📣Thank you to NetGalley, Harper Collins, and J.A. White for an Advanced Readers Copy of this book!
🙋♀️This review is based on my own opinions.
I was overjoyed when I found out that Alex and Yasmin were back together in this sequel to Nightbooks! I worked with J.A. White during our Meet the Author Club in my elementary library for students in grades 3 and 4. He was amazing! He donated so much of his time for students to get their questions answered. Nightbooks is such an entertaining and different kind of story due to the alternating chapters between the story of Nightbooks and the stories that Alex is writing to survive. This kind of format of a chapter books makes it so easy to sell it to my reluctant readers in middle grades.
This sequel did not disappoint. We are back with Yasmin and Alex and a surprise visitor puts them right back into their scary world they were in in the first book. Alex’s stories are so creative and entertaining that I read this book in a flash. There are many twists that were surprising to me that kept me excited as I was reading. I won’t give spoilers but this book is a five star for me! You have to read Nightbooks first of course but instead of waiting for the sequel like I did you have the lucky chance to read both together!
