OMG... Am I A Witch?!
OMG... Am I A Witch?! - Talia Aikens-Nun... OMG... Am I A Witch?! - Talia Aikens-Nunez Book: OMG… Am I a Witch?

My Rating: 5 Stars

This is a new to me Author.
What an Adorable book!

In this book we have April a young girl who has had enough of her brothers bullying towards her. One day she finds a spell on the internet and recites the words turning him into a fluffy little dog. She feels horrible though after it has been done and with the help of her friends she tries her best to find the spell to change him back.

I think this is a very cute book for kids perhaps age 7 and up. They can learn about bullying, as well as being more caring to their siblings. To me that is the moral of this story. It is not a creepy scary book so children will enjoy it.

Very well written and I would definitely recommend it. I am even going to suggest it to my older daughters to get it for my grandsons.

I was gifted a copy of this book for my honest review

Then, there are the magic as a weapon divas: Kiss of a Demon King and Soul Kissed (Shadow Kissed).


My very favorite though is the Dagmar "The Beast" in What a Dragon Should Know, she uses her brain and sometimes her war dog.

An onna-bugeisha, one of the female warriors of the upper social classes in feudal Japan. Would she make a great heroine in a Romance Novel?

OMG... Am I A Witch?!
OMG... Am I A Witch?! - Talia Aikens-Nunez,Alicja Ignaczak This is a cute children's book about a girl who turned her older and annoying brother into a dog. She finds she has powers and the adventure is all about getting her brother turned back into his annoying self. The book is aimed at 8-12 year olds.

I had my eye out for books I thought my little cousin might enjoy. She really loves reading and I thought the premise of the book was cute. She doesn't have an older brother but a younger sister but I think she could still identify with the main character.

The book itself has a bit of a problem with pacing. The dialog keeps going back over the same thing, but as a kid, I think they might like that. It is also short so there is no mention as to how April got her powers or why. She also doesn't really grow from the experience but she does have a conscience and feels bad about what happened.

One of the things I really did love about this book are the tiny illustrations that accompany each chapter. I think that was probably my favorite part of the book. I just had to make a mention of them.

I recommend this book to young grade school kids. I think they would get a kick out of a kid who suddenly finds herself with magical powers.

OMG... Am I A Witch?!
OMG... Am I A Witch?! - Talia Aikens-Nunez,Alicja Ignaczak OMG...Am I a Witch? is a really cute middle grade story. One day on the bus, April's annoying older brother pushes her too far and she turns him into a dog using a spell she read off the Internet. She enlists her friends to help her try to reverse the spell before her parents find out Austin is now a dog.

One of the things that I liked about the book was how April begins to realize that even though her brother annoys her, he does care about her. He has defended her before and taken care of her when she was sick. I think that is a great message to send. The only thing I wish the book had was an explanation as to why April suddenly has powers. I felt like that wasn't explored enough. I'm not sure if this is going to be a series or not. If so, maybe a second book could explain her powers.

The book is short and is sprinkled with adorable illustrations. I think girls will fall in love with Austin is a puppy. He was very cute! This book would be perfect for any reader 4th grade and up. I know my 10 year old daughter would probably enjoy this book.

Tale of Two Dragons Review
A Tale Of Two Dragons - G.A. Aiken

Braith of the Darkness likes going through life unnoticed. Not an easy task for a She-dragon of royal descent. But the evil plots of her father are turning her quiet, boring life upside down, and she has now become the enemy of the most vicious queen her kind has ever known. But for once, Braith won't have to fight alone. Not when the warrior dragon of her dreams is willing to risk everything to save her neck.

Addolgar the Cheerful wishes he could say he’s helping the pretty royal strictly for honorable reasons - but he'd be lying. It’s not his fault, though! He didn't tell Braith of the Darkness to have the most delicious tail he’s ever seen! Yet before Addolgar can get his very strong claws on that tail, heads are going to roll. Just hopefully not theirs...




My favorite book in this series is What A Dragon Should Know  and while this short story is far from the quality of that simply fantastic book, it is still a very good time. 


We have a kick ass heroine dragoness coming into her own,  clueless but equal awesome hero dragon, loads of dragon culture, fights, matriarchies, reunions, and all the other good stuff we like from this series. 


The romance doesn't burn so bright in this one but its believable and engaging. 


I had a good time and I think most fans of the series will as well.
