Desires of the Dead (The Body Finder, #2) by Kimberly Derting

Summary from Goodreads

     Violet can sense the echoes of those who've been murdered—and the matching imprint that clings to their killers. Only those closest to her know what she is capable of, but when she discovers the body of a young boy she also draws the attention of the FBI, threatening her entire way of life.

    As Violet works to keep her morbid ability a secret, she unwittingly becomes the object of a dangerous obsession. Normally she'd turn to her best friend, Jay, except now that they are officially a couple, the rules of their relationship seem to have changed. And with Jay spending more and more time with his new friend Mike, Violet is left with too much time on her hands as she wonders where things went wrong. But when she fills the void by digging into Mike's tragic family history, she stumbles upon a dark truth that could put everyone in danger.

Patterned Text Generator at     Desires of the Dead begins with a hot new guy popping up at school and bringing with him, a creepy little sister. I can't decide which book in this series I liked best. This one was just so headturning! Violet is all up and down in this book. She has a hard time dealing with her gift and regrets the harm that it causes the people she loves. She does a lot of stuff I disagree with like withholding information from Jay and her parents. Even though, she and Jay's relationship grow greatly throughout the story and he proves to be just as sweet and caring as I thought he was. He is really understanding about Violet and doesn't give up on her.
    What I love about The Body Finder books is that they are equally romance and mystery. I think Kimberly is the Queen of suspense and the scary scenes have me giggling nervously in class. This time the mystery is incredibly tricky and all over the place. You think that you have it, but then you are bamboozled again! I had a lot of fun reading this book and had to frequently stop for fear of a panic attack, but I had a choice I'd do it all over again!

"I'm Brian Harris. I sit behind you in English class." My head whips back to center. "You do?" I immediately regret saying this because he looks a little hurt by it. So I try to cover and say, "I mean, you do. That's right."

Night School (Blood Coven Vampires, #5) by Mari Mancusi

Summary from Goodreads

     After their parents' shocking revelation about their fae heritage and an attack on their lives, the McDonald twins are forced to hide out deep in the Swiss Alps at Riverdale Academy, a secret vampire slayer training facility. And with no way to contact their vampire boyfriends for rescue, they're going to have to play nice with the locals.

But when Sunny starts acting strange, Rayne realizes that there's more to fear at Riverdale than getting staked by the student body-leading to a showdown in Fairyland that may cost the twins their lives.

Patterned Text Generator at Filled with funny quips and interesting banter, Night School was a cool addition to the Blood Coven family to read. It was short and to the point, but overall an awesome story. Rayne and Sunny have two different personalities and make every chapter humorous and energetic. It certainly is unlike any vampire book or series I've ever read. Rayne is the most unique vampire/vampire slayer/fairy princess ever. I also like that it includes all kinds of fairy tales. It was surprising and brought back a lot of memories. I was a bit crestfallen when I realized that it was a book in a series. I had read the first book, but not any of the others. I was worried I would be lost having missed 3 books. I had no reason to worry because Rayne updated me at the beginning of the book. Usually, I find these decals annoying, but I definitely grateful for them this time! In fact, I think I will go back and read the other books just because I want more of Rayne and Sunny!
