My Nails and My Book Review - The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts by K.C. Tansley


Title: The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts
Series: The Unbelievable #1
Author: K.C. Tansley

Goodreads Summary: Kat Preston doesn’t believe in ghosts. Not because she’s never seen one, but because she saw one too many. Refusing to believe is the only way to protect herself from the ghost that tried to steal her life. Kat’s disbelief keeps her safe until her junior year at McTernan Academy, when a research project for an eccentric teacher takes her to a tiny, private island off the coast of Connecticut. 

The site of a grisly mystery, the Isle of Acacia is no place for a girl who ignores ghosts, but the ghosts leave Kat little choice. Accompanied by her research partner, Evan Kingsley, she investigates the disappearance of Cassie Mallory and Sebastian Radcliffe on their wedding night in 1886. Evan’s scientific approach to everything leaves Kat on her own to confront a host of unbelievables: ancestral curses, powerful spells, and her strange connection to the ghosts that haunt Castle Creighton.

But that’s all before Kat’s yanked through a magic portal and Evan follows her. When the two of them awaken 129 years in the past with their souls trapped inside the bodies of two wedding guests, everything changes. Together, Kat and Evan race to stop the wedding-night murders and find a way back to their own time—and their own bodies—before their souls slip away forever.

My Review: **I voluntarily reviewed this ARC**

I was presently surprised by this book. Since the main character was a teen, I expected the typical YA drama, but the characters were surprisingly mature. The body sharing was interesting, but at times I was a little confused on who was controlling the body. The mystery was well written, and I loved the paranormal elements.

My Manicure: Two important plot items in this book are a sapphire ring and a ruby necklace, so I decided to combine them into one manicure. My sapphire base is Zoya Dream. For my ruby, I stamped using Bundle Monster P101 and Bundle Monster So Metal. I filled in the gem with KBShimmer Garnet while it was still on the stamper, then put Orly Bonder on my nail and stamped the image on after it got tacky.
