My Soul to Lose (Soul Screamers, #0.5)My Soul to Lose by Rachel Vincent

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I very much enjoyed this story and am looking forward to reading the entire Soul Screamers series.



Kaylee Cavanaugh is shopping at the mall with her best friend when she becomes overcome with anxiety and starts to scream. She finds her worst fears exposed when she awakes in a psychiatric hospital, where she tries to convince everyone that she's fine. All she wants is to go home; however, she fears that may not happen when the urge to scream returns accompanied by the shadows she sees surrounding another patient.



Everyone thinks she's crazy. Everyone except Lydia, a patient with some special abilities of her own...

Writing Reviews

I've recently realized that I may need to change the way I write my reviews. I know I need to include more than just my opinion of the book. The problem I seem to be having is that I have yet to determine how much I can say about a book without it being too much. Personally, I don't enjoy reading book reviews that leave me feeling as though I know the story and therefore don't need to read the book.

I plan to begin experimenting with different methods of writing reviews and ask my readers to bare with me as I experiment and find the way that best works for me.

Thanks and happy reading to you all.

I found this book to be rather interesting. Knowing that the fictional stories were in fact based on historical events allowed me to take a new perspective as I read. I found this to be a well written collection.

Thieves Get Rich, Saints Get Shot: A NovelThieves Get Rich, Saints Get Shot: A Novel by Jodi Compton

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


I received this book free through Goodreads First Reads.



I gave up on being able to finish reading this one. Although I thought the storyline and plot was decent, the pace was far too slow.
