Nancy (nancybf) | 5 comments Dear Bruno:

I'm a newbie here. Can you advise please what the "ghouls c" refers to? Usually, we go by Girls/Women/Ladies. Thanks for your direct view of the book. My book arrives Sept 5 and I'll have more comments to make after that.

Farren (mmmcookies) | 524 comments I enjoyed the audiobook, I thought it was a lot of fun, but I also didn't agree with all the raving reviews. I would have liked it better had Mila not went on and on about her weight. I just hate when characters think their size or appearance is the only thing that matters about them.

I also thought it was almost as if she went out of her way to be as different and unlikable as possible, then said everyone thought she was strange just because she was a Mexican Wiccan, instead of unnecessarily bitchy.

I didn't like June and Dayton at first but I grew to love them, which was definitely the author's intentions, but I actually liked them way more than Mila and Riley!

Farren (mmmcookies) | 524 comments I don't remember which one is was (I have a terrible memory and it's been a few months) but I liked that they seemed so carefree and fun living up those few days they were given back to live, but one was really sneaking to her family's house to get "supplies" because she missed them. I think that endeared them to me. Mila was always so down on herself she was a total bummer and her bitchiness came off as insecure.

What made me enjoy the book was how fun it was in general, the antics the girls got up to. It reminded me of one of my favorite Buffy episodes. I listened to the audiobook and Rebecca Soler narrated it so well that she kept me hooked the whole time.

K.C. Nicola | 136 comments Just finished it, and it was…alright, but not mind-blowing. Mila’s narration style irked me in areas, as did the book’s ending; the major twist toward the end was also kinda easy for me to predict. Overall, it was fun to read, though.

Dan Lutts (dan_lutts) | 2265 comments I just started reading the book (I'm on pg. 48) and already found her narrative style irritating. Also, she's trying too hard to make Mila a wise ass.

And what's a "possum smile"?

Sarah M | 7 comments I just finished this book today, it was pretty cute but not amazing. Definitely a nice lighthearted read, but I was definitely expecting more of... something. Honestly I can't quite figure out what exactly the books is missing, maybe I just didn't love the main character as much as I thought I might, but yeah. Fun, but not really gripping in any way.
I did really like the friendships in this book though! They all helped each other start to grow up a bit I think which was nice to see.

Also, I have no idea what a possum smile would be lol ~

Farren (mmmcookies) | 524 comments I don't think those foul creatures are capable of smiling 🤮

I'm glad I listened to the audiobook, I wonder if that's why I enjoyed the book as much as I did. I probably would have rated it three stars otherwise. Going into it all I saw were these glowing five star reviews and I ended up being disappointed because of them.

Nancy (nancybf) | 5 comments I'm only on Chapter 5, but am really enjoying Mila's humour! So far, I think the book is a higher rating than shown on Goodreads.

Dan Lutts (dan_lutts) | 2265 comments I just finished Chapter 9 and think Mila's sarcasm is forced. But that's the beauty of fiction and nonfiction: different people interpret the same thing differently.

I do think the scene in the Walmart is unrealistic. All the time I was reading it I was thinking "Why don't they get kicked out?"

Farren (mmmcookies) | 524 comments For real! You were dead, and about to be dead again, who cares about the necklace! I think Riley knowing her brother gave Mila the necklace may have made her feel like they were both replacing her with the other

Dan Lutts (dan_lutts) | 2265 comments I just finished the book and was underwhelmed. The concept is really intriguing. However, I didn't find any of the characters likeable and they just seemed to putter around killing time and trying to say snappy pieces of dialogue. Finally, on page 222, the book took off and for the next fifty pages or so I didn't want to put it down.

I agree with Sarah that the book seems to be missing something.
