Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7-10-All Colette Iselin wants is to be accepted by perfect, icy Hannah and her slightly sweeter sidekick, Pilar. This means pretending that her family still has money and being mean to her brother, her mother, her unpopular classmates, her teacher, and pretty much anyone else who crosses her path. However, on a class trip to France, Colette gets distracted from her quest to be cool. First, she starts seeing Marie Antoinette's ghost (which would distract most people) and begins to fall for her nerdy-cute French tour guide. Colette realizes that the ghost is killing people and that she is next on the list, due to her family's heretofore secret role in the French Revolution. None of this is very believable, and even the realistic elements don't always ring true, as Colette and her classmates rarely step out of their stereotypes. The plot strands come together, complete with an Eiffel Tower kiss and a party held at Versailles. That said, the story moves along at a steady clip and every so often devolves into delicious, campy mayhem. This is a good choice for teens who want to dip their toes into historical fiction (emphasis on the fiction) without giving up cinematic pacing or romance. Colette transforms through the course of the novel, realizing the value of loyalty over prestige, and though that process might not be believable, many readers will find her story enjoyable.-Gesse Stark-Smith, Multnomah County Library, Portland, ORα(c) Copyright 2013.

As my year of reading comes to a close I found myself trying to decide on what books I need to read so I can hit my bucket list goal of 200. I decided it was time to maybe start cleaning off my "to be read" shelf on Goodreads. I currently have over 6000 books on that shelf (yes I know insanity) and this book was listed third, meaning it was one of the oldest books I shelved. I remembered when I first read about this book and I was like yeah I am going to read that.

Plus let's be honest here, that cover is pretty bad ass, plus it takes place in Paris. Who doesn't want to go to Paris?

This book is truly junk food for the brain, it is not going to educate you and make you a rocket scientist but it is going to give you a fun ride and make you giggle. Kinda like sugar. I enjoyed this book, it is certainly a book you can't take too serious, because I mean come on it is about the ghost of Marie Antoinette getting even... I mean can you take that seriously?

This is a light and fun book and should be read as such. Don't expect too much world building. When I picked it up, I just wanted a ffast and light read. That's exactly what I got.

I especially enjoyed the scenes that the people gets killed in. There is no way to say it and have it sound not creepy. But I'll try. I really like how the author described those scenes. They are very different from the rest of the novel. While the book is written in a very casual way, the death chapters are written in a very beautiful prose. It made the deaths beautiful yet chilling.

I loved everything about this book. Except for one thing: why does Marie Antoinette decide to hunt the people now, after so many generations?

So I think I had really high expectations when I read the synopsis for Marie Antoinette Serial Killer. This book in the, for me, ended up as nothing special. It was an ok read that in end all it left me with was a really strong desire to visit Paris. I liked the beautiful descriptions of the city but the story was bit boring. It took too long to get to the climactic ending that it felt rushed in the end.
The story is about a ghost out for revenge and she is killing the decedents of the people who betrayed her. Colette is excited about her trip to Paris and is very excited to be going to Paris for the first time. In Paris she finds out that her ancestor is one the people who betrayed Marie Antoinette and that now she has to fight for her life and the life of her friends. Meanwhile, she is investigating, getting involved with cute boys and finding herself in Paris. I liked the concept of the story it was very interesting but I don't know it just wasn't very spooky. I hate to say this but if I am being honest it felt like one of those Mary Kate and Ashley travel movies but add in ghosts to make it a Halloween special. Teenagers in a foreign country sightseeing, kissing, and finding themselves for me it was nothing new and I expected that it. It was the concept of Marie Antoinette as a vengeful serial killing ghost that was supposed to be intriguing but it fell flat me. The story kind of dragged in parts for me. It felt more like a travel guide to Paris and the life and times of the Paris elite than a bone chilling ghost story. I felt like it was easy to skim read to get to the more exciting parts. I kind of had the mystery of motive figured out way before Collette ever got there.

{my thoughts} - I really enjoyed reading this book. It was fast paced, romance, engaging, had a bit of mystery, history and teenage drama.

Colette is apparently an a middle class teenager that is taking her first trip to Paris for a class field trip. She has two best friends Hannah and Pilar that fall on the rich scale. It has been months since Colette shared the same status and was only allowed to continue attending her school with her friends because she was accepted for a scholarship. This also makes things difficult for her when they go shopping together because she can't just spend what she'd like, in most cases she doesn't have the funds to waste.

When they get to Paris with their class they learn that there has been a murder in which a teen had been beheaded. This murder advances into a string of serial killings in which the killer has been unable to be identified. The string of murders start to lead Colette and a classmate Audrey as well as their tour guide on a mission to find out exactly what is going to be taking place and why things are taking place.

This book was a very nice read. If you'd like to know what takes place inside it's pages: I'd suggest reading it. A lot happens in such a short amount of time a lot of things that you wouldn't ordinarily think would take place.

{reason for reading} - I obtained a copy of this book from a fellow blogger in exchange for a review and I was accepted to review it through netgalley.

I wasn't sure how to deal with this story first but I listened to it on my kindle and the more I listened the more I liked it. It's a little silly in parts but it doesn't take itself too seriously so it works ok. I enjoyed the end and all in all it wasn't a bad story.
