Hey guys! I know you’ve been looking out for my review of Tankborn, it’s coming! However, I felt like I needed to review The Juliet Spell because I’ve just had it there for what feels like forever and I feel like it deserves more than that. So here goes.

The Juliet SpellI wanted the role of Juliet more than anything. I studied hard. I gave a great reading for it—even with Bobby checking me out the whole time. I deserved the part.

I didn’t get it. So I decided to level the playing field, though I actually might have leveled the whole play. You see, since there aren’t any Success in Getting to Be Juliet in Your High School Play spells, I thought I’d cast the next best—a Fame spell. Good idea, right?

Yeah. Instead of bringing me a little fame, it brought me someone a little famous. Shakespeare. Well, Edmund Shakespeare. William’s younger brother.

Good thing he’s sweet and enthusiastic about helping me with the play…and—ahem—maybe a little bit hot. But he’s from the past. Way past. Cars amaze him—cars! And cell phones? Ugh.

Still, there’s something about him that’s making my eyes go star-crossed….

What I have to say right off the bat is that I was unable to finish this book. While I found it extremely easy to read, once I put it down, I couldn’t find any motivation to pick it back up. The underlying story was interesting, I did find myself wondering what would happen in the end, but unfortunately this was not enough. I think my main problem was that I just couldn’t get emotionally invested in the characters, they should fell too flat for me. Honestly, it just wasn’t my cup of tea.

What books have you just never finished?

K, the Popinjay.
