A f/f rom-com with a paranormal element — and a beautiful story that makes you smile. While I think RWRB is still better, this one is no sluggish second book.
When we do get women in myth they are usually evil or temptresses or some other variety of a woman who is considered bad or wrong. Much like Circe, Ariadne takes the myth as we know it and turns it into a powerful look at sexism and empowerment.
ACOSF brings us back into the world of ACOTAR — this time bringing Nesta and Cassian to the forefront. This book is a darker fantasy, but an emotional journey.
This book was both intriguing and well written. It is very firmly a historical fiction book, which I did not realize when I started. But honestly, the book was so good!
The Once and Future Witches is an excellent book full of an amazing amount of character development and interest.
I received this arc in exchange for an honest review. I don’t have much to say about this book overall, other than I didn’t really like it.
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.
