To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I didn’t realise there was a book before this one. But in saying that, I don’t think it’s necessary to read/listen to it.
I liked the story, nothing new the curse was quite an obvious and other stories I’ve read has the same type of story/curse. I do like the Whytes, for me that was a new take on this type of story and I also liked both the fmc and mmc and also their friends and family.
Worth the listen Something different from this author but still good. YA thriller/fantasy
I can tell you that the plot of this story is very minimal, and only very loosely based on Romeo and Juliet. Instead, this is more about family relations, heritage and grief. Intertwined with a magical touch that surrounds June's home, this is a beautiful exploration of two families whose history and future are connected in various ways we find out throughout the book. The atmosphere is also gorgeous. The subtle magic, the weird things happening, the simple believe of the townspeople in it all. I know want coywolves to steal my shoes as well. It all adds to the warm, fuzzy feelings I had while reading it. June is a very strong narrator. Her voice is clear and cheeky and full of love for her family, her hometown and the magic that happens in between. June and Hannah's friendship is everything. You can tell they care deeply about each other and the romance does not take away from that.
It's also been a while since I was so charmed with a story. I don't know what exactly it was but I felt I was in Five Fingers with them all.
A book about bad- blood between two families triggering multiple tragedies spanning decades. The setting is otherwordly with characters straddling this world and the other world. The writer spends time developing Juno and Saul’s romance but there is always a fated quality to it. It’s a YA romance with a twist, a page turning fast read. I am intrigued to read other books by Emily Henry.
