Rating: 4/5 stars

I enjoyed this book, maybe not as much as I thought I was going to, but I still did nonetheless. I was really looking for a witchy novel that wasn't too complex that I could easily read. This fit the bill, and had a school setting! However, I think I set my expectations a little high.

The book was short, meaning not a lot could happen. Looking back things were pretty face-paced, which I enjoyed immensely. It didn't drag on and on like some books I've read. The plot was nice, there was mystery and romantic undertones, and I genuinely liked the characters.

But I did have a few qualms which lowered this book to a 4-star instead of a 5-star rating. The first being that some things felt to easy to me. Stuff that everyone was stressing on for the entire book was resolved too quickly. Another, there's a dislike turned love relationship that seemed more of an insta-love situation to me. Also, it was short meaning not a lot of character development could happen and not a lot of action could happen either.

I am still going to be continuing on with the second book when it comes out. I did enjoy this book quite a bit, and I look forward to reading more by this author.


Thanks for reading
