    1. 3.5 STARSI know I tagged this book as Young Adult, but I almost feel it should go under the New Adult category, even though that has a bad connotation for some readers. Most NA books these days tend to be Erotica of some sort (which this was not); however, the main characters featured here were in their mid-twenties and the plot gave us the same feeling as a YA Fantasy, which I found really exciting and a bit unique. The age difference, plus the setting of Ireland is what initially drew me in to [...]

    2. Reviewed by Lexie on whisperingstoriesA story about a young girl who is the reason a spell meant to keep evil caged is broken. Being the only one who can cast it again Catherine embarks on a journey filled with Druids, wee-folk and Bowen the man who is there to help her with a few secrets of his own.As much as I wanted to love this book I just couldn’t. The biggest problem was that the POV’s switched every two to three lines sometimes pages with no warning. I couldn’t figure out when Cathe [...]

    3. This story had so, so many elements I absolutely adore. It's set in Ireland and has all of this magical/mystical stuff like fairies, druids, and curses woven into an absolutely gorgeous setting. I thought this would be more YA, but it was a refreshing change to see a similar style story with adults in their mid-twenties! The prologue starts with Catherine visiting her uncle in Ireland with her brother and twin sister. The uncle tells her he thinks she has a tinge of magic in her or is connected [...]

    4. I received an eBook ARC of Oak & Mistletoe to read! It took a little while before I was hooked into the story, until the adventure began, and we learned more about the characters's backgrounds. I really enjoyed how everything came together at the end. J.Z.N did a beautiful job tying the story off. Looking forward to what's installed for Catherine and Bowen in book two!

    5. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.Oak and Mistletoe is a fresh new adult fantasy story that features ancient druids, curses, love, loss, and a quest for revenge. The story follows Catherine Greene, a young woman who moves to Ireland after landing her dream job. There, she meets the mysterious Bowen, who orders her to leave Ireland before she causes disaster to befall the island. Catherine accidentally unleashes an evil army of ancient druids by breaking a curse cast thousands of [...]

    6. Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.DNF @ 6%I had to force myself to get here to be honest. The sentences were choppy. They gave us information like this. So that we could see everything in small sentences. Rather than in one that would explain everything and flow nicely. As well, the situation just didn't make sense to me. Why did the uncle randomly tell Catherine about magic? There was no prior mention of it and then he was just killed off with no r [...]

    7. Well this was a short yet lengthy book but an interesting one. I fully enjoyed the story, hated the villain and the twin incident is unforgivable, you wounded my twin side *cries* but I can't wait for the sequel and what it holds for Bowen and Catherine.

    8. I received a free ecopy in exchange for an honest review.Catherine Green, her twin sister, and her brother have the opportunity to travel to Ireland as a college graduation present. Catherine's visit becomes permanent when she lands a job at a museum. She finds herself oddly attracted to Bowen, a stranger who's a sort of expert on local history who warns her to leave the country before it's too late. Catherine quickly begins to realize that she's actually the key to a centuries old curse as she [...]

    9. ORIGINAL THOUGHTS:I really enjoyed this book and I loved Bowen so very much! FULL REVIEW:Okay, so this review is a little bit belated (three days). My deepest apologies; I was sick all of last week and did absolutely nothing, so I had no time to write the review. It's here now though, so let's proceed!Oak and Mistletoe is a book which perfectly filled my 'light reading' preferences. Whenever I'm sick or not in the mood to read (or I am really tired and don't want to hold the book up), there are [...]

    10. I received and ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was so excited when I received this book in the mail. The cover is beautiful and I was intrigued by the theme of this book: Ancient druids, curses, love, loss.I think the author created great characters but they definitely have the potential to be better. I would have liked some more character development, especially with Catherine and Bowen. At first it was hard to get into the book because I felt the beginning went a bit slow [...]

    11. ***Disclosure: I received a free copy in exchange for a review.***DNFThis book- as much as I read of it- was boring, unengaging and juvenile. Things happen for no apparent reason other than to set up the next encounter, so mostly they occur in a vacuum. And it's all exposition- nothing actually happens to the characters, we're always told what's going on. In short sentences. Like this. That don't really explain much. So you get lots of them. The three main characters moved to Ireland, their gran [...]

    12. I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion. I so enjoyed this!! The dialogue was so realistic, and the adventure was exciting. Though it tied everything up at the end, it left me wondering about a couple things. Maybe they will be mentioned in the sequel. I hope so because I'm really curious.

    13. I have to admit it took me a little while to get into this book but once things started coming together I really enjoyed it. I loved that magical history that was woven into this story. The romance was sweet and the plot twists kept me captivated. The imagination that came into play by the author in creating this original tale was fantastic. It was a great read!

    14. I loved reading this book for so many reasons, one it was set in the Emerald isle, and I love all things Irish, I also love the druids of old and they featured prominently in this book even though only Bowen was a druid as I usually imagine them to be! There we had magic and the fae who the Irish refer to as the wee people and of course the curse! Catherine took quite a while to accept that she had magical power but once she did, she was unstoppable however I would have liked to see more of a re [...]

    15. This book was sent to me by J.Z.N. McCauley in exchange for an honest review.The premise of this story was new and exciting, and I was very intrigued to see how it was all going to play out. Druids, magical powers, dark and handsome men, mystery.l of these things drew me in! I love that it wasn't your typical fantasy book and took the story in a different direction that I was expecting. There's a certain character death in this book that I wasn't ready for, and it shocked me so much! I love that [...]

