They might regret it because I'm gonna rip it a new one.
I was really excited to read A Witch in Time because the premise had all the elements I look for: magic, demons, horror, love, tragic love!
I'm so there!
Then, I started reading.

I disliked Juliet. Intensely. She is a silly little girl with no redeemable qualities.
In fact, the urge to punch her throughout the years only grew with my intense dislike for ...more
I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley. Thank you, Netgalley!
All opinions are my own.
The title and especially the cover are what caught my attention when I first saw this novel. The premise was icing on the cake. I want to preface by stating this is not like a young adult novel of curses, witches, demons and love. This isn’t even like Practical Magic level of witchery. This novel is a curse of revenge done by a lesser witch to “protect” her daughter but it backfires, ...more
My one issue is the endless name/label dropping in Helen's parts of the story. I don't need to know all the brand ...more
Helen Lambert is not what she seems.
A 33 yo Washington, DC professional, she’s sophisticated, fashionable, and recently divorced from Roger, the head of the prestigious Hanover Collection of art. In a vengeful moment, she wishes harm will befall Roger. Imagine her surprise when her wish comes true.
Helen's wish, and its resultant effects, sets in motion the final phase of a 100+ yo curse that has condemned her to ...more
2.5 out of 5 stars
A Witch in Time is a story of a young witch, an artist and a demon cursed to be reborn over and over again to live out a doomed love affair. Once I heard the words witch, artist and demon - I was so there! I was so excited about this book and the cover is gorgeous.
Well this book was not what I expected. The characters were flat, one dimensional, the book jumped the shark ...more
Such an intriguing story!
I really wasn’t sure if I was going to love this book when I first started reading it. At times, the beginning seemed to move too fast, and at other times too slow. But once you get the hang of switching between the stories, start reading more from the other characters’ perspectives, and learn more about those people, the book really takes off. I was so pulled in by each person’s life story, and I loved how ...more
I am a big fan of books such as Time Travler's Wife, and Outlander and I knew I was in for a real treat for A Witch in Time. Everything from the plot, characters and theme I really loved from this book and the plot twist that Juliet is bound to this demon for life from her mother that was trying to save her back in the 18th century and I ...more
The only thing keeping me from rating this book higher is that for a story that hinges upon a demon-driven witch-curse, there is remarkably little of any of that to be found. The curse is almost an afterthought. I mean, I get that the real story here is the love story, but…I feel a little let down. ...more
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC.
I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway. Yay!
I received a free ARC of this book.
I’m always skeptical when a book is described as “for fans of...” any of my favorite books, such as Time Traveler’s Wife, in this case, This book incorporates magic, various places in time, some art, some history. A truly enjoyable read.
