Book Review: Hereafter By Tara Hudson

Title: Hereafter
Author: Tara Hudson
Publisher: HarperCollins

Summary: Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.

Review: Wow. Wow Wow. Three words that describe this novel. Hereafter is a beautifully written paranormal romance novel that never left my thoughts for DAYS. Tara Hudsons Ghostly love story is just a really heart breaking, sad and beautiful read that had me feeling every feeling mentioned in the English dictionary.

I love the fact that in this novel the paranormal “Character” isn't male like most Paranormal Romances I have read, and I found this really refreshing and exciting to read. I haven't come across many ghost paranormal romances novels that I have actually liked but I love this one. Why you ask? Well first lets start of with the characters. They are not at all two dimensional they all have the individuality and I can tell Tara has worked hard to make that show. Amelia. She is my favourite character in this novel. She's so strong even though she has to come to terms with her death and the weird things that are happening to her. Then there's Joshua the love interest for Amelia I really enjoyed his character and his lines in this novel “Do you see this beautiful girl in my arms? “Joshua threatened softly” “She's dead, too but I'm certainly touching her arn't I?” swoon indeed. Then there's Eli the evil guy who's come to cause trouble. Tara Hudson has made him wickedly awesome he defiantly will make you want to read on.

One of my favourite scenes that really set the romance in this novel for me was when Amelia and Joshua were in his bedroom. The way they spoke, Held and laughed with each other was really touching. I loved watching there relationship flourish into something beautiful. From the talking to the kissing to declaring their love for each other (kind of). I am sure that everyone that reads this will feel the same as I do. I loved this novel and truly cannot wait for the next instalment. I cannot wait to see what obstacles Amelia has to go through. Here after will be placed on my bookshelf with the books ill never forget. Read this novel and get goosebumps all over!
