For YAGal’s first ever #YABookCook I’m reading Elizabeth Holloway’s Call Me Grim and cooking Bratwurst. This is a dish guys usually like! It’s super easy, and the time you save making dinner will give you the opportunity to read. 😉

Bratwurst and Kraut

Ingredients

  • 1 head green cabbage
  • 1 jar sauerkraut
  • 2 apples

And now for the review!

Call Me Grim by Elizabeth Holloway is the perfect book for a misty October night.

Libi should be dead right now, except for creepy-stalker-guy Aaron saved her moments before a truck would have ended her teenage life. The catch is that Aaron is a local Grim Reaper and he wants Libi to take over his job.

As the clock ticks Libi has a multitude of decisions to make. Quick death or immortal discord? Best friend Kyle or Mr. Aaron RIP?

I was really impressed by how the story’s premise held together so well. There were lots of parts where I found myself thinking “Wow! That is sooooo cool!”

As YA books go, Call Me Grim is PG in terms of cleanness. It’s not too scary or too racy but it is definitely “I’ve-got-to-read-this-in-one-day!” material. I look forward to reading more books from Elizabeth Holloway in the future.
