This book far exceeded my expectations. I assumed this would be a dark tale of ghosts and what not, with your obligatory love triangle and a heroine without much of a personality. What I got was a dark tale of ghosts and what they could become, Shades. I also got a tragic, vulnerable relationship between a heroine with depth and personality, and an aspiring musician whose parting came too soon. And GOOD LORD, it was heartfelt and it made me cry. Jeri Smith-Ready could teach an AP course on makin [...]

Shade was filled with intricate characters, a fun paranormal element and a story-line that kept me glued to the pages.  Yet this book solidified my distaste for a particular trope, since it's done in a way I can't handle.  I know many people enjoy love triangles and I can too sometimes, yet I loathe when a heroine flips back and forth between liking the guys.  I become devastated when I see the boy I fell for get his heart crushed again and again.  But if you adore multiple love interests, w [...]

Get ready for some extreme raving/unhealthy obsessing. Enter IF YOU DARE!! *cue cheesy over used Halloween organ music*Oh, Jeri Smith-Ready. After reading this book, I have automatically added you to my Exclusive List of Epicly Fantabulous People, even before I knew much about you (of course you proved to be awesome when I did eventually look you up). Because, let's face it: No one can write a book that amazing and not be epic. It's just not possible.Brief summary(In my own words):Okay. So in th [...]

This book could have very nearly been a disaster. It could have taken the sour young-adult fantasy route that I'm experiencing more and more these days. It even had the dreaded love triangle. But, I was pleasantly surprised in the end.This books is about a girl, named Aura (the name made me cringe), who can see ghosts. Which is not unusual because everyone born after the Shift can see the violet figures of people who once were. The night of his 17th birthday, Aura's boyfriend, Logan, dies. He is [...]

Fuck, this tore my heart out! I love these lyrics, so beautifully haunting and heartwrenching! I HATE ZACH!!!! Logan will always have my heart. Zach can shove his accent up his ass. I can't read the rest of this series, and I won't. Nope, I'm not supporting Zach. I hated him the minute he stepped onto the page. What a shame because I enjoyed Shade. :(Merged review:Every now and then there comes a book that will touch your heart all the way to your soul and leave you breathless. Or in this case s [...]

This book is what I would call an 'Awkward Reunion'. Its like meeting someone you haven't seen in a really long time and acting really formal and too sweet with them. I mean, I really tried to like this book. Honestly. But there was just something sofake about the writing. I felt like Jeri Smith-Ready was trying too hard to sound like a mourning teenager in love who wants to do things her way. She tried to emulate how teenagers act and speak and think but the fact is, people don't act like this, [...]

So I have this huge Post-it note I made on my computer with all the things that are wrong with this book. In fact, I pretty much hated it up to 3/4 of it. Now I find myself at a total loss for words, because, incredibly, I realized I actually liked it.Shade is set in a world where ghosts can be seen walking around. Not by everyone, though. Only by people born after the Shift, a date when unexplainably something changed in the cosmic order of things and newborns start to acquire this terrible abi [...]

3.5 StarsThis review can also be found at fortheloveofbooksreviewssAura was born after the Shift, which means that she can see ghosts. She wonders why the Shift actually happened in the first place, and she wishes that she could reverse it so she could live without having to listen to ghosts tell her their stories or demand justice all the time.When her boyfriend Logan suddenly dies, Aura is devastated. But because of the Shift, she finds herself able to talk with him, spend time with him, and p [...]

(3.5 stars)Wow! Now this is supernatural on a whole new level!!Since the Shift, everyone under the age of sixteen can see and talk to ghost who haven't passed over. Aura is one of them, and while it may be slightly annoying, it's something she's learn to deal with.So what happens when her beloved boyfriend Logan, who got the break of his life on his birthday, suddenly dies and becomes a ghost in all his violet glory?Aura has to convince him to move on before he becomes a Shade, only she may not [...]

