Read Slouch Witch (The Lazy Girl's Guide to Magic, #1) Online Free - Let's get one thing straight - Ivy Wilde is not a heroine. In fact, she's probably the last witch in the world who you'd call if you needed a magical helping hand, regardless of her actual abilities. If it were down to Ivy, she'd spend all day every day on her sofa where she could watch TV, munch junk food and talk to her feline familiar to her heart's content.
However, when a bureaucratic disaster ends up with Ivy as the victim of a case of mistaken identity, she's yanked very unwillingly into Arcane Branch, the investigative department of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Her problems are quadrupled when a valuable object is stolen right from under the Order's noses. It doesn't exactly help that she's been magically bound to Adeptus Exemptus Raphael Winter. He might have piercing sapphire eyes and a body which a cover model would be proud of but, as far as Ivy's concerned, he's a walking advertisement for the joyless perils of too much witch-work.
And if he makes her go to the gym again, she's definitely going to turn him into a frog.

Urban fantasy that feels like Tango & Cash as written by Ilona Andrews.
Ivy Wilde is a witch who was kicked out of the Order early in her career. Despite being brilliant and powerful, she's taken that as the cue to aggressively slack off. Years later the Order forces itself back into her life...

I had a break in between doing work and school. I decided to read this book for just a few chapters and ended up sleeping at 5am to finish it.
It's nothing incredibly complex plot wise but I can totally relate to Ivy in so many levels about being a lazy ass.
It's a fun light paranormal book with...

2 1/2 barely
Urban fantasy light. Very light, in both senses of the word.
It reads easily, but as a UF it lacks a tight, logical mystery. They don't really sleuth, they stumble around. World-building is pretty confused too, that thin layer's that there..
The plot is what makes less sense to me. An...

Ivy is a sassy,, confident, and most importantly smart witch...She is definitely getting added to my ever-growing book BFF list.....
This book definitely got its five star rating based on the fact that these characters were absolutely fantastic! Not just Ivy but Winter as well, they just played of...

I got this a while ago and put it off because I don't find the lazy thing terribly appealing. Once I picked it up, though, I had a hard time stopping and found myself closing the book (okay, turning off the Surface) late at night with a contented sigh. I just loved Ivy and Winter didn't suck, eve...

This was pure fun. Just the thing to brighten up these foul gray days we've been having.
This isn't heavy urban fantasy. It's more of a 'magical detective' story, featuring an unlikely partnership with a lot of chemistry. The hero, Winter, is a sort of modern day Mr. Darcy with his buttoned up, se...

Light urban fantasy. Funny heroine and cat. Author not great at relationship scenes but the story is good.

Rating: 5 stars
A delightful romp of a novel set in alternative London featuring slacker witch Ivy Wilde. Ivy drives a taxi, loves long naps on her couch and junk-food, and has a familiar named Brutus that you need to meet. Her life is turned sideways--for the second time--when she becomes the vic...

Welcome to the lazy girls' club!
If I were to be one of the characters in this book, who would I be? I'd be Ivy of course; I'm a lazy bum and proud. Hehe. Let's not forget about Brutus. I swear, I could hear my cat plotting the world's apocalypse. Beware, cats will rule the world! (if you were won...

This made for a cute and fun read. The heroine was so quirky and the banter hilarious. Plus there is a talking cat that calls people "bitch" and constantly demands food. I loved the familiars/cats in this read.
I wanted a bit more in the sense of closure but I guess that's to be expected in a ser...
