The Graces by Laure Eve

Okay, before I even get into the story, I have to tell you that this book is visually stunning. It's gorgeous! The book wasn't printed in black, it was printed in dark blue. The cover is amazing, but what lies under the dust jacket is equally as gorgeous. It's one gorgeous book.

The Graces is about a family of witches. There is a new girl in school who wants to be part of their family, who wants to be like them.

I really don't want to go too much more into the story because I don't want to give anything away, but it's one of those finding yourself type of stories.

It's really darn good. I really liked it. It was different, and strange, and hauntingly interesting.

The Graces deals with a lot of feelings that we all at one time or another have experienced ourselves. It's a book that connects to the reader no matter what else is happening in the story.

I would have liked a little more magic but, that's just my preference. If you're going to write about witches, the witchier the better is what I say! This book didn't disappoint, but I'm not sure I could ever have enough!

At one point I read something that said people were comparing this to Twilight, and I don't agree at all. Fine, maybe I can see some of the similarities, but its not like that at all. Seriously.

Really looking forward to more, and I'm hoping this is the first in a long series.

Now, excuse me while I go watch The Craft....

Recommendation: This one is for the lovers of a good story, for the lovers of books about finding yourself, growing up, and being who you are. I recommend this book for sure.
