Hello and welcome to another Goodreads Monday!

This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners and it invites you to pick a book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it. Easy peasy!

I have a huge “want to read” list on goodreads at the moment so ill be using a random number generator to pick one from the list to talk about. So without further ado….

The magic number is 215! Which means that the featured book this week is Magic Lessons by Alice Hoffman. Currently rated 4.21 based on over 21000 reviews and was  published in October 2020.

In an unforgettable novel that traces a centuries-old curse to its source, beloved author Alice Hoffman unveils the story of Maria Owens, accused of witchcraft in Salem, and matriarch of a line of the amazing Owens women and men featured in Practical Magic and The Rules of Magic.

Where does the story of the Owens bloodline begin? With Maria Owens, in the 1600s, when she’s abandoned in a snowy field in rural England as a baby. Under the care of Hannah Owens, Maria learns about the “Nameless Arts.” Hannah recognizes that Maria has a gift and she teaches the girl all she knows. It is here that she learns her first important lesson: Always love someone who will love you back.

When Maria is abandoned by the man who has declared his love for her, she follows him to Salem, Massachusetts. Here she invokes the curse that will haunt her family. And it’s here that she learns the rules of magic and the lesson that she will carry with her for the rest of her life. Love is the only thing that matters.

Magic Lessons is a celebration of life and love and a showcase of Alice Hoffman’s masterful storytelling.

 

Why do I want to read it?

Okay, so I have absolutely no idea how this book ended up on my TBR as it is a prequel to a book series that I have never read! I have kept it though because it actually sounds brilliant. Is there anyone out there who has read this? Is this a series where you could begin with the prequel or are you better off reading book one and two first and then coming back to this?

 

Have you read The Teacher? Do you have it on your TBR as well? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! ♥
