"A modern retelling of the German fairytale "Tristan and Isolde", Tris and Izzie is about a young witch named Izzie who is dating Mark King, the captain of the basketball team and thinks her life is going swimmingly well. Until -- she makes a love potion for her best friend Brangane and then ends up taking it herself accidentally, and falling in love with Tristan, the new guy at school."

I had some really high expectations about this book. I thought it was going to be all lovey dovey and it was, but just not in the way I expected it to be.
What I like most about this book are the characters. Fresh out this world, the characters are what makes this book. I loved their loyalty, the fierceness to fight, and their willingness not to give up. I loved that this story is not only filled with love but with magic.

The plot line of this book is what got to me. I felt like the pacing of it was too slow and so I hard a hard time keeping up with it. I found myself just wanting to turn the pages to get to the good stuff. What I also didn't like was that it had to do with magic and whole other world. I guess my expectations for this book was that there will be no magic but more of a fierce undying love.

Overall, this book is good. I loved watching the characters grows and become who they are meant to be. It does take a while to get into the story. But if you give it a chance, you will find action, magical creatures and undying love.

I give it 3 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get into this book. I made it 50 pages and finally gave up. Maybe if I'd kept going it would have gotten somewhat better, but given the goodreads ratings, I'm guessing not. Too bad.

  2. I really like it when I read reviews of people who liked this book, because I sadly couldn't get into it at all. I finished it, but I didn't like it. :( So I'm glad you enjoyed it!

    Thanks for sharing,

  3. Oh man, it was a dnf for me. I guess I should have stuck with it. I just didn't like the character Izzie. I didn't think there was any growth. Oh well... maybe I'll try it at a later time.
