Book Review: Casting Spells (Sugar Maple, #1) by Barbara Betton

Casting Spells (Sugar Maple, #1)Casting Spells by Barbara Bretton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay…this book right here was a quick read for me-one because I don’t read books about knitting, and two, I honestly enjoyed this book a lot. The action, the Fae, and the love sparking between Chloe and Luke makes me wanna get the rest of this book series and marathon this book. Now I thought I wouldn’t like this book because of the knitting thing, but if you take that out and fall in love with the town, the townsfolk (vampires, fae, witches, shapeshifters, warlocks, sprites) then you got one hell of a book.

But what is this amazing book about?

Chloe Hobbs is the owner of the knitting shop Sticks and Strings, and she’s a half-human, half-sorcerer who was human, never gotten her powers at all….until the death of a woman named Suzanne died and then all of a sudden, the town of Montiplier (as soon as I saw that town’s name, I ironically thought of Markiplier-if you know who I’m talking about, then you’ll get it) decided that oh, Sugar Maple needs a police station.

Problem with that….

1.) Basically, there’s no crime in Sugar Maple. None what so ever.

and Two…well, there is no two. All except the supernatural, Fae things, then that’s it.

Enter Luke MacKenzie: a 100% human who’s there to solve Suzanne’s murder…but everytime he and Chloe touch….to quote Cascada, ‘it feels like magic.’ For reals. When they touch, fireworks goes off, and then that’s when Chloe gets her magic.

But of course, we have some stupid people who wants the Book of Spells and take it away from Chloe. AKA Isadora, the Fae who really hates Chloe-to me, FOR NO REASON-and the fight between her and Chloe, along with her son Dane (who I hated so much-I liked his twin Gunnar better) almost destroyed Sticks and Strings, just for the book. But Chloe banished her and she also thought that Luke was dead, but he was protected by the Book of Spells, which was actually a composition book.

After the fight between Chloe, Luke, and Isadora, Luke left, and our new sorceress was sad, knowing that she and Luke couldn’t have a relationship at all. But he came back, and he’s staying, so that’s good and MY OTP GOT TOGETHER. AWE YISS.

Happy 3-Year Anniversary to RebelleFleurx!


Three years.

Three years on WordPress blogging about my life at first, then this blog turned into a book blog because I loved blogging about books, posting up book reviews of the books I’m reading, and sometimes blog about life a little bit. But honestly I’d never thought I’d make it three years on this blog, but I did. And I started this blog at school because I felt like no one was reading my original blog on Blogger. And now that it has been three years of me blogging about books, I’m glad I’ve made the right choice-because I love this blog so much.

This blog is my baby, like the Winchester’s Car, and I’m glad that I’ve been here this long. So poor the bubby, folks, because I don’t think I’ll ever leave WordPress ever.

And also, to the peeps reading my blog every time I post, thank you. From the bottom of my heart-thank y’all so much.

Book Review: All The Weyrs of Pern by Anne McCaffrey

All the Weyrs of Pern (Pern, #11)All the Weyrs of Pern by Anne McCaffrey

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book…this book, this book, this book. I’ve been wanting to read this book, and every single time I don’t get to it, I always have to turn it in. But not this time. Honestly, I enjoyed this book, even though some of the parts were a bit boring. Though I loved the dragon parts and the fighting Thread and the rest, the one thing that irritated me the most in this book was the relationship between Jaxom and the Aivas. It irritated me because Jaxom seemed so dependent on the Aivas instead of thinking for himself in the situations presented in the book.

The one thing that made me sad a bit was the ending. The ending made me go ‘nope’ when I read it-mostly because of the way Masterharper Robinton died-though he died peacefully in his sleep, including the Aivas-but honestly I wanted him to be alive for one more book, one more novel, then he can be put to rest. But when I read it I wanted to cry so bad for Masterharper Robinton-even his funeral was perfect and lovely. But honestly it was still perfect all the same and now I’m glad I’ve read the book and I enjoyed it-a lot.
