    1. Pretty Decent ReadI was quite surprised at this book it was a really good storyline and an interesting tale. I loved the book cover too. I recommend anyone who loves any type of magic to grab this book.


    2. Rebecca Hamilton's Something Like Voodoo is wonderfully clever and evocative. The plot is layered with ancestor curses, ancient magic and believable YA angst that had me remembering true magic - the kind that comes when you find your first love. Emily Bishop is a liar, and often a terrible friend and daughter, but in the end, she does what's necessary to right past wrongs for hope in a safer future. Noah is a tortured soul who can't help falling for Emily, even if it leads to danger. Here's one [...]


    3. I have a soft spot for YA paranormal stories. This book came up in an ad in my FB feed a few weeks ago and I decided to pre-order it based on ALL the glowing 20+ reviews. Keep in mind that these weren't simple 1 sentence feedback, but paragraphs of praise; I figured they were legit and that these reviewers received advanced copies. First mistake.Fast forward to yesterday afternoon when the book releases and it shows up on my Kindle. I've been reading some heavier non-fiction titles so I figured [...]



    4. Something Like Voodoo by Rebecca Hamilton was a terrific teen/young adult fantasy novel that adults will love also. A loner high school girl that recently lost her mom to a heart attack moves to a small town with her dad. Ever since she was young, she would do drawings when she wasn't aware of doing them and those people would die. It happened before her mom died too. Now she is drawing one of a boy in school, a boy that she is attracted to, a boy the It girl in school likes. The girl with magic [...]


    5. Emily Bishop had the "gift" as a young child, but no one believed her when she drew a picture of her friend with a strange mass on her head, then her friend died of cancer and her folks believe her then. at least her mom. With constant trips to the doctor, they thought it was under control, but her mom's sudden death had her reeling. When her dad relocated them to Hackensack. New Jersey, she began having strange dreams of drawing people in her sleepWhen Noah Caldwell bumped into Emily, he knew t [...]


    6. I can't believe I haven't read this before!!! This one deserves more than 5 stars, it's an adventure that everybody can appreciate! My heart is still racing, from that one scene, for the characters! The writing is engaging, the dialogues are entertaining, the characters are likeable, the phasing is fast but not hurried, and the story is phenomenal!!! I wish we haven't heard the last of Noah and Emily, because I will definitely read more from these characters, if there will be more! But one thing [...]


    7. I enjoy reading paranormal YA now and then, and admit to a secret addiction to books like "Twilight" (the first volume especially). I really liked "Something Like Voodoo" and suspect it will do very well. The storyline was unique and really kept my attention and the characters were fun and engaging. I read it practically in one sitting. I hope there's a sequel.


    8. This book was very magical for me! I loved it! This is a great YA book for any age. Emily moves to a new town and meet the "mean girls" of the school who have control of all the boys. That is until Emily arrives! It is a very witchy book with a great bit of magic and intrigue. "I received this book from Netgalley--this is my honest review*


    9. Thrown into a situation that Emily wants nothing to do with just because of her gift, and being in a certain place at what she thought was the wrong time, that turns out to be exactly the right time is what starts this book off, but also ends it perfectly. Not only does this book follow Emily, and the fact that most of the time she is completely selfless, and brave; but this book also follows a mystery which needs to be unraveled in order for her not only to learn how to use her gift properly, b [...]


    10. a dark and beautiful word-scape that will work its magic on you before the end of the first page.The story starts brilliantly, with the ominous belief that the main character—Emily-- is in Witness Protection. We soon discover Emily can't be trusted…at least that's the defense mechanism she has put in place to deal with some pretty major traumas: everything from bullying to the death of her mother. These elements alone would keep the story moving but very quickly Hamilton fires the story engi [...]


    11. Romantic adventure with a magical twist that has you page turning like there is no tomorrow! Voodoo rights and grudges that go all the way back to the Salem witch trials make for a dangerous and heart pounding riddle. This Paranormal Romantic Journey sets high school drama on its ear and makes you long for the days when fashion was the worst worry you had. Emily struggles with a gift (or curse) that she has had all her life and is not quite sure what to make of it let alone how to help anyone wi [...]


    12. A well-crafted YA paranormal story with an interesting main character. I'm pretty fussy when it comes to YA novels, but this was suspenseful and engaging, and most importantly, the characters felt real. Highly recommended!


    13. For a first attempt at young adult literature this is a superb effort. After the intricacies of The Forever Girl this is a plain and simple spooky story. It's exciting and never lacks for action. It's believable , without silliness, and is brought to an understandable conclusion. The writing is slanted towards teenagers but even so as a reader of more adult genre the book held my interest so much I read it till finished in the early hours of the day. One thing I'm keen on is that there's possibi [...]


