    I may be biased here since this is my book! But I love horror and retellings, so I intertwined the two.

    and >

    But for some reason, I was just as hooked by those stories as I was about knights in shining armor. I think it's the way both genres engage the imagination that I find the most compelling.

    The premise felt a bit like an update to the 80's horror film classic,

    . with the sinister museum setting that really allowed for Robinson to stretch her creative wings and fly free.

    This is a fast-paced story, for the most part, although I will say that I found the first 30% of the story a bit disjointed in terms of tonal quality when placed against the rest of the story. Robinson does a great job of introducing Perrie and her friends and making the reader like them, but it felt lacking in the same sinister and dark tone that permeated the remainder of the story.

    In some ways, I wish this had been a bit longer so Robinson could have explored a bit more within the setting,

    Similarly, the fast pace at times felt like it became too reliant on telling the reader about things that were happening, rather than showing. Because of this, certain scenes felt a bit underwritten for the Upper Young Adult readers that it's recommended for.

    All in all, this was a really fun and creative read! I was doubly impressed with the fact that Robinson actually managed to surprise me a few times too with some events that I didn't see coming.

    I think with some fine-tuning and dedicated focus on really diving into and expanding her prose, future offerings from Robinson will definitely be ones to watch out for. I know she's on my to-watch list!

    I picked up

    as soon as it was released after reading the blurb and viewing the cover. I love retellings and the idea of intermixed horror really pulled me in. I’m amazed at how perfectly matched this cover is after reading the story.

    The story starts out with the main character Perrie and her cousin Maisie. They are really close and live next door to each other. Perrie is thinking about what she wants to do with her life while juggling the mystery that’s going on around town with people who are just disappearing without a trace. Everything is uncertain and one day while driving down Oak Street with Maisie and their friend August, something strange appears. A building they’ve never seen before. A building that is there one moment, and gone the next.

    Nobody knows what’s going on with the mysterious building, but as more people start to disappear, Perrie and August begin to search for answers. As they enter the Vault world, they are unable to leave and have to discover a way out. This is where the story takes off and becomes an adventure like no other. A nightmare that you just want to get out of. There were some really grotesque parts in the story when the horror came in. I liked the addition of the horror paired with the fairy tales and romance because it really makes the book unique.

    I personally liked the story and there were some surprises that I totally unexpected, including an interesting twist at the end. I love the way this author writes and this was a fast- paced read that kept me interested. I found only a few parts of the story a tad boring, but then it picks back up again and leaves you wanting answers. Anyone who enjoys retellings and horror will love this book.

    I can’t wait for the second book in the series! 4****

    Perrie Madeline has had her best friend and cousin, Maisie and their friend August by her side ever since her terrible break up with her ex boyfriend Neven. When out together they come across a new museum that seems to have come out of nowhere and when spotting a now hiring sign Maisie decides to apply and soon finds she's gotten the job.

    In the meantime Neven just can't seem to take no for an answer when it comes to their break up and when he shows up to talk yet again they get into another argument. However when Perrie gets a call from Neven's mother the next morning that he never came home she immediately thinks of all the news stories around their town of Deer Park, Texas and fears the worse may have happened.

    After Neven's disappearance Perrie is really worried about the missing people around town so when Maisie needs to report to her new job she warns her to be careful. The next morning however Maisie is found to not have come home that night and is now among the missing too. Perrie and August wonder if the new museum has something to do with the disappearances and decide to investigate on their own.

    Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault is a young adult story that mixes fantasy and horror along with a mix of retellings involved in the story which was certainly interesting. I found myself immediately engaged as the story started and introduced the characters and immediately loved the quirky Maisie but enjoyed all of the characters involved.

    As much as I was enjoying the story all throughout I was wondering if this would end up a five star read or not as I still had a few questions towards the end but was more than pleasantly surprised when those were answered. The ending in here also was just one of those wow moments that I would have loved to continue reading even though it had come to an end. Would definitely recommend checking this one out.

