    One thought on “Strange Luck”

    1. Happy memories, our greatest treasures, we all have them, we all sort through them and they make us feel good. What if your memories could be stolen? What if you could forget the most important people and events in your life? What if you forgot you LOVED your favorite candy? GAH! That is just what is happening in a place called Nameless, because one dark soul is looking for the best memory ever and it is stealing them from its victims. What if, like Daisy, you learned that Nameless was a real pl [...]

    2. This book grabbed my attention from the beginning. I loved the shop, Strange Luck, where is begins. And then Winters take you on a wild ride full of talking ducks, wizards, fairies and more! The book is full of strange settings and the adventure is such fun. A great story with fantastic writing. Here are just a few quotes that I loved. "There's just nothing more frustrating than not being able to find something that's right in front of you." "Most people aren't with their situation and are alway [...]

    3. The first page was intriguing, the writing setting the mood and leaving me with the initial impression that this was going to be a fantastic read. That mood was broken on the second page when Daisy countered it with a modern, slightly slang phrase (“…so this guy was certainly pushing it”). It was disappointing, as the magical mysterious aura continued to be upset with Daisy’s verbalizations. Another descriptive passage that I thought worked well: “But on most days – like this one – [...]

    4. An enjoyable story featuring a young and likeable pair of main characters, magic, danger, adventure and some interesting twists. It reminded me of the Wizard of Oz.

    5. Strange Luck is a fabulous, fantastical mix of magic and imagination, exploration and uncertainty. There are lots of great YA elements - first love, first time traveling, self-discovery - but what I loved the most was the seriously enjoyable visitation to childhood wonderment. What better way to get to a magical paradise than by digging through a pile of bigger and bigger toys? Through the main character, Daisy Daring, we get to meet a wizard, become a fairy, have a discussion with a talking duc [...]

    6. Memories are a powerful thing and to a certain degree our greatest treasures. Think about it, what is life but an accumulation of experiences. That first kiss, that warm summer day where everything flowed perfectly, that candy that takes you directly to the brightest spot in your trail in this life. Within the pages of the book of the same title, Strange Luck is a lovely antique shop of oddities that gives home to a variety of haunted (or at least reportedly haunted) pieces to entice people who [...]

    7. Strange Luck is a delightful morality tale with those age-old themes of the grass is always greener on the other side and you don't know what you have until it's gone, all wrapped up in a Wizard of Oz-like story but on a much smaller scale.Strange Luck is a Young Adult Fantasy, but the main characters, Daisy and Roger, are in their late teens and on the verge of adult life and faced with adult choices. Their budding romance isn't mushy and doesn't overshadow the main themes and action of the sto [...]

    8. I seriously loved this book and am so glad I found out about it through a friend. I haven't read such an original book is quite some time and from the very first chapter I was hooked. I loved her writing style and felt like I could perfectly picture everything in my mind as I read. I loved all of the magical components and whimsical characters, and of course, the protag - Daisy. This book had me on the edge of my seat the entire time and I couldn't wait to figure out what was going to happen. I [...]

    9. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book. I thought that it was interesting, and had a different concept. I enjoyed the little back story about the objects in the shop and the psychological factor of the book and how important memories are to the story. It is a quick and easy read, with a light tone to it. The main issue I had with it was the dialogue because it felt a little more juvenile than it should have been. I don't think that deterred fr [...]

    10. I have never read books about this type of adventure. I usually read love stories. This one is more fantasy and very well written! I was taken away with this bookI absolutely loved it and couldn't wait to finish this one to start the next one. I loved how well written the book was and how the writer explained through the whole book of what the story was about! Great book and writer! I read the second one to this and read it quicker then the first one and can't wait to read the 3rd bookLOVED THE [...]

    11. A dark Alice in Wonderland! What drew me to Strange Luck was the cover and then the description. As a reader, I love any book that can pull me in on page one and keep me turning pages. Strange Luck is definitely such a tale and as someone who grew up in a part of the country where every old house has a ghost, the idea of a shop entirely devoted to "haunted" items enticed me.Daisy, Strange Luck's main character, is a skeptic of all things haunted and full of the usual small-town-girl-needs-to-esc [...]

    12. Have you ever been wrapped up in your own thoughts, dreams, goals, and ambitions that the world around you seemed to disappear for what seemed like forever? Have you ever wanted to help someone so much that you were willing to do anything in your own power to help that person? Have you ever been so consumed by your own memories that the world around you seemed to change? Well, that is what this book is all about. The story is told by a girl named Daisy who has a lot going on in her life at the y [...]

    13. This review is also posted on my blog: loveserially.wordpressI received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The second book in the series is The Nightmare Birds and I will be posting a separate review once I have finished reading that book.Overall Rating: 4Quick Summary: Daisy Darling has spent her life listening to far-fetched stories in her father’s shop Strange Luck. Specializing in the mythical, mystical and mysterious, Daisy has enough material to pursue her dream o [...]

