Wow. What a compelling read. Sometimes difficult at times, but really good.

“Was it hard?" I ask.
Letting go?"

Not as hard as holding on to something that wasn't real.”
Lisa Schroeder

“When you meet someone so different from yourself, in a good way, you don't even have to kiss to have fireworks go off. It's like fireworks in your heart all the time. I always wondered, do opposites really attract? Now I know for sure they do. I'd grown up going to the library as often as most people go to the grocery store. Jackson didn't need to read about exciting people or places. He went out and found them, or created excitement himself if there wasn't any to be found. The things I like are pretty simple. Burning CDs around themes, like Songs to Get You Groove On and Tunes to Fix a Broken Heart; watching movies; baking cookies; and swimming. It's like I was a salad with a light vinaigrette, and Jackson was a platter of seafood Cajun pasta. Alone, we were good. Together, we were fantastic.”

Ghostly June Group Read!!!!!!

Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake



goodreads summary-Just your average boy-meets-girl, girl-kills-people story...

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.

So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father’s mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.

When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn’t expect anything outside of the ordinary: move, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he’s never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, but now stained red and dripping blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.

And she, for whatever reason, spares his life.

The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong



goodreads summary-Chloe Saunders sees dead people. Yes, like in the films. The problem is, in real life saying you see ghosts gets you a one-way ticket to the psych ward. And at 15, all Chloe wants to do is fit in at school and maybe get a boy to notice her. But when a particularly violent ghost haunts her, she gets noticed for all the wrong reasons. Her seemingly crazed behaviour earns her a trip to Lyle House, a centre for disturbed teens.

At first Chloe is determined to keep her head down. But then her room mate disappears after confessing she has a poltergeist, and some of the other patients also seem to be manifesting paranormal behaviour. Could that be a coincidence? Or is Lyle House not quite what it seems…? Chloe realizes that if she doesn’t uncover the truth, she could be destined for a lifetime in a psychiatric hospital. Or could her fate be even worse…? Can she trust her fellow students, and does she dare reveal her dark secret?

Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready



goodreads summary-Best. Birthday. Ever. At least, it was supposed to be. With Logan's band playing a critical gig and Aura's plans for an intimate after-party, Aura knows it will be the most memorable night of her boyfriend's life. She never thought it would be his last.

Logan's sudden death leaves Aura devastated. He's gone.

Well, sort of.

Like everyone born after the Shift, Aura can see and hear ghosts. This mysterious ability has always been annoying, and Aura had wanted nothing more than to figure out why the Shift happened so she can undo it. But not with Logan's violet-hued spirit still hanging around. Because dead Logan is almost as real as ever. Almost.

It doesn't help that Aura's new friend Zachary is so understanding--and so very alive. His support means more to Aura than she cares to admit.

As Aura's relationships with the dead and the living grow ever complicated, so do her feelings for Logan and Zachary. Each holds a piece of Aura's heart...and clues to the secret of the Shift

goodreads summary-In a single moment, everything changes. Seventeen-year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she finds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck...

A sophisticated, layered, and heart-achingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends, the choices we all make, and the ultimate choice Mia commands.

The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade



goodreads summary-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.

I’m the girl you hated in high school. Is it my fault I was born with it all-good looks, silky blond hair, a hot bod, and a keen sense of what everyone else should not be wearing? But my life isn’t perfect, especially since I died. Run over by a bus of band geeks—is there anything more humiliating? As it turns out, yes—watching your boyfriend and friends move on with life, only days after your funeral. And you wouldn’t believe what they’re saying about me now that they think I can’t hear them. To top it off, I’m starting to disappear, flickering in and out of existence. I don’t know where I go when I’m gone, but it’s not good. Where is that freaking white light already?

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.

I can see, hear, and touch the dead. Unfortunately, they can also see, hear and touch me. Yeah, because surviving high school isn’t hard enough already. I’ve done my best to hide my “gift.” After all, my dad, who shared my ability, killed himself because of it when I was fifteen. But lately, pretending to be normal has gotten a lot harder. A new ghost—an anonymous, seething cloud of negative energy with the capacity to throw me around—is pursuing me with a vengeance. My mom, who knows nothing about what I can do, is worrying about the increase in odd incidents, my shrink is tossing around terms like “temporary confinement for psychiatric evaluation,” and my principal, who thinks I’m a disruption and a faker, is searching for every way possible to get rid of me. How many weeks until graduation?

Hereafter by Tara Hudson


goodreads summary-Can there truly be love after death?

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.

Spiritus by Dana Michelle Burnett



goodeads summry-A love that refuses to die…

“As I watched him vanish into a soft mist that faded away, I knew that he was no ordinary spirit…I knew that he was a dangerous entity that could be in some corner of another realm planning his revenge, but I also knew that I was hopelessly in love with him.”

But things do change when Becca accidentally makes contact with a one hundred and sixty year old ghost, Alastor Sinclair, that haunts the halls of her new home.