    16. The whole time I was reading this book I couldn't help but feel that I've read it or met the characters before. While familiar in some cases, the story with "Oak & Mistletoe" is not redundant and I really enjoyed following Catherine and Bowen on their journey. Catherine is an immediately likable character and perhaps the most mature in her family of three siblings. I really liked observing the interaction between Catherine and family and almost wish there was more of it in the story. In addi [...]

    17. I absolutely loved the plot of this book! It pulled me in right as I started, if I didn't have work it would have been done in one sitting! (The fact that I had the Outlander soundtrack playing in the background might have made me love this book even more, I highly suggest doing that) I originally was interested because of the cover. (Look at that beautiful book!) J.Z.N. McCauley did such a great job with her characters, Catherine has such a strong personality, and was very well written, she eas [...]

    18. Disclaimer: I was sent this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. I was so excited to read this book when I first heard about it and I literally freaked out when I got the package in the mail. The cover is stunning and the book summary had me hooked. The overall feel of the book is amazing and I love the characters and their story.Oak & Mistletoe is about Catherine Green, a girl who travels to Ireland with her siblings and ends up landing her dream job. She ends up accidentall [...]

    19. DISCLAIMER: I was given an ARC of this book.Second attempt to share this review.This book is amazing. Not only is the story original, but the writing is so good and the characters memorable. This book follows Catherine, a woman who originally planned on only visiting Ireland with her brother and sister. Evidently, Catherine falls in love with the country and takes up permanent residence. Catherine now runs into a certain man who keeps warning her to leave Ireland. At first, she just thinks he is [...]

    20. Oak an Mistletoe by J.Z.N. McCauley is volume one in her Rituals Trilogy. In this book we are introduced to Catherine, her twin sister Kathleen and her older brother, Danny. Things are great in their lives. They are arriving in Ireland for a little vacation and for Catherine to apply for an internship. While they are there they meet up with a family member one day only to learn the very next day that he has been murdered. She not only lands the internship but is told that they want her to stay o [...]

    21. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and learned so much about Ireland in the process. I have always wanted to visit Ireland but this book has made me want to visit all the places in Ireland it mentions. From the way the author writes, I would think they lived in Ireland for years. I highly recommend this book to people who love romance, fantasy, or Ireland. Oak and Mistletoe started off a little slow but gained momentum and kept me hooked. Catherine is a relatable character who visits Ireland with he [...]

    22. I was given a copy of the ebook in exchange of an honest review.We follow the story of Catherine, as her life dramatically changes once she gets involved with magic, curses and ancient druids.Once she accidentally breaks an ancient curse keeping a big baddy trapped, she has to partner up with her brother and a mysterious fellow in order to make everything right again.Something interesting about this story is that even though the book is considered a YA novel the main character is actually in her [...]

    23. Oak & Misletoe is a new adult novel about Druids, Celtic myth, and coming of age. J.Z.N. McCauley did an excellent job of intertwining current events with fantasy and the past, and I was intrigued by how she was able to create a contemporary cast of characters, but was also able to make fantasy become believable and alive.McCauley's novel is a perfect book for anyone looking into Celtic mythology simply because it connects mythology to modern life, and it makes it understandable. I also alwa [...]

    24. I thoroughly enjoyed Oak and Mistletoe. Although in my opinion it did start off a bit a slow, I know that that was because of character development. But once it got going it really took off and I couldn't put it down. I spent many nights falling asleep reading the book because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. J.Z.N. McCauley really gives you characters that you love to love and that you love to hate. I was really happy with their fates. I did get frustrated at one point that it to [...]

    25. I really enjoyed this one! Rich in culture and magic, and well written! I loved reading about the characters, especially Catherine Green, and her connection to Ireland. I love the setting, and the descriptions used throughout the book, it really is a beautiful setting, and one I could easily picture as I read along. While it is a fantasy, it also has a touch of historical fiction and maybe even a bit of sci-fi mixed in, making it a thrilling read. Fast paced, and a quick read, I'm excited to rea [...]

    26. Danny, Kathleen, and Catherine Green Go to Dublin, Ireland to celebrate college graduation. They stay at a hostel and visit the sights, including a visit to Uncle Mickey and his dog Brighton in the town of Baltinglass. Uncle Mickey and Caty, a nickname Catherine hates, have much in common with her affinity for Irish ruins and folklore and is one with the isle. Her uncle told her she was very special, which she highly doubted since Kathleen is her twin sister. As they have traveled along visiting [...]

    27. This story had potential and some idea, but it was killed by the execution of it.I couldnt place events in time line like something was leaking.unfortunately it didnt work for me

    28. I absolutely loved reading Oak & Mistletoe! Since I love Ireland and mythology ever since, I knew I had to read this book, and it was totally worth it! The story of Oak & Mistletoe is mostly about Catherine Green, a girl which comes to Ireland with her twin sister Kathleen and her brother Danny to visit their relatives at first, but when she gets an amazing job at a museum, she decides to stay longer. Everything seems well until the good-looking Bowen appears in Catherine's life and take [...]

    29. I couldn't finish this, I quit at 30%. It was all so contrived.Red hair is rare in Ireland (what.)It's perfectly normal for all three siblings to move to another country together, as adults, not as children with their parents.A person who studied history in college and works in a museum in Ireland knows almost nothing about Druids.The main character falls for her creepy stalker who won't tell her anything about what is going on and attacks her twin sister. She falls for him before they even have [...]

    30. I received this the arc of this book from the author. No review requirements stipulated. giveaway. Thank you so much for sending it my way. I was thrilled to get this in the mail today. The blurb on the back was intriguing and I dove into it. The premise of the book is interesting. The prologue opens with twin sisters and an older brother taking a trip to Ireland after the twin sisters graduate from college. They stay in a hostel one night, then visit a long lost uncle the next day, then the th [...]
