She Smells The Dead by E.J. Stevens

She Smells The Dead
by E.J. Stevens

Published: August 2010
Genre: Ghosts, YA
Paperback: 184 pages
Rating: 5

Description from the amazon:
It's the beginning of senior year and Yuki's psychic awareness of ghostly spirits is threatening to ruin her life.

Her ability to sense spirits of the dead isn't glamorous like the ghost hunting on television.


The smell impressions are becoming stronger. Yuki is being visited in her dreams, and she suspects that her friend Calvin is involved in something strange. To make matters worse her crush on Garrett is going unrequited, Yuki's friend Emma is on a rampage against bee oppression, and annoying Calvin Miller mysteriously disappears.

Will Yuki be able to focus her powers in time to save the lost soul who is haunting her?

Meanwhile, who will save Yuki from following the spirits into the light?

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): Technosmellor, yah
Loved this gem of a book!

There's a bit of mystery, dreams, spirits, were lore and some lovin'.

The main characters were adorable and the interactions between them is what was so appealing to me. Such innocence, honesty and suh-weeetness in dialogue and thoughts.

You can see photos of the main characters on E.J.'s site along with reviews, interviews and other giveaway offers of this book.

Cool treat:
In the end notes, I found a fellow blogger buddy's testimonial!

Freda of Freda's Voice gave praise for Shadows of Myth and Legend by E.J. Stevens

I really enjoyed this little work of Art! I was lulled into the dark mind of a poet, and taken on a trip. It was fantastic, and I had so many favorites, though this stood out to me: Grindylow - Page 45. I love a great horror, and this was one of those tales that did not disappoint me in the scare department! I recommend this delectably dark book to everyone!"

How cool was that! OK, another add-on for my tbr pile!

  1. That IS really cool! Atta girl, Freda!!! And not only is that cover superbly goth, but the plot sounds irresistable - :D

  2. The premise -- psychic sniffing -- is brills! I can't wait to read this one.

  3. I must have been thinking about this book, because the other night I had a dream, and I kept smelling something in it. I don't even want to know what this would smell like.

  4. This sounds like an awesome book!
    Heeh, should have said smells like an awesome book! *g*

    But wow, only 184 pages? :P
    I certainly hope there's a sequel soon! lmao

  5. Thanks for posting about my review of her poetry book! I really loved it, and honestly can't wait to read She Smells the Dead. Fantastic review, makes me wanna sniff it out even more.
