Don't Fear The Reaper Read Along: Week 2, Chapters 6-10

It's Week 2 of the Don't Fear The Reaper read-along, hosted this week by Lila @ Babbling About Books and Stuff. I'm a bit late with my answers this week *hides face* but here they are!

1. Shiny objects and old family stories are told in this chapter, including an old nickname for our dear Charley. What was the nickname her uncle Bob gave her when she was little? Do you have an old nickname from when you were a kid? You can share it, and if it's really embarrassing we won't mind. *wink*

Calamity! After Calamity Jane. I've had way too many nicknames but they are mostly variations of my name or have to do with my skinniness!

2. In this chapter we met someone. A really special guy named Rocket. Now, my memory is not what it used to be, and I just can't remember what makes him so special. Can you tell me what makes this particular ghost unique among all the others? And how about you? What can you do that makes you special? Anything? Jump on one foot for a really long time counts. *giggle*

Rocket's the record keeper of the dead. His ability gave me the chills! Especially when it came to the questions Charley wanted answered! Ah, Reyes. What are you? Um, I can't really think of anything that makes me special. I can bend all of my fingers backwards. Does that count? ;)

3. Charley is really *cough* not your ordinary girl. She does something that, well, there's no way around it. She named parts of her body and the names are... oh crap, I forgot. Just my luck. *sigh* But I'm sure you guys can say what part of her body she named and what the names were. And, since we are on the matter, have you ever named a part of your body? If so, what was it and what was the name? Come on, don't be shy. *wink+crooked smile*

Haha, she named her boobs Danger and Will Davidson! I haven't named any of my body parts! -__- I'd probably name my toes, if I ever felt like it.

4. We all have our little secrets. Things we don't tell anyone, not even our bff. Char (we became close :P ) is no different, but in this chapter she shared her little (big) secret (S) with her bff. What did you think about her reaction? What would be yours?

I thought her reaction was pretty sweet. It's a mark of a true friend, I guess! Charley is so lucky to have Cookie. I'd wonder if Charley was pulling my leg for more than a second if she told me her secret. Once I believed her, I would think the first part of her secret was pretty cool. And would be extra protective of her!

5. In this chapter, Char continues her heart-to-heart with her BFF and comes up with some theories about our fave badboy/possibly ghost. What do you think of it? Can it be? What do you think about him? Hot? Double chocolate hot? Super duper caramel chocolate cake with a cherry on top hot?

Ah, um, I read way beyond the tenth chapter this weekend! I absolutely cannot wait to finish this book and find out what Reyes is! And I definitely think he's beyond super double caramel chocolate cake with a cherry on the top hot!!!! I hope there's much much more to him in the books that follow First Grave on the Right as well!

That's all for today. I'm officially addicted to this book, you guys! ❤


  1. I've definitely never named a body part. LOL That would be kind of funny. I do want to read this book. I don't know when I'll be able to get to it, but it sounds fun.

  2. Haha "super double caramel chocolate cake with a cherry on the top hot!!!!" love this description!
    I really want to read this now :)

  3. Aww, haha! <3 I've never named my body parts, but that's just... er, unique that she named her body parts! :P And I'm glad that the heroine has true friend to help accepting her for the way she is! (whatever she is, because I haven't read the book yet! ;)) Anyway, this book sounds like so much fun, Ajoop! I think I should check this book out someday. <3 Love your answers, hun! :)

  4. Thanks for the giggle--still giggling. Oh, I'm such a girl sometimes. :-)
