Taste of Tuesday | The Cost of All Things by Maggie Lehrman


Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind meets We Were Liars in this thought-provoking and brilliantly written debut that is part love story, part mystery, part high-stakes drama.

What would you pay to cure your heartbreak? Banish your sadness? Transform your looks? The right spell can fix anything…. When Ari”s boyfriend Win dies, she gets a spell to erase all memory of him. But spells come at a cost, and this one sets off a chain of events that reveal the hidden-and sometimes dangerous-connections between Ari, her friends, and the boyfriend she can no longer remember.

Told from four different points of view, this original and affecting novel weaves past and present in a suspenseful narrative that unveils the truth behind a terrible tragedy.

The idea that this is ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ meets ‘We Were Liars’ is defanlity something that captures your attention right off the bat. I’m really interested to pick up this book sometime over the summer. With a bit of magic, and the idea of genies living in the world of this book, I have to admit that I’m very intrigued!

What are you excited to read this week?
