    Recently I read a writer s blog challenge about stakes The stakes in a novel must be high to encourage a reader to want to finish the novel Obviously, low stakes make for a boring novel Most of the stakes presented were in the following format so and so must do ______ OR ELSE ______ happens Well, let me tell you about the stakes in this novel Violet must find out who murdered Rowena or else Well, I m not really sure what will happen if she doesn t Obviously, a murderer walks free, but this doesn [...]

    There is this thick culture in my home country that places deep respect and almost blind obedience upon members of family especially one s parents.I lived next door to a girl and her younger brother Every day, she was made to do all the household chores, help her mother with the cooking and tend to their little shop One breath out of line and she was beaten by her father Her younger brother, on the other hand, spent his days running about God knows where from morning til night, never made to do [...]

    Already a huge fan of Alyxandra Harvey s Drake Chronicles, I was eager to see how she tackles something totally different I m happy to say that she doesn t disappoint.Haunting Violet was everything I was hoping for and .I loved this book Yes, it s a historical, which most of you know I don t particular like, but the way Harvey writes feels like I ve been swept off my feet and transported I love how vivid her setting is It s rich and lavish, right down to the fashion and the food, the elegant sur [...]

    Want to see from me Check out my Youtube channel youtube channel UCferFor as long as Violet can remember, her mother has been pretending to be a spiritual medium She enlisted the help of Violet at a very young age to help fake the seances she performs for her clients While attending a spiritual party of a wealthy lord, Violet begins to see ghosts The ghost of a young girl who was murdered on the property a year earlier appears and Violet decides that she is going to help discover who murdered h [...]

  5. Alysa H.says:

    Entertaining enough, but quite silly and unremittingly shallow Random pratfalls, for example, do not equal character depth And for a book that seems to revel in anachronistic language and behaviors on the part of its teenage females, the author sure is fond of the word missish a word which I find supremely sexist It s used disparagingly at least 4 times.

    3.5 stars It s Victorian England, and Spiritualism is all the rage Violet Willoughby s mother Celeste is a phony medium, using parlor tricks to scam her way up the social ladder Now, the Willoughbys have been invited to the palatial estate of Rosefield for a grand house party On this trip, Violet learns something shocking she is a medium A real one And the ghost of a girl from the next estate over, who drowned mysteriously the previous year, is haunting Violet and demanding she solve her murder.

    I ve had great luck with my Halloween picks this year This book was a great little find I haven t read this author s Drake Chronicles series yet, but I m now interested in checking it out after reading Haunting Violet.Normally I don t like to write summaries for book reviews, but since the actual summary doesn t really clue you in to what s going on, I m going to break it down for you.1 It s a historical I was surprised, but in a good way The setting was perfect for adding to the creepy vibe The [...]

  8. Angelcsays:

    4.5 StarsThis is a great YA historical with a spooky, supernatural element, not to mention a sweet romance I ve always been fascinated by the seances in the Victorian era, including all the tricks that mediums and con artists used to make people think they were communicating with ghosts The book really portrays Violet s mother as taking advantage of people at their worst We get to see all of the ways she tricked them in detail.Sometimes, I wanted Violet s mother to be just little of a sympathet [...]

  9. Donnasays:

    I find the Spiritualist movement absolutely fascinating simply because so many people were hoodwinked so rampantly, and publicly, for so many years and it took a decent amount of time for them to catch on This higher level of society, too hoity toity for their own good, bamboozled into thinking that women with wooden planks bound to their knees were their dead relatives come back to contact them So smart they were.What I loved most about HAUNTING VIOLET was that it didn t take itself too serious [...]

    Brilliant detail on spiritualism Fab protagonist and brilliant romance swoon.I am a huge fan of Alyxandra Harvey s vampire series The Drake Chronicles, so I was very excited to read anything else by her, so after reading the synopsis I have to say that Haunting Violet has tipped the scales sending me into super fan girl mode The book is superbly well written with dramatic atmospheric tension from the beginning.I do not want to go into too much detail about the plot as you really NEED to read it [...]

    Sixteen year old Violet Willoughby doesn t believe in the supernatural after being forced to assist her mother, a fradulent medium, since she was a little girl Violet resents her mother for forcing her to participate in tricking many grieving people out of their money Invited to the estate of Lord Jasper, a wealthy and prominent Spiritualist, Violet is angry that she must once again help perpetuate her mother s fraud At the same time, Violet s mother is trying to push her into marriage with a we [...]

    Review for Haunting Violet By Alyxandra Harvey Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey is one of my all time favorite books I loved it It had such descriptive language in it at some parts you thought you were actually in the story It on the edge of your seat wondering what would happen next Haunting Violet pleasantly surprised me by being so good because I usually do not read thrilling books like this but I would recommend this book to anyone The book Haunting Violet takes place in the 1800 s and th [...]

  13. Rubysays:

    This review was first posted on rubysreads.I m afraid I didn t enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed the Drake Chronicles It s a period piece, which tends to bring out the nitpicker in me I m one of those people who is irritated when an author gets titles wrong It s not that I consider myself a history buff quite the opposite, in fact but that s my point, really If an ignoramus like me knows that the Earl of Bladiblah generally has several lesser titles in addition to the one he s known by, so sh [...]

  14. Kristi-The Book Faerysays:

    The Faery s ViewHaunting Violet is such an apropos name for Alyxandra Harvey s break away from The Drake Chronicles It is full of ghosts, thrills, romance but it s also a murder mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end The most surprising aspect of Haunting Violet is that it is not only a paranormal romance but it is also, in my opinion, a very accurate historical paranormal romance set in the year of 1872.Violet, the illegitimate daughter of a charlatan Spiritualist, has known ver [...]

