Magic! Gargoyles! A spell library! Wraiths! Time travel! A 1,000 page compendium of unbelievables that I need to read urgently! Breakfast! This is such a fun series!

Kat has already faced spells, curses and unbelievables, and risked her life by travelling to the past to retrieve invaluable items. Now she needs to attempt to find the Mallory amulet, which has been missing for over two centuries. This will likely be more dangerous than any of her previous missions to the past and it doesn’t help th
As if her senior year wasn’t stressful enough, Kat has had to keep secrets and distance herself from her best friend, even if only to keep her safe. But has that become a false sense of security? Is it possible that Kat will have to bring those she loves most to the safety of Dumbarton? Will she have to share her secrets or has she not kept them buried as deeply as she thought?

Struggling to learn all she can to prepare her for her destiny, Kat finds that the teen/parent relationship with her fat

Possible spoilers from the first two books in review.

This is such a cool series that doesn't get enough attention.  While book one is my favorite so far, this one was very close.

Kat and Evan spend most of their weekends training.  This has caused a huge issue between Morgan and Kat.  Morgan wants to know what is going on, but Kat doesn't want to risk her life by telling her.  Evan and Seth are going through something similar, but not as intense since Seth is more laid back.  Seth's cousin is now

This is the third book in this young adult paranormal romance series. Once again, it is up to Kat to use her skill of traveling into the past to save her family and the other three families that are entwined with hers. Her feelings for Evan grow stronger though he seems uninterested in her due to the presence of his friend's cousin. The story is a fun read and leaves the reader waiting for the next book in the series. ...more

The Girl Who Loved Ghosts by K.C. Tansley is a young adult novel (that adults will enjoy too) that is part of The Unbelievables series, and they do need to read in order. Each book builds upon what happened in the previous one. Kat is the Langley heir whose special gift ties to the past unlike her other relatives. This allows her to travel back in time to retrieve each of the lost amulets. Kat and Evan only have the Mallory amulet left to recover and they will have to go back further than they h ...more

First I want to thank K.C. Tansley for giving me an advanced reader copy for reviewing purposes. I really appreciate the opportunity to continue reading the series.

Don't let the title fool you into thinking this is the book where Kat finds her love or that it is all hearts and roses. No, this book isn't about that at all. This book is about much more than Kat loving a ghost or anyone for that matter. This book has so much sadness and loneliness in it.

At the start of this book Kat has feelings fo

I received a free ecopy of this book in return for an honest review. I have no connections to the author or publisher other than as a book reviewer. Many thanks to the author and the publisher for this opportunity.

I discovered K. C. Tansley’s books when I was in a reading slump and they were just what I needed. Light reading with a healthy dollop of supernatural. The Girl Who Loved Ghosts is the third book in an ongoing series. You probably need to read the first two, to fully understand what is

It's been 2 years since I read the second book, so I couldn't remember much what happened and didn't have time to reread it. But I was thankful Kat was nice enough to summarize about the four families and the Dark One.

I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The third book in a series is definitely an odd place to start reading a series. It was my fault though because the post stated third book and still I signed up... so that’s how smart I can be sometimes. At first, I wasn’t not loving this book. I almost had a DNF with this tome, but I ended up drastically changing my mind...

Since this is third book, I’m going to avoid talking about what’s go

I’ve been reading The Unbelievables series since the beginning, and it’s been a pleasure watching Kat grow up, just as it’s been a pleasure seeing K.C. Tansley’s writing get deeper and more evocative with every novel. Part of that, of course, is that her main character is getting older, but part of that is that when you’ve been writing in the same world for a while it becomes more and more real, just as it does when you’ve been reading it for a while.

At this point, I feel like Kat and her roomma

Kat seems to love ghosts. She definitely doesn’t want to choose between family and friends. Will things work out. Couldn’t stop reading until I found out. Won this fabulous book and reviewed because I enjoyed it very much. Don’t miss out once it’s released.

Finally, after waiting to long years, we get to read on about Kat's journeys to the past. Because after The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts and The Girl Who Saved Ghosts, this time the journey of Kat and Evan is to the past to retrieve the Mallory amulet, which has been lost over two hundred years ago. However, Kat feels abandoned lately. Her ghost aunt Toria has gone awol, because she the need to take some time off (in the afterlife...), her father is always away chasing dark creatures (especially the ...more

This is the first time in reading this author with the story getting my attention. I do so love a good ghost story like most do. This is also a YA giving it a freshness I did not realize I needed until I started this.
First comes the lure of the mystery that grabs us. Kat and Evan it seems are not your usual students which picked my curiosity. The adventure in this does it justice slowly wrapping us into this world. You are faced with danger also that will come with us trying to get clues as we

KC Tansley does it again! She picks up where she left off in The Girl Who Saved Ghosts.
I love how she can pull you into her books with her well developed characters and storyline. As I read I can’t stop turning the pages wanting to know what happens next.
You definitely should read her first two books to meet the characters and follow on their journey together.
I can not wait for the next book because as usual she leaves you wanting more at the end.

I recieved an ARC for this book from K.C.Tansley and am very thankful for that! This book is an absolute gem! Being the third book in the Unbelievables series, it still has all the heat and adventure. The paranormal and time travel elements are absolutely amazing and the action scenes are very well written and hit me with an adrenaline rush! It is so difficult to put the book down! I've always loved Kat and Evan since I first began reading the series, but this book made me feel that I've become ...more

Jul 24, 2019 rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
The Girl Who Loved Ghosts by K.C. Tansley is book 3 of The Unbelievables. Kat is continuing her magical training while trying to complete her senior year of high school. She with the help of her friends and family must try to reunite the four families while studying for final exams. I found the fantasy theme reminiscent of the Harry Potter books. At times it was hard to keep up with who was who but overall it was a good read. Would recommend for those who like fantasy and magic.

Wow. Another fantastic addition to this wonderful series. Kat and Evan are together once again in life or death situations. The dark one is getting closer, but now there are other enemies as well. Brilliant story and where on earth is the next one.
