A Certain Slant of Light

Hello friends! I miss you all so much! I already told you about this book, but I still wanted to blog about it!

I recently read this book called A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb and let my say, it is VERY interesting. It is the story of a ghost named Helen (ghosts are called “Light” in the book) who attaches herself to certain humans to haunt (not in a scary way though). No one can see her not even the person she attaches herself too. Helen cannot see other “Lights” either. Until one day someone sees her. She finds out he is also a “Light” who has taken over a human body that lost its “spirit” – but the body is still alive. So he can taste and smell and touch, but Helen cannot because she does not have a human body. They are both 20 something people stuck in teenagers body – and they are CRAZY about each other. But they cannot feel each other or kiss or anything. She finds a way to attach herself to him and haunt him and then finds a body to inhabit so she can feel human and most importantly KISS him. Oh my gosh – I am so ready to read at lunch. You girls are really going to like it. Let me warn you - the end is kind of weird - and there was some unanswered questions for me. (Good 'ol Stephenie Meyer is definitely the best author EVER) Anyway - go buy it. I know JD aleady has. I just started on the classic novel Jane Eyre. I usually have a hard time with classics but I will let you know how it goes!!


  1. This one sounds interesting.

  5. So I just picked it up from the library today, I finally finished The Host which was not what I'd expected at all, but still good. Anyway I'm going to start this book tonight and see where it goes from there.

  6. i liked Certain Slant of Light.

    I thought it was sweet..

  7. okay I just finished the book and I thought it was great. The ending like yall said was a little different but I definitely liked it. I loved that the sex scenes weren't edited but surprised considering it is a young adult. Great pick Danni, it got my two thumbs up.
