The Graces
The Graces | Laure Eve
When a glamorous family of teenage witches brings a mysterious new girl into their fold, they unwittingly nurture a powerful black magic that could destroy them all. This paranormal YA fantasy features intrigue, spells, and a devastating twist. In The Graces, the first rule of witchcraft states that if you want something badly enough, you can get it . . . no matter who has to pay. Everyone loves the Graces. Fenrin, Thalia, and Summer Grace are captivating, wealthy, and glamorous. Theyve managed to cast a spell over not just their high school but also their entire townand theyre rumored to have powerful connections all over the world. If youre not in love with one of them, you want to be them. Especially River: the loner, new girl at school. Shes different from her peers, who both revere and fear the Grace family. She wants to be a Grace more than anything. But what the Graces dont know is that Rivers presence in town is no accident. This fabulously addictive fantasy combines sophisticated and haunting prose with a gut-punching twist that readers will be dying to discuss. Perfect for fans of We Were Liars as well as nostalgic classics like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the 1996 movie The Craft, The Graces marks the beginning of a new wave of teen witches.

The first half of this book is like the author was dared to squeeze every cliche and stereotype about YA and paranormal novels into one. Then it seemed like it was going to get interesting! But no, it relied heavily on the POV character at the end knowing what was going on all the time, but hiding it from the reader. Some big reveal!

Also, it‘s not gay enough.

readingjedi Shame, I was intrigued by this one. The cover's nice though. 3y
Clare-Dragonfly @readingjedi I know, right? The blurb sounded great and the book is beautifully produced. I‘m trying to come up with an appropriate metaphor. Pearls before swine? 3y
LibrarianRyan I was so disappointed in this. It‘s like the author wanted to mix up The Craft with We were liars and just gave everyone blahhhhhh 3y

Sweetkokoro Awww, I‘m sorry it turned out to not be good.... At least it looks pretty right? 3y

sprainedbrain That sounds like an eyeroll-a-rama. Thanks for the warning! 3y
MidnightBookGirl That is sad, because that cover is gorgeous. I like an unreliable narrator, but I'm okay skipping this one. :) 3y

This book is kind of teetering on the edge, but if Summer and River get together, it might scrape a pick.

@Sweetkokoro — Wow! You totally get me! What a great #basicwitchswap package. I‘m intrigued by the books. I‘ve never heard of the novel but it sounds right up my alley. I love the tea. I‘m crazy about the Luna and Halloween socks. And THAT POSTER!!! I gasped so loud when I opened it, my husband came in from the other room. I wish I could have fit the whole thing in the picture so the other Littens could see it. It‘s gorgeous! Thank you so much!

Meaw_catlady Wow !! That is so beautiful!!! Happy Halloween !! 🖤🎃🧡 3y
Clare-Dragonfly @Meaw_catlady Happy Halloween! Thank you for running this swap! 3y
sprainedbrain Gorgeous! Happy Halloween to you! 🎃 3y
Sweetkokoro I am so glad you like the poster. I spent hours looking for the perfect print and this particular one just called to me and I was like “this is the one, this is it” I feel like we are very intuitive to each other and that really helped our swap!! I hope you enjoy the novel!! 3y
Clare-Dragonfly @sprainedbrain To you too! Happy Halloween! @Sweetkokoro ❤️❤️❤️❤️🎃🎃🎃🧙🏻‍♀️🧙🏻‍♀️🧙🏻‍♀️🧙🏻‍♀️ 3y

I. FREAKING. LOVED. THIS! The Graces was so hard to put down, I was even trying to sneak a read during my moms bday dinner. I didn‘t like the main character & that‘s ok, do you like everyone you meet? This was a slow burn just building up for the climax that leaves you wanting book 2. I don‘t get the negative reviews.. Continued below⬇️🔮

ReadingVampire I know a lot of people wanted to compare it to The Craft or One of Us is Lying and I tried not to do that and I ended up really enjoying it. Great witchy, twisty read. Maybe you‘ll like it too? 😉 (edited) 4y

A decent enough book. Although the characters are a bit flat, I did rather enjoy the story. It‘s a nice bit of light, summer reading.

