Book Review: From Bad to Cursed by Katie Alender



Description from Goodreads:
Alexis is the last girl you'd expect to sell her soul for beauty and popularity. After all, she already has everything she needs--an adorable boyfriend, the perfect best friend, and a family that finally seems to be healing after her sister Kasey's unfortunate possession by an evil spirit.
But then Kasey tells Alexis about the mysterious new club she has joined, and the oath she has taken to someone named Aralt. Worried that Kasey's gotten in over her head again, Alexis and her best friend Megan decide to investigate by joining the Sunshine Club, too. At first, their connection with Aralt seems harmless. Alexis tries a new -- normal-- look, and finds herself reveling in her elegance and success.
Still, despite the Sunshine Club's outward perfection, the group is crumbling from within, and soon Alexis finds herself battling her own personal demons. She can hardly even remember why she joined in the first place. Surely it wasn't to destroy Aralt...why would she hurt someone who has given her so much, and asked for so little in return?

My Thoughts:
After reading the first book in this series, Bad Girls Don't Die, I knew I would have to continue on, once this one was released. This series is mainly about 2 sisters, who have issues with being possessed. These are definitely books that I would've read in my teenage years. I love the whole ghost/ possession theme. 

Alexis is a great main character and I loved the idea of the sunshine club and Aralt and how certain characters and situations were all tied in together at the end. The author did a really great job with this one. Some series get worse as more books are released, but this was definitely better than the first one. I will be waiting for the next book As Dead As It Gets, which should be released in May 2012. 

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars

  1. It's funny that you liked this book better than the first one. I felt exactly the opposite. I really, really liked the first one, but I thought the second was too generic. I'm interested to see what happens with the last book.

    Thanks for the review!

  2. The last one will definitely be interesting and I am curious to see if it actually ends up to be good or not! This is such a cute little series. Thanks for stopping by!
