Alright guys, I’m going to break character for a moment and apologize for being out of it this week. I thought I was going to finally be moving into an apartment. Our little family has been living with my parents for the last 10 months, and we’re ready to get out on our own. But it didn’t work out this time, and I was beyond disappointed. I rearranged my bookshelves though to help me regain a sense of control. Anyway, I promise to be better the rest of the week before I leave for Harry Potterland next week! Hooray!
Okay, and scene!
This charming book is actually being released today. I keep switching my rating on Goodreads between a 3 and a 4. I wouldn’t call this book a new favorite or particularly amazing, but it was still quite enjoyable and offers profusely in entertainment value. Fire Girl tells the tale of Samantha, a sassy, teenage skeptic interning at a lab for the summer. Her world turns upside down though when she meets Daniel, an attractive young man who claims she’s a witch and he’s been bewitched to protect her. Samantha and Daniel are both eager to get rid of each other, Daniel insisting that their bond can only be broken once Samantha accepts who she is.
The circumstances were perfect for comedy and humor. I got good chuckles and smiles out of the book. I appreciated Samantha’s character and her reluctance to accept the supernatural or her witch powers. I often feel that characters are too quick to assume these kinds of roles in other stories. But Samantha’s disbelief and denial serves as a main source of conflict throughout the book. And interestingly enough, she suffers physically from blocking her powers, a nice touch that we don’t see often. Furthermore, the pacing of the writing itself was nice and consistent. Not too fast, not too slow.
Though the premise of the story is really quite simple, there are enough twists and turns to keep the reader engaged. If you’re looking for a light, entertaining read with a strong paranormal romance element, I recommend you give this book a go. The kindle version is currently only 2.99 on Amazon. Goodreads is also holding a giveaway for this book.
