From Bad to Cursed by: Lana Harper

This was a fun, cute read everyone! I haven’t read the author’s previous work but when her next book comes out, I’ll probably snatch it up.

From Bad t cursed is the story of a witch who practices necromantic magic and another who practices green magic. Literally green, plants y’all, plants.

During a ceremony, another witch is attacked with a spell that kills her magic, burns her hands and seals her magic away. And no one knows who did it.

Worst of all? The spell is the kind that our MC’s family is involved in so of course, they’re the obvious culprits.

I actually really liked this book. It’s an interracial romance. She’s white, he’s Black. And there’s no racism. No descriptions of him being likened to food. It was just descriptions of him being attractive. Of his locs and his skin. And none of it was gross.

I never know what to expect when it comes to romances but this? I liked it. Thistle Grove feels fun. I like the way the magic works. I like the setup of the town and the families.

All of that gets an A.

The only thing I’ll take points off for was the pacing of the ending, especially because the pacing of the rest of the story was really solid. It was just very rushed and wrapped up very quickly. And that was a bit of a switch up.

Other than that, it gets a four (4) out of five (5) stars from me and I’ll happily recommend it to people.

I received this eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to them and the publisher.
