#Review #Giveaway of Love Fortunes and Other Disasters by @kkaralius


In the tradition of Alice Hoffman’s Practical Magic, one girl chooses to change her fortune and her fate by falling in love.

Love is real in the town of Grimbaud, and Fallon Dupree has dreamed of attending high school there for years. After all, generations of Duprees have successfully followed the (100% accurate!) love fortunes from Zita’s famous Love Charms Shop to happily marry their high school sweethearts. It’s a tradition. So she is both stunned and devastated when her fortune states that she will NEVER find love.

Fortunately, Fallon isn’t the only student with a terrible love fortune, and a rebellion is brewing. Fallon is determined to take control of her own fate—even if it means working with a notorious heartbreaker like Sebastian.

Will Fallon and Sebastian be able to overthrow Zita’s tyranny and fall in love?

This book in two words was Cuteness Overload! 

It was magical and well need I say again cute.  I really did love the cast of characters and the story was a pretty fast read.  The plot it self was way unrealistic.  Its not one that made me feel like I could  go to this town. But that put aside it was adores. 

The romance in this was light the fortunes set in stone in their way. 

Its one of those great books that what you think your being told but what your really being told are two different things. 

I do kinda wish it would have been in a different narrative as this was somewhat hard to follow.
