On Christmas Eve five years ago, Holly was visited by three ghosts who showed her how selfish and spoiled she'd become. They tried to convince her to mend her ways.
She didn't.
And then she died.
Now she's stuck working for the top-secret company Project Scrooge--as the latest Ghost of Christmas Past.
Every year, they save another miserly grouch. Every year, Holly stays frozen at seventeen while her family and friends go on living without her. So far, Holly's afterlife has been miserable.
But this year, everything is about to change. . . .

Why I'm waiting on The Afterlife of Holly Chase this Wednesday: This book sounds so interesting and like the perfect holiday read!  While it comes out soon (next week!!) I'll probably save it until around Christmas time when the story seems to take place.  Also, the cover is GORGEOUS! I'm really enjoying this book cover trend where they have the black background with minimalist design.  

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?  Are you looking forward to this book?  Do you think you'll read it when it comes out or wait for the holidays?  Let me know in the comments below and leave me a link to your posts!


  1. This book sounds so good and like the perfect holiday read!

    PS. I absolutely LOVE your blog design - it's so cute!

    1. Right?! I can't wait to curl up with with some and some hot chocolate!

      Thanks so much and thanks for stopping by!

  2. I love the cover of this book! This type of design really appeals to me. I've not read any of Hand's solo projects but this sounds like a good place to start. I love holiday books. :D Great choice, Ashtyn!

    1. These types of book covers are so gorgeous! They really appeal to me, too :) I hope you get the chance to read it and love it!

      Thanks for stopping by, Alyssa!

  3. I cannot wait until this one comes out! Though, just like you, I'm waiting more towards Christmastime to actually read it. I really enjoyed Cynthia Hand's Unearthly series so I'm excited to see what she had in store with this one. Happy reading!

    1. I think there will be a lot of people holding off until Christmas; it just sounds so perfect to read it cuddled up by a lit Christmas tree! I hope it's as good as we're expecting!!

      Thanks for stopping by, Jeanna!
