Hi guys! Here we are for another round of Reading Rewind.
When it came to picking something for this month, it came to me right away. I’ve been a fan of Gretchen McNeil for a while now, so I wanted to go back to the first book of hers that I had read.
This month, I picked Possess!
1. When did you originally read the book and what did you rate it?
I read it in March of 2012 and rated it 4 stars.
2. Why did you love it?
Honestly, I didn’t remember much about it, other than the fact that it was about demons. Oh and there was a wicked scene in a doll shop. I knew I enjoyed it because it was Gretchen.
3. After the re-read did your rating/feelings about it change? Why or why not?
I rated the re-read 4 stars.
Bridget was snarky and had a fun inner monologue. At times, she did act a bit flighty, but then I remembered that she’s only 15 and has a lot of shit on her plate. There are a lot of secondary characters and I felt like we didn’t really get to know any of them. Not to mention the entire Peter situation seemed really glossed over.
The demon plot line was awesome and at times, maybe a little campy. I loved all of the twists and reveals and even though I guessed at a few things, there were still some surprises. And yeah, that doll scene was still really wicked. I fully enjoyed this re-read.
