Mini-Review: Never Fear the Reaper by Ashley Pagano

I’m going to do something a bit different for certain reviews. Since I am an official reviewer at OnlineBookClub, I tend to complete several reviews on their site. However, one of the rules is that I’m not allowed to copy and paste my exact review anywhere else online. Therefore, I end up re-writing a new review when I post here, and it becomes tedious and a bit of a pain to write two different reviews of the same book and my feelings/thoughts haven’t changed.

Instead, I’ll post mini-reviews of those particular books on this site. This way, I can still share what I’m reading and my thoughts, but not get weighed down on the pressure of writing two full-length reviews of the same book.

So, here’s my first one!


This book has been officially reviewed for OnlineBookClub. To read my full review, you can go here: Never Fear the Reaper

Genre: Young Adult/Paranormal
Rating:
 2-star-review out of 5
OBC Rating: 2 out of 4 stars
Themes: Honesty, Trust, Good vs. Evil


Book Cover

~ The Good ~

  • Strong female lead
  • Paranormal activity is captivating

~ The Not-So Good ~

  • Character perspective was not consistent
  • Male lead was unlikable at times and pretty bland
  • Needed more editing
  • The romance seemed forced and unrealistic (in turn, teaches young girls to have sex with their boyfriends after a couple of dates)

~ Recommendation? ~

Not to any of my friends, but maybe teenagers might enjoy most of the book.
