Book Spotlight: Lia and Beckett’s Abracadabra by Amy Noelle Parks

Welcome to book spotlight where instead of giving you another book review, I’m just going to talk about books I’ve read recently that I enjoyed. Prepare yourself for the fangirl gushing.

I am on a roll with requesting and reviewing YA contemporary books lately and I have no idea why. But Lia and Beckett’s Abracadabra by Amy Noelle Parks is so much fun. It’s the perfect fluffy contemporary romance to read during the summer. I love the focus on magic and Lia wanting to be a magician and to save her family’s legacy, and I love Beckett and all the drama of the Blackwell boys.

I appreciate how in-depth the magic side of things was. And I like how the between Lia and Beckett relationship played out. I don’t see a lot of YA books with characters that decide to wait before diving head first into a relationship or kissing or more just because they like each other. It made for an interesting dynamic between the two and gave the book some great romantic tension.

I also love the sister relationship and all the shenanigans they get up to getting revenge on Elliott. It was so bad but so fun at the same time. Lia is a fun protagonist and I like that she continually surprises people by what she does and likes.

There is a lot of teen drama in this book. I expect that in most YA books, but some of it felt a little over the top in this one. Because the rest of the story was so darn cute and full of such fun magic, I could let it slide. Plus, with the way everything ends in the final show, it’s practically perfect.

~Thank you to the publisher for providing an early digital copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.~
