Book Review: “The Rules of Magic” by Alice Hoffman

★★★★★ This was such a great prequel to Practical Magic. I have only seen the movie and have yet to read the book.

Susan Fair has a great sense of humor and looks at the events of the past with a skeptical and sarcastic lens.

Book Review: “Hamilton” by Ron Chernow

I don't want to go into too much detail here, don't want to spoil it for you (haha it's history! Can't be spoiled.) This book was 731 pages long in Kindle form and it sure felt like it. It took me two and a half months to read it but man, was it the most thorough and extensive biography!
