Practical Magic
Practical Magic | Alice Hoffman
From the New York Times best-selling author of The Dovekeepers... For more than two hundred years, the Owens women had been blamed for everything that went wrong in their Massachusetts town. And Gillian and Sally endured that fate as well; as children, the sisters were outsiders. Their elderly aunts almost seemed to encourage the whispers of witchery, but all Gillian and Sally wanted was to escape. One would do so by marrying, the other by running away. But the bonds they shared brought them back-almost as if by magic...

For #ominousoctober today I have nothing going on in my life related to campfires… but I am listening to a podcast about practical magic and it got me thinking about how many great, atmospheric fire scenes there are in this movie, which I ABSOLUTELY need to rewatch this week. An all time classic. I should probably reread the book too

My #scarathlon 2022 watch list! I‘m not a horror movie person, but a particular kind of scary is ok. 😂 I was in high school when the first Scream came out and I fell in love with the franchise, so it will be fun to revisit them! I was really bummed to see that the new “Wednesday” TV series doesn‘t come out until 11/23. That‘s not very spooky of you, Netflix. What are you watching this spooky season?

Clwojick The Craft! Yes!!!! 1w

There was a tossup for todays letter between Piranesi(fabulous recent surreal book), Post Mortem(the 1st Scarpetta novel before they imploded) & the tagged book, well the whole series really. Totally different than the movie but just as magical & even more whimsical & just a bit dark. Love all of the characters. Especially the aunts.

So I was reading this all day today got to page 158/159 and found a pressed 4 leaf clover that I definitely did not put in here 😍

This book was beautiful, a bit of a slow start. But when Sally and Gillian come together it was quite magical. 4.5⭐️ #botm

Still making my way through my September reviews…

Despite being a raging witch myself and a fan of several of Hoffman‘s books, until recently I had not read this book (still haven‘t seen the movie). Happy to report that I loved the audiobook. Hoffman‘s storytelling is magical, and I loved the Owens sisters and the aunts. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

This was my #AAM for September as well!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

monalyisha So exciting! I can‘t wait for you to see the movie. They‘re different — but I love them both equally. 🖤 11mo
sprainedbrain @monalyisha I adore the cast (especially Nicole Kidman) so the only reason I haven‘t seen it is my ridiculous book-before-movie rule, which has been in place since I was in high school. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 11mo
monalyisha I totally watched it before I read the book — many, many years before. I used to watch it every Friday the 13th (along with Bell, Book, & Candle) with my bff & her fam. 11mo

I have always liked this book (and LOVED the movie!) but rereading it in chronological order with the rest of the series, made me like it more. Now that it is a part of a series and I have read more about where this story fits within the Owens timeline, I appreciate these characters in a different way. On to the newest addition…

Mixed feelings with this one. I enjoyed the different stories about these three sisters narrated in the book but in my opinion, they were not well integrated like a whole story. But I‘m intrigued and want to read the second book and the whole series. I enjoyed the movie adaptation. It was different, more spooky. I still think is better to read the book first even when I liked the movie better. 3.5That cover😍

Decided to do this for the #screamathon week 1 Scare Pairs challenge! This book was...not what I was expecting? It just felt kind of slow and hazy, I couldn't quite get into it. Can't believe I'm saying this, but the movie is better. Who doesn't love a good midnight margarita party and some solid 90s fashion?

Does anyone know what order I should read these in?? 🤔 Amazon and Goodreads aren‘t very helpful with their 0.1 etc order?! Or are they stand alone and it‘s doesn‘t really matter?? 🧐

Johanna414 I've only read Practical Magic and Magic Lessons, but they felt kind of like stand alone stories that had minor references to characters from the other books. I would read them in publication order 12mo
mcctrish I read somewhere that the published order ( that‘s what I read them in; Practical, Rules of, Magic lessons) is not the same as chronological ( time for a reread) : Magic Lessons, Rules of Magic, Practical Magic. Granted I only read the first 2 and there is a 4th Book of Magic 12mo
BookwormAHN I just read them in chronological order: Magic Lessons, Rules of Magic and then Practical Magic. The first two are the best. 12mo
mdm139 They explore the history of Owens family. So if you want to start at the beginning, start with Magic Lessons(my favorite one). Book 4 comes out October 12 which is also the last book chronological. So if you want to start at the end, wait until book 4 comes out. 12mo
Caroline2 @mcctrish @Johanna414 @BookwormAHN @mdm139 Thanks guys! 😀 I already have Magic Lessons so I‘ll start with that one first and go for chronological order. 👍 12mo

This is sure to disappoint many of you, but this is a bail for me. 😔 I don't enjoy any of the characters - at all - and that's required for me to stick with a book. Don't take this to mean that the characters have to be likeable - I love a good dysfunctional family story. But I just didn't enjoy spending time with any of these characters. Sorry, Ms. Hoffman. Just not for me. #Authoramonth @Soubhiville

My dear Littens, I may be ostracized for this but...

The movie is better.

This audiobook felt like a slog of summary and not much actually happening. I didn't feel the familial comfort and closeness in the book that I got from the movie. And I literally have only seen the movie once about 10 years ago. That was enough. There really wasn't much magic or intrigue and I don't think I care enough to read the prequel or sequel. ⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I was hoping to find more to like in the story, but I saw it as a stream of over-summarization linking a few key scenes.

nichollinlove I'm with you and @bookwormAH. I read The Rules of Magic first and that probably saved the whole series for me. I'm really glad I didn't start with PM, I wouldn't have picked up another and I would have missed out! 12mo
Sargar114 I‘ve never seen the movies, but I agree with others that the prequel (I‘ve only read The Rules of Magic) was much more enjoyable. I also have Magic Lessons on my shelf to read. 12mo
TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! I had one Hoffman book on my TBR that I tried to read this month & it just wasn't really for me. 12mo
5feet.of.fury I haven‘t read it, but I watched the movie last year for probably the first time in a decade and was like “I don‘t think this movie is good, I think I just want midnight margaritas” 12mo
Bookzombie I agree with your review. I haven‘t seen the movie in ages and I‘m worried it won‘t hold up to my memory. 🙂 12mo
MidnightBookGirl So, I first read this book right after seeing the movie and it was a let down. But I re-read it a year or so ago in preparation for the other Owen novels coming out and liked it a lot better... but I agree, the movie is better, and I have watched it so many times. I just consider the book and movie as two separate things. 12mo
BkClubCare Oooooo! I love to do book to film challenges for myself. And I like when people say the movie better. Might have to move this duo up my list. 12mo

Okay, so this may be a rare time when the movie is better than the book. The book was good but with the newer prequels there were some annoying inconsistencies. This is the story of Sally and Gillian and Sally's daughters Antonia and Kylie and what happens one night when Gillian shows up with the body of her dead husband.

Despite reading about everyone‘s disappointment in this book, I really enjoyed it and as much as I liked Rules of Magic. Maybe because I read the prequel first? In this one, 2 nieces come to live at the witch house as tiny little girls, we watch them grow, “escape,” make mistakes, and come to discover the aunt-witches are pretty wonderful people who can solve a pretty nasty problem. I look forward to watching the movie soon! #authoramonth

ShyBookOwl I have a feeling that ppl's disappointment in this one comes from expectations set up by the movie, which has such a different vibe.
