This week's prompt:
Recommend A... Book You Read This Year

Spirit and Dust by Rosemary Clement-Moore
Website | Twitter | Facebook

Delacorte Books for Young Readers, 387 pages
Series: Goodnight Family #2
Release Date: May 14, 2013

Daisy Goodnight can speak to the dead. It’s not the result of a head injury or some near-death experience. She was just born that way. And she’s really good at it. Good enough to help the police solve the occasional homicide.

But helping the local authorities clear cold cases is one thing. Being whisked out of chemistry class by the FBI and flown to the scene of a murder/kidnapping in Minnesota? That’s the real deal.

Before the promotion can go to Daisy’s head, she’s up to her neck in trouble. The spirits are talking, and they’re terrified. There’s a real living girl in danger. And when Daisy is kidnapped by a crime boss with no scruples about using magic—and Daisy—to get what he wants, it looks like hers is the next soul on the line.

To start off I have to say that you do NOT have to read book one, Texas Gothic, to understand this book. I didn't even know this was a companion until after.

One thing the summary doesn't hint at is that this book is FUNNY. I was not expecting to laugh as hard as I did. Daisy is one of the sassiest characters I've read so far, and I loved it. Spirit and Dust was not as serious as it sounded, and was definitely an entertaining book. There's more to this book than the blurb lets on. I would even recommend this to people who aren't fans of the paranormal.

What book did you read this year that you'd recommend?
Join me next week in the new year for

  1. There is no definition of beauty, but when you can see someone's spirit coming through, something unexplainable, that's beautiful to me.
