I feel a bit mixed about this one. I know a lot of people loved it, and it was great writing, but I found myself wishing I would just be done with it.

*This review is based on an advanced reading copy. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a chance to read the book in exchange for an honest review*

I never read Practical Magic, nor have a seen the movie so I'm not exactly sure how this relates or compares. The only experience I have with Hoffman is that I previously read an advanced copy of her book Faithful from Netgalley and absolutely loved it.

I see a trend in her writing (although I haven't read much from her). Both books I have were almost coming of age stories. With that being said, I've been into a lot of fantasy lately so I may just be expecting a bit too much, especially considering this book is about witches. I wish it was less character-driven and more about the magic, but it is what it is.
