This Week:

Ashes to Ashes by Melissa Walker

Ashes to Ashes by Melissa Walker

Release Date: December 23, 2013
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books

If I Stay meets the movie Ghost in this first book in a teen duology about a teenage-girl-turned-ghost who must cling to the echoes of her former life to save the people she left behind.

When Callie’s life is cut short by a tragic accident, she expects to find nothingness, or maybe some version of heaven.

Instead, her spirit travels to the Prism, an ethereal plane populated by the ghosts she thought were fictional. Here she meets a striking and mysterious ghost named Thatcher, who is meant to guide her as she learns to haunt and bring peace to the loved ones she left behind.

However, Callie uncovers a dark secret about the spirit world: The angry souls who always populate ghost stories are real, dangerous, and willing to do whatever it takes to stay on Earth, threatening the existence of everyone she ever cared about.

As she fights to save them, Callie will learn that while it may no longer beat, her heart can still love-and break.

Why I’m Waiting
I have insane cover love for this book! The red dress is stunning. The sunset/sunrise is gorgeous and I love the little details like leaves on the dock. I just want to stare at this! I’m a huge paranormal fan and this book sounds completely right up my alley. A girl who dies, is now stuck in the afterlife and must watch over and haunt loved ones? How cool! And I’m dying (heh, see what I did there?) to know what these angry souls are threatening to do that will destroy Callie’s friends and family. This sounds like it’s going to be deep and thrilling and probably a bit heartbreaking, I can’t wait!!

What are you waiting on this week? Leave me links to your post 🙂
