    1. “What will you let go of? What can you not afford to lose?” I had heard literally nothing about this book or the author when I requested it from PRH's First to Read program. All I knew, going into it, was what you can read on the GR synopsis, and that it had an intriguing cover.✘ PLOTWhen three young Irish girls find a mysterious spellbook and carry out a spell to return lost items, they don't pay enough attention to the line that warns them items must be sacrificed for those items being b [...]

    2. I find it crazy that a book with curious magic could not at least be a little spellbinding. But it definitely isn’t. I read sixty boring, but charmingly-written pages of absolutely nothing at all before I decided not to take it anymore.I get so giddy when I pick a book with witches up. I always think it’s going to transport me into another world. Witches have been my favourite creatures for such a long time.It’s no wonder Magnus Bane is one of the best characters I’ve ever read about. Wh [...]

    3. “If you’re not careful you can spend your whole life looking for what you’ve lost.”Spellbook of the Lost and Found is an exceptionally weird book. Fowley-Doyle's writing has a tone I've never quite seen before. She's not writing magical realism, but it's somewhere close. There's a sense of everyday magic to Spellbook of the Lost and Found. As the book goes on, you're forced to ask: is the magic is even real? And perhaps more importantly, does it matter either way?Yet despite all the weir [...]

    4. Spellbook of the Lost and Found is a book I’m really torn over. It is truly a beautiful and magical book, but there were other aspects that made it hard for me to connect to everything.L I K E S🌹 That cover is GORGEOUS. It’s so aesthetic and I can’t lie that that’s a big reason why I picked this up. Actually, the whole atmosphere of this book is so magical and aesthetic.🌷 Fowley-Doyle’s writing style is absolutely magical! That’s probably why the whole book felt so aesthetic, b [...]

    5. I want to thank NetGalley and Penguin Young Readers Group for providing me with this copy in exchange for an honest reviewWow, I ended up being much better than I expected! , I really enjoyed the book and all the time I felt that it reminded me of The Raven Boys since the plot has a lot of mystery, friendship and magical realism. A great book that grows a lot as you read it, it has a very interesting concept, a great diversity of characters and a very catchy writing style4/5 StarsYou can find th [...]

    6. Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moïra Fowley-Doyle was more than magical, it was filled with mystery, strange happenings, friendship, and love. In the beginning, it was hard to keep track of all the characters but as you keep reading it all comes together and makes sense - just have patience. I did love how the past and the present collide and how it all ties together in the end. Unfortunately, some questions are left unanswered so maybe there will be another book in the future. All in all, [...]

    7. I absolutely adored Fowley-Doyle's debut, The Accident Season (full review here), and had been eager to get to her latest release partly for that reason and partly for this absolutely stunning Autumnal-themed cover. I am so pleased that the interior of this book lived up to both its outer-beauty and the author's former prowess of penmanship.Just like The Accident Season, this had a dark and eerie premise. Things are being lost. From diary pages, charm bracelets, and hair clips, to things of a fa [...]

    8. Review originally on Heart Full of BooksI had seen a lot of hype surrounding this book on twitter – lots of authors and publishers getting ARCS, which were beautiful, by the way. So, it’s one that’s been on my radar for a while, even though I had no idea when it was coming out. Then I went book shopping with Maddie and happened to see Spellbook For The Lost and Found on the table and I NEEDED IT. I picked it up practically as soon as I got home (which hardly ever happens) and I feel like I [...]

    9. This book was definitely something.It was just a hard book for me to read, and it was a BR so you would have thought that would have made it easier but that wasn't the case sadly :(This book it sent from multiple POV's and that was what I found confusing, especially the first one hundred or so pages as none of them had met up with each other and it was like I was reading three different books in a series at timesically, I'm not going to lie - I'm going to hold my hand up and just admit it.I HAD [...]

    10. This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.I really liked this story. I read most of the book in a single day and captivated by it. I decided to read this book because I was intrigued by the blurb and I am really glad that I did. This was one of those books that made me want to keep reading "just one more chapter" until I had reached the end.This book is told from multiple points of view and it works very well for this story. Every point of view in this book really added some [...]

    11. ARC was sent to me by publisher in exchange for an honest reviewI really enjoyed The Accident Season so I was super hyped for Spellbook of the Lost and Found.I love Moïra's writing style so much. It's so unique, creative, and almost poetic in some ways. I fell in love with her writing even more with SotLaF. The plot is so entertaining, there's diverse characters, and the magic is bomb. The only thing I wasn't really into was how many perspectives there was. I'm not a big fan of multiple perspec [...]

    12. ++++ // Great depictions of friendships, family bonds and (LGBTQ+!) romance. Teenagers messing around with magic. A setting in the Irish countryside. A wonderful writing style that manages to convey the magical and mysterious atmosphere of it all.- // Too many characters and too many interconnections between all of them that felt a little construed at times (even though I really liked them all, maybe less characters would've been a wiser choice and less confusing to read about, especially toward [...]

