Ever by Jessa Russo

Release Date: October 1, 2012
Publisher: Curiousity Quills Press

Seventeen-year-old Ever’s love life has been on hold for the past two years. She’s secretly in love with her best friend Frankie, and he’s completely oblivious.

Of course, it doesn't help that he’s dead, and waking up to his ghost every day has made moving on nearly impossible.

Frustrated and desperate for something real, Ever finds herself falling for her hot new neighbor Toby. His relaxed confidence is irresistible, and not just Ever knows it. But falling for Toby comes with a price that throws Ever’s life into a whirlwind of chaos and drama. More than hearts are on the line, and more than Ever will suffer.

Some girls lose their hearts to love.

Some girls lose their minds.

Ever Van Ruysdael could lose her soul.
Why can't I wait?
Chaos, drama, craziness-- everything you might expect from a story about a girl in a love triangle with her next door neighbor and her ghostly best friend.

Forget Me Not by Carolee Dean

Release Date: October 2, 2012
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Author Website: www.caroleedean.com

Ally is devastated when a scandalous photo of her is texted around school. With her reputation in shambles and her life essentially over, she hides out in a back hallway, trying to figure out where everything went wrong.

     Elijah has spent time in that hallway too. He landed there after taking a whole bottle of sleeping pills. Now he can see ghosts, and he knows what Ally has yet to suspect—that she’s already half dead, and one choice away from never coming back. Elijah has loved Ally for years and would do anything to save her from the in-between place. But if she’s going to live, Ally must face her inner demons and find the will to save herself.
Why can't I wait? 
I've heard amazing things about Carolee Dean's writing, and this description completely hooked me. I want to find out what's going on in this book! And it's written in alternating verse from what I understand, and I love verse. 


  1. I saw Ever on netgalley and it sounds really good! I like ghost stories like that. I haven't heard of Forget Me Not before but it sounds really interesting too. Greta picks! :)
