Waiting On Wednesday (22)


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

My choice for this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The final book in The Ghost and the Goth Trilogy!

Body and Soul (The Ghost and the Goth #3) by Stacey Kade

Hardcover
Expected publication: May 1st 2012 by Hyperion

Description from Goodreads:

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 separate me from Lily without killing her. But it’s not going well. Then, when it seems like things couldn’t get any worse, we run into Misty, my former best friend and boyfriend-stealer extraordinaire, who claims she’s being haunted...by me. Seriously?

I’m determined to get to the bottom of who’s pretending to be the spirit of Alona Dare (while I’m pretending to be someone else) and then get the heck out of this body. Or die trying...

The Goth
I’ll admit it. It’s really weird to look at Alona but see Lily. I do know the difference, though, contrary to what Alona might be saying. And Alona is more than a pretty face to me, not that she would believe that.

Our one lead for some help in this messed up situation might be a page torn from the yellow pages-—the “Psychics” section-—I found in my dad’s stuff. One of the “fakes” seems a bit more real-—and odd-—than the others. Before I can investigate further, though, Alona is off and chasing a ghost that’s probably nothing more than a figment of Misty’s guilty imagination. Now Lily’s family is freaking out because she didn’t come home, my mom is ordering me to stay out of it, and something is definitely wrong with the person formerly known as Lily “Ally” Turner...


Why do I want to read it?

I really liked the first book in this series. It was a light read and pure fluff - very cute and funny. I didn't really care for the second book. It went in a completely different direction than book 1 and I didn't enjoy it as much. Now I have my hopes pinned on book 3 redeeming the series and bringing back my love. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

  8. I felt the same way about the first book! It was such a sweet and fun book, but it actually had some depth and touching moments instead of being pure fluff and that was one of the best parts! :) I haven't read the second book yet, but I plan on it soon so I can be ready to read this one too!

    Awesome pick for your WOW this week, Sandra! :)
