Frogs & French KissesWelcome to my 300th book review It felt like going from 100 to 200 reviews took no time at all, but finally getting to 300 has felt like a looong time coming In reality the time between both of those was 16 months.I didn t rate this second book as highly as the first one in this series because I couldn t think of anything I didn t like in the first book, whereas the same cannot be said for this one I had some problems with some characters in this book, as well as the content Miri Was Pre Welcome to my 300th book review It felt like going from 100 to 200 reviews took no time at all, but finally getting to 300 has felt like a looong time coming In reality the time between both of those was 16 months.I didn t rate this second book as highly as the first one in this series because I couldn t think of anything I didn t like in the first book, whereas the same cannot be said for this one I had some problems with some characters in this book, as well as the content Miri Was Pretty annoying Always trying to save the world and all Like, please, calm down Their mom was kind of annoying too, but Miri really stole the show Both of them just went way too extreme with their magic Content wise, I guess I didn t care about it as much The whole thing was very focused on Rachel and her view spoiler fake boyfriend Will hide spoiler , and on the Prom I didn t hate anything that happened, I just didn t feel all that invested in any of it view spoiler Even though I 100% knew someone was going to save the auction, I was still extremely pumped and almost teared up I am confused about this too when Jennifer bought the bag for 2000, specifically because it was her who did it I was so proud of my girl Jennifer for saving the day That was the best part of the book for me.Also, while we re here in this spoiler tag, let me say a few words on the romance Rachel and I were very much on the same page here Will is a great guy, we want to like him, but in the end our affections remain with Raf Honestly though, since we don t actually know all that much about Raf, I m pretty sure the only reason I like himis because he has a cool name Rafael Exotic Love it Don t give me any weird looks, because honestly that s probably all Rachel is riding on as well I mean, sure, he s nice or whatever, but that s literally nothing We don t really know him at all Which From a literary and critical standpoint I should mind But I don t Because he has a cool name Okay, now I think I deserve your disapproving looks.And, one last thing I ll be surprised if Rachel actually got her powers at the end of this book From what I remember of book 4, it seemed like she was still super new to her powers So if she really did just awaken them, I wonder how small the time frame for the next book must be for her to really not learn much during it I m guessing that the next book must be during camp, which lasts what, 2 weeks If so then I guess it makes sense that she won t be able to have any witch lessons during that time so she ll remain pretty unknowledgable In that case I m excited to see what happens during camp and what she does with her new powers Nolove spells, please hide spoiler I still ended up having a pretty good time listening to this book, as is reflected in my rating I ve noticed that a lot of people s biggest problem with this series is that they don t like Rachel, because they think she s a huge asshole and they don t enjoy reading from her perspective I on the other hand have no problems with Rachel, and actually like her The first reason I like her is because she s different So so SO many books have some terribly average goodie goodie Mary Sue as the main character who would never even dream of hurting a fly Talk about BORING Basically every single book I read has this girl as the main character, and I m so over it Rachel s character is usually reserved for either the sidekick best friend, or the villain So seeing her actually front a series is a breath of fresh air I can t get enough of The second reason I like Rachel is because she reminds me a lot of myself, and reading a character like me in a book not only feels validating, but also makes her feel super real That s why I don t mind when she s a jerk, because I totally understand why and could see myself acting the same way in the same situations Hm I ve always taken a liking to asshole characters in books, I guess this is probably why They re therealistic characters who have other motivations besides just blindly doing what s good.I never talked about the audiobook in my first review, so I ll say it here The audiobook is great Ariadne Meyers is a great actress who really brings emotion and life into the character s lines The only problem was that listening to it on the loud train was really painful because I had to turn the volume up in order to hear, but every time Miri spoke it busted my eardrums because it s so high pitched Usually actors actresses don t yell in audiobooks which ends up sounding really awkward when the actor actress says They yelled except they don t actually yell the line Well, I kind of see why now Ariadne yelled the lines that were supposed to be yelled, and they killed me I really recommend these audiobooks to be listened to in a quiet environment, because the emotive ness is really great, but otherwise maybe hold off Please

review From the New York Times bestselling author of the Whatever After series, the sequel to Bras Broomsticks and the second book in the hilariously bewitching Magic in Manhattan series Rachel has finally come to terms with the outrageously unfair fact that her younger sister, Miri, has inherited magical powers from their mom But now the whole witchcraft thing is spiraling out of control Mom is a magicaholic, Miri s on a Save the World kick, and the one teeny tiny love spell that Rachel begged for has gone embarrassingly, horribly wrongSuddenly, the fate of everything is in Rachel s handsHer

