Spellbound by Julia Goldhirsh was a pleasant surprised. I got a free digital copy of it in return for a review (this does not alter my judgement, I promise) and I don’t regret it at all.

Spellbound is a book about a girl named Rose that was cursed to be trapped in a greenhouse for her whole life. Until she felt that she couldn’t stay there anymore and escaped (or should I say tried). This is when she met a young man, Gabriel, that is bound on helping her, no matter what.

There are two main themes in this book, that being good versus evil nymphs and curses. Spellbound was actually the first book I read that had nymphs in (excluding the Persy Jackson series) and I actually liked it a lot.

I really liked the main character too as she reminded me of myself. She is a bit of an introvert, she’s rude (but as a joke) and also nice and easy to get along with and that is probably why there is some romance cooking up between her and Gabriel that just thickens the plot a little.

This book was really easy to read as it takes a hold of your interest in the first few pages. In my opinion it would make a great quick read for the weekend, that’s if you don’t read it all in one day like me (haha I have an unquenchable thirst for books, does that make me a book vampire?).

What I liked most about this book was how well the writer interpreted Rose’s imprisonment by the way Rose was losing her mind and her parents only treated her worse over time.

What I disliked most about this book was how short the plot was. I felt that it all just moved a bit too fast at the end and that there could have been written a bit more and also in a little more detail. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t written badly, I personally would just have liked to have more detail.

I recommend this book to any fantasy readers. You will not be disappointed as it’s a good read. I do however not recommend this to people who don’t like fantasy (we will pray for you, I’m just kidding LOL).

I rate Spellbound by Julia Goldhirsh 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Do yourself a favor and go read this book. I know a lot of you would just love it! It’s really short so it’s perfect if you have a busy life.

I hope I convinced you to read this book and if I did that you would enjoy it as much as I did. Feel free to leave a comment below and tell me what you though of the review and if you have any questions.
