The Girl Who Heard Demons by Janette Rallison


Shy Adelle Hansen hears demons, but she’s determined to make friends at her new high school by keeping her ability secret.
When she overhears supernatural voices celebrating the impending death of the school quarterback, Levi Anderson, she knows she has to do something to prevent it. However, the demons aren’t the ones plotting; they’re just celebrating the chaos, and Adelle must contend with earthly forces as well if she wants to preserve Levi’s life.
Handsome, popular Levi doesn't appreciate Adelle’s self-appointed role of guardian angel. As Adelle battles to keep him safe, she’ll have to protect her heart, too. Can she do both?

  Opening line:

"The demons came again during the night."

First off, I love Janette Rallison's writing style and humor so I was excited this book won on kindlescout.

Second: I got this book because I nominated it and it won!

Third: Did I say I love Janette Rallison's writing? It's A Mall World After All had me laughing out loud.

I was a little worried about reading this book at night, but I didn't need to worry, other than I stayed up late reading because I wanted to know what happened next! Danger, demons, delicious romance all mixed in this book.

Adelle and Levi are the main characters and get their own chapters. Each have something they are struggling with and have to learn how to overcome it. I enjoyed reading their points of view and felt they added well to each others story and the overall plot. They were cute and funny and real to me.

There are bad, bad guys and they are evil. No punches are pulled in describing them and their deeds. Right from the beginning of the book I wondered what choices I've made now and in the past that might attract a nasty demon to hang out with me. It was an interesting takeaway.

While this is a young adult book, I think readers of upper reading levels would enjoy it.

DAUGHTER OF ISHMAEL by Diane Tolley BLOG TOUR and SPOTLIGHT!

I'm spotlighting Diane Tolley's book Daughter of Ishmael!
(Isn't the cover pretty??)


Hannah, faithful third daughter of Ishmael has been raised happily in the home of an honourable man. A woman wholly committed to her Saviour. A woman who understands Nephi’s love of the scriptures and commitment to the gospel and secretly longs for such a husband, but finds herself given in marriage to his older brother, Lemuel.
Through the women’s eyes, Daughter of Ishmael follows the family of Ishmael as they commit themselves to Lehi and find their faith tested in the wilderness. Recounts their struggles there with deaths, births and apostasy. Tells of their time in Bountiful and the building of a ship. And their suffering below decks on the Great Irriantum when Laman and Hannah’s husband, Lemuel battle the Lord Himself in their drive to defeat Nephi and take control of the family.
Even their arrival in the Promised Land isn’t without its challenges as they settle. Pride, envy and greed are…
