      You guys There are cheerleaders in this book And guess what They re perfectly nice people They go out of their way to befriend the New Girl in School even though GASP she isn t a cheerleader There are only two characters in the book that they re less than totally friendly towards One is so unpleasant that she s earned it, the other has made every effort to make them believe that he s than earned it This so rare it s practically the YA equivalent of a unicorn Maybe you have to read a lot of YA f [...]

      I m using 2 in the rating it was okay sense There wasn t really anything to hate on in this book The concept was interesting and the characters were nice enough, if a bit bland It was a nice change to have a teens at school setting without outrageous bitchiness and douchery Even the cheerleaders were nice But the downside of this is that the conflicts get resolved too easily The supposed main plot with the ghosts isn t developed enough and ends up feeling like a side note to Charlotte being an o [...]

      Charlotte Silver s parents are ghost debunkers Yep I said ghost debunkers think Ghost Hunters on sci fi Sounds interesting right Yeah sure unless your a teen starting your senior year of high school Charlotte doesn t want to be a paranormal problem solver she just wants to fit in and be normal for her last yr of high school, but unfortunately for Charlotte that isn t going to happen.Her parents travel all over the country debunking ghost stories and their latest stop is in Charleston SC, which j [...]

      Here s something that I wasn t expecting much out of that actually turned into something pretty good Past Midnight actually brings something fresh to the table concerning ya paranormal stuff This is not your typical girl gets haunted by a ghost in a creepy house story It s different in the sense that Charlotte s parents are paranormal debunkers, like the ones you see on TV.What really made this cool was that the author definitely knew her stuff, by having them use EVP recorders, thermal heat ima [...]

      Past Midnight started out really nice I was quickly hooked and curious to find out what the ghosts wanted from Charlotte and most importantly I wanted to know what really happened to Adam and what that big secret was that Jared wasn t allowed to tell Finally, when the time came and Charlotte figured it out I thought it was a pretty lame secret I was really expecting something dramatic.Be warned, there is zero romance in this book Two cute guys are introduced and one of them seems to be Charlott [...]

      Rating B Genre YA Paranormal Review Past Midnight is the first book in the duly named Past Midnight series by Mara Purnhagen The rest of the books in the series are named at the end of this review.17 year old Charlotte Silver hasn t been able to stay in one place for long periods of time because her parents are world famous paranormal investigators Patrick and Karen Silver who debunk ghost sightings Charlotte and her older sister Annalise, even though they are part of the crew, have never been a [...]

      Got an ARC of this book straight from Harlequin YA Paranormal, and I must say I was very pleasantly surprised by its quality and readability Charlotte Silver is the oft overlooked younger sister in a family of ghost hunters This is less weird than it sounds Charlotte s parents do not actually believe in ghosts, they re interested in disproving claims of hauntings while being unable to explain away a couple of strange energy patterns they ve come across in their career Anyway, Charlotte happens [...]

      If you re looking at the post before this and thinking, What There is no way she could have possibly finished this book so fast , I understand However I assure you, I really did Read below to find out why Charlotte and her sister Annalise help their parents debunk ghost stories by proving their scientific origins The question is What happens if there is one that you just can t seem to disprove As a reader, and I know I say this often, it is extremely important that I feel invested in the charact [...]

      The book was about ghosts and spirits, but it was not frightening It was of explaining the background of experimenting spirits in certain places It included some facts about real devices used in the real world even in a fiction book This is a reader beware book because I am such a nerd on reading about ghosts or find these kind of topics interesting Also, this a book for teens because it was a very easy read and a t a lower reading level than for adults Mara Purnhagen is the author of four youn [...]

      This novel surprised me, and in a good way At first, I assumed the novel would have a pretty basic plot on ghosts, but I love ghosts and all kinds of ghost stories so I was willing to give it a go, either way It kept getting pushed to the back of my TBR pile, until one day I thought no, I m going to read this today And I m glad I did It centres around Charlotte A girl with slight insecurity issues, especially around her older, beautiful sister Her parents make their living investigating paranorm [...]

      This is of a 3.5 stars.I enjoyed the book, this I can say truly It s not a big mind blowing plot but anyway highly enjoyable Charlotte, her sister and especially her parents are something like ghost hunters, but not really Actually, the don t believe in ghost and rather call them energy But they are pretty famous for this and the family moves around a lot, always looking for a new case The film documentaries which is what made them famous in the first place For Charlotte and her sister, this is [...]

      Unless you ve been studiously avoiding noticing such titles, there s no mistaking that paranormal teen fiction has enjoyed an enormous raise in popularity in the past few years As such, authors are putting out their own stories to thrill entertain readers both young old Let s be honest teen fiction rocks regardless of how old you are With large amounts of similarly themed books entering the market it s difficult to find something that puts a different spin on things Purnhagen seems to have fou [...]

      Charlotte Silver has had an interesting life She s traveled all over the world with her ghost debunking parents, never staying in one place for very long All of that changes when they went to Charleston, and things go very wrong Charlotte gains a set of spiritual stalkers that follow her to their new home As if starting a new school while keeping her parent s occupation is hard enough, things get a little hairy when those spirits turn demanding She s start to question everything she thought she [...]

      Past Midnight wasn t a bad book It was your stereotypical paranormal YA novel, but it lacked anything special to make it stand out in its genre Charlotte Silver hasn t had a normal childhood Her parents, semi famous ghost hunters, and older sister Annalise, travel the world in search of debunking reported spirit activity All Charlotte wants is some normalcy a permanent residence, friends, and maybe even a boyfriend Her parents agree to buy a house and settle down long enough for Charlotte to com [...]

      I really enjoyed reading this book Charlotte was a fantastic main character She is smart and funny, and just seems like the girl next door like someone that you would want to be friends with The storyline was interesting and fun to read Once I picked up the book, I only set it down once because it was midnight and looked forward to picking it back up the next day There were so many different little mystery nuggets in this book I love books that make you wonder what s going on, where you re tryin [...]

      I really like books that have to do with ghosts and hauntings Sometimes they re fun, light and good natured and others are super scary and gruesome I would classify Past Midnight as the former because the main character is really comical about her paranormal obsessed family and their ghost hunting reality show Since I also really enjoy a good mystery, this book was right up my alley Ghost hunters trying to figure out the mystery of why some ghosts have decided to haunt their daughter It was so f [...]

      Review originally published at Cem s Book Hideout.I really liked this book, so than I first thought I would The book kind of has two main plots, the one involving Charlotte and the ghosts haunting her, and the other involving Charlotte s new friend at school, Avery Personally, I enjoyed the storyline with Avery than the ghosts attacking Charlotte one I don t really know why, but I certainly had sympathy in that part of the story than when the focus was specifically on Charlotte I liked the w [...]

      Ghosts are one of the paranormal creatures that I m late jumping on the bandwagon for, and they re really starting to grow on me Past Midnight was simply an absolutely adorable read, that is really the only way I could think to describe it It s another fantastic read from Harlequin Teen.I love Mara Purnhagen s ghosts in Past Midnight They weren t full on like ghosts like you are used to, but instead just like a shadow or a voice or an object moving, so it was just the energies of people I thou [...]
