Sara had always been careful.
She never spoke of magic, never associated with those suspected of handling magic, never thought of magic, and never, ever, let anyone see her mark. After all, the last thing she wanted was to end up missing, like her father and brother.
Then, a silver elf pushed his way into Sara's dream, and her life became anything but ordinary.

I was so ready to like this book, the idea behind it really intrigued me, sadly it didn't live up to my expectations. In any way. What if there were magical and non-magical people, and what if they went to war? And even more shockingly, what if the non-magical people won? That is the idea that Copper Girl is based on. Sara is born into a legendary and magic-rich family; however, in the present climate, that brings nothing but danger and trouble, so Sara blends in. That is, until sh

Wow. Copper Girl really blew me away. Ever since I heard of Copper Girl I was really intrigued about it and couldn't wait to read it. Especially since my good friend Jennifer Allis Provost wrote it. As soon as my ARC came through my door I instantly had to start it straight away. Copper Girl is positively the most unique book I have ever read and it completely surpassed all of my expectations. I genuinelly loved every single second of it.

Sara has got to be careful. She is a magical being living

Thank you very much, Spence City for this amazing ARC. I love you, guys!

I must admit that I’ve only read a few fairy books so far, but at least I can say they were among the best of their type.Starting from today, I’ll add “Copper Girl” by Jennifer Allis Provost to my list of “great fairy books” because Jen’s writing style is great and the storyline easily draws you in with its originality, so that you will f

In love love love with this book! A whole new world of magic and fairies that you will fall in love with.

Sara hasn't practiced magic in a long time, not since her brother went missing. She pretends it doesn't exist, until one day Micah invades her dream. Somehow she summoned him and doesn't know what to do but she is drawn to him like no other. Sara is strong, stubborn, pretty and smart, she is willing to do whatever it takes to save her brother and protect the ones she loves. By what happens wh

Can I just say that Spencer Hill has released another EPIC book! Copper Girl was a very unexpected read for me. I loved the cover and I knew I wanted to read it because I was curious about it but I never thought I would totally fall in love with it. It is just simply amazing and I need book two like ASAP! This is one of those books that sneaks up on you and leaves you breathless and speechless because it has so many elements to it that there is never a dull moment or lag in the story.

Prelim Review: This was, for the most part, very enjoyable. It took a little while for me to get past the beginning narrative though. I couldn't tell at first if Provost was just info-dumping REALLY BAD or if it was meant to be outside of the narrative sort of. How I finally decided to take it was like this: Sara was telling a story to us (its in first person so this makes sense) and like most people during stories they tend to get sidetracked or digress into an explanation of something, these w ...more

I'm giving this 2 stars because of the potential of the story. I almost NEVER give 1 star. I just love reading and think most attempts at writing a story deserve at least 2 stars.

This book, again, had SO much potential. I kept reading hoping that things would change. It started out like a Romance novel. Tons of "almost" sex scenes. I bought this book because it looked like an easy to read fantasy "dystopian" novel. It turned out to be a romance novel in the guise of a fantasy story.

ARC provided by author.

Well, I've had a great weekend, two paranormal books that have been a real treat to read with both comprising of something very different to the norm. (this one and Relic, Renee Collins. )

There's a straight-into-the-story feel about this book, with further revelations about the worlds being revealed as the story continues. We meet Sara who seems like an ordinary girl, on her lunch break sitting in her car. She thinks she's dreaming whe

Copper Girl is the start of what could be a great series.

Following a war between those with magic and those without, Humans won. Now magic is governed, if you have it, you either work for the government or die! Sara has magic, in fact her whole family have it and her ancestry is powerful but she can’t let people know what she’s capable of, she can’t let them know that her mark is a symbol of that magic because if anyone found out… s

This is the kind of book that you can’t really think too hard about. Don’t question things too much, just sit back and enjoy the ride. If you can do that, then you will thoroughly enjoy this one. It is quick and fun and really just a fairy tale. I had no trouble getting lost in this one.

I am not entirely sure why, but when I picked this up I thought it was a YA book. So color me surprised when chapter one treats us to some schmexy. I’m not complain

There are so many dystopian novels out there but not many of them feel fresh. This book was so different and fun, both because I actually LOVED the female protagonist (female protagonists in the past few years have become frustratingly bland to me, in so many cases), but also because the setting was so... well... depressing!

Here's a woman who has to work for a living. And where does she work? Maybe at a bar or some exciting venue? No way, man, she works in a boring office. Actually, boring doesn

I was given an ARC copy of this book by the publisher.

