Review: A Charmed Life by Jenny B. Jones

Title: A Charmed Life
Author: Jenny B. Jones
Published May 1st 2012 by Thomas Nelson Publishers

What can I tell you about this series except that it is genius and that you shouldn’t miss it.

A charmed life is a compilation of three novels about Bella Kirkwood, a NYC kid who has to move to Oklahoma due to her mom’s recent new marriage to a tampon-factory-working man with 2 kids.

Bella is not thrilled, to say the least, but she is trying to make it work, even though her new patent leather shoes got ruined while walking through manure, and even though the chief of the school’s paper gave her a story about recycling (trash diving is so not her thing); oh and did I mention someone is always trying to kill her?

This is one of my favorite series ever. Full of wit and laugh-out-loud moments, Bella’s adventures will keep you entertained and satisfied. And the continuous mysteries that unravel in this small-town are another plus that will for sure give you a fun time.

I love pretty much all the characters, but Bella is my favorite of course, because she might love her fashion brands but she has a huge heart and a lot of courage. Her nosiness is comical but her braveness is real. She's the perfect main character because even though her life is much more interesting than yours you just have to love her because she is adorable, and I want to be her BFF.

Luke Sullivan. Oh Luke, can I marry you? He’s the most perfect guy I have ever read. So chivalrous and smart, and even though he likes Bella, he is not going to put up with her games. I love how dedicated he is, and certainly, I love his preppy style. Oh, and I can't forget, he looks like this -->

Now guys, if I tried to mention every character in the series I will be here all summer but  one character I really have to tell you about is Ruthie. 
Ruthie is amazing. The funniest side-kick ever, she is snort-you-drink-out-your-nose funny, I do not recommend you read this book in public if you have one of those witchy/piggy/hey-look-at-me laughs because people will be looking at you weird.

In conclusion, there's only a couple series I can say that have managed to stay my favorites through all my life, A Charmed Life is one of them. No matter what age I am I always enjoy re-reading the adventures of Bella Kirkwood and now with this make-over you have the chance to own the 3 books in one for a great price and I asure you, it's money well-spent! ;)


  1. Great Review! Luke is a freakin HOTTIE!! :D I approve! I'll be checking this book out for sure now!

  2. I've been meaning to read some Jenny B. Jones forever. Some of my reading friends just keep recommending her to me over and over and over. I don't have this series - I'll have to check my library - but I do have There You'll Find Me, and I've heard INCREDIBLE things about that one.


I love your beautiful face!
