READ IT: Revenge of the Spellmans
After reading The Diary of Anne Frank this week, I needed something fun. A light book. A book that promised to make me laugh. Enter The Curse of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz. I fell in love with Lisa's writing when I read her first novel, The Spellman Files. I did not know there was a second book but a third got my attention and I couldn't wait to dive in. Will have to get my hands on Curse of the Spellmans soon.
It didn't me long to finish this one. The authors funny characters and quick dialogue made the pages turn and I found myself laughing out loud several times. The book could be classified as a mystery but the real meat of the story is all about the crazy Spellmans and their relationship with each other. And the therapist.
Having visited- and fallen in love with- San Francisco, the city provides the perfect backdrop for the story. I hope Lisa continues writing about the Spellmans.
