Everyday Enchantments: Musings on Ordinary Magic & Daily Conjurings
By Maria DeBlassie

Everyday Enchantments: Musings on Ordinary Magic & Daily Conjurings is my first book by Maria DeBlassie. To be honest I was not sure what to expect and I am also not sure this book was for me.
On saying that this review will be on the writing style of the author. What we have here is reflections on the magic that can be found in life. This book has been written in such a way that in most cases you feel part of the story. I did find that in some parts of the book it did have me thinking that we need to take time for ourselves. While I was not totally into this book there will be those of you out there that will absolutely love this book.

This is a whole new level of reading for me, more of a self guided tour of one’s own mind and self reflection of your own musings and wandering of the mind. I found myself thinking a lot about everyday perspective and how this book would actually as some points be actually what your were thinking.

A brilliant guide into the depth of self joy to both writer and reader.

Everyday Enchantments: Musings on Ordinary Magic & Daily Conjurings by Maria DeBlassie is a collection of Essays that were created on a blog. I have never read any of her blog posts before but I enjoyed this book and would definitely read any other thoughts she decided to write down. It’s different then reading a book for sure but it was still quite fun and entertaining. It is a very descriptive look at the author’s life. I would rate 4 stars!

This book is a breakaway from my normal genre. I really like that while it’s a ‘book’ it doesn’t necessarily have to be read cover to cover. You can use this as a daily inspirational/meditative guide to remember that life is short so look for the good in everyday, because it really is there. Each short daily entry is very well written with incredible imagery. It captured all 5 senses and I felt like I was right there with her during each daily entry. Well done. 4 stars.

Everyday Enchantments by Maria DeBlassie a four-star read that will leave you musing. This wasn’t what I was expecting when I picked it up, it’s a collection of writings, some better than others, but I am sure you ill find some that will call to you in them. There are musings on many subjects in this and you will be sure to find some that will appeal.

This isn’t a story but instead short individual thoughts and well…musings, like the title indicates. DeBlassie helps you take a different look at the world around you. At the world you live in. A way to look at life that you might not have looked at before. Sometimes the musings were as simple as cooking breakfast but then lead to a deeper feeling of better health, maybe even an awakening after a bout of depression. A feeling of being in a rut but then climbing out of that rut.

Each musing is a little different. With titles like “Let Me Be”, “Cruising to Work”, and “Confessions of a Flower Eater”, you never really know what you’re going to get.

I recommend this book if you are looking for “everyday enchantments”.

Everyday Enchantments: Musings on Ordinary Magic & Daily Conjurings by Maria DeBlassie is a four star novel. When I first started this book, I had no clue what it was going to be about. I hate reading the descriptions of books for fear of disappointment so I survive and choose books based on covers, friends telling me about it or a book blog recommendation. That is how I happened upon this book. I did not expect to be tasked on a journey through the author’s life and how she could find happiness in everything she was doing. Magic, or belief, helps us to move through life with good intentions and good spirits. I liked how the author was able to find joy and happiness in nearly everything she came into contact with.

by Maria F. DeBlassie

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading this book, but I found it to be original, enriching, and fulfilling. This book makes every day life better, I found myself going back and reading passages that spoke to me on a deeper level. I feel like my review can’t really do this book justice because it reaches your soul in ways that are hard to explain. This book is very rich in detail and It changed the way I see everyday mundane things for the better. This is truly a gem. I highly recommend this book.

This is so so different than any other book ive read, but in a great way. Its filled with short story type or blog style stories. Its all about finding the magic or the positives in everyday life, that I admit find hard to do some days.
I had to read this after my kids went to bed as I needed quiet, which is a first for me while reading. It was very relaxing and I really wanted to be able to picture or feel what i was reading in a different way than I was used to.
Will be looking forward to more from this author.
