Halloween Picks! Vlog Review of Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce

We love Halloween! So, for the month of October, we're hoping to bring you some awesome scary/creepy books to get you in the mood for Trick-or-Treating! This is one of our all-time-favorite books! If you haven't read it, now's the perfect time!

Amy and I both read Sisters Red and decided to do a Vlog about it!  We just couldn't stop talking!  SO, we've made a super long video where we talk about it and all the things we liked and didn't like and what-not, then I made a shorter cropped version for those who don't want to watch us for 10 min.  :)  (Hint:  If you want to watch the long one, don't watch the short one, because it's the same stuff just less of it!)

Wow! Look at that cover!  In a sea of black-covered YA books, Sisters Read certainly stands out!

Scarlett March lives to hunt the Fenris--the werewolves that took her eye when she was defending her sister Rosie from a brutal attack. Armed with a razor-sharp hatchet and blood-red cloak, Scarlett is an expert at luring and slaying the wolves. She's determined to protect other young girls from a grisly death, and her raging heart will not rest until every single wolf is dead.

Rosie March once felt her bond with her sister was unbreakable. Owing Scarlett her life, Rosie hunts ferociously alongside her. But even as more girls' bodies pile up in the city and the Fenris seem to be gaining power, Rosie dreams of a life beyond the wolves. She finds herself drawn to Silas, a young woodsman who is deadly with an ax and Scarlett's only friend--but does loving him mean betraying her sister and all that they've worked for?
