    One thought on “Reaper”

    1. Review based on an ARC provided by Edelweiss I also want to thank the publisher for giving me this opportunity.This is a short novel I managed to read in one sit, which is quite rare for me.Rosie died in an accident and finds out she needs to fulfill a task in order to go to heaven and meet her father again This means to reap three souls, as an assistant to Death Not only is it a job that takes a toll on her but severe rules ensue, including not to connect with any of the living And of course sh [...]

    2. Reaper stretches itself too thin and struggles to tell a story Plot Rosie woke up one day to find that she was killed in a car accident Instead of heading to the pearly gates, she learned that she must return to Earth to take the souls of three people Basically, she had to be the grim reaper for a few months Rosie dealt with a lot of heartache her father passed away, her best friend wasn t really her friend, and her own demise caused her some trauma Reaper attempted to explore mortality and high [...]

    3. Check out this and other reviews on my young adult book blog, Here s to Happy Endings As far as one of a kind, completely original books go, Reaper is probably one of top ones that I have read over the years It was unexpected, and not at all like how I thought it was going to be The book was captivating and gripping, and once I started reading, I couldn t stop In fact, I read it over the course of a single afternoon.Rosie Wolf always thought that when you die, you go right to a wonderful Paradis [...]

    4. If you ve ever lost someone and have felt that loss for some time afteris is the book for you If you have ever wondered what is life after death This is the book for you If you want a book that is written so well that you can t help but to keep readingis is that book My father passed 10 years ago in October and I still have trouble thinking about him This book helped me move on I didn t cry like A Fault In Our Stars, it was just a feeling of peace A sigh of ease knowing that my father is out th [...]

    5. One of the earliest forms of trauma for most young teens has to deal with the subject of coping with death Reaper, by Kyra Leigh, follows the story of Rosie Wolfe, which starts with her waking up in the strangest looking hospital like room It s a prelude to the discovery that she no longer inhabits the land of the living Leigh puts a completely different spin on her examination of death by having her hero dealing with it post mortem Not only does the trauma of her father s death from cancer stil [...]

    6. First off I just have to say that this cover does not do this story justice.Yes, I know do not judge a book by the cover but really publishers should at least ask the cover designer to read the freaking book I look at this cover and I see dark and sinister, this story is so far from that concept I was actually pleasantly surprised when it did not meet my expectations of the cover.The story was great, there seems to be a lot of reaper books out lately I mean Grim when I say reaper At first I was [...]

    7. Reaper you know the plot from the back of the book, but it s so much than that If you ve ever dealt with the loss of someone you loved, this book will touch you Rosie is young but she s not a flighty teenager She s sensible and knows what she has to do in order to see her father again and it hurts You see her dealing with the same insecurities other teenagers have, plus watching someone she loves die And then of course her own death and then being the cause of others, just so she can move on He [...]

    8. This one just didn t work out for me The back and forth in time slowed down the story and I just couldn t connect with Rosie Rosie s lack of real feeling though the story just didn t seem plausible for someone her age and well that really took away the emotion that should have been in the book The world building afterlife really got a gloss over or a gray over is you ask me There was no real description on why everything was a washed out gray or even why this are of the afterlife was so doom and [...]

    9. 3.75 Stars A quick read, great for reluctant readers Rosie dies at the young age of 17 and in order to pass along to the next level of the afterlife, she must reap 3 souls She s kinda teen angst, do what I want to do don t care what happens kind of girl Her father passed away over a year ago and she just wants to see him again.The book moves quickly, but I think it could have used development towards the end of the book The ending felt rushed and leaves you wondering about Rosie s mother in the [...]

    10. 2.5 stars I read this book because I myself lost my Dad at a young age I thought I d connect with Rosie, I thought I d understand her But in fact I found myself almost laughing at how lacking it was in real grief and how disconnected from the characters I felt.I felt like she was saying everything in a cliche and almost non genuine way In fact I felt that about the whole story I couldn t help compare it to other books with similar premises The Monsters Call for example and it just lack that lyri [...]

    11. I read an extended excerpt of Reaper by Kyra Leigh on rivetedlit, the Riveted website The story is interesting enough and is definitely written for young adult middle school age readers This is a clean read story dealing with relationships and their struggles Rosie, the main character, is cute but she struggles with self esteem issues She develops through the story and learns a lot about herself, her family and her friends 4 stars for this fun supernatural read

    12. I found this book really interesting It didn t end at all how I expected it to, but I respect the author a ton for making that choice I could also really feel what she was feeling However, I wish she had been able to change something Even if she couldn t escape the situation, I wish she had maybe been able to change something in the system But applause for not doing what your readers expect, and making the hard decision to end the story in a way that felt authentic to itself.

    13. I started this one thinking that it would be a quick read that was up my alley Girl dies and finds out the afterlife is complicated than expected Not here for whatever this was intended to be though Incoherently complex and no real rules that are clear and people are shitty and fake and wtf is even happening I was just dropped here in this story and I want out.An unfortunate DNF for one of my random library picks.

    14. Great debut novel I loved all of the characters so much, especially Rosie All the yummy descriptions of food made me want to eat especially cinnamon rolls I really liked the secondary characters a lot I thought her crush relationship with Kyle felt realistic and had good pacing.The ending was definitely bittersweet.

    15. Reaper wasn t what I was expecting at all I thought there would be paranormal ness to the story, but it was very straight forward It was such a depressing read I m actually really glad I was able to read it in two sittings so I didn t have to sit with his that long because parts of it were very real looks at death and grief.

    16. So it s a YA novel, so bear in mind it s super simple I loved the concept of the book, and for the most part it was a great read However, it completely fell apart at the end Everything wrapped up in about 3 pages, and there were way too many unanswered questions.

    17. Eh This wasn t a fun read, and for it s purposes I feel like there wasn t enough story or the plot was missing essential elements to make it engaging I get it, grieving sucks.2 stars

    18. I had really high expectations for this book, and I wish I hadn t Kyra is the daughter of one of my favorite authors, and I was so excited to read her book I was expecting the deep haunting experience that I usually get with Carol s books I kept expecting a big twist or something, but it didn t come In the end, I appreciated the subtlety and simplicity of the story I really liked Rosie I liked the way she thought She was very straightforward, and she didn t over complicate things This is the ver [...]

    19. I received an advanced copy for review from Edelweiss.Rosie just woke up in a strange place that turns out to be some kind of afterlife She s told that if she wants to go to heaven and see her father, who died last year, she needs to be a Reaper If she can take 3 souls, she can see her dad again, and it s as easy as touching a person s shoulder But it isn t as easy as it sounds Rosie wants to check on her mom and make sure she s okay, and there s a boy who seems to like her, which never happened [...]
