Mandi Kaye @ Never Too Fond of Books

Louisa May Alcott may as well have been writing about me when she wrote "She is too fond of books and it has turned her brain!" But I am a staunch believer that there is no such thing.

The Juliet Spell

The Juliet Spell - Douglas Rees

The Juliet Spell was an entertaining, light piece of fluff reading. The general premise of the story – girl desperately wants to be Juliet in her school’s production of Romeo & Juliet so she casts a spell to make it happen and hilarity ensues when Will Shakespeare’s brother travels through time and ends up in girl’s kitchen – has potential. Unfortunately, I don’t believe Douglas Rees met that potential. There were times throughout the story where I literally had to stop reading because I found it to be absolutely ridiculous. On the plus side, it really made me want to watch William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet.


I give The Juliet Spell three out of five stars for being generally entertaining.
