I can’t help the huge smile that is plastered on my face right now after turning the last page in SPELLBOUND. To say I enjoyed SPELLBOUND would be an understatement. I know I always say this but I didn’t know what to expect with SPELLBOUND. I didn’t expect to find myself grinning from ear to ear after I turned page after page. This book was not only funny, filled with mush, and sarcastic remarks, it was also able to balance the lighthearted with some pretty dark situations. Here’s the synopsis from Goodreads:
What's a girl to do when meeting The One means she's cursed to die a horrible death?
Life hasn't been easy on sixteen-year-old Emma Conner, so a new start in New York may be just the change she needs. But the posh Upper East Side prep school she has to attend? Not so much. Friendly faces are few and far between, except for one that she's irresistibly drawn to—Brendan Salinger, the guy with the rock-star good looks and the richest kid in school, who might just be her very own white knight.
Emma was not only funny; she was strong headed and stood up for herself. She was an easy character to relate to, her sense of humor made her endearing, her need to stand up for the ones she loved made her admirable, and her past made her seem that much stronger as a person. I related to her on all different levels and it was great to see her character change and grow.
Her love interest, Brendan, was a knight in shining armor; he was strong, smart, and would do anything to protect Emma. I fell in love with him just as much as Emma did. The chemistry between Brendan and Emma was perfect.
Once I started, I couldn’t put the book down. SPELLBOUND kept me riveted, even though I wanted more Witch-tastic-ness (because I found that really fascinating and I want more Witch books out there!) there was just enough to hold my attention and leave me wanting more. This book is a must-read with enough love to keep you satisfied, enough humor to keep you grinning, and enough tension to keep you on the edge of your seat. You should definitely pick it up when it comes out on June 28th!
