Kaylee Cavanaugh doesn't see dead people. She senses when someone near her is about to die.
And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally.MY THOUGHTS:
Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy in school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about her need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee knows who'll be next.
(summary taken from Goodreads)
The Soul Screamers series has to be one of my favourites of all time! The synopsis may not attract very many people because of how it's about bean sidhes (pronounced banshee), and let's face it: no one really wants to read about girls screaming for dead souls. But My Soul to Take was actually an amazing book!
Our heroine, Kaylee, is a sixteen-year-old girl that is extremely easy to like. She's kind and smart and has a killer sense of humor. And she's such a strong person; I find that really important in a likable character.
Plus, Kaylee has perfect charisma not only with Nash (the hot senior who turns out to be a bean sidhe like her), but her best friend Emma and the awesomely hilarious and sarcastic reaper Tod (who is my favourite character of all time!). The casts just fits extremely well together.
My Soul to Take is an quick and enjoyable read. Even though the summary doesn't exactly sound appealing, I definitely recommend this book to everyone and anyone anywhere. It has the right amount of humor, drama, and supernatural creatures to keep your eyes glued onto the pages until the very end. It's the perfect first book in a certainly-going-to-be good series!
BUY or BORROW?: This is a novel that I definitely want on my shelf!! Buy it!
