Despite having read numerous reviews of Garden Spells before I picked it up from my library, I still didn’t know what to expect. In fact, there seems to be an unspoken rule when it comes to this novel that each review must be vague and ambiguous, but after reading the novel, I can confirm that there...

Earlier this year, I read The Girl Who Chased the Moon, and really liked it. I’d been meaning to read some of Sarah Addison Allen’s other books, and then I went on a little mini-binge. Garden Spells was lovely, from the characters to the description of the edible plants, down to the sheer sentence-l...

I liked this book. A lot. As in, when I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about reading it, which to me is the sign of a good book.The southern setting--North Carolina, to be exact--is rendered lushly if a bit idyllically, and the story was well crafted. The magical realism--not usually my thing--wa...

I put off reading this book for a long time because I figured it had to be one of those emotionally manipulative tear jerkers, but the lure of a book with magic and the recommendation of a trusted book-twin had me cracking it open.

I will be the first to admit that I picked up this book solely based on the cover, but after reading the synopsis (above) I couldn't resist picking it up. Now, several months later I finally had a chance to read this book and really enjoyed it!Enchanting is possibly the best word to describe this st...

3.75 Stars Garden Spells is the story of an unusual family with a legacy they can not run away from. Claire became her family name really quickly but it took Sydney ten years of abuse and pain to realize where she belonged. Every character was well developed, it was really interesting how every fam...

I was expecting the "light, relaxing" read so many reviewers mention. Instead the book never made up for the graphic and horrific abuse at its beginning. I guess people who find Not Without My Daughter by Betty Mahmoody a nice, cozy read could expect the same from this. It was so different from my e...
