Review: Bad Girls Don’t Die by Katie Alender

Alexis thought she led a typically dysfunctional high school existence. Dysfunctional like her parents’ marriage; her doll-crazy twelve-year-old sister, Kasey; and even her own anti-social, anti-cheerleader attitude. When a family fight results in some tearful sisterly bonding, Alexis realizes that her life is creeping from dysfunction into danger. Kasey is acting stranger than ever: her blue eyes go green sometimes; she uses old-fashioned language; and she even loses track of chunks of time, claiming to know nothing about her strange behavior. Their old house is changing, too. Doors open and close by themselves; water boils on the unlit stove; and an unplugged air conditioner turns the house cold enough to see their breath in.

Alexis wants to think that it’s all in her head, but soon, what she liked to think of as silly parlor tricks are becoming life-threatening–to her, her family, and to her budding relationship with the class president. Alexis knows she’s the only person who can stop Kasey — but what if that green-eyed girl isn’t even Kasey anymore?

I read this book over 3 years ago, so I’m going to try to remember what happened in it enough to review it. Possession? Dolls? Haunted houses? Vengeful spirits? This was exactly the YA horror book I was looking for, and while this book wasn’t exactly real Spooky or Scary, it was a lot of fun to read. I still really loved it. It might have just been me though, I don’t get spooked easily while reading a book.

In the beginning, for whatever reason, I had low expectations for this book. But when I started reading it, I was surprised how much I instantly liked it. I’ve read a lot of books where I constantly check the page number I’m on and I’m like “Ugh, is the chapter over yet?” and I’m so bored. But I also have read a lot of books that just suck me in so much that after a while, when I check what page I’m on, I’m like “Wow, I’ve read that far already?” This book falls in that category.

Besides the Pranormal that was happening, this book also had a nice romance, while I didn’t love the romance, I didn’t mind it. I loved that the romance was slow-paced, and it didn’t take up the whole book. It was put in here and there, but it wasn’t a huge part of the book, which I’m glad about.

This book was fast paced, and kept me hooked from page one! I didn’t want to put it down. I had so much fun with the creepy ghost related paranormal vibes. I’ve read most of Katie Alender’s Books and loved them all. I’m not usually a fan of Paranormal books but they just work in her books.

That’s all for this review! Hopefully you still enjoyed this review despite it being vague due to not being able to remember much from it. I really need to start doing reviews more regularly, like as soon as I’ve finished a book so It’s still fresh in my mind. Anyway, let me know in the Comments what you thought of this! Have you read this Book? Or anything else written by this Author?