This book kind of made me angry. I'll explain. The problem is that it's centered around a really interesting and comprehensively drawn ghost mythology. It made sense in context of the story, it was internally consistent, and it was a really cool idea. I loved the way Smith-Ready had the world remake itself around ghosts that everyone under the age of sixteen can see. How a ghost can testify in a wrongful death case when he's the victim? That's pretty cool.And most of the characters are complex a [...]

Wow. Just wow! Shade is a whirlwind of emotions in one book. Love. Is all I can say.Shade starts off with Aura, who since the shift can see ghosts. Aura is special though, she was first. That doesn't stop her life though, or her love for her amazing, sexy, singer boyfriend Logan. So when Logan tragically dies she's thinks it's all over, until she realizes that Logan is still with her in ghost form. As more mysteries unravel, she becomes close to Zachary, a green eyed, Scottish cutie. Together th [...]

This song says so much about Logan and Aurora's relationship.Merged review:This one was interesting. I think the ghost probably scared Aurora more than she wanted to admit, there were some harsh truths in the words.Merged review:I really loved this book, for me it didn't really read as a YA/Teen book as the subject matter is pretty weighty. What I found most intriguing about this book was the world and the way it was set up. In this world, something happened during the winter solstice 16 years a [...]

Shade is one hauntingly awesome debut that will leave you craving the sequel as soon as the last page is read.I don't really know what to say I mean it was fabulous, it was one of those 'wow' reads. Where you don't see the last page coming because you just want it to keep on going where you read the last sentence and immediately need the next novel 'wow'I really think Shade, as a paranormal novel, is going to stand out among the throngs of vampire, werewolf, and angel books. Although this isn't [...]

Such a sweet story. And on a "hot boy" notea rocker and a Scot? Whew!!!

Like everyone born after the Shift Aura can see ghosts - everywhere she goes there are ghosts trying to talk to her, asking her to do things for them. All she has ever wanted is for them to leave her alone - that is until her boyfriend Logan dies. She'd rather have Logan's ghost in her life than lose Logan completely but it isn't easy having a boyfriend who you can't touch - can't kiss. Then Aura meets Zachary, a new student at her school who has been assigned to help her with her history projec [...]

5 Stars - I’ve been trying to write this review for a couple days now and the words just don’t want to come to me. Not because this book was bad, it was far from it. It was amazing. It’s not often that I find a book that I love a much as this one – examples of books that fall in this same category for me would be Shiver, The Twilight Saga and handful of other books out there. From the dark, beautiful and mysterious cover to the fact that anyone born post Shift can see and talk to ghosts [...]

In One Word ~ OverwhelmingHonestly, one word could never do SHADE justice. It was also: Astonishing, Shattering, Breathtaking, Beautiful, Funny, and Sad. Does that just about cover it? Not a chance.I debated writing this review. In some weird way, I wanted to take SHADE and the emotions it drug through me and just hold them tightly to myself, keep it private. Mine. But then I thought about the massive, and I mean MASSIVE amount of conversation that was started on Twitter with me simply saying th [...]

I have been told to read this book a million times! I kept meaning to but then it kept getting pushed back. I am so glad I finally buckled down and got it. I seriously balled my eyes out! What an emotional roller coaster!Everyone born after the Shift can see ghosts. Aura was born one minute after the Shift, about sixteen years ago. Aura works for her aunt helping out with ghost rights but she is rather annoyed by ghosts. She wishes she could end the Shift. But when Logan, her boyfriend and the l [...]

Rating: 4.5Jeri jumping jacks, this book was awesome!I picked it up in recommendation without knowing what to expect. To be honest, neither the cover nor synopsis really caught my eye. But I just adored it. From the very first page, Shade sucked me into a fascinating world where every child born after the Shift (which occurred sixteen years ago) could see the violet ghosts of those unable to pass on. Every little detail was amazing and believable! Jeri Smith-Ready managed to create one of the mo [...]

Shade is an exciting paranormal read that'll sweep readers off their feet with a heated love triangle with a chilling--although sometimes confusing--plot. The characters are relatable without being generic. Smith-Ready provides readers with a winding road of twists and turns that satisfies the readers' hunger for a thrilling mystery.The world that Shade happens in, is completely different to what we are used to. There, many things that are impossible for us are made believable in Shade's setting [...]

