    1. I sat down at my computer this morning and tried to think of something interesting to say about my reading experience of The Summoning It seems though, that all of my creative faculties have been sucked away since I spent eighty percent of this book imagining what the story COULD have been.The story is like the little engine that could It has the potential, it s chugging away, it s working hard Only as it turns out it s The Little Engine That Could Have Been Something interesting.The first part [...]


    2. I thought this book was pretty good I thought the blurb sounded good when it mentioned Chloe seeing ghosts I mean the first ghost she saw as a child would have freaked me clean out Later on Chloe is 15 and in high school She has a breakdown at school, or so they think, really she just saw a ghost that keeps melting his skin and looking all creepy But this book is not what it seems at all Poor Chloe finally gets sent to the Lyle House for special kids She has no idea No one would say what was wro [...]


    3. This book was nearly impossible to put down and I have no doubt that the menacing allure of the setting and plot hindered my ability to do so There were several compelling plot points going on in this chilling tome, but somehow they not only found a way to co exist, they actually enhanced one another The idea of necromancers alone was an eerily intriguing concept but to then confound it with a mental institution setting was sheer sinister brilliance As if it weren t creepy enough for the heroine [...]


    4. Reading this book made me clench my jaw so much it s still hurting several hours later Although the story is not a standalone, it really left me with a bone chilling feeling and I truly can t wait for the next book in the series.Chloe s a young girl struggling with her new found power, Lyle House and her housemates, the setting itself is filled with teenage hormones and jealousy It s filled with mysteries and no one seems to be what they appear,this is especially true for her housemates We join [...]


    5. I think I m one of the last people to read this I ve heard nothing but how good this novel is, and that I must read it ASAP When I received a copy of The Awakening, the next novel, I knew that I needed to read The Summoning, right away I m almost glad I waited to read it, so I could start The Awakening right away What an ending This book is everything I was hoping for and I ve never read Armstrong before, I really want to read her adult fantasy series, but I just haven t had a chance and when I [...]


    6. As seen on The Readventurer The Summoning is the first YA novel written by Kelley Armstrong It tells a story of Chloe, a 15 year old girl who suddenly finds herself capable of seeing ghosts Only, of course, nobody believes her and she is quickly sent to a boarding house for disturbed kids for psychological evaluation It turns out however, that the house and its inhabitants are not quite what they seem to be.While this book was definitely a page turner, I was a little disappointed in it I felt th [...]


    7. SURPRISINGLY GOOD So I bought this book last year at a summer book fair, I was not expecting to like it cus me and Kelley weren t friends after reading Bitten, which I felt was mediocre at best but this book came as a surprise First I was all like typical teenage stuff, girl complaining about life, afraid to ask boy to the dance typical stuff Until this girl starts to see things that no one else can and then it became all kinds of interesting.Chloe Saunders is having some weird dreams about base [...]


    8. The Summoning by Kelly Armstrong is a story about Chloe Saunders who is a fifteen year old necromancer just beginning to realize her powers She is not quite aware of its possibilities and at the onset of her revelation she suffers a meltdown in school and is placed in a house supposedly for mentally ill teens When she arrives at Lyle House, Chloe discovers that her fellow patients also have unusual powers and all is not what it seems to be.The story started off well enough, but really didn t pro [...]


    9. This book turned me into a shameless fiend for the Chloe and Derek relationship I adored their banter, and their romantic date in the basement with the dead bodies, and their other romantic encounter in the shower Note my views on what is romantic may be deeply weird On the first read, I found the book a little hard to get into, but on subesequent re reads that hasn t been a problem at all Realistic characters, interesting powers, cliffhanger ending I d do a lot to get the next book


    10. Actual Rating 3.5Why is it that every time a girl says a guy is bothering her, it s fluffed off with oh, he just likes you, as if that makes it okay I have to confess that I almost dnfed this book The main word here being Almost.At first it was too juvenile for me And the plot wasn t doing it for me Like, come on Rich girl who is the perfect daughter but the father doesn t care that much about her and her mother is dead Then she has her period decides to skip class and dye her hair to just not b [...]


    11. This book was SURPRISINGLY GOOD.At first I thought it was kinda weird but that made me read it to find out what was going on.This book has everything a book needs.Interesting, mind you, very interesting, characters, mystery, crazy people, and a writing style that says, If you put me down, so help me you will regret it Keep reading, you know you want too Did you hear that It sang the last part Sad part is, you keep reading for fear of waiting until the next time you might pick it up.The last thi [...]


    12. 3.5 4 Stars This was a We Love Lisa Kleypas Group Secret Santa pick from JessicaB Thanks, Jessica This is going to be a fairly short, and a bit uncertain, review Yes, I can do short ones without hottie photos _ This is my first Kelley Armstrong book Chloe Saunders is a late bloomer and puberty doesn t fully hit her until her 15th birthday, when weird things start happening to her She s seeing people that nobody else can When she suffers a breakdown in school, her guardian, Aunt Lauren, sends her [...]


    13. Oh, God Have mercy, this book is so amazing I can t even form words properly It is my second time when I try to read it, I first tried some years ago and I read just the first chapters and I considered them quite boring But now, I went further and I m so greatful that I did so At first, it seems like your typical girl sees ghost story, where the girl ends up in some house for people with problems Chloe is a character which I could totally relate to She was passionate about movies and she always [...]


    14. Honestly, I added these books to my tbr forever ago, assuming I would likely never read them But then I was in the library and the complete series was on the shelf right in front of me so I figured why not Low expectations, lots of potential And wow was I pleasantly surprised I blew through this, didn t want to put it down It was really entertaining and the characters were so very genuine Believable And I enjoyed being in the protagonists head.Definitely looking forward to reading the rest of th [...]


