Book of Magic | Alice Hoffman
10 posts | 8 read | 19 to read
Master storyteller Alice Hoffman brings us the conclusion of the Practical Magic series in a spellbinding and enchanting final Owens novel brimming with lyric beauty and vivid characters. The Owens family has been cursed in matters of love for over three-hundred years but all of that is about to change. The novel begins in a library, the best place for a story to be conjured, when beloved aunt Jet Owens hears the deathwatch beetle and knows she has only seven days to live. Jet is not the only one in danger--the curse is already at work. A frantic attempt to save a young man's life spurs three generations of the Owens women, and one long-lost brother, to use their unusual gifts to break the curse as they travel from Paris to London to the English countryside where their ancestor Maria Owens first practiced the Unnamed Art. The younger generation discovers secrets that have been hidden from them in matters of both magic and love by Sally, their fiercely protective mother. As Kylie Owens uncovers the truth about who she is and what her own dark powers are, her aunt Franny comes to understand that she is ready to sacrifice everything for her family, and Sally Owens realizes that she is willing to give up everything for love. The Book of Magic is a breathtaking conclusion that celebrates mothers and daughters, sisters and brothers, and anyone who has ever been in love.

Sometimes a book series just pulls you in a makes you one of the family!! Alice Hoffmans practical magic series is such a great series. Witches, love, curses, and more!! Sooo good and I‘m sad it‘s done .. 🥰😢👩🏼‍🌾🧙🏼‍♀️

“Some stories start at the beginning and others start at the end, but all the best stories begin in a library.”

I wanted something witchy for Halloween and this book was of course the perfect thing. It is technically book #2 of the four Practical Magic books but published last and pulls all the women together - from the very first Owens woman to be called a witch!

It makes me wish for a Practical Magic cookbook!

I'm not sure this book is as good if you haven't read the others but satisfying for me!

I agree with the other reviewers who have noted that this one sags a bit in the middle, but since I was so reluctant to say goodbye to the Owens family, I didn‘t really mind. A lovely ending to a lovely series. I‘ll miss these characters, so it‘s a good thing they live in my books and I can visit anytime.

Book is pictured with my beloved Cherry Doc Martens. I also have grey eyes, so I‘m pretty sure I‘m in the Owens family tree somewhere.

DivineDiana They are beauties! 1y
LeahBergen Love those Docs!! ❤️ 1y
Readergrrl I have those exact same Docs!!! Love them!! 1y
mklong @DivineDiana @LeahBergen @Readergrrl Thank you!! Mine are the “Vegan” ones and it‘s a little more subtle red than the regular ones. Every time I wear them, at least one stranger asks where I got them 1y
Cathythoughts Great picture 👍🏻❤️ 1y

A fitting conclusion to this series. Really sad to see it end, and I would warn future readers to read it with a box of tissues. 365 pts #teamhendrix #scarathlon @StayCurious @4thhouseontheleft #screamathon #wickedathon #spookoween #outstandingoctober

I was going to pause my account for a bit because I have over 40 books on my tbr just from BoTM, but then I saw the new Hoffman and had to have it early. I have no will power or self control.

Just saw this on Goodreads. I‘d bet it‘ll be a #BoTM as well. I own but haven‘t read this series but it is definitely moving up the list

JenlovesJT47 Yay!! I‘m so excited! I loved Practical Magic when I finally read it last year and the prequel was great as well. Still haven‘t read the other prequel that goes way back because I‘ve been saving it - didn‘t want the series to be over yet. So now I can finally crack that one open soon. I love her writing style. 🤗 1y
DogEaredBooks @JenlovesJT47 I‘m excited for you! I haven‘t read them yet but they are on my list. And I love it when I good series gets more books (even if my tbr might tip over 1000)! 1y