beyond those of her sister and her mother due to the fact she is the only normal human being in the family Having recently broken up with her boyfriend or kind of boyfriend , Raf, she asks Miri to plant a love spell on him Miri at first strongly refuses, but after Rachel undergoes some horrible abuse at the hands of some bullying A list girls at After reading the first book in this series I was hooked and wanted to knowabout what happens in Frogs and French Kisses Rachel s problems go beyond those of her sister and her mother due to the fact she is the only normal human being in the family Having recently broken up with her boyfriend or kind of boyfriend , Raf, she asks Miri to plant a love spell on him Miri at first strongly refuses, but after Rachel undergoes some horrible abuse at the hands of some bullying A list girls at school all because of her Freshman Fashion show failure , she relents But the spell backfires, and the love spell lands instead on Raf s older andhandsome brother Will who by the way is the Senior President of their school In the begining Will freaks Rachel out with his Stalking and that is how she finds out that the spell back fired Rachel s willing to let the spell wear off, as it will naturally, until Will asks her to prom Rachel wants to improve her status, and prove to those mean girls that she is at the top Another part of Rachel s reasoning to going out with Will is to make Raf jealous Raf has already moved on to Rachel s ultamate enemy, and doesn t show a sign of jealousy Rachel s life at home on the other hand invloves a lot of time with out her mother Why you might ask Well, becasue her mom has started to date again which means that he moms pact to never use magic has been broken and now she is a crazed witch Miri becomes sad with the thought of never seeing her mother and just wants Rachel around Rachel made a promise to Miri, since Miri casted the spell on Will and the girls who where bullying Rachel, that in return Rachel would help Miri slove world peace In the book they spend quite some time at their fathers house with his new wife who they have suddenly grown a liking for Since Rachels mom is off making herself look like a barbie doll and dating all of Manhattan, Rachel is the new boss in town In the end Rachel decided to not go to prom with Will, becasue she knows that she didn t deserve it and in the end Will goes with the real girl of his dreams Raf goes with Rachels enemy, and just when Rachel thought this night couldn t get better Rachel dicovers she is also a witch I didn t like this as much as the first book for the simple fact that Rachel s story didn t really progress at all I ll continue on to books 3 and 4 eventually but not anytime soon On the plus side, I really enjoy this authors writing style.Side note not sure where the titles come from Book 1 didn t have anything to do with a Bra storyline and this one with Frogs was the same Very strange titling. Rachel is still annoying, but seems to be learning at least until the ending The book got a bit preachy and heavy handed with the with great power comes great responsibility idea The reference to Spiderman in the book reminded me of the quote Anyway, stuff happens, things get messed up,stuff happens and things get fixedor less Pretty standard stuff for one of these books. this one was even better than the first oneso yes, M I am so gonna read the rest of the series honestly a surprisingly fun read I don t want to keep listening to this series, the narrartor is getting too annoying for me. YOU GUYS SHOULD READ THIS BOOKNo, really You should I m damn serious at this moment The ending was surprising.Miri was annoying, I mean, I understand you want to be good and save the world everyone would want to do good for the world when they have magical powers right But she didthan enough magic, oblivious of the fact that it can go hazardous and catastrophic But it doesn t really matter, because she s not the protagonist The sequel starts when Rachel and Miri try to levitate on YOU GUYS SHOULD READ THIS BOOKNo, really You should I m damn serious at this moment The ending was surprising.Miri was annoying, I mean, I understand you want to be good and save the world everyone would want to do good for the world when they have magical powers right But she didthan enough magic, oblivious of the fact that it can go hazardous and catastrophic But it doesn t really matter, because she s not the protagonist The sequel starts when Rachel and Miri try to levitate on air by the help of a broomstick.The result It wasn t so pleasing For me, Rachel is like Alex Russo She gets into trouble all the time, somehow manages to fix it, cares for the people she loves and acts mature even though her maturity is pretty much slim to none all along It s intriguing to watch someone getting into trouble like that I know, I sound like a sinisterous savage demon right now but it s fun to watch fictional characters getting into troubles but we all have to agree that it s entertaining The other characters were awesome Even though, there was the JKF mean girls version but I guess we all have been acquainted with those sort of people I wish I could writebut it would spoil the fun Recommendation 11 years and above Happy reading everyone This one was deeper than the first one was It was just as fun and quirky and silly, but it dealt with addiction in a different way They are addicted to magic, and their lives start spiraling It s fun at first, but slowly, things start changing There s no alcohol, no drugs But it was effective.Also, Rachel grew so much as a character in this one It started off with her just as superficial as before, but she starts to understand things, and not let things get to her, and I was just so proud This one was deeper than the first one was It was just as fun and quirky and silly, but it dealt with addiction in a different way They are addicted to magic, and their lives start spiraling It s fun at first, but slowly, things start changing There s no alcohol, no drugs But it was effective.Also, Rachel grew so much as a character in this one It started off with her just as superficial as before, but she starts to understand things, and not let things get to her, and I was just so proud of her by the end I don t know the last time I felt pride for a fictional character that I didn t create , and it was a wonderful feeling to close a book with.I m really looking forward to the next book in the series Rachel can only get better from here
