Marianne’s Review:

This Morning I Woke Up Dead is a story like no other. It’s a captivating book that shows us that love knows no bounds.

In this story, we see how powerful love is. Mindy Larson really makes us believe in true love with this book.

Here’s a small tidbit from the synopsis:

This Morning I Woke Up Dead takes you on a journey of discovery as two souls fight against their undeniably difficult situation of being tormented and separated by different realms of existence, proving that those who are destined to be together will not be kept apart by a beating heart.

This is the reason I picked this up.

Reminiscent of Elsewhere, this book takes us on a journey to the afterlife.

From the very beggining, I was captivated by the author’s beautiful and poetic prose. She had such a way with words.

Memories are forever cemented to your soul. They cannot make you forget

Another aspect I really loved about this story was the characters. All the characters were unique and special in their own way.

I especially loved Hadley and Dominic, the protagonists. Both of them had really nice voices. Their love was beautiful and tragic at the same time. They were the very definition of “soul-mates”. I found myself rooting for them from the very beginning. I loved every minute of reading their love story.

This book, in a way, found a way to preach to us. It found a way to get into your mind and make you re-think your stance on life.

I am so glad that I read this book, because, frankly, it’s one of the best romances I’ve ever read.

You should definitely pick this up.

5 stars.

 Jennifer’s Review

Rating: 5 stars

We’re all dead, but we don’t know it. Hadley realized she was dead, making her go to the next realm (as some would say heaven). And her fiance Dominic is left on Earth as “alive”. And the only way for them to be together once again is for him to realize too,that we are all dead.

I got really engaged with the synopsis of the book with all the afterlife mystery. The author knows how to use words. They suck you in from the very first page until you end it; they flow effortlessly in the pages.

It’s a book that makes you really think about what’s going on in your life. Are you living as fully as you can? Are you merely existing? What am I good at?

I loved how in this kind of book the religions weren’t involved, not that I am necessarily against them. But there are times when you get to think, how about we read a book where there aren’t any gods? No Greek, no Nordic, no Mayan, God, etc.

The plot was fabulous. The twist it takes, the way pieces here and there end up together it’s amazing. You foresee a few things without it being too obvious nor too frustrating. At the end of the book, a lot of the questions that appeared were answered as well as a few unanswered, left to make you think all night over it… It ends with the suspense, the hope, that there might be a sequel, or maybe not.

A thing I’m always very picky about are the characters. Here the characters have a voice of their own. When you read, you instantly know its them even if it wasn’t written in the book. You know it’s them. You know what they are capable of doing and how they think in some cases.

I loved Hadley and Dominic (protagonists) the most. Their love conquered all and went through hell until they were together again. This heart-warming emotions wrecking story gives a whole new definition of the term Soul-Mates. During the whole book I couldn’t help but feel these bittersweet emotions towards their situation. I literally fangirled on most parts of the book when something cute or wow happened with them <3

I thank the author for giving me the opportunity to read this bewildering romantic paranormal fantasy. I was completely blown-away by the work of this new author. Loved it <3
