Ivy is brought to the small island of Darkhaven after her mother's suicide. She discovers a curse on her family that spans decades and things start to awry as secrets are uncovered and relationships severed.
I'm a fan of girl on a small island type books. I mean, how can you not be? Things always seem to go all nutty. It makes me think that I need to visit some cursed and thinly populated island. Who knows what stories I could churn out. Iv ...more

This book was dark and twisty and amazing.
It took me a bit to get into it, in the beginning I honestly thought it was a book I would end up DNFing.
After the first five ish chapters it got addicting. I couldn't put it down. The plot was so intricate.
The plot twist blew my mind it was unexpected and even darker than I thought.
The characters in here were strong and unique. They seemed almost like a Romeo and Juliet pair. ...more
My previous experience with this author has only been with her Nocturne City series and I LOVED it. I did not, however, really care for this one. I found the entire thing to be mostly silly. The parts where she's actually dreaming, but it's supposed to be real, don't flow very well once she does wake up. There are also major plot holes all over the place. In the end, this one just didn't do it for me.
I love a good mystery so I just had to read this one! Caitlin Kittredge does a good job of keeping the reader in the story. It has great twists and a wonderful backdrop to the story. I wished by the end for a little more of something I just couldn't figure out what it was. Dreaming Darkly is a satisfying dark mystery with a little bit of horror mixed in.;)
