What to say about this book? Hmm, Second Chances. Well, I started it this morning around 5:45am and here it is 4:06pm and I am writing a review! Mind you I had to stop to be a mom and do some school work.
Second Chances is about just that, second chances. It shows that for everything there is a reason, even if you can't see it at the moment that it's happening. Maybe, just maybe you can finish this book with the feeling that there is still good in this world and people do forgive, people can . . at times . . admit when they were wrong about something. AND maybe, just maybe you can walk away from this book looking at others in a different light. You NEVER know what life it is that they have had . . get to know a person before you judge them. This book for sure shows the way things can go from good to bad so quickly and just how it can take a million times that to make it go back to good.
I completely enjoyed this book, and would highly recommend it.
Of Witches and Warlocks: The Trouble with Spells

This book happened to find me. Since getting and falling in love with Nook this past Christmas, I have made some great friendships. One of those is with Bookish Snob. So far, I give her 100% recommendations rate. She has not brought to me a bad book yet. This one here, is just another of her super great picks.
This book took me a few chapters to get into, and I'm not sure why that was. (I am a wife, mother, student with finals coming up . . ) However, once I got into this book I didn't want to put it down. There were surprises all throughout. Just when I would think, Oh . . I got this! Nope, I didn't have it.
The book has emotional pull. One moment your happy, the next your sad . . you can feel their pain, their fear. It's a wonderful look into the journey of Portia Mullins as she step forward into a world of unknown.
I am excited to read the following books in this series. This is also something, my 17 yr old might like to read . . if I were to ever let her touch my ereader.
