One thought on “The Cemetery Boys

  1. Montzalee Wittmann

    The Cemetery Boys by Heather Brewer is an audible book I borrowed from the library and it was a strange but good story A boy and his dad move into a town with his grandmother They leave his mother in a mental hospital because she seems insane but is she You start to wonder as the story goes on The boy of the story wants to fit in with the few kids in town The boys seem normal, the girl that is one of the boys sister seems normal too but something is not right and you just can t put your finger o [...]

    There are just some books that leave me so pissed off I can t speak.This book is about a boy named Stephen who has to move to a small town called Spencer In this town the people are superstitious and wary of new comers Stephen s father is from Spencer, but as soon as he could he got out.Stephen is a selfish brat in my opinion His mother is in a mental institution and he resents her because she got crazy and ruined his life He resents his father for moving him from his hometown of Denver, Colorad [...]

    When I began reading The Cemetery Boys it had a Lost Boys Mothman Prophecies vibe I was intrigued.Stephen is a teen who has been uprooted from his home,due to his Mother s mounting hospital bills Stephen and his Father arrive in Spencer,to live with his grandmother.I am going to speed this up a bitwn is oddNew boy meets goth girl instaloveNew boy meets goth girl s creepy brother and his graveyard dwelling gangins ghoulish sociopathswnies start going all Wickerman and my interest quickly wanes.I [...]

    Super weird but I liked it It was kind of slow most of the time but the writing style was really great I wish there was a little detail and excitement but I had no idea of what to expect for this book so I m not really disappointed.I read it in one setting and I m glad that I did because I think I would have been a little bored if I had read this over a few days I did really like the concept and writing so I ll probably check out the author s other books soon.

  5. Cait (Paper Fury)

    Whyyyy is it that the most fabulous looking books always make me cry softly with despair Basically I cried softly with despair SO MANY EXPECTATIONS It sounded like an awesome rehash of The Graveyard Book with some horror, plus I was hoping foolishly maybe some The Raven Boys because of OBVIOUS title relations Yeah It s basically a contemporary about a moody teenager with about 30% actually being about the scary things lurking in the cemetery It did have ONE plot twist that surprised me and made [...]

  6. Mitch

    I ll have a Mountain D Everyone You re gonna burn You re all gonna burn That about summarizes my experience with this The chapters are short and kind of underdeveloped and mostly involve either 1 hanging out around town or 2 people yelling YOU RE GONNA BURN in capital letters no less in the most random places to make sure the reader hasn t fallen into a coma from reading 1 It s only 19 chapters in total too, so there really wasn t enough room to flesh out the main players or really give them any [...]

    Thanks to First Reads I now own an ARC of this book And thanks to HarperTeen and Edelweiss for allowing me to read an e galley of this title I have to say that I am one of the biggest fans of Heather Brewer, and consider myself to belong to her minion horde I ve met her several times, and plan to meet her again any time she is in my town or at some event where I m at She s such a great voice for young people, and her stories are all very good Okay, I m not very good at gushing I guess, that was [...]

    My thanks to HarperCollins Edelweiss Point of View Single Stephen Writing First Person Past TenseSetting Spencer, MichiganGenre Young Adult Thriller Horror Actual Rating 3.5I still have mixed feelings about this book On one hand, I know that I loved the horror and the weird cult stuff in this book, while on the other, it felt a little off somehow The dark paranormal part of the book was pretty creepy, but the main character kind of got on my nerves.Let s begin with Stephen I know for sure that h [...]

  9. Stacee

    Oh this was fantastic A very interesting premise with creepy atmosphere that only Heather could conjure up I m always amused at how authentic her male MCs sound It was a lot of fun being Stephen s head, especially when he was interacting with Cara The dynamic between Devon and the other boys is interesting and there were some amazing twists that I didn t see coming As always, Auntie Heather gave us a fun, spooky read Huge thanks to The Bookcase for sending me the arc

  10. Korrina(OwlCrate)

    That wasweird But enjoyable I stayed up late reading this one because I couldn t put it down The ending really surprised me, which is always fun I wanted a Halloween story and that s exactly what this book delivers It wasn t perfect, and I had some issues with a few things, but for a quick spooky tale I would definitely recommend this one

  11. Leah

    2.5 StarsThe story sounded like it had the potential to be a phenomenal read to me, but it wasn t I guessed the twist pretty early on, and I wasn t ever truly invested in Stephen or any of the other characters Maybe it was because the book is under 300 pages, and there wasn t enough time to build up a connection with the characters, or maybe the writing didn t allow for a connection to be made.Or maybe I wasn t in the mood to read a book like this I thought I was, until I started reading it, and [...]

  12. Rikke

    3.5 4 stars I recently watched The Lost Boys again This story holds a similar vibe It s what makes it so compelling the eery small town weirdness The paranormal beliefs and the superstition It s really quite great I definitely enjoyed it a lot It s not exactly fast paced, though, and you may need some kind of connection to make it stand out At least, I doubt I would have enjoyed it as much, if it hadn t reminded me one of my favorite childhood movies.

    Check out Bookish Antics for reviews, giveaways and interviews Ever since I read Heather Brewer s The Chronicles Of Vladimir Tod series, I ve been a hardcore minion and so, I was eager to read The Cemetery Boys Brewer really knows how to recreate the feel of a small town with a spooky atmosphere and write an awesome YA horror novel Though I m not a fan of the romance in this novel and predicted the ending early on, I really enjoyed it.When Stephen s dad loses his job, he is forced to take him an [...]

