PDF NEW [My Last Kiss]
Update 122514 My Last Kiss was chosen as one of Badass Book Reviews favorite Young AdultNew Adult Romance books of 2014 Read all about it hereSo I am wavering between 4 and 5 stars for this excellent debut novel by author Bethany Neal This is a cross between a ghost story and a murder mystery with a young adult slant It is a powerful story told from the point of view of the main character Cassidy who at 17 died The circumstances around her death are iffy the police think it was a suicide Cassidy comes back as a ghost and follows her circle of friends to try to remember what happened the night she died Poor Cassidy can t remember how she ended up dead and who was around her The only person able to see Cassidy s ghost was her boyfriend Ethan This being a ghost thing sucks If I don t figure out things soon I m converting to poltergeist The cast of characters and suspects is large and it was kind of fun trying to piece together the clues as to who killed Cassidy I was oking with another reviewer that we needed a large whiteboard complete with photos of each character and a timeline in order to keep all the information straight Keep in mind the story is told from Cassidy s point of view and her friends seem to be hiding things It seems everyone I know holds captive some piece of my past I want them no matter how much they ll hurt They re mine and I deserve to hold them My Last Kiss was an intriguing book full of neat twists and turns It was a lot of fun to read and I d recommend it to people looking for a young adult mystery I won this book in a Goodreads Firstreads giveaway Believe it or not I actually do hate writing negative reviews especially when a book has been kindly provided to me expressly for the purpose of writing said reviewBut I hate lying than I hate negativity so here we goUsually I start out with a lovely flowy description of the plot However I think I can sum that up in Cezanne and Provence: The Painter in His Culture just one sentence So here we goA girl cheats on her boyfriend with a pothead ends up dead everyone thinks it s suicide she thinks it was murder she stays around as some kind of ghost figure and tries to solve her alleged murder then tries to make out make up with her boyfriend tooThat s itSo why the one starMostly it s because I hate all of the characters Every single one of themLet s start with the main character Cassidy She sust not the brightest bulb in the lamp if you catch my drift She s flighty both in life and death supposedly focusing on solving a murder except she really spends time daydreaming about kissing her boyfriend and trying to find a way to get him back even though she s dead She s melodramatic immature and incredibly slow to catch on to every blatant hint thrown her way She s so unlikeable that I as a reader had a hard time trying to even CARE who killed her or whyNow we can move on to Ethan the boyfriend What is there to even say about him NOTHING He s unremarkable boring and unmemorable #I had to stop and look up his name before even writing about him That s how little I could #had to stop and look up his name before even writing about him That s how little I could about himThen there is Caleb the pothead Cassidy thinks she cheated on Ethan with Caleb and in her pseudo attempts at crime solving she really doesn t her pseudo attempts at crime solving she really doesn t a single positive uality about the guy that would make me even believe she d cheat on her random boyfriend with this other random dude She thinks Caleb may have killed her although the only memorable flashback she even describes is the one where lover boy Caleb gave her a marijuana brownie before she fell off a bridge and diedDrew who is Ethan s best friend and Cassidy s best friend s boyfriend Again not one single positive uality is given to Drew who is described mostly as a raging psychopath Copy and paste that description for the other friend whose name I already forgot Those two were pretty much interchangeable to me throughout the storyAnd then Cassidy s best friends Apparently Cassidy has lousy taste not only in men but in friends as well Aimee at least seems to care that her friend is dead Besides the hints of ambivalence from Ethan I m pretty sure that nobody else in the book including her friends and family even CARE that Cassidy is dead I m not even sure that Cassidy s lingering ghost spirit cares that she is dead beyond the fact that she can no longer kiss boys And then the other alleged best friend Madison Can someone REALLY be completely oblivious to the fact that the person they see for hours every single day is a psychopathic stalker Cassidy vaguely considers that her best friends may have played a role in her death although again she seems concerned with daydreaming about kissing Ethan than about considering why she was surrounded by such a bunch of Chicago's Urban Nature: A Guide to the City's Architecture + Landscape juvenile delinuentsBy the end in all honesty I couldn t care less why Cassidy died or who was involved All of her friends were idiots and nothing in the story seemed believeable enough to feel the least bit relatable or interesting And oh the melodrama I get that teenagers are full of raging hormones and confusion and despair but murdering people over crushes or kisses or relationships that won t last beyond graduation Good griefIn trying to decide the intended audience for My Last Kiss I can only think that this would be appealing to younger teenage girls with low expectations of men friends and literature I really enjoyed the premise of the story I think but the horrific cast of characters killed it for me in the end Brilliant Plot This is by far one of the most brilliant plots I have read in a long time It provided me something very different from the usual young adult novels which basically revolve around a couple and their love chronicles sometimes going too mushy or sometimes mixed and wrapped up with paranormal elements My last kiss is not devoid of romance heartbreak and other essential young adult stuffs but what makes it interesting is the wicked plot line thatust gets and intense as it proceeds. Cassidy Haines ricorda perfettamente il suo primo bacio A darglielo era stato il suo grande a Ethan Keys durante la prima estate del liceo Invece il ricordo del suo ultimo bacio – alla festa per il suo diciassettesimo compleanno la sera della sua morte – è molto confu. ,

