    1. The following review was published as part of The Box Blog Tour.Another girl gracing another YA cover. Sigh. Still, it's not completely mainstream. At least here, the book cover has character. The model looks pensive, preoccupied. Almost as if she's grinding her teeth in agitation at the complex turn her life has suddenly taken. For that I like this cover as it's more realistic.Now, lets get onto the book itself.It's hard to adequately describe a book that surpassed all expectations as The Box h [...]

    2. Originally from babblingofabookaholicLet me start of by saying I was really iffy about this book at first. I mean a little man in a box? What in the world are you going to do with that? Christina did a great job creating this magical world and I think it would be awesome if I could go visit all of the wizards, griffins, and sorceresses but that's not possible. ):Lou was a well rounded character, I feel like she played her part very well and I also looked at her as my annoying little sister.She c [...]

    3. Disclaimer: I received an ebook copy of this book as part of the tour. I did not get paid to read and review this book. All opinions are my own and were not influenced by anything or anyone.The Box is a nice magical story. A regular girl discovers a box from her dead Gran's things and from it came out a tiny man. That's when Lou's world turned upside down. She is suddenly introduced to a world she didn't know existed and despite finding out about it, she refused to believe that it's real.Somethi [...]

    4. **I recieved this book in exchange for an honest review.Firstly, I would like to say that I enjoyed reading this book quite a bit; the writing was great and it was a super-fast read. That being said(view spoiler)[ The idea of a tiny little guy pooping out of a box and into the lap of a young girl was a bit odd. I got over tiny little Al and read onhe became one of my favorite characters in the book as well as Sin. I found Lou to be annoying throughout the entire book. Since the story was mainly [...]

    5. Warning: I received this book to write an honest review!The best thing about the fantasy genre is how the ordinary world contrast to the fantastic, the magical and the supernatural. I really like stories that mesh high school boys and girls with out of there scenarios and creatures, and The Box is a good exemple of that. In this tradition, the book opening sequences are among the most surprising and intriguing that I´ve ever read. When a normal teenage girl opens a box from her grandmother, she [...]

    6. I must say that I have read a lot of YA books and some of them seem to be the same thing over and over again. This book was pleasantly surprising. It grabbed my interest from the beginning and such a contrasting difference between the sisters made me want to see how the author was going to resolve that, which she did very well I think. Also, I did not know how the tiny man was going to play out. Honestly the idea of him sounded a bit silly to me at first and then; Boom! It made since! I was kind [...]

    7. The Box is a fun, quick read that you will not want to put down until you finish it. Every time I got to the end of a chapter I meant to turn my light out and go to sleep but I found myself a couple pages into the next chapter before I realized I didn't stop reading like planned. My attention was grabbed from page one, and there is so much action from the start of the book that I couldn't stop reading until I found out what happened. Sin and Lou crack me up. They have a great sister dynamic- a c [...]

    8. WOW! This book has an awesome storyline that drew me in from the beginning and could not put down! I really loved the sisterly bond between Cindy and Lou. It reminds me of the sisterly bond between my two sisters. No matter how mad or upset we are with each other, we will be there for one another. The fighting scenes are very detailed and easy to follow along with. I say that because some fight scenes in other books are overly done and too hard to follow and I just skip right through them but no [...]

    10. I just finished reading this ebook and here's my review :)Structure: I liked the continuity from chapter to chapter, it made me keep reading. Characters: The two sisters obviously had some issues between them and I liked the way they managed to find a way to make it work. This actually was pretty realistic. I also really enjoyed that nothing "stupid", silly and way to paranormal romance took place.It was a very enjoyable read and I would like to thank the author for the give-away!

    11. Honestly the first half of this book was a struggle for me to get through. It wasn't that it was poorly written or that it wasn't interesting, I just felt like the beginning was very scattered. I felt as though the characters were written as people I was already supposed to know but I didn't and they didn't feel authentic. I was left with more questions than answers and Im not really sure how I feel about that. I gave the book 3 stars because I genuinely enjoyed the story line, I just wished it [...]

    12. I love this book and this writer. This is the second for Christina G Gaudet and a totally different feel from her debut novel, Magic High. While I loved MH, The Box really sucked me in--Magic High has a more comic feel to it, a little younger and a bit more innocent. The Box, while it has its dry wit, is darker, more intense and threatening.I don't want to give a thing away because I want other readers to enjoy it as much as I did. But I can say Gaudet's second novel will leave you asking for th [...]

    13. I enjoyed the book, but it took a while for me to get into it. The description of how magic works in this world was sometimes hard to follow but overall, it was a nice variation of magic and the way it works. I am interested to see what happens in the future with these characters.

    14. The book was an easy read, I tried it for something different. I did not realize it was for a young audience at first. it was rather charming in an innocent way. It is a good read for the young, rather simplistic for older readers but it had a nice story line and engaging characters.

    15. Had a bit of trouble getting into this book, but once I did I really enjoyed it.Lou is a great character, a 'good-girl' who perhaps tries too hard to please other people (a trait we're more told about, as the book quickly takes her out of her normal routine) and who doesn't always prioritize what situations she should be dealing with (although, she goes from being a normal girl to finding a miniature man in a box to (view spoiler)[ being kidnapped and fighting a magic battle (hide spoiler)] with [...]