This book is tricky. Just when you think you know what kind of story this is and where is going, it totally throws you for a loop. Then it tricks you into a false sense of security, and a moment later it whacks you with something shocking and upsetting.

So it‘s not predictable — some aspects may be (like with whom Wolf is in love), but not the story, I promise.

And yet... I felt a little betrayed. And that made me lower the rating.

Cinfhen I love the photo and great review 💖 5y

I‘m getting “The Craft” vibes.

In other words, I‘m enjoying this more than I thought I would!

MrBook Ohhh, love this cover! 5y
Elisa @MrBook I agree, the cover is very pretty! I have a soft spot for anything with metallic foil on the cover, but the explosion of feathers and shells in the back makes it even better! And oddly calming, somehow. (edited) 5y
eri.reads Just read the summary and I'm in!!! I love me some witchy books! 😁😂 5y
Elisa @eri.reads me too!!! I swear if a book has a hint of witchy, I grab it right off the shelf 😅 The Wicked Deep was my last witchy read before this one!! The world building was pretty good in that one. And that cover 😍😍 5y

River‘s not that likeable until the second half of the novel. Cheers for her to be a strong one instead of a whiny poor me protagonist. Cliffhanger ending and ohhh Lordy I want to we what River has planned !!! Not much of a plot in this one but it was a good read. Can‘t wait to read the next one!!

Starts off slow, but gradually pulls you in, before a thrilling conclusion. The kind of book where you've read 100 pages without realising it. Rating: 4/5.

I don't know why, but July wasn't a great reading month for me. I didn't read a lot, and nothing really grabbed me. I guess the tagged book was the best of what I read. And of course The Mysterious Affair at Styles, since Agatha Christie is always good. #bestofjuly #julyfaves #JubilantJuly #sizzlinsummerbooks

However, I think August will be better, since I just started (and so far am loving) The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.

So, this book... it gripped me so much in the beginning, and then the middle sort of dragged out a bit. But that ending... definitely need to read the next book to make a final decision, or just to find out what happens next... #thegraces #laureeve

One review says this is The Craft meets The Secret History. To that I say: JHRC. Take all my money. (2.84 on Kindle UK.)

Jarryn flew back to Sydney this afternoon, so we did an early Easter exchange. I scored Graces by Laurie Eve and gave my son Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb.
Can I last 'till Easter weekend and read it with chocolate eggs or should I start now?

Hiya, you lovely YA library patrons! Here's what we have rolling out for you on New Teen Tuesday 😆 And don't forget about the new Hogansville library opening tomorrow. We have updated their YA collection, and they have a cute teen section just for you with comfy seats and a study area. Much better than the few dark shelves you used to have, huh? 😜

Ehh. The writing was interesting, but not enough to pull me through a whole lot of nothing happening. I could see the author was going for romantic and surreal but all I got was cliché and flat. Too bad.

annahenke I felt the same way. 6y
Sharanya @annahenke sigh. It had so many avenues for adding novelty to an old premise but...it just didn't take any of them. Too bad. 6y

I actually read most books without ever looking at the blurb! I tend to go on recommendations and synopses online rather than blurbs, which I often find too pithy and a bit misleading. I did read the blurb for this one though, and it definitely got me to pick it up shortly after I got it. #bestblurbs #YA #UKYA #seasonsreadings2016

misswendyd Same! Sometimes I'll get confused after I start reading the book and then have to read the synopsis. 😬 6y

I liked this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️It's getting a lot of negative reviews here and on Goodreads, which I don't really understand. It wasn't amazing and making me run out to buy a copy as gifts for everyone, but I'm looking forward to reading the 2nd book in the series.
