Blog Tour Review and GIVEAWAY: Afterlife Academy- Jaimie Admans


Summary: Even being dead isn’t enough to get you out of maths class.
Dying wasn't on sixteen-year-old Riley Richardson's to-do list. And now, not only is she dead, but she's stuck in a perpetual high school nightmare. Worse still, she's stuck there with the geekiest, most annoying boy in the history of the world, ever.
In a school where the geeks are popular and just about everything is wrong, Riley has become an outcast. She begins a desperate quest to get back home, but her once-perfect life starts to unravel into something not nearly as great as she thought it was. And maybe death isn’t really that bad after all...
Welcome to Afterlife Academy, where horns are the norm, the microwave is more intelligent than the teachers, and the pumpkins have a taste for blood.

Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. Okay, let's be honest here, who wouldn't want to read a book with a cover like this? So beautiful! When I first started reading this novel it reminded me of The Riley Bloom Series by Alyson Noel (which is weird because both of there names are Riley). Once I got into the story I could tell it was its own book and had fresh ideas on the afterlife. Plus, I love a great academy setting, when I die, Afterlife Academy is where I plan to be. Crap! Never mind I'm too old! My favourite part of the book was when Riley and Anthony were trying to figure out where they were and what was going I and they made mention of "a guy who woke up from a coma and everyone is zombies". Hmmm, what on earth could they be talking about (innocent face)?
I enjoyed Riley, she is the mean girl who finally sees the error of her ways. I would say that she was a little obsessed with her boyfriend, even after she finds out what he was doing when she wasn't around. Anthony is the cute, sweet geek who is picked on by the mean girl, but still has a crush on her, even though she is a jerk to him.
I really hope that this novel will have a sequel. It left off right at a juicy part and I want to know what happens! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good read.
