Why hello there fellow readers! Saba here with an awesome book review. It's definitely been a long time since I've read an amazing book, so you could imagine my surprise when I picked up the book Hereafter by Tara Hudson and was thoroughly pleased. I loved this book. It was sooo good! And here's the review before I start ranting about how much I loved this book:
Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.
Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long. But even while they struggle to keep their bond hidden from the living world, a frightening spirit named Eli is doing everything in his power to destroy their newfound happiness and drag Amelia back into the ghost world . . . forever.
Thrilling and evocative, with moments of pure pleasure, Hereafter is a sensation you won't want to miss.
 I was a little hesitant about picking this book up at first. The summary wasn't very exciting to me and I really wasn't in the mood for another disappointing book. But I was very surprised when I opened up the first page and was sucked in a wonderful new world. First, there was Amelia, who was a very great and real character. I could feel her pain and sorrow throughout the whole book and was one of the few times I felt the main character wasn't complaining and definitely wasn't stupid in figuring things out. And then there was Joshua, aside from Tucker from Unearthly and Alex from Delirium and probably a lot of other books I've read, Joshua was one of the most ammaaazzinggg characters I've ever read about. He was sooo nice to Amelia and so purely awesome that I was actually sad when the book ended and I realized there would be no more of him. Other than the amazing characters, this book had it all. The suspense, the twists, the drama, the humor, the romance, shall I go on? It was one of the few books where I found myself holding on to the edge of my chair and found my heart beating when things went wrong in the book. Joshua and Amelia's relationship was so strong that when I thought something bad was gonna happen I was silently screaming, no no no! I that probably sounds really cheesy, but it's really hard not to fall in love with this book. I hope that I've convinced you guys to read this book now, because it's surely a book not to be missed!!!

Dead is Not an Option

Oh my goodness, it has been SUCH a long time since I've blogged!!! So sorry guys!!! I will try to get on more often, I hope you guys haven't deserted me! So here I am, officially a high schooler. I pretty much love it, even though there's a lot of stress involved. But it's worth it, I love school spirit and football games and stuff. Anyways... Here's my review for Dead is Not an Option #5 in the Dead Is series!
It’s springtime of senior year, and psychic sleuth Daisy Giordano is preparing to say goodbye to Nightshade High. But no college acceptance letters have arrived yet, and she’s beginning to worry about where she’ll end up come fall—and if it will be anywhere near her boyfriend, Ryan. But that’s not the only uncertainty Daisy’s dealing with. There’s a vamps-versus-shifters war going on in Nightshade, and things are so tense that there is talk of canceling the prom. The conflict is carrying over to the Giordano home, since Rose and Daisy are both dating werewolves and Poppy’s new boyfriend is a vampire.

Can the paranormal community in Nightshade finally find peace? And will Daisy and her friends survive graduation? All of these questions and more are answered in the latest explosive installment in the Dead Is series.

This book was definitely my favorite of the series. A lot of my itching questions were answered and there was a lot of events going on that made the book interesting. I loved how this time, I didn't exactly know the ending of the book, I mean I kinda did still, but there was a lot more surprises than I had expected. Daisy was kind of naive at times. The answer was right in front of her and she didn't know it, it got kinda annoying. Other than that, Daisy was hilarious as always, and clever of course. I thought this book was a lot more action packed and mysterious than the previous books. There was a lot of things going on at once, but it just made the book better. I loved how every once in a while things were just calm and you got to get away from all the books problems and just relax. But I also loved how things would go wrong in the worst of places, it kept the book very interesting. Ryan and Daisy were extremely cute, just as ever, and Daisy's relationship with her best friend, Samantha, was just as funny as ever. I have to say, I enjoyed this book a lot. And there was definitely a jaw dropper at the end. Beware, a few tears might be shed, too. Overall, this book has it all. The action, drama, comedy, everything! If you're not sure about reading the Dead Is series, I hope you change your mind!
