    2. What did I think? I LOVED it!!!!!!! I liked book #2 even more than book #1. Once I started it, I couldn't put it down until I finished it. Absolutely love the ending and the possibilities of what's in store for book #3! I think what I like the most about this series is the originality. I read a lot of books and sometimes you feel like you're just reading the same book over and over with different names. Absolutely not the case with this series. Very original and captivating. A MUST READ FOR 2014 [...]

    3. (Read using Kindle Unlimited)I wasn’t the biggest fan of the first book in this series, but this one was an improvement.Olga and Nate became Spirit Guides in this book, but in reality they still needed guidance themselves. Olga continued to obsess over Conner in this book, and we did actually find out what happened to him. Nate seemed to be behaving the most maturely, but he turned out to be a little deceitful, and we then got things getting really messed up towards the end of the story. The e [...]

    4. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. And, I really enjoyed the originality of the story and the message that's imparted within as well. Ms. Ayres produced a story that is well written and engaging with little twists and turns that made me question how it would turn out. I felt myself worrying and caring what would happen to the characters. There were times in the story that I thought the characters were doing things that didn't make sense, and I admit that I got frust [...]

    5. This book was weird but strangely interesting.The storyline was fascinating as I love stories about angels, Hell and Heaven.I think it was some characters which let me down.Like some of them pissed me off to no end. It was a good read in the end. There was always something interesting which kept me going.Full review: kitkat1242/2014

    6. I received an Advance Reader Copy of 18 Truths from Curiosity Quills Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.18 Truths by Jamie Ayres starts of where 18 Things ended. If you haven't read 18 things yet, I'd suggest that you stop reading here and go read that one first!Hiding the general plot line under a spoileryou knowjust in case(view spoiler)[Olga and Nate are coping with the whole fact that the last year of their lives was simply an illusion. Oh, and the fact that they've been de [...]

    7. I8 Truths by Jamie Ayres is a literary triumph. Beautifully told. Meticulously executed.I first received 18 Truths as a beta reader and saw this manuscript blossom into what it is now. The story picks up after 18 Things (you should probably read this one first so you know what’s going on). Long story short, Olga’s Worontzoff, along with her friend Nate, are on a mission to save best friend (and her secret crush) Connor from the Underworld. Connor died in a freak accident and Olga is determin [...]

    8. READ IN ENGLISH Read all my reviews at urlphantomhiveoklikes I received a free copy from Curiosity Quills Press via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I really liked the cover, that made me decide I wanted to read the book. I didn't know it was the second book in a series, but I didn't feel like I missed a lot by not reading it before 18 truths (of course, I missed all Olga's 18 things, but it didn't seem that important).Olga has just found out she's dead, to make things worse: she's bee [...]

    9. What does comes to mind when you think about death? For me it's an endless sleep. Nothingness. And as a Roman Catholic, that when the time comes Jesus will come and give the judgement day. And then I read this book. HOLY. WACKAMOLE! This book gave me all the WHAT IF's. Reading this book is such an amazingly beautiful experience for me. It's a whole new YA paranormal book. Yes, it talked about God and bible. It is very inspiring, yet there's still your daily dose of paranormal read. The world bui [...]

    10. This novel through me for a loop. The entire time I was reading I found myself verbally responding and laughing. At one point, I got so frustrated with the characters that I was yelling, "Don't be stupid", but when I explained why they were being stupid to my boyfriend, I realized- I've done the exact same things. This may sound obvious and basic of me, but it is the moment that the humanity of this novel really hit me. It's a wonderful read anyways, but that element makes it the novel it is, an [...]

    11. I think I liked it. I wanted to keep reading it and I wanted to finish it to see how it ends, but at the same time all the religious stuff kept bothering me and I don't know why. I am not atheist or agnostic and firmly believe in God, angels, and heaven, but this bothered me. Was it too much religious stuff, was it brought up at the wrong times, was it used unnecessarily? These are questions I can't answer. I know this took place in limbo and of course there would be references to God and there [...]

    12. Needless to say, the story gets you involved, and you’ll find yourself rooting for characters and booing others, maybe even audibly. ’18 Truths’ is a story about starting over, even after you’re dead. About holding on to the people you love, even after they’re gone. If you like chatting with gloriously creepy angels and battling demons armed with your sharply honed Star Wars references, finding yourself, and falling in love, then you need to read this book. And my ONE kick in the butt [...]

    13. This sequel made me laugh and cry just like the first one! Even though 18 Truths seemed like it'd be a heavier story than 18 Things, since Olga is spending her summer in the Underworld, it actually had a lighter tone. I loved the spirit guide training scenes with Riel (her angel boss). I loved the new songs. *swoons* I also loved the last chapter--I couldn't believe the surprise at the end of this one either! Can't wait for the last installment of the trilogy!

    14. I received a copy to read and review. I must say I loved it. I started reading it and couldn't put it down. I love the story line. The characters are great. I love the world she has created for her characters. I highly recommend it to others. I look forward to reading more of Jamie's books.

    15. This book was fantastic! It sucked me in from the beginning and the ending left me wanting more and anxious for the next book.

    16. Now I'm back at work, I've got the Audible going again, and since book 1 was read at the end of the last school year this way, I got started on this book now I'm back.Honestly, I struggled in the beginning to like this book. The whole thing didn't sit well with my own personal understanding of life after death and made me uncomfortable. But, since I really enjoyed the first book, I pushed on.Once Olga and Nate started their assignment with Grace, I was hooked. I played the book at any moment I c [...]

