that I liked it This book is written in third person in Mardi and Molly s point of views Fafa s Book Corner Wordpress Fafa s Book Corner Blogger Beware spoilers ahead When I first heard about this book I was hesitant It didn t sound like my kind of witch read I have heard of Melissa de la Cruz Click on her name to access her GR profile She is extremely well known for writing Blue Bloods When I went through the reviews I found positive ones So I decided to try it I am happy to say that I liked it This book is written in third person in Mardi and Molly s point of views It also has chapter titles such as I Knew You Were Trouble Part One, Red Red Wine, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, and other song titles They were pretty funny Hence why I put this in comedy.The books begins with a prologue Mardi and Molly are attending Bret Farley s party Bret happens to be fairly popular so the twins decided to go During the party Bret flirts with Mardi and Molly This is the first time the twins have been attracted to the same guy And they are extremely jealous The last thing the twins remember was Bret flirting with them After that it is a blur They arise the next morning extremely drained and tired They don t even fight over the breakfast like they usually do They then receive word that Sam and Parker they re classmates were pushed on the train tracks and run over by a train.Mardi and Molly are not at all happy that they have to spend their summer at East End learning how to control their magic She and Molly are spoiled brats, so they assumed that their summer would be in New York hanging out with friends and shopping They also think that because they are Thor s daughters therefore Goddesses they are better than anyone else But after they are the prime suspects in murdering Parker and Sam their father enlisted the help of Ingrid and her family It s not very surprising that they are the suspects as they usually pull horrible pranks on their teachers and peers For example Mardi is getting a speeding ticket To avoid this she makes him talk super fast making it seem like harassment She then shuts his mouth and walks away without getting a ticket Despite not remembering the events of the party they know for sure that they did not kill Parker and Sam They use their magic for pranks, manipulation, and revenge Not for murdering anyone Unless they get their magic under control The White Counsel is threatening to have the girls sent to the Underworld Whilst arriving they are introduced to Ingrid, her husband Matt, and their two children Joanna and Henry Some time after they meet Freya who is Ingrid s sister and the Gardiner s Their father wants them to take care of Jo and Henry on occasions as well as get summer jobs To top it all off they are starting to investigate the murders of Parker and Sam Someone else was behind the murders but wants to let Molly and Mardi take the blameThis book was a breath of fresh air I really liked the writing style and how well the author did in shaping Molly and Mardi I do love a well written brat Jo and Henry were so sweet I loved them Freya and Ingrid were awesome and treated the twins with such warmth and when necessary put their foots down Matt was a good father and husband The writing style was good I liked how the author brought out the expensive taste the twins had and how they were absolutely spoiled It was interesting to read about how Norse mythology was linked the their magic Very unique The plot was good as well It was nice to read about the twins getting along and their growth I had a few problems with this When I got this book from the library and I started reading it, I was curious as to where the plot would head I skimmed a bit and while I didn t understand what I read I was content with the book As I started reading I got very curious about a certain thing And in the process of skimming the book to find this certain thing I ended up figuring out the whole plot I feel that this kind of ruined it for me Not too much though I probably would ve have seen some of it coming and rated it 3 stars.I really did not like the romance Molly s character while she grows she spends a majority of the book with two guys I felt that it was a waste of her character although I understand why it was necessary for the plot I felt really bad for her She went through quite a lot of ordeal Mardi s romance was not that much better I didn t dislike Trent but nor did I like him I guess I didn t really care for his character The romance between them was fast and I didn t understand how they were in love There were multiple times in this book with Molly and Mardi talking about if the guys they were with were different they would totally hex them Specially when they made physical contact Basically if someone they went to school with tried say touching their back or flirting with them they would use their magic on said males to shut them up But because the guys they were with were different they didn t do any of that Instead they kept on repeating what they would ve done had they been different people It was frustrating The book also mentions that the twins have been fightingoften I didn t really feel this It just felt like normal bickering Yes they were keeping each others boyfriends a secret but that didn t seem all that weird They just