Review: The Last Wish of Sasha Cade

Hey guys! I’m super behind on reviews so I decided to do this for and ARC that I read in September?? October?? Anyway I should have done this review a long time ago.

 


REVIEW OF THE LAST WISH OF SASHA CADE BY CHEYANNE YOUNG

34802290 (1)The day Raquel has been dreading for months has finally arrived. Sasha, her best friend in the whole world — the best friend in the whole world — has died of cancer. Raquel can’t imagine life without her. She’s overwhelmed and brokenhearted. And then a letter from Sasha arrives. Has she somehow found a way to communicate from the afterlife? In fact, Sasha has planned an elaborate scavenger hunt for Raquel, and when she follows the instructions to return to Sasha’s grave, a mysterious stranger with striking eyes is waiting for her. There’s a secret attached to this boy who only Sasha—and now Raquel—knows. This boy, Elijah, might be just what Raquel needs to move on from her terrible loss. But can Raquel remain true to herself while also honoring her friend’s final wish?


The Last Wish of Sasha Cade 3🌟

This was one of my first e-arcs to receive, It came out during the autumn and i should have really done this review before. I enjoyed this book, it was cute. i have to say this is a book with great platonic friendship. What i found very interesting about this book was the plot and how most books about grief are mostly about handling with it but this one was so sweet.


DISLIKES:

I have to say though I have a few dislikes. First thing was the romance in this story, honestly it felt forced and honestly not needed. It was personally to clichee and I didn’t enjoy the whole “Bad Boy” and “Goody Too Shoes”. The other fact was that I sometimes felt that the author “romanticized” Sasha death. It was almost like the “love relationship” (I don’t want to spoil) fixed everything, again this was for some moments in the book not everything.


CHARACTERS:

Honestly my favourite character was Sasha you didn’t really meet her personally but by everything  she was doing and what she was portraying you kinda felt like you knew her. I didn’t like Raquel much but that’s just a personal opinion


Well that concluded my review also sorry it’s so short, also ive been inactive for a long time because I had a lot of things going on and personally couldn’t keep up with the pressure that I would put on myself but I’m slowly coming back.

Also thankyou so much to NetGalley and KCP Loft/Kids Can Press for sending me a e-copy.

Happy Reading

Audiobooks

Audiobooks do you like them yes? or no?

Personally yes I love audiobooks , I think that they are a great way to get into more books that you don’t own or just don’t feel like physically reading . Some people don’t like audiobooks because of the  narration or because of the price. True these are all valid points but for the narrators…yes there are bad narrators. But most of them are pretty good but some are 100% for sure  better than others.

For the price issue I actually think this is a big problem because not every library has audiobooks. You can either get them though your local library with an app called Overdrive, If you just want to try audiobooks you can always get free trials with Audible, Scribd and I think Ibooks. I’ve tried all of these options and I think Scribd is  the best for me, It offers free ebooks and free audiobooks for only 11$ a month. Which is pretty cheap for audiobooks.

How did I get into Audiobooks?

Thats actually a funny story cause my friend had been listening to audiobooks for the longest of time but I never really tought about it myself until 2 years later when I started Bookstagram and I saw all these people listening to audiobooks and it gave me the idea to start listening to them. So I asked around and found a few apps and now I listen to audiobooks almost every day.

I Love this series I find its so cute but love the paranormal theme going on. I only read this book. I have to read the rest of the series but still love it.

Many people have different opinions on this audiobook. Cause its spoken with a southern accent wich I love cause its real and that’s wear it takes place. At first I didn’t really like it but In in the end I loved this audiobook. 4/5
