is a text book example of a Mary Sue She's adorkably clumsy self conscious with her frizzy hair and oh so uniue thrift store clothes obsession and never swears because golly gee think of the children She has odd eyes of course her name is weird Sunshine ick and she's destined to be a super special snowflakeIn addition to an insufferable main character the horror element is nonexistent There is no tension or suspense let alone true horror aspects I never for one second thought our special heroine wouldn't succeed in defeating the demon The mythology in this novel was very weakly explained I really dislike the trope of withholding information because it's too soon for you to know or You'll understand in time No dude just tell me now The thing is lots of kids like horror Real horror I have always been obsessed with horror Ever since I was a little kid a good suspenseful thriller was my absolute favorite type of story This wouldn't have lived up to my 11 year old expectations let alone now Very disappointing Buy this book HERE on or buy this book HERE on BookDepository with FREE WORLDWIDE SHIIPPING 1 out of 5 stars Please read my rating system further below GAH I wanted to love this book so badly The author is so nice and I love her YouTube videos I really really REALLY hope that this book was not ghost written But hey it was co written with Alyssa Shimmel so I'm not really sure The writing style in this book was very conversational and sounded EXACTLY the way a teenage girl would talk Yes I understand that this book is written from a teenage girl's point of view but by the middle of this book I just couldn't read further into the story because I couldn't engage into the writing style any Because I was annoyed with how the book was written most of the time I don't think I engaged into the story that well The story was really predictable and I really didn't understand the weird chapters that were not from Sunshine's perspective As for characters they were uite generic The only the that really stood out to me was the fact that Sunshine really was into vintage clothing and that she had a really good relationship with her mother Overall my high expectations for this book were unfortunately not met My rating system I do use half stars5 I do not use the 5 star Not because a book might not be worthy but because a book is never perfect4 I loved it There weren't too many flaws and I had no trouble getting through it A 4 star rating is the highest rating I've ever given a book3 I enjoyed the book but there we're flaws that made me enjoy it less2 I finished the book but there were too many flaws for me to enjoy it1 I could not finish the book and I probably did not finish it A New York Times bestseller The Haunting of Sunshine Girlin active development for television by The Weinstein Company a hit paranomal YA series based on the wildly popular YouTube channel about an adorkable teenager living in a haunted house Shortly after her sixteenth birthday Sunshine Griffith and her mother Kat move from sunny Austin Texas to the rain drenched town of Ridgemont Washington Though Sunshine is adopted she and her mother have always been close sharing a special bond filled with laughter and inside jokes But from the moment they arrive Sunshine feels her world darken with an eeriness she cannot place And even if Kat doesn't recognize it Sunshine knows that something about their new house is just creepy In the days that follow things only get stranger Sunshine is followed around the house by an icy breeze phantom wind slams her bedroom door shut and eventually the laughter Sunshine hears on her first night evolves into sobs She can hardly believe it but as the spirits haunting her house become frightening and it becomes clear that Kat is in danger Sunshine must accept what she is pass the test before her and save her mother from a fate worse than death wwwmelissa413readsalotblogspotcomThat was a creepy little ghost story I liked it a lot Sunshine and her mother move from Texas to Washington so that Sunshine's mom Kat can work at a better position in the town's hospital I loved how the author described them first coming to the house how all of the houses were so uiet and no one in the yards no kids Then they get to the house and Sunshine had a weird feeling about it All of that pulled me right in Sunshine starts school not long after that and becomes friends with Nolan I loved his character in the book he's not a love interest he's something else Sunshine is upset the school doesn't have a photography department because she likes to use old school cameras you know with REAL film She has a couple of rolls she wanted to develop to see if she caught a ghost from her house on them That's all I'm saying about that She sends them to her best friend Ashley back home There is a really reliable place that Sunshine wants her to get them developed for her I'm not going to tell you what they reveal The story moves on at a good pace and we find out about the ghost that his haunting the house Actually we find out a lot about what's going on in that house It's way than I ever thought I think this story is a brilliant take on ghosts and other creatures I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to the next one FYI Sunshine is not what she seems to be Rating 275 Creeptastic uote from the book StarsReview to come in short NOT really scary and the twists and turns became too involved and at that point I became a casual observer rather than a participant in this horror story The first third of this book was SO creepy I loved it A great haunting story in the vein of the movie 'Paranormal Activity' I liked the main character Sunshine and the relationship with her mother especially as it changed during the haunting The guylove interest because it's YA nobody can last a month past 16 without a love interest obvs is cute enough if a little too convenientBut then the story turned into something completely different It stopped being about the haunting really and definitely stopped being creepy It's about Sunshine and her 'destiny' is the best I can say without major spoilers From the middle of the book it went pretty downhill for me I lost interest a little and it started to get predictable and too darn convenient I'm actually a bit disappointed that in the end it felt bland Not at all like the first part which I think got my hopes up a little too high 35 A fun book that comes with some you tube videos that I kind of fell into knowing nothing about the videos nor the story Can see the YA group eating these paranormal stories up watching the corresponding videos Interesting storylines with some interesting characters trying to find their niche in life while delving into the land of ghosts goblins and things that go bump in the night ARC from NetGalley I have to thank Weinstein Books and Perseus Books for sending me an ARC of this title I didn't know anything about the YouTube Channel before I found out about this book I've always enjoyed a good ghost story and when I was younger I used to go to the library and check out all the true haunting books About 10 years ago I even went to a couple real haunted houses with my younger cousin