fantasy friday

it's already friday again! how can this be?? um, i guess i missed a couple of days posting. i don't have any excuse except getting caught up in my summer--sorry!!

so, back to fantasy friday and fantastic book reviews!

highlighted book this week:
Enchanted, Inc. by Shanna Swendson.
Katie Chandler, a small-town girl from Texas, has headed to the big city: New York. Plagued by bizarre incidents and troubling sightings of mythical creatures, she wonders if she made the right decision in leaving her safe hometown. However, her life becomes even more interesting when she learns that she is a magical immune and that the fate of the world may rest on the shoulders of her...complete ordinary-ness.
This book is light-hearted, comical, and a fun read when you want to relax. The characters pull their own weight thanks to their believability and relatability, even as they battle through crazy spells and a myriad of enchantments.
The series has four books, all of which I loved (the second was my very favorite, though). If you want an entertaining read (or four), then this is the fantasy book for you!

  4. lol, i know, what were all these writers thinking? how are we supposed to ever read all these great books?? sigh...i guess we'll just have to struggle (happily) on...
    ; ) glad you liked the review and thanks for the comment! <3

  5. Well I have to admit I've never even heard of this series. I'll have to check it out.

    I really like the concept of being immune to magic instead of all magical-powery since that's already been done (like in my book and a whole bunch of others).

    Thanks for the review!!

  6. you're welcome! i'm so glad this book is getting so much attention!

    Kristin Nelson agreed with you about the unique premise--which is why she agreed to rep Shanna Swendson (in my book, too, the MCs have powers...i hadn't even thought of that!)

    thanks for the comment! phew, i'm glad people liked fantasy friday this week!
