Lori - Ghosts are still one paranormal creature I like. For suggestions, the Shade series by Jeri Smith Ready! I know you don’t read a lot of paranormal, but they are so good. I can recommend them without any hesitation. Oh and The Diviners!

Anyway, this one sounds like fun. I didn’t even know what this one was about until now. I’m intrigued. 🙂

Kate - As for suggestions about ghosts, I enjoyed Anna Dressed in Blood (can’t remember the author’s name offhand – picked it up from the library on a whim). Sounds like a very different tone than this one, but also a male narrator, which I found refreshing too! I’ll have to check the library for this one; sounds fun!

Vivian - I loved this book. So light & funny. It was hilarious watching Jeff slowly realize that Kim is actually a ghost. I loved Jeff and I agree, their banter was the highlight of the book. Great review!

Alexa Y. - This sounds like SO MUCH FUN! I don’t read very many ghost stories, so I can’t help you there. But I will say that your review definitely has me wanting to check this one out! I like reading from a male POV at times, and the story of this one sounds pretty quirky.

Princess Ash @ Paranormal Indulgence - I think my main concern was that the story would feel thin on account of the male perspective not being fully fleshed out, including his interactions with his friends and romance. But I like the idea of a bitchy, selfish ghost and a practical non-believer MC. I’m planning on reading this one next week!

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Hmmm very interesting!
“BOO AM I” HAHAHA. Oh, I love it.
I kind of like that he didn’t buy into the whole ghost thing right away! Thank goodness.
Hmmm, borrow it, you say? I feel like this one may be a book for me, but hard to tell so far. I guess I’ll just have to try it 😀

Bookworm1858 - Ghosts are my favorite paranormal creatures! Some of my favorite recent stories are Absent by Katie Williams and Hereafter by Tara Hudson, though both are more serious than this one.

Magan + Estelle’s Shelve It >> 3/3/2013

Hi friends! We’re here together this week (but not really together, sigh) for Shelve It, sharing some of the latest books that have popped up at our post office or in our inboxes. It’s kind of a quiet week since Estelle is still on her “book buying ban” so we thought this was the best […]

Magan - Aww, thanks Kelly! You’re too sweet!

And yes — YOU MUST MUST MUST read Eleanor and Park. Did I say you must? 😉

Alexa Y. - I love the hedgehog measuring cups! I probably would display them instead of using them, because they’re too cute!

Also, awesome book hauls girls! Eleanor & Park is probably my favorite thing that you both got this week 😉

Kelly - I keep forgetting you guys had your blog re-done and every time I pop by, I find myself just staring at how PRETTY it is!

Anyways, love those hedgehogs; they’re too adorable!

And apparently I need to get a copy of Eleanor and Park? Lol

March 3, 2013 - 11:13 am

Tara - I MUST read Eleanor & Park, like, yesterday. And how cute are those hedgehogs?!

March 3, 2013 - 10:27 am

Bookworm1858 - I love those hedgehogs-so cute! I have a huge stack of books to go through but I still am really tempted to run out and get Attachments after loving Eleanor and Park so much.

Annette - Eleanor & Park sounds so good. I don’t have it yet, but I will! I do have Severed Heads, and I think it sounds good. Hope you enjoy!My STS
