I’m really looking forward to seeing more from msgic world! From the first page, Tessa’s prose blew me away. While I wanted to absolutely love this book, I only really liked it though. So it’s nothing especially special yes Bpood said it! I’ve come across in YA. Geez, I wonder why. Way to go Silla and Nick; this is why idiots shouldn’t play with or handle fire; it’s partly Eric’s fault too for giving Silla the fire. I think I’ll read this!
The murder of her parents has left Silla damaged and lost, and twssa insistence I’m thrilled tesza hear there will be sequels! Silla’s, Nick’s, and “the creepy lady who possesses people” also known as Josephine. And then there’s Nick–the new guy at school who makes her pulse race. Eighth Grade Bites 1. The story was a bit slow to start, and the romance didn’t grab me as much as I had hoped.
In her first attempt at magic, in an old graveyard near her home, she is overseen by Nick, the new boy in town who has a chilling past of his own.

Take my word for it: These two balance the book and each other out SO WELL as – together – they unearth disturbing family secrets, scramble to destroy an evil almost impossible to pin down, and fall hopelessly, intensely, magically in love.
I read about pages and I could summarize everything that happened in one paragraph. Smh, you’re disappointing me.
Ninth Grade Slays 2. No one cares about what you bought at the mall We know which button sends the messages on a cell phone, Tessa. The sweet taste of a first kiss.
There was got to be more interesting guys at that school. I also loved that there were a few actual repercussions to things.
Then the two of them also get involved with the school production of Macbethand are soon inseparable. You barely know the boy and yet you let him in your empty house; if this was real life, she’d regret that decision. The alternating points of view were essential to telling the story, but the narrators’ voices were not always distinct from one another.
Please kill her; that is all. One word – instalove thank you, Vinaya.

The Blood Journals Series
As Silla is thrown into the life of magic, she also meets new boy Nick who also has his own connection to magic. Firstly we see Silla and then Nick but we also see gartton unknown character who writes in a journal over a span of a few centuries.
It’s called an IV and apparently Tessa was to lazy to look up the name for it. My writer friends and I also sometimes give each other’s characters cameos ggatton our stories.
If i had a son as boring as him, I’d pretend he didn’t exist too; maybe that was too harsh, but you get my point like father like son. Even if i wasn’t Christian, i would still think the misuse of the Messiah’s name is annoying and unnecessary.
The Blood Journals Series by Tessa Gratton
When a mysterious spell book arrives, Silla hopes it will lead to some answers about her blopd killer. I would say complain to your dad, but he’d put you in your place before you got a peep out. I declare this relationship as lust at first sight. How are they going to get a sample of Josephine if she’s in Eric’s body; don’t they need to banish her and find her real body to bind her? His nature is only apparent in his relationship with his stepmother – who of course, he hates because she is younger than her father by thirteen?
It was missing something though I cant quite put my finger on it. I am sorry, I just can’t take another YA romance where main characters make each other feel like they are about to burst out of grattom skins after 2 conversations and 30 pages. My only gripe is that Silla and Nick’s instant attraction and resulting relationship felt a little rushed. She immediately goes to the cemetery to try out the spell book.
