Hey all, Dani here.

Welcome to a new recurring segment here on my blog: Signal Boost. My hope is that each Friday I’ll share with you a book/author, TV show, movie, board game, video game, etc that I think people should check out. If you’d like to join me in boosting the signal on some awesome or geeky things you love, then please do. And share your book and geeky love with everyone else.

And if you don’t know, I’ll just say it now…yes, I got the idea for this segment from Geek & Sundry. They have a show on their channel called Signal Boost, where you get a new host every four episodes and in each episode the host shares 3 awesome geeky things they think you should know about. Nine episodes have aired and if you want to check it out, you can do so here.

Book Review: Witches of Coolersville

Witches of Coolersville

Read from May 20 to 21, 2016

Disclaimer: I’m a beta reader  for Witches of Coolersville and this is a self-published book.

So besides the few grammar errors that Carey has probably fixed since I’ve read this book, I think the overall story has a few kinks that she also probably can work out before too long. Again, this stuff happens with self-published books. The quality compared to other self-published books is good.

However, what I can say for the book is that it is a very nice contemporary story with a few magical elements and a lot of cute, witty dialogue that surprised me. It focuses on family, work, and relationships. I especially liked how the MC was also a book lover and was going to college for writing (I could totally relate!). There are also some witches and demons in the story, but I think they are going to be more relevant in the next instalments of the series.

I’m so happy Carey Starkey has finally published her first book! I hope she keeps at it and always finds ways to improve.

I gave Witches of Coolerville a 3/5 stars. My rating system is down below:

Thanks for reading,

  • My rating system stands: 5/5 is a knock out of the park; this book deserves to be read by everyone. 4/5 is, “I really liked it,” but it did have a couple of kinks. 3/5 is, “I believe there are a lot of people who would enjoy this book, but for one reason or another, it didn’t sit well with me.” 2/5 is, “I really didn’t enjoy it and I’m not going to recommend it.” 1/5 is, “no one read this – throw it in a lake.”