Shade was absolutely fantastic! I had a feeling I would love it before I even cracked it open; in fact, I was so convinced that I bought the book without even reading the first page. (Of course, I did have some reason for thinking this---I'd seen that a few bloggers that enjoyed Shadow Hills had also really liked Shade. I figured they must have impeccable taste. ;D I kid. Sort of.) Luckily, my instincts proved to be correct. As soon as I started reading Shade I was enthralled and ripped right th [...]

Unexpectedly fun, with a unique paranormal mythology. Looking forward to seeing what happens next!

This review is also available over at my blog.________________________Finally, a book that's hyped for a reason. Kind of.Going into this book, I didn't expect to be that impressed. The reviews were pretty mixed and it just didn't seem all that interesting. But, I always give into hype and I consider this series to be one of the most hyped YA series' out there, so I gave it a shot. It turned out to be a very entertaining read.In the world of this book, something happened several years ago called [...]

Read this review on my blog! --> Shade by Jeri Smith-ReadyShade was a book I saw on the shelves last year that I was not compelled to buy. I was just never curious enough about it. It wasn’t until this year, right before Shift (the second book in this series) was released that I noticed my fellow reader’s excitement. Then I bought it on sale, and there it sat, on my shelvesill not read. When I mentioned to Ginger of GReads! that I had Shade but hadn’t read it yet, she insisted I needed [...]

Wow. I’m just…wow. I loved this. It’s one of my favourite reads this year. Wow… can that be my review? Well, where to start then?Aura has been fighting with her boyfriend, Logan, since almost losing her virginity to him. She hopes to rectify things with him soon. His band, The Keeley Brothers, is scheduled to perform a show soon where two record execs from rival companies are rumoured to show. Aura plans to smooth things over with him that night and give herself to him. Everything seems [...]

You know when you start reading a good book and each page makes your heart race faster? You rush through a page just so you can turn it quickly to see what happens next? Then you have to turn back just to read it again and make sure you didn't miss anything? Well that is this book! I will say that it has been a while since I have read a book that made me feel so many different emotions at once. While reading this on my kindle I took notes along the way. Here is what I wrote "Full of romance, mys [...]

It was the big finale of the YA Crush Tournament (hosted by The YA Sisterhood) and Jace was up against someone I’ve never heard of before—a Scotsman named Zachary Moore. I was sure the win was already ours. I mean, it’s Jace we’re talking about, and we, Jace fans, love him as much as he loves Clary, if not even more. But what I believed would be an easy-peasy match, turned into an exciting and intense duel that made me really curious. Who is this guy that has so many devoted fans? I need [...]

I started this blog last December, but before that I was so busy with school that I wasn't really reading many blogs either. So I guess around that time the world was buzzing about this book, and oblivious me didn't know anything about it until I got an ARC copy of Shift (book 2). With so many great books in my reading pile I put the ARC aside and thought to myself, "if I don't get to it that's okay." NO definitely not okay!! I am so glad my twitter pals where talking about this book, because it [...]

Shade possesses all the qualities a good young adult paranormal book should have: a strong protagonist, an interesting premise, some suspense, and a touch (or in this case, a lot of touches) of romance.The book is about Aura, one of the many sixteen-year-old teens born after the Shift. The Shift marks when babies began to see ghosts, in the form of purple clouds. Once the ghosts become angered, they turn into violent shades with the capability of damaging anyone born post-Shift.On the night of h [...]

Everyone born after the shift can see ghosts. Aura is unique. She not only can see ghosts but she is their lifeline to the present. This is cool but at the same time it can have its annoying moments like…when ghost appear unexpected and demand your help…or having ghosts yell in your ear, never giving you a minute of peace. Of course, Aura would never trade any of this, when her boyfriend, Logan ends up dead. It is up to Aura to help Logan pass through to the other side. There is a new boy in [...]
