About the Author

My to-do list dictates that I try to cram 48 hours of living into a day instead of the usual 24.  I've chosen a life filled with animals.  I train for marathons with my dog, then go to work as a small animal veterinarian, and finish the day by tripping over my pets as I attempt to convince my two unruly children that YES, it really IS time for bed.  But I can't wait until the house is quiet to write; I have to steal moments throughout the day.  Ten minutes here, a half hour there, I live within my imagination.
 
Like all busy American mothers, I multi-task.  I work out plot holes during runs.  Instead of meditating, I type madly during yoga stretches.  I find inspiration in everyday things:  a beautiful smile, a heartbreaking song, or a newspaper article on a political theory.  For example, a long drive in the dark listening to an NPR program on the SMILEY FACE MURDERS theory made me ask so many questions that I wrote HOW TO DATE DEAD GUYS to answer them to my satisfaction.
 
I'd love to have more time to write (and run, read, and sleep), but until I find Hermione Granger's time turner, I will juggle real life with the half-written stories in my head.  Main characters and plot lines intertwine in my cranium, and I need to let my writing weave the tales on paper so I can find out what happens next.

Format: Paperback
The tale begins when we meet Emma Roberts, a shy sometimes-awkward college sophomore who dresses like a tomboy and blushes when speaking to the opposite sex. She is studious and her roommate is outgoing, a girlie girl who is more interested in boys than textbooks. When she drags Emma along to a frat-party, she meets Mike a fellow sophomore. When a tragic accident occurs, and Mike ends up dead, Emma is blamed. When her roommates’ friend leaves a Book of Shadows behind in their room, Emma decides to bring back the dead. The tale that unfolds is filled with romance, mystery, and life lessons. I found myself lost within the pages of How to Date Dead Guys and quickly consumed this.

The characters are all unique, and the departed we soon learn have unfinished business. Noser’s spin on their return was clever. Emily loves literature and math in fact, books and math make more sense to her then people. It was fun witnessing her personal growth as she befriended these dead guys. She is a natural with the Book of Shadows, yet the reader cannot help feeling uneasy about its power. All of the dead guys’ stories were interesting, and their personalities very different. I ended up caring about each of them. Secondary “living” characters weaved into the tale adding to the mystery and suspense. A local police officer suspects Emma knows more then she is letting on. Her appearance at past victims homes only reinforces his suspicion.

How to Date Dead Guys has a strong storyline from the witchcraft under the Blood Moon, to the overall mystery involving drowning victims. While romantic feelings develop on Emma’s part, this tale focuses on helping the dead guys and the mystery surrounding their deaths. Through it all we see Emma grow, mend fences and find herself.

I admit I picked this one up solely for the fun factor. The premises sounded great and I needed a good light fun and airy read to pull me out of a YA slump I was currently on and while I wouldn't say this completely pulled me out of my slump, it did make me forget about it for the duration of the book and really what more could you ask for than that?

Emma was an interesting character, she was shy and timid and very much meek but that changes, albeit slowly, but it does. As she grows into her powers and accepts them, she also grows into herself and I think that is the best part about this whole book, just how much her character grows. I always say this but it bears repeating, I am always about the growth.

This book was quite the adventure as new guy after new guy emerges from the river and sets out to do something that they needed to do before their untimely death.

I never knew what to expect to happen next as each adventure and person, takes on a life of their own.

I had a lot of fun reading this and I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another book from this author.

*I received a free ecopy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review (but I also bought a copy for myself)*

I didn’t expect this book to affect me the way it did.

With such a quirky, fun title and premise, even though I read some other reviews, I didn’t quite believe them. But listen to the other reviews and listen to this one—the character development, and the development of relationships between characters, for Emma, all the dead guys she brings back, and even some of the smaller side characters was real, believable, and absolutely phenomenal.

And the book was so much more meaningful and deep and touching and heart-wrenching than I thought it would be. I don’t full-on cry over books, but I did shed some tears and get watery eyes numerous times while reading. I’m a series girl because it usually takes me numerous books to really connect to characters and get emotional about them, but every dead guy introduced in this book somehow managed to worm his way into my heart. I just really felt for the characters and the struggles and heaviness of the situations they were in, and I couldn’t believe how quickly I got attached to each one.

As for the premise, I was imagining that the main character would do a spell and then a bunch of ghosts would rise up and follow her around. Instead, well, I’ll let you have the fun of discovering it as you read and just say it was very unique and creative and kept getting more interesting and complicated (in a great way) as the book went on!

I did have some general issues in the beginning (like the immaturity of the protagonist), but they faded away as I got sucked in, and eventually they all proved to be a purposeful part of the story.

INITIAL THOUGHTS
My first thoughts approaching this book are that it will be a light, "chick lit" read. I'm looking forward to the "magical" elements of the book too.

MY REVIEW
I received this e-copy from the publisher's Curiosity Quills Press in return for my honest review and participation in the Blog Tour.
The main character is called Emma Roberts, she has led a quite sheltered life until going away to live on a college campus. She gets put with one of the "popular girls" as her roommate. She has been dragged out to a party with that very room-mate when she first sets eyes on Mike Carlson, Her roommate immediately falls in love with Kevin Carlson. So when Emma is being pulled around social events with her room mate she tends to bump into the brothers a lot. Her roommate soon starts dating Kevin, with a little help from her sister and the Book Of Shadows that was handed down to her by their grandmother. So when Mike is celebrating his 21st birthday Emma goes along with her popular roommate to the "party". Whilst partying Mike becomes quite drunk and on the walk home with Emma decides he want to swim the notorious river that's near the campus. Emma cannot stop Mike from getting in the river and attempting to swim across so she decides to join him. Emma makes the swim to the other side, tragically Mike doesn't.
Emma's roommate and Kevin (Mike's brother) blame Emma for not preventing Mike from going into the river. In fact everyone on campus seems to blame Emma. It's around that time that Emma stumbles upon the Book Of Shadows. She decides to go to the river and try to exchange her life for that of Mike. Only things go awry and she ends up bringing other males that have perished in the river.