  15. Edensays:

    The cover Lilies and water are a bit clich , but both have to do with the book, so it can be forgiven The colours are also an iffy choice the shades of purple and white complement each other, but it ends up looking like a monotone cover What bothers me most is the girl is she Violet or Rowena I suppose it doesn t matter, but it seems like a weird positioning of the model for either of them.The book Haunting Violet reminded me very much of Distant Waves by Suzanne Weyn And let me tell you upfront [...]

  16. ♥Rachel♥says:

    Set in Victorian England, Haunting Violet is fun, suspense, mystery, and romance all wrapped into one amazing book Violet s mother is a Medium who fools people out of money by holding phony seances and readings Violet and her mother s assistant, Colin, must participate in the charades to earn a living.They are invited out to the country estate of Lord Jasper and suddenly Violet starts seeing ghosts Mostly the ghost of a girl who drowned the summer before at a neighboring estate Her death was rul [...]

  17. Charliesays:

    4.5 StarsBehind the Victorian curtain lurks a secret fascination with the after life The science and seance of mediums, performance, magic and paranormal are invited into the drawing rooms of elite society and pray on the grief stricken and bored The Gothic darkness paired with the proper etiquette of the era makes for a scandalised mixture that is both historically interesting as well as mesmerizing The macabre halls, hauntings and visual images are authentic and remind me of The Castle of Otra [...]

  18. Jessicasays:

    This is a fascinating look at the mania for Spiritualism and seances in Victorian England Violet s mother is a medium, and a total fraud All her life, Violet has assisted her mother in swindled the bereaved by faking ghostly messages and visitations But what if a real ghost wanted to make contact This book was wonderfully done, with plenty of detail about fashions, etiquette, and Spiritualism real and fake Violet was a great character, and so was everyone else, from her theatrical mother to her [...]

    This book is a fantastic paranormal tale with creative characters and a deep plot I loved every page of it.

  20. TheBookSmugglerssays:

    Originally reviewed thebooksmugglers 2011 06 bREVIEWFirst Impressions Ana I love ghost stories even if I am scared of them and I love novels set in Victorian times, so reading Haunting Violet was pretty much a given The potential was even greater considering that the heroine and narrator is a con artist who finds herself having to solve a very real murder with the added bonus of a sweet romance between childhood friends And you know I really enjoyed reading Haunting Violet It was a fun, quick re [...]

    Ever since I saw the beautiful cover and the intriguing synopsis for Alyxandra Harvey s Haunting Violet, I have been dying to read it, as if there is one thing I love its well written historical fiction, especially if it involves something supernatural as well Thankfully, this book perfectly fit the bill For Violet Willoughby, she is starting to become sick of the life she has been given She cannot stand watching her mother constantly trick people into giving their money over for her so called s [...]

    I think i m becoming a HUMONGOUS fan of Alyxandra Harvey In this tale she enchants us with yet another story based in the victorian society Violet and her mother are not very wealthy so they pretend to be mediums that can see the dead Along with them is Collin, a boy her mother had taken care of since he s mother had died This trio has conned their way into the elite society Until one day they receive an invitation to Lord Jasper s manner house Violet and her mother put on a well elaborated show [...]

  24. Laurasays:

    Since Harvey s Drake Chronicles is one of the better recent vampire series, I was interested to see how she did in another genre This is still within the paranormal continuum, but it s historical fiction and Spiritualism, not modern vampires And it s not bad.Violet s mother is a Spiritualist, holding seances and reuniting the living and the dead Of course it s all a hoax and the tricks she uses are described with some loathing by Violet but if you ve ever wondered, it s interesting to learn how [...]

  25. Kirsty (Amethyst Bookwyrm)says:

    This and my other reviews can be found at amethystbookwyrm Violet has never believed in ghosts and people who can see them because of helping and living with her charlatan spiritualist mother However, when Violet, her mother and Colin, an Irish orphan who helps out her mother and Violet has been getting strange feeling for him, visit Lord Jasper s country estate, Violet keeps seeing a drowned girl everywhere she goes Now with the help of Colin and her friend Elizabeth have to find out who this g [...]

    4 1 2 stars In Victorian London, Violet has been helping her mother stage fake seances for years She does not enjoy it, but she has no where to go so she does it, despite guilty feelings So there really is no bigger skeptic than Violet But on a trip to a country house for a set of seances at a country house, Violet starts feeling and seeing creepy things Once at the estate, it only gets worse as Violet starts seeing ghosts all around her and one in particular, the desperate ghost of a young girl [...]

  28. Josiesays:

    Interesting concept, but not particularly well executed A murder mystery needs to be tightly plotted, and this one wasn t The pace dragged, and the ghost of the murdered girl seemed remarkably coy in revealing who her murderer was Seriously, just TELL VIOLET WHO IT WAS Also and this is one of my biggest pet peeves even though this was set in the Victorian era, none of the characters acted or sounded like they were from that period Violet, the main character, wouldn t shut up about her corset my [...]

    Violet is playing along in her mothers world Her mum claims to be a medium, but she isn t As for Violet, she just goes along on these trips, but doesn t believe in any of this At first things are as normal as they can be for her But what can she do when the one thing she doesn t believe in, believes in her Well she ll need Colin s help Colin is a great guy and you can tell they are close After all, they did grow up together and know each other well But can Violet take care of this ghost and keep [...]
