Book Review: Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She's Dead: Christiana Miller
A couple of weeks ago I got this ebook as a free download and it's my favourite Kindle freebie so far! This is a great little ebook with some really fun, believable characters. It is written in first person with Mara as the narrator. Mara and her best friend Gus are both witches living in LA and when a spell goes wrong Mara soon finds her life spiralling out of control.
I loved both Mara and Gus; and thought Paul made a good romantic interest. It is well written and I thought the pace perfect...in fact my only niggle is the italicised 'if only I knew' paragraphs which crop up at the end of the early chapters as if the author is worried the reader may lose interest without reminding them that things are going to get scarey! I just didn't need these as I was interested enough without them, and found they irritated me so I ended up just skipping them. I loved the story's natural build up and pacey ending. I will definitely be looking out for a sequel to add to my 2012 reading sequels challenge!
