    1. 4.5 “Neverland” Stars!The Ghost of Buxton Manor by Jonathan L. Ferrara is a stand-alone, YA LGBT paranormal. This tale is loosely based around Rupert Buxton and Michael Davies, the historical figures that are the inspiration behind Peter Pan. I didn’t really know what to expect when I ventured into this book. I love paranormal fiction; however, it has been quite some time since I have read young adult. As with any book you pick up, you never know if you are going to go down the road of the [...]


    2. NOW LIVE ON !I am very excited for you guys to read it! CLICK HERE to purchase from/leave a review on .----“Always in our Neverland.”Release Date: October 12, 2016ARC kindly provided by author in exchange for an honest reviewWe all know that story: a ghost haunting a mansion; a lost soul seeking revenge for his death. This kind of tale has been handed down to us from one generation to the next. It is has been very familiar to each one of us like our very own reflection in the mirror. But no [...]


    3. "All the best fiction, they all stem from somewhere. Some might say they’re just the outcome of a wild imagination, but what is imagination? Does it not come from somewhere? Perhaps from somewhere in our souls….who knows?"Every once in a while, you read a book that just sticks out from the crowd. This was that book. Thanks to Chesca for the recommendation. :)I ordered this book a few days before I finally got to read it, and I'm not going to lie and say I didn't stare at it every time I walk [...]


    4. Dnf 60%. Incredibly boring and a tad bit uneventful. I was not a fan of the writing style. It took place from the ghost's perspective and it was very conversational, similar to the writing style in far far away. The plot was non existent. A ghost lived in a house for hundreds of years with no memory and then a family moves in and there is insta love with the boy and the ghost. At 60% nothing was happening. I did not feel attached to any of the characters. Such a disappointment and utter failure. [...]


    5. The Ghost of Buxton ManorBy Jonathan L. FerraraSelf-published, 2016Cover by Aaron Ferrara400 pagesThree starsWhat if you met the love of your life – but you were already dead?Inspired by the true story of the tragic (and mysterious) death of two young lovers in 1917, “The Ghost of Buxton Manor” forges a fantastic new path in the world of YA/LGBT fiction with an epic love story written through the eyes of a century-old ghost – Rupert Buxton. I’ve never read a ghost story written in the [...]


    6. *I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*I'm fairly certain many of you will just be thoroughly confused if I start the review by saying that this story is "something else". Unfortunately, that's the most accurate description I can conjure to make it justice. The Ghost of Buxton Manor is, for me, a story about life. Let me explain myself before people start thinking I've gone mad, or that I seriously lack reading comp skills. Okay, maybe not about life itself, b [...]


    7. 4 starsYA paranormal with an m/m love story. I loved the tie-in to Peter Pan, the eerie feel of Buxton Hall and the love stories that wind their way through. This was a full-on paranormal with a number of ghosts and some reincarnation too. I read mostly for the romance and the main love story was very sweet, but beware there may be some tears along the way. This was not quite a 5 star read mainly because I felt it may have needed a little more editing/beta-reading (view spoiler)[There were a few [...]


    8. ✿Thanks to Jonathan for providing an advance copy of this book in exchange for a honest review✿I absolutely ADORED this bookIt has a unique and enthralling story, lovable characters and is full of magic and mystery, what more could you need?a heart-wrenching love story, you ask? it's thereplot twists that might leave you completely flabbergasted? check great writing?aye!interesting historical background? HOLY CATS YESAccording to a website that provides tips about writing reviews, I should a [...]


    9. Disclaimer: I recieved an e-copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.An amnesic ghost is stuck in a gigantic villa with no idea how he died, why he died or what he is trying to achieve by staying on earth. All he can do to deal with his boredom is read the libraries books as they are the only thing he can touch. That isn't that big of a problem until a family moves into the house. Now Rupert, the ghost, has to figure all these questions out to finally remember his life.He [...]


    10. *I was privileged enough to receive an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book was INSANE. From the moment I read the description of this creation I was sold. I mean, a paranormal romance about two boys (of which one is ghost) uncovering some wicked mystery? You got me there. You can say I was excited about this book before I’d even seen the cover (and the cover looks stunning). So excited that I put down the novel I was currently reading, dove right in and finished it on [...]


    11. 4.0 of 5 stars – Sweet YA Romance With a Good Dose of Paranormal.[Thanks to the author for a free copy via ' YA LGBT group in exchange for an honest review]I love various gay genres, including YA romance, paranormal and historical, and this turned out to be a refreshing mix of all that as well as one of the better YAs I’ve read in a while.This was a sweet story, definitely a feel-good romance. It was effectively told in the first-person POV of the ghost, Rupert, which made it enjoyable disco [...]


    12. I don't normally do book reviews but I loved this book so much that I felt I had too. I know the author from his youtube channel and bought the book the support him. Not really a huge fan of paranormal books I wasn't sure what to expect. But from the first chapter this book had me hooked and I read the whole thing in a few days. I know I'm reading something special when I can't stop thinking about the characters and even now, a few days later, I am still thinking about them. I am very partial to [...]


    13. « Rupert, he was a boy, the epitome of the lost…and Michael, he found him. » Ce livre était juste magnifique, purement et simplement magnifique. Unique et incroyable. Et j'ai quelque part le sentiment que ce livre est précieux, que sa profondeur et sa justesse sont quelque chose qu'il faut préserver à tout prix. Je ne m'attendais pas à grand chose en commençant ce livre, certes le résumé paraissait vraiment intriguant et offrait la promesse d'un livre unique, mais j'étais assez r [...]


