About Spirit Witch:
If anyone appreciates what it means to be dead to the world, it's Ivy Wilde.

Barely recovered from her brush with necromancy, Ivy is flung once more into a world of intrigue, adventure and potential death and disaster. It's not her fault - it just so turns out that she's now the only person in the entire world who can communicate with the dead. And they're a chatty bunch with a list of demands.

When the ghosts offer information about a witch-hating mass murderer in return for Ivy's help, she has no choice but to get involved. She might be getting herself into more trouble than she realises though - and that's even before she's dragged to Sunday dinner so she can meet Winter's family...

My Thoughts:
Now innocent little Brutus... I also like the fact that this cat familiar is displaying more and more cannily intelligent behaviour... A cat who can ring Ivy on her mobile?!?... Oohh... I wonder what else the author is going to make Brutus do to torture Ivy??... now, there's a thought!

By the way, what's with the wand? Ivy never uses a wand. She's too lazy for that. Anyways, this book has the best cover yet in the entire series thus far! Hopefully it will be uphill from here on with the arts department for this series rather than downhill... **fingers crossed**

Another good thing going for The Lazy Girl's Guide To Magic series, is that, it always ends the book nicely. Sure, it leaves hints that there are more books to come, this is a series after all. However, it never leaves a book with a big gaping cliffhanger that you want to smack the author with the book upside the head. Authors like that tends to be unfollowed by me unless they have a really really masterful voice. So for the mediocre ones, they get even less chance of being read, never mind bought.

This series seems to be, not only "growing" on me, but also "addictive". So be warned!
