synopsis (From goodreads)

When the Princess of Nova accidentally poisons herself with a love potion meant for her crush, she falls crown-over-heels in love with her own reflection. Oops. A nationwide hunt is called to find the cure, with competitors traveling the world for the rarest ingredients, deep in magical forests and frozen tundras, facing death at every turn.

Enter Samantha Kemi – an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent. Sam’s family were once the most respected alchemists in the kingdom, but they’ve fallen on hard times, and winning the hunt would save their reputation. But can Sam really compete with the dazzling powers of the ZoroAster megapharma company? Just how close is Sam willing to get to Zain Aster, her dashing former classmate and enemy, in the meantime?

And just to add to the pressure, this quest is ALL OVER social media. And the world news.

No big deal, then.

my thoughts

I’m so intrigued by this premise. At first it sounds like a medieval fantasy setting, and then it mentions social media and the world news?! What? It sounds like this could be a really fun and original story.

    This book is really good! A lovely mix of old and modern elements. It came out in the UK at the beginning of July (called The Potion Diaries), and a lot of people, myself included, really enjoyed it. I hope you do when you read it 🙂