    13. I felt obliged to read & review this book because of 2 reasons:1. I won this book in a giveaway (thank you penguin teen)2. I'm buddy reading with katIf it weren't for these 2 reasons, I would actually DNF this book. I mean, life is short and there are plenty of books out there, etc. Anyway, I think this book might be something John Green would write if he decides to venture into magical realism. But I think he should just stick to contemporary. I think this is also what I think about this bo [...]

    14. 3.5 stars.Spellbook of the Lost and Found is set in an Irish small town where, after the night of the bonfire, everyone loses something.It's told in three PoVs:•Olive. She is a chubby bi girl with a deaf ear. She was at the bonfire the night the lost answered, and she was getting drunk with her friend Rose (also bi, and biracial Indian).•Hazel. Her and her brother Rowan are new in town. Her PoV wasn't my favorite - the "Dark!Secret I keep mentioning to the reader" is one of my least favorite [...]

    15. Rating 3 StarsWell this book was definitely in the realm of WTF. There's a lot of reasons for my brain to be completely confused:One is the Spellbook itself. It wasn't truly explained why there was a spellbook that helped the person who casts the spell to find what was lost. It was briefly said that Mags had possibly been the one to write the book but its not certain. Mags remains an enigma and I hope this is not going to stay a stand alone because this is just one loose tie that was never clari [...]

    16. Magical and enchanting, this is a book with dirt beneath its nailsa bit scruffy and unkempt, with whiskey-breath and birds-nest hair, and a charming sideways grin as it sidles in your back door at two in the morningopen your heart to it, and welcome the weirdness and the wonder inside.

    17. so we have witchcraft, female bisexuality, an irish setting, romance, girls, boys, and wonderful writing.of course this is now one of my new favourite books.

    18. ADD THIS TO UR TBR and on august 8th, go buy this book. WOWE! bi girls and magic and spells and feminism and friendship and JUST, listen, u wanna read this

    19. So I really struggled with this one. It took a while for the plot to emerge and when it did it was so basic. Items are lost, a group of kids cast a spell to get them back. (More or less). There is more character building than plot. Which I typically enjoy but there were just so many characters. I felt it didn’t go deep enough.I think I’ve decided magical realism just isn’t for me. I’m not sure with the contemporary setting that the characters would have responded to magic/spells as they [...]

    20. 3.5 Stars“Be careful what you wish for; not all lost things should be found.”This book was honestly one big mindwarp. But I kinda liked it. It’s gritty and seductive, with an air of mystery that created a perfectly surreal environment for the story. We follow Olive, and her best friend Rose, as they begin to lose things after the town’s annual bonfire. They meet up with 3 mysterious teens, Hazel, Rowan, and Ivy, who have lost things of their own. The ragtag group begins to find diary pag [...]

    21. SPELLBOOK OF THE LOST AND FOUND is what I would've liked the THE ACCIDENT SEASON to be more like. Mysterious and strange and magical and haunting but, this time, coherent. There are so many threads to this story, so much found that is lost and then found again (and lost once more), and while I definitely pieced together some of those bits before the reveal it didn't ruin a single moment for me. It was still so wonderful. I'm at a total loss how to make a proper review considering I have no quote [...]

    22. Gosh this was a challenge! At times I really enjoyed parts of this, and others it was like slogging through mud in your favorite pair of shoes. There were many elements of this I liked, and yes, I felt the vibe of Moira's other book, the Accident Season. That was why I was so frustrated by the inconsistent pacing, the fact that there are SO many characters and yet they are all the same voice. Ash, Laurel, Holly. Olive and Rose. Rowan, Ivy, Hazel. Yeah, all plant names. They were so confusing. It [...]

    23. Initial Impressions 9/11/17: 3 - 3.5 starsI loved Moira Fowley-Doyle's atmospheric writing in her debut, THE ACCIDENT SEASON, so I was very excited to read SPELLBOOK FOR THE LOST AND FOUND which sounded fall-ish (it actually takes place in spring/summer. Oops) and I was very excited to start it when I received an audio copy for review! SPELLBOOK FOR THE LOST AND FOUND has that air of magical realism and a touch of mystery, so it was an interesting read! The story overall didn't really catch me a [...]

    24. It’s been a while since I read a book with such a unique writing style (at least one that stood out for me). Spellbook of the Lost and Found is the perfect haunting read to get you in the Halloween spirit.The book follows three characters as they attempt to find what was lost and perhaps find something else in the process. This is honestly a really great cast on its own. There’s diversity for those seeking bisexual representation (though I can’t speak to whether it was done well or not, mi [...]

    25. I went in with lowered expectations after seeing a few disappointed reviews, and as a result I was quite pleased. I think I do still like The Accident Season more, but Spellbook of the Lost and Found was just as magical. I can't wait to read whatever Moïra Fowley-Doyle writes next.

    26. 3.5 STARSI don't even think you can review Fowley-Doyle's books like a normal book, BECAUSE THIS IS THE OPPOSITE OF A NORMAL BOOK.This was such a FUN, ENJOYABLE BOOK. It's a bit weird with coincidences and not knowing what's real and what's not but I enjoyed it nevertheless!Quite a while ago, I picked up The Accident Season and I really enjoyed it. It was so messed up and weird and crazy and creepy and mysterious and I practically fell in love with it. Sadly, I didn't get the same overall FEELs [...]
