Dead Girls Don't by Mags Storey (DNF)
Dead Girls Don't by Mags Storey
2 stars DNF
The premise for this books sounded really interesting. A girl with the ability to communicate with the dead while touching them helps a guy she used to have feelings for after he accused of murder and more people turn up dead. I really liked the idea of communicating with dead bodies while working in a morgue. It was very urban fantasy, but the writing and characters are too childish. All these kids care about is ruining each others' lives. They upstage each other in wrecking peoples' emotions and personal belongings. I wasn't really too invested in the who-done-it of the story and I feel like if I cared more then I would have continued reading. My biggest problem was that Liv and her friend Gabriel created a kill poll online. The website was a who killed this person and who's next to die type of thing and I was pretty disgusted by that. I'm just not interested in continuing the story especially now that I have a low view of the characters and don't really care.

Sadly this isn't for me and I'm disappointed that I'm not continuing, but I can't force myself to read on.
Cover Thoughts: Not really into the cover, but it does give off that creepy vibe.
Thank you, Netgalley and Chiteen for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
