    You might love this book if you love Zooey Deschanel s adorkable types and the manic pixie dream bullshit, but if you re like me and 1 mute, 2 change the channel every time you see her face on TV, this book will make you want to rip your hair out strand by strand The main character s name is Sunshine.I have high standards for horror, and this book doesn t meet any of them It was a watered down version of Dark Water no pun intended with a sad attempt at using Fatal Frame s photography schti You might love this book if you love Zooey Deschanel s adorkable types and the manic pixie dream bullshit, but if you re like me and 1 mute, 2 change the channel every time you see her face on TV, this book will make you want to rip your hair out strand by strand The main character s name is Sunshine.I have high standards for horror, and this book doesn t meet any of them It was a watered down version of Dark Water no pun intended with a sad attempt at using Fatal Frame s photography schtick with the most annoyingly cute and perky character in the entire fucking world She is so cute She is so sweet She is so clumsy She never cursesJeezus Loueezus, I sigh, wrapping my fingers around my phone and standing I turn my neck from side to side The air between my bones crackles and pops when I move I feel like an old lady, I say out loud. I wanted to strangle her 5 pages into the book The moments of fear are made absolutely anticlimactic because of how stupid and idiotic and childish the main character seemsGood golly I shout, folding my arms across my chest and balling my hands into fists My heart is racing Another chill runs down my spine, and then another, and another, until it feels like I ll never be warm again I sit on my bed and shiver, my heart pounding. Don t get me wrong I m not saying that a character has to curse to be believable I m saying she has to be realistic, and a manic pixie dream girl in a horror just makes the entire book seem completely laughable Imagine Zooey Deschanel being adorkable in a horror movie That s what this book is I minclined to laugh than be afraid.The main character is so forcedly cute She is an epitome of the weird yet adorable girl trope She is super fucking special, being 1 Adopted, and she s so special because of it Softly I say, I m adopted What Nolan asks, still not looking up from his book I m adopted, I repeat louder, and start pacing at a normal speed You re right, he nods But those tons of people aren t in the situation you re in2 With such wonderfully different eyes And my eyes are green, not gray like Mom s Ashley says they look like cat s eyes You know how some people s eyes change color depending on the light or what they re wearing Not mine They re always the same milky, light kind of green And even in the dark my pupils never get big I ve literally never seen anyone with eyes that look like mine. 3 She s so different because she dresses differently than everyone else She wears pajamas with puppies on them, as well as footie pajamas oh, wait, that was 8th grade I don t dress like a crazy person or anything like that I just don t dress like most of the other kids I know either I like crocheted hats and scarves, T shirts with funny little icons on them, and long sleeves that hang past my wrists. 4 She talks to her dog, collects unicorns, has a stuffed taxidermy owl called Dr Hoo, and loves art and photography Math and sciences Fuck that I allow myself to zone out a little bit and count the minutes until third period, the only class I really care about visual arts. Really I hate, hate, hate adorkable characters, and this book was nearly intolerable There was very little fearful about it I had a better time watching Dark Water. If you wanted a good horror book, go read the most excellent Anna Dressed in Blood

    I love a well done ghost haunted 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 quickly, 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 I love a well done ghost haunted 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 quickly, 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 fine.In 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 quirky 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 in 4 4.5 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 quirky 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 betwe 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 quirky 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 sabout 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 consequences on New Year s Eve The end didn t wow me, but I plan to read the sequel 3.5 stars

    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 guy love interest because it s YA, nobody can last a month past 16 without a love interest, obvs is cute enough, if a little too convenient.But then the story turned into something completely different It stopped being about the haunting really, a 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 guy love interest because it s YA, nobody can last a month past 16 without a love interest, obvs is cute enough, if a little too convenient.But then the story turned into something completely different It stopped being about the haunting really, and definitely stopped being creepy It sabout 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

    Rating 2.75 Creeptastic quote 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.


  8. Diane S ☔ Diane S ☔ says:

    3.5 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 Bentons 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 description.The 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 quiet 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, growingdistant.Yes, she started a new school And she does make a friend pretty quickly 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 sequel, 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 quite a few similar things in the video to the book so far, but it is different enough to be its own thing
