BOOKS READ SO FAR...
I'm looking forward the group read with Annemieke from A DANCE WITH BOOKS, Greg from BOOK HAVEN, and Jolene from JO'S BOOK BLOG.
I read the prequel, which was published years after this title, and loved it, so I went into this story expecting a lot. It didn't help that the movie is one of my favorites, too. The movie fixed everything wrong with the book, so I recomend reading the prequel, THE RULES OF MAGIC, and then watching the Practical Magic movie; skipping this book altogether.
I really don't care for super power elements, and I have been off dystopic YA for a while, so I didn't think this was going to be anything more than three stars at best, but I really liked it! There was about zero romance and no fashion, the two things I loathe in large amounts in YA. The super powers weren't over the top, either. The sequel Never Fade is even better.
I don't cry as a rule over a book, but there was a death at the end of this one that moistened my eyes.
This book made me contentedly happy. The author would be my favorite new author, also.