didn t want the other to know how they were with Sure it was a bit strange but I still didn t understand how that amounted to them bickeringThere wasn t a lot of training with Ingrid There was a Jean who kept on coming to check on their memories of the night Parker and Sam were killed But aside from that there wasn t anything else There was a larger focus on the romance than anything else The case of course was still a focus but not as large as the romance There were some parts of the book that were confusing I feel that this author tried to pull off to much in this book While it didn t completely fail it wasn t fantastic Simply entertaining.I still did enjoy this book despite it s flaws It had a nice ending and the twins were able to resolve the murders, avoid The White Counsel, and return home to their school.Overall this was a good book I kind of hope that the author will continue Molly and Mardi s story It would be nice to see where they are at in the future I will definitely read somebooks by this author If anyone is looking for a fast, fairly well done fantasy, then I would recommend this Also if anyone has ever tried to imagine what Blair Waldorf would be like with magic, you should for sure read this

    I bought Triple Moon by Melissa de la Cruz because of the special bonus content I honestly considered reading just that, the short story finale to Witches of East End, but it somehow didn t feel fair I ended up reading the whole thingIt just wasn t my cup of tea, I guess The plot had its moments, but the writing style it just didn t work for me I found it to be rather distracting, slightly boring at times and even annoying Still, there was one line that made the whole thing worth read I bought Triple Moon by Melissa de la Cruz because of the special bonus content I honestly considered reading just that, the short story finale to Witches of East End, but it somehow didn t feel fair I ended up reading the whole thingIt just wasn t my cup of tea, I guess The plot had its moments, but the writing style it just didn t work for me I found it to be rather distracting, slightly boring at times and even annoying Still, there was one line that made the whole thing worth reading Oh, my goodness, don t be sorry It s a gift you have, a wonderful gift If we all felt the weight of the world in every single moment, we would be in a very sorry state Please, keep laughing I guess I would call it entertaining, even if I spent a lot of time rolling my eyes.About the finale, even if a bit rushed, I quite liked what Melissa de la Cruz came up with Someone should definitely consider perhaps turning it into a film or something That would be lovely view spoiler Oh, and I was glad to find Wendy s humor still intact She will forever be one of my very favourite TV characters hide spoiler

    I was so excited when I saw that this book was coming out I have read most of the Witches of East End series and have really enjoyed them, so I was very excited that a teen version continuation of this world was going to exist Though, I was also a little worried too I wanted the feel of this one to match that of the others I went in with high hopes, and when that happens it is so easily to be disappointed Thankfully, that wasn t what happened.Triple Moon is the story about sisters, twins I was so excited when I saw that this book was coming out I have read most of the Witches of East End series and have really enjoyed them, so I was very excited that a teen version continuation of this world was going to exist Though, I was also a little worried too I wanted the feel of this one to match that of the others I went in with high hopes, and when that happens it is so easily to be disappointed Thankfully, that wasn t what happened.Triple Moon is the story about sisters, twins to be exact Molly and Mardi The twins are no ordinary girls In fact, they are both goddesses Their father is Thor, the Norse God of lightning Molly is the polished, sophisticated one She loves clothes and dressing up in expensive pretty things Mardi prefers torn jeans, has tattoos, and a tongue piercing The two can t bedifferent from each other and it shows in their interactions They can barely manage to get along for longer than a couple minutes at a time.The two girls love to use their magic to pull pranks on those in the world that are normal They can t help themselves From messing with the color of someones hair to making people physically ill, they find it hilarious and fun Needless to say, they are a bit spoiled and don t really understand that their actions have consequences that go beyond them.In this story, the girls are sent off to East End to spend the summer baby sitting for their fathers friend Ingrid This is meant to be punishment They had a wild time at a party where two mortals ended up dead and all signs are pointing to them While the twins deny any involvement, there is a small problem Almost the entire night is blacked out and they can t remember what happened no matter how hard they try So for the duration of the summer they are sentenced to spend it in quiet East End babysitting, working, and trying to figure out what exactly happened that fateful night.SoI totally ended up devouring this book I just couldn t get myself to put it down unless I absolutely had to It.was.that.good I was not disappointed