I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder

Posted on: February 13, 2008

Cover Image I’ve seen so many reviews of this around that I’m not going to bother summarizing it because it would take me forever. Basically, it’s the story of a girl who’s boyfriend dies but doesn’t leave her.

 That said, I am in LOVE with this book. It’s written in verse so I was hesitant to pick it up because I’ve never read a whole book in verse before. But I’d seen so many good review of it and the plot of it seemed so great, that I had to buy it. The minute it came in the mail, I started reading it. I was hooked from the first page and stayed up much later than I should have to finish it.

When I was reading this, I felt as if it was I who had just lost the boyfriend and it was the face of my boyfriend in the mirror. Ava’s emotions were easy to relate to and I could feel the pain she was going through, along with her confusion. The fact that it was written in verse was not a set back but more of an asset to the story as it kept the story from being bogged down by details and descriptions that would have slowed Ava’s story down.

I Heart You, You Haunt Me is an amazing book that I would recommend to anyone, especially if they aren’t a huge fan of reading. If you haven’t picked this book up yet, be sure to pick it up next time you see it!

This was my first verse book, too! I’m glad you liked it. I thought it was awesome, especially because the way it was written allowed you to feel more like you were in Ava’s shoes. I think this would be good as a novel, too, but I did like the verse.

I’m going to read this for the 2k8 challenge. Glad you liked it! 🙂

[…] her boyfriend, Blaze? Or perhaps, an angel, here on earth? My Thoughts: Lisa’s debut novel, I Heart You, You Haunt Me was one of the first books I reviewed. I absolutely adored it so my expectations for Far From You […]

I’ve had this book on my wishlist and been trying to avoid seeing reviews for it (I know its been more then a year…though thankfully my attention span is such that I jump around like a squirrelly nutter) but I had no idea it was in verse. That makes it more interesting to me…hmmm…
