This is the best of both worlds, the world of mystery and the world of magic. It was well written and surprised me in that it wasn’t totally predictable. Witty, sad, entertaining and feels very real in a way books about magic rarely do, Magic for Liars wants you to care, to understand and to enjoy.The author makes the humanity of the characters the central focus and it pays off well. 4 stars from me!

Where do you see yourself in five years? It’s a pretty common question asked in interviews or even dates. What happens when you, for a brief moment, see where you are in five years and it’s no where you’d imagined and planned you’d be? I liked the concept of the book and it had me hooked after the dream because i wanted to know where it would all lead. I loved the bond between friends in this book and found that to be the heart of this story. This book has some twists and turns and will keep you guessing until the end, it's definately not a straight-forward love story.

An Arthurian story with female lead? Yes, please! I loved the description of this book. Cursed is a really reimagined telling of the story of Arthur and Merlin. It focuses on the story of Nimue,and her quest to fulfill her mother's dying request against all odds. Merlin is this flawed man who’s hundreds of years old, thanks in part to his magic. Arthur hasn’t really become the hero yet, but you see glimpses of his potential through the story. And then there are all of these really fascinating minor characters in the story, too. With some of them, as their names get revealed, it makes so much sense how they will fit into the story.

This appears to be the first of several books, but it was also an okay standalone read. The story details gave life and believability to the plotline and the characters.

There’s a lot that I enjoyed about this book. The author is a clever writer and the first half of the book is my favorite. I think she sets up the story really well and her husband’s running fairy tale bedtime stories are well-used. Once we know that Poppy’s world is falling apart, I think the author runs into a bit more trouble. The trip to Thailand is a bit rough, though still plays an important role. It’s not a perfect world, even in Seattle, and I guess the moral of the story is we don’t know the answers in advance.

This book makes you feel good reading it. The way the author wove the timeline and characters was just perfect. I found it enchanting, and a perfect story to curl up in the winter and fall into. I don't want to give any of it away, but if you are a fan of good characters and a little magic this book is a sure thing.
