Haunted - Book Review

Haunted (Dreaming Anastasia #2)
by Joy Preble

What is it about:
Anne Michaelson "is trying to forget everything that happened last year. But it's hard to do when her heart aches for Ethan and there's a wild-haired woman stalking her...

Ethan Kosinsky is embracing his newfound mortality. But something is drawing him back to the girl he left behind--back to Anne and back to the magic...

A mysterious stranger is hunting Anne wherever she goes. No one sees her but Anne. When she searches for the woman's identity, Anne exposes secrets about her own life-- things that will change her life forever. And when the gorgeous Ethan returns, her life gets a lot more complicated.

Anne thought her journey with the Romanov family had ended, but it was just the beginning...

What did I think of it:
I really liked the first book in this trilogy, but must say I was a bit reluctant to read the second book, because I feared it would ruin the ending of book one.

Luckily that wasn't the case.

This book did of course introduce a second love interest for Anne, to be able to create a sort of love triangle...

Overall this book didn't draw me in as much as the first book. It felt messier. Anne is flopping around, not knowing what to do for a large part of the book. When she does what she has to do, it feels more like luck, than that she actually figures out what's going on.

Still this book was pleasant enough to keep me reading. There also weren't any difficult fonts used, like in the first book, making it easier to read. There are some interesting developments and discoveries in this book, that make me curious what will happen in the next book. Having come this far, I think I'll see if I can get my trotters on the last book to find out how this trilogy will end.

Why should you read it:
It's a nice Paranormal YA read.
