    4 starsWhen I first found out that we were getting another Robyn Schneider book, I was SO EXCITED. I've read both of her earlier books and really enjoyed them.Despite this, I eventually came of my high and was a tad wary because as much as I loved her first two books, they were extraordinarily similar in plot structure and ending, just with slightly different characters & settings, and I hoped Invisible Ghosts, with its different cover style, wou...

    *An ARC was provided by Edelweiss and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.*"And that's the part the children's stories never tell you. They never explain that it's okay to let go of things you once needed and find others to take their place."I have loved Robyn Schneider books since I was an awkward, oddball sixth grader. I remember reading The Beginning of Everything and falling head over heels for her writing, her prose, and of course...

    Invisible Ghosts is a standalone YA contemporary romance with a twist.This was my first book by this author. I had no idea what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. I could not put this book down.The story takes place in Southern California. The narrator is 16 year old Rose (1st person POV). Her brother died. Her best friend moved away. She was hiding and not really living at all.I have always enjoyed books with psychic elements or ghosts. ...

    I love me some Robyn Schneider. This book is fantastic - ghosts, love, and loads of nerdy references.

    Note: I received a free ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Invisible Ghosts is officially my favorite Robyn Schneider novel. From start to finish, it was heartfelt, unusual, and surprisingly relatable. When Rose's brother, Logan, died years earlier and showed up as a ghost, Rose didn't question it. She missed her brother so much she ignored the fact she might be losing her mind, and spends all her after-school hours watching ...

    This was an enjoyable, unique read. I loved the magical realism in this, and the way it was executed. It was a perfect physical representation of grief. I loved how seeing ghosts was tied into grief, and the journey to letting go of that grief. That was my favorite part of the book, and it was executed perfectly. I related to the main character a lot - especially with wanting to be part of a different friend group and have fun but having a barrie...

    (Full disclosure, I read an advanced reading copy of this, but I can only assume the final product is just as captivating as the ARC).This is a great story depicting the struggle of letting uncontrollable events dictate your life and how to get past them. It's also a perfect description of high school and the struggle of trying to fit in to a group, and/or longing for the group you used to have; as well as navigating romantic relationships in the...

    It was a short and sweet read but It dealt with some heavy issues of letting go of things that sometimes hold you back. I had a little bit of a hard time liking the main character but she came through in the end. And the ending might of made me tear up a bit... I'm not crying, you're crying! I'm definitely going to check out the author's other works!

    This book was everything. I absolutely loved TBoE & Extraordinary Means and was so excited when I saw this book was coming out! I love the connection that Rose has with her brother and I love that she reconnects with her old friend group. I love the connection her and Jamie share. Most of all I love that she learned how to be herself.

    Reminded me of Charlie St. Cloud, and although it was a nice story, I wish there had been more explanation regarding how Rose could see ghosts. When Jamie moved back in town, he and Rose fell into instant love which was irritating. Even though this is a paranormal book, it concentrated more on the romance and Rose finding her way back to her former theater friends.

    This was such a lovely surprise? I got a stack of ARCs from EpicReads recently and this was the first one I tackled. It was so, so cool to see the supernatural so effortlessly tied to reality? And for it to have the true essence of a GHOST STORY without losing its contemporary essences either? Very well done. I loved it. I'll be buying it when it comes out in June.

    Ugh Robyn Schneider has made me cry again!! Seriously though, this book is so beautifully written, full of poignant observations on high school and realistic depictions of friendships. It made me laugh more times than I can count. Definitely recommend!!!

    I stand by my statement that Robyn Schneider is the queen of contemporary. I loved this one, just as I loved her others. The whole story was a perfect blend of contemporary, romance, and paranormal. Review to come!

    I loved this book was about relationships and family. It was nice to active parents in their daughter's life. I loved her theater friends and Jaime. Logan was cool and loved the vibe from him. I did see mention of medieval times. :)

This in no way had any effect on the integrity of my review**This book was so good! I wasn’t sure how exactly I would feel with ghosts in a contemporary novel but Robyn writes such solid contemporary novels that I had to take advantage of the ARC and give it a chance and I’m so glad.
