A Book Review: The Kings of Charleston

When I think of Charleston, so many memories come to mind. As a child, I spent every summer visiting my grandfather and enjoying the sights and sounds of the city. 

So, when I saw a combination of some of my favorite things in literary form: I was intrigued. 

Casper Whitley is just a teenage girl who wants to ride horses. 

or to become part of this mystery society, Kythera. She definitely didn't plan on meeting Cal, this handsome rich playboy who has taken an interest in her. Now that she's here in Charleston, will she get to keep 
her family's horses? Will she get her old life back? 
There's no turning back now and if she wants out, she's going to have to fight for it. 

The Kings of Charleston kept my interest and it was a good read. It has a great southern setting, which I love and adds more interest, in my opinion. It offers romance (PG version), mystery (Who is Kythera?), and a thrill (What will happen to Casper and her family?).  
I went straight for the second book- All The Kings Men - hoping to get more answers about Kythera, but was met with more questions when a new secret society was introduced. 

You're killing me Kat! 

I'm a lover of some good YA novels. If you have any specific questions- please feel free to ask. I could keep going about many of the books I read. Please check out my bookshelf. by Shelfari:) I don't have as much free time now that I'm in the classroom full-time (not complaining!). There are so many good books out there and I'd love to start reviewing more! It's on my list!
