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!

Book #1: The Ghost and the Goth (Ghost and the Goth Novels)
Book #2: Queen of the Dead (A Ghost and the Goth Novel)
Book #3: Body & Soul (A Ghost and the Goth Novel) (Ghost and the Goth Novels)-release date - May 1, 2012

  3. This series has been on my TBR forever (because of you). I need to just buy them when book three releases and read them back-to-back.
    Great pick!

    1. That's probably a good idea. There isn't necessarily a cliffhanger but it's been really hard waiting to find out what happens for a year. lol
      She literally left it so that almost any ending is possible.

    1. I have no clue! She wrote in a way that it could end several different ways. I'm biting my nails....

    1. YES! It's authorized, condoned - even encouraged - book bullying!

      I think you would like this series Smash. It's light and funny but with a lot of heart and character growth.

  11. I enjoyed the first book in the series (The Ghost and the Goth), so I was super excited when I found out there was going to be a sequel. The first book ends well as a standalone, but this second book relies enough on the events of the first that you shouldn't read the sequel until after you've read the first book.
