     So I spent most of this book trying to decide between James and Simon. (Team Simon lol) The twist had my head spinning and cursing at my kindle. It went a little slow at times but all around it was a fantastic read and I couldn’t wait to start the second book.

    I really do love this story!! the only thing keeping me from giv

    I really do love this story!! the only thing keeping me from giving it a 5 is that 1. the writing seems a little elementary to me it just didn't seem to really develop 2. to me it felt like Emma acted like a 13 year old instead of 16/17 year old. It also jumped around so much from month to month that I didn't feel ike I really got to know the characters well enough and it didn't go in depth enough to REALLY pull me in all the way. Don't get me wrong I love the idea of the story and did enjoy it, it just wasn't one of those that really pulled me into the characters life. Also, sadly alot of mements just seem cheesy and that's probably because it just jumps around so much and doesn't really go into a lot of detail of moments between the characters. I really can't grasp the relationship between James and Emma because frankly there aren't any lasting moments between them, it's like he came, he declared his love, we kissed, he left. But on repeat. All in all, I will complete the series but mainly because it's a decent story not because it's really pulled me in.

    The Amulet is a great read. It's easy going and well-written.

    The Amulet is a great read. It's easy going and well-written. I was quite surprised how quickly I became invested in the characters. I couldn't put it down. I literally read it in one day because Zitting left me wanting more with each chapter. So glad I didn't have to wait too long for the Talisman!!
