15 Day Book Blogger Challenge - Day 4

Make sure to link up to April's Day 4 post for the challenge!

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge Day 4: What's the last book you flung across the room?

The first and only book I have ever flung across the room was Lying Season by Karina Halle.

Amateur ghost-hunter Perry Palomino has battled ghosts, fought off skinwalkers and skirted the fine line between life and death. But can she survive bunking down in Seattle for a week with her partner (and man she secretly loves) Dex and his perfect girlfriend, Jennifer? And can she do so while being tormented by a malicious spirit from Dex's increasingly shady past? With love and life in the balance, Perry must discover the truth among the lies or risk losing everything she's ever cared about.

I first started to read the Experiment In Terror series last year when Karina Halle contacted me via twitter and asked me to read her series. I was reluctant at first because I've never read horror before. I am so glad that I started that series because it is now one of my most favorite series to date.
I got to read all of the books in order up until this one. Then I had to wait until the next in the series, On Demon Wings, came out.
So, I was engrossed in this entire series and this book was the turn for the series (in my opinion). I could not stop reading. 
I remember this like it was yesterday......
So here I am, reading Lying Season in bed while my husband is sleeping. I couldn't stop because...well...because Karina's books (especially this series) has that effect on a person. Once you's so hard to stop.'s about 1-2 in the morning because I kept telling myself "one more chapter....". Then.....I get to the end of the book. 
Now, I've known authors who give cliffhangers but I will tell you that the end of this book had me so upset.....I just chucked my Kindle and glared at it for about 10 minutes like it was the one who did me wrong.
Lying Season got me so wound up....there just aren't any words. I adore Karina and I think she is an extremely talented author. But man....that book.....that ending....completely messed me up for days.
I ranted and vented to my blogger friend Andrea @ The Bookish Babe because she understood my pain. 
Please don't get me wrong...I LOVED this book and I LOVE every single thing that Karina puts out. But this book was the only one (so far) that made me toss my Kindle. 

Love my Karina to bits though still. Haha!

  1. Haha! I actually finished this one sitting in my car, b/c I couldn't even wait to make it into the house. When I finished, I threw it down & started punching my steering wheel. Eric was freaking out! But once he read the series, he definitely understand my rage.

    Awesome book!

  2. Oh my yes, that ending was killer. Gosh I need to start reading these book again. I must make it a goal. It will be my fall goal to get caught up on them.. Don't hold me to that though because I suck. lol

  3. Hackaroo I absolutely loved your description LOL I'm gonna check out this series because it certainly invokes a lot of emotions :D
