Happy Wednesday everybody!
This Wednesday I’m reading The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud!
This is the first book in a series about a group of kids living in a world where ghosts are frequent and common, but only people under the age of twenty can see them, so there are ghost hunting businesses employed mainly by children. What makes Lockwood’s business different is that he and his partners, Lucy and George, don’t have any higher up adult supervision (which all the more professional companies have). Right now it feels like there is too much going on in the book, but I have a feeling it’s because this is the first book in a series and the starting point isn’t the start of either the ghost problem or when Lucy first joins Lockwood’s team. I do love all of the characters though and especially love each of their paranormal specialties and the descriptions of how they work! I’m excited to see how everything works out and for what else is in store for this little group.
What are you guys reading? Let me know in the comments!
