Velveteen by Daniel Marks
Goodreads synopsis:
Velveteen Monroe is dead. At 16, she was kidnapped and murdered by a madman named Bonesaw. But that's not the problem.
The problem is she landed in purgatory. And while it's not a fiery inferno, it's certainly no heaven. It's gray, ashen, and crumbling more and more by the day, and everyone has a job to do. Which doesn't leave Velveteen much time to do anything about what's really on her mind.
Velveteen aches to deliver the bloody punishment her killer deserves. And she's figured out just how to do it. She'll haunt him for the rest of his days. 
It'll be brutal . . . and awesome.
But crossing the divide between the living and the dead has devastating consequences. Velveteen's obsessive haunting cracks the foundations of purgatory and jeopardizes her very soul. A risk she's willing to take—except fate has just given her reason to stick around: an unreasonably hot and completely off-limits coworker.

Velveteen can't help herself when it comes to breaking rules . . . or getting revenge. And she just might be angry enough to take everyone down with her.

I absolutely can't wait for this book to come out. It isn't released in the US until October, I don't think, and I'm not sure it's been picked up at all for UK publication, so this one will have to be a Book Depository order, but I honestly don't mind. It looks like it will be exactly my kind of thing.
I actually heard about this one when I started using YouTube more often, and started subscribing to more and more booktubers, and Danny Marks (as he is known on youtube) is one of them! His videos are really entertaining and I love watching all of them, so I think you guys should go and check him out. Here is the link to his channel (because I'm helpful like that).
So yeah, definitely check out his youtube channel, and then check out Velveteen. It looks amazing, and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy! There is going to have to be a pre-order happening sometime soon!
