‚Notes from Ghost Town‘

Synopsis:
They say first love never dies…
From critically acclaimed author Kate Ellison comes a heartbreaking mystery of mental illness, unspoken love, and murder. When sixteen-year-old artist Olivia Tithe is visited by the ghost of her first love, Lucas Stern, it’s only through scattered images and notes left behind that she can unravel the mystery of his death. There’s a catch: Olivia has gone colorblind, and there’s a good chance she’s losing her mind completely—just like her mother did. How else to explain seeing (and falling in love all over again with) someone who isn’t really there? With the murder trial looming just nine days away, Olivia must follow her heart to the truth, no matter how painful. It’s the only way she can save herself.

My opinion:
I don’t know where I should start. In this book there were shed many tears, not only by the protagonist, but also by me while reading it. It begins immediately there – as it is described in the synopsis – with the death of Stern, who I immediately took to my heart at the first encounter, and with every other appearance of him, I fall more and more in love with him, but always with the knowledge that he’s damn dead and just a ghost…

Of course the book wasn’t only about the processing of the grief or about the releasing of Stern, to let him go – the BFF of Liv and almost boyfriend. No, because Liv’s schizophrenic mother is accused of the murder and the negotiations stand in a queue within the next seven days.
Seven days, in which together with Stern, Liv tries to find the true murderer of Stern also the reason for it. Hence, it is really very exciting and criminological and what I’ve liked was that I also could guess who the murderer was or not. And I must admit that up to three quarters of the book I had no clue. Hence, this guessing game and dissolving of the mysterious occurrences was made really well and has tied me up throughout the whole book.

And adding to this whole criminological background, there are of course the whole big feelings and emotions, which Liv has to go through. Not only the heartbreaking ‘letting go’ of Stern, but also the strength to stand to her mother, to fight for her, even if others put themselves in Liv’s way and make it harder for her and, also at the same time, to find the courage to let herself fall into a new love.

I’ve liked Liv really very much and she was a tough character and she was very likeable to me right from the beginning, during the prologue and before destiny let her life fall apart. Though she was almost already too strong for her sixteen years, but I prefer this much more than these irritating, naive girlies. Moreover Liv was also emotionally cold, especially at the beginning and reserved to the others, except towards her stepsisters, but after what has happened to her, it’s just logical and understandable.

And now to Stern … Man, how can an author create such a great, charming, amusing, gifted and hot guy, just to let him die in the beginning – to let him be a ghost? Still, when I think back to the book, tears fill my eyes always when I think of him, of Liv’s longing for him and also of mine. That was really painful!
But I also found Austin quite okay, even if for a long time it wasn’t clear, which role/ game he played. Nevertheless, he had a mistake … namely -> he just wasn’t Stern. 😦

Though I haven’t liked the writing manner of the author by hundred percent and here and there I also had difficulties with her English, but nevertheless she could conjure a great atmosphere here and therefore I’m sure, that I’ll read a book of her again sometime.

Even if some other readers think that the end was too corny in a way or too rose-colored, for me it was great and I was totally happy with it and have no problem with how it has ended. But I’m a happy-end-fan, as you know, and therefore it was exactly my taste and I hope, if some of you decide to the read this book too, that you all will feel like that as well. Therefore I like to recommend it and I wish you all a lot of fun with the book! But before you start reading, procure a big pack of handkerchiefs for it! 🙂

.

Quotes:

Liv: ‚When her fingers glide across the keys and what results is the kind of music that makes you stop where you are and notice every beautiful thing around you. His fingers can do this, too.‘

Liv: ‚… Before we knew that we were not permanent, and that a good, easy life is not something the universe is contractually obligated to grand you.‘

Liv: ‚… And I ace, as much as I have since the day Stern and I kissed, for a person beside me who understands exactly what I need without me ever having to say it.  Even if the world stays gray forever, I just don’t think it would be so bad if I knew I could have Stern, permanent, solid, for real.‘

‚Geisterhauch‘
by Darynda Jones

(Second Grave on the Left)

Charley Davidson # 2...

