Comments A Spark of Magic

  • Dianne

    You just know there is going to be a huge paranormal twist coming, but it remains just out of touch for most of this angst and attitude filled young adult tale. A SPARK OF MAGIC by J.L. Clayton is a literal roller coaster of reading from start to finish, so buckle in, and keep a firm grip on the lap bar because this read will change pace and direction at a page’s notice!Charlies is that teen with an attitude, maybe because she never gets to set down roots because her parents seem to move at th [...]


  • Katie Slevin

    This book definitely reads like a twilight fan fiction book. Some of the themes are really similar and there's a couple of direct quotes in there. However the writing style was really weird. It was definitely a mature adult trying to sound like an attitude-laden teenager and it felt forced. I thought at first it was just going to be a typical teen/YA book but then it got a bit racy and progressed onto really quite adult themes so I was a bit confused! That said I enjoyed this book as it kept me [...]


  • Louise Smith

    Although overall I did enjoy this book it did leave me a little disappointed.I was hoping for more answers about why she hears and see Crispin, I know it will progress in the remainder of the series, I just wish we got a little more depth on that story.I thought the love triangle was just weird, (although I am routing for Tru). The writing style was laughable, forced and all over the place at times.I do want to see how the series ends so I will read the next instalments.


  • Mckenzie

    Charlie and her parents move to a bunch of new places and houses meaning that they have to meet new people, even though Charlie isn't happy about it and she thinks her parents are hiding things from her and don't trust her. I really enjoyed this book personally and I could relate to Charlie. I really liked all of the characters that we were introduced to too! Great book, I totally recommend people to read this book. 5/5 :)


  • Morgan Barton

    Where do I start? it all began when once again Charlie's parents told her they were moving again to a new city, a new school, new everything!! Charlie is finally about to turn sixteen , she's started making new friend, seriously crushing on some HOT guys, then theirs the little fact both of the hot guys in question have mutual feelings.Charlie's never been happier but will it stay that way for long? I loved and hated this book. BUT in a good way I swear!! Sweet Charlie has multiple guys vying fo [...]


  • Rita Ames

    I found this book totally enthralling from the start. The author takes you straight into the mind of a sixteen year old girl, with all the flip-flopping thoughts and angst that goes with it. It was such a refreshing and energetic style that I kept reading until it was finished. One late night later and onto Book 2 straight away. There are a lot of different characters and the paranormal sub plot builds up as you get into it, tantalising but never giving you too much. As the plot began to take pr [...]

    This is an excellent read, a great YA novel. Many times throughout this book Charlie reminded me of my daughter and what she was like in her school days. I also liked the way the author used 1st person perspective as it added to the story for me. The Cherokee references were very interesting to me as that is part of my heritage. Just a really nice work by a very stylish and personable author. I look forward to reading more of her stories.


  • Katherine Paschal

    Charlie and her parents move all the time to new places, and the reason is never explained to Charlie. She just gets dragged along regardless of her feelings. When they move to a new town, Charlie is surprised to find herself fitting in. She also learns her parents have secrets that she never would have guessed, and she is at the heart of it.I liked that this book was a mix of romance, supernatural, teen angst, Native American myth, and evilness. Everything was thrown together to create a unique [...]

    First of all, JL Clayton is one of the kindest people I've ever met. She interacts with her fans and followers like no other author I've seen. I don't normally read too many books in the fantasy genre, but I like the author so much I was psyched to read it! The book was brilliant. I was so invested in the characters, especially Charlie. Charlie is a fifteen year old girl dealing with normal teenage struggles, but JL did an amazing job of putting us in the MC's head. I felt what she felt; saw wha [...]

    Two months before Charlie’s 16th birthday, her parents unearthed her from her quiet life and moved to another town again. Although her parents had been moving to new places for as long as she could remember, Charlie still wasn’t used to it - but this time was different.Thanks to her parents, she was able to make friends with two really nice and hot guys before the first day of school. Charlie met True while waiting for her Mom to finish shopping, and then she met Jace when her parents took h [...]


