Review: Bewitching Season
Wow, what a fun book! Bewitching Season had everything I was looking for when I started reading reading it; magic, witty conversations, and intriguing characters! I hope to read more by Marissa Doyle in the near future.
Well, now that I am thinking about it, this review is not going to be very long. Really, this book was incredibly well done. There is nothing worth criticizing. I mean nothing in this book was mind boggling or anything, but nothing was flat out bad. I enjoyed every little aspect of The Bewitching Season. Especially how they added Princess Victoria in. *smiles*
The characters were charming. Mostly in a cutesy way, especially Persy's younger brother. He had me laughing through out the entire book. Persy and Pen were awesome main characters too. Persys personality was not extremely original, but still lightly unique and had me rooting for her the entire time! Pen also was a great heroine. I think, in fact, I liked her as much as I liked Persy. Which is rare. In most books I prefer one sister over the other.
Ally, the governess, was also a character I liked reading about. We got several scenes from her point of view, all of which were some of my favorites. Ally is young, chipper, and smart. I felt she played a part bigger than just the missing nanny. Also, Ally's family is a constant part in Bewitching Season. I think readers will enjoy reading about all the amazingly charming characters.
The plot and story were just plain fun. Magic, misunderstandings, and disguises filled the story with light drama. This is definitely a book to smile through! Also, the London setting is very vivid.
All in all, Bewitching Season is not to be missed. I am so glad I picked it up when I did!
