    1. This was such a fun book!!!!! and it was obviously pretty good in my eyes, seeing as how I told myself I'd put it down at midnight and it's now almost 530 in the morningI'm so excited to get on the 2nd book (after a much needed napnce I have to be up in 3 hours.woot) the author has done a great job creating this world that is the same as in her other series but is also incredibly different because of the POV. The first series was the messengers and guardians. is is the view from the witches. I l [...]

    2. Solid 4 starsAfter reading Ms. Falter's Guardian trilogy, which I thoroughly enjoyed (and have since re-read), I was looking forward to seeing what she'd come up with next. Okay, and if I'm being honest, I wasn't expecting to be as enamored with Jocelyn and Jameson and their adventure as I was with Maggie and Eran, because well, it's hard enough to create a winning combo once, let alone twice. But you know what? I am. I'm just a little bit in love with this new series. Really, Residue is a fanta [...]

    3. What can I say about this book? That I absolutely love it? That I can't get enough of it? Yes & Yes!Laury Falter definitely doesn't disappoint. She has done it again! I am a big fan of her Guardian Trilogy and fell in love with Maggie & Eran (especially Eran)!!!Usually I know within the first couple of chapters if I'm going to like a book, love a book, or adore a book. With this one, it was ALL three of them. YES! That good.I love how Jameson & Jocelyn were introduced. That was prett [...]

    4. I really didn't expect this book to be that good. Full review later. Will do one for my blog first. ;)REVIEWI still can’t believe that this book would be good. After three chapters in, I suddenly thought “this is a Romeo and Juliet retelling”. I was, I admit, disappointed when I come into that conclusion. Let me explain as to WHY. First, I am NOT a fan of Romeo and Juliet love story. Second, their families are so RIDICULOUS. Third, the way they die is so ABSURD. I hate it. >:( Ugh. BUT, [...]

    5. First I have to say that I love stories focusing around New Orleans and Witch Craft. New Orleans has such a rich cultural background and a history of all kinds of witch craft and voodoo that it intrigues me every time I read a story about it. Residue was no different for me and this is going to be a series I will read and re-read for years to come. It just grabs you into a new world and life that it will keep you on the edge of the seat.Jocelyn is away at boarding school when she is told that sh [...]

    6. Review from busymomsbookreviewsThis book starts with a girl named Jocelyn being moved from New York to New Orleans and finding out that she is a witch. The first day there she is sent to go get her school supplies and while she is shopping she meets Jameson. Even though there families hate each other due to various grievances done to both sides, they still like each other. Problems arise and the fighting escalates, at the same time other people who govern the witches start to invadeNew Orleansan [...]

    7. This was an amazing read! Residue was everything I'd hoped for after reading the Guardian Series. Another great beginning to a love story along with the suspense and action. It was difficult to put this one down! There were parts that made me cry- happy parts and sad. I love Jocelyn's journey and the love that grows with Jameson as she finds out who she is and where she fits in. I can't wait for the next one!

    8. Residue by Laury FalterResidue Series #1Source: AuthorMy Rating: 4½/5 starsJocelyn Weatherford is exactly like her classmates: she is a member of a privileged family; she attends a private preparatory academy and; only sees her mother on school holidays. For Jocelyn every day is the same: get up, go to class, do her homework, break some rules with her friends. This is the life Jocelyn knows and is accustomed too; unfortunately, it is a complete and utter lie. Everything, and I do mean everythin [...]

    9. Residue has a magic that is all its own. The draw is really in the Romeo and Juliet storyline mixed with magic. The Weatherford and The Caldwell are their own version of the Montague and Capulet of the world of magic. Jocelyn Weatherford who knew nothing about magic or her family feud until she landed in New Orleans finds herself right in the middle of an age old feud between two powerful magical families when she starts to fall for the handsome Jameson Caldwell. There is always a certain draw t [...]

    10. I must say, I originally only started this series because it was mentioned that Maggie and Eran from the Guardian trilogy were going to make an appearance. But then I read Residue, and now I'm hooked on the series for the series itself (of course that doesn't mean that at 1:30 in the morning when Eran and Maggie showed up in Birthright I didn't freak out and fall over on my bed making inhuman noises of happiness, but still). This book series has an interesting story line that I personally haven' [...]

    11. ok I did not think I would like this book because it kind of started off slow and I wasn't into it but I kept reading and my mind changed. I couldn't put the book down. I initially was going to give this book a three then as I started getting into it I gave it a four but by the end of the book I decided on a five because I didn't sleep until I finished it and the ending left me wanting more! I definitely will be reading the rest of this series! (Full Review Coming Soon)

    12. I was very intrigued to read this book after coming across this but it was not that much to my expectations.It was ok not bad or great.

    13. Interesting To be able to create a whole new story that intertwined with a completely different storyline is impressive. Not only was it completely it's own, it was incredibly imaginative. I didn't love it as much as fallen (Maggie and Eran's story is hard to compete with!) but I still enjoyed it. I'm not a fan of witches or voodoo stories but I love this author & gave this book a go. I'm happy I did because as usual she delivered a wonderfully written book. I really enjoyed this book & [...]

    14. Romeo and Juliet Spin offThe ending was a bit surprising. After reading the Guardian series I fell in love with Laury Falter's works. I was expecting the main character to be this defiant, strong character but the uniqueness of tying her to the male lead is new to me. Such as Maggie was the focus of the books with Erin supporting her. This is a tie off. I love it.

    15. In a word: a romantic and charming tale of witchcraft, secrets, star-crossed lovers and family rivalries.I could tell from the gorgeous and sultry cover of Residue that this story about witchcraft in New Orleans was going to be good, and it was. Falter has brought together an unusual mixture of storytelling elements that somehow work well together. Residue is the first in the series, and although there is some sense of closure at the end of the book, readers are going to want to get the next boo [...]

