Unfortunately, I didn‘t enjoy this book as much as I hoped. The writing seemed forced and it felted like the author was trying too hard, creating her own colloquial terms like “regs” which just felt forced. The LGBTQ acceptance was nice, but off as well; it felt more like the book was trying to hard to be diverse, instead of just being part of the story. Unfortunately, I don‘t think I will be reading book 2.

I thought this book was delightful! I devoured it and it was exactly the quick, fun read I needed. 💖✨

The romance was wonderful and in true YA fashion the book is full of teen angst. I would have liked more details about the magic system, but I‘m hoping we‘ll get a little more in the second book. And I hope he author writes a short story about Hannah and Veronica‘s trip to NY (which is mentioned many times but never fully explained).

Peddler410 I bought this over the summer but haven‘t gotten to it yet. 3mo
MeganAnn @Peddler410 it‘s perfect for when you‘re in the mood for a fun, quick read. Hope you enjoy it when you get around to reading it! 😊✨ 3mo

Wow! This is such an amazing start to the series! I can't wait for the next book. The way this story is told, you are trying to figure everything out with the main character. It is really well done and well written! 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Dclazygirl I added this to my October TBR but hadn't started reading it yet. This makes me want to start asap! 3mo
Dclazygirl And I didn't know it was going to be a series! 3mo

+3 #teamstoker #scarathlon @TheReadingMermaid

A cool modern interpretation of Salem witches that you don't see much, I think bc authors don't want to go against tradition & history. This was a good intro to a new world but there is a problem thats hard to get past, constant references to a pretty big occurence in NYC way b4 this book takes place made it feel like a sequel. Still a good read with diverse & believable characters. I do recommend.

I asked for queer witches. I got queer witches. It was glorious. Buttload of rep: lesbian mc, bisexual side character, transgender (FTM) side character with a boyfriend, several F/F romances. I have been seriously struggling finding a book with lots of GOOD queer rep that also has a good story and TADA! Here it is!

The mystery was REALLY well built. All the characters were developed equally so there was no obvious villain. Hyped for the sequel.

LeeRHarry This one is pretty good so far 😊 5mo

Did some serious damage to this Nutella latte before I start this new book from The Otto Bookstore!

Witches? Yes! Sapphic witches? YES!! Sapphic witches with ex drama? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY! 😂 I think I‘m in the minority but I actually really liked this one, it was slow in parts and kind of lost its way a few times but I‘m into it! I‘ll definitely pick up the sequel.

It was hard to pick this month! #botm

Butterflyamore I got A Nearly Normal Family, too. I also did Ask Again, Yes as an add on. It was definitely a hard pick this month! So many great choices! 8mo
