Daring You To Read.....The Summoning (Darkest Powers #1)

Daring You To Read is a brand new meme by Tynga's Reviews. Is where you choose a book you’ve read, loved and would dare your readers to read! The book you choose must be an older release (at least 6 months ago), because let’s be honest, we’re all quite aware of the latest releases.  

The Summoning (Darkest Powers #1) by Kelley Armstrong
Publication Date: July 1st 2008
Genre: YA Paranormal

After years of frequent moves following her mother’s death, Chloe Saunders’s life is finally settling down. She is attending art school, pursuing her dreams of becoming a director, making friends, meeting boys. Her biggest concern is that she’s not developing as fast as her friends are. But when puberty does hit, it brings more than hormone surges. Chloe starts seeing ghosts–everywhere, demanding her attention. After she suffers a breakdown, her devoted aunt Lauren gets her into a highly recommended group home.

At first, Lyle House seems a pretty okay place, except for Chloe’s small problem of fearing she might be facing a lifetime of mental illness. But as she gradually gets to know the other kids at the home–charming Simon and his ominous, unsmiling brother Derek, obnoxious Tori, and Rae, who has a “thing” for fire–Chloe begins to realize that there is something that binds them all together, and it isn’t your usual “problem kid” behaviour. And together they discover that Lyle House is not your usual group home either…

I picked this one up in 2009, along with the second one, at target and I fell.....I fell hard. Not only was this book good but it inspired me. Inspired me to truly start writing and because of this book I have already written a whole novel and half of a second one. This story, series, was amazing and had great writing skills. It made me love reading more and got me even more hooked on the Paranormal genre.

Though, lately, it (paranormal genre) seems to have gone down a little with style....everything trying to be like one other or they seem to be just alike.....I don't know, maybe just me.

But this one.....this one is a must read. I recommend this one a lot.... :)
