MP!er Kieran would DEFINITELY recommend Amy Alward’s ‘The Potion Diaries’.

‘The Potion Diaries’ is a fun read packed with magic and wonder. After the princess of Nova poisons herself with her own love potion, the nation is whipped into a frenzy searching for the cure – and talented alchemist Samantha Kemi might just be the girl to find it.

MP!er Kieran applied to grab a free copy of ‘The Potion Diaries’ through our Book Club and huzzah! He got one to review.

Had you heard of ‘The Potion Diaries’ before seeing it on Maximum Pop!? If so, where did you find out about it?

I certainly had heard of ‘The Potion Diaries before’ seeing it on MP!. My friend had gotten a review copy of it and she kept raving about it, so I definitely knew I wanted to read it.

What’s your favourite thing about the cover?

My favourite thing about the cover would have to be the colours. They blend in so perfectly together, and the spine is just as equally gorgeous!

Potion DiariesIf you could have any of the potions used in the book, which would it be and why?

I’m going to be a little cliché and say the Love Potion, but only so I can use it on Channing Tatum and make him fall in love with me. *Fans oneself*

What did you think of the blend between fairy tale magic and the modern day?

I really enjoyed that aspect. Some authors can’t always pull it off, but Amy definitely did. I kind of wanted to be transported there just so I could live in a fairy tale like that, but because I can’t I’ll just have to re-read the book to relive the life!

Got any favourite characters? Like hot love interests or talented alchemists?
Maybe….okay, yes! Zain. He completely got to me!

Would you recommend ‘The Potion Diaries’ to friends?

DEFINITELY! It was purely entertaining to read and had some really great characters that were easy to fall in love with.
