Read By a Charm and a Curse Online Free - Le Grand’s Carnival Fantastic isn’t like other traveling circuses. It’s bound by a charm, held together by a centuries-old curse, that protects its members from ever growing older or getting hurt. Emmaline King is drawn to the circus like a moth to a flame…and unwittingly recruited into its folds by a mysterious teen boy whose kiss is as cold as ice.
Forced to travel through Texas as the new Girl in the Box, Emmaline is completely trapped. Breaking the curse seems like her only chance at freedom, but with no curse, there’s no charm, either—dooming everyone who calls the Carnival Fantastic home. Including the boy she’s afraid she’s falling for.
Everything—including his life—could end with just one kiss.

I totally love magical circus settings so this just scored AAAAALL the points for me right there! Plus this centres around a kiss and a curse and magic. Oh yes please and thank you.
I also have no idea why I like circus books so much considering (a) I've never been to one, and (b) my mother told...

Sorry, but if you don't like stories about carnivals or the traveling circus, we can't be friends. Just kidding, but I do have an affinity for all things weird, strange, and entertaining. In 2016/2017 I highly enjoyed both Caraval and Daughter Of The Burning City, and this book felt like a nice b...

So, i really had different expectations from this book. I thought it was something like Caraval or the Night Circus (even though i haven’t read the last one yet). It had less magic in it, so it wasn’t a book full of magic. Just a bit to sparkle things up.
In the story after a really exc...

Confused by all of the low ratings. Y'all over here complaining about "love" being thrown around so quickly, when in fact that word was not thrown around until the 75% ish mark... like TWO MONTHS into the story. Fam. Two months is definitely enough time to fall for someone. Or did y'all not reali...

Actual Review (5 March 2018)
Here’s the deal: This isn’t a bad book. It has a cool premise and kind of a unique setting. Unfortunately, I was rather underwhelmed by the execution of it all. There was nothing new, original, or even engrossin...

This book is somewhat hard to rate for me. Did I enjoy it? Sure, I guess. But I enjoyed it the same way I might enjoy a Wendy's cheeseburger. It is generic, standard and I know exactly what to expect.
Let me try summarize it for you guys, avoid this section if you hate any sort of s...

I received this copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
The main reason that I requested the book was because of the attractive cover. But, I didn’t enjoy it as I have expected it to be.
The story is being told by the two main characters point of view, so it’s not diffi...

I always love it when a book has a circus setting - there's such a specific atmosphere around it, that hint of whimsy that leaves you filled with a sense of amazement and wonder. The circus in By A Charm and a Curse has real magic, the kind that comes with (you guessed it) a charm and a curse. Th...
