Like the rest of the books in this series, it made me fall in love with the characters all over again. My only MAJOR complaint about it is that it seemed too rushed and she skipped so much! I can't believe she did that! ESPECIALLY after when Cat & Bones meet with Marie (the voodoo queen) and "something" happens. I really don't want to make this a spoiler review. Three times she did that though (that I remember). There were a few grammar mistakes as well.
Why OH WHY Jeaniene would you do that?!?!?!?!!!????? I need to know why she was so rushed with this book!!! Or maybe it was that it's been a while since the last book came out so when this one was finally out I was having high expectations that it would be long. the book seemed kind of short to me. Again tho, time would pass that the author skipped. I hated that.
On the good side though, of course I laughed when I read this. Along with Cat & Bones, Vlad had me cracking up. I have to admit, Cat reminds me so much of myself. ahhaha This one scene had me laughing so hard I'm sure everyone thought I was crazy: "Winston Gallagher!" I said, recognizing the first ghost I'de met. Then my eyes narrowed & I covered my hand in front of my crotch as I saw Winstons gaze fasten there next. "Don't even think about poltergeisting my panties again". "This is the sod? Come here you scurvy little--" "Bones don't!" I interrupted. He stopped, giving a last glare to him while mouthing YOU. ME. EXORCIST. before returning to my side." LOL
One scene had me crying like a baby. (dammit *mumbles*) Some old characters come back into the book that I was surprised at. Somethings may be a little predictable but it was well worth still reading. The ending was such a tease to me! I'm so sad that I have to wait til Fall for the next one to come out. =( Yes, I own this book and hell no I am not swapping it on here for another!!!!(less)

It's about a witch who runs into her on again, off again for the past 300 years vampire lover looking for her help with a vampire serial murder case. She has a really witty && sarcastic sense of humor. It can be quiet funny. haha My favorite characters in the books were her bunny slippers Fluff n Puff. For a pair of slippers they get into a lot of trouble && have major anger management issues. lol But if they were to ever really exist I would SO own a pair! lol Then her car is haunted by a ghost who can be a little annoying. Her jobs are also VERY interesting! Lifting hexes && driving a limo for different creatures. One of the creatures being a Java The Hut look alike that produces a very foul odour && has a crush on her. (He's a bit perverted X_X) lol There are many very interesting characters/creatures in this book. I really recommend it if you're into books like this. :)(less)

I'm really hoping the author writes many more. :) My favorite part of this book was the finale chapter. "Fluff and Puff VS Cupid" lmao!! As always, there are some great characters in this book. Horace the gargoyle is ridiculous but in a funny way! As for Trev, I like to think of him as Simon Baker. ;) *purrrrr!* hahahaha If you've been thinking of reading this series, just do it!! Even the hearts that appear over Trev && Stacies head are funny. Imagine making love with hearts over your head and them high fiving each other when you've finished bc it was so great. <3 lol(less)

The book seemed slow to me, it does speed up towards the end & surprising things happen. On it being slow, maybe it was bc the author didn't make more things interesting enough. There were several times I caught myself putting the book down playing a scene in my head that I thought she didn't give enough detail to, & if she would have done that it would have added more juice to the book. The main character I didn't like either. She was just too boring. Really no sense of humor. Nothing special about her other than she's a wyrd witch. I'm kind of disappointed I wasted money on this book. I'm just grateful that the last third of the book did speed up & caught more of my attention. I did like how she described the fae. If that's worth anything.
If you are interested in reading this book tho, don't let this review discourage you. Many others have read Grave Witch with no problems. This could be one of your treasures. Sadly, it just wasn't one of mine.
******spoiler alert******* I may just end up reading the second book after this....only bc Death himself is interesting and after saying he loves her... whoa! Give me more of that!! And who knows, sometimes the beginning of a series is rough but then as it goes on it gets better,... maybe I'll get lucky.(less)

When I first started this I was definitely on the side of "yeah right. This is a joke. Wtf is this? Seriously???" But then I kept reading on and all the positive vibes I got from the book got me pretty optimistic and I thought "Ok, I will FEEL this!" lol And truth be told, no matter how retarded I feel for admitting it, it actually worked. hahahah I recommend reading this book and watching the movie. Sad to say though, You'll either get it... or you won't. You have to really pay attention to understand all this. As it says, this isn't about JUST wanting something or a crazy imagination. It's not about walking past a jewelry store, you wanting that ring and then POOF!, the next day you'll have it. The Secret goes on a WHOLE other level! It's much more than that. That's why while reading this book I had a pen and highlighter with me to keep notes. It's very deep stuff that may sound so stupid to you, God I know!!! but after putting it to the test myself, I can't say that this stuff is total bullocks. lol
Hey, if anything, focusing on positivity, your dreams, gratitude and happiness can not hurt you! You'll only feel better from it and benefit from it. And heeeey, wouldn't that be a little bit of The Secret working??? haha(less)

It kept my attention right from the beginning (how he lost his fangy fang was pretty funny to me). The characters had me laughing out loud. Some of the parts seems kind of cheesy but to me that just added to the humor. It wasn't tooooo bad. *wink wink* haha I finished the book in 2 days only bc I couldn't put it down. I loved the characters too much to stay away!
There was romance, drama, action, comedy... all something for a really good book! Everything was evenly flowed, no boring bits (some authors just talk and talk and talk and drag, this book did not do that.) (less)

Maybe during the first 100 pages but not long after that. There were only 2 times when I got excited while reading this. The first time when Rapheal comes to Joys hotel room for the first time. Aaaand the second time would be when I realized I was almost done with the book. It became pretty predicable to me. The main character and her best friend are very annoying and immature. I wanted to yell (at the main character specifically) to just SHUT THE HELL UP!!!! I'm surprised they didn't start talking like omg like this!!! This book had one vampire in it. Sorry if this is a spoiler but if you're looking for a good vampire book, don't go with this one. This is more of a mystery than a vampire or supernatural book.
With my review it sounds like I should be giving this book a 1 or 2 stars but I'm being generous with 3 stars considering just bc this book wasn't for me or what I expected doesn't mean it won't be amazing for someone else. Regardless either way, the title, cover, and info on the back seem to be very misleading to me. But seriously, if you're looking for a vampy book with action and not goth wanna bes and one vampire that doesn't even have a huge part in this then do yourself a favor and skip this one. (less)

While reading this I MADE SURE to keep a highlighter with me. By the time I was done reading it the book was FULL of highlights. Though reading this book didn't change my life and it's not one my favorites, it did bring some good points and helped me calm myself and helped with meditation. (less)

It would have been better if I didn't already know all of the advice that they gave in the book. (and was already practicing). I think this book is more geared to woman who are just shopaholics and they NEED the most expensive brands out there. People who aren't being careful with their money. Over all, I think this is a budget 101 book for people who don't have a clue how to do it bc they are too busy spending their money on lip injections.(less)

Playing The Victim is about a girl trying to make it into the acting business. The writer and director of the play she is in is a sadistic prick who expects way too much out of her. It's not until she follows him into a BDSM club that she finds out what he really wants of her and things get really heated. I found myself relating to The Butterfly Girl. I don't know if that's bad or good though.
Good Vibrations is about a dildo that comes to life. hahahaha Need I say more??
Satisfaction is about a pervert who likes to stalk Sandy. He thinks he's some big tough man with all the control over her. Breaking into her house and playing games with her. It's not until the end when he breaks in one night and he's had enough of the games that he finds out he's not the one in charge. He's just another pawn and he's in a lot of danger!(less)
