Blog Tour: Jinxed by Amy McCulloch

Jinxed Amy McCulloch

Jinxed has fast become one of my favourite books of the year! Having read and loved The Potion Diaries, I was really excited to read Amy's next venture which was Jinxed and dare I say it but I think it was even better. There's also a chance to win a copy, so keep reading!


review



Those of you who remember The Northern Lights book or more recently known as The Golden Compass by Phillip Pullman need to read Jinxed. When students reach a certain age, it's time to ditch their phone and get their very own baku. A baku is so much better than a phone, they are a companion, they can hook up to you to know your likes, dislikes, music playlist, all your favourite contacts and more. Lacey has been studying hard to get into Profectus to become a Companioneer so that she can help create the bakus of the future. However her world comes crashing down around her when she is rejected. But Lacey is about to discover a baku who will rapidly change her fate...

There are just some books that you absolutely fall in love with and this was Jinxed. For me to really like a book, it needs to have a character that I can get behind and support the whole way through, and in Jinxed this was Lacey. Lacey is an incredibly hard worker, she knows what she wants in life and will do everything she can to get there. Every up and down she went through, I went through it too, egging her at every step of the way.

Just like in The Potions Diaries, Amy is fantastic at world building and place setting. I think this is what makes me like her books so much as she instantly gives you a vivid picture of the story she is trying to convey. Amy also knows how to keep a readers an interest with a constant flow of new developments and a fast pacy storyline which you can't help but race through even though you want to savour it.

It's been a while since a story has left me with a hugely frustrating cliffhanger but Amy has done exactly that. I now have to wait what feels like a million years for next installment, but it's safe to say I can't wait!

Jinxed was everything I could have wished for in a book, headstrong, determined main character, unique concept and a robot cat I adored!


Jinxed is out August 9th