And is a pure thriller addiction I love the way how the plot is developed and Communism just when you think ok now I get it and make conclusions it goes on to an entirely different track I m in love with the ending of this book in most cases by last pages all the energy and elements are worn out but in this case the last couple of pages is where your brain gets put into action Things are moving at rapid speed and no it does not confuses you or something but for me it was like being bombarded with surprise elements one after another and that made me shout out loud to the author for gripping me like an addict to the book especially with its endingThe only problem with the book is its language and flow of narration which I believe is kind of choppy because there were certain parts which kind of was not self explanatory like ramblings with no head and tails but I have still got Goosebumps from the ending of the book The book has one of the best plots I have come across especially for a young adult novel and what is the best part of the plot is its ending which was something that I enjoyed most out of everything in the book but there is also problem with the flow of narration as sometimes it seems to be lacking head and tail how was it Started off fine but got progressively convoluted and ethically messed up as the story went on Also SO annoying that a number of the characters also had nicknames and some of them had than one Sheesh A thrilling story of love and betrayal where a teenage girl must not only face her actions in her former life but discover which of her friends was her killer A bittersweet contemporary romance that had me in tears in the final pages Bell Book Candle My Last Kiss ReviewI swear this should be a cautionary tale for those who cheat right beside Fatal Attraction This is another book I randomly came upon while up to no good with my friend in Barnes and Noble Don t ask don t tell I must ve skimmed the synopsis on back because if I had realized how much of a tearerker was I might not have bought it I hate in a good way books that make me cryThis was uite the emotional rollercoaster of a book I m not going to lie I was in tears The mystery of Cassidy s the protagonist death was indeed puzzling As I have said before I am very good at guessing how a bookmovie will end but I didn t see that ending coming and I guessed at least 50 times I m not pulling you guys leg either The mystery was off the charts and there was a bit of suspense thrown in there as well The best and my most favorite part wasdrum roll the charactersI m a character driven person characters and how they are written or developed can make or break a book for me The depth and development of these characters was off the charts You will discover that there is than meets the eye and nothing is what it seems with each one of them I loved the flaws Cassidy had in which you realize she is ust as flawed as the rest of us And EthanOh my goodness it was both endearing and heartbreaking seeing the connection he and Cassidy possessed especially since they didn t exactly get the HEA we readers love to seeThe pain you see everyone going through in reaction to Cassidy s death broke my heart I couldn t imagine how my mom would feel Or Cassidy living in limbo like she was is a major drag It also goes to show that not all friends are your real friends You have to be careful with backstabbers literally and figuratively None the less this was a great story and the ending was beautiful However I m still trying to figure out if was beautiful However I m still trying to figure
out if people responsible for Cassidy s death are going to ail itif people responsible for Cassidy s death are going to Catholics, Anglicans, and Puritans jail it t exactly clear And it was slow torture watching Cassidy make her mistakes that would inevitably lead to her death What a shame But on the bright sideat least there weren t any boiled bunnies anywhere See there IS a silver lining Aren t ghosts supposed to have some sort of agenda I really hope mine isn t to haunt my boyfriend s bedroom That is way too clich d Why didn t you stay with your body he finally asksI meet his eyes and the only thing I want to say is I came back to be with you I stayed for you Sure you could compare this to The Lovely Bones in the same way that you could compare Twilight to Bram Stoker s Dracula It s pretty much the same thing really with a few minor differences The few minor differences being1 Red tunas Ok fine the technical term for a misleading clue ia a red herring but the clues in this book are so fucking obvious and dumb and loud that I ve coined a new term for it Hence red tuna2 This ghost is even of a vapid idiot than the one in The Lovely Bones3 This ghost gets into one bloody painful mess of a love triangle between the most wonderfulest boyfriend ever whoust doesn t geeeeeeeeeet her maaaaaan and a pothead stoner with a heart of gold4 Family Lol Family Screw family it s all about friends y all She has a sister A brother A family Oh yeah yeah she does She mentions them sometimes Mostly the fact that her mom is a huge raging psychotic bitch5 The dumbest friends ever in fact the most vapid group of high schoolers who ever existed6 There is not a single truly likeable character in the book I m dead fucking serious Her classmates are morons without sympathy #HER FAMILY PRETTY MUCH IGNORE ONE #family pretty much ignore one when if they re mentioned at allReally there s not much introspection There s no literary value There is an idiot of a girl who gets to spend time with her boyfriend while fighting off the feelings for another guywhile she s a ghost Don t Just don tThe Summary I think I m supposed to do something while I m here It doesn t make any sense that I d be given a free pass to haunt about and chill with my boyfriend 17 year old Cassidy is dead How does everyone think she died Well I heard some guys saying she tried to go skinny dipping in the river and froze which is downright ignorant to suggest Then Kristy London started telling everyone So Da uel momento Cassidy è rimasta sospesa tra il mondo dei vivi e uello dei defunti con il doloroso sospetto che la sua prematura fine non sia dovuta a un suicidio come tutti credono ma a un omicidio Eppure non riesce a ricordare nulla della settimana precedente alla su.
