Oh my gosh, both the book and this cover were pretty damn beautiful if I do say so myself.

But anyway.

I have a thing with journeys on the high seas, and even though these guys aren’t technically pirates – well at least not on the surface -, they are giving me that kind of vibe. Actually, the beginning of this

"Beware the touch of the snake! Her skin is poison, and she carries misfortune wherever she goes!"
Fina Perona is a walking curse. Those who touch her skin have terrible luck, sometimes lethal, befall them. Since getting cursed, Fina has pushed everyone away for their own safety. Soon she becomes too dangerous for even her own village so she decides to steal a boat and leave the only home she's ever known. But a terrible storm crashes her little boat and she is saved from the wreckage by a

I received an review copy as part of a blog tour

3.5 stars

A lovely Italian inspired world at the time of the Ottoman Empire. It was interesting and fun enough to read in one sitting, but didn't stir anything emotionally

I have been a fan of Jennifer’s since the moment I was blessed with an early e-copy of Nameless way back in 2015 (oh my…has it really been that long?!). I have now read Nameless three times, Clanless twice, and Fearless once, and I am a forever fan. I don’t think I even looked at the book summary when the notice for this blog tour came across my email – I merely saw the name Jennifer Jenkins and I jumped!

So, unlike Jennifer’s previous books, To Kill a Curse is actually an adult book, not YA.

I love novels set on the high seas so I couldn’t resist picking up this novel after reading the synopsis. The story follows a young woman named Serefina who bears the mark of a curse placed upon her by a dying witch as a child. Whatever or whoever she touches will have misfortune brought to them. Fina feels like a constant burden to those around her so she decides to escape her family’s vineyard and ends up on a merchants ship.

With my degree in History and Secondary Education, I had every intention of teaching teens to love George Washington and appreciate the finer points of ancient battle stratagem. (Seriously, I’m obsessed with ancient warfare. Weird? I know.) However, life had different plans in store when the writing began. As a proud member of Writers Cubed, and a co-founder of the Teen Author Boot Camp, I feel ...more
