Book Recommendation Tuesday 7/1/2014


Goodreads Summary: Cendall, history’s first female Grim Reaper, has until her eighteenth birthday to prove she’s worthy of the role. The only obstacle in her way are those pesky Guardian Angels who protect human souls, but Cendall is certain she can handle any Guardian who gets in her way.
However, nothing could have prepared Cendall for Lacie—a soul that is protected by multiple Guardians, wanted by Demons, and, most startling of all, can see Cendall.

Cendall uses every trick in the book to try and slip past Lacie’s Guardians and collect her soul, but a Demon interferes at the last moment. In the chaos, Cendall accidently saves Lacie’s soul, along with one of the injured Guardians. Realizing Cendall fears termination for her mistake, the Guardian blackmails her with an offer she can’t refuse: in exchange for his silence, Cendall must keep Lacie’s soul safe from the Demon, until he recovers from his injuries. Cendall agrees—with the intention of checking Lacie’s soul off her list, the instant the Guardian is healed. But as the three of them are forced to work together, Cendall begins to question why Lacie is wanted by the Demons and if her name actually belonged on Cendall’s list in the first place.

Book Recommendation:

This is a neat little story about a Grim Reaper named Cendall, who is the first ever female Grim Reaper. I like this because it takes on a different kind of paranormal being. It's not vampires, werewolves, or zombies. It's grim reapers. Candice Burnett creates a fascinating world, and Cendall is an unyielding female character. I gave it five stars and added it to my favorites shelf on Goodreads. I enjoyed this book, and highly recommend it to anyone who likes Paranormal. I might have to read this one again soon. It's going to be a great series to read when the rest of the books come out.

So that's what I got for this week. What do you recommend on this beautiful Tuesday afternoon?

  1. I recommend Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer. For anyone who doesn't know, it is about a young boy named Oskar whose father is killed in the 9/11 attacks. After the tragedy, he finds a key in an envelope hidden inside a vase in his father's closet. The only thing the envelope says is "black". This prompts Oskar to go on an adventure throughout New York City to find what this mysterious key might open. It is heart wrenching and emotional. Oskar learns more about himself and makes new friends. Give it a try. :)