and aunt and my mom One was a Bed and Breakfast called the Mason House Inn that is located in Bentonsport Iowa where we went and had a paranormal expert named Christopher Moon give us lessons on how to try to catch evidence of ghosts and even shared his own findings And we went up to a cemetery at night and it was pretty spooky So anyway when I heard about this book I was instantly interested based on the descriptionThe main character is Sunshine Griffith She and her mother have just moved from Texas to a small town in Washington state and into what Sunshine calls a creepy house And she likes the word creepy She uses it to describe just about everything the house the street that really only seems to contain their house and what is going on in the house Right away she gets a weird feeling in the house and starts hearing sounds Footsteps on the 2nd floor even though she figures out that the way it is carpeted up there she shouldn't be able to hear any footsteps even if there was someone up there She also hears whispering most of the time so uiet she can't tell what it is saying but sometimes she can And a little girl's laugh too And anyone who watches scary movies knows just how creepy that sound can be Next things start being in different places than where she left them And then one night she and her mom are both home and hear what sounds like a little girl yelling for help and splashing noises They run upstairs to where the bathroom door has slammed shut and water seems to be coming out as it seems the tub is overflowing But when the open the door there isn't anyone in there The water is pretty gross though as if the pipes were dirty and it leaves a slimy coating on everything that touches it After they get it all cleaned up it's as if her mom has lost all memory of what happened as if it got scrubbed away as they cleaned And now that Sunshine should actually have her mom on her side her mom acts almost angry when Sunshine brings it up Her mom begins to change as well growing distantYes she started a new school And she does make a friend pretty uickly You see Sunshine was really into photography at her old school she even has a really fancy camera and likes to develop the film herself When she signs up for the art class at her school it is almost as if it was an afterthought All the students do all day is get stuff from a craft supply closet and make sculptures out of pipe cleaners and other similar things The teacher is really weird and creepy Sunshine is fortunate enough that a nice boy sits across from her the first day Nolan talks to her and really becomes a good friend When she finds out that his grandfather really used to be into paranormal things and that Nolan respected and paid a lot of attention to what his grandfather did she feels able to share what is going on in her house And together they start to investigate these strange events Together they will learn why Sunshine is seeing these things but now her mom isn't There is also someone that is an unknown narrator who chimes in every once in awhile And this person knows exactly what Sunshine is dealing with But they don't come forward and reveal themselves until the very end A great story The haunting is very well set up in the story and I like the whole background story that we learn bit by bit throughout the book I'm guessing there will be a seuel or a series you might say as the ending of the story leaves us I enjoyed it so much I had to go start looking through the YouTube channel The Haunting of Sunshine Girl Network I got through a few very short like 1 2 minute videos tonight and subscribed as well I'll be going back as I have time to watch on There are uite a few similar things in the video to the book so far but it is different enough to be its own thing I love a well done ghosthaunted house story don't you?Some books are just sheer brilliant entertainment where you are truly in a world of pleasure as the book absorbs you into it's imaginary world This was one of those books for me and I really did enjoy it a lot I read it really uickly with a need to know what happens next The author Paige McKenzie has a very popular YouTube channel centered around the Haunting of the Sunshine Girl I have never seen it in fact had not heard of it but after I realised it I wondered how that would translate over to a novel It did just fineIn a nutshell a young sixteen year old teenager and her mother move to a creepy old house in a new town so that her mother can take up a new job Before long thing are going bump in the night and things are not making sense in a practical way The book is atmospheric the creepy tension builds slowly as different things occur Will anyone believe Sunshine about what's going on in the house? Sunshine is a uirky girl dresses differently drawn to taxidermy and ancient books Let's just day she's not in the cool crowd at school but I loved her for that She's s mature sixteen too which helped This is a haunted house ghost story but it's done SO WELL because there is in depth background into why it's happening and what is meant to happen It's not just random in other words It's spooky enough without being terrifying it's not a gore filled horror book it's spine tingling creepy writing that has a very interesting plot wrapped around it Don't let the marketed to the YA audience aspect put you off I am 43 and yes there are a few teen characters but that's about it the book will please those of all ages It throws in ancient lores and legends and the rules of playing with the ghosts even helping the ghosts who are stuck here and need help moving on If you like a good yarn a book that kicks off early with something interesting then does not stop characters that not only develop but transform at times and most of all a haunted house a good ghost some bad evil demon ghosts gone bad and a story behind it all that makes for some fascinating reading then grab this one It's a very enjoyable read Kudos to Paige McKenzie for this her first novel and making it develop from her YouTube channel No doubt lots of her YT followers will be reading the book And hooray for no sappy teen love story weaved in4 45 stars from me Fabulous piece of creepy fiction that you won't want to put down I received a copy of this book from the publisher Weinstein Books in return for an honest review many thanks Despite the ghostly presences which follow our heroine I wasn't sure how creepy this was; still I found McKenzie's The Haunting of Sunshine Girl a page turner Sunshine is likable has a uirky personality and apparently is a Luiseach beings who aren't exactly human but have the ability to help spirits pass on In addition to preparing to help the spirit of a small child as well as her own mother who has been possessed by a water demon Sunshine is also being recruited to repair a rift between our world and the spirit world Not much is revealed about the rift or how it can be repaired I'm sure there's about that and a mysterious mentor who doesn't show his face here in the second book The book was fast paced especially as we drew near the life and death conseuences on New Year's Eve The end didn't wow me but I plan to read the seuel 35 stars
