“Slipping my clothes off, I took a minute to check myself out in the mirror. [...] Damn. I may not be Jessica Alba, but I could probably have been her body double.”
You got to love a heroine like Hadley Bishop, at least according to the author’s agent, who gushes that the main character of Life's a Witch “is impossible not to like”. Well, I seem to possess special abilities, for not liking Hadley turned out to be very, very easy. In fact, the heroine’s personality is one of things I disliked mos
I first heard about Life's a Witch through an article in Publisher's Weekly. My first thought upon reading the article was "oh great, here we go again, another self-published author." I was, however, intrigued. After all, Brittany had achieved 19 Million reads of the book on Wattpad, a site I check into every few weeks, and she seemed like a very sweet lady in her interview. I decided to purchase the book and check it out. I placed it on my shelf for a rainy day and forgot about it. Little did I ...more
I did not know that this was not the first book of the series. I started it and ended it feeling like I was not missing a thing.

I went back and forth between giving it 5 stars vs 4 stars. I ended up with 4, primarily for reasons I can's list without giving away any spoilers. Let's just leave it at the fact I found Hadley to have done/believed some pretty stupid things for someone who was pulling a 4.0 gpa. I just thought she would have been smarter than that, or at the least questioned certain t
Just finished LAW and LOVED it! Hadley is an awesome main character because she has a lot of depth that isn't apparent right away. I loved that she was conflicted about what she should do/the heavy responsibility of leading the coven right after she suffers a significant loss, and her not fully understanding that she really is the strongest leader of all of the twitches. I'm drawn to character development, so that really stuck with me, and how she found her confidence in the witch world. It comp ...more
I could not contain my excitement when I saw this book and its cover on Goodreads! I absolutely adored the first book in this series, What the Spell?, and I could not wait to get my hands on a copy of this! Needless to say I was not disappointed when I opened this book. In this book we see charmed witch and popular high school student, Hadley Bishop. Yep, you guessed it! She is a direct descendant from the first witch that was murdered in the Salem Witch Trials, Bridget Bishop. Hadley leads a pr ...more

Cosas de brujas es el primer libro de la saga de Brittany Geragotelis. Con una narración sencilla y sin muchas pretensiones, descubriremos la historia de una bruja adolescente moderna, que le gusta ir de compras y hacer su voluntad.
Cuando descubrí la portada de esta novela en su lanzamiento en España quedé totalmente cautivada por la pinta tan moderna de la protagonista... Especialmente por esos tacones. Así empecé a imaginarme la historia con un parecido a La guerra de las brujas. Si
No reseñé este libro en mi blog porque no valía la pena, sin embargo, la protagonista inauguró una nueva sección: PERSONAJES QUE MERECEN UN FLECHAZO EN LA FRENTE, porque nadie se merecía ese privilegio más que ella.

Agarren Harry Potter y la Orden del Fénix, quítenle todo (TODO) lo bueno, yankeerizenlo, frivolizenlo, agreguen una protagonista la mar de estúpida, contradicciones, obviedades y ahí tienen Cosas de brujas.

Such a fun read! Really talented author!
Obviously written for the "Young Adult" reader. But it was an engaging story, and I was unable to put it down without finishing it. I'm going to recommend it to my 16 year old granddaughter.
Decent premise but Hadley is one of the most annoying and stuck up heroines I've come across...and I've read the Undead series so that's saying something.
I thought this book was pretty good but there was a certain part that spiraled my feelings towards the book.

This review is going to be hard to express without giving away spoilers..I enjoyed the beginning of the book and thought it was good..Hadley being the main character comes from a long line of witches that dates back into The Salem Witch Trials. I thought that was pretty cool.It had a turn towards the end of the book that had me scratching my head and wondering WTF.. I had many mixed feelin

Creo que este fue el peor libro que leí en el 2013. La trama no tiene una buena base, la protagonista es una adolescente egoísta, egocéntrica e insufrible con aires de diva, a la que todos idolatran (aunque no tanto como ella misma). Encima hay amor instantáneo, el romance tiene muy poco sentido, a la media hora de conocerse ella ya se lo lleva a vivir con su aquelarre que esta en peligro de muerte y sufriendo ataques constantes, osea le revela su paradero a un completo desconocido!

Recommended if you like YA magical stories with leading female characters and a bit of angst and magic. I was disappointed with volume 1 but surprised when this this follow up book lived up to its hype. Good job. The author removed enough of the stupid class envy that ruined Brooklyn and kept enough to make Hadley a good character. It was a bit confusing when Asher from the previous book was the love interest of this lead character again. But it was good to see he gets a better girl friend this ...more

¡AL FIN TERMINÉ EL LIBRO! Para los que me siguen en goodreads (y los que no, vayan a seguirme YA MISMO (?)) saben que tardé muchisimo en leer este libro de solo 280 páginas. Suelo amar los libros de Roca, pero ya con La Selección, La Elite, y ahora este, me estoy decepcionando un poquitin.

Es el libro con puntuación más baja, y hasta le daría menos, pero creo que ya el trabajo de publicarlo o algo se merece una estrella. La trama es interesante, no voy a negarlo, dos c

I've tried my best not to make this a ranty review, but I'm so frustrated with this book that I couldn't help but write some of it down. I hope you won't mind.

The blurb for this one sounded great. Add that to 15 million readers on Wattpad and I was expecting to get a good story. Unfortunately, I was annoyed with the main character from the very first page. I have never, ever read about a main character as stuck up and full of herself as Hadley Bishop.

