Aren t ghosts supposed to have some sort of agenda I really hope mine isn t to haunt my boyfriend s bedroom That is way too clich d Why didn t you stay with your body he finally asks.I meet his eyes and the only thing I want to say is I came back to be with you, I stayed for you. Sure, you could compare this to The Lovely Bones, in the same way that you could compare Twilight to Bram Stoker s Dracula It s pretty much the same thing, really, with a few minor differences The few minor differences being 1 Red tunas Ok, fine, the technical term for a misleading clue ia a red herring but the clues in this book are so fucking obvious and dumb and loud that I ve coined a new term for it Hence, red tuna2 This ghost is even of a vapid idiot than the one in The Lovely Bones3 This ghost gets into one bloody painful mess of a love triangle between the most wonderfulest boyfriend ever who just doesn t geeeeeeeeeet her, maaaaaan and a pothead stoner with a heart of gold4 Family Lol Family Screw family, it s all about friends, y all She has a sister A brother A family Oh, yeah, yeah, she does She mentions them sometimes Mostly the fact that her mom is a huge, raging psychotic bitch5 The dumbest friends ever, in fact, the most vapid group of high schoolers who ever existed6 There is not a single trul
Started off fine, but got progressively convoluted and ethically messed up as the story went on Also SO annoying that a number of the characters also had nicknames and some of them had than one Sheesh. Update 12 25 14 My Last Kiss was chosen as one of Badass Book Reviews favorite Young Adult New Adult Romance books of 2014 Read all about it here.So I am wavering between 4 and 5 stars for this excellent debut novel by author Bethany Neal This is a cross between a ghost story and a murder mystery with a young adult slant It is a powerful story told from the point of view of the main character Cassidy who at 17 died The circumstances around her death are iffy the police think it was a suicide Cassidy comes back as a ghost and follows her circle of friends to try to remember what happened the night she died Poor Cassidy can t remember how she ended up dead and who was around her The only person able to see Cassidy s ghost was her boyfriend Ethan This being a ghost thing sucks If I don t figure out things soon, I m converting to poltergeist The cast of characters and suspects is large and it was kind of fun trying to piece together the clues as to who killed Cassidy I was joking with another reviewer that we needed a large whiteboard complete with photos of each character and a timeline in order to keep all the information straight Keep in mind, the story
This was a lot of fun, and a really inventive spin on the common murder mystery Really, really good stuff Think The Lovely Bones meets Pretty Little Liars Also, called the killer within the first 100 pages high fives self But still, holy intensity towards the end Review to come. A thrilling story of love and betrayal where a teenage girl must not only face her actions in her former life but discover which of her friends was her killer A bittersweet contemporary romance that had me in tears in the final pages. My Last Kiss is about Cassidy, a girl who died on the day of her seventeenth birthday party Cassidy is trapped in the living world, and only her boyfriend, Ethan, is able to see her Cassidy can t remember anything from the night she died, and to uncover the truth, Cassidy must relive the moments leading up to her death With the help of Ethan and Aimee, justice will be served.To be honest, I found the first few chapters of My Last Kiss annoying because of how whiny the main character is, and that is already considering her situation Also, it reminded me too much of The Catastrophic History of You and Me, but soon became it s own.What I love about this novel is that the mystery is really good It kept me guessing and guessing, and soon, I couldn t put the book down The suspects kept increasing and increasing, until you get to the end and find out the truth, and it was just really good It kept me on my toes because each time I feel sure that this certain person is the one at fault, something happens to contradict it.This book is contemporary, though it s not about the feels But there certainly was love and friendship in the form of Ethan and Aimee, who were determined and would do anything in their power to uncover the mystery surrounding Cassidy s death They are loyal friends, and Cassidy was very lucky to have them Ethan even kept some thing secret for the f
