Last time when I read a ghost story I was a child and I ll be honest with you ghosts were only fantastic creatures I was afraid of I used to have awful nightmares and I was scared to go to any place which looked abandoned and haunted Even later when I figured out that ghosts don t exist I had my share of scared to the death moments So you can easily imagine how I felt when I realized that Texas Gothic is a ghost story It wasn t that pleasant to read it at night after everyone went to sleep in my grandparents big old house which makes all kind of strange noises Yeah i m scaredy cat The Narayanpur Incident read a ghost story I was a child and I ll be honest with you ghosts were only fantastic creatures I was afraid of I used to have awful nightmares and I was scared to go to any place which looked abandoned and haunted Even later when I figured out that ghosts don t exist I had my share of scared to the death moments So you can easily imagine how I felt when I Confessions of a Listmaniac The Life and Times of Layla the Ordinary read it at night after everyone went to sleep in my grandparents big old house which makes all kind of strange noises Yeah i m scaredy cat

review Texas Gothic Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB Amy Goodnight knows that the world isn't as simple as it seems she grew up surrounded by household spells and benevolent ghosts But she also understands that normal doesn't mix with magic and she's worked hard to build a wall between the two worlds Not only to protect any ho. Five Reasons To Read Texas Gothic1 A good heroine Amy is 17 or so and she acts it She has plenty of appealing traits grounded sensible caring brave in a pinch smart in the mouth and her negatives shooting off said mouth occasionally doing stupid things for stupid or emotional reasons are framed by a good deal of self awareness It s so refreshing to spend 400 pages with a likable person who recognizes her own flaws without drowning in them Amy is one of the best2 Excellent supporting cast They are well drawn uniue without being hamfistedly uirky and introduced efficiently easy to remember and tell them apart and without sucking up pages in description or back story I m not one for romance but it s easy to see what there is to like in the cowboy next door3 It is powerfully short on stereotypes Usually small town Texas is shorthand for good old fashioned god fearing yokels who are inevitably torn asunder by Tremors worms or Chain Saw Massacres or what have you or else intolerant Bible beating hillbillies But while Barnett is fictional it reads real people speak in sensible ordinary English and behave in relatable realistic ways they just happen to love their Dr Pepper too4 Truly sophisticated writing By that I don t mean it s a hard read not at all But it s sprinkled with arcane references you don t need to have ever heard of the Mysteries of Udolpho or the Luftwaffe to enjoy the story they are passing mentions only but I am so glad to see a book that drops them in so craftily and to such good effect that it might actually inspire someone to go and look these things up and deepen their enjoyment of the story just that much Secondly Ms Clement is clearly a fan of deliberate under writing It would be cleverness enough to name the women of the Goodnight family as she has Amaryllis Delphinium Hyacinth and so on But never once does she mention that they are all named after flowers It s a rare author that is confident enough in her skill that she doesn t feel the need to draw attention to it so if you don t notice you lose nothing but if you do you are that much profoundly impressed5 A very well crafted mystery Jaded and cynical as I am it is so nice to get through a whole book without rolling my eyes and thinking gee I wonder where THIS is going And to be fair there is a little of that you know as soon as Young Mr Cowboy turns up that he and Amy surely will have considerably screen time together But I was just so pleased to see how the author broke the mystery up into a hundred little pieces and doled out one or two to every scene She has a real knack for weaving important things into completely natural and ordinary conversation and it makes each page pay off so wellBonus Reason It made the 2012 ALA List of Best Fiction for Young AdultsAnd at the end of it there is really no better praise to give this book than that it is 405 pages and every one of them is put to exceptionally good purpose
