Danielle's Reading Adventures

Reading is my favorite hobby, hands down. Books are love to me.  I am an avid collector, and paper books will always edge out e-books with me.

The Magic of You - Johanna Lindsey I absolutely loved this book, although I didn't expect to. First of all, Warren seemed like a jerk when I first met him in Gentle Rogue. He didn't seem like he had a personality or a sense of humor. Secondly, he's so much older than Amy. But I ended up adoring this book and Amy and Warren as a couple. Warren needs a woman like Amy. He's so serious and rather pompous, and she infuses him with life. I know that Amy chases him shamelessly, but I found it appealing in this book. Normally I don't really believe in chasing guys (it doesn't seem to work out well), but Amy definitely had a master plan. I liked that she didn't give up easily. The scene that really cemented my love of this book is when they touch each other's hands through the wall, and Warren whispers her name so longingly. He thinks he's blown it. But Amy is like Napoleon. She is not easily defeated.This was a fun romp, showing that being reckless, a rule-breaker, and pursuing the one you want for your own is not just a male Malory trait. The Magic of You is definitely one of my favorite Johanna Lindsey books.
