THE SWEETEST KIND OF FATE is an excellent follow up to THE BEST KIND OF MAGIC. With high school drama and first love, this reads like a young adult contemporary romance at times. With excellent characters and exciting paranormal aspects, THE SWEETEST KIND OF FATE is a perfect read if you’re looking for something light with a bit of a fantasy vibe.

A PRICE GUIDE TO THE OCCULT immediately drew me in. With it’s intimate voice and rich magical backstory, Nor’s story started strong. Though readers should be warned that A PRICE GUIDE TO THE OCCULT deals with issues of self-harm and child abuse.
DEADLY SWEET’s back copy immediately hooked me. I love cooking shows (there’s something profoundly soothing about sitting down and watching someone bake a cake), so combine that with magic, and I couldn’t wait to start reading.
WHEN THE MOON WAS OURS is an important, excellently-crafted novel. If you love magical realism, you’ll gorge yourself on metaphors, similes, and imagery. However, like most magical realism books, WHEN THE MOON WAS OURS is heavy on emotional growth but light on plot.
SONOFAWITCH! is a quick and fun compilation of stories about witches having various sorts of misadventures. After reading so many heavy stories it was fun to read light, silly stories that effortlessly weaved some magical mishaps into them.
HOOKED ON A WITCH is a captivating story filled with passion, action, and danger which I couldn’t put down. It has a really well thought out plot and a great mythology that was basically an extension of Greek mythology mixed in with witches.
With its small doses of magic and potions, A SECRET HISTORY OF WITCHES is more a historical novel than fantasy. The novel follows six generations of Orchiére women handing down their witchcraft. As knowledge is passed down, elements are lost or corrupted. It doesn’t take long for ancestral rituals to be forgotten in the face of a changing society.
WICKED BITE is a pretty interesting story with an intense central romance and a fun plot with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. Realm Enforcers is one of those book series that I swear up and down that I’ve read some of at some point.
The Alex Craft series one of my favorite urban fantasy book series. So much so that while the last book came out only last year, I felt like it was such a long wait for GRAVE RANSOM. The wait was worth it though!
Revolution is a messy, dangerous business and THE WAKING LAND doesn’t pull punches to depict it. After her father’s failed uprising, Elanna Valtai was taken from her home and placed as a ward within King Erylais’ household. Over 11 years, she learned to hate her homeland and its culture. When another revolution rises Elanna must become a figurehead and unite Caeris, a country that she doesn’t fully love or understand.
