Every Thursday I bring you a chance to relive a favorite book with quick glimpses at my reactions and predictions While I’m Reading (WIR).
*** I’m trying a different format this week, so let me know if you like it or not (if you care one way or the other) ***
Title: Unholy Ghosts
Author: Stacia Kane
Narrator: Bhani Turpin
I listened to Uholy Ghosts, so instead of page numbers for my reactions I have the time (as of the end of the quote). Within each spoiler are the quotes that resulted in the reactions below it. My reactions are copied from some of my bookmarks while reading (not all of them, because I go a little overboard). So if you just want reactions, don’t open the spoilers. But if you’ve read it and want to know exactly what part am I at, read them.
Chapters 1-12 of Unholy ghosts
Yikes… well that’s an image to get me started on…
End of Chapter 1 thoughts: Interesting start, kind of confused. Loving the narrator already!(00:15:44)
Ok well that’s different. I like.
oh shit. That’s bad.(00:44:04)
hmm not gonna argue that it was dumb move, but laughing out loud at her way of handling it.(00:46:50)
Tattoos – cool! Dulling senses with drugs when you’re going on the job… so stupid!(00:50:14)
Oh this is breaking my heart. Poor kid. And the narration is incredible.(00:56:03)
Damn Chess, best way to fix a high is to drugs to come down? *shakes head*
Poor Brain 🙁 He was so excited too!
End of Chapter 4 thoughts: I’m frustrated with Chess – thousands of dollars debt for drugs and going on the job loaded?
And this poor kid – breaking my heart. Is it possible that he’s a ghost… the innocent victim?(01:26:44)
Well what a creepy dictatorship that is! No thank you…(01:32:34)
Hmmm… does that have something to do with the airport?(01:35:05)
That’s an ominous question(02:39:25)
Yeah, you’ve been stupid. Maybe it’s all the drugs? That’s something you could do to change things – quit!(02:42:09)
Man, I would not have guessed that was Terrible. After the way he was with Brain, I didn’t expect him to be tender to anyone!(02:42:28)
Girl! You ain’t doing it right then!
End of Chapter 9 thoughts: So I’m creeped out by what’s going on with the ghosts – in a great way. I’m so incredibly frustrated with Chess and all the drugs. I just want to shake her! Terrible is starting to seem like quite the complex character… Is this what Terrible Fever is all about?(02:54:30)
I think I like Doyle. He seems well-intentioned.(02:58:45)
Eww! Nasty! Yuck!!!!(03:20:27)
Man this world is just so sad. Breaking my heart over and over.
End of Chapter 12 thoughts: I’m having a little trouble keeping everything straight. The slang is rough and the magical world is just so complex – but I think I like it. I’m curious about Doyle, he seems like a nice guy. And Terrible keeps unfolding these unexpected layers. Of course I’ve heard so much raving about him already, so I’m naturally curious.