    14. *review of a received advanced copy*I’m going to start off by saying that The Ghost of Buxton Manor is the perfect example of how to take a Young Adult ghost story to the next level. The Ghost of Buxton Manor starts off by being the story of a teenager boy who has been dead for quite some time, stuck inside a big, big house without being able to remember how and why he died. This ghost can’t do much of anything, really, can’t touch most things, can’t smell, can’t even see everything ou [...]


    15. Review also available on my blog The Shameful Narcissist Speaks.This novel is an utter delight. It's based on real historical figures, Rupert Buxton and Michael Davies, the latter whom inspired J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan. Rupert Buxton has haunted the mansion that was once his family estate for nigh on a hundred years. He neither knows the cause of his death nor why he's forced to linger in limbo as the shade of a 17 year old youth.Three events throw Rupert's afterlife topsy-turvy. The appearance [...]


    16. . : ☾⋆ — 5 ★beautiful.i can’t think of a different word to describe this book. magical, perhaps. i don’t know, but this book is definitely Something Else. it left me feeling hopeful and happy and satisfied, and i can’t stop thinking about it. the fact that it’s based around two historical figures who actually existed and were actually lovers and that the author, Jonathan L. Ferrara, introduced parts of himself and his real life husband in these characters takes this book to an en [...]


    17. Wow. Just WowNormally ghost stories are not really my thing. But this YA LGBT story is extraordinary. It has everything. Suspense, fantasy, history, and most of all LOVE. The story held me in its clutches from beginning to end. Its warmth, sometimes funny, always endearing. Just READ it for yourself :)


    18. The Ghost of Buxton Manor - история двух родственных душ, которые не смогла разлучить даже смерть, рассказанная от лица приведения. Очень понравилось__________________________________Я уже два дня зависаю на youtube канале автора и его мужа, чувствую себя поехавшей фанаткой, но, блин, они такие лапочки!


    19. ***Many thanks to the author, Jonathon L. Ferrara, for very kindly gifting me a free copy for advance review***Paranormal mystery. Bitter-sweet romance. More than enough going on to keep those pages a-turning. I enjoyed this story a great deal. Didn’t even much mind the aspect of insta-love.It’s a story set in Britain, narrated by an almost-century old ghost, who in life was a young and privileged English gent. He’s been trapped in his family home, completely isolated, since his death in 1 [...]


    20. *4.5 STARS*THIS WAS AMAZING!!!! Honestly I read this so fast and I'm a lil sad about it :-( Anyway, everything in this book was so great, the characters, the story, how it was inspired by Peter Pan and the story behind it. It was amazing. The romance was so cutee and refreshing. The story which is paranormal, bc we have ghosts was super interesting and cool! I need another book like this.


    21. ****An advance reading copy of The Ghost of Buxton Manor by Jonathan L. Ferrera was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest reviewOMG, the story is Amazing. Its just *speechless*. I'm so ashamed it took me long to finish it(sorry, busy). but i swear once i started reading it, I was under a spell that keeps pulling me to the book. The story is about a ghost in Buxton Manor whose loneliness(an awful 100 years) is finally broken by a new family moving into the house. And he is attracted [...]


    22. Giving this only 3 stars hurts a bit, because this book had a lot of things I liked, but here is the thing: Your idea can be great, your characters can be charming and your love story can be sweet, but if there are too many logic holes (easily fixed ones!) and your characters start to become really dumb because they're clearly not at the point of the plot where they're supposed to find things out, maybe you should go over your story again. Cause I think this one had way more potential than it sh [...]


    23. *I was honoured enough to receive an eARC in exchange for a honest review.*First I want to thank Jonathan for allowing me to read his amazing story. I absolutely loved it. I was already sold after having read the description. Mystery, YA LGBT combined with a paranormal romance? I’m in. It's definitely not the average YA LGBT book, but the exact contrary. Next to that, the way it’s based on true historical events completely got me (yes, it’s true). Besides, the cover is absolutely beautiful [...]


    24. Deciding to read this book was such a good decision. This sort-of-not-really historical fiction ya novel is a (very) loose telling of the story of Rupert Buxton and Michael Davies (nephew to Peter Pan author, J.M Barrie) and their mysterious death. Now, this book is honestly rather absurd. And I loved it because of that. This plot, as absurd as it may be, was so delicious and invigorating and such a brilliant idea. Were some parts predictable? Absolutely. Do I care? Absolutely not. This is an am [...]


    25. I was engrossed in this marvelous book. It is a mystery, a type of fantasy, a love story, and a breath of hope. Written in a very sensitive manner, the story is told by the ghost of a teen long dead and unable to remember his life time until a new family takes residence and a series of others from beyond help him to remember and cope with same startling revelations. Unforgettable in a very good way.No spoilers, and the publisher's blurb is something of a distorted mess. Thanks to LibraryThing Gi [...]


    26. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.This was a wonderfully emotional book and I loved it. I can count on one hand the amount of times a book has made me cry - and The Ghost of Buxton Manor has now been added to that list! I'm not saying if the tears were happy and/or sad - you'll have to read it yourself - but this book was utterly captivating. I fell in love with Rupert and Aaron and wanted more of their story. Highly recommended! 4.5/5


    27. god, this is both exhilarating and fun ride of a book. i tell you, i love rupert and michael/aaron. and the way they can't seem to get enough of each otherabe, so much love.


    28. 3.5 stars - Really lovely story, bit more of a tearjerker than I'd been expecting (though given the subject matter, I probably shouldn't have been surprised). I really liked Rupert and Aaron and their feel-good romance; normally I'm not into insta-love, but it worked for me here for reasons that are spoilery. The supporting cast were also quite enjoyable. The main issue I had was that this book really needed to go through another round of editing. E.g. on one page Rupert refers to a car as a str [...]



    29. this book is written by one of my fav m/m couple in youtube: HusbandAndHusband // i'm so excited to read this soon!
