Spirit Hunters

The Raine family moves from New York to the DC area after their middle child, Harper, experiences traumatic accidents that shock the area. Their new house is bigger than their old apartment, but the house was also well-known in the area for being…haunted.

Why this book?: I just got a Scribd subscription, and I found this one on it. I love paranormal stories with ghosts, so I’ve been dying to read this one since I’ve heard about it.

Review #179 // Help Wanted (Ashveil Academy #1) – J. Emery

Help Wanted (Ashveil Academy Book 1)To be able to get a specific present for her best friend’s birthday, Em has to get a job. Em is also failing in some of her classes, so she asks her new coworker to help her. Soon enough, though, Em can’t decide if she wants to date her new tutor and coworker, or if she wants to be him.

Why this book?: The author said there was ace-questioning and gender-questioning that the protagonist, Em, deals with. I needed that.

I would like to thank the author J. Emery for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
