La Pierre de lune
J’ai certainement rêvé d’aventure et d’émotions, de m’évader de ma vie plutôt ordinaire… mais rien de tout cela ne pouvait me préparer à ce qui s’est produit comme un bingbang dans ma normalité…
Une sorcière, une vraie, m’a ...more

The book tells the story of Lou, a 20 years old girl, who thinks she is completely ordinary until one day she discovers she is a witch, an enchanter, and she must train at the Academy to become a warrior if ever a war occurs between enchanters and humans.

Reasons this book was lovely:
- Something about it was just so entertaining?? I can’t put my finger on what, exactly, kept me coming back to the book, but it had me hooked.
- In general, the word choice and grammar was accurate! The translation never impeded my understanding of what was happening.
- I got really invested in the characters.
- CRAZY PLOT TWISTS.
- Because it’s a translation from French to English, the writing wasn’t ...more

This book was filled with adventure, twists and turns, friendship and romance. It had a bit of a slow start but after the action picks up you’re grateful for it because it actually feels like it was preparing you for what it was to come.
Lou Mills, the main character of this story, has always dreamed of adventure, so when her next door neighbour, the witch that has watched ...more
So, Lou Mills, the main character, dreams of adventure. You know what they say, "Be careful what you wish for" because all of ...more
First things that makes me love this book is I love how the author write the story, it's so flowing, the story has fast pace but it's not rushing and I enjoy every page of this book.
The second one is the main character, Lou Mills. Her character feels so real and she is a lovable character. I love how her character grows, become more stronger but still has her naive and vulnerable ...more
Okay where do I start?
Lou Mills is an average girl who is about to get two weeks of peace and quiet to read while her parents go on a cruise. Or so she thought. Someone reveals to her that she is an enchanter. Someone with actual magical powers. Lou has a hard time believing all this until her world gets flipped upside down and she is taken to a place you normally would only visit between the pages of a book.
I didn't expected to love this book so much, this book is so magical and I love the world building, the characters (especially Mr. Black!) and of course that unexpected PLOT TWIST!!!!
I feel like ...more
"Sometimes when we love, we need to give up our personal needs for those of others. I will never understand how she found the courage to do what she did."
The story is about a girl named Lou Mills that discovered she is an enchanter or specifically a moonchild. At first, she didn't believe it but eventually ...more

Favorite Quote: ""Good and evil are just a matter of perspective. They're opposites that are separated by a fine line."
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This arrangement did not alter my opinions in any way.
Lou Mills previously had a normal life. She had two adoptive parents who loved her dearly, she worked at the library, and she spent her time dreaming about her future expedition to Greece and reading about the many ...more
So I need to break this review in 2 parts: 1st pre chapter 7 and the 2nd is chapter 7 and onward
So here it goes (pre-chapter 7): I though the first chapters were wayy to big and all the things happening in them seem too rushed and kind of contraditory, and it makes Lou (our main character) look a little childish and I do think we needed to see a bit more work on the "finding about this world and becoming part of them" plot in the sense that she accepts all of this way to...more
The Moonstone is the first book in the Enchantment Series written by author Evelyne Contant. We meet a teenage girl name Lou whose only dream is to go on an adventure and escape her ordinary life like the ones she reads in books at the library where she works. One day, her parents left her for 2 weeks to go on a cruise. Her normal life was then turned upside down after meeting her next door neighbor, a witch, who then reveals to her ...more
the starting of this book was very slow. i was a little confused as there wasn't much world building, but everything gets explained slowly as the book progresses. i really like the idea of the school where everyone trains. i felt lou was a little mary sue with how easily she seemed to pick ...more
So basically Lou (who thinks she is an ordinary girl ) finds out that she is an Enchanter which means ...more
to be honest i had a hard time starting this series, the writing style is different from books i mostly read so thats probably the reason for it. when i got through the first 3 chapters and got used to the writing style i was hooked!
the story follows Lou who discovers that she is an enchanter, and not just any enchanter but a moonchild and the key to an ancient prophecy. will she leave her (human) parents to discover where she belongs? and while doing so fighting for ...more
So let's get started

Lord Black ticked everything on my Book Boyfriend check list. Tall, Dark, Handsome, and Mysterious. I could drown on those freakish blue eyes all day.
The world of Enchantment is, well enchanting *cough* sorry. A young ...more
Yes, I do feel crushed...
First I want to thank the amazing author, Evelyne, for providing me with a copy of this book to review. I am thankful to have gotten a chance to read it!
The Moonstone is the kind of book that you don’t know what to expect from. The first three to four chapters left me intrigued, but with only a small sense of where the story was going. I kept an open mind and was pleasantly surprised!
The writing was in my opinion quite poetic at ...more
I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review, however this does not have an impact on my opinions. Also, the original story is written in French and I read the translated version in English.
Alright, let’s get to reviewing.
Briefly, the story in The Moonstone follows our MC Lou Mills who is twenty one years old. She’s living an ordinary life, living with her parents and working at a library to save up money for studies abroad. As her parents leave ...more
OMG. What a great book. I'm still thinking about it and it's been a few hours. I'm just a huge fan of the world Evelyne Contant created. It was somewhat, just somewhat, Harry Potter-like, but still entirely it's own with everything, with effortlessly mixed in elements from some of our favorite legends....Atlantis and mythical creatures (i.e. Bigfoot, etc.). One of my favorite nuances that she ...more
My thoughts :
Omg this book! is definitely my kind of book. Fantasy-Romance filled with magic, romance, adventure and lastly sweets. It was fast pace and the world building was amazing. You can easily get into it unlike other fantasy books out there that makes my head spin in confusion of its world building.
As for the characters...We have ...more