Inhaltsangabe:
Charley Davidsons beste Freundin Cookie bittet sie, ihr bei der Suche nach einer Bekannten zu helfen, die seit Kurzem vermisst wird. Ihr Verschwinden scheint mit einem rätselhaften Mord zusammen zu hängen, dem Charley auf den Grund gehen soll. Zugleich wird Charley vom Geist des attraktiven Reyes heimgesucht, der sie vor einer Horde Dämonen beschützen will.
(Source: Goodreads.com)

Meine Gedanken zum Buch:
WAS ist mir Reyes in diesem Buch passiert oder mit den beiden als Paar? Reyes war fast nicht anwesend und ich habe ihn schmerzlich vermisst. Und Charley war stur wie ein Esel (Reyes Worte, nicht meine ^^) und hat sich ständig mit ihm über das gleiche Thema gestritten, anstatt wenigstens einmal die Zeit mit ihm zu genießen. Was dazu führte – klarerweise – dass überhaupt keine erotischen Szenen zwischen den beiden vorgefallen sind. Ja okay, sie haben sich geküsst, das war es aber auch schon. Aber generell war Charley sehr auf sich alleine gestellt und mir hat die Romanze viel zu sehr gefehlt, als dass ich das Buch vollkommen genießen hätte können.

Die Handlung war wie im ersten Teil eine Mischung aus knallharten Actionszenen, gepaart mit grenzenlosem Humor. Charley bekommt eine Woche nach dem Ende des ersten Buch einen neuen Fall, in dem sie eine verschwundene Freundin von Cookie finden möchte. Dabei stoßen sie auf andere Morde und ganz nebenbei deckt Charley weitere auf und wird selbst wieder einmal von mächtigen Leuten bedroht und geht dabei einige Male selber fast ‚hops‘. Aber es wäre nicht Charley, wenn sie sich davon einschüchtern ließe oder ihre große Klappe verlieren würde. Sie nimmt alles mit einem Charme an, der manchmal etwas ‚tief‘ ist – zugegeben, aber sie hat eine wahnsinnig einnehmende Art: witzig und brillant, aber trotzdem selbstkritisch und einfach nur ulkig. Ihre inneren Monologe oder Dialoge mit anderen sind Grenzgenial und ich musste bei jeder Seite mindestens zweimal kichern (und ich kichere sonst nicht ^^) oder laut losprusten. Der Wortwitz in den Büchern von Jones ist erste Klasse und ich konnte mich hier köstlich amüsieren, auch wenn ich von der Handlung selber nicht so überzeugt war. Was aber nicht daran lag, dass es langweilig gewesen wäre – nein – es war ständig was los und mehrere Dinge passierten gleichzeitig, dass man ständig weiterlesen musste. Aber Reyes war eben leider nie dabei. :/

Außerdem ist mir leider die Grundgeschichte mit dem Himmel und der Hölle und den Dämonen daraus zu übernatürlich und geht mir schon zu viel Fantasie. Ich mag zwar Fantasie, aber Urban und noch realitätsbezogen. Ich fürchte aber, dass dieses Höllenthema, rund um Charley und Reyes, noch weiter zunehmen wird. Aber wir werden sehen.

Generell war das Buch von Enttäuschungen für Charley geprägt, da ihr Vater sie benutzt und als Köder verwendet hat, was sogar mir weh getan hat und auch Reyes war zum Ende hin einfach ein Arsch. Nach allem was sie für ihn riskiert und getan hat, sie einfach so fortzuschicken – wow – das war heftig und ich habe mit Charley mitgelitten. Außerdem entrinnt sie mehrmals den Tod und muss immer weiter kämpfen, ohne dass sich eine wirklich Besserung zeigt. Dafür hat sie von mir aber den Durchhalte-Bonus gewonnen, denn ich hätte schon lange den Hut darauf geworfen.

Cover:
Mir gefällt das Cover mit der roten Farbgebung leider nicht so gut, wie das von Teil eins und ich wäre generell dafür gewesen, wenn man die englischen Cover verwendet hätten, denn die passen einfach zur Geschichte und zu Charley. 😉

All in all:
Auch, wenn dieser Band schwächer war, ist es trotzdem noch eine wahnwitzige, spannende Serie, die ich nicht missen möchte und sie ist schon alleine wegen dem Humor und Wortwitz absolut empfehlens- und lesenswert!