Copper Girl is the story of Sara, from the blurb we know nothing except that she had always been careful, never spoken of magic, and never revealed her mark. Then, a silver elf called Micah pushes his way into Sara’s life, a mysterious elf who knows things others don’t, and her life becomes anything but ordinary. We watch as Sara learns more about her family, her world, and herself, and in doing so reveals that the start of something importan

My Review:

I am quite impressed with this book. I really wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading. I was thinking maybe some glow-y fairy type creatures. Umm, yeah… no! This is a fascinating take on the world of the Fae, and how the future has molded them and their adaptions. The world building is spectacular. It’s given me a whole new out look as too “cool”. It’s perfect for summer reading as it’s a quick read, fast paced, and full of interesting twists.

Sara lives and ordinary life. She has a boring job and does whatever she can to fit in. She is anything but normal. She has had to hide her magic ever since a war years ago banished all magical things. She can't use her powers because if she does she will disappear just like her brother did years ago. She daydreams at lunch one day about a mysterious lover. When she wakes she is surprised to find her panties gone. She is further surprised when she finds out her dream lover is real and an elf nam ...more

This is a perfectly serviceable urban fantasy. It's a romance, but not Romance, if you know what I mean.

I guess I should tell you what I mean. No real explicit sex scenes, and the book does have a bit of a plot beyond the heroine and the hero getting together.

The basic premise- magic exists but has been almost eradicated, some people have Elemental powers, and our heroine has an affinity for Copper- is interesting. We don't see too much magic. Our heroine has a boring office job, lives in a sm

Such a promising synopsis - sigh. I got the impression that it's a YA fantasy novel, but instead it's a typical chicklit-storyline where the heroine met her hero on the 4th page and he calls her all the time "My Sara....". That's just too much saccharine-eternal-everlasting love and I got pretty soon sick of it! Moreover, the plot is - also due to it's length of just 250-something pages - very sparse with detailed descriptions of the surroundings. I don' usually look forward to or even register ...more

What the ever loving fuck garbage did I try to read?
I got this book for free, after signing up to be a part of the Copper Ravens book tour. They offered me both books to review with complete honesty.

This book is laughable, inexcusable, and downright insulting to literature. People ask me why I think that Cassandra Clare is a capable enough author- I'd kindly like to direct them towards this. Copper Girl is an exposition garbage disposal which readers stick hopeful hands into. Blame that open end

I honestly didn't know what to expect when I started this, I won the book in a giveaway because I thought it sounded interesting. I was then blown away on how much I love this book! Sara is a girl that knows she isn't normal, but is doing everything the way she is suppose to to live in the mundane world. She encounters Micah whom tells her she calls to him in her dreams. I believe Micah has to be one of my favorite book crushes I have had all year. He cares so much for Sara sands even when she p ...more

I've had this ARC since BEA, and since I did the cover, I knew I was going to read it at some point once I plowed my way through my massive (and growing) TBR pile.

I am so glad I finally did--I will admit I am possibly biased since I am the cover designer and well-acquainted with the author. That being said, I think knowing her only enhanced my appreciation of her dry wit and wicked crazy imagination. I enjoyed the blend of dystopia and fantasy very much. As someone who mainly reads young adult

The author, Jennifer Allis Provost is doing a signing at our store on the 15th of September and I can't wait to meet her and ask her about the next book! I admit, I did skip a bit, hence the four stars, but that's because I wanted to get to the end that much faster. I re-read the last 20 or so pages three times. I'll go back and read everything, but I just HAD to get to the end so I knew what happened! I can't stand audience and I'm ...more

It had the elements of a good book, both fantasy and dystopian. But it was like everything was a sketch, nothing was filled out. The characters are basic, not enough backstory to make them interesting. The story also doesn't have enough details. Sections of narrative would be interrupted by italicized passages explaining backstory, but they were jarring at best with the way they were (not) introduced. I could pick on details of the story, too, weaknesses and confusing issues, but it isn't worth ...more

I received this ARC at BEA. I give this book 4 1/2 stars. I love the story! Who can resist a book that has fairies, elementals, a hot elf, and other mythical creatures. (I know i sure can't.) The characters are phenomenal and the setting was easy to visualize. (I want to live in a silver castle.) Sara and Micah are my favorite characters and they really balance each other well. ...more

DNF for now around pg 36.

Instant romance and way too much info dumping. Strange italicized sections woven into the narrative. May go back to this eventually, but for now I'm moving onto something else. I rarely stop reading a book I've started, but this one is moving slowly and has failed to capture my attention. If you've read it, let me know if it gets better!

Wow!!!!!!! This was an incredible book!! I loved the language the author used for Micah. I also really liked Sara. She was a strong female lead that had strong family ties. I love when a book shows when a family is so close. The writing was exceptional and the story was intriguing which made this book very to put down. Can't wait to read more from Jennifer Allis Provost!! ...more
