I will admit I did not read the summary before adding this book to my TBR or my hold list. Instead I was captivated by the title and cover and went WITCHES and thus ends the story of why I added this book.
I read this book in one day. I have no regrets because it was absolutely fan-freaking-tastic.
Christina Lauren has been hit and miss for me quite a bit. There are some books of theirs I enjoy more than others, but this book really knocked it out of the park to me. This one was superbly well done and I am still thinking about it days later, so I know it’s a good book when that happens to me. What can I say about this book other than sing its praises? Not much because the experience of reading this book was lovely.
Let me preface this by saying I have never read Practical Magic or its sequel. In fact, I have heard of them, but never read them. I will be reading them at some point, as this book was amazing! I really liked it, and I think it was quite emotional at some points.
First off, I have heard nothing but good things about this book. And I was really excited to read it despite not loving The Beautiful Ones. I loved the writing in that book, and I felt that this book would give me everything I could want. Suffice to say, this book should be on everyone’s lists who likes scary stories, gothic horror, or just a good paranormal mystery.
