    A cozy witchy read and on nothing less than the subject of true love and soulmates Just the way I like themWhile I may not have the swagger or power of your everyday witch I’ve come to realize that what I can do is still pretty badass I can see true loveI don’t mean the chocolate covered mushy gushy signs of love but real destined to happen happy endings All I need is five seconds of eye contact and I’ll envision anyone’s soul mateI’m a matchmaker cSirens are notoriously manipulative probably because their gift comes with an expiration date It is physically impossible to be so beautiful and powerful their entire lives so they are forced to rely on a concentrated dose of influence Ivy being the one woman brain trust that she is decided to use up her power in high school; a poor choice if you ask me Why be a world leader or cure cancer when you can spend your time standing on top of human pyramids and lying underneath idiotic football players? cSomeday I will get out of here and meet someone amazing and live happily ever after Or not In which case I’ll move in with Amani and her future husband and force them to adopt me cAfter all baking is really not so different from magic Both reuire a basic understanding of the craft; a willingness to experiment and manipulate an existing selection of variables and ingredients Balance patience and creativity are needed from both witches and bakers and isn’t the perfect recipe just an edible spell? cTwo years ago I was cornered at night by a vampire who was afraid he’d just drained the love of his life Spoiler alert he had I remember the blood on his lips as he came at me furious at my confirmation Luckily I had mace in my pocket cwanting someone based on something as trivial and fleeting as social standing is so empty and sad cThey try to look casual pretending not to see the object of their affection but they may as well be lifting their shirts to get his attention“Wow it’s like your own paparazzi only less subtle” I say giving the girls a wave They scowl back Delightful“Yeah it’s the reason I get out of bed in the morning” he deadpans “So where can I meet you?” c“So you accept witchcraft as reality but you draw the line at matchmaking?” cIf you are lucky enough to find love you should celebrate it You should shout it from the rooftops or sing it in a song or compete in a reality show to make your dream comes true You shouldn’t let love pass by unnoticed especially because there are many who will never experience it Like this girl right here c“You guys are joking right?”Amani and I share a glance “I think you’d know if we were telling jokes” I say“Yeah we’re really funny people” Amani replies cSo we almost got eaten alive so what? Somehow being around a bunch of monsters made me feel like of a person c“Where are you? It sounds like there’s hyenas mauling each other in the background”“Nah just a couple of vamps hooking up”“Oh So you’re in a bordello?”“Yup Just a regular Monday night” c“You never know what you’re getting into when you fall in love but that doesn’t mean you avoid the jump” cI know people say you should live every day like it’s your last but sometimes it’s nice to do absolutely nothing; the lack of activity recharges you for whatever lies ahead c

    Amber Sand comes from a family of witches but is not a witch herself Amber does have her own uniue gift however seeing people's true match Amber works in her mother's magic shop in downtown Chicago answering people's uestions about their love life putting her gift to use Things get complicated for Amber when her mom's best friend's son Charlie Blitzman comes to her to help him find his dad's missing girlfriend As the two try to solve the mystery together Amber runs into uestions about her own gift and it's limits and her insecurities of lacking the same powers her mother has I thought the book was really cute but it's one of those books where again it was totally not written with me as the intended audience It's clearly aimed at younger teens and they might even enjoy it much than I did It does deal with a lot of themes that are relevant to growing up like contending with one's parent's expectations of who they ought to be and the reality of who a person is and reconciling the two Also the whole dynamic of relationships and whether they're worthwhile pursuing if they're not lasting is one that is understandable even for those of us who don't know who everyone's soulmate is going to beI did find it a little hokey though when reading the book just the characterization of teenagers in the beginning felt like a bit much Also it felt pretty predictable where the book was going and I just couldn't get on board with the ending I know it was setting up for a seuel but it still felt a little sloppy the way it jut plays out I just think at this point I've read enough that I can't enjoy a book like this any and I've outgrown books about teenagers because they just behave in ways that don't really feel right even if I can understand their behavior and sympathize with it Like Amber's insistence her mother tell her everything felt kind of ridiculous It was an okay book something that might be much enjoyable for younger teens than an decrepit twenty something like me