To Becca, Alastor is a seductive spirit that seems to see straight into her soul. To Alastor, Becca is what he was waited a century for--A second chance.

But the closer they get, the more Becca realizes that this isn't the first time she and Alastor have known each other. Worse still, is she the one responsible for his death so long ago? And if so, did he come back for love or revenge?

See Me by Lauralynn Elliott



goodreads summary-When Maddi Drake inherits an old house from her great aunt, she decides to move in and fix it up. But it seems she isn't quite alone there. Then she meets the perfect man...so she thinks. But someone in the house disagrees.

This novella combines a little mystery, a little humor, and a little romance for a quick, entertaining read.

Excerpt:

Feeling frightened now, but knowing she had to see what was down there, she turned on the lights like she had done the night before and went cautiously down the stairs. The glow was coming from the parlor again. She walked in, only to find that the glow had disappeared as it had last night. She felt uneasy in the dark, but she didn’t turn on the light switch just yet. She waited in the dark to see if anything brushed against her like it did last night. She was scared, but she wanted to find out if it was her imagination or not. Then she felt it. Not anything brushing against her this time, but something almost like a soft breath on the back of her neck. She shivered. Her first impulse was to run for the light switch. But there was also a sense of curiosity that she couldn’t deny. She was frightened and fascinated at the same time. She waited there in the darkness for something else to happen. She felt it again, that slight stirring of air at her neck that felt like someone breathing lightly on her. Suddenly, she couldn’t stand it anymore. She rushed to the light switch and flipped it on, twirling around to look at the spot where she was standing. There was no one there. She hadn’t really expected to see anything or anybody. But she knew something had happened.

She started to turn and go out of the room, but she saw something out of the corner of her eye. She turned back and faced where she had been standing earlier. There on the floor was a scrap of paper. She knew it hadn’t been there before. She cautiously walked toward the paper, and then stooped to pick it up. There on the paper were two words. See me.

“The main thing is to WRITE. Some days it might be 2000 words. Some days you might tinker with two sentences until you get them just right. Both days belong in the writing life. Some days you may watch a ‘Doctor Who’ marathon or become immersed in a book that is so good you can’t stop reading. Some days you may be in love or in mourning. Those days belong in the writing life, too. Live them without guilt.”
L.K. Madigan

“I hate that everyone calls it growing up, but it seems like DYING.”

Daniel Hey I don't know if you would read this but I'm trying to get more readers for my blog. I'd appreciate it if you'd check it out. It's not necessarily on books. It has books but it also has other random things. stop by and show some support! :D

I will be sure to tell her! ^-^ She'll really appreciate it; she's in love with your writing. I'll have to buy more copies of your books and give them away as gifts; they seem to go over well within my clan of friends! :D

Well, you're very welcome, I guess. I'm actually kind of surprised that you responded to my little comment, so THANK YOU! ^-^ I love to write, (I mostly write poems and short stories) but after reading your book, I've started to write my own verse novel. It's not even near being done, but thank you for giving me the inspiration. ^-^ I appreciate it.

I have a thing for A and C names too, don't worry. In my stories, I have Audrey and Coryne, Cassie and Aria, Cestral and Ariana, Celeste and Aurelia, but my favourites of mine are Calliel and Anneleigh from a novel I'm writing called Come Find Me, and Celyn and Astara from a short story I wrote called Breathed Infinity, both of which are posted on my Booksie profile. I just love A & C names!!! They just go together so well!!!! ^-^

I can't wait for your next book, seriously. I have nothing to do but reread your previous books! Thank you so much for taking the time to reply; it means a lot to me. ^-^

Lisa Awww, will you tell your friend THANK YOU from me? Give her a big hug and tell her I love, love, LOVE that she gave you my books as a gift.

And thank YOU Courtney for reading and writing to me. I'm so glad you enjoyed them. I think you are REALLY going to like the next book, THE DAY BEFORE. :)

I don't know why, but I do have a thing for A names. And did you see in the next book, there is an Amber and a Cade?? Another A & C combination. WOW!!!

Courtney Wiche My friend gave me I Heart You, You Haunt Me and Far From You for Christmas because she said they were her favourite books ever, and I loved them! ^-^ I love the way it's written in verse. :P I just love it. I have this thing for sad stories with happy endings, and I can't wait for your next book! I'm so excited. :D

And this might be random, but I'm huge on character names and all, and I noticed that in both books, your main characters name starts with an A (Ava and Alice) and her best friends name starts with a C (Calli and Claire), and it kind of gave me chills, because my name is Courtney, and my best friends name is Anelise (but I call her Annie ^-^). It actually kind of made my day amazing. ^-^

I love your writing, and I hope you continue for many years! I love reading your books! :D

Lisa Ahhh, thanks so much Severa. I appreciate your kind words. :)


Severa Hello Lisa, I just finished "I heart you,you haunt me" And I have to tell you how beautiful it was. I loved it. I've been into the paranormal and ghosts all my life and this was just fantastic. It really hit me emotionally and I really enjoyed it. Thank you for writing it.
