Dora's Jinx Reviews
Book Review originally published here: http://www.iheartreading.net/book-tou...In Dora’s Jinx, Dora figures she might’ve been invisible, considering no one else but her family even notices she exists. But on her sixteenth birthday, as if being ignored by just about everyohne isn’t bad enough, she meets a talking cat who tells her she’s a witch. Goodbye normal life, forever. As if she’s not on a rollercoaster of bad luck already, the other witches’ familiars go missing, and Dora’s magic is the only thing that can save down from destruction. But if Dora wants to save the day, she’ll have to accept herself for who she is.A lovely, fun tale of a girl looking for her true self, and coming to terms who she really is. I loved the magical elements, and how it combined the more traditional view on witches from fairytales and folklore with modern elements. A quick read, too, and fast-paced. Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys YA Fantasy.
The book revolves around Dora, a girl hell bent on not being a witch but has no say in it whatsoever. You don’t choose to be a witch. You either are or you’re not. The way a girl finds out if they are a witch or not is by having a familiar, a cat, who pops into your life before you turn 16.This story is way below what I’d choose for myself because it is by far a book for teens. My tastes are more…adult. I tend to shy away from YA also, but I will read them from time to time. With that said, the story itself is good. My first thought was that it reminded me of the tv show “Sabrina the teenage witch,” but thankfully the book did not resemble that tv show other than containing a witch and talking cat. So I got over the comparison fairly quickly. The plot was a little slow and Dora was super insecure, but I think that was the point. You’re taken on a journey of self-discovery and growth. This is a cute book that can be enjoyed by a reader of any age. I liked that the supernatural people remained one kind, meaning witches, but there was a variety of supernatural animals. The writing was well done, as was the editing. I received this book from the author and Romance Authors that Rock, in exchange for an honest review. This story gets (5) hearts from me.
It was so good I read it twice, and am considering going back for thirds!This is a very fun YA Modern Fantasy with a unique take on magic and cats. I love it!Here's hoping there's a sequel!
So this is totally fun. A young witch and her talking cat, a bunch of really dubious fashion choices and excellent choices in pancake eating. I was recommended this by a friend (who maaaaay have a dedication in it...), but it's easy going YA with the sort of humour that works well in this genre. I really like Dora's teenage neurosis; it feels very real without being irritating. And she has an interesting power - she's a 'violent' witch, which is an unusual choice for a female heroine, and leads to a few quite challenging moments (teenage girl having to punch her best friend sounds like it could get super unpleasant, really fast, but is actually handled rather well). I also rather like the fact that she has a cat familiar, but doesn't really like cats. Yeah, those guys are jerks - just ask my two...