Rating:
3,5 of 5 points – (I really liked it)

‚Anna dressed in Blood‘
by Kendare Blake

Anna #1...

Synopsis:
Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.
So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father’s mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.
When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn’t expect anything outside of the ordinary: move, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he’s never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, but now stained red and dripping blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.
And she, for whatever reason, spares his life. (Source: Goodreads.com)

My thoughts about the book:
I’ve not even read the first two chapters and I‘ve immediately known – YES, this is a book, which I’ll like and in the end it has turned out, that I was right. From the first pages on, I felt the same atmosphere, I’ve while watching the TV-series ‘Supernatural‘ and also the language was similar to this show. What is fantastic for me, because I’m a huge fan of the series! Unfortunately, here there is missing the sexy brother, but I can live with that, because Cas is also not ugly, but exactly the contrary. 😉 Moreover, he is funny, charming, though a little bullheaded, but nevertheless he acts with caution, is cheeky and just refreshing!

Cas is in general a very likeable character, who though sometimes is a little bit arrogant about himself, when it comes to his specialty ->  killing ghosts, but the reader thereby also recognize a little his insecurity behind the cool facade.
Also Anna was an interesting character, who sometimes was also cruel and had a bad side in her, but she also has a good and disarming one, so that the read can’t divide her in ‘black and white’, but in grey shades.
It was like this also with almost every character in the book, that every figure showed their good and also weaker sides as well. As for example one of the characters later played the hero in the second row and he was a guy, who showed little courage at the beginning or Carmel, the blond beauty of the school, who later presents more than only her appearance.

In spite of the subject about ghosts and the creepy background, it is also really funny and is written very refreshing. The narrative view is from Cas, and I like it that once a guy is telling the story instead of a girl – and I’ve liked this much. Add to that the story was written in the present, which has fitted well to the plot and the tempo.
I find particularly the writing manner of Blake very easy, loosey-goosey and fast to read. It’s not overloaded, but contains nice approaches and descriptions of Cas’ feelings. Moreover, I think that the author writes the dialogues just great. I find some authors write them easier and other have more problems with dialogues. But Blake’s dialogues sounded absolutely natural and they always fits perfectly in the story. *great*

Up to now it sounds really great and now you probably ask yourselves, why the book hasn’t got five stars. This is due to the fact that the book has become weaker in the last third section. Not only by the plot, but unfortunately also by the characters. Anyhow Cas lost some of his spirit and also his connection with Anna wasn’t right. Though it was nice, but it was also too quick and also illogical.
The same happens with the famous ‚final battle‘, which got heightened till the end and then was solved too easily. Here for me the end was also over too quickly and too short. I would have wished for more information, because at the end, there were still some questions open.

Luckily there is still a second part, which I’ll read for sure and I hope that this will be published soon in German. In English you can already get the second part, so hopefully it won’t last long with the translation.

Cover:
It’s an absolutely brilliant cover, which has made me curious right from my first look. I think it doesn’t only looks great and special, but it also fits perfectly to the plot of the book! *top*

All in all:
I found this book really very entertaining, exciting and every now and then also creepy, but still within the scope for a YA book. The dialogues, characters and writing style were great and I like to recommend this book gladly, especially for fans of ‘Supernatural’

‚First Grave on the Right‘
by Darynda Jones

Charley Davidson # 1
...

Synopsis:
Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light.” But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life…and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely.  (Source: Goodreads.com)

My thoughts about the book:
I’ve been looking forward to finally read this book, because of the wonderful cover and I had it on my wish list for such a long times, because I had already read great reviews. Often when I’ve high expectations of a book, I’m usually disappointed in the end, but to my luck here it wasn’t that case and my expectations were even exceeded.

I don’t want to tell you too much about the plot, but I would like to summarize it briefly to give a short insight:

Charley is a reaper and hence has from time to time amusing, as well as also sad, occurrences with dead people. Particularly with those, which can’t say goodbye to the world, because they have fallen victim to a murderer and would like to clear up their death or also hold on to other things in their former life.

