This is definitely what I'd like to call a "guilty pleasure" book. It's sweet, campy, cliched, fun and totally adorable. The artwork is gorgeous, and even though the writing style is flippant to the point of hollow, the various quotations and insights scattered between chapters inject a hit of surprising poignancy into the narrative. I love the Gothic-Lite concept; it's Mean Girls meets Edgar Allan Poe, and it's just so cute.

But, ngl, I'd have rated this book higher if I didn't loathe Scarlet so

I keep going 'awwww' with these books. We get to see Charlotte and the gang again, all going back to Hawthorn to help their 'assigned project' with personal matters. It would seem that Charlotte will never get rid of her High School at this rate, but I don't care. She gets assigned Damen, while her supposed boyfriend in the Other World gets assigned Scarlet. This was nice because you'd always expect Charlotte and Scarlet to be together, and it's nice seeing Charlotte being around Damen without b ...more

There are two more books in this series, however, I didn't buy them, and I can confidently say that I won't be reading them.

This third installment follows the same cast of characters in the lead up to prom, and like the first two, is full of issues. The characters and story are underdeveloped and over-simplified, with realizations and changes of heart being fully realized within an instant, rather than over a period of time.

There are a huge number of issues with the details as well; a high scho

This was a really good book. I was skeptical at first though because I bought it for $3.97 at Wal-Mart, but it turned out to be a really good book. It was a little confusing at first, but then it got better. I loved the characters and in a strange way thought I could relate to all of them. Even though I am way past a high school love relationship, I felt as though I could relate to alot of what the characters were going through in my adult relationship. I also loved what the story was about and ...more

I do not even know where to begin with this book! It completely blew my mind. It was even better then I expected it to be in all honesty. This is the third book in a very recent series by Tonya Hurley called “ghostgirl”. I have read the first and second one and the format for the book has not changed which makes me very ecstatic. The format is a hard cover book with sliver trimmed pages, contains a silhouette of Charlotte Usher on the cover, and in the beginning of every chapter. Another the th ...more

"We all fall down. They call it falling for someone for a reason. ...Either way, you will carry the reminder of it forever. Whether it leaves a tiny scar or a permanent injury, only the future can tell."

Tonya Hurley had successfully (again) written a philosophical love story that all we non Dead-Ed kids that we can relate with!

Ghostgirl Charlotte is back, this time enjoying her new (after)life with a boyfriend on her arm and a task she has to complete.

She must go back to Hawthorne and help one of her ex-fellow classmates with their problem, before the prom. Of course, for Charlotte it already gets complicated when her boyfriend, Eric, gets assigned to her best friend, Scarlett, whose boyfriend, Damen, is assigned to Charlotte. Confusing? Yes!

I won Ghostgirl: Lovesick on Goodreads Giveaway. I am so happy to say that Ghostgirl: Lovesick is SO MUCH FUN. First of all, it is number three in a series, which means I'm going to have to go out and buy the first two books. I want to find out how the series began.

The premise is something completey different than the usual Young Adult book. Tonya Hurley touches on a subject that all teenagers feel at one time or another; feeling invisible. However, she approaches the subject in a very unexpect

This is definitely a book I won't have to think twice about curling up with on cold, rainy evenings. Aside from the relatable quotes that can be located at the start of every chapter, the romance is sweet and savvy; just the kind that'll automatically cheer you up when the blues come.

The first few chapters were boring but the rest of the book picked up pace and created an ending that was nothing short of magical. (It was cheesy and expected - well, except for Petula's adorable love story - but I

Of the three ghostgirl books, this has the most depth and character development. I'm amazed I got this far because I don't finish most of the series I start. It was so worth it though.

I never liked Charlotte but there were enough supporting characters to take up her spotlight that she had more of in the last two books. For me, this was about Scarlett, Eric, Damen, and their music. If the whole book was told from her POV, I would have taken a couple of months to finish this.

Memento Mori.
Some people live their lives as if each day will be their last. Some approach love the same way, in a desperate attempt to outrun the tiny changes or huge ones that are always looming on each of our horizons. But the sense of urgency that comes from wanting to experience life and love to the fullest can force decisions that are not always in your best interests or anyone else's, for that matter. In fact, sometimes facing the consequences of your choices can be even worse than deat
Well, I had my dose of teen drama with this one. It was fun to read, by the age of 16, and I still defend the fact of keeping the style of the series. I didn't read the next ones 'cause they were more an aggregate, but I glad I finished the main storyline. And I was very happy with the ending. I must highlight the "trailer" for the book, which I loved. If it were made into an animation movie, I would see it no doubt.

Refreshing. It's been years since I've read the second book in this series and I really enjoyed reading this after a long time.
Finally, I got to finish this series. When I first read it, I was so confused by how ridiculous some of the events were, but eventually I just laughed and had fun reading. It has a light touch to it and I really loved that.
The Grimm Reader
I always end up liking these books more than I initially thought I would when I first picked them up. They are cute, funny, and have a lot of heart. Probably not the most amazing series in the world, but they are a nice, happy read while you are waiting for the next book in that intense YA series you are reading.
Though the covers suggest that they are a middle grade novel, they are young adult. I would recommend them for a nice, peaceful read to anyone.

Read it as a teen. Had all three books. Read them all. Liked them.( I was a teen). Gave them away cause I knew I would read them again. Recommend to TEENS. Praise Satan.
Pd. Cant really remember the plot of any of them, except the first one.

Lovesick is the third and final installment in the Ghostgirl trilogy. In it, Charlotte has finally found what seems like true love, but on the last day of her working at the station, they tell her some news that might not be so good. They have to go back.

This is the third novel in the series and I hoped that I had read the other first two books before reading this one. However, the author made the plot pretty clear so I was able understand what was going on. The book is about Charlotte, Eric, who is Charlotte's boyfriend, and her other friends, Coco, Prue and Pam, going on a mission to change the lives of people in the living world. Charlotte and her gang are dead and in order for them to "move on" and leave Dead Ed, which is a place in the unde ...more

In " Lovesick," the final book in the "Ghostgirl" trilogy by Tonya Hurley, dead teen Charlotte Usher is given one last assignment: go back to the world of the living and help her first crush Damen and fix whatever problems he is having with his girlfriend Scarlet.

Book 3 in the series was pretty good. I think it dragged in a few places, but still, an overall good, appropriate ending to the series. I don't think t