She is the most popular gi

I just can't. I was willing to give a second chance to Geragotelis because I thought my problems might be with the MC from the previous book, this book is just as bad. Don't freaking bother. To see full review click on one of the following links:

La recensione sul blog

Attirata dalla trama e dalle premesse, mi sono illusa di avere tra le mani un bel romanzo urban fantasy YA, ed invece non l'ho trovato nulla di particolare.
Avete presente quando alla fine di un libro, ripensando alla storia, sapete già che vi mancheranno i personaggi di cui avete appena letto? Ecco, assolutamente non è questo il caso, perchè non mi è rimasto proprio nulla dalla lettura di questo libero!
La protagonista è Hadley, una

Attratta dalla trama mi dispiace essermi inceppata in una delusione tale.
Non capivo la scelta editoriale di stampare prima il secondo volume della serie, per poi scoprire che il primo è considerato più un prequel/spin off. Okay, ma continuo a non capire.
Ad essere sincera perfino questo volume mi è parso molto introduttivo o con pezzi mancanti.

La protagonista è completamente diversa rispetto al solito, vanitosa e completamente sicura di sé, continuamente in preoccupazione riguardo il suo aspetto
Life’s a Witch by Brittany Geragotelis was an awesome audio to listen to. It’s a witchy/paranormal story and I do have such a fondness for those so for me I really enjoyed this book. It’s narrated by Joy Osmanski and she is fast becoming a favorite narrator of mine. I have listened to one other book narrated by her and she makes an audio even more enjoyable with the emotions she puts into her reading of the story. For me she brings the story alive in my mind and she keeps perfect pace and tone t ...more
Life’s a Witch is a bit better than What the Spell. I would suggest reading LAW before WTS as I found out that WTS is actually the prequel (not to be confused with the 1st book of the series) ruins Asher in LAW for me anyways. Asher seems like 2 completely different people in each of the novels and it confused me. LAW has more paranormal aspects in it over WTS which I liked. I did enjoy it more but it took about 150 pages for me to get really into it. The author really likes the popular girls I ...more

Cuando leí el argumento de Cosas de brujas tuve un buen presentimiento y, como no había leído ninguna reseña, ni positiva ni negativa, partía sin prejuicios ni ideas preestablecidas. Una vez leído me ha dado la sensación de ser una mezcla de Embrujadas (salvando las distancias, por supuesto) con una versión odiosa de Gossip Girl.

La idea del mundo mágico que presenta la autora me ha gustado bastante. Es cierto que es senc

Desde que vi que se iba a publicar “Cosas de Brujas” no dudé un instante en que quería leerlo. Me gustan las historias de brujas, así que estaba segura de que me iba a gustar y, ahora que ya lo he leído puedo decir que sí, que me ha gustado pero que me ha faltado algo

Antes de nada, os cuento un poco la historia. Hadley es una adolescente que proviene de una familia de brujas muy poderosas. Su tataratatarabuela fue la primera bruja en morir en la hoguera en Salem a manos del malvado Samuel Parri
Este es el claro ejemple de "No jusguez a un libro por la portada". Okey la portada es muy bonita y llama muchisimo la atención... Pero lo que esta adentro es un completo desastre.
La protagonista la peor protagonista que he leído: creida, egoista, egocentrica, ni una gota de humilda, yo yo y yo. Se cree el sol que gira en el universo, la mejor de todas, la más poderosa. ¿Esto se modifica en un final? NO. El mensaje que nos deja la autora es que mientras te vistas bien, seas la más querida del c

If I could rate this as a simple DNF I would, but I had to give it the minimum 1 star on here.

I don't like not finishing a book, but I really couldn't stand the main character in this book and I couldn't force myself to read any more of it.

The main character is really annoying. She's full of herself, self-centered and that is not how teens should be acting these days! Not a good role-model in the book world at all. She even called the school her own, and how she had to "keep it running".

Life's a Witch

First if all I want to say that I'm super proud of the author for getting this book published, two years ago she was a dreamer who posted her story up on Wattpad and hoped that people would like it. Thanks to all of the people who read the book on Wattpad this woman got her book published. So congrats xx

Life's a Witch was a good read but I didn't find that it was worth the money I payed for it, I bought it on my kindle for $10 and I normally don't like spending my online money.

3.5 stars.

*****Review contains spoilers*****

Once again i've done the typical Jenny thing and read a book series out of sync. I will try and check out book 1 if I can find it in the library; but it didn't feel like I was missing anything by just reading book 2.

Hadley is Miss Popular at school, she's head cheerleader and her close friends worship the ground she walks on. Another thing about Hadley is she is also a witch.

Nunca me había encontrado con un personaje tan superficial, aparte estúpido como Hadley Bishop, todo el libro me la pase maldiciendome a mi misma por haber gastado dinero en este libro, Hadley es una chica super popular en la escuela y es "la reina abeja" pero además es una bruja(superficial, narcisista) hay personajes que empiezan siendo odiosos pero conforme avanza le historia van evolucionando y volviéndose mejores, este no es el caso de Hadley, ella es odiosa de principio a fin, cuando neces ...more
This book is recommended for ages 12-18 in my opinion. This is a pretty fast paced magical strong female lead book. I was unable to put this book down sadly hoping it would get better the story line was ok just the character development was not as great as I was hoping for.

I was unsure if I shoud give it 2 or 3 stars & finally settled on 3.

My full honest review with -SPOILERS- is next if you haven't read the book please stop reading.

After struggling to force myself through the last thirty pages, I can safely say that my problem with "What the Spell?" wasn't just with the previous heroine Brooklyn, it's with Geragotelis' writing. How can I know for sure? Because I hated Hadley even more, and I can say with confidence that even if Hadley hadn't been an insufferable mary-sue, I still would've hated this book.

The main problem with this book is the writing, starting with the basic elements of story development. Sure, the bare bo
