Download Epub Format ↠´ Blood Magic PDF by Ð Tessa Gratton Blood Magic is about witches Finally something other than Vampires and Werewolves I liked it, I thought it was fun and fresh, but it wasn t enough to really compel me to say you know, this is a very good book It was missing something though I cant quite put my finger on it Regardless, I still almost gave it a 4 star.
The plot is part magical lore, part mystery Silla s parents died tragically, and although everyone is convinced it was a murder suicide, Silla is not After receiving a spell book from Deacon, whoever that is and to her amazement they re actually working she s even convinced that someone was involved in her parent s death The mystery part is what intrigued me the most Everyone is made a suspect and even if I wanted to guess there were too many choices to even bother, so I just enjoyed it and kept reading It was i Pros It didn t have a love triangle Parents weren t completely absent Siblings weren t annoyingly complicating things Other kids weren t shown under a bad light to make the main characters look better Not as much angst as there could have been.
Cons Boring Instalove Did I say boring Dual POV that didn t work Both Nicholas and Silla acted like two girls in love.
So, yeah I didn t even hate it enough to give it one star Just meh.
It Starts Off Simply Draw A Circle Place A Dead Leaf In The Center Sprinkle Some Salt Recite A Little Latin Add A Drop Of BloodMaybe That Last Part Isn T Exactly Simple Yet Somehow It Feels Right To Silla Kennicott And Nothing In Her Life Has Felt Remotely Right Since Her Parents Horrific Deaths She S Willing To Do Anything To Uncover The Truth About Her Family Even Try A Few Spells From The Mysterious Book That Arrived On Her Doorstep And Spill Some BloodThe Book Isn T The Only Recent Arrival In Silla S Life There S Nick Pardee, The New Guy Next Door Who May Have Seen Silla Casting A Spell She S Not Sure What He Saw And Is Afraid To Find Out But As They Spend Time Together, Silla Realizes This May Not Be Nick S First Encounter With Blood Magic Brought Together By A Combination Of Fate And Chemistry, Silla And Nick Can T Deny Their Attraction And They Can T Ignore The Dark Presence Lurking Nearby Waiting To Reclaim The Book And All Its Power It s just a little over four hundred pages and, honestly, there may have been one chapter or fifteen too many From the get, the first thing that came to mind was that I d read it before a girl with a tragic past meets hot boy who doesn t get along with his stepmother Then there s the alternating points of view between Silla and Nick as well as glimpses into someone s past It was a chore Normally, switching POVs is something I enjoy What s not to love when you get the same story told by different people The problem is, had the story been told by just one of them, it could have been tight and I might not have been as bored as I was maybe And they love each other desperately, passionately oh, I don t know, having known each other after, what two seconds That s not the biggest thing though, what annoyed me the most, what had me cri I absolutely adored this book It completely drew me in from the very start and I just could not put it down Cemeteries, Blood Magic and bodies being possessed were the recipe for an absolutely freaking fantastic story I can t believe this has been sitting on my shelf for so long and I ve been missing out on its greatness Seriously, I couldn t have loved this book It was deliciously creepy and strange and I m absolutely dying to get started on the second book 4.
5 starsBlood Magic isn t like any of the hocus pocus books I ve read before This one had a very unique flavor racing throughout the book Tessa Gratton writing is cunningly crafted in a way that makes this book standout in a mysterious lushish way.
The atmosphere has a life of it s very own Thick, rich and intoxicating, while these characters have the most intriguing energy.
There is a lot of blood in this book It s frequently talked about, thought about and basically dripped out of these pages It tended to get a little uncomfortable while reading, so needless to say it wasn t something I could read in one sitting But despite the ick factor, I couldn t get the story out of my head Silla is a disturbed character Desperate for answers about what happened to her parents, she becomes very addicted to the Blood Magic I m warning you, it s long When I picked this book up, the plot reminded me of Gillian Shields Immortal , which I liked I d probably lower the rating if I read it again, because back then I was a very lenient reader.
Now on to Blood Magic There are choppy sentences, unneeded and unwanted details, and it s repetitive I think Tessa the author hates the word that, or doesn t know its use Tessa likes to compare things to stone Why is this book so long and slow Nick and Silla s first kiss bothered me it was too much, and their feelings didn t match it I declare this relationship as lust at first sight Stop kissing and build the relationship up so it s believable I shake my head at these horny and angsty teens Please don t summarize a scene we had to endure through it wa
Hello, people I like writing in bold letters because it is fun You know what else is fun Reading book reviews like this one Ah hem Anyway Hello It s almost 1 AM and I feel strangely perky But knowing me, I will probably randomly conk out any minute And for some reason, I always think it will take me such a short amount of time to write a book review even though it always takes me ages But, oh well.
I ll start off by saying, I had mixed feelings about this book.
The first time I stumbled upon it here on Goodreads, I said to myself, Hey, that book has a pretty cool cover And it sounds decent So I might give it a shot Then I saw a live author chat with Tessa Gratton and a few other authors, and Tessa seemed like a really cool person Plus she s friends with Maggie Stiefvater, so that makes her made of awesome in my book So I said, Yeah I think I ll read th I can t finish it My tolerance for YA PNR is very low, but I was looking forward to reading Blood Magic after seeing some really favorable early reviews of it Can you blame for hoping this book will be another Unearthly The novel starts with Silla performing Blood Magic for the very first time at the cemetery where her parents are buried Her mother and father recently died in a horrendous murder suicide and an enigmatic friend sent Silla her father s notebook of spells which each requires the use of blood A new neighborhood guy, Nicholas, sees Silla cutting her finger and reviving a dead leaf and is intrigued by her They quickly get acquainted and fall for each other What happens next, I do not know, I stopped reading at page 50.
The first turnoff for
so much, in fact, that I can t possibly write a review without sounding like a 12 year old girl gushing about Justin Bieber You deserve better than that, so I ll simply bullet the things I liked best about Ms Gratton s writing style, and Blood Magic specifically Ms Gratton weaves this compelling enchantment by letting the characters have their own voices Sometimes Silla is telling the story, sometimes it is Reese, or Nicholas and sometimes, we are shown excerpts from a very old journal.
o The font used for the journal entries is a beautiful script, lending authenticity to the tale Characters are aptly named We are given hints as to who the old souls are, as they have older names, such as Drusilla Silla , Josephine, and Philip The co
