        Carrie Jones likes Skinny Cow fudgsicles and potatoes She does not know how to spell fudgsicles This has not prevented her from writing books She lives with her cute family in Maine, but she grew up in Bedford, NH where she once had a s ance with cool uber comedian Sarah Silverman.The Meyers brothers are from Bedford, too, so you d think it would make Carrie funnier, coming from Bedford N.H Obviously, something didn t work.Carrie has a large, skinny white dog and a fat cat Both like fudgicles Only the cat likes potatoes This may be a reason for the kitty s weight problem Shh don t tell Carrie has always liked cowboy hats but has never owned one This is a very wrong thing She graduated from Vermont College s MFA program for writing She has edited newspapers and poetry journals and has recently won awards from the Maine Press Association and also been awarded the Martin Dibner Fellowship as well as a Maine Literary Award.Here s the lowdown about Carrie 1 Carrie can not drink coffee It makes her insane Do not give her caffeine 2 Carrie is very responsive to loving strokes on the hair, kind of like a puppy However, do not do this without asking first unless you are a ridiculously handsome man or an editor who is about to offer her a trillion dollars for the first draft of her novel 3 Carrie is secretly really, really shy even though she s pathetically outgoing in person She has a very hard time calling people So, if you want to talk to her, make the first move And, if you re her in Maine female best friend, Jennifer, do NOT get mad at her because she is so bad at returning emails 4 Carrie sometimes wears mismatched socks, if you do not think this is cool, do not tell her You will hurt her feelings 5 Carrie really, really wants you to like her books Please like her books PLEEEAASSSEEEE She ll be your best friend forever That is, if you want a friend who is shy about calling and emailing and who wears mismatched socks and can t drink caffeine and likes being pet on the head Hhmmm 6 Carrie is not above begging 7 Carrie, like Belle in TIPS ON HAVING A GAY ex BOYFRIEND drinks Postum It s for the same reason, too 8 Carrie loves Great Pyrenees dogs They are huge and white, and furry and it looks like they have white eyeliner and mascara on, which is way too cute Do you have one Send a picture 9 Carrie lives in Maine She has a hard time with this in the winter It is bleak in Maine in the winter Imagine everything shades of gray and brown and no green anywhere except for in people s noses This is Maine in Winter Maine in summer is the best place in the world, so it s a trade off Feel free to invite Carrie to your house in the winter, but not if it s in Greenland, Canada, or anywhere north of Florida 10 Forget that She d still probably come.

    1. spoilers near end of review Oh Carrie Jones, Carrie Jones You ve done it again I don t know why I m such a glutton for punishment I wish she would just stop writing books because for some dark reason I am continually inclined to read them.This book was so, so stupid I can t even believe it In a quick sum up, this is a book about a girl named Aimee, who for whatever reason can dream the future and heal people by touching them She also meets a hunky guy named Alan who conveniently just moved to to [...]


    2. After ObsessionCool name.Unfortunately, I have no idea why it s the name of this book Um, after what obsession Can someone explain it to me I didn t notice anyone with an unnatural obsession in this book At all.Really I m not being snarky Feel free to leave a comment if you get it cause I sure didn t EDIT Several of you have responded to let me know what the hell After Obsession meant Thank you Evidently I missed it, but one of the stages of possession is referred to as Obsession.Ok Now that tha [...]


    3. I ll admit, I hadn t heard much about this book until it arrived from Bloomsbury to review Firstly, I was drawn to the cover of the book, its beautiful right Then secondly, the blurb sounded interesting enough and thirdly, I heard there was an awesome romance story involved too So what s not to like After Obsession is told from Aimee and Alan s point of view, alternating between the two characters The story centres on Alan s cousin being possessed by an evil spirit known as The River Man The Riv [...]


    4. THE FAERIES VIEWI had really mixed feelings about reading After Obsession I won t hide the fact that I m haven t been big Carrie Jones fan in the past her Need series started with a BANG and went out with a whimper a major disappointment to me, to say the least BUT That is not why I m here Aimees best friend, Courtney is acting strangely and with the help of Alan, Courtneys cousin, who moves in to Courtneys house with his mother, he and Aimee come to the conclusion that she just might be possess [...]


    5. This was a really interesting book It was a really good storyline, but I wish that there was some way to explain the background of Alan I want to know about his dad


    6. I picked this book up at Barnes Noble I think in January and sadly it was sitting on the shelf until now I had read the first chapter and got distracted with another book so this one got left behind Now the other day I was just sitting on the couch thinking what am I going to read next and made myself pick it up and start reading I m happy to say I did it This book ended up being one of my favorites The story line is amazing and nothing like what I ve read before It s about possession but it als [...]


