Suze is finally feeling like she can call her new place of residents her peaceful home. Well, if peaceful means being bothered by a new ghost who needs help every five seconds. But Suze doesn't mind, she likes helping out. That's true until the ghosts of deceased Alumnae from her new high school decide to show up and wreak havoc on one of their old classmates. This will be a class reunion Suze and the rest of the city will never forget. Will Suze be able to stop them before they force another person to join their ghostly crew? And will she ever figure out what her and Jesse's relationship really is? Or will she be the next to join the ghostly gang?

A Book Lovers Review ~ HOTTER Than Summer Boys Challenge:
Caleb

My Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ 5/5

My Review

Why?: The reason I think Caleb is hotter than summer is because for one he is described as being pretty much irresistible ;). He is described as being extremely good looking and it also doesn't hurt that he is loaded. He is very smart and in college currently. He doesn't crowd Maggie, either. He gives her her space and encourages her to continue on with schooling. He is very loving and caring and isn't afraid to show his affection for Maggie in public. He would do anything to keep her happy and I love that. He is a true romantic and a girls dream guy!
Falling For YA ~ Cover Love Challenge
 To me summer is from May-September so here are my pics of favorite covers on books that were released this summer =D


Photo Challenge:
Here are the places I read =D
In my cozy bed...

On the couch with my kitty =D

Not in the pool, but sitting on the ladder with my feet in =)

In my cozy hammock while watching my little cousin swim.

On my patio with my cute boyfriend =D

And lastly in my home library. There is spare bed up here and laid on that and read sometimes, but my little brother was sleeping on it so I didn't want to put him on here without his consent (lol) and took a picture of the office area of the library.
