Release Date: March 20, 2023
View My Review Here
Lonely girl Alex has always kept the world at bay with her headphones, a boatload of anxiety and the joking thought that her high school was cursed. When her little sister begins spouting ominous warnings and she starts dreaming of a stranger with her own face, Alex realizes her private joke may not be a joke after all.
As the fairytale her grandma used to tell gets progressively more real, the past Alex didn’t know she had is catching up with her. Enemies she didn’t know to fear are making their moves. Friends she didn’t know she’d made are coming to meet her. Magic she didn’t know was real is disrupting her normal. But despite her new problems, it’s a normal she can’t bring herself to want back.
My High School is Cursed is a YA urban fantasy with plenty of humor, magic and a little romance on the side.
First Sentence: The smell hit me first. It wasn’t an incredibly strong smell, Nor was it a bad smell. But it felt like breathing in a summer breeze. It was fresh and relaxing, warm and comforting, yet cool and otherworldly.
Page 56: “Unfortunately, I Can’t cast a protection spell on myself. It requires some sort of bond between the caster and the recipient. The stronger the bond the better. Emotion is a powerful magical booster. That’s why the warlock is so wary of true love.”
Todays Question Is: Do you enjoy reading romance novels? If so, which romance trope is your favorite?
A: I really don’t read romance that often, but when I do I like the young adult genre. “Bullies to romance” or high school drama. Lol, I know, it sounds like an ole lady trying to go back in time, hmm… 🤣
