    The amount of times I like a strange book, only to come to Goodreads and learn that everyone else finds it slow... I could buy a goddamn pony if you gave me a dollar for each time. ? Anyway, I'll be reviewing this soon. REVIEW: I cannot tell you how many times I've read an...

    *review contains thoughts about self-harm* I hemmed and hawed over what rating to give this book. First of all, the book is gorgeous and I want to know who in their right mind would spend that much money to make it. A casebound, soft-touch, young adult book WITH PAINTED EDGES?? Anyw...

    Ohhhh, this is so pretty in person! And the pages are edged in red! RTC Gorgeous presentation and some gorgeous wording. Overall not what I expected, and it had elements that had been done before, but other elements still that were definitely intriguing. In the end, it feels a...

    After absolutely adoring The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender, I was ready to fall in love with anything Leslye Walton wrote. That is to say, I couldn't request The Price Guide to the Occult fast enough when I realized who the author was. Yet, though the introduction ...

    Okay guys, first I have to admit something. I?m kind of prejudiced. This is a YA novel, and I expected what I?d read in almost every other YA so far: tropes, cliches, that feeling you?re reading a book well below your age group (if you?re 27 like me). It surprised me to find al...

    Leslye Waltons?s The Price Guide to the Occult is a captivating fantasy that pits its heroine against her own mother in a novel full of magic and pain. Nor is part of a long line of Blackburn women whose magical abilities have both beguiled folk on Anathema Island and caused them to ...

    2-1/2 stars, rounded down Trigger Warning: Self-harm Also, this review is slightly spoilery, but trust me, you probably won't remember anything I say here because this review is as messy as this book This book started out so promisingly. Nor Blackburn is a witch in a family of wit...

    ?Was she strong enough to carry all these Burdens on her own? Or would they swallow her whole?? I knew this book was the one I'd been looking for when I flipped to the last page of the prologue and saw a glimpse of a name I thought to be "Noa," which was exactly what I was s...

    Leslye Walton?s debut novel, The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender, is one of my favourite books of all time ? its wonderfully magical weirdness took me completely by surprise when I read it a couple of years ago. This, however, was sadly entirely average and read like...

    3.5 stars. Had some very beautiful writing, unique atmosphere, and I loved where it took place (the Pacific Northwest). It had a lot of things I enjoyed, but some of the plot just didn't work for me. Still think a lot of people will like it though! Also, trigger warning for self harm. ...

    ?Time might heal all wounds, but what about the scars those wounds left behind?? for me this book had so much potential and it just fell a bit short in my opinion, it was quite boring for at least 150 pages and then everything was jammed into the last half and it was a very c...

    This gave me all of the eerie vibes, all of the exquisite writing, all of the angsty character, and all of the atmospheric setting that I was anticipating and yet, somehow, I still wanted more. For such a short book, and with such a sinister premise, this delivered little in the way...

    If you?re a romantic person and love slow-paced paranormal stories, you need to read this book. I?m not, but I have to say that this book surprised me in many ways, despite being flawed and not exactly my thing. Also, it?s about witches, and that aspect was great. I haven?t...

    I?d like to start this review with a quote from one of my favourite shows, Malcom in the Middle. The thing is, I haven?t read The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender yet. A book that I'm sure is very good. And so, I went into The Price Guide to the Occult with low ...

    It took me longer than I expected to finish this book but I had a great time reading it. I can't explain why but I really enjoyed this book and the story seemed like a short story or a myth but it was written well. The history of witches is very helpfully given in the prologue which se...
