Woo it’s Thursday! And I took tomorrow off of work, so it’s like Friday for me, which I’m the most excited for! I’m slowly but surely catching up with all of the books I need to read and review, so that’s good (now I’m only maybe like 4-5 behind instead of 8-9 behind) so another three day weekend should hopefully help out with that.
Thank you so much to Sourcebooks Casablanca and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of Witch Please! This book came our on September 7th, so definitely go check it out as soon as you’ve finished reading my review!
Witch Please 4/5 Stars
Summary from Goodreads:
Practical Magic meets Gilmore Girls in this adorable witchy rom-com with:
• A bisexual virgin baker with a curse
• A witch looking to avoid romantic entanglements
• And a chemistry between them that causes literal sparks
Danica Waterhouse is a fully modern witch—daughter, granddaughter, cousin, and co-owner of the Fix-It Witches, a magical tech repair shop. After a messy breakup that included way too much family “feedback,” Danica made a pact with her cousin: they’ll keep their hearts protected and have fun, without involving any of the overly opinionated Waterhouse matriarchs. Danica is more than a little exhausted navigating a long-standing family feud where Gram thinks the only good mundane is a dead one and Danica’s mother weaves floral crowns for anyone who crosses her path.
Three blocks down from the Fix-It Witches, Titus Winnaker, owner of Sugar Daddy’s bakery, has family trouble of his own. After a tragic loss, all he’s got left is his sister, the bakery, and a lifetime of terrible luck in love. Sure, business is sweet, but he can’t seem to shake the romantic curse that’s left him past thirty and still a virgin. He’s decided he’s doomed to be forever alone.
Until he meets Danica Waterhouse. The sparks are instant, their attraction irresistible. For him, she’s the one. To her, he’s a firebomb thrown in the middle of a family war. Can a modern witch find love with an old-fashioned mundane who refuses to settle for anything less than forever?
Witch Please was such an interesting book- I loved the idea of different families having different types of magic (but spoiler alert, it didn’t make any sense at all to me that Danica’s mom had a different type of magic if all Waterhouse witches were supposed to have technology magic). I also really liked Clem (Danica’s cousin)- I kinda liked her more than I liked Danica, so I’m the most excited about her book. Titus was fine, but I liked his sister and stepsister better than him too, so it’s a little sad that I wasn’t the biggest fan of the main characters. I did enjoy the plot though- the whole idea of a witch instantly falling in love with a mundane and then having to not be with him because of her biased grandmother and all of the lies she told throughout her life was great. Plus a witch hunter coming in and Clem (my fave!) having to distract him so Danica doesn’t raise red flags, definitely a great plot point! I really liked that Titus owned a bakery and I loved his nickname (CinnaMan lol)- Sugar Daddy’s is such a great name for a bakery! There was so much promise in this book and I did enjoy it, and I know I’d have loved it even more if I had liked Danica and Titus more. I have very high hopes for book 2 though!