    7. inkscratchers I fell in love with this cover the first time I saw it, read the blurb which totally had me gagging to read it, but later made the connection that one of the authors, Carrie Jones was the same author that wrote the Need series, which I totally didn t connect with, so I had very mixed expectations about this one.This book came as a total shock to me It was totally original, fast paced, exciting and had just the right amount of totally cute romance to seal the deal The plot was so un [...]


    8. This was actually pretty good It surprised me The characters were actually likable, mostly because they were proactive and decisive, not standing around with their thumbs up their asses trying to figure out what, if anything, to do next Aimee was a breath of fresh air because she wasn t the typical flaky teen heroine and Alan, Mr Half Navajo Half German football god Swoon And I generally dislike both guys with long hair and football players There s romance, mystery, humor and horror, and the sup [...]


    9. Alrighty, sounds spine tingling right This was a day one book, at the BEA, first thing in the morning I ran across it and thought Exorcism of Emily Rose I m In So later that afternoon during the speed dating with YA and middle shool authors, when Carrie came to our table and talked about how her and Steven wrote this book in a month via email and had SO MUCH FUN, I was even sold.Now I tell you what an idiot I am Seriously Somehow I didn t realise that the Carrie Jones I met, and who s book I wa [...]


    10. After Obsession reminds me a lot of Cryer s Cross same kind of deal the town is haunted by some mysterious being that possesses individuals and drives them insane The only difference is After Obsession is double the length and takes twice as long to get into I will admit that by the time I was halfway done I would have rather gouged my eyes out with a cafeteria spork that continue reading, but I pulled through, and I am way glad I did because after the shaky and slow beginning, I really began ge [...]


    11. Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyParanormal YA veteran Carrie Jones brings her romantic sensibilities and supernatural flare to a joint writing effort with horror scribe Steven E Wedel in the standalone novel AFTER OBSESSION, a sort of teen version of Paranormal Activity meets interracial love story Two authors means twice the talent and double the fun, right Sadly not in this case Carrie and Steven each created a character and took turns telling chapters from their POV Carrie s Aimee [...]


    12. After Obsession is maybe the only story about possession that I have read, liked and not been too scared to close my eyes and go to sleep Kudos I really enjoy Jones writing style especially in her Need series I think that she and new comer and debut author Wedel pull off the dual alternating perspectives well here, a hard feat by my estimation I will say that I found it doubtful that Aimee would have dumped Brandon, whom she s been dating forever, get over it and start dating Alan in less than 2 [...]


    13. I ve been trying to think of a polite way to write this, but I think the best thing would be to be honest This book was terrible The amount of clich s in these pages, not only in the characterizations but in the writing itself is astounding The characters are less than one dimensional, with mood swings that baffle the reader Some of their actions like Aimee dropping the boyfriend she s had for years after meeting a new, hotter guy in a day make no logical sense whatsoever Neither Aimee with her [...]


    14. I love Carrie Jones, and was insanely happy that I got to meet her at BEA, where I picked up a copy of this book.I enjoyed it immensely I loved how it hopped between the two characters perspectives Sometimes this is done poorly, but I don t think it was at all The characters ere well drawn I did not want to put it down I stuck it over to my friends house and when she wasn t looking I would sneak peeks at it, trying to finish it as soon as possible And I must say, the knife scene was insane I m p [...]



    15. Originally posted at Read Me Bookmark Me Love MeAfter Obsession is a creepy supernatural read with some truly chilling moments don t read it at night If you re looking for a nice blend of romance and supernatural thriller, this is the book for you Aimee Avery and Alan Parson alternate as narrators as they both deal with the consequences of a suspicious drowning Courtney, Aimee s best friend and Alan s cousin, has summoned a ruthless demon in her attempts to bring back her dead father Will she ma [...]


    16. Das Fantasy Jugendbuch Spirit Du geh rst mir aus der gemeinsamen Feder von Carrie Jones und Steven E Wedel ist d ster, magisch und absolut anders.Ausschlaggebend das Buch zu lesen war f r mich das wundersch ne Cover Allerdings h tte ich hinter diesem Jugendbuch niemals eine solche d stere Handlung erwartet, aufgrunddessen ist im Nachhinein betrachtet, das Cover sogar recht gruselig, aber absolut passend zum Inhalt gew hlt Als die Protagonistin Aimee von ihrem absoluten Lieblingsort, dem Fluss hi [...]


    17. Okay let s get straight to the point Overall this book was good However there was a lot I liked about this book and a few parts that I didn t I like the whole possession part of the story I can see how someone would think of sacrificing their soul in a desperate attempt to save a loved one What I don t really like is that this book was written as a young adult I feel that I would have taken it seriously if it were written as an adult book I feel teenagers don t have the experience needed to hel [...]