    16. "Then she countered by delivering the news that would change my life forever. “Jocelyn,” she said her tone steady and calculated. “You are in danger.”"The fact that pretty quickly it's seems that we deal with a shared, but so impossible love make me very curious to see what the author had to offer. If she’ll manage to bring something special, not just on the story’s originality, but also regarding the feelings that she wants to awake to the reader. To my pleasure, Laury Falter did ve [...]

    17. "Jocelyn." He waited for me to turn to and face him. "I'm sorry for not disclosing who I am. That was wrong - but I don't regret it. It gave me a little more time with you before we had to face reality."I nodded and he started down the opposite end of the hallway. Then I stopped him."Jameson." I hesitated, wondering if I'd regret my next words. They seemed so simple but carried such weight. "I'm glad you waited."Oh how I keep going back to this. I read it, reread it, three, four times and every [...]

    18. 3.75 STARSThis book starts out with interesting events right from the beginning, as Jocelyn Weatherford sees a scar weirdly appear on her arm in the middle of class short order she is told she's descended from a long line of witches and is shipped off to New Orleans to meet the family she never knew was magical.Jocelyn also meets Jameson Caldwell, with whom she has an immediate spark, only to have it crushed when she learns he's a member of a family hers has been feuding with for generations. De [...]

    19. Romeo and Juliet on stereoids. That's an easy way to sum up this book.When they initially meet, Jocelyn and Jameson do not know the other is a member of their archenemy's family - very Rome and Juliet-esque. Jameson does find out during this encounter but Jocelyn doesn't find out until she gets to school the next day. Speaking of school, I like that the author incorporated two schools: A normal high school and a once a week magic school for those who possess magic.After a near battle at magic sc [...]

    20. Jocelyn, a young girl coming of age is suddenly thrust into a world that she doesn’t quite know exists. She doesn’t know that her family comes from a long line of powerful witches. After being sent away at a young age to be cared for at a boarding school Jocelyn is your average run of the mill teenager. She is quite extraordinary despite her beliefs. She is a Weatherford and this makes her anything but ordinary. Jameson Caldwell is a high school student as well as a student of mystical thing [...]

    21. Did I enjoy this book: This book was alright.The beginning was rather slow. The middle got a bit more interesting. But it took half of the book before we found out the significance of the title, Residue. The end wasn’t bad. The last 40% of this book moved a bit more than the beginning.I liked Jocelyn. She was strong, stubborn, and she was not a pushover. I really liked the fact that she didn’t just accept everything about her new life, her new world. It took quite a while for her to come to [...]

    22. AHHHHHNOOOOOIT'S OVER? I JUSTIT JUSTNOI CAN'T AFFORD MORE BOOKS AND I OWE MONEY ON MY LIBRARY CARD SO I CAN'T RENEW ITWHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY*aHM*Sorry. True rating 4.9, not a five because of the number of times I scoffed at Jocelyn, rolled my eyes at Jocelyn, and starting humming Taylor Swift songs because of Jocelyn. Don't get me wrong! Love the book. Love it. Jocelyn's not bad. I just personally disagree with some of her decisions. So, fated lovers, [...]

    23. "Two households, both alike in dignityIn fair Verona, where we lay our scene . . . "Wait!! Wrong story! But . . .if Shakespeare had written his romantic tragedy about witches, it would have been Residue! The Romeo and Juliet of Laury Falter's story are Jameson and Jocelyn, who are 'fated lovers' but from the feuding witch families of the Caldwells and the Weatherfords.Initially I was reluctant to trust Jocelyn, but I think this was because she had no understanding of her circumstances and was aw [...]

    24. Having read and loved some of the books in Laury’s Guardian series I was really excited to read another one of her series’. This is a Romeo and Juliet style tale of forbidden love and feuding families with a magical twist.I loved the start of the book as we were instantly thrown into the story. From Jocelyn discovering that there is more to her family than she would have ever guessed to the very end and the final moment, this book never once gets boring. There is action, mystery, magic, roma [...]

    25. 3.5 hearts Residue is the first book in a series, besides the beautiful cover, it has a plot that was engaging. Jocelyn is a young girl that has had her world turned upside down, packed up and shipped off to live with family that she really doesn’t know. That’s not all that happens to her though, she is being told that she is a witch. Something she certainly want to believe. Jocelyn was head strong girl that’s for sure, and I really did like her spunk.Jameson is every young girl wants from [...]

    26. Laury Falter does not disappoint. Residue grabbed my attention instantly. After her successful series Guardian Trilogy she followed through once again. This book is about war between families, betrayal, forbidden love and witchcraft.Sixteen year old Jocelyn Weatherford is being removed from the only home she has known. Though confused and angry she finds comfort in learning that her mother approved her departure from the Academy in Upstate NY to be with her family in New Orleans. Jocelyn loves h [...]

    27. Residue was a cute and fun young adult read. I loved the characters and the mythology behind a society of witches living in New Orleans.The beginning of Residue was great. The reader got to learn all about Jocelyn’s heritage as a witch at the same time she does. The world building was fabulous and I felt myself transported to this school for the supernatural in New Orleans.Jocelyn and Jameson were fantastic characters. I loved Jocelyn’s spunky side and her ability to stand up for herself. Ja [...]

    28. I enjoyed Residue for all the things I love to see in a good book, paranormal, young adult, amazing characters, and mystery. This book lured me in from the beginning, learning about Jocelyn and her background as a witch. I fell into her shoes and world easily.The dangers that await Jocelyn Weatherford as she falls for a handsome Caldwell is unspeakable. The two families have been feuding for centuries and to cross that line is quite dangerous. Jocelyn was quite a character, strong and with spunk [...]
