    I wasn't expecting this to be as good as Eliza and Her Monsters, but I was hoping for something better than this.Now Entering Addamsville reads like it wants to be a fun mystery, dark paranormal, and heartfelt contemporary all at the same time without knowing how. The mystery feels like it's only sort of the main plot, the paranormal aspects are underdeveloped and not at all creepy, and the emotion never works because I was never able to sympathi...

    This was a paranormal story done right . Great characters, great atmosphere, and great story. Zora Novak is our main character she can see ghosts and fight demons called fire starters. The whole town basically sees her as trailer trash, she’s missing 2 fingers courtesy of one said fire starter, her dad is in prison for stealing money from half the town and her mom disappeared . I was thinking while reading this man this poor kid nothing ever go...

    DNF @ 48%Sigh. This had such potential ! I gave it a lot longer of a chance than I normally would have cause I just kept willing it to get better cause I loved this author’s previous works.Here’s why I DNF’d:- MC was honestly the worst she was super unlikable which I don’t mind when a character is complex and flawed but this character was just boring and awful. Her only personality trait was that shes a bitch and that she’s poor which w...

    This story is about Zora and the town she lives in which is called Addamsville. Zora can see ghost just like her mom who disappeared 4 years ago. After a mysterious round of fires and death all fingers point to Zora so it's up to her to prove she had nothing to do with it. I picked up this book because I felt like it would have made a perfect October read with ghost and mystery. I had a hard time getting into this story. I wanted more interaction...

    One of my most anticipated good reads of the year!
  • Reading_ Tam_ Ishly
    I am so glad I picked up this book today.It's just perfect to start this month with such a witchy, ghostly, paranormal read.And yes, I am so happy to read a book for the first by the author and I am not at all disappointed.💞 What I consider really good about this read:The characters and the chemistry between them (the good, the bad and the ugly alike!) and the events/situations surrounding them have been developed so well that you just do not ...

    If this book doesn’t get a sequel, I’m rioting. IT WAS THAT GOOD.
  • Victoria Bryan
    When the book isn’t even out yet, but you already want a sequel A solid 4.75I was lucky enough to receive an ARC for this book at BookCon and that's why I am able to provide this review. First, let me start by saying I loved every second of this book and the second I finished it I wanted to start reading it all over again. Although the blurb on the back of the book compares Now Entering Addamsville to Stranger Things mixed with Buffy the Vampir...

    i hope y'all loved this more than i did bc i'm ready to pack my bags and head to Disappointment Dr. for the rest of my foreseeable future from the author who wrote two of my FAVOURITE contemporaries, i assure you, i am the one who's the most disappointed right now :(((((((((((((((((i seriously was so confused throughout the entire book. and if you ask me right now what the book is about, i still can't give you a coherent response because i SERIOU...

    Is there anything worse than reading a new book by an author who wrote one of your favourite books.. and not liking it? Worse, wanting to DNF it after like twenty pages?Okay, there are many many worse things, but roll with it.NOW ENTERING ADDAMSVILLE was such a dissa-aca-pointment (one day I'll stop referencing these movies but today is not that day #pitchperfect4lyfe). It's not that I had major hopes for this story in general; I just expected to...

    How could you convince people of the truth when they had already decided what version of the story they wanted to believe? When George Masrell’s home is engulfed in fire in the middle of the night, with 80 year old George inside, Zora quickly becomes the town’s prime suspect. Zora is a Novak and in Addamsville Novak’s are well known, but not for anything good. And when your mom disappears, your dad goes to jail, and the whole town hates y...

    You can find this review on my blog Shades of Paper. “When your mom disappears, your dad goes to jail, and the whole town hates you on sight, sometimes you get it in your head to start doing stupid things to ease that anger. Stupid things like hunting firestarters alone.” Now Entering Addamsville was one of my most anticipate releases of this year, and I was so excited to pick it up as soon as possible. I’ve adored the other two b...
  • Sharon
    Here are some of my thoughts:• This is certainly different from Zappia’s other works. I have enjoyed it. My favorite thing about this is seeing the developing friendship of angry, outcast Zora and her rich, pampered cousin, Artemis. They both have misconceptions of one another, but they learn to grow together and trust each other.• I also enjoy the friendships, Mads, Lorelei, and Hal. It is great that despite Zora feeling lonely and isolate...

    2.5/5 starsI loved the author's previous book, Eliza and Her Monsters. So I was excited to get to read another YA book by this author.This book is a Young Adult contemporary book. But it is mostly a YA paranormal story. I do like ghosts. But unfortunately this book does not focus on ghosts. It focuses more on other paranormal elements, which I didn't really like.The narrator is 18 year old high school student Zora Novak (1st person POV). The stor...
  • Alaina
    THIS BOOK WAS SO GOOD! I definitely recommend the audio guys!Now Entering Addamsville was such a fun book. Once I saw the title I just knew I had to get my hands on it. One, I love absolutely everything about the Addams family. Two, this book was just a blast to listen to. Three, now I really wished it was October.In it, you will meet Zora. She is a high school senior who definitely has a lot on her plate. Her mom disappeared, her dad is in jail,...
  • Danielle (Life of a Literary Nerd)
    I guess this was okay? I didn't really enjoy it but it wasn't bad enough to dnf. Mostly just blahs. I wanted this to get me in the fall spirit, but that didn't happen. I was expecting a spooky atmosphere, a quirky town, and a family mystery, but I was just so underwhelmed by everything about Now Entering Addamsville that I know it's going to be one of those books that I instantly forget everything about it. The biggest problem I had with the stor...

    Thank you to Edelweiss and Greenwillow Books for the chance to review this title ahead of its release date.Francesca Zappia. That name makes me hit pre-order no matter what the plot is. No matter how the cover looks. Zappia has me spending my time and money on blind faith alone because the moment I finished MADE YOU UP, she became an auto-buy author, and I became a lifelong fan. What is this book about, you ask?Our protagonist is named Zora, and ...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 starsI got this ARC at BookCon and thank you to the publisher for providing it in exchange for an honest review.This was such a fun read! I was really looking forward to it because I absolutely loved Eliza and Her Monsters, and this one did not disappoint. Now Entering Addamsville is about a girl, Zora, who can see ghosts (her whole town is obsessed with ghosts but she is the only one who can see them) and she is being framed f...
  • Katie (patronusaurus reads)
    This book slaps.Okay but for real, this was so good! Now Entering Addamsville follows Zora, a high school senior who has Baggage with a capital B. Her ghost-seeing, demon-hunting mother disappeared a few years ago, and her father, dealing with his grief in a supremely negative way, swindled a bunch of people in town out of substantial amounts of money and ended up in prison. Zora, who can also see ghosts and hunt demons, has to try to save her to...

    I am cursed to hate all the books I read in October. I had hoped that Now Entering Addamsville would break the curse, with its fun Supernatural-esque vibes, but that hope was in vain. The atmosphere of the book is excellent. The characters are diverse; there's an impressive cast: THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN MY BOOK.The problem was that nothing. happened. in. this. book. 60% into the book is where the action starts, and it is a trek to get that far. Onc...

    rtc. just take my wallet, francesca. do it for morty the dead miner mascot. Ever wanted to know what a haunted Pawnee, Indiana would be like? Because this is it with the demonic fires, a girl with an axe, and ghosts occupying every space as the body count grows. Zappia knocks it out of the park with her first SFF book. For fans of spooky small towns with secrets, readers will love Zora's bristling anger as she framed for the strange fires. Born w...
