I'm a bookworm of the highest caliber! If you see me, I'll probably be reading. There's nothing I love more than finding a good book, and then sharing it with the world!

Oh, I LOVED this.

The Rules of Magic: A Novel - Alice Hoffman

What is about Alice Hoffman? Seriously? It's like everything that she writes is pure magic, and I can't ever feel my own sadness or my own anxiety when I listen to/read her books. I didn't even realize that this book existed until someone was kind enough to put it on the recommendation list for the "Spellbound" square and, even then, I didn't know it was a prequel to Practical Magic. Which, I should state, is one of my favorite books ever.

 

*happy sigh*

 

This book is beautiful. It's equal parts heartbreaking and uplifting. True to all of Alice Hoffman's books, it's full of the kind of magic that feels like it could be right at your fingertips if you only deigned to notice. I LOVED it.
