Review: Graveminder by Melissa Marr

>>Tuesday, November 1, 2011

Title: Graveminder
Author: Melissa Marr
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 52/336
Genre: Paranormal
Publication Date: May 17th, 2011
Publisher: HarperCollins
Rating: No Grade

Summary:
From Goodreads: Melissa Mar is known to young adult readers as the author of the popular faery series Wicked Lovely. Her debut leap into adult fiction lands her in the small community of Claysville, a town where the dead walk free unless there their graves are not properly tended. Into this eerie maelstrom, Rebekkah Barrow descends as she returns to a place that she once believed she knew. Kelley Armstrong justly described Graveminder as "a deliciously creepy tale that is as skillfully wrought as it is spellbindingly imagined." A new genre author to watch.

Why did I read this book? This was chosen for Calico Reaction's October Challenge! Also, I've read Marr's Wicked Lovely series and enjoyed most of those books and wanted to read something else from her.

As you can see by the rating, I didn't finish this book. I didn't get very far but I strongly felt that I wasn't connecting to the characters, setting or circumstances at all. Rebekkah loses her grandmother in the first pages, and I didn't really feel the emotional impact this had on her. We didn't have enough time to really know the characters before their lives are turned upside-down, which causes there to be a lot of telling about past events and relationships. It just wasn't working for me. You can tell from the beginning that romance is going to play a major role in the plot and I just wasn't interested in that either.

  1. Sorry you didn't enjoy this one. For me, the up and down romance was less than enjoyable. However, I did really enjoy the paranormal aspects.
