This is a book on my #buzzwordAthon readathon list this week! The buzz word is Girl. I’ve had this book on my shelf for probably 5 years. I love this “buzz word” challenge because it forces me to read books that I have on my shelf!
Anyways, I was a little confused at times by this book. There are multiple points of view throughout the book but there’s no warning. I would be reading a chapter and then suddenly I’m reading someone else’s POV in the same chapter. It really slowed my reading and this is a decently short book. I did like that I got to read about so many POV’s but I wish there was some separation there. I did really enjoy many of the characters but some of the romance stuff was a little much for my taste. Almost too corny, at times.
My biggest complaint with this one is that she leads up to all these secrets in this town. I’m so excited to learn about them all and I’m almost finished with the book. She reveals it when she’s wrapping things up. All that build up for nothing? I wanted a lot more about this magic and I didn’t get that. This is mostly a romance story with a touch of magic realism.
It was a cute story but I was a little disappointed in it. It has a beautiful cover and it had so much potential. I think that it was a little too short and being a longer book would have helped the story develop a lot more!
