About the Author

Katie Alender, the author of the Bad Girls Don't Die series, is a graduate of the Florida State University Film School. When she's not writing novels, she can usually be found in her sewing room, making things for her friends or her dog (or her friends' dogs). She also enjoys reading, eating delicious high-calorie foods, and hanging out at home in Los Angeles with her husband and her very spoiled Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Winston.

More About the Author

Katie Alender was born and raised in Florida with her three siblings. She attended an arts high school, focusing on writing and video production, and continued her education at Florida State University, majoring in Film. She currently lives with her husband (her college sweetheart) and her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Winston, in Los Angeles, CA, where she works as a freelance producer/writer. For several years, she produced televised dog shows, and she can probably tell you more about dogs than you would ever want to know. When she's not working, she can usually be found at her sewing machine, making quilts and other gifts for friends and readers.

Katie's first brush with publication came in 1991, when her article "So You Want to Live On Mars?" was published in Sassy Magazine's Reader Produced Issue. She loves dogs, the color red, good food, practicing yoga (emphasis on "practicing"), hanging out with her friends, and (of course) reading. She is a Gemini and would probably be a Ravenclaw if she went to Hogwarts. Her favorite authors include Amy Tan, Paula Danziger, Jane Austen, and Stephen King.

"Bad Girls Don't Die" is her first book.

My first thought when reading the synopsis was "This family seriously has bad luck. How can they be getting mixed back up in something supernatural?" I loved the first book, Sarah creeped me out more than words can say...then again, as a child I had a fear of one of my dolls. I was convinced she'd come alive, but I'm not reviewing the first book.

The sequel holds that same scary factor. It's more of a gradual build-up. The whole time in my head I was going "No, Lexi, no no no no!" You'd think after the last book, she'd have learned not to toy with things of this sort. That aside, my inner teenage girl totally understands why there is an appeal to being perfect and getting everything you want. Who cares if you have to take an oath?

There was one line towards the end of the book that rocked me to my core. It was definitely one of the most frightening lines I've read in a book in a very long time. I read a lot of horror/thrillers that I don't review, so for me to say it's that bad is kind of a big deal. After that line, things sped up and went at a rapid, yet appropriate rate.

My heart ached for Carter and Kasey both. Moreso for Carter since he had no clue what was really going on. I have to admit, I kind of missed Carter throughout the book, but also would love to see more of Jared.

If you have read this review and haven't picked up the first book and love being scared/creeped out, pick it up! If you loved the first book you won't be disappointed with the sequel and then can join me in eagerly awaiting the third book. From Bad to Cursed will be in stores on 6/14.

I received From Bad to Cursed as an ARC from the publisher, Disney-Hyperion in exchange for my honest review on Letters Inside Out.

Format: Hardcover
From Bad to Cursed by Katie Alender is the second book in the Bad Girls Don't Die trilogy. I found a lot more depth and meaning in this novel than I expected to find! Beyond just containing a really creepy ghostly mystery, I think the characters' experiences added extra layers to the story.

Teenagers have a long history of searching for a way to feel beautiful and popular. The lengths some will go to (especially girls) can get really out-of-hand. That is definitely true in this novel! Kasey, who was possessed by a vengeful ghost in the first book of the series, accidentally gets herself roped into another situation where she finds herself possessed. This time she drags her older sister Alexis and Alexis' best friend Megan along with her.

Alexis goes to a meeting of The Sunshine Club intending to put a stop to it to keep Kasey safe - but before long finds herself pledging loyalty to the god Aralt. The members start showing up to school looking much prettier...before long they realize they are also acing quizzes they didn't study for and attracting attention from the popular crowd that had ignored them in the past. Exactly what is Aralt doing with their lives?

I found the plot really engrossing - it is definitely a twisty-windy journey to find out exactly who/what Aralt is and how he is managing to control their lives. The plot is 100% contained in the novel, you definitely don't have to read the first book of the series to keep up with it (although I recommend doing so just so you have more background on the characters - and because this series is entertaining and creepy).

Putting aside the supernatural, the girls learn that sometimes being popular and gorgeous isn't worth all the trouble it takes.

This is a good read--well written, with fairly memorable characters. Since I didn't read the first book, there was a great sense of the mysterious unknown which gave it a haunting quality. That was good. Overall, though, it's a bit cliched. I would recommend it for ages ten to fifteen.

While reading, I could always feel the underlying creepiness factor. As the story went on though, it began to deteriorate into something a little too unrealistic for my liking. With a 'magical' club and 'perfect' girls, it turned into something more like a fantasy, not a thriller/mystery.

Although I consider this one of the lighter Teen Ya books. It was very good and I loved that they added real elements of how to get rid of ghosts and spirits etc. It was a joy to read and very creepy!! The only element they didnt use was salt. Which demons and ghosts dont like.

Book- From Bad to Cursed
Source- Library Copy

Now let's start out with I did like this book. I just like the first one a lot better. This one started out hopeful. I was excited to know how the un-lucky family ended up in another paranormal situation.
However the book became repetitive and a bit boring. There wasn't a lot of action. Now someone might argue that the first one did not have to much action either. The action part did not bother me as much as the fact of the repetitive and strained relationships between the characters.
Luckily the last part of the novel saved me from making an absolutely horrible review.

*Warning spoilers ahead!*

The beginning led me into months after the incidents in the first novel, so that was pretty cool. Katie Alender managed to make the time jump smoothly. We got caught up about the spaced out time also. I was not left hanging.
I felt horrible for Alexis. However the book did not lead me to think Alexis as whiny and helpless. The writing was excellent on that.
The Sunshine Club is a unique idea. Alexis's little sister is after all a misfit of sorts. Alexis and Kasey's relationship is strained throughout the novel. Kasey is determined to not have protection. I found that a bit un-realistic. I can't imagine Kasey being very brave after being locked up for months.
The Sunshine girls are all unique and off and just different. The curse however affects them to form them into pretty, popular things. This led to disastrous circumstances.
The curse was not in depth. The space between finding out what the curse was and being 'sunny' was boring and repetitive. Now it did have some sparks here and there but the sparks weren't there from the first book.
I didn't feel any excitement.
