Never underestimate the power of a determined witch.

Letum Wood is a forest of fog and deadfall, home to the quietly famous Miss Mabel’s School for Girls, a place where young witches learn the art of magic.

Sixteen-year-old Bianca Monroe has inherited a deadly curse. Determined to break free before it kills her, she enrolls in the respected school to confront the cunning witch who cast the curse: Miss Mabel.

Bianca finds herself faced with dark magic she didn’t expect, with lessons more dangerous than she could have ever imagined. Will Bianca have the courage to save herself from the curse, or will Miss Mabel’s sinister plan be too powerful?

Miss Mabel’s School for Girls is the first novel in The Network Series, an exciting new fantasy collection. A gripping tale about the struggle to survive, it will take you to a new place and time, one you’ll never want to leave.

mythoughts

I don’t read that many YA Fantasy books but when I do, I fall for the book, hard. And that’s exactly what happened to me after reading this Miss Mabel’s School for Girls.

Freebie Friday Special Edition: Adrian Lessons by L.A. Rose

freebie friday 1

Hi and welcome to a special edition of Freebie Friday, sponsored by L.A. Rose, author of Adrian Lessons.

Adrian Lessons is a new adult romance book and I gotta admit, I am SO in love with the book. Just yesterday I posted a 4-star review of Adrian Lessons, click here to read it.

Here’s the cover and the blurb of the book:

adrian lessons books keep me sane

If there’s one thing Cleo Reynolds knows, it’s that she’s not into Adrian King.

The son of a model with the looks to prove it, the experienced author of her school newspaper’s sex advice column, the cocky playboy with a hint of darkness. That Adrian King.

Nope. Nuh-uh. No way.

The problem is, he’s very into her.

After accidentally flashing him, and slightly-less-accidentally-but-still-totally-unintentionally making out with him in front of the whole class, she expects to be called crazy. Instead, he asks her out.

Cleo’s determined not to end up as another notch on his bedpost. Except she hasn’t done…you know…it in a while. (Read: ever.) And as a girl who pays her tuition by writing all the sex scenes in her roommate’s bestselling romance series, the lack of inspiration has served up a fat slice of writer’s block.

Until her roommate proposes that Cleo and Adrian act out all the steamy scenes in her book.

It’s just research. No feelings involved.

Nope. Nuh-uh.

No way.

It’s been a long time since the last time I read a steamy romance novel. At first I was skeptical of Adrian Lessons, I feel like I have already read and seen every kind of contemporary romance out there, but Adrian Lessons surprised me in the best ways.
