Review by Ryan: The haunting of Sunshine Girl!

Reviews 0 Comments 28th May, 2015

This is a review of The Haunting of Sunshine Girl Book 1 written by Paige McKenzy. Published by Weinstein Books in 2015.   The Haunting of Sunshine Girl is an interesting book, that is based on the hit YouTube series of the same name.  Having watched the YouTube series for many years, even contributing to both of the movies, Search for Black eyed Kids and THR33, I can honestly say that I am a fan of Paige McKenzy and her work.  As such this will be, as all reviews truely are, a biased writing about the first book in this… Read more »

  Are review really important? When was the last time you saw a great movie? Recently, my husband and I saw American Sniper. Controversy aside, it was a truly fantastic portrayal of one soldier’s hardships in the face of unbelievably gut-wrenching decisions, life and death decisions that made me even more grateful to the men and women who make sure I have the freedom to go see a movie on Saturday afternoon. The first thing I did after leaving the theater? Posted my opinion on Facebook.  Twelve people “liked” my post and several left comments. But the last time I… Read more »
