    Having read In Between Seasons by Cassandra Giovanni a while back, I was eager to see what more she had in store with Walking in the Shadows. Let me tell you, this was not as good as IBS. It was better. Giovanni has emerged again, this time with a (dare I say it) more compelling romance, an intriguing plotline, and a story that is overall much more well—rounded. Abigail Martin is a girl who now spends her life as Vera MacIntyre under the witness protection programme. With her parents murdered [...]

    I honestly want to kick myself for waiting so long to read this book because it was so good. I literally starting reading and did not put it down until I was finished, it really was that good.I have to first start off by saying this book reminded me of first a television show, Pretty Little Liars, and then parts of a movie, Scream. At first I was iffy on the whole thing because I didn't know what I had gotten myself into. Was this a sort of fan fiction type thing or, to my happy relief, somethin [...]

    Walking in the Shadows was a very good story! I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a timeless tale of love and loss. The book is full of words of wisdom. From the beginning you are thrust into a passionate relationship between Tad and Vera (Abigail). But there is one major problem that threatens to keep them apart. Tad is Vera's English teacher. Throughout the story, you watch them both struggle to keep their feelings locked up and secret. It's not easy for them to do because the love the [...]

    This review can also be found on Living for the BooksActual rating: 3.5I don't think I've ever read about book about a student teacher relationship so as far as that goes I don't have much experience reading about them. I actually really enjoyed reading about Vera and Tad's relationship even though I thought it was a little too much for me at times. I guess that was because you didn't get to see them fall in love, you just saw them already in love.So going into this book I had expected more myst [...]

    I had prepared myself for a paranormal book since the summary mentioned “vampire” but what I read was so much more. Vera is a senior and has moved to a new town after the murder of her parents. From the jump I noticed Vera is not your “damsel in distress” type; this girl is strong, independent and intelligent. Her love interest, Mr. Knightley (Tad) is her English Lit. teacher, yes sounds a little creepy, right? Wasn’t at all since Vera is 18 a senior and Tad is just a couple years olde [...]

    Ok, I was a bit apprehensive on whether I was going to like this book or not. During the first pages, I thought it was going SO well. I enjoyed how Vera and Tad was presented to us. How it started with this problematic relationship between them and we had no idea of why. Then, the story was explained, in a very good way in my opinion. Tad is a British Lit Teacher at the school Vera goes to. We find out he did not know she went there and she was a bit scared of having to see him as a teacher. The [...]

    This was a great book! This was a book about a girl living in fear and trying to overcome the murder of her parents. She meets a guy and falls in love, but the relationship gets a little doomed when she finds out he is her new teacher. Nothing can stop the feelings they have for one another so while they are struggling to hide their relationship, the killer is right under their noses causing all sorts of ruckous again. This story had a little of every type of emotion in it. You could feel everyt [...]

    What I think I like best about Giovanni's books, is that she gets the reader right into the story. From page one, you are immersed into the problem and the character's emotions as if you had been along for the ride the entire time. The song "Don't Stand so Close to Me" echoed throughout my mind as I read this book; this forbidden but believable love story.The plot moves the reader from feeling emotionally invloved in the book, to intense curiosity as to what exactly has happened between Vera, he [...]

    Wow, I have so many good things to say about this book!READ THIS BOOK IF:1. You like young adult romance2. You aren't in high school anymore (continue reading for my explanation of this one)3. You love a good mystery (honestly, it's more mystery than romance, but still a love story nonetheless)This book starts out a little differently than most - rather than telling you how two people meet and fall in love (and having the story be about their new romance), this book throws you in. Literally dump [...]

    Firstly I'd like to thank Cassandra Giovanni for giving me this book in exchange for an honest review.I really enjoyed reading this book however i would have like the epilogue to have shown a little more into the future and let me know a few unanswered questions (view spoiler)[ such as did everything get better with her hands? does she decide to be a englishnteacher? does jaz and brad stay together?(hide spoiler)] but this book is by far one of the better ones thatblet us know most of the end re [...]

    First and foremost, the summary for this story rocks. It completely captured me and lured me in, like a siren ensnaring her prey… Just listen:Seconds seem like a lifetime when the life you lived is slowly drained out of you by those who care not what you felt, hoped, or dreamed. When the darkness comes it is all-consuming; there is no light and there is no pain. It is the never-ending loss of hope that now consumes me as I die in his arms.This is Abigail Martin’s nightmare. After her parents [...]

