The Spellbook of Katrina Van Tassel: A Story of Sleepy Hollow By Alyssa Palombo


descriptionI have mad love for historical retellings, and The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow has always been one of my favorite spooky Halloween time stories, so to say I was excited when I saw this book available for review on NetGalley would be an understatement.
descriptionSo did I enjoy it? Yes, quite a lot. Was it perfect? No, I think it was maybe a tad too long. My attention started to waver a bit around the 70% mark. That said, it was an exciting take on the legend. A little bit more ADULT if you will (Katrina and Ichabod get it on…often). The characters were well developed and interesting. Although, I thought Katrina layed on the “bitch-tude” a little heavy when it came to Brom. Perhaps if she had toned it down a notch, things wouldn’t have turned out the way they did. Then again, if you know the legend than you know this isn’t going to end in the couple riding off into the sunset. Still, even though my poor little romance-loving heart broke, the ending was satisfying. 

So yea, I enjoyed it…
