Popular Ebook The Best Kind of Magic This is an eARC, all opinions are my own.DNF @ 25%I don't like to not finish ARC's. I feel rude. I feel unworthy. However, I couldn't deal with this one. I could see what the author was going for and I was so excited for witches. 14 year old me desperately wanted to read anything with a witch in it. I loved the idea. Hell, I wanted to be a witch. Unfortunately, I am not and double unfortunately this book was falling super flat for me. The protagonist, who's name I wouldn't be able to remember if she hadn't shared it with me, is so boring. She truly was the most annoying character. I swear, she complained about almost everything. I know, sounds very similar to myself. Unfortunately, I don't want to read about myself with the lack of bitchy flare (something I love about myself). It felt incredibly targeted for a younger audience, and I know I would have loved this six years ago. I overall had a general idea of where the story was going, but I just wasn't interested in the slightest. I was 25% in and couldn't care about a single character, plot point, or useless conversation. I may come back to this on release day, to see if my opinions have changed. But, for now, its a no from me.
