    The Bargaining By Carly Anne West The fact that neither of her parents wants to deal with her is nothing new to Penny She s used to being discussed like a problem, a problem her mother has finally passed on to her father What she hasn t gotten used to is her stepmother especially when she finds out that she ll have to spend the summer with April in the remote woods of Washington to restore a broken downThe fact that neither of her parents wants to deal with her is nothing new to Penny She s used to being discussed like a problem, a problem her mother has finally passed on to her father What she hasn t gotten used to is her stepmother especially when she finds out that she ll have to spend the summer with April in the remote woods of Washington to restore a broken down old house.Set deep in a dense forest, the old Carver House is filled with abandoned antique furniture, rich architectural details, and its own chilling past The only respite Penny can find away from April s renovations is in Miller, the young guy who runs the local general store He s her only chance at a normal, and enjoyable, summer.But Miller has his own connection to the Carver House, and it s one that goes beyond the mysterious tapping Penny hears at her window, the handprints she finds smudging the glass panes, and the visions of children who beckon Penny to follow them into the dark woods Miller s past just might threaten to become the terror of Penny s future.

    • I picked up this book because of the woods theme For whatever reason, creepy dark forests that have a mind and story and life all of their own, just appeal to me.I love the dark rich atmosphere, the creepiness and of course the mystery behind them Who wasn t afraid to go into the woods alone at night Who hasn t heard a good ghost story over a campfire and been too afraid to fall asleep at night There is just something I love about them and after combining the cover with the synopsis it was just [...]


    • This review has also been posted on The Social PotatoThis book is far from perfect but I absolutely adored it When I first dived into this book, I pretty much had no idea what it was about, I remembered reading the blurb and being intrigued but the only concrete detail I remembered was that this book had something to do with woods I had thought I was diving into a paranormal book, instead I found myself amidst a horror and a well written one at that.I am not going to say there weren t loop holes [...]


    • I recieved this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review I really, REALLY wanted to like this book I mean, look at how gorgeous that cover is and the synopsis is super creepy, but I was extremely disappointed I HATED the first 65% of this book It was confusing and the pace of the book moved painstakingly slow, but the ending of this book was crazy The writing of this book was pretty good, other than the fact that I was super confused through the majority of it I do not blame that on [...]


    • I received a free copy via Edelweiss.First Impression The Bargaining was a riveting, if not a little slow paced, gothic novel The atmosphere is fantastically creepy and Carly Anne West has done an excellent job Nevertheless, I think the slow pacing kept this from getting four stars from me.Review I went into The Bargaining with not quite so high expectations after reading some GR reviews I soon realised that was a mistake because The Bargaining is a generally good gothic novel Penny has been thr [...]


    • 3.5 stars Arc provided by Simon Pulse through Edelweiss Release Date February 17What it felt like reading this title Uncovering layer upon layer of truths tightly wrapped in different time dates, never knowing exactly who was going to present them, and what I was going to find nextAlso, it was _what I guess would be _ akin to be blindfolded, with no clue whatever of what was happening, with no compass, and at the mercy of a vast number of unknown characters, who d just make an appearance, and wo [...]


    • I received the ARC eBook free as a review copy from the publisher through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review Did not finish at 75%.I simply could not get into this book From the second I saw the cover and read the synopsis I thought it was something I d like or even love, but after I started reading nothing stood out to catch my interest With no expectations I still managed to be disappointed Granted I did stick it out to 75% but I must have skim read at least half of that which is somet [...]


    • I picked this one up on a whim because I was mostly drawn to the cover and then of course the synopsis I liked the pacing of the book which kept it moving and I loved the creepiness of the story which kept me engaged I found that there seemed to be a lot to the story than the synopsis tells us and I was pleased by that The ending of the book was not what I expected, but on the other hand it would be expected to happen the way it did, if that makes sense.In this story we have Penny who has many [...]


    • Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick Dirty How lonely are the woods Opening Sentence The first thing I should see is Pop with his belt.The Review This is why I do not like horror stories They creep the hell out of me and give me nightmares for days or nights, I guess I tried to read this book as quickly as possible just so I could get to the ending But at 400 odd pages, it took a while So this is for real then he says.I nod because I can t make myself say the words I want to be casual about [...]


    • This was CREEPY Like The Ring, The Conjuring, and Children of the Corn creepy and I loved every minute of it I have been on the look out for a book that puts the creepy first and everything else on the backburner and The Bargaining does this flawlessly Penny having just been shipped to live with her dad after another incident at school learns she has to endure a summer with her stepmom The summer will bring renovations on an old house and hopefully a new beginning for Penny She isn t happy about [...]


    • The Bargaining is quite possibly the most terrifying book I ve read in a while I might be in the minority in this one, but I quite liked the author s YA debut novel, The Murmurings, so I expected The Bargaining to be creepy, but this one surpassed each and every single one of my expectations by far The horror scenes are just so spectacularly written It s amazing what West managed to do with this one because her delivery of tension and horror was relentless and deftly written to the point that th [...]


    • Not bad Not bad at all I probably would ve given this another star but the ending was a bit unbelievable Not the actual events so much as the trade itself And then you get that last chapter that was just weird It wasn t a twist or anything It just was It felt utterly random and almost not even part of the book.But for YA horror suspense, this was fairly good I ve certain read a whole lot worse.




    • The Bargaining is the best YA horror I ve read in a long time The descriptions, pace, creepy house and surroundings, and sense of wrongness reminded me of The Shining What better compliment can I give a horror novel than to compare it to one of Stephen King s Here s the deal after being thrown away by her mother and made to live with her dad and stepmom, Penny is forced to spend the summer renovating a house with April the evil stepmother Truth is, April is not so evil She s actually pretty swee [...]


