I never wanted a cat, but the ever-kittens don't seem to care, and now I have more than ever.

The last thing I expected when I came to Grimalkin was to learn I'd been cursed. And yet, now I am. I have no choice but to find a way to break it. But first, I need to work out who cast it in the first place.

At least I have some warlocks by my side to lend a helping hand.

This was an incredible sequel! Mona is still cursed, conjuring kittens, and having boy troubles. Daphne puts the idea of polygamy into her head and shes trying to find out if thats what she wants with Caspian, Ryan, and Thomas. Theyre all more than willing, along with Daphne, to break the law and help her uncurse herself, but things dont go according to plan. I loved the mystery of possible sirens attending the school and that Monas magic is finally working correctly despite the kittens. Her ...more

Book 2 in this series continues on from the previous book with Mona, Caspian, Ryan, Thomas and her friend Daphne still trying to find a way to break her curse. Which brings on more kittens popping up, as well as romance, trouble and spells brewing. Cute kittens, hot guys and laughs make for simply a fantastic book and series to read

Our heroine has a curse on her that causes a kitten to appear when she works magic. Plus she has three guys she is attracted to. Too many all around.

This is book two of the series. It works okay as a standalone, but you will be missing most of the setup. Best option is to start with book one.

This is a paranormal reverse harem story. The story is well written and easy to read. The kitten-curse adds humor to the story but makes me think of crazy cat ladies. The characters are good and we are

This is the second book in the Grimalkin Academy Kittens series and we get to watch poor Mona still having issues conjuring anything without a new kitten showing up. With more and more kittens showing up and boy problems around every corner Mona is dealing with a curse that can't be broken while dealing with fun, adventure and learning. I love this slow burn reverse harem series as well as the other stories that have are spin off series and can not wait to read more.

Entertaining

This second in this series is as delightful as the first. The continuation of this lovely read is entertaining and a quick read. The characters remain delightful as Mona continues on her discoveries of what has happened with her magic. The little s are an added bonus!

Mona never expected that when she went to Grimalkin Academy that she would be cursed and that each time she used magic, she would produce a tiny fluffball. She never expected to fall for more than one guy. She never expected to take part in a black magic spell encouraged by her best friend. Honestly, she only hoped for a best friend, never expected one. But that's exactly what has happened. First, her magic wouldn't work at all. Now it seems strong but with each use, she produces an adorable ...more

Mona is on the search for a cure while still conjuring kittens and side-stepping what is becoming a confusing love life for her.

We left Mona having figured out someone cursed her magic to not work. While trying to work her magic she created the cutest kittens: Rhubarb, Ginger, Felix, and Isla. She gained a suitor in new student Caspian. She gave up on her crush on her best friends twin brother Ryan only to find out that he might like her too. Then there is Thomas the warlock teaching assistant

This is a a good quick read. The characters are wonderful to read about.

So we continue with Mona quest to find a way to break a curse. Her relationship with Caspian is rocky, and something may be developing a relationship with Ryan. What about Thomas? Does she think that she needs to choose between them? Will there be a better option for all of them? She still conjures kittens when she uses magic however there is a twist she is able to actually able to do the spell but is rewarded with a

Kittens, kittens, and more kittens. I was too sure about to to being with, but it quickly grew on me and I love the little tid bits about the kittens. The stories mystery is deepening and adding more along the way in this book. Mona's is gathering admirers fast and now is faced with the question what to do with all 3 of them. As answers are being looked for about Mona's cursed magic, more and more questions are being found instead. Now thrown in is the mystery of an unnamed brother-sister set of ...more

This is the slowest slow burn book I think I have ever read. There is more kissing in cozy mysteries then there is in this book. Mona needs to grow a backbone and realize she more then she thinks she is. She doubts herself on everything and it gets annoying have to read it after awhile. I love the kittens but I think they are too much in this book. It could just be me and not wanting to listen to a whinny 18 year old. Maybe if Mona had a backbone or could actually make a decision without being a ...more

I love Monas story she can still only create more kittens with her magic and I just want her to find a cure for the curse but I love the cute little kittens. Things are not getting any better for Mona at the Grimalkin Academy she has 3 love interests and she doesnt know who to choose and dealings with illegal black magic and it might be the only way out for Mona with her curse but will she go through with it?. Theres suspense, mystery, drama, twists and turns, humour, kittens and so much more to ...more

The second book in this really amazing series and one I honestly can not get enough of. Mona keeps making kittens every time she uses magic and the guys and her best friend are trying to figure out what is wrong and how to fix it. I really can not wait for the next book to find out what happens to them all and to see if they can fix her curse. Really excited to learn more about how their relationships with her work out and her figuring out her feelings for them!

Mona is still trying to find a cure for the curse that means that every time she uses her magic, she creates another kitten. This is her second year at Grimalkin, and it seems that a monogamous relationship is not going to be for her - but why is Caspian being charged with using dark magic? A great story with twists and turns, and i cant wait to find out what happens next!

The laughs keep coming but there's also angst and the painstakingly slow process of trying to figure out how to break the curse. You have to have read the first book in order for this one to make sense so read that first. This is the continuation but it does not end here. The mystery is still not solved and need to find out what happens in the third.

I usually like books by Laura Greenwood but this book is an exception. I found it juvenile and incomplete in some key areas. It might have been better if I had read the first book in the series. I wont try to dissuade her fans, but this is definitely not a good one to start on. Is it terrible? It is not. Is it really good? It is not. Meh

Second Times a Curse is the next book in the Grimalkin Academy series from Laura Greenwood, following poor Mona whos still unable to conjure up anything but kittens.

With an ever growing litter of kitties, boy troubles around every bend and a curse that cant be broken, Monas story is full of adventure, learning and fun.

Absolutely loving this fun, slow burn reverse harem series, as well as the spin off series/stories.

Mean girls, boyfriend trouble and too much homework - that is normal for university. Being cursed and trying to cure it with black magic while trying to juggle 3 interested (and interesting) males - not so normal. The combination is painful for Mona, but the kittens are beyond cute. What can I say? I am a sucker for school drama and kittens. Next, please!

If there's something I hate more than a cliffhanger, it's a amazing short novella series.

This book doesn't really develop the plot much, infact this would have come somewhere as the beginning of book 2 in a normal Laura Greenwood book.

Though it ends on a cliffhanger of sorts, it's a good and short read.

Second Time's A Curse is book two of the Grimalkin Academy and I recommend you read book one First Times A Charm before this one otherwise you will be lost. Mona is still having kittens and problems controlling her magic. This is a short novella with humor, drama, fun characters, magic, cute kittens and a curse that needs to be figured out. I can't wait to read the next book in this series to find out what happens next. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

The breathtaking sequel to First times the charm. Mona and her friends are back, along with her adorable kittens. Follow along on their harrowing adventure to get to the bottom of Mona's trouble. The ending definitely makes you long for book 3.

Fun read but darker than the first book!