    17. I received this book with no strings attached from the author. But I try to always leave a review, so here I am.This book did go the way I was hoping it wouldn't. There was the extra bonus of having some of it be from Conner's perspective. Unfortunately, it really didn't add to the story a whole lot.I don't like the main character, Olga, one bit. And the message I received from this book, I'm certain, isn't the message that was supposed to be given. I'm thinking that the message was supposed to [...]

    18. A great sequel to 18—THINGS with a whole new feel. By ‘new feel’, I mean that 18—TRUTHS sets off in a whole different direction, bringing in some new characters, new stakes, and a whole new world. Where eighteen-year-old Olga spent 18—THINGS in her senior year of high school trying to come to terms with her best friend’s death, she now finds herself coping with life in the Underworld. The ‘real life’ feel from book 1 disappears as Olga tries to depict right from wrong in a realm [...]

    19. Find more reviews on my blog: The Bookish Life*I received a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.You are not advised to read this review if you haven't read the first book.We're back into the story of Olga Gay Worontzoff, and this second book includes angels, spirit guides, and more Star Wars references!Here's why Book 2 was much better than Book 1:1. Conner. The prologue was from Conner's perspective, and I was amazed at how, when compared, his voice was so different from Olga [...]

    20. Review at SmudgedI received a free copy of this book on netgalley in return for an honest review and quotes taken from this uncorrected version, subject to change in the final edition.18 Truths starts off with a quick epilogue from Connor’s perspective. I was really excited to find out where Connor was and discover who he really was outside of Olga’s golden-pedestal view of him. Instead, we are thrown back into Olga’s narration, picking up where 18 Things left off.Time is running out for O [...]

    21. What I liked: I liked how this one starts off, and most of the story that we get. The twist about Olga and Nat was one that led to them both to becoming spirit guides in the world that Ayers has set up for the story. I always sort of thought Purgatory and Limbo were the same, but apparently not? So that was interesting. I also liked how the angels and demons play a role in the story of Olga trying to rescue Conner (who got a prologue in the beginning and who we learned was far less than the perf [...]

    22. (I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).(This review may contain spoilers).After having read and enjoyed the first book in this trilogy, I was quite eager to see the second one. And although it started off as good, by the time I reached the end, I found myself quite disappointed.Learning more about the dimensions of hell was really interesting. I liked the concept that there were almost 'waiting' areas and opportunities for souls without faith to get a second chance. And I [...]

    23. I received "18 Truths" by Jamie Ayres by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Olga died a year ago. She now knows that and is determined that she will spend the rest of her existence as a spirit guide, helping others make peace and move on to Heaven. The only problems are that the first person she is supposed to help wants nothing to do with her and she is having problems moving on from Connor when she knows that he is somewhere out there. Olga wants nothing more than one last chanc [...]

    24. I received a free copy from netgalley in exchange for an honest review. (My actual rating is a 4.5 except doesn't allow that)I definitely liked this book a lot more than the first. When I read the first book, I didn't know anything about the book before hand, didn't even know the name of the series. I like reading a book with suspense, not knowing exactly what its about at all. What I did not mention from the prior book is that it does speak about religion, since Olga and her parents are very r [...]

    25. I won this book from a contest on .Three teenagers, Olga, Nate and Connor whose lives are intertwined to one another have all died tragically. Olga and Nate are boyfriend & girlfriend and are crazy for each other and Connor is Olga's best friend and has known him for 13 years and she even has a secret crush on him. They are finished with high school and are about to move on to their next chapters in life, but are enjoying their last summer. When tragedy strikes, all three teenagers are sent [...]

    26. I received this book for my honest review.In the second book, we are following Olga and Nate learning to live their new lives are spirit guides. Their relationship is going good, until Olga realizes she can find her childhood friend, Connor. not only was he her childhood friend, but she was always secretly in love with him. Nate takes on their new job by himself and drifts start to happen between them. Olga soon finds herself way over her head and doesn't know what to do. Can she save Connor and [...]

    27. See the entire review on my blog, books, food and other things on the 7th of April, 2014.When I began this book, i thought that the prologue was enjoyable to read, and set the scene just enough to get me asking questions and to keep me reading. However, I did think that the change in perspective was confusing as there wasn't really an indicator of the change, so I still thought I was reading in the perspective of the other character, Conner.I enjoyed the beginning. It wasn't too heavy on the rom [...]

    28. Connor and Olga were childhood friends. Now both are dead but in different levels of the afterlife, and angels (demons too) are watching themd potentially plotting.Often overly verbose narrative with lots of quotations drag the action and plot development. The potential major action between the Heaven and Hell conflict is introduced late, downplayed, and brief. Characters are not fully developed and often one dimensional.Overall, a disappointing read.

    29. I was definitely surprised by all the twists and turns this book took. I am grateful for the time with Conner, but still don't know where I stand on the whole Nate/Conner thing. I find the portrayal of God a little conflicting in this story- sometimes he seems harsh, others very merciful and loving. Of course, that is often the case in scriptures. I am very interested to see where this series goes next.

    30. I have spent a few weeks trying to slowly read this book, and I just can't bring myself to continue. I have read almost half of it, and I feel like nothing has happened in terms of the plot and the characters have not developed at all. This book just didn't hold my interest, which is a shame because I enjoyed the first book in the series. I give 18 Truths one star. I did not finish this novel.
