Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Sixteen-year-old Kali D’Angelo is a normal, teenage, high school girl. At least she is every other day. On those in between days, she is something entirely different - someone who doesn’t run away from things that go bump in the night. She is someone who runs toward the things that go bump in the night and if they’re smart…they run away from her.

Every Other Day completely took me by surprise. This is exactly the kind of story I was in the mood for. No mousy female leads, no love triangles, and no syrupy sweet friends. What Every Other Day does have is one incredible, powerful heroine, amazingly likeable and snarky characters (oh, how I love my snark) and some seriously scary monsters. As strong as Kali is, (and let me assure you, she is tough as nails) she is also vulnerable - but only through her internal dialogue do we get to see this side of her. Another thing that caught me off guard was the humor that was infused throughout the story. This book had me laughing out loud at times. Jennifer Lynn Barnes’s writing is superb. I couldn’t put Every Other Day down and as for Jennifer Lynn Barnes’s other books… I can’t wait to pick them up!


I received a copy of this book for review from Netgalley.
