So let me preface this by saying that romancey books aren't normally my fancy. BUT OH MY DEAR LORD FICUS THE GREAT LEAF BUG OF LEGEND: A MAGIC DARK AND BRIGHT WAS SO BLOODY DANG GOOD. Like, the romance didn't make me gag and vom and the lead was likeable, and this was Jenny Perinovic's debut book!
|She's so adorbs. We can't wait to fangirl over her at YA Fest.|
I've had two cups of coffee and four cups of black tea, bear with me here.
So she's got one book out right now. It's great. Read it. It's got magic and likeable characters and it's so bloody dang good JUST READ IT.
I just realized I should probably write more of these blog posts after drinking mass amounts of caffeine. I just get so dang excitable, guys.
A Magic Dark and Bright
She meant to help a ghost...not unleash a curse.
Amelia Dupree hasn’t seen the Woman in White since the night her brother died.
The ghost seems to have disappeared from the woods surrounding Asylum, Pennsylvania—that is, until Charlie Blue moves into the creepy old MacAllister House next door. Amelia can’t help liking him, even though she spent her childhood thinking his grandmother was a witch. And she definitely can’t ignore the connection between his arrival and the Woman in White’s return.
Then Amelia learns that the Woman in White is a prisoner, trapped between the worlds of the living and the dead. Devastated by the idea that her brother could be suffering a similar fate, Amelia decides to do whatever it takes to help the Woman in White find peace--and Charlie agrees to help her.
But when Amelia’s classmates start to drown in the Susquehanna River, one right after another, rumors swirl as people begin to connect the timing of Charlie’s arrival with the unexplained deaths. As Charlie and Amelia uncover the dark history of Asylum, they realize they may have unleashed an unspeakable evil. One they have to stop before everything they love is destroyed.
Show Jenny just how amazing she is by following her in all usual internet places: her website, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YA Fest... (Well, don't literally *follow* her there, because then it's kinda considered stalking. But you get my meaning.)
