Red is for Remembrance (Blue is for Nightmares #4)
Shattered by her boyfriend's tragic death, Stacey is struggling in her first year of college, hoping that somehow, somewhere, Jacob is still alive. Now her nightmares are back, haunted by ghosts and misery. Casting healing spells brings Stacey closer to Porsha--a troubled girl who's also dreaming of death--and to a strange boy whose life is in dang...more
Overall, I just felt it was a stronger story and that I got to know Stacey so much better than any of the other books. She went from a completely one dimensional character I hardly cared about to one I was routing for and loved. I just couldn't put this book down!
I do think the ending was a little...more
I can connect Portia to Callie from Cut. They both have issues they don’t want to deal with, so instead of trying to get help they cut t...more
About 130 pages in, I made a revelation that made me jump for joy... literally! I was squealing like a little school girl. That Laurie, she's a tricky one!
I loved it. Every page, every second, every minute. I stayed up to the wee hours of the morning to finish reading it. And I cried through the majority of the book! I'm super sad the series is nearly over (I will be reading the graphic novel which is the 5th book). I'm really attached to these characters and I ab...more
I noticed that the cover showed a red candle and the background was black. It seemed mysterious so I read the back to know what it was about. I started reading and didn't like it at first. I later found out that its a part of a series called Blue is for Nightmares. I then had to start from the beginning of the first book and loved it. This is basically about Stacey after a tragic accident involving her boyfriend and now s...more
The first two books were just alright for me. I enjoyed them, but there just wasn't that "I can't wait to continue reading" feeling I get when I'm reading a truly entrancing story. The third book was my favorite and then the last book was really good, but a little obvious, I think.
I think my problem with the first two books was that the characters and writing itself seemed very juvenile at times. I don't know exactly why I felt that way, but the characters w...more
In the third book, Stacey loses her love, Jacob, when he falls overboard. Her mother and friends try to help her cope with Jacob's loss, but as his body is never found she can't let go of the hope that he's still alive somewhere. In "Red Is For Remembrance," she tries her hardest to perform spel...more
This book is better than the previous installment in the series, but not by much.
PJ and Amber are caricatures of "regular teen", so much so that they appear immature at times, and tell really horrible jokes. But occasionally their humor is amusing and cute.
Stacey, Drea, and Chad have basically no defining characteristics, and simply move the plot along... with the exception of Chad shaming Stacey for having a crush on someone new after her old boyfriend's untimely death. That...more
They think Stacy is going CRAZY.
They think that Porsha is CRAZY.
That commune is utterly CRAZY.
Only one of them is true. So if Stacy doesn't come to her senses and help Porsha with her nightmares, they won't be able to save that boy in the camp Porsha dreams about. And time is not something they really have a lot of.
I personally didn't think Shell would be who he ended up to really be. I knew that the boy Porsha was dreaming about wasn't Shell. And I di...more
During my time reading this book I made a text-to-text connection. There was...more
Ever since Stacey's boyfriend, Jacob, died, everything has changed for her. Life just isn't the same without him. She still believes he's alive here somewhere, but everyone else know's he's long gone. Now attending school at Beacon University (on a scholarship she doesn't deserve), things have gotten even worse-she's having nightmares again. Stacey is no stranger to nightmares, she's been having them for years. These nightmares are different, though; they involve a girl whose also been having n...more
Just after Jacob's death, Stacey strives to bring her life back to normal. She's got a scholarship in Beacon University and her friends are supporting her to move on about Jacob's death. But nightmares are starting to haunt her again...more
Que dire ? Je crois que je me suis lassée de cette série. Je la trouve classique et tristement banale. Un peu pimentée de suspense, avec un zest de crimes et une mêlée de psychopathes pour relever la sauce, la recette ne laissera pourtant pas un goût inoubliable.
Six mois ont passé depuis la disparition de Jacob. Lucy est totalement à l'ouest. Contre toute attente, elle a obtenu une bourse d'études pour une prestigieuse université. Elle comprendra pourquoi lo...more
The whole story line with Shell seemed pointless to me. I don't know if the author thought she was writing this huge mystery, or if she just thoug...more
