Before I Wake (Soul Screamers #6)
The good news? He didn't get it.
The bad news? Turns out not even death will get you out of high school…
Covering up her own murder was one thing, but faking life is much harder than Kaylee Cavanaugh expected. After weeks spent "recovering," she's back in school, fighting to stay visible to the human world,...more
I only have notes and favorite quotes for chapters 1-4 but I'll add more soon!
Fave quotes and thoughts for each chapter.
"So don't. Come hang out with me at work." Tod dropped back into my desk chair and swiveled to face me while I knelt to grab my sneakers from beneath my bed. "We can play naughty dress up with the hospital gowns and rearrange the supply closets."
I WANT TO PLAY!!!
"You'll be the o...more
OMG!!!!! can I give a triple 5 star on this book?!?!!! It IS THE BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!! I love it and I love th ebanter that goes on between the two HUdsons and not forgetting Sabine...that girl is catching on me. I mean I use to really 'don't like' her but she is growing on me. I'm beggining to see her beauty in this series.
I LOVE that there are TOD and KAYLEE everywhere in this series. TLuca, our new addition is not bad himself, he is making Sofie look tol...more
Okay, let me say it like that. If you took the last five movies I watched and look at the cast, then this was the love-child of Tom Hiddleston and Michael Fassbender. DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I AM SAYING?
Just a few moments ago I was still begging to get the book just a few. seconds. earlier.
And now I have actually read it, and can't believe everything that has happened, and want to cry and laugh and everything, and damn this!
1. It's about bean sidhes (pronounced banshees). I mean, what other series can use girls screaming for death in the most amazing way possible? Not one that I know!
2. You want to scream, and cry, and hug the book AND Rachel Vincent for writing it! Reading this series is like going on a never-ending emotional roller coaster — and I mean that in the BEST possible way!
3. The author isn't afraid to put her characters through hell and back. I'm...more
After being killed, Kaylee Cavanaugh is trying to live life like nothing's happened. But lots of things have happened since the day she was killed. After being recruited to find souls, Kaylee's time alone with her Reaper boyfriend has become increasing short. With all her friends and family endange...more
- Team Tod ALL THE WAY!!
- The jokes are the funniest things ever - especially Tod's. Who knew reaper's had such a spot-on sense of humour, hmm?!
- Suspenseful and heartache. The deaths are horrible and you just want to kick the bad guys where it hurts.
- Kaylee is a HAB (heroine with a backbone) and should be applauded on her courage and inner strength
- Tod is so hot! :D
- Repeat the above
Before I wake is set one month after the events of If I Die. We find that Kaylee's 'life' is still as complicated as ever. Kaylee's adjusting to her new undead life, her new job, her new boyfriend and her newfound popularity. Kaylee's first day back at school starts with a bang when her new boss orders her to retrieve a soul stolen by a rougue reaper. Kaylee is shocked to find that the rougue reaper is Thane - who Tod left in the Netherworld to be tortured by Avari after he t...more
This book was amazing!!!! I was riveted by this book every single second that I read. Not much more to say than that!!
Oh... wait - there is something else to say...
“Mr. Cavanaugh, I know this isn’t the future you wanted for Kaylee, and I know I’m not who you wanted for her. And I’m not even going to pretend to think I’m good enough – I know I’ve made mistakes, and I’m probably going to make more. But I love her with every single cell in my body. She's the reason my heart beats – literal...more
Immortality, however, wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Sure, she could make herself invisible when she wanted to hang out with her boyfriend. No, she didn’t have to sleep. No, she didn’t have to eat unless she wanted to. No, she wouldn’t age. And no, she didn’t actually h...more
This book.... this book is insane. And I absolutely loved every second of it. ♥
Plus, Tod is awesome.
If I Die rocked my freaking socks off.
I need more
Dear Rachel Vincent,
I'm sorry I doubted your brilliance and began to lose faith in Soul Screamers. I didn't know! Holy hot paranormal hell, I didn't know! I should have trusted you. I tried to put a time frame on kickassness and almost missed this! Your last two books in this series have been OM-WOW!! My almost "disloyalty" d...more

This is a moment where I literally don't have the accurate words to explain the emotions and feelings moving around in my head. As all of us already know, this series does nothing but surprise, shock, and amaze us...more
**Warning: I don't think I could review this without any spoilers from the first 5 books in the series so only read if you've read up to IID**
So after If I Die, I had no idea what was going to happen. There were so many plot...more
Regular readers of my reviews will know that I fell in love with this series once I read the third book, My Soul to Keep; despite the first two books being really enjoyable, they didn't completely wow me. But then I picked up My Soul to Keep and was blown away. With each new release, Rachel Vincent has pushed the limits of what it means to be blown away, and the same goes for Before I Wake. Wow... It's absolutely incredible.
Kaylee is now an undead extrac...more
This book out of the whole series defiantly had me crying the most! Sometimes happy sometimes really sad. But I will say this is my favorite out of the whole series and this is why:
Through out the whole series since the beginning in typical YA style I thought Nash and Kaylee were going to be together "forever" yes they wo...more
OMG amazing I am so in love with this series Tod is one of the best characters I have ever come across he's funny and sweet and smart and i...more
And the interview that I just read (from Rachel Vincent) says that
'Today I turned in copy edits for Before I Wake, so it’s one step closer to being a real book. You guys are going to hate me for the ending. BAD THINGS happen, and no one’s safe. Both my editor and my copy editor left comments full of exclamation marks at the climax. I think they were traumatized. That’s only the second time in fourteen books that I’ve gotten story specific comments from a copy editor, so...more
It has become incredibly more difficult with each book to review it without spoiling too much about the previous ones, but if I had to make one comm...more
This book's not going to be released for about 3 more months.
I want to cry, lol. For me, 3 months seems like forever. Just the thought of having to wait 3 months for it to be released is driving me crazy. I need more Tod and Kaylee goodness.. Seriously.
I'm inlove with this series. The last book almost gave me a heart attack (all because of all those Tod and Kaylee scenes). XD
Anywaaaay, I heard there's going to be a LOT of kissing in this one -ho...more
