Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an e-arc in exchange for an honest review!
“Byron Frost might have the name and face of a poet, but he had the soul of a mechanical pencil.”
The BANTER oh my god.
AND THE NAMES IN THIS BOOK. MR. BRIGHTSIDE IS MARRIED TO ROSS GRIMJOY.
“Alexander the Great-Looking”!!!
“’Since no one got all ten right, no one gets the extra points. Alas. Maybe this upsets you, but I have found that bitterness only enhances the sweetness of existence…’ Mr. Brightside paused to look dramatically out the window.”
I am literally keeling over in stitches.
“Practicing my lurking. I’m interning with Krampus for the holidays”
I literally…cannot breathe.
And then you had beautiful lines like,
“She made him feel all five senses at once, and the bright light of her spirit consumed him.”
“Even though she was scared of the house, Ash swore he could smell the beginnings of Halloween magic in the air — clove and honey with a hint of moonlight to come.”
“The words dissipated from her suddenly dry mouth like fog burning up in the sun”
“I think Orion Parker may be my ‘solid, mortal man’ and I may indeed prefer him to the centaur I was holding out for”
This book was amazing. Normally I don’t like YA contemporary romances. But THIS BOOK. I was smiling and sighing all the way through it. I cannot explain how cute and atmospheric it is. This will be the perfect fall/Halloween read.
I loved ‘The Coven’ and their friendship. I like how supportive they were of each other, and in general I felt that the authors did an incredible job of selling both the friendships and the romances. I feel that their styles merged so wonderfully together, as they already had similar styles. It was a seamless blend that just hit the right tone and spot.
Plus, all the amazing one liners in the books. Onny’s story was definitely my favorite (I have a soft spot for “enemies-to-lovers” and grumpy hero. This was just so adorable and I can’t stop loving it.
A PERFECT witchy read for October.
