HatH2014 (Guest Post)10 Things I Love about Halloween:

 
I’m not sure what Halloween is like in other parts of the world, but here in rural Ohio, it’s amazing. The views are spectacular, falling leaves, brilliantly colored forests, country roads lined in hay bales and scarecrows spinning in corn fields. The crows are out. Pumpkins line fences. The whole things is gorgeous and then there are the ghosts. Ohio has oh, so many haunted asylums, prisons, homes and grave yards. Hey, Ohio’s also a great place to be a specter!

HatH2014 (Guest Post)Halloween! My favorite holiday. Maybe that’s why most of the stuff I write has some spooky element (not all of it, but a lot). Though maybe I like Halloween because I write spooky stuff? Which came first: the writing or the holiday?

Christina Lee is an author with a really strong voice, even if I haven’t loved all of her books. I have enjoyed most of them though and Promise Me This is another solid entry in the Between Breaths series. I like the banter between the group of friends and while her main characters have issues (because it wouldn’t really be New Adult if they didn’t apparently), it’s not dragged out in a super melodramatic fashion.
