  • A Wish in Her Hand, by Amberlee Day
    Professor Miri Keeler's life is perfect, and she knows just the sort of man she wants to share it with. When she meets a genie who's willing to grant her a favor, she uses her wish to get the attention of her crush, poet Jamison Arbor. But has the genie's magic missed its target? Miri suddenly has the attention of not only Jamison, but also of Alex, an attractive maintenance man. How will she know which is the right match for her, or what's real and what's magic?

  • Reality Ever After, by Cami Checketts
    Pregnant at eighteen, Sydney Richland's happily ever after is in serious peril. Her grandmother's ghost can work miracles, but she also might ruin Sydney's chances with the man of her dreams.

  • Prom Diaries, by Taylor Hart
    Sixteen-year-old Lacy O'Donnell discovers her best friend has cast a spell, putting everyone in a time loop, forcing them to relive the same four days before prom over and over. The good thing--Lacy doesn't remember the loop. The bad thing--Drake Davis, the guy she's been stalking, does. Only true love's kiss can break the spell, but true love's kiss has to happen at a precise moment. It's not exact science...it's exact magic.

  • What If Wish, by Lucy McConnell
    Morana is doomed to a life cataloging spells deep below the palace unless she can make her magic bloom. If her deepest wish comes true, it would open up all sorts of possibilities. The whispers that she was a fluke of nature would hush. The King would stop stalking her. Her parents would no longer live under a cloud of shame. And, Adam could look at her as more than a friend. Despite the promises magic holds, Morana will quickly learn that the thing she wishes for most, could quickly be her undoing.
I recommend this fun book of Magic and fantasy even if it isn't something you normally read. I am not huge into fantasy and such but it was a good book all around. Here are my individual reviews.... 

Angel in Black Fedora 
What a cute story! Not the normal romance but one I think my daughter will like to read. I'd probably consider it a YA book. I really liked the story line and the ending that shows things don't always go as planned and also people aren't always as they seem. Both good lessons for anyone to remember! 

A Wish in Her Hand
I like when I book helps you to see something in a different light. Some many times in our lives we think our hearts or minds want one thing when in actuality we are meant for something totally different. This book is one on those! 

Reality Ever After 
I love Cami Checketts! Her books never disappoint! This one really hit home for me. I made some choices when I was young that could have easily landed me where Sydney was. Luckily for me, they didn't when I was young and unmarried. However, this story really touched me and I related to it more than I care to admit. I also don't want to spoil the story but I also have faced what she did and felt pain and loss. All around it was an excellent novella and my favorite of the set. 

Prom Diaries 
Another great YA reader. I think my daughter will enjoy this one in a few years. I didn't put the clues together until late in the book which was kinda sad since they were all based on magic. It was a cute story though! 

What If Wish 
For me this was the harder of the set to get through. It wasn't a bad book or anything I guess I have never been one of those girls the believed or wished fairies were real. It was an interesting read and a good fit with the other stories.