    18. This book was everything I despise Insta love, a terrible narrative, split perspectives, and two authors I have never read a book by than one author that I either a , enjoyed or b , found to be enjoyable but riddled with errors.I came here for Carrie Jones I read the Need series, and I loved the first three books and endured the last So I thought something new and fresh from her would be just what I needed.Boy, was I wrong.The cover was lovely which reeled my silly little teenage self in, but i [...]


    19. I decided to read this book cause i have been reading dytopian utopian books lately and my system just craves for a YA Fantasy novel The cover art really caught my attention , i mean come on ain t the cover just so beautiful really captivating if you ask meso what to say about the book I think the book is kinda good the first couple of pages was tolerable, the first part of the book was kinda all over the place the plot was not that concrete and so does the characters We are intoduce to a two ma [...]


    20. This book was absolutely amazing Carrie Jones became one of my favorite YA authors last year when I happened across Need and quickly bought the series After Obsession was another happy find I hadn t realized it was coming and I jumped on it when I saw it released I read it in two days, struggling to savor every gorgeous, intriguing, breath taking word as I raced from scene to scene, chapter to chapter dying to know what would happen next Carrie crafts the best YA MCs, strong and good, flawed lik [...]


    21. I ve been really excited to finally read a Carrie Jones novel, but after reading After Obsession, I can t say I m too impressed.The whole idea of possession and cool powers is a good idea, but I don t think the authors executed it really well I wish there would ve been intake on Aimee and Alan s powers as well as history on them This story alternates point of views with Aimee and Alan which I liked The relationship between Alan and Aimee seemed real and I liked how they didn t love each other [...]


    22. I knew that I wanted to read this I really enjoyed the first two of Carrie Jones Need trilogy I haven t read the third yet but I took the title to mean some sort of stalker y goodness I was wrong.There are four stages of demonic possession Obsession is the third After obsession Full blown possession Yes This book deals with possession AWESOME As you probably know, I am a huge, huge fan of scary movies and the ones that always creep me out the most Possession ones.And this one Yes So, so scary So [...]


    23. Hey, kids It s a YA paranormal done right A fun and different story certainly not what I was expecting , told in alternating point of views, which kept the voices nicely distinct I also loved that the guy was half Navajo, and used Native American rituals and magic to fight the curse I m sad that there s not a sequel at least thus far , because I would really like to see the further adventures of Aimee and Alan


    24. I don t normally give out 1 star ratings I have to really, really hate a book for me to give it the lowest rating, and the thing is, I don t really hate this book It was just bad It was boring and painful to read and I have no idea how I managed to make it to the end The idea behind the book is good, I just think it was badly executed.


    25. Originally reviewed on The Book SmugglersAimee has always been a little different Beautiful but withdrawn, Aimee has the ability to heal with her touch, and has frightening premonitions when she dreams Though her gifts run strong, Aimee hides and pushes away her abilities for fear of ending up like her mother, who had similar powers but was consumed by madness, drowning herself in the river While the loss of her mother leaves a huge hole in her family, Aimee struggles to maintain the balance of [...]


    26. 3.5 5Aimee Avery is not like other girls her age When she dreams, she sees flashes of the future horrible images that she can t stop from coming true No one knows her secret, though her dad suspects that Aimee maybe hiding something just like her mother before her, who died Alan Parson is keeping secrets too He has his own spirit guide, and he also sees things like Aimee, who he recognises from his visions the first time they meet in real life Alan and Aimee are connected by their abilities and [...]


    27. Das Cover Abgebildet ist ein kleiner See, rings herum hohe B ume ber dem See schwebt eine junge Frau barfu in einem langen, matt purpurfarbenen Kleid Sie schaut meiner Meinung nach sehr besitzergreifend, streckt die H nde leicht zu den Seiten aus Der Titel ist in einer sehr h bschen Schrift Man kann viel in das Cover hineininterpretieren, aber alles in allem ist das Cover mit seinen hellen, aber doch recht k hlen Farben sehr passend zur Geschichte gestaltet worden Mir pers nlich gef llt das Orig [...]


    28. Told in alternating view points from Aimee and Alan, After Obsession is one heck of a paranormal thriller that will have you obsessed An exciting blend of Indian mythology and demonic possession, this is a fast paced read that is guarantees a couple of chills as the plot barrels on to a satisfying ending The alternating point of views made this novel special, especially since they were written by two separate people but jived so well together I liked how powerful Aimee was and how she had a few [...]


    29. After Obsession Review at Fangs, Wands and Fairy DustBlogger copy received at Book Expo America without expectation of review.Authors The writing team of Carrie Jones Need, Captivate, Entice and Steven E Wedel several prior publications were hooked up by fellow author Melissa Marr There is a big club, I knew it at a speed dating event at a conference in Oklahoma Apparently, according tot the interview at the back of the book Steven tied Carrie up taking away from the YA aspect here and forced he [...]