    14. Daisy is not happy. What she wants more than anything it to travel the world and be a writer. Instead, due to her father’s failing health, she must take over the family business, a curio shop for strange, haunted and paranormal items. Not only would she rather be anywhere else, but she just doesn't believe in the supernatural. She must test that disbelief when she comes across an old map of a Utopian paradise that may lead to cure for her father. She and her best friend, Roger, set out to find [...]

    15. Daisy works at her families store Strange Luck, where they purchase oddities with great stories. But she doesn’t believe in any of it and doesn’t want to be stuck there. But one of the items will have Daisy going on a quest to help her sick father. Her best friend Roger goes along to help and protect her. They find themselves in a land ruled by a wizard that is stealing people’s memories. Without any way out it looks like Daisy ad Roger are going to be the next victims of the wizard as the [...]

    16. Dive into Utopia and unleash the power of your imagination!If you like to imagine how it would be to live for a few hours in a world that is full of magic, fantasy, surprising creatures, whimsical natural environments, love in the air and mystery that seems impossible to be solved, then Strange Luck is the right book for you! It is not only very entertaining, but it gives your mind a break from this ordinary life to enter in a complete parallel world where you are a witness of two very enthusias [...]

    17. Daisy Darling wants nothing more than to leave the town of Sea Salt and her family's oddity shop, Strange Luck, behind. Travel the world and study to become a writer. She has an imagination that knows no bounds, but even she can't bring herself to believe the tales spun about the store she would be forced to run. It was said every item within had Supernatural secrets, from ravens that spoke in riddles to more dangerous curiosities. Quite simply Daisy Darling did not believe. But something was ab [...]

    18. "Strange Luck" by Aime Irene Winters was a very intriguing read! I really didn't know what to expect when I first started the novel, but I was enraptured by the well-developed characters, and the character-driven plot. There were a few times in the story that I thought the "luck" to the characters was a little too convenient, but then again - the novel is called "Strange Luck!" Ms. Winters did a great job writing a novel that grabs the attention of the reader and keeps it so throughout the entir [...]

    19. I came across this story after looking for something similar to the Shades of Magic series, and I was not disappointed.I found Strange Luck completely addicting, the concept unique, and the pacing perfect. My favorite parts took place in the oddities shop and coming across all the weird and magical items that people brought in. I also loved the scenes in the Nameless. I lived for the scenes with the entity and Daisy. I want to visit both places! This was truly a great book. Highly recommended if [...]

    20. This book is amazing! The story draws you in to a world of scary wizards, beautiful imaginary landscapes, and psychological challenges. The heroine of the story, Daisy Darling, has to use the power of her mind, rather than brute force, to conquer the evil overlord and save life as she knows it. It's an incredibly imaginative and accomplished story. I can hardly believe this is Winters' first novel. I'll certainly be watching for more books by this author.

    21. Strange Luck is a beautifully written piece that will take you into a captivating world of fascinating creatures and daring adventures in a mystical land. Like so many other stories it causes us to stop and think about what else could be out there in the strange, wide world--but with a definite emphasis on the importance of dreams and memories. Overall, a beautiful work and I can't wait to start reading the next installment!

    22. I really enjoyed this book. I wasn't sure what to expect at first as I didn't read the blurb before starting. You really feel as if you are in Daisy's world and I experienced her emotions as she did. Through the use of imagery, you really feel that you are there in the moment. Even though Daisy is 18 in the book I sometimes felt that she was younger by the way Amie wrote about certain experiences and thoughts.I would recommend this book more for Young Adults.

    23. I loved this book. I simply couldn't put it down!If you like Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland than this is the book for you. It's very engaging, entertaining, and at times thought-provoking. I heard that she's working on the next book in the Strange Luck series. I'm DYING to read it!!! I'm the meantime, I highly recommend you check it out.

    24. There's a new kid on the block. This story is unlike anything I've ever read. If you're tired of the same boring YA/Fantasy/Other Realm/Magic books, then this is the book for you. I read it in 2 days! Love love loved it!

    25. One of the better YA books I've read. Reminds me of The Maze Runner meets Through the Looking Glass. Fun read.

    26. A fantastic story. Miss Winters has woven a tale that will enthrall readers and leave them begging for more. She has filled her world with compelling characters, particularly the protagonist Daisy, who we found ourselves identifying with better than many protagonists as of late. She is clever and easy to project onto but is not without her peculiarities. The fast pace of this tale keeps you going, and Miss Winters will always have you wondering what will happen next. Though the core of the story [...]

    27. First, beautiful cover. I feel like it fits the playful, whimsical, slightly mysterious tone of the story. Second, I loved the complex and unique use of memories. It was a great way to shape the fantastical world Daisy finds herself in, and it was a neat way to bring so many fantastical elements together – in a world of happy memories and dreams, anything goes! The danger of Daisy losing memories added a great sense of tension. Her romantic partnership with her best friend Roger was also belie [...]
