Waiting on Wednesday: Ashes to Ashes

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Ashes to Ashes by Melissa Walker
Pub. Date: December 23, 2013


Goodreads says, "If I Stay meets the movie Ghost in this first book in a teen duology about a teenage-girl-turned-ghost who must cling to the echoes of her former life to save the people she left behind. Ashes to Ashes is author Melissa Walker's sweeping, romantic, and emotionally rich story about the things that torment and tempt us, even from the Great Beyond. This book is perfect for fans of Die for Me andImaginary Girls, and its breathtaking ending will leave readers anxiously awaiting the series conclusion, Dust to DustWhen Callie's life is cut short by a tragic accident, she expects to find nothingness, or maybe some version of heaven. Instead, her spirit travels to the Prism, an ethereal plane populated by the ghosts she thought were fictional. Here she meets a striking and mysterious ghost named Thatcher, who is meant to guide her as she learns to haunt and bring peace to the loved ones she left behind. However, Callie uncovers a dark secret about the spirit world: The angry souls who always populate ghost stories are real, dangerous, and willing to do whatever it takes to stay on Earth, threatening the existence of everyone she ever cared about. As she fights to save them, Callie will learn that while it may no longer beat, her heart can still love-and break."
I mean when a book is described as If I Stay meets Ghost and fans of Die For Me will love it, you know it's on auto-buy!  What do you guys think?

  2. I'm excited for this one, too. It just sounds so interesting. I'm not crazy about that cover, but they can't all be winners. I love that it is a two-parter instead of the typical trilogy. Great pick!

  5. I think this will be an emotional story. I haven't read If I Stay or the other books mentioned in the blurb but I have watched Ghost and I imagine this will be very popular with teens.

  6. This one certainly sounds good! I was a fan of Walker's Unbreak My Heart so I hope she can write a good paranormal story. I loved If I Stay and Die For Me though, so I think I will! Awesome pick. :)
