This week, I've chosen...
Hereafter by Tara Hudson
Release Date: June 7, 2011
Can there truly be love after death?I haven't read a lot of ghost stories, at all. It's not because I don't like them - the opportunity has just never presented itself. Hereafter looks like a really interesting story and I've already read many positive reviews. Plus, that cover is just gorgeous. I love the combination of blue and yellow and how they made Amelia's body look.
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.
What are you waiting on this very sunny Wednesday?
