Book Review: Dark Visions

L.J. Smith is known for the Vampire Diaries, but she has some other amazing books as well. Dark Visions is one of them. It's a trilogy which focus on Kaitlyn Fairchild, who has psychic abilities and is believed to be a witch. She's offered a place at the Zete's institute along with the other 4 top psychic teenagers in the country. While there she and the other students uncover a plan to use their abilities as a weapon and spend the next two books trying to escape and defeat the head of the Zete's Institute, Mr. Zetes.

I really loved these books when I read them, they're YA books and I went through a phase a few years ago where I was obsessed with Supernatural YA books. This is one of the few books I kept from that phase, and one of the even fewer that I've made the time to reread.

My Final Verdict: I definitely recommend this for my younger readers. The trilogy is probably just a bit longer than the longest Harry Potter book, but doesn't drag at any point.It's a quick and fluid read.

These booties are very recent from Old Navy, they actually still have them. My best friend got these for me as a belated birthday present and I kinda really adore them. Despite the heel they're really comfortable and I love the way they look.
