First Lines...

"The wierdest part about dying is that nothing really changed.

I mean, you'd expect a big change, right? Because dying--well, let's face it, it's pretty dramatic stuff. They write songs about it, books and screenplays too. Heck, it's even a major theme on Saturday morning cartoons. But the thing is, it's nothing like you see on TV."

..."First Lines", Chapter 2, Radiance by Alyson Noel (Release date: Aug. 31st)

Those lines make me really want to read the book.

Hi Tea and Dar!
I'll be reading this YA novel this weekend and am so looking forward to it! It's about young Riley Bloom finding out that "the afterlife isn't just an eternity of leisure." and is assigned the job of Soul Catcher. The cover is beautiful as well, with a scene of Riley and her dog (who also crossed over) in a beautiful field near "the bridge". Stop back to read the review next week!
