Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz
published by Harlequin Teen
$9.99 (US paperback)
This was a fun little read that while some of it was a bit cheesey, most of it was fantastic. I had lots of fun figuring out what was going on with the characters and really enjoyed their personalities.
The real problem I had with this book was there were a few editing errors. I did read an ARC for this book and I really am hoping these errors were fixed in the final copy. In a few parts I could tell where the author had originally had said something different and went back and changed it and it did not line up properly with what she had said earlier. The reason this really bugged me was because it confused me when it came to a few of the characters personality. Mostly Brendan.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I loved Emma's personality. I liked how she really didn't take crap from anyone and knew how to handle herself. She was a great character. What else was nice was there was the right amount of skepticism from the characters. I find it frustrating when a character spends the whole book not believing what is happening, but it is also weird when the character believes whatever is going on right from the beginning. There needs to be the right amount of "what the hell?? Is this real??" in the story and Spellbound had the perfect amount.
I will definitely be reading the next book in this series whenever that comes out.
My rating: 9/10