    • 3.5 Stars Just to start off, I m a major horror junkie When it comes to books, the creepier and gorier the better When I read the blurb for the book and found out two people were going to be staying in a creepy cabin deep in the woods in a small town, I got so excited It sounded like a legit horror movie After finishing the book, only about 45% of it felt creepy basically the second half with a couple of scenes in the beginning The scenes that did creep me out were really well written Carly Anne [...]


    • Everyone has regrets they must live with Penny has some certain regrets many people can relate to One of these being her friendship with a girl named Rae, who has influenced who Penny is now Penny, along with April, will be out in the woods for the summer Her only solace is Miller, a local store owner Through out the story we learn a little about Penny s past and why she is the way she is but the real adventure is just getting started In a old, run down house fear is in the air The tapping on th [...]


    • My thanks to Simon Pulse EdelweissPoint of View Single Penny Warren Writing First Person Present TenseSetting Phoenix Seattle Genre Young Adult Fantasy HorrorIn general, I thought it was quite a nice read since I found it kind of creepy and all that However, it took way too long for something interesting to happen, and by the time it did happen, I sort of lost interest in the book all ready So, to me, I think the pace was way too slow.I can t say I like the characters, either, especially Penny t [...]


    • I loved the premise which is why I wanted to read the book There was some interest there, enough for me to finish the book But the ending just sucked There was no resolution to the mystery It just left you wondering even And since this is not a series, it s not a standalone that tied things up in the end It just left you hanging.Plus some of the phrases were confusing Not the best choice descriptions I started to wander a little, veering away from the story The suspension of disbelief wasn t so [...]


    • Well, honestly giving this book four stars may be a little too nice of me Three for sure though It was a good and captivating read BUT, lots of unanswered things Such as, the ending The last two chapters grabbed my brain and flipped it around, and not in a good way It was like those math jokes, If Gary has 5 apples and Cindy has 7 bananas how many trains will be blue That s about how much sense the ending made The author tried to do too many little stories at once, and then in the end it s as if [...]


    • Creepy things happening in the woods Say no , that s always a story I will want to read In this case, the creepy woods are in Washington State, where children periodically go missing Penny, a troubled teen, is forced to spend a summer renovating a dilapidated house in the middle of the woods with her stepmother, April The locals are unfriendly, weird stuff starts happening, the house is a money pit disaster, etc Unfortunately, the first 75% of the book is very slow paced There are too many repet [...]


    • I m so glad I found this book on our local bookstore and took the risk of buying it on hardcovers because well, look at the cover And the color It s so intriguing and beautiful I scare easily, really, but it doesn t stop me from liking scary stories movies and this book This book is just so perfectly scary It gave me all the chills as soon as Chapter 3 And seriously, it made me paranoid to the point that I don t want to be left alone sleeping It s so good And I so love the title and the story, I [...]


    • I received this book for free via SimonSchuster ebook subscriber read Thank you The story is thrilling, horror, brings fears make your hair stand up But there is than the introduction says you might find out the horrible stepmom is a person you had no idea about, what her actual personality is there s when you dig in, place an effort in anything its about finding the truth the history hides and everyone avoiding the topic seeing dead and of letting go.My wonder was that she could reach the des [...]


    • I can see why this title was nominated for the 2017 HS Sequoyah list While several reviews stated that this story was slow going in places, I did not find that to be true for me I read through it in just a few days and could not wait to find out what would happen to the characters next Parts of it reminded me of a scary movie The author gives readers pieces of a puzzle that don t fully come together until mid way through the book The ending seemed somewhat abrupt and we never really find out the [...]


    • This story is such a creepy, convoluted, mind trippy read that I couldn t help but enjoy every minute of it There is something enthralling for me, when a book doesn t spell things out and leaves you a bit dazed and confused at the end You are forced to think for your self and try and piece things together, even if they may never really fit in the same puzzle This book is not for everyone Most of the time you need to be fully engaged to pick up on things or else have to go back and reread How eve [...]


    • DNF at 15% It was so difficult to follow I did not know which character was talking and there were no setting descriptions.



    • I had to put this aside for a while Its definitely creepy but I just can t get into the story Hopefully I can pick it up again before it releases.


    • There is so much I could say about this book I read it in less than 24 hours, and am still thinking about it days later It is so weird obviously creepy, haunting, and just weird I m still not sure if I love it, hate it, or both.The beginning the first 100 so pages was entirely too slow, and made me believe that half the readers that pick up this book don t end up actually finishing it The story actually begins when Penny and her step mom get to the woods I also thought it was totally odd how Pen [...]


    • After an incident involving the death of her ex best friend, Penny is shipped off to live with her father, stepmother April, and stepbrother April has just bought an old house to renovate, and it is decided that Penny will accompany her to help in hopes that this will reform Penny s deviant ways Even before they reach the house, strange things begin to happen, and Penny is drawn into a mystery surrounding the house and the North Woods and several children who disappeared there years ago Disappea [...]


    • Okay guys, so I bought this book two years ago and intended on reading it then, but skip to October 2017, and I m just now reading it So this book was an okay book to me It was slow at first then about half way through it picked up But, I got so confused through the last half and still am Not a lot of the mysteries were solved It leaves you scratching your head trying to piece it together I m willing to give Carly s books another go if I ever come across them again, but she is not an author I m [...]