    15. This book had an interesting premise and fairly good plot, but I never really connected to any of the other characters and there was a large section in the book where nothing was happening It starts off really well with the introductions, context and setting, but after that the book fell a bit flat for me Just when the action started back up, the book ended on a cliff hanger And whilst I understand it was setting up for the next book, and explanations were needed to get to that stage, I wish the [...]



    16. I feel I should state three things before starting this review 1 I am older than the target audience for this book.2 I like Armstrong s adult novels that s why I picked this up.3 The first part of this review is going to include a rant Positive remarks follow.I wanted to like The Summoning than I did it is after all basically Teens of the Otherworld The first problem occurred early on in the novel where Chloe describes herself to the reader She is skinny, very skinny, so skinny that she doesn t [...]


    17. From when Chloe Saunders was just a little girl, she saw ghosts Of course then, she thought they were only nightmarish imaginary friends And her life seemed to become almost normal when they moved out of that haunted house and after her mom died But when Chloe hits puberty, she starts seeing the ghosts again Now she s forced to stay in Lyle House so she can learn to cope with her schizophrenia But the other kids at Lyle House have also been incorrectly diagnosed with mental problems There s a re [...]


    18. The Summoning, without any spoilers, was very intriguing and I couldn t put it down It did go a little slowly and I was kind of bummed that most of the book was placed in the home Chloe was placed in I really did like the characters and I like how they had flaws, unlike a lot of books where all the characters are entirely too gorgeous It was just an overall great book and I can t wait to continue on with the series.


    19. Puberty brings than periods and acne in the first book of Kelley Armstrong s new young adult Darkest Powers trilogy, The Summoning.At fifteen, Chloe Saunders still hasn t menstruated But the day it hits coincides with the ghost of a custodian haunting Chloe at school, until she finally breaks down Told she has schizophrenia, she s sent to live in a group home for other teens dealing with mental illness Or are they But Lyle House s patients are here by no happy accident, judging by the supernatu [...]


    20. I see dead people well, it worked in Sixth Sense and it definitely works here, mainly because there s so much here than that Chloe gets her first period and is harassed by a very gross looking ghost on the same day at school, of course She s happy about the first event, even tho she has to vandalize the bathroom dispenser to get a sanitary napkin, but the ghost her second of the day really freaks her out, and the school insists on two weeks of counseling in a group youth center before she can r [...]


    21. When I first read this book I was likeI remember when I first read this book, it was the night before I wrote my Life Science exam last year After waiting for the shipment of the book I ordered it online and then ignoring it for a whole week it finally caught up with me Of course it was like freaking Pandora s box near me I told myself I d just read a few chapters and leave it, so much for that happening I remember I couldn t put the freaking book down Now after re reading this book I still coul [...]


    22. 3.5 starsChloe Saunders life was as normal as she can get Her family keeps moving, so it s kind of hard not to get too special as being a new rich girl in school It was normal until her puberty kicks, and she gets to see a burning janitor.Is that a hallucination Or a real ghost Chloe didn t have time to consider, because her school and family send her right away to Lyle House, a group home for disturbed kids Counselor there somehow seems so keen to label her having schizophrenia All Chloe wants [...]


    23. We d run down the stairs together every morning all through kindergarten and half of first grade and then well, then there wasn t anyone to run down the stairs with any This first book always kills me a little bit inside Especially this quote up there Cleavage is great, she said Like an extra pocket Preach it Rae Preach it It s called being considerate Maybe you ve heard of it He batted my hand from the dials Darks, cold Or you ll end up with the dye bleeding A glance back at me See I m consider [...]


    24. I don t know why I wasn t expecting this book to be very good, but I really liked it It s Kelley Armstrong s first young adult novel, and I think she really nails it It was interesting enough that it can captivate an adult audience, but wasn t too mature that it would turn off some of the younger readers I enjoyed the story line, and I remembered that it takes place in the Otherworld, the same as her adult series about half way through the book and it all made sense then I wonder if we ll see an [...]


    25. 4,5 starsWhat i think, is that i should have read this book a long time agoat s how good i though this one was.This is a story about a very special group of teenagers For those of you who are familiar with the author s series Woman of the otherworld , i will just tell you this _Imagine all those characters, werewolfes, necromancers, witches, half demons, the whole groupw imagine them growing up having no idea what they were Imagine them growing up without someone who understands what they are de [...]


    26. 20 4 2017Is this series kind of dated as far as YA goes Yes Do I still thoroughly enjoy it Also yes Basically, Chloe is 15 years old and loves movies She goes to a fancy artsy high school She has awesome friends There s a cute boy interested in her Then she gets her period for the first time and she starts seeing dead people She freaks out obvs and ends up in a group home for troubled teens with a diagnosis of schizophrenia Except it turns out that all the kids in this group home aren t so much [...]


    27. Actual Rating 2.5 5 starsI didn t find anything special about this one What set it apart I cannot tell you because I don t know the answer to that I was unimpressed.The main characters are lacking I don t know why but I can t seem to root for any of them I wished I could say but I can t come up with anything right now They re okay, I guess.I was majorly bored Overall, I find this story not engaging enough because I was always getting distracted by a lot of things and while reading a book, that [...]



    28. I just love this series so much It s been so long since I ve read it that I had basically forgotten everything that happens The paranormal supernatural aspect to this is just so fun, and I feel this is an awesome book if you are looking to start reading the paranormal genre without it being so complicated I love all the different characters, and the ending of the book really kept me on my toes I feel the writing can be on the immature side of YA, but the storyline definitely makes up for it So [...]
