I thought that Touch of Mischief was a really cute short that gave a glimpse into the workings of the Academy group and how Sang was integrating with them. It was a hilarious story that I was sad to see end. It was actually too short in my opinion (but probably because I am in dire need of more Academy boys!). In this short, we got a glimpse of how the boys celebrate Halloween, and it definitely got me excited to see what happens during Christmas. Overall, it was a cute and funny read that got me excited for the books to come.

It was interesting to see more of his background, especially because it definitely complicated the plot. That being said, this book revolved around three things—Sang’s growing attraction for all of the boys, the homecoming dance that may be the target of a bomb threat, and Silas’ past and family catching up with them and threatening to pull him under. That being said, like all of the Academy books so far, this book was absolutely interesting and engaging. It would appear as though C.L. Stone is nowhere near losing her momentum as she blasts through these books—interested of things getting boring, they are constantly getting more interesting, which is a hard thing to achieve with 7.5 books in the series so far. And one more thing that I would like to mention—the way the Stone incorporates characters from the companion series, The Scarab Beetle […]

Review: Push and Shove by C.L. Stone

Check out my review of Introductions (The Ghost Bird Series #1) Check out my review of First Days (The Ghost Bird Series #2) Check out my review of Friends vs. Family (The Ghost Bird Series #3) Check out my review of Forgiveness and Permission (The Ghost Bird Series #4) Check out my review of Drop of Doubt (The Ghost Bird Series #5) I had been looking forward to getting this far into the series because it was released that something major would happen in this book—Sang’s first kiss! Push and Shove had a nice balance of things—action, suspense, mystery, and romance. Yes—we actually get some romance! The boys and Sang are still working towards some mysteries that are plaguing Ashley Waters—the Vice Principal is still missing, the Principal is still hovering, Mr. Blackbourne is still the target of an unidentified bomber, and Sang and the boys are still trying to figure out the identify of the masked man who warned her against the boys. Add in the fact that Nathan’s abusive father makes and appearance and Sang is starting to cave into the boys’ affections, and you’ve got yourself and extremely engaging book. I literally could not put it down if I wanted to—there was so much at stake in this book it wasn’t even funny. As I mentioned, Sang gets her first kiss in this book! I’m not going to say who, but […]

Review: Drop of Doubt by C.L. Stone

Check out my review of Introductions (The Ghost Bird Series #1) Check out my review of First Days (The Ghost Bird Series #2) Check out my review of Friends vs. Family (The Ghost Bird Series #3) Check out my review of Forgiveness and Permission (The Ghost Bird Series #4) Now that Sang’s family problems have been dealt with for the most part, they boys have returned to Ashley Waters on their secret Academy mission. However, after Sang’s phone number is leaked into the school, Sang begins to get threatening anonymous calls, pushing Sang and the boys into lockdown mode. There was a ton of action in this book! I think that this was the most suspenseful one yet—there is a masked stranger, threatening calls, the reappearance of some bullies, and a crazy girl who is bent on claiming one of the boys. There was so much going on that there was never a dull moment, but at the same time, the pace wasn’t too fast to keep up with. We get a bit more of a glimpse into the Academy, but, like the title said, there is a bit of doubt that is instilled into Sang. That’s the only thing that bothered me about this novel—how easily Sang began to doubt the boys that so obviously care for her. I got over it after a while, but it was a bit shocking to […]

Review: Forgiveness and Permission by C.L. Stone

Check out my review of Introductions (The Ghost Bird Series #1) Check out my review of First Days (The Ghost Bird Series #2) Check out my review of Friends vs. Family (The Ghost Bird Series #3) Forgiveness and Permission’s plot has shifted its focus back to what is going on at the school. There were some scary moments and some creepy moments. I am disliking the Principal and Vice Principal of the school less and less. That being said, they were definitely making things difficult, but also interesting. I think that we are getting closer and closer to seeing why exactly the boys’ Academy group was sent into Ashley Waters. Also, the tension is building between Sang and all the guys—even a bit with Mr. Blackbourne and Dr. Green. It’s a bit amusing to see Sang freaking out about it, but it definitely says something good about her character. She doesn’t want to lead them on, which is nice of her. On the other hand, the boys are struggling not to make anymore moves (as per the agreement that they came to). The tension was palpable in this installment, and I won’t be surprised if something interesting happens in one of the next two books or so. In this installment, we finally see Mr. Blackbourne and other one of the guys trying to figure out if and how they can bring Sang […]

Review: Friends vs. Family by C.L. Stone

Check out my review of Introductions (The Ghost Bird Series #1) Check out my review of First Days (The Ghost Bird Series #2) In this installment, Friends vs. Family, we again are following Sang and the boys. In the previous novels, we saw some of what Sang goes through by the hand of her sick mother, but this installment was focused on Sang’s family life. I liked that it was primarily about the things that were going on in that aspect of her life because I had been curious about it after seeing bits and pieces of it in the previous books. Even though this installment focused more on Sang’s home life and not what the Academy boys were doing in the school, it definitely was not lacking in action. Actually, I liked this book the best thus far. There were some heart pounding moments and some scary ones. We also find out some plot-changing things about Sang and her family. I was absolutely glued to the book. I liked that the boys really stepped up to help Sang, even Mr. Blackbourne and Dr. Green. I liked that they were so quick to want to help her. They were especially selfless and overprotective and adorable in this installment. Also, the tension between them all is definitely building and I am excited to see where that leads. Also, I am interested […]

Review: First Days by C.L. Stone

Check out my review of Introductions (The Ghost Bird Series #1) Because there are so many books in this series so far, I don’t think that it is necessary to go into detail on the guys and Sang every review, as I don’t think that they will drastically change very much. That being said, I’m going to focus on the plot and stuff with this following reviews. First Days is about exactly what the title suggests: Sang and the boys’ first week at Ashley Waters high school. The boys are on some secret mission to help improve Ashley Waters, but it is obvious that they stand out (with their business casual school clothing) and that they are not wanted, especially by the Principal and Vice Principal. And because they have now taken Sang under their wing, she is being singled out as well. First Days definitely had a lot more action than Introductions. There was a lot of drama with the boys not fitting in and people trying to pick on them and fight them. There were definitely some heart pounding moments, especially during the end of the novel. Sang was really brave and tough in this installment, more so than I got the feeling that she was in book one. It was a pleasant surprise. Although she is extremely naive and sheltered, she is also caring and determined, especially […]

Review: Introductions by C.L. Stone

This is actually the second time that I am reading books one through four—the first time around, I didn’t get the chance to write up reviews for them, so I figured I’d reread them! I loved this book the second time around just as much as I loved it the first time around. This first book basically gives us an introduction to the main character, Sang, and the boys that make up the Academy team that attends her school. There wasn’t too much action in this novel—but we did get a firm understanding of what each of the boys was like, what Sang was like, and it definitely set the stage for book two as the boys start their secret mission at the high school, Ashley Waters. Sang is the female character of the book. Sang has a paranoid mother and a neglectful father, so she hasn’t had much of a normal life so far. One night, she sneaks out and runs into Kota. From that moment on, her life changes for the better. Sang is a really shy character. She hasn’t had much social interaction in her life so she tends to blend into the background with no problem. It was interesting to see her reactions to the boys. She’s a bit secretive because of her selfless nature. I think that she’s definitely going to be a character that […]
