    2. **I received the copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review** "Bustle and noise didn't distract me anymore. I was much more likely to be disturbed by quiet. Or, at least, what the quiet conjured up." This was a very good and enjoyable read. I was not just reading the book, I was discovering and unraveling a 129-year-old murder mystery together with Kat, Evan, Morgan, Seth and Josua. The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts was more of a mystery rather than frightening [...]

    3. I am taking part in the blog tour for the second book in this series: The Girl Who Saved Ghosts. For participating in the tour, I was sent copies of both books for review via an invite on NetGalley. This is a YA Paranormal Mystery involving murder, time-travel and lost love. The main character Kat has seen ghosts since childhood but when she is the only person that can crack the secrets of a 129 year old mystery, her life drastically changes. She and three of her friends along with her professor [...]

    4. Actual rating 3.5*I received this book via the publicist in exchange for an honest review*(Video review will be posted on book's release date)I was a little nervous going into this book because there was a lot of information being thrown at me in the synopsis and then I got the book and it is relatively short, not reaching 250 pages. But plot and story-wise, I felt like it followed and arc and told a story - which is good.This story follows a girl named Kat who can see ghosts, but after a near-p [...]

    6. I would like to thank Netgalley and Beckett Publishing Group for giving me the opportunity to read this ARC. I liked the book, I thought it was a good ghost story. It's not really creepy or anything, some of the ideas are creepy, like ghosts taking over your body for good, but that's about it. Every since Kat was a child she could see ghosts, they rocked her in her cradle, sang her to sleep, became friends with her. Until one day she finds a very creepy ghost around her all of the time and she s [...]

    7. This was a short and fairly quick read. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting. I thought that Kat (who could see, but ignored, ghosts) and Evan would be sent back in time to solve a mystery. That part was pretty accurate. For some reason I was not expecting so much to hinge on magic. Overall I enjoyed the story but it wasn't wonderful. The unbelievables and Kat's interactions with them could be confusing at times. The switch between Toria's and Kat's thoughts was also a bit abrupt at times. I l [...]

    8. The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts is the first book in The Unbelievables series, and it was an interesting enough read. In all honesty, my feelings are rather mixed. Some parts of this book I really enjoyed whereas other aspects I wasn’t as crazy about. Whilst I have given it a three-star rating, a three-point-five-star rating is actually more accurate.This book is one of those stories that manages to mix a few different genres into a single book. It’s young adult supernatural read, mixed with som [...]

    10. It was another pleasant surprise to me. I didn't expect to like this book as much as I did. I was gripped by this story from the beginning until the end. I enjoyed the atmosphere, that author created with that old castle and secrets from the past. Of course, there were some issues with it. Firstly, the ending was a little bit too rushed for my taste. Secondly, I preferred characters from the past more, than characters from the present. Actually, main character felt a little bit boring to me in c [...]

    11. I really loved The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts. It has all my favorite things: ghosts, a snarky main character and a great plot. I'm a total supernatural/ghosty reader and I loved the spin on the genre. Tansley weaves words beautifully and I was totally immersed. Highly recommend!My Rating: 5+ stars

    12. I liked it but Yeah, I'd say 2,5 stars.It took me 9 days to finish this book and this is quite unusual for me. I'm usually way faster than that but sometimes my reading speed depends on the book itself. I mean, sometimes you just want to turn the page and see what's going to happen. Sometimes you're reading just because you want to reach the end of the book.I think that a sort of family tree at the beginning of the book would have helped absent-minded readers like yours truly. After five days I [...]

    13. This book was way more than I expected. I finished this book in one sitting because I just couldn't put it down. It was so enjoyable and steady paced I just couldn't stop reading. There never really was a dull moment especially once they get to the castle that's when everything starts to kick off and unfold and it will have you trying to solve this mystery murder right along side the characters. It kind of reminded me of a less gruesome Stalking Jack The Ripper plus a little time travel and of [...]

    14. The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts surprised me in a good way. I went in with very little expectations and now I wonder why I didn't pick it up sooner! Kat ignores ghosts. In her childhood she embraced her power and acknowledged that she could help the lost souls around her. A possession left her scared and she was forced to forget about them in order to keep safe. Now however, as she researches the death of a young couple for school with a group of knowledgable classmates, she gets sucked back into th [...]

