Book Review: Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender



Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender







When Alexis's little sister Kasey becomes obsessed with an antique doll, Alexis thinks nothing of it. Kasey is a weird kid. Period. Alexis is considered weird, too, by the kids in her high school, by her parents, even by her own Goth friends. Things get weirder, though, when the old house they live in starts changing. Doors open and close by themselves; water boils on the unlit stove; and an unplugged air conditioner turns the house cold enough to see their breath in. Kasey is changing, too. Her blue eyes go green and she speaks in old-fashioned language, then forgets chunks of time.
Most disturbing of all is the dangerous new chip on Kasey's shoulder. The formerly gentle, doll-loving child is gone, and the new Kasey is angry. Alexis is the only one who can stop her sister -- but what if that green-eyed girl isn't even Kasey anymore?


My Review:

There once lived a little girl,a beautiful little girl who wore fancy dresses, and had the most exotic green eyes that one may have ever seen.She came from the richest family and lived in the biggest house that was ever built in her small county. She lived in the country away from the townspeople but everyone loved the little blonde girl that they all came by to play with her everyday.

When she turned ten she received the most beautiful doll ever made for her birthday.She took it everywhere with her and even talked to the doll like it was human. Jealousy stirred amongst her friends because they never had anything as nice.

Jealousy is never a good thing. It made the other children do awful things to the little girl with the vivid green eyes.

Present day-15 year old Alexis Warren with her pink hair and outcast status has a sister named Kasey who is overly obsessed with creepy looking dolls.

Weird things start to happen in their home. Things that just can't be explained. And when Kasey starts to act even more strange then her usual weird self Alexis starts to think her sister is going mental.

Now enters Megan Wiley the nemesis to Alexis. She is popular,a cheerleader and undeniably beautiful who also gets to experience Alexis Warren's sisters behavior firsthand. Megan's theory is altogether different and it's not so much a theory if Megan also has a gift to sense "things".Kasey being crazy is the least of Alexis' problems.

I don't read to much horror but I did enjoy reading Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender.It was a mystery and horror combined in one and it kept me on the edge the whole time.There is just something about creepy antique doll ghost stories that gets under my skin and Bad Girls Don't Die had no problems creeping me out. I highly recommend this book, it was a fast read thanks to the interesting plot.

I'm also glad to say that there is a second book coming out called "From Bad to Cursed" in June 2011.

  3. Weekend Reviewer Ahoy!

    This one sounds incredible, thanks! I enjoyed your review, it contained everything I needed to know.

    If more horror stories contained mystery elements, would that entice you to read more horror?

  4. @Scribal Goddess ..thanks for stopping by , I have to say I am very picky when it comes to the horror genre in books and movies but yes if more horror books contained mystery elements I would pick it up more often, I love being kept on the edge when reading. I'm actually waiting to get my hands On Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake it sounds like something right up my alley.
