Last night Sarah was a bridesmaid, dressed in a hideous mango chiffon. Today she wakes up dead at the Mall of America. This is where the universe sends teenagers who were murdered. In fact most malls are haunted. The living don't notice it, what with all the bright lights, sales, and free samples. The dead just pass through them while finishing up the business of their former lives.

If you have the romance package go ahead and get the book, if not, dont waste your money/credits on this one.
If you can pass the narrator annoying high and whining voice the story is actually not that bad, its another take on the after life, its not the best written book ever and Im sure its not gonna be nominated for any awards but it was ok. It does get a bit repetitive at times.
No spoiler: Its a 16 y/o girl who dies and she wakes up at a mall like place, there is a death coach that explains this place is where she needs to stay to fix her unfinished business, girl meets a cute boy, boy likes her back, they need to work their unsolved issues, its not allowed to date at "the mall", you get the idea.

Gideon Frayne has spent his whole working life as a policeman in the village of Dark on Bodmin Moor. His first missing-child case is eating him alive. When his own boss sends in a psychic to help with the case, he's gutted - he's a level-headed copper who doesn't believe in such things, and he can't help but think that the arrival of clairvoyant Lee Tyack is a comment on his failure to find the little girl. But Lee is hard to hate, no matter how Gideon tries. At first Lee's insights into the case make no sense, but he seems to have a window straight into Gideon's heart.

Its weird but I just couldnt follow the story, I kept rewinding to listen again and again because I kept getting lost, its not that its a complicated story, I think its the narrator and how the story flows it just makes my mind wonder somewhere else.
Also reading other comments I found this is a gay love story just FYI. Im not sure I got there (then again I might of and just missed it)

Where does a moderately popular internet star who never leaves her house look for potential suitors? Online. Tinder, Bumble, Match.com, OkCupid - I tried them all. My 31-year-old self clicked and swiped her little heart out, leading to more dates than I could count, and more disappointment than I was prepared for. Maybe you can relate. Maybe you know all too well the perils of modern dating.

I've been following her YouTube channel for quite a while now, even before she got together with Milosh, I saw the vlogs with him, I saw her pregnant and the vlogs of the 3 of them.
I watched when she explained she was separating and I thought he might've cheated on her, but I never imagined all of this.
This is not the best book of 2018 nor the best of memoirs but its the way she chose to explain her story.
Either if you are a fan or not I really suggest you to read it, there were so many lies and weirdness she didnt see that its scary.
Im scared that this really could happen to anyone.

The story was ok, but the main character is just so weak and gets pushed by everyone, also I really didnt see the point of including the whole Amish thing I dont think the story needed it.
I think this is a series but I wont be reading the rest.

Shane Dawson has always been an open book. From his first YouTube vlog back in 2008 to his feature film debut Not Cool to a cover story in Variety magazine, Shane has documented his life pre-tty thoroughly. We've seen awkward and adorable Q&As with his mom, weight-loss center drama, love life details, and the all-important haircut reveal. We've seen his hilarious spoofs of Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, and Sarah Palin. His music videos are awesome.

I follow Shane on YouTube and all his social media and I think he is very funny so I decided to listen to his book.
The stories in the book are pretty funny but they dont compare to the YouTube personality; however he did say in the beginning of the book that this was a bit different than YouTube.
If you are a big fan like myself it is a good book, if you dont know who he is it might not be as good.

Im so glad this is part of the romance package and I didnt have to purchase it and was able to just return it.
The beginning was very sad and I almost stopped listening but I didnt; however the story and the narrators didnt improve, the story Im sure is not that bad, but the female narrator has an older voice, it felt like she was telling the story to her grandkids, they should take those kind of details into consideration, if the narrator has an older voice dont give her such a young character.
I got to listen only one chapter with the male character in and that was more than enough, its so unrealistic, it might as well be a female character. I really hate it when women authors do that were they picture males as they would like them to be and not as men really are.

Very predictable and a bit too much drama, then again the main character is in her 20s, however he is not and his character seems very fictional since men are not like that about love, they are not that open about feelings; I've noticed that most love novels are written by women and they picture men as women would like them to be not as they are, it makes us sigh and fall in love with them but at least for me it takes me away from the story, every time the men do something "not realistic" it makes me cringe and remember its just a made up story, I cant fall into the story.

What is it about men anyway? Bad cars, bad jobs, even bad teeth - nothing convinces them that they can't snare a size-two babe with a D-cup chest. And after way too many Internet dates with men named "luvstick" and "bigdaddy182", Lucy Rothschild should know. But sitting across from her now is "hardluvnman", and he seems different - sensitive, honest, and hot! He says he's a plumber while Lucy claims she's a nurse. She's really a mystery writer, dating online while researching her next book.

The girl internet dating, the detective looking for a online dating killer. I knew it was a romance novel so once you have read a couple of chapters you already know who is ending up with who. At the end I just wanted to know who the killer was and didn't care much for the romance its very predictable plus I felt they pull the killer out of nowhere.
