{Bookish Gush} Cynthia Hand & “The Afterlife of Holly Chase”

Welcome to the first and maybe not last? Bookish Gush! I basically decided to create this post because one of my favorite authors, Cynthia Hand, has a new book coming out November 7, 2017. ZOMG. Soooo long from now! 

I fell head over heels in love with Cynthia’s Angelic trilogy Unearthly about 5 years ago. I’ve also met Cynthia in person at a book signing. She’s so sweet and super funny!

So besides wanting to help spread the word about Cynthia’s new book The Afterlife of Holly Chase, I also wanted to gush about the new cover that was just revealed. I love it! It’s dark and mystical and totally fits the description of the book.

On Christmas Eve five years ago, Holly was visited by three ghosts who showed her how selfish and spoiled she’d become. They tried to convince her to mend her ways.


She didn’t


And then she died.

Now she’s stuck working for the top-secret company Project Scrooge–as the latest Ghost of Christmas Past.

Every year, they save another miserly grouch. Every year, Holly stays frozen at seventeen while her family and friends go on living without her. So far, Holly’s afterlife has been miserable.


But this year, everything is about to change. . . .



Have you read any books by Cynthia? What books are you currently gushing over??

  1. I loved Hand's Unearthly trilogy! I'm not sure how I feel about this one though… It's not normally a genre I reach for, but I might give it a try.

    Thanks for visiting Shell's Stories!