    I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

    This book begun in an entirely predictable fashion and, for the first quarter, I felt there was nothing inspired or unique about the plot. But, my gosh, did all that change!

    Perrie Madeline's home town is plagued with mysterious disappearances. After both her best friend and ex-boyfriend join the names of the missing, she vows to discover what secrets her town is hiding. During their search Perrie, along with new boy in town August, discover the museum of a mad creator and get sucked into a world of magic and mayhem when the doors close behind them. But will this adventure lead them any closer to discovering where the missing have gone? Or will they just becomes names added to the list of the lost and forgotten?

    This novel was one bizarre and peculiar adventure I did not see coming! The first quarter is set up to deceive the reader into believing this book to be something predictable but it soon becomes evident that it is far from true! From Jack the Ripper to the Legend of Sleepy Hollow to Snow White and the huntsman: this book encroaches on a plethora of famed fairy tales and legends and weaves them seamlessly into this horrific mystery, that sees both the reader and the characters sucked down the rabbit hole and into Wonderland.

    Oh, dear! I'm in love with a YA book yet again.

    It's always a pleasure to find a gem among all the unnecessary angst out there, in the genre.

    It's always a pleasure to find a gem among all the unnecessary angst out there, in the genre.

    One of the best things about this book is that Perrie is not a virgin. Yes, she dared have sex!

    Mind you, this is not erotica. It's safe to be read by a teenager. Just that you don't get the naive virgin who's silly and wanders all day if the guy likes her or not. She even dares leave her first lover, and I like that in Perrie. A relationship gone bad is not the end of the world, and we all can start all over again (and again, if necessary).

    Perrie is also a kick-arse lady without being the typical hero. She gets scared, and takes it from there. Also, the moment she gets face to face with Vale is utter perfection. I didn't see that coming. Kudos to Candace Robinson for that.

    That said,

    P.S. Telling you the real reason why I love this book would be a huge spoiler!

    When a new museum called Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault appears in town, people begin to disappear and even stranger the museum itself seems to disappear just to reappear again. Perrie Madeline's ex boyfriend mentions the museum the day before he disappears and then her cousin and best friend also doesn't come home the morning after her first shift working at the museum. Perrie and her friend August go to search for the museum on their own after it seems to disappear when they've brought the police

    When a new museum called Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault appears in town, people begin to disappear and even stranger the museum itself seems to disappear just to reappear again. Perrie Madeline's ex boyfriend mentions the museum the day before he disappears and then her cousin and best friend also doesn't come home the morning after her first shift working at the museum. Perrie and her friend August go to search for the museum on their own after it seems to disappear when they've brought the police with them.

    I actually really enjoyed the plot of the book and once the two got into the museum I got into the book. The reason I gave it three stars instead of four really doesn't have anything to do with the book as much as with my own preference because Perrie just for some reason got on my nerves. When I read the prologue I was pretty hyped to keep reading but then we get Perrie's POV and I just don't know why it didnt work for me. I really liked all the other characters especially Maisie. I think maybe I've gotten to old to remember what it feels like to be a teenager but Perrie felt so immature to me and I wish there was more showing and less telling at the beginning of the book. Again I think that's mostly due to the fact that I'm just in a different place in my life right now but if I had picked this book up a few years ago in high school I think I wouldn't have been bothered by it.

    That said I really loved the ending, it's so hard to have a good ending but wow like this was perfect. It was nice to pick up something different and I really loved the story line and I look forward to reading the next one.

    If anyone has kindle unlimited, you can read this book =) As of this review, not sure how long it will be on KU.

    I loved the very beginning of the book. I fell right in love with Perrie, Maisie and August as well. I thought they were awesome characters and I want Maisies as a friend. Lol

    Then . . . they are traveling down the road and see this random old museum off in the woods. It seems to be a museum that comes and goes. It's called, Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault.

    I'm not going to tell you what all happens after that or what happens when you enter the museum. I will say that it's a crazy train ride and just when you think it's over . . . it's not!

    I look forward to what book two has in store because, Questions People!
