Tunnel of Bones by Victoria Schawb Cassidy Blake #2 Release Date: September 3rd 2019 by Scholastic Genre: Middle Grade > Historical Fiction > Ghosts Source: Scribd Format: Audiobook Summary:
Trouble is haunting Cassidy Blake . . . even more than usual.
She (plus her ghost best friend, Jacob, of course) are in Paris, where Cass’s parents are filming their TV show about the world’s most haunted cities. Sure, it’s fun eating croissants and seeing the Eiffel Tower, but there’s true ghostly danger lurking beneath Paris, in the creepy underground Catacombs.
When Cass accidentally awakens a frighteningly strong spirit, she must rely on her still-growing skills as a ghosthunter — and turn to friends both old and new to help her unravel a mystery. But time is running out, and the spirit is only growing stronger.
And if Cass fails, the force she’s unleashed could haunt the city forever.
If I thought City of Ghosts was amazing, Tunnel of Bones is even more epic. The story behind this one was much more creepy (anything dealing with a kid ghost is always just a little bit more creepy). Tunnel of Bones takes place in Paris and I’m really curious to know if this place is real, but I’m too scared to look it up. The idea of a huge graveyard of bones under a beautiful city is just a mind blowing idea. The stories of the people who were buried and who were lost under there just adds to the curious factor of it all.
Cassidy’s extreme actions to find answers is what I like about her the most; this time it lands her a new friend and an interesting lesson in history. The way Schawb weaves stories of past and present is done so flawlessly. The banter between Jacob and well, anyone, was the best part of this book. Then again it’s the best part of every book in this series.
We do get to know a little more about Jacob in this one; not enough to really have a full story but we get a look into a few things. I think it helped to make his friendship with Cass even stronger. I don’t ship them but I do enjoy their pure friendship!
I’m currently listening to the 3rd book and I’m really hoping this isn’t the end!
It’s that time of the year again when I do Middle Grade March.
I thought I got that idea from an Owlcrate thing they did a few years ago but I could be wrong? I just searched there videos and I didn’t find anything for it this year. But this is a month I gather up all most of the middle grade books I didn’t get into last year… or DNF’d like 4 years ago. You know what, there are no rules to this, ok? lol a few are from my Owlcrate JR boxes and a few are books I’ve had sitting on my Kindle TBR and one series I fell in love with this year. So, I’m pretty excited.
My anxiety has been unreal the last few days and it’s not only draining but it’s also making me angry, which hasn’t happened in a long long while. I mean I’m more likely to speak my mind, if that’s the case but also, anger drains me. So I’m looking forward to picking up a few of these that are whimsical and full of adventure and fantasy.
Physical Books TBR;
All but one title is from Owlcrate Jr. And most have paranormal or fantasy themes to them. I love middle grade titles, I wish young adult could have an entire series with absolutely no love interest!
I’m super excited to get into The Midnight Hour as well as Cinders & Sparrows the most!
I stumbled on this challenge while watching an OwlcrateJR YouTube video for the month of March where they talked about the middle grade titles they hoped to read in March and I thought it was an awesome idea to join in. My TBR is overflowing with middle grade titles I have yet to get around to!
Some of the titles will be from OwlcrateJR, and others will be ones that I’ve been meaning to get around to. I don’t exactly hope to read all of these titles, but at least half would be ideal!
A few Kindle reads I hope to get to; Breadcrumbsis a re-read but it’s one of my favs!
On Audible I’m aiming for The Land of Stories and An Enchantment of Ravensis one I really wanna get to! Does anyone else worry they’ll get lost while listening to an audiobook? I always worry about that but I really wanna get some of my Audible TBR done and I figured this would be the perfect chance to do just that!
Are you participating in Middle Grade March? What are some titles you hope to tackle?
