Mini Review: Cauldron Bubble

Cauldron Bubble Cauldron Bubble by Wendy Knight
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Description:
“You’ve just always been the powerful one. I’m the smart aleck.”  
“We’re the same. I’m night, you’re day. You have to have both to have life.”  
“You can hide in the shadows.”  
“And you can shine like the sun. This prophesy is about both of us.”  

Destiny doesn't think she's anything special. The daughter of an outcast witch. Her twin, Fate, is her best friend, so that's awesome. They're experts in love potions and selling them to crazy high school kids. 
So they can buy more shoes. 
But that all changes when their school is attacked by warlocks—warlocks who want her power for their own. The attack launches her onto the path the stars have chosen for Destiny, Fate, and their long-lost father. 
Oh, and Quin. 
Quin, who's the son of a witch, only tolerating Destiny's presence because she can save his mother. Except along the way, that all changes, and he realizes Destiny is everything he never knew he wanted. The only problem is she thinks if love can be made from a potion, it can't be a real thing. 
If they survive this, he's going to prove her wrong. 

Review:
This made a great start to a new young adult paranormal romance trilogy. I enjoyed getting to know the sisters. Fate and Destiny made great family and their mom too. I'm dying to know more about Fate and her boyfriend Damien. Book 2 is focused on them I believe.
Destiny and Quin were fun characters. I love the whole hate/chemistry they had going on. Oh and the class Chemistry as well. Fun stuff. Prophecies are always interesting and the villain is not surprising but good at being a villain for sure. Overall, Cauldron Bubble gets four glittery stars!

Mini Review: To the Stars

To the Stars To the Stars by Molly McAdams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Description:
In the second book in New York Times  and USA Today  bestselling author Molly McAdams’ Thatch series, Knox Alexander must convince his long-time love Harlow Evans that they’re meant to be together.

He promised to wait for her.
She told him he was wasting his time.
Not waiting for him ended up being the biggest mistake of her life.

When they were younger, Knox Alexander swore to Harlow Evans that he would wait for her to turn eighteen so they could be together. But that was three and a half years away, and Harlow couldn’t ask him to give up all the fun and thrills of going away to college for her. As the years passed, Knox remained a constant in her life—whether she liked it or not—but when her eighteenth birthday came around, Harlow’s heart belonged to someone else.

Every day for the last four years, Harlow has been haunted by that fateful choice. And though he may appear unaffected by what happened in their past, Knox has always tried to fill the void Harlow left. But when he comes stumbling back into her life and refuses to leave, will Harlow finally let him into her heart…?

Review:
Another Molly McAdams classic! I'm loving the Thatch series! Knox and Harlow=AWESOMENESS!
If you've never read anything by this author, you NEED to! She is the Nicholas Sparks of the college and twenties generations. BUT, bring the tissues, because you are in for one hell of the roller coaster ride!
A master at contemporary romance, this book met all of my expectations and more. Don't want to spoil all the twists, give this five star highly recommended book a read!
