Review: When We Were Magic

Title: When We Were Magic

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was fun.

This story follows Alexis, and her group of friends, who are all witches. The story begins when Alexis accidentally kills a boy on her prom night. The friends come together and deal with this situation together.

Gailey’s writing was wonderful. I found I had a slower time getting into this, but that may have been attributed to reading this while society was falling apart around me, and being just a tad distracted. But it was enjoyable. Eventually, I also realized that the majority of the story was more character driven than plot driven. It felt like the climax of the story was the first chapter, and from there it became slower. Once I grew more attached to the characters, though, I became more invested in the story.

This book was also wonderfully queer. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: I’m living for this trend of queer witch books. Give me them ALL.
