Body & Soul (The Ghost and the Goth #3)
I’ve been trapped in the body of Lily “Ally” Turner for a month now. Talk about a fashion crisis on an epic scale. What worries me more, though, is sometimes I catch Will looking at me like he thinks I’m Lily...or that he wishes I were. Without the good looks of my former self, I don’t know who I am, or if who that...more
A review of this book is posted on my blog!
Nevertheless, it took me awhi...more
Well look at that cover.
They are so HOT!
I didn't actually expect that this series would have a deeper story.
I was so happy when I finished the second book!
Now, I can't wait for the last one!
Well, this is the last one, right???
I just wonder how their story will end...
I mean I don't want Alona to stay in Lily's body FOREVER!
I also don't want Will to DIE!
Seriously! How can a person and a ghost be together forever???
God! I can't wait! Release the book!
I AM DYING HERE!
Will was HOTTER, Alona was HILARIOUS, the plot was back! I literally read this book in about 3 hours because I couldn't stop. I ate it up.
This series may look silly from the covers, but it is really so much fun! I read two and I was nervous that I'd hate the end of the book, but by the time I was done with Body & Soul I was hopi...more
As justifiable as it sounds, I DON'T WANT THIS SERIES TO END! I know how those other readers felt when say the same. BODY & SOUL isn't really the type of novel that you'd remember on a regular basis, but the series had absolutely grown into me. For me, reading the Ghost and the Goth series is like walking on a bright sunshiny day, metaphorically. There's something about this series that kept everything so subtle yet so cute at the same time. And clearly I have not made a mistake in getting t...more
I finally read Body & Soul by Stacey Kade, the third and last book from The Ghost and The Goth trilogy. And again, as I've said in my reviews of the first two books, Stacey is just awesome. The story takes off almost a month after the events that transpired in Queen of the Dead. The story's protagonists are Alona Dare and Will Killian.
Hmm. What can I say? I loved this series from the get-go and again just like the previous ones I finished rea...more
Final books in a series are always accompanied by such conflicting emotions, are they not? On the one hand, there’s excitement in the resolution, a satisfaction in a story well ended. On the other hand, it’s ended. Your brief glimpse, your privileged status of observer and confidante has been revoked, the characters to whom you’ve grown so attached moving on with their lives off-p...more
Oh. My. Freaking. God!
This was soooooooooooooooo good!
This book made my heart ache more than one time, which is an extremely good reaction from me. I felt these characters. They were so real, so there, so... just so. I cannot describe how sad I am to be saying goodbye to them, and can't wait to buy all the books.
And the ending! Oh, god. I knew it had to be something along these lines--I mean, they had to have a good ending....more
As usual, I loved the flirty banter that Will and Alona shared throughout the book. Their internal thoughts never really translated properly, leaving the both of them always wondering the status of their relationship. Alona has changed so much since the first book! Her progression in personality was a treat to read. I yearned for her an...more
Body & Soul is the third and final book in Stacey Kade's The Ghost and the Goth series. And honestly, it's probably my favorite book in the series. The Ghost and the Goth was incredible, just one of those books that catches you off guard with how awesome it is, and Body & Soul continued that tradition. Keeping me on my toes, wondering what was going to happen to Alona and Will in the end.
Will and Alona are the same as always. Bickering, fighting, av...more
WAAAAA! IT’S JUST ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS SERIES I’VE EVER READ!! AND IT’S ABOUT GHOSTS! And I just love it, amazing book, just awesomeness and amazing and incredible and God, can’t believe I’ve hadn’t sleep to finish this book.
What I like the most? OBVIOUSLY ALONA! I mean, she’s awesome and so smart and OMG I LOVE HER! I would love to have her as BFF.
And Will, jeezh, boy you took my hear...more
It's been a month over now since Will and Alona faced The Order. After making a split-second decision that seems to change everything and in order to save Lily Turner, Will's former best friend, Alona decided to inhabit Lily's comatose body and now she's been living as her for a month. Though the body is not that good as her original one, Alona faced another set of trials, she's miserab...more
WARNING: This review contains a lot of spoilers for the people that have not read this series. Check out my review of book one to see if you think it's worth a try! ;)
I just finished, and I’m too freaked out to write anything…
*a day later*
So, this was weird. I mean all through the book this was my face:
It was just so weird. Let me explain.
