I have been waiting on this book since I finished Accidental Leigh. Melanie James is amazing at what she writes... This book had me laughing out loud until I was crying... The stuff that Leigh writes for her family and friends always seems to backfire in one way or another.. If you enjoy some romance and a good laugh this is the series for you. Hunter puts up with a lot of mischief.... Yes read them in order... Cannot wait to see what Melanie James is Brewing up for Hopeful Leigh... Happy Readin ...more

I just loved this book. I finished it in one night again just like the first one. While I loved the first book, this one was even better, and more funny. Especially when you bring in another crazy witch. The way all the girls just cling to her, and attempt to show her the ropes is the best. I could not quit laughing at all the craziness she can get into without even trying really hard. I can't wait for the next one. Great job Melanie James:)

This is the 2nd book in the series and oh my goodness talk about gut busting laughs. This book was even more comical then the first.

Things pickup where we were left hanging in book 1.

Leigh has been transported to the Witches Union and she is given the news that she has broken rules and that the 3 leaders are going to take a part in her book writing. She is also

I don't usually say this about a second installment, but it's even better than the first one! There seems to be no end to the completely unexpected results of Leigh's magical writing power.....I laughed my way through this installment and mostly right out loud. I especially loved the three wick candles worth of wax ( ork ork)
It would seem that there is safety in numbers as far as keeping Leighs spells straight, as when she had Gerty, Esmeralda, Vlad and Marie Laveau all playing their part as the

This book had me laughing out loud. This series is so funny and then men! I would take anyone of those men for my own magical play thing. We get some new characters in this book. Randy I hope we will see more of. I can see so many giggles due to Randy. Leigh and her two best friends got a new member of their little group and those woman just can't stay out of trouble to save their lives. I can't wait to get the next book!

Leigh and her friends are having another adventure. Now she is adding Gertie to her list of friends. Gertie is a bit unusual and a bit sheltered. She will have to teach Leigh things about being a witch, but Leigh needs to teach her about modern day life and language. A fun story.

Recommends it for: Lovers of supernatural romance, drama and witches.
I really liked this book, same as the first in the series. It's original and full of surprises throughout. However, something was missing so it only got 3 stars not four. I still think (like the last book) that it's more of a 3.5 stars though. It's still one of my favourite books.

You can't beat the storyline, we now have a Witches Union to contend with, Leigh must do as they say because they're the top dogs. Which means write what they want written. They're actually a bit of a thorn in the side.

This is the second book in the Literal Leigh Romance Diaries series. I would definitely recommend reading these books in order because one picks up where the last one ends.
I love this series, it is witty and charming. The bumbling efforts of a new Witch with a wonderful power, whenever she sits down at her magic desk and concocts a story, it comes to life. Leigh has been summoned to the local Witch’s Union and informed by the review board that she is to continue writing the books she wants to w

Another seriously entertaining story. Leigh has met the witches union and discovered that they intend to use her new-found writing magic for their own benefit. Leigh will not be allowed to write her own stories because the witches in charge are going to dictate to her the characters they want to read about and even the plot hey want her to follow. It seems like an odd thing for them to want to control, but Leigh pretty much intends to ignore their suggestions. Instead Gertie is going to help her ...more

More amusing antics from Leigh, the new witch on the block, things get interesting with Leigh still writing stories and the old witches getting involved. Melanie James weaves an amusing tale of the mayhem of magic in the hands of the inexperienced.

This is the second book in the Literal Leigh Series. You must read the first book, Accidental Leigh, before this one to have a good understanding of what is going on. This was a quick and very funny read. It even has a nice little saucy scene!

This book starts off with Leigh finding herself in a little hot water with the Witches Union. She's been tasked to write a very specific story with her magic desk. She needs to bring to life a hybrid werewolf/vampire hybrid, and she only has a limited time

This is such a fun series! I barely finished reading book one that I grabbed the next one and started reading. There are many laugh-out-loud moments with this witch in training. Leigh, her cursed writing desk and her very familiar, marvelous cat, Luna, find ways to have adventures no one had thought would happen in the life of an author. Writing after all is a lonely, boring life. Right? Not for this newbie witch.

These are quick reads but don't feel like short stories. They are layered with full

This is definitely a 5 star rating book! Written with wit, humor, and adventure I pat Melanie James on the back! She knows how to write a story with a wonderful plot tossed in between humorous scenes that'll cause you to roll out of your chair in laughter. Leigh Epstein is a witch who is introduced to the Witches Union. Once introduced she becomes assigned a tutor for her powers, becomes much more cozy with her male friend Hunter, and tries to NOT destroy her friend's and family's lives with the ...more

Another great read from Melanie James found myself laughing in a good number of spots - had to do it quietly while I was on the bus reading too.

Following on from where Accidentally Leigh end, Leigh is before the witch's council. Thankful its a small fee to be paid but she gets a bad feeling from them. She is also assigned Gertie to teacher her to be a witch, thankful they get on together like a house on fire. Leigh and Hunter continue with their romance but given the mishaps that happen around h
