“I would say it’s a pleasure to meet thee, Prosperity Oceanus Redding, but truly, I only anticipate the delights of destroying thy happiness.”

Prosper is the only unexceptional Redding in his old and storied family history — that is, until he discovers the demon living inside him. Turns out Prosper’s great-great-great-great-great-something grandfather made — and then broke — a contract with a malefactor, a demon who exchanges fortune for eternal servitude. And, weirdly enough, four-thousand-year-old Alastor isn’t exactly the forgiving type.

The fiend has reawakened with one purpose — to destroy the family whose success he ensured and who then betrayed him. With only days to break the curse and banish Alastor back to the demon realm, Prosper is playing unwilling host to the fiend, who delights in tormenting him with nasty insults and constant attempts trick him into a contract. Yeah, Prosper will take his future without a side of eternal servitude, thanks.

Little does Prosper know, the malefactor’s control over his body grows stronger with each passing night, and there’s a lot Alastor isn’t telling his dim-witted (but admittedly strong-willed) human host.

From #1 New York Times best-selling author Alexandra Bracken comes a tale of betrayal and revenge, of old hurts passed down from generation to generation. Can you ever fully right a wrong, ever truly escape your history? Or will Prosper and Alastor be doomed to repeat it?


My Review


THE DREADFUL TALE OF PROSPER REDDING is spooky, fun, and the perfect read heading into the Halloween season.

Alexandra Bracken has knocked it out of the park with her first middle grade novel! PROSPER has all the elements that I look for in an MG book, and they’re all executed so well. This book is cute, quirky, funny, and an absolute delight to read.

There is something so entirely charming about a story that includes demons, witches, ghosts, etc. but still manages to maintain a lighthearted tone, and PROSPER certainly does that.

I was enchanted by this book from the very first page and found it to be such a refreshing change of pace from my usual reads. I absolutely cannot wait for the next book in the series.

Author: Tamara Ireland Stone

Pub. Date: September 5, 2017

Publisher: Disney-Hyperion

Pages: 208

Allie Navarro can’t wait to show her best friends the app she built at CodeGirls summer camp. CLICK’D pairs users based on common interests and sends them on a fun (and occasionally rule-breaking) scavenger hunt to find each other. And it’s a hit. By the second day of school, everyone is talking about CLICK’D.

Watching her app go viral is amazing. Leaderboards are filling up! Everyone’s making new friends. And with all the data Allie is collecting, she has an even better shot at beating her archenemy, Nathan, at the upcoming youth coding competition. But when Allie discovers a glitch that threatens to expose everyone’s secrets, she has to figure out how to make things right, even if that means sharing the computer lab with Nathan. Can Allie fix her app, stop it from doing any more damage, and win back the friends it hurt-all before she steps on stage to present CLICK’D to the judges?

New York Times best-selling author Tamara Ireland Stone combines friendship, coding, and lots of popcorn in her fun and empowering middle-grade debut.


My Review


CLICK’D is a delightful new middle grade novel about friendship, chasing your dreams, and following your heart.

The story is so much fun to read. I love the concept of empowering kids to use their coding skills to create incredible apps that help improve the world. This book really celebrates the fact that our youth not only cares about the issues facing the world they live in, but they also take action to improve it.

CLICK’D was a quick and refreshing read that I would recommend to readers of all ages.

    OKAY. KRYSTI. SERIOUSLY. Stop convincing me with your beautiful and mesmerizing reviews that I need to read every book on earth. These reviews are SO SHORT and yet I immediately put both books on my TBR. I don’t even *read* series books until they are all out! You. Ugh. Love you.

    I wish I lived nearby to pick up some signed copies! Alas. Perhaps in the future.


    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      Hahaha. Love you too! ❤️😂 These were both fun. I really enjoyed having a week of reading mostly MG. It was a really refreshing change of pace!

      They do ship signed copies. I’m not sure what the shipping costs are. But it would be way cooler if you just came out here. 😁
