Dont fear the reaper read-a-long - Final Week

It is the final week of this great read-a-long. I really enjoyed re-reading this book because I am a huge fan of this series. It was really awesome reading answers from other bloggers participating and to see how they enjoyed this book. 

This Week's Questions:

1. One of my favorite aspects of this book are the witty snippets at the beginning of every chapter. I especially like the t shirt quotes. My favorites are:
Sarcasm. Only one of the services offered.
Do not disturb. Already there.
What is the funniest t-shirt or bumper sticker you have encountered? What t-shirt saying best describes your personality?
My favorites from this book were: "You know you have ADD when Look A chicken !"
“Genius has it's limitations. Insanity... not so much "
“I'd have a longer attention span if there weren't so many shiny things. "

The t-shirt saying that could describe me would be: " I stopped fighting my inner demons. We´re on the same side now."

2. Charley is constantly helping ghosts throughout the book. Would you like to be able to talk to ghosts and bring closure to their loved ones? How would you feel about all the ghosts popping up at all times day or night? Would you like to have a ghost like Mr. Wong in your house?

I think what Charley does is amazing. Who wouldnt want to help people find closure? I guess it can get irritating having all those departed around all the time but I think in the end would be worth it. So yes, I would like to be able to talk to ghosts. I dont know if having a permanent guest like Mr. Wong would be comfortable, maybe if he/ she could talk?

3. Kim reveals some rather shocking and sad details about Reyes' past. Do you agree with her decision to adhere to her promise and not intervene? Would you be willing to keep your word and let a loved one die if it was their wish?

I really dont know about this one. With my temper, I guess I would fight for the person til the end no matter the conequences.

4. In Chapter 19 Charley confronts the bad guy and finds herself in yet another situation where she gets her ass kicked. Do you like the fact that Charley consistently ends up getting her butt handed to her? What are your overall thoughts on Charley?

I think she is a kick-ass heroine although it is her ass that often gets kicked but she is always prepared to help. I like how funny she is, how kind and generous. One of the best characters I ever had the privilege to read about.

5. Chapter 20 is a big, hot, smoking chapter. We finally get some answers on Reyes. Does the revelation change your opinion of him? Do you think he can overcome his "nature" and be a good person or is Charley in big trouble?

Since I read the first 3 books I know a bit more about him and I have to say he is very frustrating and he makes big mistakes but in the end, I think he really loves Charley. I think that is all that matters.
6. Did you enjoy this book? Will you be continuing the series?

Since this is one of my favorite series i really loved re-reading it. I am really excited for October when I will finally get to read the 4th book, which I believe will be the best so far.

  1. I'm curious to see what his big screw ups are! It's gotta be hard to be on your best behavior when you are the son of Satan and all. LOL!

  2. " I stopped fighting my inner demons. We´re on the same side now." LOL I love that one!!! I knew Reyes would be trouble. I like Garrett. I would hate having ghosts pop up in the shower but I would like helping them move on.

  3. That inner demon quote was great! Darynda answers a question about Reyes next week so watch for it! Yes, Charley is one of my new fav female leads! Thank you for being a part of the read along!
