      Was she strong enough to carry all these Burdens on her own Or would they swallow her whole I knew this book was the one I d been looking for when I flipped to the last page of the prologue and saw a glimpse of a name I thought to be Noa, which was exactly what I was searching for the day earlier when on the look out for fictional characters with the name Noah, for some inexplicable reason I never did find anything other than the biblical story, so please let me know if you have any solid book r [...]

      Like many others I read Leslye Walton s stunning debut novel, The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender and fell entirely in love with it It was a full five stars from me and is one of my all time favourite books having read it on multiple occasions So needless to say I was very eager to read her next book and luckily enough I was granted an eARC on NetGalley Happy days And I am delighted I read it as I found the storyline to be highly appealing The Price of the Occult follows 17 year ol [...]

      3.5 stars Had some very beautiful writing, unique atmosphere, and I loved where it took place the Pacific Northwest It had a lot of things I enjoyed, but some of the plot just didn t work for me Still think a lot of people will like it though Also, trigger warning for self harm.

      If you re a romantic person and love slow paced paranormal stories, you need to read this book I m not, but I have to say that this book surprised me in many ways, despite being flawed and not exactly my thing.Also, it s about witches, and that aspect was great.I haven t read a book as atmospheric since Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Mo ra Fowley Doyle The Price Guide to the Occult is set in the Pacific Northwest, on a rainy island with its own history and secrets I loved the descriptions of [...]

      On the evening of Halloween, Nor marched down Meandering Lane after her shift at the Witching Hour.A few years ago, a read a very strange and very beautiful book aptly named The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender It took me completely by surprise and stole my heart with its gorgeous writing, memorable characters, and rich atmosphere that made everything so damn emotional even when nothing much was happening I have long awaited another book by the author but and I feel so sad about thi [...]

      3.5 starsI received an ARC of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review This YA book has everything a magical, witchy book should have magic duh , strong female characters, female friendships, generational lines and support, healers, herbs and plants and spells, some questionable characters and a perfect setting PNW for it all to take place I m always intrigued by a story line where generations of strong, females hold each other up from generation to generation think Practical Ma [...]

      I just saw this Despite having given The Strange and Beautiful Sorows of Ava Lavender a low rating of 2 stars, the author s writing absolutely captivated me so I ll be giving her future books a chance again and again until I find one that I utterly adore Can t wait for this one

    8. Gabby on said:

      Thanks to Walker Books Aus for sending me a copy of this book for review Trigger warning for self harm I really wanted to enjoy this book, but I guess it just wasn t for me The concept intrigued me at firs, as did the beautiful cover, but pretty much as soon as I started reading, I just couldn t connect to it Some things that I enjoyed Walton s writing is really beautiful, poetic and captive Despite not loving this story, she is a beautiful writer It s a fantasy book that covers topics of mental [...]

      I absolutely loved this book I became so invested in every character and loved how the imagery painted this amazing island full of differences The plot was enough to make me not want to put this down, but I read slow so I could absorb every aspect Highly recommend this book I received this book from NetGalley for my unbiased review

    10. Emma on said:

      I don t even care what this is about, all I know is The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender is one of my favourite books of all time and I cannot WAIT to see what Leslye Walton is coming out with next D

      Thank you to the author and NetGalley for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review 2.5 stars Trigger Warning Self harm and mention of suicide I LOVED Waltons The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavander, and so I tried, unsuccessfully, to not compare it to The Price Guide to the Occult it didn t match up Not even close.Both the title and the synopsis made the book sound amazing and I was looking forward to reading about witches and spells and all that wicked stuff, esp [...]

      I received an ARC of this novel via NetGalley and Candlewick Press in exchange for an honest review.When the original eight began to colonize Anathema Island, they were not prepared for Rona Blackburn, an eccentric healer and witch, to claim her stake in the land An injury brings one of the men to Rona s door resulting in a brief but passionate affair Rona becomes pregnant but the man s fear and guilt leads to the men burning her out of her home in hopes of her leaving the island Rona places a c [...]

      I so did not want to DNF another book But I have to I m DNFing this on page 125, but I actually stopped reading around page 100 and did some scanning to see if anything happened that made me want to keep reading, butNothing happens in this book.It meanders for pages and pages between past and present, and it s just infodump after infodump The book even OPENS with a monster infodump It s written well enough, but something like that is going to do nothing to hook a reader but especially not a pic [...]