  • Kevin Hatt

    A Spark of Magic isn't my usual style of book to read, so I wasn't sure of what to expect. What I found was thorough enjoyment. I found myself catapulted (in a pleasant way) back many years, seeing through the eyes of a girl and experiencing her thoughts and feelings, which were delivered perfectly. Moreover, the narrator had character and some of the phrases caused me to chuckle. Throughout the tale, you suspect that something big is going to happen, and when it does, it is dramatic.It certainl [...]


  • Ladybug & Daisy Book Reviews

    This is a book of suspense, love, and trauma. It will have you sitting on the edge of your seat for hours at a time. So much thought went into this book, words just fall off the page and into your mind creating a mosaic so clear. As you need the words to feed your soul, knowing you have to put it away to sleep. You have a feeling of sorrow and want that will not pass until you can pick up the book again. JL Clayton is an incredible writer, she knows how to have you on "pins and needles" for the [...]


  • Jaime

    A Spark Of Magic! Oh yeah, I loved this book. First in the series and I can't wait to read the next one. A few tears, a few laughs, a lot of anxiety. Not the guy I thought she'd have picked but something tells me that the next book will have her switching. At least,I kinda hope she does.


  • S. McPherson

    Good book! Though the narration was not particularly to my taste, the story arc was great and it made for a fun read. A very nice addition to the YA market.


  • Segnalibro Blog

    One thing that I love about writing book reviews is the wonderful new connections that I have made as a result of the social media outlets that I have developed Segnalibro with. Twitter, in particular, has been brilliant for this and has led to me reading some wonderful books following tweets from authors. Over the last few weeks, I have developed a lovely Twitter friendship with Jennifer Clayton, and downloaded her two books to read and review. Now, I've mentioned in previous reviews that fanta [...]


  • Kylle Hardzog

    I liked the story line. The author described the characters very well in the beginning (or when they were first introduced in the story) which made them easy to picture in my mind when mentioned again later. From chapter 1, I was easily able to relate with the main character, Charlie, since I was moved around A LOT when I was her age. I could feel the resentment she had with her parents for always uprooting her just when she was starting to make friends. Turns out that all the moving was for goo [...]


  • T.W. Barton

    I enjoy magic tales and when I read the blurb for this book I thought it held a lot of promise.While there remains some possibilities there were too many things about this book that bothered me.The biggest issue I had with the book is not really the authors fault at all but mainly my preference or age might be better way to say it. This book was clearly written for young readers and since it has been a very long time since I was a young anything, that clearly put me on the outside from the begin [...]


  • Pam Ford

    I just had a chance to finish it last night! I read A LOT and I will be the first to tell you that if a book isn't good or keeping my attention at all.I will put it down about halfway through and never pick it up again! I didn't have this issue with your book! What I loved the most about it was that I couldn't ever figure out what was going to happen next. Just when I thought I had it all figured outBAMyou threw a curve ball in there! I seriously can't wait to read the next one. I will however a [...]


  • Michelle Nangle

    I want to start this review by saying I have never written a book and I have to give credit and respect to anyone who has!It has taken me months to get through this book mainly because the Main character irritated me beyond words. I actually welcomed housework and waxing my own eyebrows just to get some light relief. The character development was very poor. When Charlie first meets Tru she actually says how wonderful a friend he is within minutes of meeting him, I thought I had missed something! [...]


  • Mimi Lala

    I gave it a 3 out of 5 stars. I received this from the author in exchange for an honest review. I was super excited at the opportunity to read this book. Charlie is a teenage, about 15-16. The book was a bit confusing since the beginning. The prologue completely threw me off. Crispin is introduced. I continued on to the first chapters. I would say, I got hooked. I wanted to read more. The problem then was that I found myself skipping sections or quickly reading to get to the parts I felt were re [...]


