I'm a full-time college sophomore pursuing my B.A. in English with hopes of one day working as an editor. Cats, musicals, documentaries about cults/disasters/tragedies, and curse words are just a few of my favorite things. Also, check out our blog or I WILL FIND YOU.

Charm & Strange

Charm & Strange - Stephanie Kuehn See more of my reviews on Birth of a New Witch! My copy was a finished copy I received from the publisher for review.DNF. I quit at page 92 and skimmed to see the ending.I was promised a mindfuck, but I found a bit of a bore instead. I'm becoming more and more certain that nine out of ten times, I have an allergic reaction to literary YA. Kuehn has talent, but Win's story in the present and his life in the past when he still went by Drew lack the appeal to reel me in and keep me hooked--which is vital for me when a novel is character-driven.Sorry, Win. I'm just not that into you.