at all I got to see my favorite characters from the Witches of East End series Ingrid was my favorite and we get a lot of Ingrid We get to meetcharacters And we get to learnabout this fantastic world.From very quick research, it appears that Melissa de la Cruz took some liberties with Norse mythology, but that should only bother huge mythology buffs She changed a couple of genders here and there etc So just be warned that if you know your mythology you may find yourself a little irked with the freedoms that were taken, but please don t let that ruin the story for you.There is also a bit of romance It can get a little intense at times, but it never really crosses the line where it becomes totally inappropriate for teen to read It does get a little steamy, but it is actually just a bunch of making out.I really enjoyed visiting the old characters Quite a few make an appearance, but most notable are Ingrid and Freya They are background characters, so don t expect too much from them if you are already a fan of them from the previous books But you do get to see them, so yay Also, this book takes place approximately 10 years after the last book in The Witches of East End series It does actually refer back to things that have happened in those books Nothing too big, but there are some spoilers for those if you start out with this one I personally enjoyed reading it, but I did get some spoilers myself since I haven t read the last book of the other series yet I think I will be okay though.I have to say that I loved this book It let me go back to East End and see the magic that is that special place in the world The world felt true to itself and didn t disappoint me at all.This review is based on an uncorrected ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.Findof my reviews here

    I have to admit, this is the first book by Melissa de la Cruz that I ve read I also haven t watched a single episode of the Witches of East End series Not that I m not interested, but because I wasn t aware that such a book and TV series existed, until recently Hence, I read this book without any expectations aside from the fact that I hoped I enjoyed it Although I found the pacing slow, overall I enjoyed reading it and I like the author s writing style.Molly and Mardi Overbrook are twin god I have to admit, this is the first book by Melissa de la Cruz that I ve read I also haven t watched a single episode of the Witches of East End series Not that I m not interested, but because I wasn t aware that such a book and TV series existed, until recently Hence, I read this book without any expectations aside from the fact that I hoped I enjoyed it Although I found the pacing slow, overall I enjoyed reading it and I like the author s writing style.Molly and Mardi Overbrook are twin goddesses witches Although they are identical, their fashion sense and personalities are vastly different Molly is self centered and liked elegance, Mardi is rebellious and preferred vintage The twins are accused of a serious crime in New York, of which they have no recollection committing Hoping that they will stay out of trouble and will learn how to responsibly use their powers, their father sent them to North Hampton for the summer There they meet Ingrid, her husband Matt and their kids who the twins will babysit They also meet Freya, Ingrid s sister who works as a bartender Aside from babysitting, the twins also need to find jobs Molly lands a job at the Cheesemonger where she meets a shy boy named Marshall, while Mardi starts working at the docks Eventually Molly meets handsome Tris Gardiner, while Mardi meets the equally attractive Trent Gardiner.What the twins thought of will be a boring summer turns out otherwise as a slew of mysterious and troubling events start happening in North Hampton Soon the twins find themselves in the center of it all as they try to recall the tragic events they left behind in New York, the secret of the ring they share and the truth behind the boys they are having a summer romance with.The book is divided into 3 parts and I found the whole backstory of how the gods and goddesses ended on Earth fascinating i.e Troy, the twins father, is actually Thor I also think readers will appreciate the inclusion of characters they read about in the previous books i.e Ingrid and Freya Although Molly and Mardi did get on my nerves, they also have endearing qualities and you can t help but root for them.The book also includes a short story which serves as the Witches of East End TV series finale.All in all I enjoyed this book and give it 4 stars I received an advance copy of this book through Penguin s First to Read program The book comes out on November 10, 2015

