    "I love love love young adult supernatural novels, and I'm always excited to pick up a new one from a new author. The Secret Life of a Witch was an okay read, but it didn't really stand out from the others I read from 2016. Read it if it seems interesting to you, it's not a waste of time, but there are better choices out there."

    "I'm not a young adult so this didn't appeal to me. Geared towards young teens not people my age."
