The Rules of Magic
The Rules of Magic: A Novel - Alice Hoffman

Months ago, I made a big fuss about this book and how excited I was that I could get my hands on the ARC...and then promptly went silent because I'm lazy like that. I ended up getting the book and reviewing it for Bust.com. I actually struggled with it; it was a good story, yet I think I wanted or expected it to be something it wasn't. I don't know if Practical Magic can be recaptured in a prequel or a sequel or any other method. This link is ancient by internet standards, but in the interest of trying to be an actual blogger again, I guess this as good a place as any to start.

Everyday History
Everyday History - Alice Archer

Title:  Everyday History

Author:  Alice Archer

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press; 1 edition 

Reviewed By:  Arlena Dean

Rating: Five



"Everyday History" by Alice Archer


My Synopsis.."Everyday History" was some read in that it was a very deep thought provoking poetic M/M gay romance story.  The story was well written with highly intriguing characters with such interesting history of a young boys crush on a teacher and the teacher actually falling for this younger man.... Henry and Ruben...the mentor and the student brought together by fate. I know for some that may sound somewhat strange but you really have to pick up this read to see how this author brings it all out to the reader. I was relieved to know that these two didn't actually end up together until Ruben was older.  I saw how the story was of 'letting go of the past and turning something really bad into a source of strength' and from that finding the strength to share with others.  For Ruben there was honesty with a stubborn determination and with Henry ...he was just 'Henry.'  



This novel is a very good read, stunningly well written, with some dramatic emotional scenes and I don't want to leave out Henry's intensely emotional story and lastly with Ruben finally getting his act together.  I will say this author really know to give the readers quite a intriguing story that will definitely pull at your heartstrings.  Once you get into the read it will keep your attention as you will find yourself turning the pages till the end to see if there will be a happy ending!