Here it’s time for Charley to show up and in her case it’s also very handy that that her uncle Bob works as a cop in the homicide squad, and she can stand helpfully at his side – of course it’s also kind of practical that she just can ask the ghost by herself who has killed them. But in this book the current murder case is much more complicated and is more obscure than usually – add to that comes the fact that Charley isn’t able to get free from a mystifying ‘being’; a mysterious dark stranger, who constantly appears in her sexual dreams …

Okay, now at the latest everybody probably knows that this isn’t a YA book, but also contents more ‘explicit’ scenes and I’ve enjoyed every single one of them! 😉

However I’ve to admit that at the beginning I had some difficulties to get along with the writing style of Jones. It’s a little sloppy and rough and I just needed some time to get used to it, but as soon I got into the story and got to know the characters, I didn’t notice the writing style any more, it even fits perfectly to the plot, as well as to the whole atmosphere of the book.

Already like after a chapter it has started to please me very much and also all of the characters were really interesting and likeable. Above all of course the main character, called Charley, who was so funny I had to laugh so much and which will he leave nobody cold, but she is also stubborn or clumsy, though really sassy and likeable. But moreover she is tough; a fighter who can deal out but also take in and on top of that she shows charming qualities as well, so that you just have to take her in your heart.

I also found her scenes with her uncle Bob or with Garrett, one of the police officers, very interesting and amusing, by her cheeky tongue and her attitude not to mince matters.

But also the passages in which she meets with Reyes are great – okay, here some women will die for yearning 😉 – and all of them are top-class and will push you to read on feverishly from side to side and will leave you longingly on the couch.

But the book turns not only to be about erotic scenes or witty dialogues between the protagonists, but it also becomes really thrilling in the crime/ murder case Charley tried so solve together with her uncle and Garrett. By that Charley also gets in quite a lot of precarious and dangerous situation and these carry the reader away so fast that you won’t be able to put aside the book for just one minute.

The end leaves some things open for further books – luckily there are going to be another three parts – but there is no cliffhanger at the end which makes waiting more acceptable.

Cover:
Though I like also the English cover and there everyone sees immediately what it’s about, the German one is also just a ‘feast for the eyes’. I find the color wonderful, as well as the squiggly letters and the picture. It’s really gorgeous and one of the nicest covers of late.

All in all:
The book is an absolutely great prelude of the Charley Davidson series and which leaves you behind greedily for the next book. It’s absorbing thrilling, full of relish erotic and crazily funny – the perfect mix for a dreamlike reading pleasure.

Rating:
4,5 of 5 points – (soo awesome!)

Quotes:

Charley: „My fore-parts, as you so ineloquently put it, have names.“ I pointed to my right breast. „This is Danger.“ Then my left. „And this is Will Robinson. I would appreciate it if you addressed them accordingly.”
Garrett: „You named your breasts?“ I turned my back to him with a shrug. „I named my ovaries, too, but they don’t get out as much.”

Charley: Maybe I needed sensitivity training. I once signed up for an anger management class, but the instructor pissed me off.

‚Das Flüstern der Toten‘
by Darynda Jones

(First Grave on the Right)

Charley Davidson # 1
...

First Sentence:
„Seit Monaten hatte ich immer wieder denselben Traum – den, wo ein dunkler Fremder aus Rauch und Schatten materialisierte, um mit mir Doktor zu spielen.“

Last Sentence:
„Dann spürte ich an den Lippen seine Berührung, und mir wurde klar, dass mein Leben nie wieder so sein würde wie bisher.“

Inhaltsangabe:
Charley Davidson hat einen ungewöhnlichen Job: Sie weist den Geistern der Toten den Weg ins Jenseits. Als drei Anwälte einer Kanzlei in derselben Nacht ermordet werden, tauchen deren Geister bei Charley auf und bitten sie, ihren Mörder zu finden. Bei ihren Ermittlungen gerät Charley schon bald in große Gefahr. Ein dunkles Geschöpf hat sich erhoben und droht, großes Unheil über Albuquerque zu bringen… (Source: Goodreads.com)

Meine Gedanken zum Buch:
Ich habe mich sehr auf dieses Buch gefreut; zu einem wegen dem wunderschönen Cover und zum anderen, weil ich es schon lange auf meiner Wunschliste hatte, da ich bereits von vielen Seiten gehört hatte, dass es so toll sein soll. Oft, wenn ich hohe Erwartungen an ein Buch habe, werde ich meistens enttäuscht, aber zu meinem Glück hier in diesem Fall ganz und gar nicht, sie wurden sogar noch übertroffen.