    16. This is somewhere between 2 and 3 stars for me as far as it being young adult. It felt much more middle grade to me due to the way the writing and the way the characters acted. The writing felt simple to me, which made it an easy read, but it was almost too easy to read. Thus, for me, at times it became rather boring. I believe the main character was supposed to be somewhere between 16 and 17; however, she acted as though she was 12 or even younger at times. She was a whiny protagonist and altho [...]

    17. I received this book from the Author for my honest review.Okay where to begin The story is an interesting mix of Witches, Wizards and Sorceress's. We start out the story with a young girl, Lou, who discovers a strange wooden box in her closet. When she accidentally opens the box out falls a miniature man (Al). Needless to say she is extremely shocked. What happens next is truly the stuff of dreams well bad ones at least.I don't want to go and give the book away but I will say that Lou's sister C [...]

    18. More of my reviews at Secrets of Lost WordsYou can also read this review here*A review copy was provided by the author for reviewing purposes*The Box was a fairly okay read. I didn't hate it, I didn't love it, so I guess that puts me in the so-so zone. The setting was refreshing. It tells you about another world that exists beside ours. That's where the wizards, witches, and sorceress lives.Now it's time for Species 101. A sorceress can produce magic on her own and use it. A wizard has to drain [...]

    19. This review is part of the Read It & Reap program. Thank you very much for this book.When I saw for the first time the cover I was pretty excited and my expectations suddenly raised. It would be normal, huh? I suppose the girl on the cover, holding that box, is Lou, our heroine. She and her sister, Cindy, discover their grandma's inheritance. A very special one - magic! I really liked Lou, even though she was not incredibly well skectched, she has fastly grown and developped nice. I say this [...]

    20. 3.25/5 StarsThough I was able to read this book within the span of 24 hrs, I wasn't necessarily invested in it. Mainly I try to finish books unless I really really can't stand it.Essentially a coming of age meets fantasy novel, it focuses on sisters Lou and Cindy (aka Sin) as they deal with their Gran's death. Sounds like it could be decent right? Think again.The first quarter/half of the book is literally Lou freaking out and having panic attacks about magic being real. And her sister doesn't r [...]

    21. Lou is your normal everyday high school girl. She dances does theatre and gets good grades. She never rocks the boat like her sister Cindy or Sin as she prefers to be called. So Lou doesn't get why after her Gran's death Cindy inherits Gran's car while Lou only gets a small box. She's even more shocked when she opens the box and finds a small man inside no bigger than her thumb. Turns out Lou isn't as normal as she thought she was and is forced to turn to her sister for help. Now Lou, Cindy, and [...]

    22. Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.The writing style was simple and easy to read. The story practically flew by I was able to read it so fast.I know the story is supposed to be about Lou but is just seemed like a lot of the story didn’t really ‘involve’ her. I know that sounds weird because she was there but she just didn’t seem very present in the forefront of the story for being the main character. I did end up liking her as a character but it s [...]

    23. I recieved this book in exchange for an honest review.Overall the book was decent. It was very fast paced and easy to follow which was a major plus. Once I was able to get into the book it was an easy read and finished it with ease. I did however find it very hard to start; not for lack of easiness, but trying to follow the plot line. The book hit the ground running it seemed part way up the climax. It would have been nice had the story started earlier and given a bit more of a back story, but t [...]

    25. Lou is a straight-laced goody-goody girl who has always done the things she was 'supposed' to do. Never caused trouble, listened to her mother, never did anything extraordinary or unusual. After her grandmother's death, Lou goes through her Gran's things and finds an odd box. She opens the box and finds.a little man. Like, an actual man, but shrunken down to lipstick size. This begins Lou's attempt to find out who she really is, and what she is capable of, with the help of her little wizard frie [...]

    26. If you’re looking for a very easy and fast book to read, look no further. The Box is chock full of humorous dialogue and action. This is a refreshing spin on the old tale of a fledgling witch attempting to understand her powers. I appreciated how well thought out the world of Lou was and how easily I became immersed in it (thanks to the pacing).I can’t wait to read the next book of this series. I’ll definitely support any author who makes a splash in the witchy genre with original material [...]

    27. I just want to say sorry it's taken me so long to post these reviews, I've been so very busy with my homework I really haven't had the time to post them. This book is about a girl named Lou, and this story really starts with her finding a little man in a box from her dead grandmother. I liked this book, but it really got to me. There were parts of this book that just broke my heart. I really enjoyed reading it. I loved the characters especially Lou's sister Cindy. I really hope there will be a n [...]

    28. Very goodThis book was an interesting take on sorceresses, witches, and wizards. It had plenty of action and a little touch of romance. Two things I really like were the author's description of magic and the perspectives from which the story was told. Both Lou and Al's perspectives were used, allowing the reader to get to know each character better. However, I felt like the story ended quickly with little closure. It also ended with a cliffhanger.

    29. Absolutely LOVED this book!! From the very first page I was taken in. The story is laid out so you are sucked inside the magical world and unable to focus on anything other than what's gonna happen next and just like Lou you can feel the tingle of magic all around you. I personally am crushing on Al big time need more!!!

    30. This book wasn't advertised as YA but I think it is - that said - I loved it. From page 1 where the tiny man is discovered until the end it was a quick, fun read. The sisters are sassy and lovable, with "real" dialogue and emotions. Full of magic, wizards, witches and sorceresses, a portal and much more. I was laughing and cheering as I read.