    14. This book was such an enjoyable, unpredictable read. I found myself looking forward to climbing into bed early so I could sneak in an extra chapter or two. I love a great romance story. While Emily and Noah's romance is anything but typical, it is sweet and intense. This isn't my usual genre, but it's fun to read something different sometimes. Oh, and Sarah is the ultimate villain!


    15. I have previously enjoyed books by this author and this one was also a fantastic read. It was chalked full of the paranormal, a budding romance, action, and an intricate plot. I liked the concept and it was a different take on the Salem witches. This was overall a book to grab and I recommend it with five glittery stars!


    16. New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Hamilton's first young adult paranormal romance. Publishing with Bastei Entertainment.


    17. 2.5 stars. I didn't particularly warm to Emily and all the characters felt a little flat. Also I found that things seemed to happen for the convenience of the story rather than making any sense in their own right. Like our villain Sarah. She is totally evil in a completely over the top manical way but we are never given any reason as to why or what motivates her. She appears to have gone from realtively normal to complete bat shit crazy homicidal voodoo queen because she read about an ancestor's [...]


    18. Can a Teen Romance Survive Voodoo Curse?This book was absolutely to die for! Rebecca Hamilton is exceptional at writing edge of your seat stories. It's easy to slip into her main character's role while reading and feel what she feels. Once you start reading your not going to want to put it down. It's that addictive. I haven't read any teen or young adult books involving voodoo, only older couple books. I'd give the scare factor a 7-8 involving the scariest scene I read. Hamilton created the perf [...]


    19. I received an e-arc of Something Like Voodoo from NetGalley.This was a really fast, easy read. It's one of those reads for when you want something light and quick to get through. The story is interesting and had me trying to guess what was happening which was fun. The characters were entertaining and I didn't really have any issues with this book. But it was just an okay kind of book. Not bad just okay. Now the way it ended definitely leaves you wanting more and to understand what happens next. [...]


    20. Loving Rebecca Hamilton!Ms. Hamilton's writing keeps me completely entranced in this story of young love and crazy obsessed teen girls. I hated putting it down to go to work or sleep! As the new girl in town, Emily finds herself caught up in a drama she can't believe and doesn't want. Unfortunately, Noah, the high school dream guy needs her help. Enjoy this as the drama unfolds and she discovers exactly what is happening and how her family is tied to the whole crazy situation!


    21. First I want to start by saying I was so excited to read this! Like the blurb and the cover I just knew it was kismet! the universe lied though this book Oooh this BOOK, it had such potential! Then it just read like a two year old trying to color a picture, all over the place! It just seemed so flighty and scattered, and the 'romance' bleh I kept waiting for Noah to end up being the bad guy because then at least he'd get some dimension! I am giving it 2 stars purely because, well I finished it [...]


    22. Romance, secrets and suspense. It's all here in this wonderfully written story of a young woman in a new school and all the problems that occur. But this story is more than your regular high school romance. With magic involved, anything can happen. Rebecca Hamilton's writing brings you off your comfortable couch and into a magical world where you can immerse yourself into the story and get to know everyone involved. I highly recommend this book and I know you will enjoy it just as much as I did. [...]


    23. Something Like Voodoo is a story about a young girl who moves to Hackensack with her father after the death of her mother. Since she was young, she would draw pictures of people and those people would die. It happened to her before her mom died. Now she is drawing one of a boy in school, a boy that she really likes and also a boy the most popular girl in school likes. I was sucked in from the moment I started reading.


    24. I loved this book so much. I have loved every book I’ve read so far from Rebecca Hamilton, and this one was no exception. For her first young adult paranormal romance, she did great! From the moment I was introduced to the characters Emily and Noah, I was intrigued by their story. And I was pulled into their dangerous, and intense journey for answers. I was so drawn Into their world that I read this book in one sitting. I just couldn’t put it down. All in all, I would highly recommend this b [...]


    25. Unique story on the tortures of high school! Layers of mystery to solve at Emily's new school. Lots of struggles and balancing with relationships -- the boyfriend, the new best friend, the single dad, the mean girls. New twists on good versus evil and not tipping the scales. A creative YA book that I enjoyed reading.


    26. I received a copy of this story from Net Galley. Yay books!Spoilers possible aheadThis story took me forever to read. Though, it had less to do with the story and more to do with life. But I had to restart reading this more than twice. The story itself was ok, parts of it was interesting and the other parts made me just want to skim through. It was okay, I guess


    27. Great bookGreat book. Entertaining from beg to end. Loved the relationship between Emily and her dad and Emily and Noah. Could have been just a bit more detailed but overall was great!


    28. Very charming, if quite suspenseful, not being sure what might happen to who. Very intricate story, well put together. I will admit to being annoyed with both Emily and, to a lesser degree, Noah (but he had a good excuse, and did the best he could). Could have worked out worse for everybody!


    29. I received an ARC of the book by the author. I really love it. Totally recommended it. It's a fantastic book.
