Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz Review

Name: Spellbound
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: June 28th, 2011
324 pages

What's a girl to do when meeting The One means she's cursed to die a horrible death?

Life hasn't been easy on sixteen-year-old Emma Connor, so a new start in New York may be just the change she needs. But the posh Upper East Side prep school she has to attend? Not so much. Friendly faces are few and far between, except for one that she's irresistibly drawn to—Brendan Salinger, the guy with the rock-star good looks and the richest kid in school, who might just be her very own white knight.

But even when Brendan inexplicably turns cold, Emma can't stop staring. Ever since she laid eyes on him, strange things have been happening. Streetlamps go out wherever she walks, and Emma's been having the oddest dreams: visions of herself in past lives—visions that warn her to stay away from Brendan. Or else.

My Review:
Overall, I really enjoyed this book! At times, the plot seemed to be moving a little bit too quick for me but it still worked!

One of the best parts about this book was the plot! It was totally different then other books about magic that I have read and I LOVED that part about this book. It made it very unique. However, some parts of the plot were very predictable which made me sad because I like when books keep me on my toes!

I also enjoyed the relationship between Emma and Brendan. Of course, it was a lot like your typical romance in a book, but it was still fun to read!

So, if your looking for a magical read with romance look no further!

My Rating: Four out of Five Stars