    This is an eARC all opinions are my ownDNF 25%I don't like to not finish ARC's I feel rude I feel unworthy However I couldn't deal with this one I could see what the author was going for and I was so excited for witches 14 year old me desperately wanted to read anything with a witch in it I loved the idea Hell I wanted to be a witch Unfortunately I am not and double unfortunately this book was falling super flat for me The protagonist who's name I wouldn't be able to remember if she hadn't shared it with me is so boring She truly was the most annoying character I swear she complained about almost everything I know sounds very similar to myself Unfortunately I don't want to read about myself with the lack of bitchy flare something I love about myself It felt incredibly targeted for a younger audience and I know I would have loved this six years ago I overall had a general idea of where the story was going but I just wasn't interested in the slightest I was 25% in and couldn't care about a single character plot point or useless conversation I may come back to this on release day to see if my opinions have changed But for now its a no from me

    This was a really cute debut about Amber Sands a witch from a family of witches who unfortunately hasn’t inherited her mother’s awesome witchy powers What she does have is the abilities of a matchmaker She can stare into your eyes and see the person who is your true love Interesting scenario Except trouble ensues when Amber finally meets a boy she truly likes Charlie and she can see the girl in his happy future who isn’t her I really enjoyed the relationship between Amber and Charlie and also the witch y paranormal stuff Crystal Cestari has a great writing voice Very funny The teenage drama with her mom was classic with witch like complications of course There is also a mystery to be solved and a cool best friend who I liked as well Will definitely be reading book twoPlease excuse typosname misspellings Entered on screen reader

    “The merging of two lives the threshold of possibility it's an energy unlike anything else” Me? Like an ooey gooey romantic novel? Never Ok a little OK OK I LOVED IT Stop hassling me Yep you heard it here I have found an adorable love story that doesn't make me roll my eyes cynically every five seconds You guessed it I'm not really someone who reads lightromantic contemporary novels and that is what this book is at its core I think that there was a fantasy element mixed in kept me interested the whole way Also the author cites characters like Buffy Summers and Veronica Mars for the inspiration of her main character so it was a match made in heaven for me The main character Amber is a matchmaker she looks into your eyes and can see your soulmate She is basically at the bottom of the barrel in terms of magical gifts but seems mostly happy with her power Amber is a very sassy optimistic but pessimistic totally possible I do it freuently young woman and she works at a magic shop run by her mother who is a full blown witch I loved the environment the story took place in yes some were normal locations but then you had the magic shop with the coven getting together there not to mention a shady club for those who are not uite human We get some witches vampires sirens and some other fun magical creatures that I won't ruin the surprise on The setting really helped the feel of the book for me The love interest Charlie is also a complete delight I can imagine being 17 and swept off my feet by this lonercool kid His description sounds like a trope but somehow the author manages to keep his character fresh and believable I was rooting for Amber and Charlie all through the book and even though they hit some pretty rough bumps in the road I was glad I followed along for their journey The other part I appreciated about this book was that it featured a strong female friendship which is something that is getting common in the YA category but still lacking so that was great Also Amber had a fantastic interesting single mother Her mom wasn't trying to be her daughter's friend she was a mom but a good one She made mistakes said things that she shouldn't sometimes but at the end of the day she loved her daughter and it was really great seeing their relationship slowly grow More of this in YA please Bottom line feeling like something really light but don't exactly want to go into the real world with contemporary? Try this book You stay in a fantasy setting but still get a huge dose of adorable and fun