Melissa de la Cruz book because I have been burned.Burned so many times by this author.To be fair thoug To see full review with adorable corgi picture click here.Ah, Triple Moon it has been on my shelf dearest blog readers for months just sitting there staring at me to read it Obviously, I put it off for awhile it was published in fall 2015 and I only now have gotten to read it But to be fair, I have been pretty busy and when I did have time to read I really didn t want to take a chance with a Melissa de la Cruz book because I have been burned.Burned so many times by this author.To be fair though, I think a lot of my recent disgust for de la Cruz s latest work might have been because my taste has evolved as a reader and the quality of YA books has believe it or not gotten better When the Blue Bloods series was first published way back in 2007, the YA selection wasn t near as large as it is today And there was something so innovative about the mixture of mythology that Melissa used Of course, that series didn t quite turn out the way I wanted it too way too many continuity issues and its subsequent spinoffs were a little less than ideal for the most part.Triple Moon is essentially a spinoff of a spinoff Its parent series is The Witches of East End which was used to base a slightly cringe worthy Lifetime show that I sporadically did reviews for during its two year run I actually like the TV series better than the books even though TV Ingrid deserved to be hit by a bus, but if you want to hear me rant about that read those reviews but I never finished it so that might tell you my distaste for the TV series AND book series.So, why read Triple Moon the first book in the Summer of East End series, nostalgia maybe That and I was hoping that maybe I could relive my glory days with de la Cruz s books Needless to say, I didn t BUT, BUT Triple Moon was far from being the worst de la Cruz book I ever read.Note, when your competition is Frozen that s a pretty low bar, but there were some things that I liked about this book.The beachy setting for one, is always fun to read about I think the East End is supposed to be a set in for the Hamptons, where only people who are in the 1% seem to live And yes, while it does get old reading about rich people, I think de la Cruz can really capture the setting whether it be Manhattan or the Hamptons Yes, the cynical part of my brain is rolling my eyes throughout the entire read as teenagers drive around in Ferraris and wear clothes that cost as much as small animal surgery, but if you like those sort of settings de la Cruz nails it And admittedly, it s the sort of setting you want to read on a nice hot spring day.Though, I think she could ve tried a little bit on the fashion realism since most teens aren t likely to wear a bikini top when they re driving through the Lincoln Tunnel to get to the Hamptons in their Ferrari Especially if their plans don t concern going to the beach or on a boat which FYI Mardi planned to go to neither at the time If it was South Beach, I maybe could see it, or if they were going to the beach again, maybe But for a traveling outfit um, no.It s just like I don t expect someone to wear a studded dog collar as part of their daily wardrobe like Mardi does.Why am I mentioning these ridiculous outfits rather than focusing on principle issues of criticism that we re going to eventually get to in this probably long, long, review Because they were so jarring they had to be mentioned At this point, I feel like Mel s editor should know to look for two things to put the little red pen on 1 stupid fashion ensembles that only a drunk clown would love, and 2 Continuity issues.And yes, there s continuity issues here again If you need a recap of some past continuity fails where I use quote by quote comparisons check out my review of Gates of Paradise.Sad that s it s not surprising at this point and that I reading this principally for leisure and to review because that s what I do, could find them by only paying half attention to the book while looking at the cute pictures that my sister posted of my mom s new Corgi puppy Elsie Clementine that we picked out for her for Mother s Day.But I noticed some major continuity issues right off the bat Like Freya s appearance, for example, has evolved to match that of TV Freya s AND there wasthan one major plot hold that had me hitting my head throughout the book.Whatever.One though affected the climax of the book, and I really, really, had to wonder how the editor s missed it.The characters were a bit blah as well And wereor less Mardi isor less a rich version of Schuyler from Blue Bloods who was mentioned in passing to be bisexual Other than her saying this and having a bit of a girl crush on Freya, her sexuality is never mentioned again in the book More or less it s used as tokenism in the book.Then there s Molly Oh, poor, dear Molly who dresses like Mimi Force and practically de la Cruz s character to bash and to belittle throughout the entire book The villain we re kept told is a misogynist, but his misogyny is not what I saw so much through the book but where I saw real misogyny was the way this character was handled.How Mardi and everyone else frowns on her, calls her stupid, and how she learns a big lesson at the end of the book about not being so trusting it made me want to roll my eyes out Does that mean the character wasn t a selfish brat no But I felt for the way they handled the character Truly terrible.The love interests are equally bland in this book do not expect a Kingsley Martin, and Oliver Hazard Perry or even a Jack Force All of them are forgettable And if you think there might be resolution to the Freya love triangle plot in the original triangle.Well, you re getting punk ed again.I know I am complaining a lot, but again not the worst de la Cruz book ever If you like light frothy beachy reads, and can forget some major plotting and character faux pas you might enjoy this
