Waiting on Wednesday (49)

Hi all and happy Wednesday! Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine!

This week's pick is:
Body and Soul by Stacey Kade
May 29, 2012

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...



I love this series. I love, love, LOVE it! It has all my favorite things: ghosts, romance and two awesome main characters. But what I really want is a happy ending, though I'm not sure that I'll ever get it. Will and Alona always surprise me and I know that this book will be no different.

I'm on Queen of the Dead and AM TOTALLY ADDICTED. I'm so excited for the third book anyway, because I want to see what Will and Alona's happy every after looks like.

Have an amazing reading week!

I've completely enjoyed this series--no middle book slump with this one--and can't wait to see where it ends. I hear there are no ARCs for this one? Darn. Guess we'll have to wait until May (!!).
