I found this true story engrossing & liked the way the narrative progressed. It drew me in & I felt a range of emotions as we saw the developments that occured with the clients that lived at Walden House. This is a story of hope, positivity, true determination & grit!

I enjoyed the discoveries the author made on her quest to become happier as she incorporated different themes throughout each month to help her with her goal.

The book talks about her experiences & her observations which helped me examine my own life & incorporate some small ways to become a little happier myself!

The audio performance by Jim Dale in the Harry Potter series is absolutely amazing & it keeps the beloved story of Harry discovering he is a wizard very engaging.

I love this story very much & it will always remain one of my favourites!

Growing up, Magic & Cursed in Love?

I enjoyed this story of 3 siblings & the story of how they grew up during the 1950s to the 1970s with some magical twists. This is a prequel to the book "Practical Magic" and it tells the stories of the aunts & their brother as they grew up.

The story asks if the Owens are really cursed when it comes to love & explores the theme of love, familial & romantic. I thought the narrator did a good job.

Although I found some of the characters decisions frustrating at times, I really enjoyed this story about the bonds of family, magic & love.

I enjoyed this book & the story of two sisters whose lives have been affected by magic & mystery. This is a rare example where I enjoyed the movie more than the book! I must admit I saw the movie first though & that might have coloured my perception.

The writing is still good though as weaves the tale of very different sisters & their family along with a bit of a magical murder mystery. I did not enjoy the narration as much as I have in other books. Overall a diverting tale that kept me engaged throughout & a fun story.

I really enjoyed this book. The story of how this man found his way to meditation & mindfulness was captivating & laugh out loud funny at various points.

The narrator was charming & I really enjoyed how down to Earth the author was in his quest to find some serenity. I definitely recommend this book, especially to spiritual skeptics who might want to know more about meditation without being put into a spiritual or religious box!
