    1 thought on “Witches of East End

    1. Note: If I could give 2 1/2 stars, I would; but, only because I liked the beginning. There are few things more disappointing to avid readers than when we discover the book we invested time in, suddenly loses its appeal at the closing of the story. Although I was intrigued with the characters and the plot for nearly three quarters of the book, the spell of the “Witches of East End” wore out, getting bogged down with last minute explanations that felt more misleading than clarifying. Yes, the [...]

    2. Review posted on Fafa's Book Corner !Beware spoilers ahead!Last year I read Triple Moon. And I was surprised that I enjoyed it! So I decided to read the previous series that featured some of the side characters. I am very happy to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book!The book begins with a prologue. Bill and Maura Thatcher are walking along a beach. During their nightly walk they run into their neighbor Joanna Beauchamp. They say hello. But she merely replies coldly that there's nothing to se [...]

    3. Apparently this is my day for cranky reviews. DNF, no rating.It starts off with an overwritten, precious description of the mythical town of North Hampton, Long Island, then proceeds to describe one of the heroines, Freya, who has the cheekbones of a model without being gauche enough to be model-thin all over, as is demonstrated by her ample bosom. Shortly after that lovely introduction, we see Freya go into the closet for a quickie with her fiance's brother at their engagement party.I'm sure th [...]

    4. Joanna lives in North Hampton with her two daughters, Ingrid and Freya. Everything is good except that Joanna and her daughters are witches. Freya is engaged to Bran Gardiner. Ingrid has no man but she does have her eyes on the sexy, detective, Matt Noble. The women have been banned from using their powers. Of course, there is only so long that a witch can go without using her powers. Slowly the three women start using their powers. Strange things start happening around town. When all signs poin [...]

    5. Actual rating: 2.5 starsLet me start off by admitting that I’ve never read anything else by Melissa de la Cruz, except her short story in The Eternal Kiss anthology, which I remember being decent enough. I expected to like this adult debut more than I did, especially when I see the good reviews it’s getting elsewhere. I wonder, was I just really cranky when I read this? Why was I hyper-aware of every time de la Cruz used the phrase “for lack of a better word”, or dismissive of the entire [...]

    6. Actual rating: 3.5Witches of East End is a cliched witch story. It has the same formulation with other witch novels out there wherein the sexy witches are banned to use magic and forced to live with people as mundane as possible (yet didn't happen at all, as usual). But, the thing is, it has a good storyline and well-written pace. It has the kind of enticing mystery and compelling vibe that will definitely urge you to turn the pages and read more. And those are enough to compromise to the cliche [...]

    7. Another disappointment. WITCHES OF EAST END cinched that I am officially in a book slump. Packed full of aloof and unrealistic characters along with a hazy and murky plot attempt, I trudged through WITCHES OF EAST END, nearly forcing myself to turn each page. The author’s tone was snooty and the characters behavior was childlike and paired with the young adult writing style it made the “adult” actions of the characters almost indecent, even though in a well-written adult novel it would be [...]

    8. I had to write a review for this book based primarily on the fact that there are so many bad reviews out there on it and it almost dissuaded me from reading it. This book is great please give it a try dont be dissusaded by the bad reviews because they are completely unfounded. If you enjoy this type of genre (witches,magic, paranormal) then you will love this book. As all new series are it takes a little time to get the background story but once you get into it you wont want to stop. My personal [...]

    9. Melissa de la Cruz knows how to write a good series especially for TV; I LOVED Witches of East End series and I was pretty upset when they cancelled the series. I love all the Beauchamp women but I got to say Freya was my favorite. I really wanted her to end up with Killian Gardiner!I bought this book way before the TV series aired, but I decided to start reading it now. Because I keep wondering what happened with uptight Ingrid, with caty Wendy, with the bittersweet life of Joanna.I read the no [...]

    10. I was fascinated by this book until about half way through it when there were so many references to mythical characters and events that took place before this story started that I found myself totally lost. I loved the three main characters. But I felt as if I'd wandered into the middle of a series that everyone else had been reading from the beginning, instead of reading the first book in an up-coming series.

    11. I enjoyed this story overall. I liked it better at the end than I thought I was going to at the beginning. This is one of those stories that you really need to finish to fully appreciate how well-crafted the plot actually was.Mother Joanna, and her two grown daughters Freya and Ingrid live quiet lives in sleepy North Hampton, New York. Ingrid works at the library, and Freya is a bartender at the local inn, while Joanna redecorates their house and bakes. It all sounds rather dull.Except, the thre [...]

    12. Maybe I am just in the mood for fantasy stories starring awesome ladies. This one is about three ladies living in the Hamptons who are witches but are banned from using their powers. No surprise--they can’t resist the temptation for long and end up casting spells all over the dang place, with mixed (but decidedly juicy!) results.Freya is a sexy redheaded bartender who makes love potions for her patrons. Her sister Ingrid is a tightly wound, buttoned-up spinster librarian who specializes in old [...]

    13. Got your attention didn't I? But don't worry, I am not trapping you into reading this review with some random sexy picture. It is actually relevant the pic and the word Succulent. More on that later.Witches of East End oh how you had such promise when I started reading you. And then you fell flat. It was definitely an interesting story. The writer gets you interested right from the start. And the array of drama keeps you wanting to read. In fact, there are so many story lines happening in this b [...]

