Don't Fear The Reaper Read Along: Final Week, Chapters 16-21

It's the final week of the Don't Fear The Reaper read along and I've loved every minute of the read along! I got introduced to the awesomeness that is Charley Davidson and cannot wait to read the next book in the series ;) Week 4 is hosted by Heidi @ Rainy Day Ramblings!
1. One of my favorite aspects of this book are the witty snippets at the beginning of every chapter. I especially like the t shirt quotes. My favorites are:
Sarcasm. Only one of the services offered.
Do not disturb. Already there. 

What is the funniest t-shirt or bumper sticker you have encountered? What t-shirt saying best describes your personality?

I looved the fun quotes at the beginning of each chapter! Especially 'Do not disturb. Already there.' Haha! Some fun T-shirt sayings: I'm not as dumb as you look and A day without sunshine is like, you know, night. -Steve Martin!

This T-shirt is so me:

2. Charley is constantly helping ghosts throughout the book. Would you like to be able to talk to ghosts and bring closure to their loved ones? How would you feel about all the ghosts popping up at all times day or night? Would you like to have a ghost like Mr. Wong in your house?

I'd probably be a little freaked out if I run into ghosts all day and night. But who knows, maybe I'd get used to it! I love the idea of helping them get closure so that they can go into the light. Mr. Wong would be fun to have around... he's my favourite character (after Charley. And Reyes x_x) in the book! I would hope he crosses over eventually though!

3. Kim reveals some rather shocking and sad details about Reyes' past. Do you agree with her decision to adhere to her promise and not intervene? Would you be willing to keep your word and let a loved one die if it was their wish?

That is a scary and difficult question. I wouldn't want to be put in such a situation. I guess I'll truly know only if I were in such a situation and forced to act under such circumstances!

4. In Chapter 19 Charley confronts the bad guy and finds herself in yet another situation where she gets her ass kicked. Do you like the fact that Charley consistently ends up getting her butt handed to her? What are your overall thoughts on Charley?

Charley is kickass! I love how she doesn't always come out from fights unscathed. Yet she has so much spirit and is so snarky. I am always entertained by her commentary and way of doing things... Charley's too cool for anyone! xD

5. Chapter 20 is a big, hot, smoking chapter. We finally get some answers on Reyes. Does the revelation change your opinion of him? Do you think he can overcome his "nature" and be a good person or is Charley in big trouble?

The revelation explained a lot of things. At the same time, it never altered my perception of Reyes. Of course, I'm aware of Garrett um, existing. I wonder what will happen between Garrett and Charley as much as I wonder about Charley and Reyes. I believe Reyes is by nature a good person, despite his origins and everything.

6. Did you enjoy this book? Will you be continuing the series?

HECK YES. I loved this book! It was an amazing and breezy read! I cannot wait to read the next book! It's a fun and light series... exactly what I need at the moment!


  1. OMG! I NEED that shirt. There are so many out there, I just need and that is also me as well. LOL

    Well, I think that Charley should go for Garrett... I'll take Reyes off her hands for her... ;D

  2. I love the shirt in the pic. Got to get me one of those :)

  3. You can take Reyes and I'll take Garrett off your hands. I think that poor guy needs some love. :)

  4. That shirt is funny! I think I would be scared of ghosts but like Charley eventually I'd probably just get use to it. Love Garrett and Reyes. Reyes seems like trouble though.

  5. It is funny people either adore Mr. Wong like you and me or he creeps them out. He is awesome IMO. I love that t shirt too funny. So glad you loved the book and the read along! It was so fun to have you along!

  6. I love that t-shirt and I really need to pick up this series. Great to see you all enjoyed it. :)
