One stormy Irish summer night, Olive and her best friend, Rose, begin to lose things. It starts with simple items like hairclips and jewelry, but soon it's clear that Rose has lost something much bigger, something she won't talk about, and Olive thinks her best friend is slipping away.

Then seductive diary pages written by a girl named Laurel begin to appear all over town. And Olive meets three mysterious strangers: Ivy, Hazel, and her twin brother, Rowan, secretly squatting in an abandoned housing estate. The trio are wild and alluring, but they seem lost too—and like Rose, they're holding tight to painful secrets.When they discover the spellbook, it changes everything. Damp, tattered and ancient, it's full of hand-inked charms to conjure back things that have been lost. And it just might be their chance to find what they each need to set everything back to rights.Unless it's leading them toward things that were never meant to be found...
Enchanting and seductive, Spellbook of the Lost and Found will surely keep you on the edge of your seat!

Firstly, can we discuss that cover?! Every single aspect of it is so stunning and inviting. It is just screaming "READ ME!". I'll admit it, when I saw this August release, it was the cover that drew me in and it was the cover that made me want to have it immediately. Then I read the premise and it just made me want it even more. I had to have it. In my hands. Now!

Spellbook of the Lost and Found is a decent sized book, coming in at 368 pages, it's not necessarily a light read, but you will devour it. It will consume you and whisk you away because you just simply need to keep reading. It will cast you under its spell and twine its firm grasp around you. You'll fly through the pages, fighting the need to know how this story unfolds, and if like me, you'll likely eat this book up in one sitting!

Fowley-Doyle does a miraculous job at painting a picturesque setting. Plucking you up and placing you gently in the vivid world of these 6 teenagers in Ireland. Another giant feat the author took on was delivering the story in the perspective of not one, not two, not three, but SIX points of view and she did so flawlessly! We had the pleasure of reading from the POV's of all characters and their colourful personalities and backstories. It was truly a delicious treat!

The story is dark and ominous. I was continuously left feeling like something was lurking around the corner, waiting to jump out. It made for a very lively and theatrical reading experience!

Fowley-Doyle's writing style was impeccable. She delivers the tale in an almost poet and lyrical manner. Making the words just fall delicately off of the pages and into your imagination. She's made me an instant fan! I cannot wait to pick up her debut novel, The Accident Season and I eagerly await her future work!

If you're looking for a dark and magical tale, something that is as equally haunting as it is beautiful than Spellbook of the Lost and Found is the book for you!

  1. The organization, focusing on rolex replica uk with regard to both women and men. Rolex might assure the actual specialized, visual as well as practical features, combined with the replica watches as well as after-sales support. Through 1947 onwards, annually following the recognized release associated with Tudor, the actual protect progressively vanished in the logo design, henceforth composed of just the hublot replica sale title and also the flower. Within 1948, the very first ads focused on fake rolex sale had been released. The actual manufacturer had been obviously related to Rolex, each within the textual content as well as within the logo design, as the duplicate stressed the actual appearance, chronometric accuracy, as well as waterproofness associated with rolex replica uk. This really is just about all really fascinating for all those fascinated with the actual histories associated with view manufacturers, however Wilsdorf's causes of creating another manufacturer together with replica watches sale tend to be exactly what genuinely issue as well as exactly what impact the way the 2 manufacturers are situated these days, a few seventy many years later on.
