Doors lock of their own accord, writing appears on bathroom walls--and most horrifying of all--visions of a dead boy permeate her waking life. Thinking it was her mi...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight .Oooh this was such a gem! I had a hard time stepping away from the world once I got into it. So let us break down the positives and the less-than-positives, though the positives far outweigh anything else!What I Loved: •The entire story was so easy to become immersed in. Off the bat, the author does a great job of setting up the tone a...

    Official Comments: From the first gasp of fear to the final, heart-pounding moments, Nell's story will take your breath away.Unofficial Comments: This story had everything I love. Chelsea took my favorite elements and combined them into a fresh new mystery that had me compulsively turning the pages. From the scares to the romance, this book really does have it all!

    This was an enjoyable read detailing a haunted hotel mixed between the past and present. It was easy to connect all the pieces from the start so that was a bit of a let down. Lea's point of view was far more entertaining then Nell's; things actually happened with Lea while Nell experienced hallucinations multiple times a day. It grew tiresome a few chapters in.Part two arrives and confusion sets in. Pieces are forced to connect to obtain the illu...

    3.5 StarsThank you, NetGalley for the ARC. Remember Me has been described as a cross between Titanic and The Shining; a forbidden love story between a rich, upper crust socialite and the help combined with a haunted hotel that exists to torment and kill its victims. Alternating chapters are narrated by Nell, who moves into the hotel in 2019 and Lea, a guest in 1907. I very much enjoyed reading about each of their experiences at the hotel and was ...

    The Shining meets Titanic was the *perfect* comp for this. What a compelling, unique read! I loved both girls' prospectives from 1907 and 2019, and immersing myself in the gorgeous (and creepy) world of the Winslow Grand. Bobulski's books always pull at my heartstrings and this one is no exception.

    “I can feel myself losing something as I stare up at him, but I have no idea what it is. It terrifies and fascinates me in equal measure .” Trigger Warnings: Forced Marriage, Abusive Spouse, Physical Abuse, Mental Illness, Gun Violence, Death of a Loved One, Grief.When I saw a creepy looking cover and even spookier sound synopsis I knew that I had to sign up for this blog tour, so I could read an early copy of this book.

    'Remember Me' is a perfectly blended YA fantasy/mystery that will leave readers hanging on every word until the very end. I'm a huge fan of these genres, so when I read the description I knew I had to read it. It has all of the elements to make a book that I'm almost sure to love - ghosts, old haunted resorts, the ocean/beach, curses, mysteries, and love. I wasn't sure what to expect going in, but I'll admit that I had pretty high hopes. Luckily,...

    (I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).(This review may contain spoilers).Ideally, I'd give this book 3.5 stars out of 5. When I read the blurb, I was hugely excited. That, along with the cover of the book, really grabbed my attention. And there were a lot of bits that I really liked about the book. For example, the main characters. Both Nell and Lea were well-written, well-rounded characters, although I did feel that Lea ...

    Oh man, what a ride! I’m not sure what I was expecting to find between the pages of Remember Me, but what I did find was such a pleasant surprise. This book is an excellent example of a mixture between historical fiction and horror. Nell’s story has just enough intrigue, and just enough of a creep factor, to really make things interesting. To say that I was upset every time I had to set this down is absolutely a fair statement. I had a ton of...

    REMEMBER ME is an engaging mystery/thriller that goes back and forth through time. We follow Lea in the past when she stayed at the hotel and Nell in the present, as she lives there with her father now. Lea is engaged to Lon, whose family are titans in the steel industry. This is not a marriage of love, but of finances- her family has been hurting financially, and the marriage will help them recover financially. As she spends the summer with Lon,...

    This review and many others can also be found at Musings of a (Book) Girl.Content Warnings: gun violence, murder, suicideRemember Me by Chelsea Bobulski completely captivated me until the very end. I’ve found that, for me, a lot of YA horror has the tendency to focus completely on the scare factor without bothering with any of the other necessary story elements. Remember Me had everything I need in a book – good storytelling, multifaceted cha...

    This story spans 100 years, and between our two main characters Aurelia (1907) and Nell (2019). Nell’s dad accepts a job at the Winslow Grand Hotel and they travel across country to move into their new home. The hotel was built in 1879 and has seen many famous people and holds many secrets. Strange things keep happening, Nell begins seeing a little boy and sleepwalking. Some voice keeps calling out to her and then she meets strange but beautifu...

    I haven’t read too many YA Horror novels so when this one popped up for a tour I was so excited to sign-up for it because I want to expand my reading tastes. This was the perfect one for that because it’s a great mix of horror with historical aspects, duel timelines, and duel POV’s. It’s such a unique story and includes some great characters!Nell has moved around the past four years and now she finds herself in a historical mansion. Soon ...

