Revisiting Waiting on Wednesday: The Ghost and the Goth - Stacey Kade

So I've decided to start up a feature where I look back at my past Waiting on Wednesday posts and catch up on what books I was looking forward to last year and what I thought of them once I did read and review them. Some of my Waiting on Wednesday picks have become firm favourites of mine but, looking back, there are a few that didn't quite live up to the hype.

This week I'm looking at The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade

When I posted: June 23rd 2010

What I was looking forward to: I thought The Ghost and the Goth was going to be a fresh take on paranormal romances. I was sure it was going to be fun and light-hearted and not like anything I'd read before.

What I actually thought: "The Ghost and the Goth chugs along at an easy pace but I did find things dragged slightly towards the end of the book so cutting down a couple of the chapters as the book drew to a close would have improved things I think. The ending was a little bit clich├ęd for me, I’m afraid but then that’s probably because I’m not a fan of every tiny loose end being tied up with a nice old bow."

Did it live up to my expectations?: No, unfortunately it didn't. While I quite enjoyed The Ghost and the Goth it definitely wasn't as fun as I thought it was going to be and I did find it a little boring in places.

So there you have it! What about you guys? Do you normally end up enjoying your Waiting on Wednesday picks when you get to read them?


  1. Carly - what a truly brilliant idea - I hope it encourages other people to do the same.
    Sorry it didnt live up to your expectations. I still have it on my wishlist LOL

  2. How FUN! I've never seen anyone do this, but I really hope more people do.


Thank you kindly for the comment, you sweet thing.
