Must Read Monday–The Ghost and the Goth trilogy by Stacey Kade
Must Read Monday is a meme hosted by Jen from What's on the Bookshelf to showcase a book or series (old or new) that we recommend.
This week my choice is the Ghost and the Goth trilogy by Stacey Kade.
The covers give off a lighthearted vibe. It is snarky funny but this series is also full of wonderful character development and deep emotions along with several action packed plot twists. Do not judge this series by their covers – although once you read it you’ll see how perfect they are!
From Ghost & the Goth - Book #1:
“Alona Dare–Senior in high school, co-captain of the cheerleading squad, Homecoming Queen three years in a row, voted most likely to marry a movie star…and newly dead.
Will Killian–Senior in high school, outcast, dubbed “Will Kill” by the popular crowd for the unearthly aura around him, voted most likely to rob a bank…and a ghost-talker.” ~Source: Stacey Kade's blog
Alona and Will’s relationship is so beautifully written as it grows and changes throughout the series. Starting out with barely tolerating each other in Ghost and the Goth to a deep friendship and possible romance in Queen of the Dead. I <3 both of these characters so much.
Book two, Queen of the Dead, is even better than Ghost and the Goth in my opinion. A rare occurrence.
Book three – Body & Soul releases from Hyperion books on May1, 2012. That cover both warms my heart and scares the crap out of me. This series could end a lot of different ways.
Everyone should give this series a shot. It’s a good one!
