Want Wednesday ( sorry it is late)

Well, I am better now but was in bed for two days after going out on Monday. I slept most of the time so a little backed up on the reading and blog posts. So here are the books I will be waiting for this week

TITLE :Hereafter                                    AUTHOR: Tara Hudson                                SUMMARY: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 ever 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 keep 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 Amelia back into the ghost world . . . forever.

WHY I WANT TO READ THIS BOOK: Look at the cover. I hope I like the book half as much as the cover.

RELEASE DATE : May 8th (paperback)

TITLE: Croak
AUTHOR: Gina Damico


Fed up with her wild behavior, sixteen-year-old Lex’s parents ship her off to upstate
New York to live with her Uncle Mort for the summer, hoping that a few months of
dirty farm work will whip her back into shape. But Uncle Mort’s true occupation is
much dirtier than shoveling manure.
He’s a Grim Reaper. And he’s going to teach Lex the family business.
She quickly assimilates into the peculiar world of Croak, a town populated by
reapers who deliver souls from this life to the next. But Lex can’t stop her desire for
justice—or is it vengeance?—whenever she encounters a murder victim, craving to
stop the attackers before they can strike again. Will she ditch Croak and go rogue with
her reaper skills?

WHY I WANT TO READ THIS: I like the story line.  I thought it was about a boy but then read the description and liked it even more.

RELEASE DATE: March 12th ( Paperback)

As I have said before I perfer the paperbacks. I I think hardcovers are just too bulkie. So all of the books I am waiting for are paper backs and are available in hard cover so if you have read them just post a link to your review I am always looking for imput on the books I want.