Um nicht zu viel von der Handlung zu verraten, möchte ich nur kurz zusammenfassen um was es grob geht: Charley ist eine Schnitterin und hat daher immer wieder lustige, wie auch traurige, Begebenheiten mit Toten. Besonders mit jenen, die sich nicht von der Welt verabschieden können, da sie einem Mörder zum Opfer gefallen sind und ihren Tod aufklären möchten oder auch andere Dinge sie hier halten. Hier kommt unter anderem Charley zum Handkuss und sehr praktisch ist es in ihrem Fall, dass ihr Onkel Bob bei der Mordkommission arbeitet und sie ihm immer wieder hilfreich zur Seite stehen kann – ist ja auch praktisch, wenn man die Toten selber fragen kann, wer sie umgebracht hat. Aber in diesem Buch ist der aktuelle Mordfall viel komplizierter und undurchsichtiger als sonst – dazu kommt, dass Charley selbst von einem mysteriösen Wesen nicht mehr frei kommt; einem geheimnisvollen dunklen Fremden, der ihr in ihren sexuellen Träumen erscheint…
Okay, spätestens jetzt wissen wohl alle, dass es sich hier nicht um ein Jugendbuch handelt, sondern auch ‚explizitere‘ Szenen vorkommen, wobei ich jede einzelne davon genossen habe! 😉

Ich gebe aber zu, dass ich anfangs etwas Schwierigkeiten hatte mit dem Schreibstil von Jones klar zu kommen. Er ist etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig und wirkt vielleicht etwas salopp, aber sobald man in die Geschichte rein kommt und die Charaktere kennenlernt, merkt man, dass auch der Schreibstil perfekt dazu passt, sowie zur gesamten Atmosphäre des Buches.

Es hat bereits nach einem Kapitel angefangen mir wirklich gut zu gefallen und auch die Charaktere waren alle zusammen sehr interessant gestaltet. Allen voran der Hauptcharakter Charley, die einfach zum brüllen komisch ist, hartnäckig, wirklich frech und mit einem Humor, der einem nicht kalt lässt. Aber sie ist außerdem tough, eine Kämpferin die austeilen, aber auch einstecken kann und noch dazu weist sie ebenso liebenswerte Eigenschaften auf, dass man sie einfach ins Herz schließen muss.
Sehr interessant und witzig fand ich ihre Szenen mit ihrem Onkel Bob oder mit Garrett, einer der Polizeibeamten, durch ihr freches Mundwerk und ihre Art, sich kein Blatt vor den Mund zu nehmen.
Aber auch die Passagen, in denen sie auf Reyes trifft – ja ja, hier werden einige Frauen vor Sehnsucht aufseufzen – sind erstklassig und lassen einem fieberhaft die Seiten dahin blättern und schmachtend auf der Couch zurück.

Aber das Buch dreht sich nicht nur um erotische Szenen oder witzige Dialoge zwischen den Protagonisten, sondern es wird auch richtig spannend im Kriminal-/ Mordfall den Charley mit ihrem Onkel und Garrett zu lösen versucht. Dabei gerät Charley in so manche prekäre und gefährliche Situation und diese reißen einem derart mit, dass man das Buch keine Minute aus der Hand legen möchte.

Das Ende lässt manches offen für weitere Teile – zum Glück kommen noch drei Folgebände – aber es ist kein Cliffhanger am Schluss, dass das Warten um einiges angenehmer macht.

Cover:
Mir gefällt zwar auch das englische Cover total gut und man sieht dort gleich um was es eigentlich geht, aber das Deutsche ist ebenso eine Augenweide. Ich finde die Farbgebung wunderschön, sowie die verschnörkelte Schrift und das Bild selber. Wirklich traumhaft und eines der schöneren Cover der letzten Zeit.

All in all:
Ein absolut toller Auftakt der Charley Davidson Reihe, die einem gierig auf den nächsten Teil zurücklässt. Packend spannend, lustvoll erotisch und irre komische – die perfekte Mischung für ein traumhaftes Lesevergnügen.

Rating:
4,5 of 5 points – (soo awesome!)
