Reading progress update: I've read 28%.
The Rules of Magic: A Novel - Alice Hoffman

Perhaps it's that I'm listening to this while driving or because I haven't read "Practical Magic" but the storytelling seems to be at arms-length from the characters.

 

It's as if there's a good plot and a great cast but lousy camera work.

 

I hope it becomes more personal as it moves along.

Breaking the Rules (Inked Hearts) by Crystal Kaswell
Breaking the Rules - Crystal Kaswell

 

 

We have to plow through the ugly to create something beautiful. Breaking the Rules is the roadway to something beautiful. Kaswell takes an unpredictable environment and keeps it real. Emotions are messy. Hearts get broken. Mistakes get made, but it's the heart we risk that can heal us in the end. Love at it's most tragic is when it shows the greatness of it's power. Through empathy and faith love helps us learn to heal.

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.

I hope this gets better. Otherwise, this will be my first DNF since December 2016. :-(
