Kristine (A Cozy Booknook)
This is an entertaining, quick story in the Nocturne Falls Universe. The author has crafted a story with interesting and vivid characters, a bit of a mystery, and romance. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, my review has been voluntarily submitted.

Broccoli and Broomsticks by Jennifer Fischetto

From the Nocturne Falls Universe Kindle world. A town of paranormals that celebrates Halloween every day.

Young adult. Zombies of the non-violent variety and a hunter. Vegan zombies. Witches. First attraction, learning young love.
A short mystery style novella. With a funny tag line: No hood, no entrance.

This is a great book; this book is part of the Nocturne Falls Universe and is written by Jennifer Fischetto. The Nocturne Falls series is written by Kristen Painter and I was so happy that these new books by new authors were asked to write a story in the town. Nocturne Falls is a town that celebrates Halloween every day of the year and also a place that paranormal’s can live and not have to hide what they really are. Aria Ricci comes from a powerful family of witches, the problem is she doesn’t ...more

I have to admit that among all of NFU books (and I’ve read them all), I like this one the least. I skipped so many chapters because I didn’t find it compelling.

The way the story wrote was good, flowing effortlessly. However, the story itself was just lacking. The main characters were okay, yet the supportive characters were not supportive at all. They’re so annoying to the level that I didn’t want to read about them. Unfortunately, the supportive characters parts were quite a lot, thus the skipp

The first book of Jennifer Fischetto in Nocturne Falls was for me an interesting story. The story was a mix of Kitchen Witch meets Van Helsing meets Warm Bodies. This is a standalone book, although the use of people and locations in Nocturne Falls was well done. The story is unique and only felt a little preachy about being vegan. I was confused about the female lead in the book for the first two to three chapters as it wasn't readily apparent she was female. The zombie scenes were more humorous ...more

Aria is from a family full of witches but her powers never came in. Which makes life tough being the only normal in the family. But when her brother Gio is bitten and turns into a broccoli craving zombie she’s determined to keep him alive and stop the cute hunter who’s determined to put an end to him.

This book was different, but really enjoyable. I mean zombies that eat broccoli over brains. Vegan instead of carnivore was actually a lot of fun to read and have a little giggle over. And of course

Late Bloomer

Fun YA wacky paranormal adventure set in Nocturne Falls, where being “normal” is NOT the norm. When Gio turns into a Broccoli-eating zombie, his younger sister (the only member of her witchy family yet to manifest any powers) tries to find a cure. Hijinks ensue as Aria conducts her initially clandestine investigation, drawing in a cute zombie hunter, friends and an eccentric grandmother. Matters get complicated before Veggies ultimately save the day. Lots of humor, a scare or two and

A fun read about not so scary zombies

I enjoyed this book. It gave an interesting and unique spotlight on cruciferous vegetables. The characters were great. The only thing that bothered me was, she put off telling her mom what happened. Until mom found out. Since I'm a mom, and not a teen, this bothered me. It was explained in the story line. So it's just me. About halfway through the plot picked up and it became a real page turner.
Great addition to Nocturne Falls Universe.

This is one of the best books in the Nocturne Falls Universe. It sucked me right in from the very beginning and held on tight. This author has such an amazing imagination. What a neat idea to do with zombies! While the characters were in high school, it read like a grown up read also. My favorite part was how funny it was. I couldn’t stop laughing at the clever humor added.

Aria’s brother gets turned into a zombie and she ends up meeting Malik who is a hunter. Through some simple twists and turns Aria discovers her powers as well as the cause of the zombie infection.

Very entertaining

Very entertaining! I enjoyed this book a lot. There are several times where it made me laugh. It wasn't silliness that made me laugh. Some paranormal books get kind of silly. This one was great!

Was fun to have a story about almost zombies!! Nice romance throughout as well and the family themes through tour were very down to earth even though they were supernatural beings well worth reading

This was a fast paced read with light humor and romance.

It was well written with an interesting character pool centered around Aria and her family. Interesting concept by having a broccoli loving zombie! Hopefully we’ll see more from this author in the NFU!

Wow first zombie story worth reading.

I avoid zombie stories like the plague. This one is short, to the point and has a decently happy ending. Well done.

Cute book. It is a young adult version, but i really enjoyed it -- even though I am not a broccoli lover.

Shelves: kristen-painter
Two and a half stars for the effort.
This is the first book in the Nocturne Falls Universe from this author and I am not sure that I want to read more as I was unable to complete this book. I have never rated a book this low and I hope I never will again. And I will explain why. But firstly I would like to clarify trhat there is nothing wrong with the author's writing style, it is the content and the opinions the author conveys in her writing that made me drop the book like a hot potato.
