Book Summary:

Sixteeen-year-old Meredith is fed-up with her feuding family and feeling invisible at school – not to mention the witch magic that shoots out of her fingernails when she’s stressed. Then sweet, sensitive Jack comes into her life and she falls for him hard. The only problem is that he is periodically possessed by a destructive centuries-old curse. Meredith has lost her heart, but will she also lose her life? Or in true fairytale tradition, can true love’s kiss save the day?

Book Review:

So I loved this.

I'm kind of annoyed at myself because I have followed Katharine and Elizabeth for the longest time on Twitter and have wanted to read this book for the same amount of time and of course I loved it.

Also side-note, I started playing the audiobook this morning and only after a couple of breaks and my phone dying I finally finished this in one day! I was not expecting that! (Also I really liked the narrator too!)

I loved everything about this book. I loved Merry who was a realistic portrayal of a sixteen-year-old girl and I loved Leo with all of my heart too. I also loved the relationship between the two of them as I don't think sibling relationships are explored that much at all in YA so this was a nice change. Also, I liked Jack and Merry together and apparently, I have to read the third book to find out what happens so...

I was just really captivated from the first page and didn't know when to stop so I didn't. I think there were some nice storytelling and I wasn't sure where the story was going to go to but I enjoyed where it did. I also think that the story was grounded, it still kept Merry's problems relating to school at the centre and a lot of the setting was grounding relying on the family dynamics which again I liked.

It also feels like a nice contained story although you do get glimpses of a sequel so I will be on that soon. I just hope that it is not four years later this time because I will be really sad if that is the case.

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