Believe it or not, I actually do hate writing negative reviews especially when a book has been kindly provided to me expressly for the purpose of writing said review.But I hate lying than I hate negativity, so here we go.Usually I start out with a lovely, flowy description of the plot However, I think I can sum that up in just one sentence So, here we go.A girl cheats on her boyfriend with a pothead, ends up dead, everyone thinks it s suicide, she thinks it was murder, she stays around as some kind of ghost figure and tries to solve her alleged murder, then tries to make out make up with her boyfriend too.That s it.So, why the one star Mostly, it s because I hate all of the characters Every single one of them.Let s start with the main character, Cassidy She s just not the brightest bulb in the lamp, if you catch my drift She s flighty, both in life and death, supposedly focusing on solving a murder, except she really spends time daydreaming about kissing her boyfriend and trying to find a way to get him back even though she s dead She s melodramatic, immature, and incredibly slow to catch on to every blatant hint thrown her way She s so unlikeable that I, as a reader, had a hard time trying to even CARE who killed her or why.Now, we can move on to Ethan, the boyfriend What is there to even say about him NOTHING He s unremarkable, boring, and unmemorable I
Bell, Book Candle My Last Kiss ReviewI swear, this should be a cautionary tale for those who cheat right beside Fatal Attraction This is another book I randomly came upon while up to no good with my friend in Barnes and Noble Don t ask don t tell I must ve skimmed the synopsis on back, because if I had realized how much of a tear jerker was I might not have bought it I hate in a good way books that make me cry.This was quite the emotional rollercoaster of a book I m not going to lie, I was in tears The mystery of Cassidy s, the protagonist, death was indeed puzzling As I have said before, I am very good at guessing how a book movie will end, but I didn t see that ending coming and I guessed at least 50 times I m not pulling you guys leg, either The mystery was off the charts, and there was a bit of suspense thrown in there as well The best and my most favorite part was drum roll the characters.I m a character driven person characters and how they are written or developed can make or break a book for me The depth and development of these characters was off the charts You will discover that there is than meets the eye and nothing is what it seems with each one of them I loved the flaws Cassidy had, in which you realize she is just as flawed as the rest of us And EthanOh my goodness, it was both endearing and heartbreaking seeing the conn
Brilliant Plot This is by far one of the most brilliant plots I have read in a long time It provided me something very different from the usual young adult novels which basically revolve around a couple and their love chronicles sometimes going too mushy or sometimes mixed and wrapped up with paranormal elements My last kiss is not devoid of romance, heartbreak and other essential young adult stuffs but what makes it interesting is the wicked plot line that just gets and intense as it proceeds and is a pure thriller addiction I love the way how the plot is developed and just when you think ok now I get it and make conclusions, it goes on to an entirely different track I m in love with the ending of this book in most cases by last pages, all the energy and elements are worn out, but in this case, the last couple of pages is where your brain gets put into action Things are moving at rapid speed and no it does not confuses you or something but for me, it was like being bombarded with surprise elements one after another and that made me shout out loud to t
Abandoned at 45% The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new. Samuel Beckett, MurphyThe book told on, having no alternative, the nothing new The exceptionally boring nothing new My First Kiss has been compared to The Lovely Bones, and I cannot express how ardently I agree with this statement Both are supremely slow and monotonous, the main character s voice doing nothing to remedy that, even in their phantom state For the first half of the book the only part I read Cassidy Haines, recently dead and spectral, tries not to remember all that she s forgotten about her life as a result of being dead killed or otherwise Because lo and behold, it appears she might have been faithful to her not a douchebag of a boyfriend I do not give turtle s fossilized crap Cassidy is seen by no one, heard by no one except of course the boyfriend she cheated on not that he knows And they make out, dance, fight, reveal trivial secrets, and discuss, in passing, her existentialism.The fish drank all my rat crap shakes.Cassidy whines She s dead so I ll give her that But she whines , and now the whines are subtle, sneaking up on you, like my arch nemesis, Waspssssss.Wasps don t give shits out just like that.Cassidy s best friend tries to solve her murder, figure out the i
