The Unfortunate Side Effects of Heartbreak and Magic by Breanne Randall

Book 21/52

“The sun was cold, the teakettle refused to boil, and the wretched scent of old memories burned from the logs as Sadie Revelare built up the fire.”
― Breanne Randall 

Dear Fellow Reader,

Thank you so much for your continued support and for investing your time in reading my newsletter. Your readership means a lot to me!

This week was filled with a lot of travel, so I desired to go with something that didn’t require too much mental focus to understand. 

For me, fiction is the perfect genre for travel, so this week, I chose to read The Unfortunate Side Effects of Heartbreak and Magic by Breanne Randall to help me through my journey to Prague. 

My monthly book club recommended it, along with other readers and authors who have mentioned it on their podcasts and YouTube channels. 

So I decided to give it a shot. At first, it was a little rough for me to stick with it, as the book didn’t instantly pull me in. After reading the Goodreads review, I can see I am not alone. 

But somewhere along the way, I became more invested in the characters because of their family relationships and decided to see it through. So, while I wouldn’t highly recommend this book to all my fellow readers, I appreciate the work. I love the vibe of the family dynamic and always enjoy a good story about a challenge where people have to team up to accomplish a common goal. 

As a writer, I hate to condemn books as good or bad because I understand the pure struggle and willpower it takes to finish a piece, so I have to give Breanne credit for completing the book and not giving up. I see potential in her writing. That said, give it a shot if you’re interested, but be warned that you may not enjoy the read.

Thank you for reading!
