The Hereafter by Jessica Bucher Blog Tour
Nin has no recollection of her death.
The things she does remember, like her cruel boyfriend, troubled father, and absent mother, she’d like to forget.
Dylan doesn’t need to remember his death to know that he deserved it. Who needs memories when you have the scars?
Sparks ignite when the two, very different, strangers meet. Together they spend one endless summer exploring their new world. Suddenly, their after-lives hold more possibility and promise than their tragic teenage lives ever did.
But no dream lasts forever, and all too soon, harmful memories from their pasts emerge and threaten to tear them apart. Given the chance to change their fates, Nin and Dylan must decide– life or love.
Weaving through past and present and alternating perspectives, The Hereafter is an emotional journey about young love and second chances.
Brilliantly written, perfectly executed! I adored every single thing about this book. This is a story of love, fate, and destiny. Dylan and Nin are my OTP. I loved them so much!
This story was so cleverly written. It kept me in suspense and I really wasn’t sure how it was going to play out. There were some moments that shocked me and that I didn’t see coming. It all came together so well. This book played with my emotions. It had me sad, then happy. It gave me all the feels. It was a tragic yet beautiful story. I read this book in one day, in a few hours. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. The only time I put this book down was when the battery on my kindle died. I didn’t even let it get a full charge before diving right back into it.
The way this book was fleshed out made it so enjoyable to read and easy to follow. The chapters went back and forth between Nin and Dylan’s point of view in the present and also in the past. This is the type of writing I love to read! It makes the story move along smoothly. This book had me an emotional mess. It gave me all the feels. It was very easy to get invested in these characters and feel for them. I was routing for them the whole way through.
This is one of those few fictional books that are fun to read but at the same time make you think and reflect. This isn’t a light and fluffy book. It had some darker elements to it. It takes a look at the grayer parts of our world. It wasn’t all puppies and roses. It was a breath of fresh air. This book didn’t glamorize it’s characters. They were real characters with real problems.
I truly loved this story and would read it all over again. This is one I want on my bookcase for sure! If you are a fan of Colleen Hoover’s writing then you will really enjoy reading this book!