  • Natalya Rendall

    A Magical Beginning *SPOILER ALERT*I absolutely loved this book! JL wrote a great story.The story describes Charlie's journey becoming a young adult and trying to fit in, as everybody does when you're a fifteen year old teen like her. You have an insight into Charlie's mind, all her wonders and doubts just like any teenager. She's adjusting to a new town, new friends Plus she discovers she's somehow different and a world she didn't imagine.I believe that at some point Charlie finds herself confu [...]


  • Laci Spencer

    This book is absolutely amazing! I love to read so naturally when I heard that someone I personally knew had written a bookI had to have it! This book was a little slow paced at first to introduce you to the main characters! Some will argue that slow isn't the best word, but it's the one I choose to use! I know some people will put a book down if it doesn't catch your attention right off, but this book is well worth the wait! Its interesting all of the way through even if it starts out a little [...]


  • (;Missy.Lala;)

    This book was good, has the potential but I found the Charlie a little bit too dramatic. Yes I understand she is 15 years old turning 16 and that's when teens/pre teens reach their highest point in drama and whining and have a everything-has-to-go-there-way attitude, but in this book you barely see her as a 15 year old, or at least I didn't. When I read her character, I found her to be a 18/19 year old not a 15 year old. She focuses her attention on 2 attractive guys, instead of her weird nightm [...]


  • Laura

    What an awesome book! I'm not much of a reader but this book when I started reading it I found myself not wanting to put it down. I love this book and the author had some humor in it also The more I read the more I felt drawn into the book its so good. As I got closer to the end I didn't want it to end I was like what else is gonna happen so I can't wait till the second book comes out its such an awesome book I believe it would make a great movie someday. I've even started reading it again its s [...]


  • Jessica

    I haven't finish this book yet, i need the paperback copy of it. I can't get into it on my computer. My comments to it. Charlie and her parents move to a bunch of new places and houses meaning that they have to meet new people. She just gets dragged along regardless of her feelings. Good plot-line from what i read, i did have some problems with the style or portrait of the lead female. One was her name, i didn't like it one bit but the author wanted her name like that so it became her name. Seco [...]


  • Stefan Mroczkowski

    This is a fun book geared towards girls who enjoy reading about magic, different cultures, and flirting with attractive guys. Although I am guy, I still found this book to be quite clever and amusing!The story is told mostly through the eyes of the main character, a teenage girl by the name of Charlie, who has just moved to a new town and is having a hard time deciding which guy she wants to date. Charlie is also faced with ongoing nightmares, relating to a part of her that she doesn’t quite u [...]


  • Lequita Jones

    I will begin by saying I am an avid reader! I have read too many books to even count and with that being said I LOVED this book. The book begins with information bout the characters and a bit of the direction the book is headed and then you will get caught up in a whirl wind and be on the edge of your seat. I did not expect the things that happen. Every corner I turned I was so surprised because I just didn't expect it! I found myself inside the main characters head trying to make choices for he [...]


  • Lisa Miller

    You would think with the characters been 16 that this would just appeal to teenagers but, guess again. Although they seem young in human years their souls and magic are ageless. I'm so excited to see where this story goes. It pulled me in from word one. 2 hot guys fighting for Charlie's heart, 2 bad bad guy's wanting to kill her, one of which wants her power but, I think he is falling in love with her, too. Also an unlikely hero that makes you wonder where that road is going and unknown power bo [...]


  • Ash Elko

    Poor Charlie, all she wants is a normal life. The story, told from her point of view, lets the reader in on all of the insecurities, doubts, and worries she has about starting at a new school. She is a memorable character with her own clear sense of self and her own voice. To me, the best parts of the novel are through her own descriptions of the events. Equal parts witty, sarcastic, and self-deprecating, she proves to be a good tour guide. The story itself takes place in a well developed world [...]