    15. I am somewhat intrigued. There doesn't seem to be that much hint for romance so it might be OK and not turn into a fluff fest. \However, I do wonder of one thing- How can one ignore what one knows is true and how can one not believe in what stands infront of one's eyes? She tried to ignore them. But some things won’t be ignored.Kat Preston doesn’t believe in ghosts. Not because she’s never seen one, but because she saw one too many. I mean, I can see how she refuses to acknoledge them or t [...]

    16. I recieved a copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I'm glad I did! This book was an enjoyable read aimed at the YA audience. Part ghost story, part time travel (and an interesting way of doing so) part teenage agnst the story romped along at a good pace. Kat - our 'girl who ignores ghosts' is a likeable and capable main character and her supporting cast are well written too. A few bits towards the end of the book felt a little too easy, a little contrived but this di [...]

    17. Este es uno de esos libros que desearía que tuviera más éxito y se tradujera a otros idiomas, porque es maravilloso y merece un mayor reconocimiento. Te hace meterte en la piel de la protagonista y vivir una montaña rusa de emociones, a la vez que te mantiene en una constante tensión por no saber lo que va a pasar, ya que hay tantas opciones, teorías, giros en la trama y sospechosos que es prácticamente imposible resolver el misterio antes de llegar al final. Sin duda ha sido una de mis m [...]

    18. This book had me hooked from the first page. I was immediately drawn into the world of Kat, who has always seen ghosts but who, for her own survival, has been forced to pretend they don't exist. But when she's drawn into a research project to investigate a murder from the 19th Century, she can no longer push the ghosts aside and becomes far more involved in solving the murder than she could ever have imagined. This is a fast-paced read, with a very engaging heroine and a plot that will keep you [...]

    19. I seldom read YA novels, but I thought this book had all the elements a young adult crowd would enjoy: spunky characters, romantic innuendo, and a centuries-old curse that must be broken. On top of that, a New England island makes for a perfect setting for a story involving ghosts. A fast-paced, enjoyable read. A nice, crisp writing style too.

    20. Filled with mystery, originality and featuring an interesting (though sometimes rather pretentious and odd) main character, The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts is a very strange and gripping story about those who get involved with the paranormal.

    26. "The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts" is a unique blend of murder, mystery, the paranormal and magic that begins when eccentric but likeable Professor Astor at McTernan Academy assigns his research team of four - Evan Kingsley, Kat Preston, her friend Morgan and Seth Fitzgerald to investigate the mysterious disappearance of Cassie Mallory and Sebastion Radcliffe from a blood splattered room on their wedding night in 1886.

    28. "The Unbelievables" Do you believe in "The Unbelievables?" I definitely think that is a more fitting title. I even prefer just the series name, "The Unbelievables" better then I do "The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts." It just doesn't seem catchy enough to me, but hey that's just my opinion and really the only thing I didn't care for about this book. It was a fantastic debut!! The story was very entertaining and well-written. I don't want to call it an actual "ghost story" because it doesn't have the c [...]

    29. I received a copy of this book for free from competitions. Kat is an unusual girl. She has always been able to see ghosts otherwise known as "the Unbelievables" since she was a little girl but was forced to disbelieve in them after almost becoming possessed by one. Fast forward a few years when Kat is a teenager. She is in her junior year at McTernan Academy where she is doing a research project for a professor. The project brings her face to face (so to speak) with the ghosts she has long deni [...]

    30. Review: THE GIRL WHO IGNORED GHOSTS [THE UNBELIEVABLES, #1) by K. C. TansleyThank goodness this is a series--I can't wait! Kat is a 17-year-old prep school junior on scholarship in D. C taking some university-level courses from Georgetown professors. She's called "the girl who ignored ghosts" not because she's a skeptic--far from it. Ghosts--one particular ghost--nearly destroyed her at age 9. Another, kind-hearted ghost, explained how to avoid them: think like an unbeliever, and ghosts can't pe [...]
