The post that started this. I’ve never even heard of this author or this book before this blew up.

Thanks for posting the whole novel as the blurb, dear author, I don’t even NEED to read the book now. ๐Ÿ˜€

Note: This is about the BLURB not the AUTHOR. ๐Ÿ˜€

The author (allegedly) deleted her original blurb, so here it is:

It took me a little bit to get used to the format of narration. A friend compared it to Beverly Hillbillies, and I agree. It works for this book and the main character. Makes me think I should re-try some DNFed books for this reason. Maybe if I read more I might get into it.

The world-building was intense and sucked me in.

The characters were amazing as well. I found it compelling, even if you hated a few of them, you hated them but loved them at the same time. If I’m making sense. ๐Ÿ˜›

My main nick-pick is that there was a love story. I’m tired of the constant tru luv in YA fiction. It’s over-used, imho.

I really liked the fact that this was not just a Wiccan book, and that it focused on Neo-Paganism views on the holiday as well.

I liked how some of the recipes were vegetarian friendly.

There was a little bit of everything for everyone.

I wish there was a bit more advanced information, I felt like I didn’t learn anything I didn’t read before or researched before.

I recommend this as a good starting place for new neo-pagans, since it feels like a compilation of information in one book.

Also, the cover is cute. It really stands out among other witchy books.
