Summary of the Book:

After spending most of high school as the quiet girl, Ellie Kobata is ready to take some risks and have a life-changing summer, starting with her Anti-Wallflower List—thirteen items she’s going to check off one by one. She’s looking forward to riding rollercoasters, making her art Instagram public (maybe), and going on an epic road-trip with her best friend Lia.

But when number four on Ellie’s list goes horribly wrong—revenge on Jack Yasuda—she’s certain her summer has gone from charmed to cursed. Instead of a road trip with Lia, Ellie finds herself stuck in a car with Jack driving to a magical convention. But as Ellie and Jack travel down the coast of California, number thirteen on her list—fall in love—may be happening without her realizing it.

In The Charmed List, Julie Abe sweeps readers away to a secret magical world, complete with cupcakes and tea with added sparks of joy, and an enchanted cottage where you can dance under the stars.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I found this book sweet. It was a good enemies-to-lovers book. Ellie has a list that she wants to complete during her summer to come out of her shell. She is supposed to go on a road trip but things change and she ends up in a car with the person she dislikes the most, Jack. They are on their way to a magical convention. It was a light quick read that I enjoyed. It makes me what to see what else this author has or will come out with. It is one of those books I might have to read again.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
