100 Books in 2012: Book 70 "Beautiful Demons"

I grabbed the first book in Sarra Cannon's series, and I tore through it this summer.  What a delicious, dark read!

Harper has been kicked out of her second to last foster home.  If she can't make things work at Shadowford, a home for "troubled" girls, her social worker has promised her a quick trip to juvie.  Determined to finally make a home and finish a school year in the same place that she starts, Harper is on her best behavior.  But her past comes back to haunt her when the head cheerleader meets a grisly death.  The issue?  The girl was killed by something that very much resembles the power Harper has tried to keep secret.  It doesn't help that she may or may not have killed her adoptive father, and Harper is instantly a suspect.

What happens next is bizarre, but not unexpected for paranormal readers.  Harper may have found a place where her powers will be valued, or she may have fallen into something more dangerous than she could have imagined: only time will tell.

This is a great book to read during a storm, or in an old, spooky house.  Looking forward to more from this author!

What great paranormal books have I missed?  Catch me up, y'all!


  1. That sounds like fun! I love books with paranormal elements. And kudos to you for vowing to read 100 books this year. Amazing!

    1. Thanks, Caryn! Sometimes, it feels crazy, but most times, it's just exciting! Still, I can't believe it's already August! Better speed up...I know November and December will be too busy for books!
