Lauren's Thoughts: I want to thank Katie Cross and CBB Promotions for allowing me to take part in this book tour. I have had Miss Mabel's School for Girls on my wish list for a long time now, and it was great to get the chance to read it. I love books that deal with witches/wizards and magic, and it was so much fun delving into the world of Bianca and the other girls at Miss Mabel's School. It was a fascinating book, with some very memorable characters. Bianca is a determined, strong young girl and you can't help but root for her and you fall just as easily in love with her friends, Camille and Leda.

Miss Mabel is quite a mystery and I'm curious to learn more about her in the series. I hope to have my review of the second book in the series soon, but I was only able to get through the first book for this post. I'm sorry for the delay on that, but I'm sure I'll love all the books after the great start I had with Miss Mabel's School for Girls. This is definitely a book for a wide audience. It's a fantasy novel that doesn't feel overly confusing or perplexing, so many contemporary fans are sure to appreciate it too!

I absolutely love the sound of this series Lauren, it reminds me a little of Hex Hall. I really don't consider myself a fantasy reader really, but love that blended paranormal urban type fantasy. Going to have to grab a copy of book one. So glad you enjoyed it Lauren and looking forward to seeing that you think of the rest of the series <3

I've seen this series more than a few times on a couple of blogs. It's one that has piqued my interest; that's for sure! I'm wondering though, if the characters are fleshed out and if the universe in this series is a rich one.

Thanks for hosting the Giveaway too!

Katie Cross said...

Thanks so much for including me on your blog! (Which seems pretty awesome, by the way). It's great to hear that you'd seen it before and wanted to read it as well.

I hope you enjoy the second book as well as the first!

I love the covers, which drew me to these books in the first place, and then the premise seemed like a lot of fun. I hope I win since I already have them all on my TBR on Goodreads!
