Life's a Witch

Life's a Witch, #1

I found Life's a Witch to be lackluster compared to What the Spell. What the Spell focused on a newly self-magically-made nerdy "glamazon" Brooklyn, this book focuses on the "its" clique queen bee herself Hadley. The magical realm clashes with the human world in this follow-up.

I have this strange fascination with seeing stories through the villain's eyes. I was stoked that Life's as Witch focused on the one character who caused so much anguish. However, I couldn't find any redemption in Hadley.

This series is Mean Girls meets Teen Witch. If those things do not interest you, I wouldn't suggest picking this book up.

This witch lives a charmed life…

Hadley’s the envy of every girl—and the desire of every guy. But being at the top of the social pyramid has its drawbacks. Hadley’s always kept her frenemies close and her secrets closer—one big secret in particular. Her key to magically having it all is that she’s an actual witch.

As a descendant of the first woman executed in the Salem Witch Trials, Hadley understands the consequences if her secret gets out. The only ones who know about her powers are members of her coven—other kids and parents who, like Hadley’s own family, have magic in their blood. But there’s no way to cover up an attack that causes every adult in the coven to vanish. All the evidence points to an age-old rival coven as the culprit. Now it’s up to Hadley to lead the young witches against the Parrishables and to rescue their missing parents. At the same time, she’s caught up in her feelings for a mysterious guy named Asher, who has plenty of secrets of his own. With everything at stake, can Hadley trust her magic—and her heart?
