More like a 3.5 that a 3, but I'm not willing to give it a 4 just right now. Caveat: this rating is because of the story, not the main characters. I found our beloved main protag Alexis extremely selfish and irriating - and this was before she started hobnobbing with the Sunshine Club. Plus her boyfriend is boring, and then he turns Cullenesque without reason and the in-text explanation is rather dull as well. I'd rather have a book with the little sister Kasey as the main protag, to be honest, or maybe just a book where everything isn't blamed on her and she isn't shamed for having spent time at a facility for people with mental illnesses (and the insinuation that Kasey asks to be troubled by these supernatural elements all the time is rather gross - does no one in that family ever consider that Kasey feels left out of her own life and is looking for some sort of acceptance anywhere she can find it?).

The story itself, however, is rather scary and thrilling and the entire concept of Aralt and the Sunshine Club really sends the chills down my spine. The last third of the book was an absolute roller-coaster ride of emotions for me. The conclusion was surprisingly satisfying in a dark way, even if it didn't end up Megan/Alexis (still crossing my fingers though, delusional shipper than I am). Will probably still read the third book that is set to come out next year, although my expectations are a little lower than usual. ( )

(This review can also be found on my blog: The (Mis)Adventures of a Twenty-Something Year Old Girl).

After reading the first book in this series, Bad Girls Don't Die, I knew I had to read From Bad to Cursed. I must admit that I was a bit wary of reading the next book as usually sequels aren't as good as the first book. However, all my worrying was in vain. This book turned out to be amazing just like the first.

Alexis and her little sister are back in this second book in the Bad Girls Don't Die series. Alexis is still worried about Kasey who has been in home for the mentally unstable. Kasey has come back home, and Alexis will do anything to keep Kasey safe. So when Kasey starts becoming more beautiful and starts making tons of new friends, including her sword enemy, Alexis gets suspicious. Alexis learns that Kasey is involved in a club called the Sunshine Club. However, the club isn't as nice as the name suggests. Alexis joins this club to find out what Kasey has gotten herself into this time. However, it soon becomes apparent that Alexis is in way over her head.

From Bad to Cursed is a good title for this book. In the story, things definitely go from bad to cursed so I can see why the author chose this title.

The cover of From Bad to Cursed looks incredibly creepy, not as much as the first book in the series, but still creepy. I'm not sure who's supposed to be on the cover. I thought it might be Kasey, but Alexis is more dominant in this story, so he could possible be Alexis. However, it still could be any member of the Sunshine Club. I do love the cover of this book, but just like Bad Girls Don't Die, I don't feel that it really gives much away about the story.

Again, Katie Alender is spot on with the world building! She makes you feel like you are experiencing everything that Alexis is. Alender makes you feel as if you're part of the Sunshine Club for this story. Everything just feels so realistic which is fantastic!

This is another book where I enjoyed the pacing very much. It was hard for me to put this book down to do anything else. Reluctantly, I did have to put this book down for some time, but as soon as I had free time, I was reading it again. This is such a fast paced story that you will not even notice the minutes flying by.

The wording in From Bad to Cursed is fantastic. It is easy to understand, and I also appreciate the fact that the teenagers speak like teenagers and not like the teens out of Dawson's Creek. I didn't notice any swear words, so fear not. The dialogue flows quite nicely.

All the characters in this book are all well developed with their each individual personalities. Alexis is a fantastic main character. I think everyone can relate to her in some way. I love Kasey!! I love how vulnerable she comes across as. She also comes across as being a bit more strong in this book. I love how she's grown. We also get to learn a bit more about Lydia in this story which I appreciated. However, Carter isn't mentioned too much in this story although he's still in it.

The whole plot in this book was well executed. It's a fantastic idea for a book. This book has me looking forward to the next book in the series, As Dead As It Gets. In fact, I ended up buying it today before I had even finished From Bad to Cursed. That's how much I love this whole series.

I'd recommend this book to everyone aged 13 . It is amazing!

From Bad to Cursed (Bad Girls Don't Die #2) by Katie Alender gets a 5 out of 5 from me. ( )

How could have this gotten better? I thought a new angle of another ghost wouldn't be quite the same as the first book but I was wrong. I liked how everything was very reversed. Alexis is the one who needs help now and I can't wait to read how it all ends. How is this girl so drawn to the supernatural? I wish that was explained. ( )

Goodreads Synopsis:
Alexis is the last girl you'd expect to sell her soul. She already has everything she needs--an adorable boyfriend, the perfect best friend, and a little sister who's finally recovering after being possessed by an evil spirit, then institutionalized. Alexis is thrilled when her sister joins a club; new friends are just what Kasey needs. It's strange, though, to see how fast the girls in The Sunshine Club go from dorky and antisocial to gorgeous and popular.

My Review:
When I started this book, I couldn't remember the first one very well, I read it a long time ago. So because I couldn't remember the characters and the world very well, it took me a while to get into this book. About half way through, however, I realized I couldn't put it down and really started to like it. It's such an interesting topic. At first I thought it was about ghosts, then I thought demons? Who knows really what it was but either way it was a good read. The characters are interesting and even though I couldn't remember what they looked like, I liked them. The cult aspect of the book was really cool too, you don't read too many books like that. I liked that the most out of the entire thing. I read it pretty quickly, at first just to get it over with but then it was because I wanted to know more, I couldn't wait to see what happened next. I also think the cover is pretty cool. It's not the most eye catching one out there, but it suits the story. You should check out this series if you haven't already!
Thanks for reading! Check out this review and more at my blog.

I could not put this book down! I practically devoured it! I am definitely going to go back and read the first book in the series. ( )
