Still on my Mind was created and is hosted by Haley at YA-Aholic.The purpose of this meme is to share a book you read months or even years ago that is still on my (your) mind every Thursday.
The Book Still on My Mind this week is…
Bard Academy Series (1-3) by Cara Lockwood
“At boarding school, no one can hear you scream.”
When Miranda, a slightly spoiled but spirited fifteen-year-old from Chicago, smashes up her father’s car and goes to town with her stepmother’s credit cards, she’s shipped off to Bard Academy, a boarding school where she’s supposed to learn to behave. Gothic and boring and strict, it’s everything you’d expect of a reform school. But all is not what it seems at Bard.
For starters, Miranda’s having horrific nightmares and the nearby woods are eerily impossible to navigate. The students’ lives also start to mirror the classics they’re reading tragic novels like Dracula, Wuthering Heights, and Jane Eyre. So Miranda begins to suspect that Bard is haunted by famous writers who took their own lives and she senses that not all of them are happy. Complicating things even more is the fact that Ryan Kent a cute, smart, funny basketball player who went to Miranda’s old high school landed himself in Bard, too. And the attention he’s showing Miranda is making some of the other girls white as ghosts. Something ghoulish is definitely brewing at Bard, and Miranda seems to be at the center of ominous events, but whether it’s typical high school b.s. or otherworldly danger remains to be seen.
Why It Is Still On My Mind
I read these a long time ago but they were such fun reads. Filled with ghosts of famous dead writers and their fictional characters made it something I had never read before. Mostly it is still on my mind because I felt like Moby Clique shouldn’t have been the last book. Periodically I would check to see if she was coming out with a new one but since the last one came out in 2008 I eventually gave up. While I was thinking about what book I would talk about this week I thought why not check again? Guess what I found?! haha with that excitement I am sure you’ve guessed but I will tell you anyway. The next book in the series A Tale Of Two Proms came out in December 2011. I can’t wait to read it and hope I enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed the rest of them.
