Blog Tour Review - Looking for Lucie by Amanda Addison

 Blog Tour Review - Looking for Lucie by Amanda Addison "Where are you really from?" It's a question every brown girl in a white-washed town is familiar with, and one that Lucie has never been able to answer. All she knows is that her mother is white, she's never met her father, and she looks nothing like the rest of her family. She can't even talk about it because everyone says it shouldn't matter! Well, it matters to Lucie and-with her new friend Nav, who knows exactly who he is-she's determined to find some answers. What do you do when your entire existence is a question with no answer?

 Review - A Pinch of Magic by Michelle Harrison

The Widdershins sisters, Betty, Fliss and Charlie are trapped, prevented from leaving their home on Crowstone by an ancient family curse.  When they inherit three magical objects with the power to change their fate, adventure beckons.  But are they being led into even greater danger?




I absolutely loved A Pinch of Magic! It is a mesmerising tale of sisterhood and redemption, curses and magic. 

It's a fantastic, magical adventure, with three endearing sisters. It's as much about family and sisterhood as it is about magic, though both elements are totally engaging and captivating. I loved the use of the three magical items, how they each represented their recipient in some way, and how they were used together to drive the story forward. The setting was enthralling, a glimpse into a world I'm longing to explore more. The family relationships are also spot on. The sisters often don't get on, there's a lot of bitching, jealousy and resentment, but ultimately there's sibling love, affection and acceptance.

The Widdershins sisters will stay with me for a long time
