Book Review

Review: Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman

My Thoughts: I knew going into reading this book that it was going to be very different from the movie version (which I love) but from the very first few pages I immediately fell in love. I of course enjoyed all the magical parts of the book with the spells and the Aunts but I also really liked how real the characters felt. My heart broke for Sally when she lost her husband and I continually rooted for her as she navigated what she deemed “normal life” after taking her girls and moving away. Honestly I thought Hoffman’s storytelling abilities were just magical and I cannot believe it took me this long to read one of her books.

Thanks to Simon and Schuster for sending over a copy of the prequel Rules of Magic. I loved the Aunts in this book so I can’t wait to read more about them!

93A71C02-11E7-4E23-862D-B259F75AB189Book Blurb: For more than two hundred years, the Owens women have been blamed for everything that has gone wrong in their Massachusetts town. Gillian and Sally have endured that fate as well: as children, the sisters were forever outsiders, taunted, talked about, pointed at. Their elderly aunts almost seemed to encourage the whispers of witchery, with their musty house and their exotic concoctions and their crowd of black cats. But all Gillian and Sally wanted was to escape. One will do so by marrying, the other by running away. But the bonds they share will bring them back—almost as if by magic…

I really enjoyed listening to the audio version of this book narrated by Christina Moore, CLICK HERE to purchase that same version from Amazon.
