{Review} Something Witchy by AJ Myers

Something Witchy by AJ Myers   Paperback, 336 pages Published September 3rd 2013 by A Little Witch Age Group: YA Series: Mystics & Mayhem #1 Source: ecopy from Author Summary: My name is Ember Blaylock.  Welcome to the World of Weird—better known as my life. It wasn’t always like this.  I was once a normal high school senior, just filling out college apps and trying to stay sane long enough to get out of Moonlight, Missouri.  Preferably before I ended up in a straight-jacket out of sheer boredom. At first, my only problems were my increasingly unwanted ability to see the dead and my desperation to remove the stalker known as my ex-boyfriend from my life.  Somewhere along the line I must have pissed off the Bad Karma Fairy.  Maybe I stepped on the wrong toadstool or peed in Loki’s personal swimming pool—I really don’t know.  All I do know is I’m about to have the worst week of my life.  Maybe the worst week of any teenager’s life.  Ever. All… Read more »
