I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.


Spellbound - Cara Lynn Shultz Enjoyable reincarnation story. I was able to get lost in the story for the most part. It wasn't too heavy into the paranormal or urban fantasy as I had thought when I picked it up. The slight magic elements to it made it more interesting, since the curse or magic didn't overwhelm the story. The story was really interesting, I tend to lean more towards the novels that are clearly paranormal romance or urban fantasy, so this was a nice change.

I actually found myself tearing up a little when reading about Emma's past. I couldn't imagine some of the things she went through. It was a different kind of character. She just wanted to be invisible, even if it didn't work out for her. At all.

I liked Emma. I didn't so much like Brendan at first. I didn't like the snubbing, I didn't like the reason behind it. I thought it was weak point, since I was expecting something big to have been the reason for the snub. But after about half the book or so, I started to come around and started to like him. I don't know if I completely loved him at the end though.

I'm curious to know if this will be a series or a stand alone novel. I got the galley on my kindle, and I have to say, the galleys don't format the the kindle well at all. There was a bit at the end, after the book ending, that I wasn't sure what was going on, but it did make me wonder if there will be a second novel. If there is, I'm excited to read it. Even though I didn't like Brendan at first, I still really liked this book and will look for more.
