Born at Midnight
Welcome to Shadow Falls camp, nestled deep in the woods of a town called Fallen…
One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren't just "troubled." Here at Sh...more
More lists with this book...
Oh yeah, this is what I call an entertaining book.
I don’t have a deep quote to share with you all, for the simple reason that this is a light, colourful and diverting story. It didn’t blow my mind, didn’t take my breath away or sweep me off my feet, but it sure as hell took away my boredom for a good nine hours. And this is what I wanted and needed, so I’m fully(-ish) satisfied.
Kylie can see ghosts. They follow her everywhere and she doesn’t know how to control this ‘‘gift’’ she has. After her p ...more
First of, isn't the cover super super pretty?? I love that cover and after reading the synopsis I knew I had to read this book and I was happy enough to get my hand on a ARC, woohoo!
Loved this book! It's about Kylie trying to figure out who she really is, specially in terms of supernatural species. Kylie is stuck in between the divorce of her parents and this hits her really hard. After being caught at a Party where some kids where doing drugs, he ...more
This used to have a review, but then a troll came along, and I realized that this review would probably attract many more, so I just took it down.
The main character was immature, insensitive, and shallow. She compared learning that she was in some way supernatural, with her possibly having a brain tumor. All she could talk about was how terrible it would be to have to buy some wigs and that she hoped she had cancer over being "not human". Are you kidding me?
The "romance" was a joke and poorly written. I honestly hated it. Most of the book she thinks of her ex who was a real sleazeball. Then she ...more
Is it a.... fairy?
Is it a... vampire?
Is it a.... werewolf?
Is it a... nnoying?
On page 205 of "Born at Midnight," the (boring, flat, typical) main character, Kylie, is in the same position she was in on page 50. I mean exact same position. She's at a summer camp for supernatural creatures. Her shrink recommended it to her mom because the shrink is half fairy and can recognize the signs of supernatural gifts.
SO. What is Kylie, you m ...more
The main character is 16-year old Kylie,her parents are getting a divorce and she keeps seeing this weird figure on her front lawn thats invisible to everyone else but her.To get away from it all she goes to a party that ends badly when the police breaks up the party, with he ...more
This book is like one massive parody of all-things paranormal. I might like it if I was fourteen. The plot is very similar to Hex Hall, at least up until the point where I decided that this just doesn't worth my time.
Annoying, self-conscious, whiny heroine who thinks she's funny.
Her life had toilet-bound stamped all over it.
Suddenly, Kylie started feeling people turn and look at her. Or were they looking at all of them?
Stupid, spineless best friend ...more

I'm going to have to write a review tomorrow. I'm really tired.
September 17, 2015
Okay. Now I'm ready to write this review.
I had been seeing this book around in Barnes and Noble as well as some people's shelfs. I had read a little about it and I was determined to read the series. I have to say though, that I was a little disappointed.
So I know that we shouldn't judge a book by its cover but, come on. We all do it even if we don't mean to. This cover is really coo ...more
..a girl leading a normal life. (Well, yeah, if you exclude all the recent mishaps..)
Who would've thought she was anything but normal.
And the blondie was like..
Evolution of unknown powers, which she hadn't even been familiar with. Until now. Two boys vying for her attention. Oh, wait. Make that three. Yeah, that's right. Three guys hungry for her attention..
Two friends, and roommates, totally different species, grabbing any chance to degrade and curse each other.
Beside him - or she should say plastered against him - sashayed his new slutty girlfriend. (page 10)...more
"Trey and his screw toy are here" (page 10)
Kylie stared at her best friend and realized how different they'd become these last six months. It wasn't just Sara's
LOVED rereading this book. I was just in the mood to reread it again and so I'm going to continue rereading the entire series #SeriesSummer hear I come :)

This book made me laugh and I just fell in love with the story!!! I love fantasy and this was such a fun book. Can't wait to read the second book!!
Add to all that she has three different hot guys wanting her. She is torn between the old boyfriend who cheated on her because s ...more
And boy, how I loved this book from the first chapter!
Kylie Galen is a girl with several problems: parents, whom are getting a divorce, a dead grandmother and a stalker an ...more
Kylie’s life is breaking down around her: her parents consider divorce, her boyfriend dumps her and immediately starts going out with another girl, and a stalker has been introduced into her life. It isn’t until Kylie gets caught at a party -- with under-aged drinking and drugs galore -- that her life gets turned completely upside down. Her Ice Queen mom decides to send her to Shadow Falls Camp, a psychologist-recommended institution for t ...more
Derek, Lucas, and Perry... them my favs ^-^
Here are some quotes (yes, I perfer them in my reviw, dont judge (Ps. These may or may not be spoilers))...
"'They call us boneheads,' the girl said...
'Ha,' said the blond boy. 'They also call us boners.'
A few laughs echoed from the toher seats. 'Why is that funny?' the girl wearing all black asked in a tone so deadly serious that Kylie shivered.
Well, for once, I'm a little clueless about my feelings. Yes this book was fun, but not too much really happened. I mainly felt as though the series was being set up, which was still entertaining. The characters each stood out, and I definitely know them well. The love triangle was firmly created, and I found myself rooting for one guy more than the other. And by the end of the book, I had a good grasp on all of the paranormal creatures and the world that they lived in. So while ...more
The characters in this book were dull and the writing was weird. A few quotes:
Kylie flinched emotionally, but physically didn’t blink. (location 150)
Kylie started to follow but her gaze slapped against Soldier Dude. (location 212)
Tears threatened to crawl up her throat. (location 229)
Her mom’s green eyes tightened. (location 247)
Chills tiptoed up her spine. (location 607)
Her gaze slapped right into Kylie. (location 622)
A watery film coated her vision. (locations 760-761)
I co ...more

1. Vampires, werewolves and faeries - Check
2. Mary Sue heroine with unique powers - Check
3. Dickhead heroes - Check
4. Shitty love triangle - Check
Yup. Didn't find much originality, really. And the characters were just hard to like. I'd give this book 2 stars, though, because it was bad, but not totally a p ...more
