    Oliver and his friendly ghostI liked some aspects of this book The whole communicating with the dead and helping them pass over to the other side was cool Oliver being a warlock and his relationship with Victor were also interesting I just wish some moments in this book were thought out better The way the blow out between Oliver and his mom seemed like an after thought Like how can we make it ok for Oliver to live with Ethel when his mom is still in the picture It played out weirdly I don't know there was just something about the writing style that didn't uite hit the mark for me However this is just book 1 in the series I'm hoping book 2 plays out better

    Paranormal spooky and mysterious So much to love in this couple💜💜This YA ghostly mystery stayed on the sweet side of spooky with an unlikely love story and connection Refreshing 👏👏The one thing that TRULY BOTHERED ME 🤬 and I thought completely UNLIKELY was the harsh treatment and dismissal our MC received from his mother She was a hastily drawn character with zero depth The fact that she was a main catalyst for events in this book made me twist up inside and want to yell at the author for writing such a two dimensional hyperbolic character Her characterization lost the book one star for me Bad mother aside I liked the rest of the characters even if some of the tertiary characters seemed like perennial stereotypes of teen dramas Even with this our MCs stood out and shone through the cardboard characters that populated the town They made me forget what I didn’t like and engrossed me in the plot story and romance I’m very much looking forward to reading the rest of the seriesI’m assuming the future books will give us danger and challenges for this group of humans and witches and “others”

    No rating since I DNF'd it at 9% Pretty cover and spooky gay description lured me in but this one's just not for me A little on the juvenile side than I'd anticipated

    They say to never judge a book by its cover and this book is the prime example The raven art is serious and beautiful of which this book is neither This novel can be described as a coming of age story with a hint of the supernatural The two biggest issues with this description and the book as a whole are that none of the characters grow or change over the course of the novel and there is no real suspense or fear in the paranormal elements Even though the main character can talk to ghosts there is no M Night Shyamalan twist In fact there are no plot twists because every important reveal was obvious and too predictable Each character is one dimensional; there is no growth in the book Too often typical cliches were drawn in and the characters felt unoriginal For example the elderly matron is always cooking sweets for her practically adopted grandson who is a teenage boy and therefore is always hungry Further the author is severely out of touch with how the teenage mind works The protagonist has much to struggle with and yet he blindly accepts every situation instead of uestioning himself getting mad at the world or generally reacting at all But let's talk about representation The main character is gay and he struggles with being closeted to everyone except his best friend In the book he comes out to his mom about than one secret he is hiding and the author draws a parallel for heterosexual readers In this world where magic can be found among certain few it can be difficult to tell parents about this lifestyle especially if said parent does not approve of using these gifts As important as this point is there is no subtly in this scene and his coming out lacks emotion The author also addresses heteronormativity in a uick scene uoted below between the protagonist and a potential love interest who uestions him about his close relationship with a girl from school Bailey is just my friend Well she's like my best friend who is my partner in crime but nothing romantic at all is going on there May I ask why? She seems like a lovely girlCrap There it was I hated that I had to sit there and contemplate my answer instead of just being like because I'm gayShe's not my typeEven though this scene feels a touch cliche it is perhaps the best conversation in the book Which of course is a reflection on the book's overdone and unoriginal nature It is not worth the time it takes to read and certainly does not deserve a series

Silence of Winter Cromwell Chronicles #1 Normal is overrated At least that's what Oliver Cromwell tells himself when he's being bullied for being different He's a lover of all things paranormal and when his nose isn't shoved into his sketchpad drawing haunted houses and monsters he and his best friend Bailey hang out in abandoned buildings and take long—very non romantic—walks through graveyards looking for ghostsEverything changes when they actually find oneFreaked out because he seems to be a sudden ghost magnet Oliver befriends Mrs Glass a psychic who lives in the Victorian manor at the end of his street With her help he discovers his special bloodline and uncovers abilities that allow him to begin helping the ghosts move on As if being sixteen wasn't already complicatedWhen Oliver meets Victor the charming and mysterious boy who lives with Mrs Glass he finds himself falling and falling hard Chasing ghosts is a lot less nerve wracking than falling in love though especially when the person you fall for has secrets of their ownThe sleepy town of Iris Hollow has plenty of spooky legends and history that entices tourists from all over And Oliver is about to find himself in the center of it all This is a young adult paranormal LGBT story with magic ghosts and heartwarming romance Guaranteed to make you smile laugh and maybe sleep with the light onTrigger Warning this story contains material that may be sensitive to some readers including bullying and self harm