    14. Man, I hate to be mean, but this book was severely lame (I'm being really generous with the 2 stars.) It started out decently enough; the first hundred pages were fairly intriguing. But then it started to go downhill, fast, until I pretty much had to force myself to finish the last 50 pages.She couldn't keep a consistent timeline. Or, maybe in her head it's consistent, but she's referring to random events that we just don't know about (which is just as bad.) She varies between saying the women h [...]

    15. Having liked this authors previous series I thought for sure I would love this new adult one, but unfortunately not. The story centers around Joanna and her two daughters Freya and Ingrid. These women are witches and not only have they lived for hundreds of years but they were there in Salem during the witch trials. The witch trials ended up being their downfall, as they were convicted and hung. Being immortal though they were reborn unto their mother and the council decided that because of Sale [...]

    16. The Beauchamp woman, Mother Joanna and daughters Freya and Ingrid, live on the tip of Long Island, New York. They seem to be regular family, but they are actually a family of witches who cannot use their powers. Ingrid, the youngest daughter, is getting married to the wealthy Bran Gardiner, but things do not go as they should at their engagement party. The Beauchamp women all end up using their powers to help the people around them, but their helping hands seem to have negative consequences la C [...]

    17. Not in the mood for this and I really just don't have the time for it right now. I'd love to say that I'll try this again at a later time, but who knows.

    18. [January 22nd, 2016] RAGE REVIEW1 star.Oh boy, it's been a while since I've had a one star read. And this honestly baffled and enraged me. Maybe I'm biased because I've watched the show, and they did a good job although it had its cheesy cliched moments, it was still better than what I read for various reasons.Three spanning storylines, featuring through the sisters Ingrid and Freya and their mother Joanna --eventually got me confused. All began to blur together and I found myself waiting for it [...]

    19. I was almost discouraged from reading this book because of negative reviews. However, I was a fan of the show until its cancellation after 2 seasons so I wanted to give this a chance.I actually really love this book. I think the reason people are confused about this series is because Melissa de la Cruz never flat out states in the beginning of the story that these women are NOT your small-town human witches, they are not even "witches" in the classical sense. The women of this series are Norse g [...]

    20. At 200 pages into this, I was trying to figure out why I was wasting my time. It seemed like a cross between light fiction and light porn. The writing seemed cliched and fast; the characters are one-dimensional; and the only thing that distinguished it from a young adult novel was how graphic some of the sex scenes are. The last sixty pages held some substance however, and I've half a mind to read the next one. I kind of get the feeling the author wrote the end of the story first, or maybe she c [...]

    21. I'm still not over how the bloody show got cancelled ?? IT WAS ACTUALLY FUCKING GOOD LIKE WHY YOU GOTTA DISCONTINUE IT???

    22. Very pleasantly surprised with this one!I was nervous at first, because it started off a little slow. I don't like slow. The story seemed to meander around any and all useful information, and sort of seemed to focus on chick-lit stuffke feelings. None of it seemed very important, and I was starting to get kind of antsy 'cause I was hoping for a cool story about witches.However, what I first thought was going to be a plain old vanilla story about some witches trying to lead a normal life started [...]

    23. Witches, vampires, and magic are still very prominent in our culture and many people jumped on the vampire bandwagon, myself included. Seeing as how vampires have over populated the science fiction/fantasy world, I thought I would give the topic of witches a try. When I think of novels about witches, I think primarily of The Witching Hour by Anne Rice which to me, is hard to beat. I’m certainly not comparing Melissa de la Cruz to Anne Rice at all, but I think going into reading Witches of East [...]

    24. Turns out my feelings towards this book haven't changed the second time around. Witches of East End is one of my favourite television shows, maybe even the favourite. It was unfortunately cancelled after season two, and I'm on a mission to receive answers after the enormous cliffhanger it left. Witches of East End, the book, follows somewhat of the same story arc, but the characters and context were a little flimsy.Joanna and her daughters, Freya and Ingrid, are centuries old witches forced to l [...]

    25. This book was AWEFULL!!!!!!!!1) The storyline sucked Nothing happened until almost the very end of this book And it was just so boring, and incomplete. Also we do not get any real buck story from any of the characters, just some memories, but they didn't add much to the story. Ingrid "love story" was boring and Freya’s was a little predictable (If Freya and Ingrid were supposed to be reborn every time they died how come they have their memories from their past lives?????)2) witches (that use w [...]

    26. I can't finish this. Mostly because the writing is not my style. And plus, the story doesn't appeal to me. I like heroines who know better than to cheat on their fiances on the day of their engagement party. I have to share the first sentence though. Maybe it'll explain my trouble with the writing style."North Hampton did not exist on any map, which made locating the small, insular community on the very edge of the Atlantic coast something of a conundrum to outsiders, who were known to wander in [...]

    27. Loved it!! And what a cliffhanger! I'm glad I picked it up I look forward to the rest of the series although I did like the show little bit more I think it's just because the characters have a little more depth on the show the book characters were a little bit dry and somewhat selfish my favorite was Ingrid but I really did appreciate Joanna and freyas characters. I can't wait to see what happens next I will miss the show though I hope the author gets to tie up loose ends from the show with her [...]

    28. 4.25★ Audiobook⎮ I finished Witches of East End yesterday and if I had rated it then, it would have been a 4.5 Star audiobook. After a night of reflection, I decided to knock a quarter star off because I’m a little bit miffed with the abrupt direction change the story took in the last fourth-ish of the book.Before I go there, I should be fair: I enjoyed Witches of East End enough to finish it, give it a pretty favorable rating, and start the second installment. I also enjoyed it enough to [...]
