Shade (Shade, #1)   Shift (Shade, #2)
Shade & Shift by Jeri Smith-Ready

This is from the Kilt & Keeley fan page

Hair: Wavy, naturally brown, but wears it spiked bleached blonde with black streaks

Hobbies: Frontman for the Keeley Brothers (before death), Tabloid Decoys after death.
Description: On stage, the sexy Keeley Brothers frontman commands (and craves) everyones undivided attention. Offstage, Logan is your average teenage boy who loves music and his girlfriend Aura. One catch. He’s dead….. and a ghost. It’s complicated.

“This one's for Aura.
You all know who that is by now. The only girl I've ever loved. I wrote her a song, but she's the only one who's ever heard it, or ever will.”

“He sang the last two lines strong and smooth, promising that he'd always be with me, even when I could no longer hear his voice. I whispered the lines with him, sending the promise right back”

This is what his ghost form looks like

“What do you want as your password?"
"How about iloveaura”
I shut my eyes. "It should have at least one special character and number to keep from getting hacked."
"How about 'aura=1hot'?"

 “Logan followed my gaze. "I wonder if there'll be stars where I'm going."
"If there aren't now, there will be once you show up.”

 “The phone in my hand buzzed. Logan had just texted I Love You - so cute how he never abbreviated it.”


“I’ve been writing more songs in my head,” he said, “about being a ghost and a shade.” His face turned smooth and solemn. “How I’d die all over again just to touch you.”

“I love you, Aura," Logan whispered. "Body or not, as long as I'm in this world, I want to be with you.”


“Honestly?” Logan shrugged. “I didn’t know it could kill me. If I’d ever heard that, I forgot it a long time ago. But I knew it was dangerous.”

“Then why take the risk?” Stone asked.

Logan turned his head to look at me. “Because she was worth it.”

“I know you're worried," Logan said. "You think the second I sign a deal, I'll turn into some kind of man-slut." He put his hands over mine, pressing my palms against his chest. "You've always been the only one, and you always will be.”

He whispered against my mouth. “Wait for me, Aura.”

 “I’ll always love you.”
“I’ll love you, too.” He touched my face. “Forever.”


“Hey, it’s not like I was saving myself for the day you had a body again, so don’t get excited.”

“Too late.” He curved his fingers around my jaw and kissed me, hard enough to turn my limbs to liquid fire.”

I couldn't find anyone to match what I picture in my head. But I found a few guys with spikey blonde hair so mix them together and you kind of get Logan. These books were so sad! I feel so bad for Logan. He loves Aura so much. His words really make me swoon.


  1. I'm reading Shade now. Logan definitely sounds sweet. I liked the picture of Logan as a violet ghost. I was trying to picture what the ghosts looked like to Aura and that's kind of what I had in mind :).

  2. Awww Logan! Love him, though I do have to admit I'm a Team Zach girl :)

    And who is the guy in the last picture? Wowzers!

  3. I've heard a lot about these books. Logan sounds fascinating!


  4. Looking forward to starting SHADE & meeting Logan!

  5. Why haven't I read these books yet? Possibly because Logan trying to prove himself over and over again sounds o heartbreaking.

    He says the sweetest things to her! Love that. Thanks for sharing all the quotes, Jennifer. I swooned all over myself. :)

  6. Oooh...this series sounds amazing! Logan sounds sweet and sad at the same time. Love blonds too!


  7. I must be living under a rock. Why have I not heard of these wonderful books? Thanks for bringing them to my attention!

  8. I've heard great things about this series. I saw one of them on sale at Ollies. I'll have to go back and grab them. Logan sounds like a dream.

  9. My heart just melted. I have to read this series. No ifs, ands or buts!

  10. You finally convinced me. I'll be buying this books. No doubt.

  11. I am team Zachary, but I must admit that I liked Logan asa friend :) He was nice :) ;)

  12. I love me some Zach, but I totally felt for Logan. I kind of wanted to cry in book one. I so need to catch up on this series!

    Have an amazing reading week!
