This story felt like the perfect vacation in the year of no vacations. As with all of Henry's other books, her characters feel so textured and real that it's impossible not to love them and feel completely entangled in their lives. The banter made me laugh out loud many times and really made Poppy and Alex come to life for me.
Reid's talent for creating distinct, complex characters really shines in this book. Even with a large cast of characters, she manages to get to the core of each of them, weaving the tapestry of the Riva family in a way that made me want to root for all of them, whatever their transgressions (but Nina, the family's relutant leader, most of all).
If you need more laughter in your life, you need more Samantha Irby in your life. No topic is off limits for Irby, from her dating history to her struggles with chronic illness, as well as the many highs and lows of her career and personal life. The perfect mixture of hilarious and heartfelt (though mostly just hilarious).
An orphan must navigate the perils of a spooky mansion with a cruel mistress in order to solve the murder of the witch family she never knew she had. With an eerie atmosphere and a clever, brave heroine leading the way, I couldn't help reading long into the night to find out what happened next.
A powerful, unsettling memoir told in stunning, lyrical prose. Machado offers us an intimate glimpse into her abusive relationship, where even the good times are heavy with a sense of dread, and the bad times are reminiscent of a gothic novel.
I wanted to LIVE in this graphic novel, vampires and all! I mean, a family of vegetables who spend their days tending the garden of their kindly witch guardian and selling their produce at the farmers market? It's just about as soothing as it sounds, even with the monster plot that drives the narrative. The illustrations go a long way when it comes to fleshing out the characters, as well as building a quaint and cozy world that I could have gone on reading about forever.

A satisfying conclusion to a trilogy about a girl and her best (ghost) friend who travel the world helping restless ghosts find peace. I loved the vivid settings and charming cast of oddball characters. This series is great for readers interested in spooky stories, world travel, and history.
