Book Review…Spells for Lost Things by Jenna Evans Welch

Willow has never felt like she belonged anywhere and is convinced that the only way to find a true home is to travel the world. But her plans to act on her dream are put on hold when her absent mother drags Willow to Salem, to wrap up the affairs of an aunt Willow didn’t even know she had. An aunt who may or may not have been a witch.

There, she meets Mason. Naturally pulled to one another, Willow and Mason set out to discover the secrets of her family. During all of this, the two can’t help but act on their natural connection. But with the amount of baggage between them and Willow’s growing conviction her family might be cursed can they manage to hold onto each other?

I'm usually not big on the small town romance novels but this one was wonderful! It has a touch of magic, first love and mystery but it's that mixed with the real life situations that make it a compelling story. The story is told from two points of view, Mason and Willows and they both have a powerful story that pulls you in and always wanting more. This is probably one of my favorite books this year. It reminded me why I love reading young adult books! Thank you Rockstar Book Tours and Jenna Evans Welch for sharing this book with me!

Já nem me lembro quando li Amor e Gelato. Só me recordo que li em inglês, e gostei, mas já não tinha ideia de como era a escrita da autora. Posso dizer que adorei. Comecei ontem, só não terminei ontem porque começou a ficar tarde e decidi que era melhor ir dormir.
No entanto, levei o livro para o trabalho, aproveitei as horas de almoço para ler, e agora quando cheguei a casa li as últimas páginas que faltavam. Acho que acima de tudo também não terminei ontem porque não queria estar a ler cheia de sono só porque sim. Queria sentir o livro. E senti, até porque estou com lágrimas nos olhos devido a toda a história do Mason.

Este livro é super cativante, talvez pela história, ou mesmo por toda a aura de magia que envolve a história. É o querer saber mais e mais sobre a Sage, e as cartas que Willow e Mason andam à procura. Estava a gostar mesmo muito, e a razão pela qual não dou as cinco estrelas, é porque acho que faltava mais. O final soube-me a pouco, e é óbvio que vão acontecer mais coisas, e não vamos ter acesso a isso. Depois de ficar tudo bem, gostava de ter acesso a mais.

Comecei a sentir isso quando vi que ainda faltava saber e a acontecer tanta coisa e já faltavam poucas páginas para o fim. A história do Mason é bastante emotiva e eu esperava algo mais grandioso. Eu sei que uma situação complicada como a da mãe dele, não dá para ter finais felizes, mas também não assim.

De qualquer forma é um livro que enche o coração. Eu adoro tudo o que seja relacionado com o paranormal/sobrenatural e apesar de não falar intensamente sobre bruxas, é sem dúvida cativante. As tias são mesmo típicas, e talvez até clichés, mas eu adorei.

O romance não me diz muito, mas quem gosta é um bónus. Lê-se super rápido, e estava mesmo a precisar de uma leitura assim. Para ajudar adoro a capa, e comprei uma edição com edges lindíssimas.

Aconselho a leitura.

The beginning was a slog, it only got interesting in the middle which I have found to be the norm in this authors books. But the ending always make up for it and make it worth it. The characters are good, very well rounded and believable. I did want more witchcraft. The story was good and the twists were amazing. The ending was sweet and felt earned.
