๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 


Most of the reviews say this is just like Hotel California...the song...so I read the lyrics...and...yeah, I totally see that.  It's almost as if the Author just made up a story, albeit a YA one, to go along with those lyrics.  I think if you go into this knowing it's more or less a story to go with that song...you might not be so disappointed.  Whether or not that was the Author's intention is unknown to me or irrelevant at any least.

For the most part, it reads like a super quick little tale of a haunted hotel with grief-stricken teens and a few splashes of overly dramatic romance, and for me, it fell somewhere in the middle of terrific and terrible.