    I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS BOOK I have only read a few magic realism novels but hey it might actually be my thing because I really enjoyed reading those books Wanting to find love does not make someone weak; it's not a character flaw Life is hard and grueling and having someone root for you and travel beside you is a gift that anyone in this world would be lucky to have I'm not saying that people can't be happy or fulfilled on their own; of course they can But being open to the possibility of love doesn't make you weak; it actually makes you strongThere's so much LOVE in this book I LOVE reading about LOVE This book is so adorable and fluffy and I want to turn it into a vanilla flavored marshmallow and eat itTHE COVER LOOK AT THE COVER IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL AMIRITE? Spoiler YESThe whole matchmaker concept is so cool Amber has the ability to find out who your soulmate is by looking into your eyes COOLEST THING EVER I have no idea why some witches think they are so much better than matchmakers because BRUH NO OFFENSE BUT MATCHMAKERS ARE WAY COOLER THAN WITCHES I adore Amber the MC because she is so sassy and aaahh I love her comebacks and how she responds to rude and mean people or people who get upset when they find out their match is not the person they like then lash out to Amber and call her a btch It's so cool that she manages a little booth in her mom's magic store and tells people who their soulmates areCharlie and Amber are so cute together 3 All through the book it's obvious they have feelings for each other and I was like JUST FREAKING CONFESS YOUR LOVE TO EACH OTHER ALREADY It is really great to see how their relationship develops those two are super awkward at first but as they spend time together they get  comfortable around each other me when I get to the part where Charlie puts his hand on top of Amber'sI REALLY DO HOPE THEY GET A HAPPY ENDINGOverall rating★★★★This is so adorable omg go read it

    Oh my this was so delightfully cuteFirst off let me say thanks to ever awesome Miss Kat for turning my head in the direction of this seriesThe characters are all so wonderfulespecially Amber who has the most amusing personality in the banter she creates I was in stitches a good chunk of this bookI adore paranormal books and I hadn't read one that was so much fun in agesAmber comes from a long line of witches though the full witchy gene seems to have alluded her She does have a super cool trait in that she can tell you who your soulmate is within seconds of meeting your gaze This becomes a complication when the boy she likes is destined to be with another Dun dun dunnnnnnThere is humour mystery lots of love matching tasty baked goods high school drama all kinds of Chicago references that just make me wanna go backand did I mention humour?So glad I got both books from the library so there is no lag time before I can start the next one

    Spent the last few weekends savoring this book A super sarcastic heroine my fav whose magical ability lets her see everyone's soulmate except her own This was a light and frothy read and just the kind of fun escapism entertainment I've been needing Plan to recommend to teens at my library looking for the same Can't wait for book 2

    I liked the voice Amber's matter of fact sarcastic joke dropping sassy and a little self depreciating style resonated with me as did the setting my parents are from ChicagoI thoroughly enjoyed Amber's snide remarks and sarcastic thoughts throughout Amber continued to surprise me with her witty reactions comments and thoughts which were not at all repetitive but flexed according to each new situationThere's a theme that I found intriguing here as well and that is the idea of fate I'm not a fan of fate or the fates predetermining people's destinies I like to think that people's independent choices determine their destinies So the whole idea that there is one true love for everyone and this love is predetermined is for me a bunch of hogwash put politely in a public forum ; I am sure that there is than one ideal mate probably uite a few and that each person can decide for himselfherself what she wants out of a relationship and lifeSo if this is a possibility then there is the possibility that Charlie and Amber could side step the fates and choose their own love connection possibly each other Charlie was able to resist the siren in school so he may be able to resist the fates and their pre selected mate as well I think Amber and Charlie have a positive dynamic and I would love to see them laugh in the fates' faces and take control of their own lives Some unanswered uestions that I hope will be answered in the next installment areview spoiler What was Lucille and Victoria's history? What was Lucille's history with Mr Hollister? Where did Cassandra disappear to? What exactly was her deal with the goblins the deal that she broke? To protect Charlie's father? What's Kim's deal? Why was Amber forced to raise her hand to show Kim around? Does Kim have some kind of power that overrides the matchmaker's power? What did Amani see in Amber's future? What was the evil in the air alluded to near the beginning? hide spoiler