Alona is still stuck in Lily’s body, she and Will are trying to find out a way for Alona to...more
Il ne faudra pas chercher d'objectivité ici car je suis une fan d'Alona et Will depuis le début. J'ai craqué sur eux, et ne saurait dire lequel a ma préférence entre the ghost and the goth (elle avec son petit caractère bien trempé, et lui si mignon). ;)
Je suis triste de les quitter après seulement 3 volumes car le sujet aurait pu être exploité plus longuement sans lasser, mais j'accepte ce choix. Snif ! :'(
Bref, je n'ai pas été déçue par cette fin qui m'a réchauffé le cœur. M...more
The characters in this actually think about their actions, now to solve their own problems and whether their choices are morally right or wrong. There is growth from both of them, intentionally trying out different ways of behaving, seeing solutions that they can bring about.
This story takes off a few weeks after the last one. Without leaving spoilers for anyone who hasn't yet read the series, I'll just say there is romance (not over done and not the sole focus...more
Alona is your stereotypical cheerleader who learns that looks, money and popularity isn't everything. But Kade has a way of making her attitude and sass in a way that was charming. And Will has his angst moments and his dorky moments. In this book, I got mad at him a few times for being such a jerk.
But overall, a happy ending...more
Quick & Dirty: A good series conclusion filled with a surprisingly deep story of friendship and responsibility.
Opening Sentence: Malachi the Magnificent, Consultant to the Stars, had a storefront in a dingy, run down strip mall between a sketchy-looking Laundromat and a closed-up nail salon with a big, bright orange health department sticker plastered on its door.
Body & Soul is the third and final book in Stacey Kade’s The Ghost and the Goth...more
I think a part of me just made assumptions that weren't true. The covers are bright and cheerful, and the characters seem like stereotypes. But it only takes a few chapters in The Ghost and the Goth to find out that, no, Will and Alona aren't stereotypes, not really.
And from that point on, th...more
After borrowing a body in an attempt to communicate with her parents, Alona Dare ended up stuck in someone else's body. Alona must now pretend to be Lily Turner - a plain, unpopular girl that Alona had never noticed when she was alive. To make things more complicated, Alona's sort of boyfriend, Will, used to be friends with Lily and may have even been more had Lily not ended up in a coma after having a car accident. Will must help Alona out of Lily's body so she can move on....more
This was the end of the trilogy and it wraps up nicely. Things pick up a little while after the events of book 2 with Alona still stuck in Lily's body and she and Will trying to think of a way to get her out of it. That's not the only p...more
This is the last book in the "A Ghost and the Goth" series and I loved it! I had my own ideas of how the ending would end, since Alona were stuck in Lily's body and her outer appearance is not Alona's. How can you manage to keep Lily alive and Alona separated, and don't forget, Will and Alona like each other and don't want to be away from each other. What is the solution to this mess? Well, we readers got the answer a...more
Wallona como les dice Ana :) Will Killian me mata, me lo imagino, alto, delgado, musculoso, con ese cabello tan negro y esos ojos azules, tipo Logan Lerman, ohlala *o*
Será este el último? Eso parece, pero fue hermoso. Sufrí cuando se peleaban, y llore, llore cuando Will iba a las canchas de tenis, fue HORRIBLE...
No entiendo como Anka se aburrió por partes, OSEA QUE!?
Definitivamente tengo qe tener esta trilogía completa! ASAP!
"The final book in The Ghost and the Goth Trilogy!
The Ghost. I've been trapped in the body of Lily “Ally” Turner for a month now. Talk about a fashion crisis on an epic scale. What worries me more, though, is sometimes I catch Will looking at me like he thinks I'm Lily...or that he wishes I were. Without the good looks of my former self, I don't know who I am, or if who that is is good enough. I need out of this mess. Now.
Will and I have been looking for a solution, one that would separat...more
Alas, we shall start with the cover, since that's the way we roll. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how the covers of this series have the same models, the same theme, the same everything and I LOVE how the covers actually tie in with the story line. I could go on and on for ages about books that irk me bec...more
