Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!

Queen of the Dead by Stacey Kade
Description (from GoodReads):
After being sent back from the light, Alona Dare - former homecoming queen, current Queen of the Dead - finds herself doing something she never expected: working. Instead of spending days perfecting her tan by the pool (her typical summer routine when she was, you know, alive), Alona must now cater to the needs of other lost spirits. By her side for all of this - ugh - “helping of others” is Will Killian: social outcast, seer of the dead, and someone Alona cares about more than she’d like.

Before Alona can make a final ruling on Will’s “friend” or “more” status, though, she discovers trouble at home. Her mom is tossing out Alona’s most valuable possessions, and her dad is expecting a new daughter with his wicked wife. Is it possible her family is already moving on? Hello! She’s only been dead for two months! Thankfully, Alona knows just the guy who can put a stop to this mess.

Unfortunately for Alona, Will has other stuff on his mind, and Mina, a young (and beautiful) seer, is at the top of the list. She’s the first ghost-talker Will’s ever met—aside from his father—and she may hold answers to Will’s troubled past. But can she be trusted? Alona immediately puts a check mark in the “clearly not” column. But Will is - ahem - willing to find out, even if it means leaving a hurt and angry Alona to her own devices, which is never a good idea.

Packed with romance, lovable characters, and a killer cliffhanger, Queen of the Dead is the out-of-this-world sequel to The Ghost and the Goth.

Is it June yet?? I read THE GHOST AND THE GOTH a week ago and I already miss Alona and Will... and this description is not helping! 

I'm totally rooting for Alona and Will to be more than just friends and I'm wondering how Alona's going to react to this new, pretty seer vying for Will's attention. 

I feel like I'm going to get my hands on this book, devour it, then sit around dreaming of book three... I mean, a killer cliffhanger? Good grief!


  1. This sounds great! I haven't read Ghost and The Goth yet, but I'm definitely interested now. Plot wise and the glimpse of the character's voice from this synopsis suggests Good. Read!

  2. I need to read The Ghost and the Goth ASAP!

  3. I've never heard of this series. I always learn about something new on Wenesdays! Thanks.

  4. Eager for this one, too! This was my pick last week! The first book was so good.

  5. I still have yet to read The Ghost and the Goth, but both of these books look like fun reads. Great pick!

  6. I love this cover! They really made her look ghostly. I've not read the first book yet, but I'm going to add it to the library list. Good pick!

  7. Oh wow. We're the same. I read The Ghost and the Goth last week, too and it's my WoW this week!

    I'm really hoping there's some way for Alona to come back to life but that's probably just wishful thinking lol


Make sure you whisper, I'm hiding!
