Cakespell by Gaby Triana – Book Review

I haven’t had as much fun reading a novel like Cakespell since Wax by Gina Damico! This story is as sweet as it is whimsical and witty. It gave me a good chuckle at times and CAKE. There’s cake.

A witch who is named Natacha and lures twelve-year-old Alex Mosher, the protagonist, into her magical apartment, where he must […]
