    I inhaled this book, ignoring chores and work. Stories about psychics that are written in first person sardonic are almost always going to draw me in, especially if the main character is a mess trying to be a better person, and so it is with 24-year-old Teddy Cannon, who we begin wi...

    Welcome to the troposphere. Twenty-something Las Vegan (nothing to do with her diet) Theodora Delaney Cannon (Teddy) is in a bit of a bind. Seems she owes a Russian mobster two fifty large and he means to collect, even if it means going after her parents. Teddy is trying to do wha...

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy: When I first started SCHOOL FOR PSYCHICS, I wanted to compare it to Lev Grossman?s THE MAGICIANS, but I?ve changed my mind. They both feature new adults who are sent back to school to learn to master their talents, but the characters ...

    I received a free digital copy of this book for free from the publisher via NetGalley. I also have a video review of this book, which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GtTh... This is an adult novel (supposedly, but back to that later), in which a woman in her e...

    We follow a snarky millennial protagonist with a gambling problem as she learns to use her psychic abilities (it's why she's so good at poker) at a secret government school in San Francisco. The protagonist has a lot of baggage to work through, but she does good job of growing as a per...

    This was my airport bookstore buy (seriously, that's one of my favorite parts of vacation). I had been seeing this book around, was so intrigued by the premise and cover, and was excited to dive in as soon as I saw it on the shelf! Unfortunately, reading this book felt like a chore. By...

    2.5 stars The book begins as Teddy Cannon is gambling in Vegas. She is in disguise as she has been banned from most casinos. She doesn't count cards or cheat, but she does have an ability to "read" people. She knows what they are going to do and can make her moves accordingly. She o...

    I am fascinated by any book with "powers" featured in the plotline. Growing up, I loved the idea of harnessing a secret power just like Samantha from Bewitched! School for Psychics is about an elite, most secretive school on Angel Island helping psychics learn their respective gifts. T...

    *3.5 stars rounded up. I don't have to be psychic to hear you groaning about yet another book set in a school for extraordinarily talented young people. Yes, it is an overused plot device...and the reason is because it works so well. (As evidence, the fabulously successful Harry Pot...

    I first learned of this book last year and requested it through NetGalley a couple weeks ago when I saw it pop up on someone?s book haul list. I liked the title, hated the cover, and thought the synopsis was interesting. I decided to give it a try. The story quickly appealed to me...

    When the chips are down and the going gets tough, what would you do? Teddy decided to go to school! It isn?t just any school, it is a school for psychics and for some reason, the dean thinks she has special abilities and has promised that all of her troubles will go away if she enrol...

    2.5 stars. Hey, it's another school for magically-gifted youngsters! (or young adults anyway, though they act more like teenagers.) Review first posted on Fantasy Literature: Theodora ?Teddy? Cannon is hiding her short black hair and slight build under a long blonde wig,...

    2.5 stars In many ways, this story is much like the gazillion YA books in which teens discover they have some super-special abilities and are recruited to attend a secret school. Cue in misfits vs. popular/mean kids, a bit of potential romance, some secret goings-on, etc. The School...

    I am conflicted about this one. It really grabbed my interest when I glanced at the blurb, which was surprising because I don't read a lot of books like it. It's a fantasy about people with special abilities, so I thought it could go one of two ways: it could be about kids or teenagers...

    This was tagged as ?Harry Potter with millennials? which is sort of accurate. But not really. Teddy is our main character, a twenty year old who dropped out of college and is living with her parents. I guess that?s where the millennial comes from? She is excellent at gamb...

    Filled to the brim with clichs, shrugs characters, and The Magicians's adult Harry Potter vibes with a hint of Quantico. Seeing as I only made it through the first two or three episodes of the former show, this book was unfortunately not the one for me. I wish it was. I had no att...

    Theodora "Teddy'' Cannon is an intelligent, strong and spirited woman, but sometimes her personality just leads her down the wrong path. But really, if you can read people....really read people....see when they are lying, bluffing, etc....why not use that talent to win at gambling? Ted...
