I love haunting stories... No, I'm not talking about the stories that haunt you after you finish reading them, I'm talking about literally haunting stories.
Ghosts. Spirits. Apparitions. Life after death--the afterlife. Or as some like to call it the Hereafter.
Hereafter, to me, even saying the word gives me goosebumps. That's why I'm excited to introduce this weeks book of the week... Hereafter by: Tara Hudson
Can there truly be love after death?
Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her--past life--or her actual death--she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection she helps him survive.
Amelia and Joshua grow closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long. But even while they struggle to her their bond hidden from the living world, a frightening spirit named Eli is doing everything in his power to destroy their newfound happiness and drag Ameila back into the ghost world....forever.
Thrilling and evocative, with moments of pure pleasure, Hereafter is a sensation that you won't want to miss. (summary from goodreads)
True. True. Hereafter is a sensation that I definitely won't want to miss. And I hope that it haunts me. In a good way.
