So here I am, the day before my review is supposed to go up for the blog tour trying to write my review.  I think I read this book over a month ago now, but I have put off writing this review.  Even though I knew I had to write it since I promised it for this tour.  But I couldn't.  I am not even sure I can now....but I must as I am running out of time.

Are you wondering why I didn't want to write this review?  Are you afraid it is because I hated the book?  What could possibly keep me from wanting to write this review aside from being a huge procrastinator?

Well, aside from the procrastination is because I don't have the words to describe this book for you.  Not really anyways.

No it isn't because I hated it.

It is because I loved it.  It is because I devoured it.  It is because I want the rest of the series to be out so I can read the whole story up and keep my thoughts, opinions, and memories of reading it happily bottled up inside me.

That is right.  I loved this book so much that I don't really want to share it with you, but I will.  It is only fair after all.

What is Spells & Sorcery about?  It is about Lexie.  A girl who is told the night before her birthday that she is a witch and that her powers are going to come to her at midnight.

That wouldn't throw anyone for a loop.  Especially not a teenager.  It isn't like they are already wondering about themselves enough as it is, but then to add magic to the mix...and she didn't even know magic existed!  Yeah.  I aside from getting magic myself, I don't envy Lexie whatsoever.

Lexie discovers quickly that no one really is able to help her.  Is it because they don't want to? Or because they can't?  And everyone assumes she should be able to control her magic without any practice and then get mad at her whenever she uses it accidentally or when her magic goes BOOM.

This is a story about self discovery for Lexie.  About herself and about her family.

It is such a wonderfully crafted story.  The world, which is mixed in with the world as we know it, is very wonderfully crafted.  If there really is a hidden magic world, I am very upset that I am not apart of it!

One thing that you can really tell from reading this book is that S. Usher Evans really likes Harry Potter.  You can see the influence all over be it jokes or references.  It fed my Harry Potter loving heart!

So read it.  You know you want to.  You won't regret it!