  14. Christina Marie

    I don t think I really enjoyed this one But I didn t HATE it It was really unbelievable for me Another read that I m just not compatible with.This YA horror follows a young boy named Stephen and his new life with his father in small town Spencer, Michigan In this town, he meets twins Cara and Devon Through his newfound relationship with these twins, Stephen learns of a not so normal tradition that has permeated the founding history of Spencer Somehow he gets wrapped up in it He also learns that [...]

    I had such high hopes for this but unfortunately I ended up only liking it I think for this review, I ll list my likes and dislikes Let s get the dislikes out of the way.My main problem was that I didn t like any of the characters, not a single one Stephen is the MC and he was so hard to like He was so sullen and came across as selfish and mean I know he is a teen and supposed to be sullen but I just found him to be a trouble maker I wanted him to have his own mind, but unfortunately he follows [...]

  16. Celine

    The Cemetery Boys is my first experience with the writings of Heather Brewer, author of the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series Although the story didn t hold any surprises for me, I m interested enough to pick up her other books When Stephen s dad loses his job, they are forced to move back to his dad s home town, some weird small town called Spencer Here he meets Cara, a cute girl, and her brother Devon Devon and his friends love to hang out at the cemetery After a while Stephen discovers that n [...]

  17. Cori Reed

    I didn t like this book The main character was just plain awful, and I don t think it was intentional Do not recommend.

  18. Dark Faerie Tales

    Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick Dirty How far would you go for what you believed Opening Sentence We d left my old house as if we were stealing away in the night.The Review The prologue ruined this story for me It could have been sooo awesome if I hadn t read that little snippet at the start of the book It was like a spoiler that was not required so infuriating Otherwise, the Cemetery Boys was a thrilling read It s dark, morbid and the perfect story for Friday 13th.Stephen has a hard t [...]

  19. Ricky

    Auntie Heather s first all new story in three years was one I was dying to read for a very long time Seeing it at last, I was far from disappointed although I was pretty devastated Between the sad circumstances of Stephen s move to Spencer, and the shocking ending that I totally did not see coming well, not totally, only cause the first major villain is given away in the prologue, but the second, not so much , it s safe to say that this is Auntie Heather s darkest tale yet.Highlights include The [...]

  20. Sarah (Head Stuck In A Book)

    I was so intrigued with the concept of The Cemetery Boys, the idea of a town that has it s own folklore, an urban legend that Stephen who has moved to the town of Spencer with his Father gets involves in when he befriends twins Devon and Cara and their friends.The legend is to be rid of the bad times in the small town a human sacrifice is to be made to the Winged Ones, and the good times shall prevail, the residents of Spencer take this lore seriously, Stephen takes the stories with a grain of s [...]

  21. Me, My Shelf and I

    The Lost Boys with out vampires This is how I explained the book to my husband when he asked what I was reading I thoroughly enjoyed every one of the 288 pages, my only complaint was that this was Heather Brewer s first stand alone, which means that there will be no tales around the bonfire at the Playground at night What is there not to like a small town with secrets, a pair of creepy and polar opposite twins, and a band of misfit boys who seem to live outside the law.If you love twisty and da [...]

  22. Justin

    This was about a 3 star read most of the way through it, then towards the end I realized it was a bad guy explains everything in the end book I personally believe that any novel that the author has to have a character explain everything rather than being able to write it in a way that you slowly piece it together yourself to be poorly written To make it worse, the explanations where rediculous and eye rolling, and a few felt like cop outs to a part of the mystery that the author didn t know how [...]

  23. Bookworm007

    Glad she s writing a standalone, by the looks of it , but all I want her to focus on right now is writing Legacy of Tril Only read the 1st book so far and absolutely can NOT get enough of that thrilling universe edit on Oct 12th, 2013Just found out that Soulbroken and the entire Legacy of Tril series is cancelled for possibly forever

  24. Christina (Ensconced in Lit)

    I received a copy of this ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.I ve been meaning to read a book by Heather Brewer for a long time now as she is a wonderful St Louis author, a terrific person, and an important advocate against bullying When I heard Heather speak about this particular book, a mix of small town small mindedness plus a bit of horror and paranormal, I thought it was a perfect place to start.The Cemetery Boys is a combination of Lord of the Flies meets small town horror [...]

  25. Katie

    The Cemetery Boys was my first Heather Brewer book but if it s any indication of her talents as a storyteller, it definitely won t be my last The Cemetery Boys is an intriguing mix of horror and paranormal and it hooked me from the very start.I honestly can t tell you what I expected from The Cemetery Boys It s unlike anything I ve read and the synopsis really didn t give me a clue what was going to happen I think that s the perfect way to go into this one The prologue and first few chapters are [...]

  26. Victoria

    This is my first experience with Brewer s writing and I must say that I have rather mixed feelings about this book Stephen and his dad move in with the grandmother that Stephen has never met in a small Michigan town It s evident that the town, much like Stephen s own family, are going through some bad times And what s , the town seems to have a rather gruesome history with its own mythology of powerful Winged Ones who can bring prosperity but only at a blood price While the premise of a small to [...]

  27. Vicki Willis

    This was a very young adult story, like a story for teenagers And basing it on that, it was good It took place in small town and followed some teenagers over a summer There was some teen angst and typical relationship stuff, but it added to the mystery It wrapped up at the end with one little surprise A quick, fun read.

  28. Nicole (( lost in the book's world ))

    VERY TWIST PLOT AndI LOVE IT SO much At the beginning, I was like, DUH I know who knock Stephen out Oblivious, Devon BUTI thought Devon did killed someone and planning to kill Stephen.I was wrong.Now I know who I won t said the name because it will be super spoil SOah It is so TWIST and SICK But I still love it Bahaha
