It makes you hope that maybe this is what’ll be there on the other side. This is such a different story, an interesting and fascinating view of what death could be like and dealing with change and letting go.
Now I didn’t like this book, but I can’t hate it. I was like this: Mar 29, Sesana rated it liked it Shelves: It shows the beauty of how important the little things can be, how important things people take for granted everyday can be, whether it’s a first kiss, a charm bracelet, or even physics homework, it’s what happens because of these things, what happens around these things that makes this story come to life, in a way that Maddy can’t anymore.
Like Madison, I have plenty of possessions that I’ve lost over the years and would love to know what happened to them.
Bottom Line Eveafter Everafter’s a hopeful glimpse into what the afterlife could be. Even for a short book, it felt meandering, wandering from one memory to the next without any sort of attempt to build a story.

In fact, I’d say that Huntley has a knack for writing relationships in general. Sep 19, A. Hardcoverpages. I’ve had hnutley for awhile, but I’m paring down my YA selection, so I decided to finally read it. This is a book I will talk about to anyone who will listen, because it just makes you think: For such a short book, I just struggled.
The epilogue was a very nice touch though. This girl, Maddy just died and went to “IS” Its just this random place which is really dark and then theres some shiny bright light in the corner and then shes freaking out, like duh what do you expect, lol, then she sees her stuffs, which she lost and had meaning indirectly in her life and then every-time she touches them, she went to those moments and experience them, again, she finds out how she died and goes to the light thingy in the end and then, the end.
Humor and sadness weave in and out. Well, I chewed this one up and spit it out! Then we follow Maddy and Gabe as they fall in love.
Creepy, but good creepy!! But she does know this – she is dead. Mar 01, Lexie Layman rated it really liked it Shelves: The story weaves and lingers in a good way. I was afraid the author was going to pull one of those cheesy Happily Ever After endings, which wouldn’t have fit the book at ALL.

I’m not trying to get all religious on you. The epilogue will leave you with the perfect sense of closure with a hint of regret for the final character in the book.
I also wish everwfter it hadn’t been as depressing and pro-death as it was. The author does put in life messages about, the afterlife and how you should live and enjoy fhe life when you are alive, but all that doesn’t come in until the very end so it doesn’t bog down the story and it isn’t heavy handed.
It’s different than anything I’ve ever read before, and I’ll never forget it.
She doesn’t know how she died, or where she is, or even who she is at first. But, I hated her epilouge!!!!
The format is unusual. Not going to spoil anything but what I loved about it was the ending. It wrapped up too abruptly. Throughout the book she shares childhood memories, and continuously revisits a memory from each year of her lif The Everafter was a peculiar amyy exciting read that kept me fascinated with the characters. The dialog, too, made sense for these characters.
Trust me, the story was flat, I really had a hard time finding the plot interesting, It was mixed together quickly with not a lot hujtley detail, there were no emotions in me, the author did not explore the topic enough, it was a slow build, with secondary characters that never become fully fleshed out, The Everafter doesn’t pack the emotional punch of similar not-quite-dead titles Elsewhere or If I Stay did.
Ich werde die Autorin aber im Auge behalten und freue mich auf mehr von ihr.
Th Immediately after I picked up this book, I had a good feeling. The reason all of this is depressing is because it makes you question the evedafter of living if everyone is so happy in death.
Nothing against the main character, Madison, but she’s kind of boring to read about. It was this concept that got me to read this book. She’s not a body or a person but more like a ball of energy. I really enjoyed reading about Madison, and following hyntley paranormal yet romantic story. After harping evfrafter how attached Madison is to objects I don’t see the journey that teaches her to let go or anything. Why was another ghost apologizing to Maddy? I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in romance, or those who like reading different points of views from different characters types of reads.
