Me on Waiting on Wednesday (112)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: Life After Theft
Author: Aprilynne Pike
Release Date: April 30, 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen (HarperCollins imprint)

From Goodreads:

Moving to a new high school sucks. Especially a rich-kid private school. With uniforms. But nothing is worse than finding out the first girl you meet is dead. And a klepto.

No one can see or hear Kimberlee except Jeff, so--in hopes of bringing an end to the snarkiest haunting in history--he agrees to help her complete her "unfinished business." But when the enmity between Kimberlee and Jeff's new crush, Sera, manages to continue posthumously, Jeff wonders if he's made the right choice.

Clash meets sass in this uproarious modern-day retelling of Baroness Orczy's The Scarlet Pimpernel.


The first book by an author after their debut series is often interesting. You've been with them in one world for multiple books, but then there's something completely different and new and the same characters aren't around anymore. Still, I've enjoyed Aprilynne's past series about faeries and this new book also sounds like fun. :)

  1. I didn't really like the Wings series (actually who am I kidding, I despised it), but I do like contemporary/paranormal and I think it might be interesting to compare her radically different novels. Great pick!
