Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming releases that we're anticipating.

Body and Soul (A Ghost and the Goth Novel book 3) by Stacey Kade
Publisher: Hyperion Book 
Release Date: May 29th, 2012 (Pre-order on Amazon!)

Wow! That cover is so perfect for Alona & Will. SO PERFECT. But what the heck does that mean??? So many possible options!! Eep! I can't wait to read Body & Soul, the final book in the Ghost and the Goth series.

This is one of my favorite series. It will surprise you I promise - it is as light as the covers imply - but it also has a depth to the characters & story that you aren't expecting.

Also, how many series get better with each book?? Not many - but this one does.

Oh yeah - a little about the book might be nice.

The Ghost
I’ve been trapped in the body of Lily “Ally” Turner for a month now. Talk about a fashion crisis on an epic scale. What worries me more, though, is sometimes I catch Will looking at me like he thinks I’m Lily...or that he wishes I were. Without the good looks of my former self, I don’t know who I am, or if who that is is good enough. I need out of this mess. Now.

Will and I have been looking for a solution, one that would separate me from Lily without killing her. But it’s not going well. Then, when it seems like things couldn’t get any worse, we run into Misty, my former best friend and boyfriend-stealer extraordinaire, who claims she’s being me. Seriously?

I’m determined to get to the bottom of who’s pretending to be the spirit of Alona Dare (while I’m pretending to be someone else) and then get the heck out of this body. Or die trying...

The Goth
I’ll admit it. It’s really weird to look at Alona but see Lily. I do know the difference, though, contrary to what Alona might be saying. And Alona is more than a pretty face to me, not that she would believe that.

Our one lead for some help in this messed up situation might be a page torn from the yellow pages-—the “Psychics” section-—I found in my dad’s stuff. One of the “fakes” seems a bit more real-—and odd-—than the others. Before I can investigate further, though, Alona is off and chasing a ghost that’s probably nothing more than a figment of Misty’s guilty imagination. Now Lily’s family is freaking out because she didn’t come home, my mom is ordering me to stay out of it, and something is definitely wrong with the person formerly known as Lily “Ally” Turner...

  3. I just read the Ghost and the Goth, I picked it up on a whim and really didnt expect much from it. I have to say I LOVED IT and went out and bought Queen of the Dead right away. I cant wait to get started on it, and I look forward to this one also!

  4. I reeeally want to read this, especially with that wild plot movement at the end of book two. I hope it's awesome!

  5. Aw, don't sell me on another series! This sounds good - I guess if there's a plus for me, it's that I can just zoom right through from the first book to the end without waiting. ;)

    My WoW this week

  6. I do wonder how these two can get a happy

  7. I've seen your reviews of these books & want to read them so bad. My poor TBR pile! I really need to get on this. Thanks for sharing!

  8. I can't wait!!! The cover is awesome!!! Here is my WOW

  9. I'm excited to see what happens next too. The ending of the last one left Will and Alona in an interesting predicament...

  10. So excited about this one, but heart-broken it's the last. There's are seriously underrated books!
