Lyrics & Curses by Candace Robinson

The first thing that comes to mind: unique.

The story is set in the 80s & it’s executed perfectly. When I read it, I felt like I was transported back in time. :)

It’s the start of summer. Lark works at a  Bubble’s Oddities with her best friend. Across the story, in music shop works Auden. When the school was still in, they connected with exchanging the lyrics of the songs (that reminds me so much of high school, I and my best friends use to do that all the time :)) just a few decades after :D) and hooked a few times after. But they are both kin on keeping each other on arm’s length. 

It all spices up when two strangers arrive in town, bring with them a whole lot of weird. :) Lark and Auden don’t realize that they are being cursed until it is too late and they trapped in the place in between. With only two weeks to break the curse or they lose their lives forever. 

The first half is a bit slower, with a lot of world-building and setting the story, the second part is faster, with unique paranormal & high stakes. 

Also, I loved the ending. It just opens up the possibilities, & I look forward to what will happen next! :) 

Lark and Auden are both moody and a bit lost and both very much into the music. :)  (I’m all for that :))Lark grew up with an absent mother, who recently came back and tries to play the role of mother. She has a twin sister, who couldn’t be more different and an older sister who escaped to college and never looked back. Auden lost both of his parents when he was 2 and lived with his aunt. After finding out what happened with his birth parents, he is afraid to get to close, to let anyone in.

When they are cursed, they only have each other. It’s just the sweetest romance. :)
