First Times A Charm by Laura Greenwood is the first book in the Grimalkin Academy series. In this book, a student named Mona attending the Grimalkin Academy has her magic begin malfunctioning within a day of beginning her first terms as a student at the magical university. I loved the way the book focuses on the mystery of Mona’s magical problem while simultaneously building and exciting world to keep the reader interested. This story was intense yet whimsical with a smattering of young romance thrown in. This is the perfect read for anyone who enjoys reading a book full of unique situations that young witches need to deal with while trying to pursue a magic based education. First Times A Charm is an interesting and humorous story about magical mistakes.

First Times A Charm is a cute, short novella and a great start to the Grimalkin Academy series. I loved that every time Mona tried her magic she ended up with kittens. This is a slow burn reverse harem filled with magic, a curse, kittens, humor, drama and more. Great writing, fun characters and cute kittens make this a fun read and I can't wait to find out what happens in the next book.

I enjoyed this book as the start of a new series. I liked that Mona accidentally creating kittens was something I haven't seen before. I look forward to the next book in the series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is our short introduction to a new potentially fun series, judging by all the mishaps and craziness! Mona used to be a talented teenage witch until someone cursed her. So as she starts magic school at Grimalkin Academy, her spells are producing KITTENS instead of what she intended! She’s not sure what’s going on with her wonky magic. Schools can be difficult enough to navigate without the embarrassing failure of simple magic spells. So you know the bullies will come out to play! One bright spot for Mona is that she has met some potential boyfriends -- Caspian, Ryan and Thomas -- who look like they may be contenders for her “harem” of sweethearts if things go well. She just has to survive the kittens (adorable, but how many pets does one need?), unreliable spells, bullies lurking in the hallways, and oh yeah -- find the witch who cursed her to get the curse removed. I am definitely ready for the next book which I am assuming will be longer and go deeper into the characters. The story line is enticing and I’ve already picked out my favorite characters. Grab your copy, meet the guys, and get ready for the adventure this author always delivers!

This does end on a cliffhanger which I normally don't like and usually avoid those stories but I like Laura Greenwood and this was written so well that you can't help but keep reading. I wish we could have gotten more of Mona and the guys but it's understandable we will get more in the coming book. It is somewhat funny with all the kittens being produced.

Mona is a witch whose never had a problem with her magic before but when she starts going to Grimalkin Academy it starts going a bit haywire. It seems to have a liking for conjuring up kittens. Cute! With the help of her friend, her friends brother (Ryan), New student (Caspian) and Teacher? (Thomas aka Mr Smith). Three guys im assuming will be her reverse harem in the future. A great start though. Im loving Mona & the guys already. The only problem i have is that the book seemed a short read or maybe it was because i read it quickly. I enjoyed it so much