    Originally on babblingofabookaholicHaving read Cassandra's debut novel In Between Seasons I must point out I feel like this book showed a different style of writing and she can definitely pull of both! In her debut novel she told the story of Kate and Hunter through dialogue. In Walking she tells the story in a completely different way and after reading her first novel I had felt she could only get better as an author and I was completely right! I absolutely loved Walking! This book is not only [...]

    A few months back, Ms. Giovanni kindly allowed me to interview her with ten questions. Why do I mention this? Because during that interview I learned quite a few interesting facts about this particular author. One of those facts is that Ms. Giovanni likes to dabble in photography. Why mention this? Because you get three guesses as to where this lovely book cover came from. Let me warn you that the first two guesses don't count. As for the book itself. I'm not normally one that likes books that f [...]

    I was half way through with this book in the morning, then I ate lunch, finished the book, went shopping for some school supplies, and now I’m here writing this review. Honestly I was not expecting to like this book, but it was amazing, and the characters almost felt real at times.Summary:Vera- also known as Abigail Martin- parents have died, with evidence it may have been vampires. But vampires aren’t real, so this could be a cult? She’s nervous that the killer is coming for her next, and [...]

    I couldn't help it, I am posting my review on GR earlier than on my blog.Don't let the cemetery angel freak you out of reading this great book as it almost did to me.Let me tell you how FANTASTIC this book was!I am beyond glad it won in my Group of the Month poll. There is suspense, there is mystery and most of all there is romance. The kind of romance that makes you sigh with a little of envy that it's not happening to you and a little bit of awe because you can't believe how strong their love [...]

    First of all I'd like to commend the author on such a fresh take on the whole Vampire YA genre! I received the book from the author for an honest review. Here goes!Very very unique writing style. It's almost as if I was witnessing the conversations and understanding all that was going on!! This is only the second book where I found myself anticipating the conversations with the curiosity of a two year old. :)As the story unfolds at its constant, comfortable pace (Read: What's-gonna-happen-next?!

    Walking in the Shadows is a powerful book. It is about many different things. At first you could think of it primarily as a type of forbidden love story. But on the other hand you can think of it primarily as an epic and unique murder mystery thriller. And finally you can think of it as a very moving and sad yet beautiful coming of age story. I enjoyed Walking in the Shadows a lot. Vera is such a lovely girl. I felt such pain for what she had to go through. Because of events in her past, she has [...]

    'Walking in the Shadows' is ultimately a beautiful but difficult love story, which Cassandra Giovanni handles with sensitivity and tact. Underlying the love story is the fact that that Vera's parents have been killed under suspicious circumstances, with apparent 'bite' marks to the neck, and drained of blood. Cassandra Giovanni makes an interesting statement upon social media throughout her novel through the suggestion that the vampire murders are connected to the book series and film release of [...]

    WALKING IN THE SHADOWS is about many different things. It could be thought of as a forbidden love story or as an epic and unique murder mystery thriller. But yet you can also think of it as a very moving, sad and beautiful coming of age story. I thought of it as all of these venues.Vera MacIntyre, whose real name is Abigail Martin, is a lovely girl even though she went through some very painful things. The events in her past kept her walled off from everyone. But yet Vera is very stubborn. She r [...]

    Note: I received this book directly from the author for an honest review.I found this book amazing. I started it fairly late at night just to get a feel for, planning to finish it the following day. I ended up staying up until two am. I only went to bed because I happened to have a final the next day.The characters were great. I was easily able to relate to Vera/Abbi. I found the teacher/student relationship kinda "Pretty Little Liars," but Giovannni did better with that scenario than Shephard-- [...]

    Its another great book from Cassandra.Definitely a page turner.The fictional Crimson Reign in Cassandra's world is like the Twilight Series in out world.Its funny to see the majority of the female species in "Walking In The Shadows" are crazy for Crimson Reign, just like our crazy die-hard Twilight fans!The way she describes Tad Knightley makes me soft, as in *long sigh*I admire the way Vera/ Abigail carry on with her life even though it sucks like hell cause her parents were murdered by sick ps [...]
