    This book is a return to my favorite Holmberg books. I adored The Paper Magician and hoped the return to that world would live up to my expectations. It did! I liked that it carried on in the world with a new character, Alvie. (But we get a cameo!) Alvie?s a great character and th...

    3.5 This book didn't grab me quite as quickly as the first book in the series, and it took me a little while to warm to the characters. I liked Alvie well enough, and her charming awkwardness, but for awhile the story seemed to be just about that and while she was quirky and all, I ...

    I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I adored the world created in The Paper Magician Trilogy and am super excited to be able to return to it. Alvie is adorable and believable as the heroine and new plastic magician apprentice and her brain and smart...

    3.5 Stars While I've read other works by Charlie Holmberg, I've somehow managed to miss reading The Paper Magician trilogy, so this book was an introduction into Holmberg's charming magical world, set largely in an alternate Edwardian era England, around 1906. Alvie Brechenmacher is...

    A few months back I got approved for an ARC of The Plastic Magician and in truly dodgy fashion, here I am only just having read it?now. Who?s an organised book blogger? *crickets* Clearly not me. The Plastic Magician is a spin-off standalone of Charlie N. Holmberg?s The Paper ...

    Read for the Popsugar Reading Challenge 2018: a book published in 2018. Disclaimer: I love The Paper Magician series. I adore Emery Thane with all my heart. But this book just didn't really cut it. I knew it wasn't about the characters I got used to, so I don't think that was the is...

    I received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The Plastic Magician is a spinoff of The Paper Magician Trilogy. I really enjoyed reading Alvie's story and the discoveries being made, and learning new things about the different forms of magic. I loved see...

    The Paper Magician trilogy holds a very special place in my heart - and I'm only too pleased to add this next book into their illustrious company! Alvie is a complete departure from Ceony (who has a very satisfying cameo!) - she's logical, mathematical, quite the overthinker and ver...

    I had really enjoyed the Paper Magician series, so I was pretty excited to see there was a spin off. I liked Alvie well enough. She?s super smart and passionate and I enjoyed reading her dedication to her magic. Ethel and Bennet were fantastic and supportive secondary characters ...

    I love Alvie. She's weird (I'm weird too) perhaps that is why I loved her so much. I can't express how much I truly love this series. ...

    Thanks to Netgalley and 47North for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review! Holmberg's Paper Magician series did something really cool: it introduced a very unique and very fun magic system. This standalone follow-up/spin-off book follows the adventures of Ceony i...

    I received this book through Netgalley and am providing my honest review. I haven't read the Paper Magician trilogy before reading this book, but I feel like the book was separate enough from the trilogy that I could easily read it and understand the world. The first 10% or so of the b...

    I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. This review does contain marked spoiler. However, the book has not been released yet, so read at your own risk. I really enjoyed...

    I have to admit, I enjoyed this installment the most out of all the books in the series thus far. Alvie was such a great character and I found her so much easier to connect and relate to than the character of Ceony in the other books. Ceony seemed to mostly annoy and frustrate me...

    The best in the series! I wrote a long review but goodreads crashed on me so I'm just gonna keep it simple (thanks goodreads). World: The world is charming and effortless. There is no info dumping and Alvie is a good point of view to introduce readers to the world. The magic syst...

    A pleasant return, but felt lacking I think this series is meant for young adults, but (as an adult) I thoroughly enjoyed the first trilogy, and this was a pleasant return to the works of material magicians. I found this one lacking, though, with my only tangible observation being t...

    THANKS TO THE PUBLISHER AND NETGALLEY FOR PROVIDING ME WITH A COPY FOR REVIEW, THIS DID NOT AFFECT MY OPINION OF THE BOOK IN ANY WAY. The Plastic Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg is the latest story set in the world she created with The Paper Magician. If you?re familiar at all wit...

    I really enjoyed this book! It's a light, fun read that will delight any fan of The Paper Magician series. It had my heart thumping in anxiety several times and made me laugh aloud more than once. I even teared up at the end over an unemotional scene because the magic system Holmberg c...

    These stories are delightful. I was cheered to return to the world of The Paper Magician in this spin off that follows a Plastic Magician on her adventures in magic and love. The bad guys conspiracy was weak but I?m hopeful that this will become a series with stronger plot. It...

    6 October 2017. There are 12 reviews for a book that won't be published for 6 months, according to the blurb. What's wrong with this picture? PS I enjoyed the first 3 books in the series, so it may turn out to deserve the stars. ...

    As a huge fan of the first three books (or, as I found out later, the trilogy), I was really looking forward to this book. I cannot say I am disappointed but I am far from satisfied with the story. I think this book only works if it is the beginning of a new series. The first book too...

    Note: While this is listed as part of The Paper Magician Series, this novel can stand on its own. While the world-building isn't as extensive in this novel, there is still enough information that one could start with this book not having read the full Paper Magician series. Characters ...

    Oh dear...this was somewhat disappointng. It lacked the sparkle, the flirtatious fun and the thrill that made up The Paper Magician series. Alvie and Bennet weren?t a patch on Ceony and Emery. Not sure whether I will continue with this series now. RTC ...

    *ARC in exchange for an honest review* Before I start this review I want to make some things clear: This is a spin-off of The Paper Magician trilogy. So, you better read those books first if you want the full package. For me, this book was much better than the other three bo...
