Seriously Shifted by Tina Connolly (3 stars)

No comments
I reviewed Seriously Wicked by Tina Connolly last year. Despite the broom on the cover, it felt more like a contemporary YA novel with a tiny sprinkling of magic. The sequel, Seriously Shifted, shifted gears and brought on a lot more magic and fantastical elements without losing the down-to-earth, "teen finding herself" core.

This book was provided by the publisher for review. Thank you, Tor Teen!
Seriously Shifted by Tina Connolly

Final Rating: 3 stars
Synopsis:
Teenage witch Cam isn’t crazy about the idea of learning magic. She’d rather be no witch than a bad one. But when a trio of her mother’s wicked witch friends decide to wreak havoc in her high school, Cam has no choice but to try to stop them.

Esmerelda is the mean girl of the witches. Valda likes to drop anvils on people’s heads. And Malkin—well, Malkin is just plain terrifying. Their idea of fun is a little game—they each pick a student from Cam’s high school and compete to see who can make their teen the most miserable. But Cam suspects one of the witches may have an ulterior motive…which means someone at school could be in worse danger yet.

Now Cam’s learning invisibility spells, dodging exploding cars, and pondering the ethics of love potions. All while trying to keep her grades up and go on a first date with her crush. If the witches don’t get him first, that is.
Can’t a good witch ever catch a break?

Review:
Seriously Shifted pits good witch-in-training Cam against a wicked witch reunion, and her mom's old college buddies are in town for more than drinks and laughs. After an ill-made wager, with more on the line than she realizes, Cam's in for a week of new secrets, new friends, new spells and new danger.

Merry Christmas, happy holidays and happy three-day weekend to those in the US!

Finals were ROUGH this semester. Thank God for my study buddies keeping me sane and on track. I'm not sure how I did, but we'll find out in January. At least it's done. :)

In other news, I participated in #TBTBSanta (The Broke and the Bookish's amazing Secret Santa project). I sent out my gifts a little while back and was thrilled my Santee liked them! I'll be opening my Secret Santa's box tomorrow.
