Book Tour: Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz + Giveaways

Title: Spellbound
Cara Lynn Shultz
Release Date: June 28, 2011
Publisher: HarlequinTEEN
Pages: 384
Source: NetGalley

Synopsis (via Goodreads): What's a girl to do when meeting The One means she's cursed to die a horrible death?
Life hasn't been easy on sixteen-year-old Emma Conner, so a new start in New York may be just the change she needs. But the posh Upper East Side prep school she has to attend? Not so much. Friendly faces are few and far between, except for one that she's irresistibly drawn to—Brendan Salinger, the guy with the rock-star good looks and the richest kid in school, who might just be her very own white knight.
But even when Brendan inexplicably turns cold, Emma can't stop staring. Ever since she laid eyes on him, strange things have been happening. Streetlamps go out wherever she walks, and Emma's been having the oddest dreams: visions of herself in past lives—visions that warn her to stay away from Brendan. Or else.

Roshini's Review:

Spellbound has left me gasping for more from Cara Lynn Shultz! She has proven that her writing is truly magical just like the character herself in the book.

If you’re looking for an incredible read, I would recommend this book to all of you any day! It has the right amount of everything! Romance, action, magic, and everything else in between.

When I first heard about the book, I didn’t know what to expect. It had a nice cover and the title had a nice ring to it, but what about the story? All my doubts were erased the second I started the book! The book was a coaster that took me zipping through the pages in loopdy-doops and high speeds. Spellbound showed me how powerful true love was. Two lovers, resurrected, only to find that they will die if they fall in love again.

The characters in the books were something else. Cara put so much detail into them that you could probably conjure a picture perfect image of them with her descriptions! Emma’s determination and
perseverance to stay with her love is admirable. I fell in love along with the heroine. Let’s just say I’m….captivated with Brendan!

The novel itself is wonderful! It revolves around a unique theme that is hard not to forget. I’m DIEING to get my hands on another book by Cara!

Cover Thoughts:

I love the cover! The bridge with who I’m guessing is Emma near it adds immeasurable beauty to it. I also love the font of the title.
