Select Reviews of Squirrel of Magic

Reviews with a Twist
Favorite story: It is hard to choose. I loved all of them. I wished there were more. For the sake of the argument, let’s say I preferred “A Witching Spree”, the first short story of the book. I think it was the funniest one. It narrates the adventures Darya goes through after she receives her familiar, how she has to smuggle the squirrel into Canada, how she has to break into a house, and lets you into her very imaginative and original use of magic.”

Select Reviews of Almost Adept:

Open Book Society
“I had a lot of fun reading this book from beginning to end. It is very fast paced and has surprised me at every turn. When I started reading it, I had no idea that I would enjoy myself so much. The characters are extremely lively and real. You get to know them well…and can’t help but root for them. The magic is really cool and very elaborate. And the whole atmosphere is permeated by a feeling of medieval romance.”

“Almost Adept was a fun, light read… I’d just like to spend more time in this world.”

Book Butterfly Reviews
“What I really enjoyed in this novel was how consistent Eri remained throughout the story. She was strong willed, and stubborn, yes, but she also had vulnerabilities. What made her such an amazing main character is that she didn’t let her insecurities and doubts get in the way of what needed to be done. There was very little room for whining, and even when things got tough, she didn’t lose her cool. This is something we don’t see very often in novels, especially with a female POV… and a teenager at that.”

“Godim had me completely enmeshed in her intricate storyline while keeping me entertained. It was both an intellectually and creatively stimulating read. I loved the twist that the author threw in for magic users. It made me giggle and really made me think. Although this novel had an in-depth storyline, it was also a light-hearted, fun read. It is the best of many worlds.”
