get out of your reading slump.

We all have those times when, no matter what, we just can't find a novel that sticks. We get through the first few chapters, and nothing magical happens. Well, help me, help you by picking up two fabulous novels that just so happen to have the same title. Cursed by Benedict Jacka and Cursed by Jennifer Armentrout

Benedict Jacka's second installment of his new urban fantasy series, Cursed: An Alex Verus Novel, follows the ramifications of his first novel, Fated. Protagonist Alex Verus's quiet life as a magic store owner abruptly comes to an end. His name is back on the radar for both light and dark mages, something he has spent years avoiding. But although trying to avoid trouble he isn't always successful as quite literally trouble comes crashing through his shop window. But what does drained magical creatures, a beautiful enchantress and a monkey paw have to do with him? After multiple attempts on his life, Alex decides to find out.

In Jennifer Armentrout's Cursed, high school senior Ember McWilliams was in a car crash with her family. She should have died right there along with her father. But her three-year-old sister Olivia brought her back to life with a mere touch. Whoa. Unbeknown to the family at the time, Olivia is gifted. She can bring anything back to life with just the touch of her hand. But for Ember, being brought back to life has left her cursed. She is the opposite of her sister, with one touch, Ember can kill. She spends her days dressed in long sleeves and gloves to keep everyone around her safe. Let's just say, life gets pretty interesting.

Enjoy these magical reads just in time for the spookiest season of the year!