      I received a digital copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Walton s first novel is one of my favorite young adult novels, so I eagerly awaited this release.I enjoyed the atmosphere of a foggy island in the Pacific Northwest I felt like the setting had the perfect small town feel I loved all of the witchy vibes in the book, from spells to healers to animal communication Nor Blackburn was an excellent protagonist, with her own self doubts and secrets There are several m [...]

      The Price Guide to the Occult is a paranormal novel that focuses on the life of one Nor Blackburn, the descendant of a great witch But just because she is a descendant, doesn t mean she is a great witch herself, or does it This novel is in the best sense, your classic Paranormal YA that makes you feel like magic could be happening anywhere in your wold, but this one takes a turn for the worst When Nor s mother starts selling a book making wishes come true, the world cries in happiness, but only [...]

    17. Veronica on said:

      When I first read the synopsis for this book, I was intrigued, but I also didn t have very high hopes, because in my experience, modern day settings with magic involved can quickly go downhill However I was pleasantly surprised when I started reading It was the perfect mix of magic and modern society.While we ve been seeing diverse characters and mental health in young adult novels, I haven t seen one that involves self harm, at least to the extent to which it plays a major role in Nor s life.

      CONTENT WARNING This book contains self harm and magical parental abuse My review will discuss both briefly.I read some reviews on this one after I finished it, and I can see why some folks wouldn t like it very well Price Guide is a little slow and quiet despite the fantastic magic of Anathema Island and the Blackburn family But I think the book s pace suited the setting.A quick plot synopsis Nine generations ago, Rona Blackburn arrived on Anathema Island in the Salish Sea with the magical abil [...]

      I found it frustratingly difficult to get into this book, which was sad, as I liked the plot I did read it in rather a disjointed way I read about half of it, then stopped for three days because I had the flu, then finished it which definitely affected my appreciation of it, but even so I don t know I had a few issues with it Firstly, I just couldn t really connect with the writing style The sentences themselves were very choppy, and so were the scenes and chapters it moved very rapidly from one [...]

      I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I loved The Price Guide to the Occult because it had everything I wanted in a book about witches strong female friendships and support networks, characters that felt detailed and fully fledged, witches that were than just their powers, and a beautifully written setting I wanted to lose myself in the island and it s community Anathema was the best part of the book I loved Nor and her best friend Savvy and how supporti [...]

      Off the coast of Washington there is an small island and witches live there A small town s worth of other people also live there but the witches are really the important bit Well, semi witches is probably the accurate descriptor for the last 8 generations of Blackburn women For hundreds of years this family of witches were powerful but good peeps overall Unfortunately humans beings aren t known for their high tolerance for magical entities real or imagined This lead to a many generations of wit [...]

    22. Jackie on said:

      3.5 stars Books like this are always hard to write reviews for because it sort of hovered around the midpoint between really good and not so great for most of my read so I m going to make a sort of pro and con list in a way to balance out those feelings What I enjoyed was the subtle nods to classic witch stories as featured in novels like Practical Magic , there s nothing interesting to read than a long line of strong women taking care of each new generation under the looming threat of a curse [...]

    23. Ninoshka on said:

      This book was provided to me by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review When I first heard that she was coming out with a second novel, my mind didn t know what to do with itself because I was so excited Ava Lavender s story has been one of my favorite books for years and I try to make it a point to reread it every year, but I also knew that I should try to put that story as far from my mind when I began reading this one I didn t want to expect certain things from this book and knew that the [...]

      Disclaimer I received this free book from Netgalley This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest TW Self HarmI have some major thoughts about this one all of them good, but Walton really made me think about the nature of witches here The witches in this book are not only all women, but also cursed to fall in love with one of the male descendants of the original Eight So we ve added on to witches, temptress which was always something witches were accused of before too And what I r [...]

      I received this book free from the publisher through NetGalley In exchange, I was asked to write an honest review and post it My thanks to them both.This was such a fun read, I love a good story with some magic in it I heard about this book on a Book Riot podcast as one of the most anticipated new books for 2018 And the cover was gorgeous Nor Blackburn is a witch, along with all the other women in her family going back to her a few times over great grandmother Rona Blackburn Rona had all the tal [...]
