[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Crazy Ex-Ghoulfriend

Urban Fantasy Author Angela Roquet is a great big weirdo.
She collects Danger Girl comic books, owls, skulls, and random craft supplies. She no longer collects paperback books, because she can’t fit any more in her office, however she does collect ebooks. She has an unhealthy obsession with television shows created by Joss Whedon and fantasizes about him directing television or film versions of her novels. Angela’s favorite book/movie is The Wizard of Oz. She likes a little coffee in her cream, and her favorite food is sushi, even though it’s takes her FOREVER to make. Angela is a peace loving, tree hugging hippy who tries to buy organic and local as often as possible. She’s a fan of renewable energy sources, marriage equality, and religious tolerance. As long as whatever you’re doing isn’t hurting anyone, she’s a fan of you, too. Angela lives in Sedalia, Missouri with her husband and son. When she’s not swearing at the keyboard, she enjoys painting, goofing off with her family and friends, and reading books that raise eyebrows. 

You can find Angela online at www.angelaroquet.com, on Facebook, on Twitter, and on GoodReads.

Crazy Ex-Ghoulfriend
by Angela Roquet

Janie Parker is in love with the boy next door, but he's dating Miss Popular. That is, until she wraps her car around a tree and bites the dust. Just when things settle down and Janie thinks that she might have a shot at going to prom with the boy next door, Miss Popular comes back from the grave, and she's one crazy ex-ghoulfriend.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:
*eARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review

Have I mentioned that I love Angela Roquet's writing? Yeah, well I do... Her Lana Harvey series is one of my absolute favorites, and when I found out that she had written a paranormal YA I was giddy with anticipation.

Crazy Ex-Ghoulfriend is a witty and entertaining tale that will have you suffering flashbacks to high school and feeling like you're right there with Janie, Wayne and the rest of the crew. I couldn't put the book down, and I don't think you will be able to either.

Told in such a way that many life lessons can be learned without even realizing you're being taught them(and thus making it a perfect young adult read), Angela spins a story that's the perfect mix of real and fantasy, wit and drama, action and surprise.

I thoroughly enjoyed Crazy Ex-Ghoulfriend and highly recommend it for Young Adult readers, as well as not-so-young-adults such as myself who enjoy a beautifully written and entertaining Para-YA read without the angst and messy love triangle. :)