    Opening line:"He'd known somehow, as he pulled the trigger, that death would not be the worst of what he would face."(after you read this book, go back and read the prologue again).Nell's dad loves working in the hospitality industry, so the two of them have moved a few times. This time, they are moving to the Winslow Grand Hotel, built in 1878. Nell has plans for her future, like going to a prestigious school where she can do ballet. She doesn't...

    ~*Check out all my reviews over on The Bent Bookworm!*~ I was not, honestly, expecting this book to be creepy. In my experience most YA books that try to be “horror” or even just plain mystery are usually only vaguely so. I am thrilled to report that Remember Me was better than most! I actually felt the hair on my arms raising at points. It was awesome! It did have a little trouble getting off the ground, in my opinion, but once the settings ...

    3.5 starsOld houses and hotels make for good hauntings and that’s what Nell discovers when she and her dad move to the Winslow Grand Hotel, a huge Victorian posh resort, the largest hotel her dad has ever worked for. Before they even walk through the lobby door, Nell’s uneasiness turns to near-panic and for no good reason as far as she can tell. Her dad’s somewhat precarious health is her main concern but this new feeling is different.More ...

    I received this book from a Goodreads giveaway, and waited about a month to actually start reading it because, paradoxically, I LOVE ghosts in fiction, and I can't stand horror. Finally finished it, and while the horror elements would have definitely made me uncomfortable in a movie, as a book I was able to get through them no problem. Phew!All in all... this book could have used some more work, but it was well written, I found the characters int...

    I was lucky enough to receive an advance readers copy of this book from the publisher and I am SO glad I did! It usually takes me a while to read a book, but I binge read Remember Me in a weekend. I COULD NOT put it down. The author sweeps the reader into the story in the prologue, and completely engulfs you in this tale of forbidden romance, societal expectations, and a haunting that has spanned over 100 years. It's told from the point of view o...

    So this for me is one of those stories that is like been there, done that...and sorry but done better in other books/movies. I would have liked this I’m sure if I was reading it as a teenager, but maybe now I’m just the wrong audience for it and can’t overlook my some things with the book in order to enjoy it. I wasn’t a fan of it being more so a romance focused novel than the horror aspect of it. Definitely agree with other reviewers who...

    This book was crap. Then it was REALLY GOOD. Then it was complete crap again.1/3 through, I wrote this reveiw: The problem with this book is that I freaking love the voice, images, style, and tone! It's a problem because the structure, plot, and focus suck toes. If you're an aspiring writer, here's your first lesson: mystery isn't a plot. Mystery can entice the reader to keep reading but mystery isn't a direct problem. Mystery isn't something to ...

    I really liked a lot about this book. While there was a curse at this hotel, something that can be common in ghost stories like this, I feel like it totally played out differently than I would expect. The fact that the way to solve the curse wasn't completely spelled out from the beginning was something that kept me reading and hanging on every detail to see if I could figure it out, which I didn't. I really enjoyed the back and forth between the...

    Oh. My. God!!! I got REMEMBER ME in the August box from Unplugged Book Box, and couldn’t be more thrilled. The feelings are the realest part. The fear, desperation, and pure love makes this book as amazing as it is. Nell and Lea had a way of being very similarly connected, but also being their own characters. Of course, the storyline and events (trying really hard not to spoil here!! Sorry for being vague!!) pushed everything over the edge from...

    *I recieved an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley for a blog tour of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own*This was just okay personally. This doesn't really bring anything new to the genre and I did predict piratically everything that happened. But it was a quick and easy read. The romance definitely makes it feel like the movie "Titanic." Full review to come on August 8th for my blog tour review.

    I was lucky to read an advance copy of REMEMBER ME and was entirely swept away by the beautiful prose of Ms. Bobulski and the mystery spanning the world of 1907 and the present day set in a lush, hundred-year-old grand hotel. Told through the POVs of two strong young women who must battle internal and external (read: haunted hotel!!) obstacles, this is a captivating read about family, duty, and following one's heart. Oh, and not for nothing, but ...

    I received this as an advanced reader's copy through a Goodreads giveaway. It did take me a while to get into this story, but some of that may have been when I was reading it...on a flight after an exhausting business trip. But once I picked it up again, I could not stop until I finished. You're left wondering until almost the very end if it will work out in Nell's favor. You'll have to read to find out.

    I received this book in my first "Unplugged Book Box ". Thank you Unplugged and Chelsea for this wonderful novel. I used to be an active paranormal/ fantasy genre reader but moved on to women's fiction or contemporary YA books. This book has drawn me back to the genre, and I am so glad this book reopened my eyes.

    An interesting book that has a plot very similar to the 1980 film, Somewhere in Time , especially time traveling to a nineteenth century-built island Grand Hotel and quotes such as "come back to me." Still, it was very well written and kept my attention.
