She Smells The Dead Playlist

From the second I saw the cover of this book, I knew I had to read it. Thankfully, author E.J. Stevens was awesome and sent me a copy. I fell in love with Yuki, the main character, as well as her hunky werewolf squeeze, Calvin Miller.

If you haven't been introduced to The Spirit Guide Series,  then here is the basic plot. No spoilers here guys!

Yuki is a bit more than your average high school girl. She has a unique talent for smelling dead people. It can be awkward. It's even weirder when you try to tell someone. So, Yuki has ghosts following her around, and with Calvin (aka hunky werewolf boyfriend/protector) there by her side, she has to learn how to protect herself and solve the problems of the ghosts she encounters. A pretty tall order when you still have homework and a curfew.

I asked author E.J. Stevens if she had a playlist for her awesome books and she said yes! So here it is for the first time ever! The playlist for The Spirit Guide Series!  E.J. says they inspire her to write about Yuki and her friends. I can't wait to listen to her list!

I remember the first time I heard it, I was watching the last episode of Six Feet Under and I cried like a baby when the song played and every one's life started fast forwarding to the future. Now I get to go play on ITunes. Yippee!
