4 Stars!!!!

This is a very unique book and a very refreshing author. This is my first time reading this author and I have to say that I found this book to be quite interesting. The whole concept of magic in everything is just so refreshing. I really found myself getting caught up in the creative world the author was creating. I found that it really made me look at life and see just how magical it really is.

There is just so much going on in this book that you really need to just get lost in it. The author
brings so much creativeness to this book. You can easily get lost in the ramblings of this book. It
was such a unique book and I am so glad that I was able to read it. This is like a trip down a road less traveled and everyone should read a book like this at least once if not again and again I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

Everyday Enchantments: Musings on Ordinary Magic & Daily Conjurings By Maria F. DeBlassie. I think we could all benefit from enjoying life’s small things and that’s what I took away from this book. This isn’t my usual read but I’m really glad I took a chance because by the end I had a bit of a different look on life. This book is filled with thought provoking experience and I love the writing style. There’s many of lessons that could be learned from this book. There’s emotion written in that readers can feel. While this is a more thought provoking book it’s a very relaxing book to read. The perfect book for a Sunday afternoon, cozy chair and hot cocoa. I’m giving this wonderful book a five star review and highly recommend it to anyone no matter what your reading likes are.

Everyday Enchantments: Musings on Ordinary Magic & Daily Conjurings by Maria F. DeBlassie is a beautiful group of essays that make you want to savor every passage. This book took me a couple of days but it made me think. This is the first book I have read by this author and I look forward to reading more by her. Each essay is a musing of everyday ordinary events and the magic you find when you take the time to look. It made me want to take things in my busy life and slow down and enjoy the little things. I highly recommend this book and will definitely be re-reading it in the future.

Everyday Enchantments: Musings on Ordinary Magic & Daily Conjurings by Maria F DeBlassie was a different interesting read, that was very soothing, and at times almost had me asleep.. in a good way.

This isn’t your normal style book. It’s a collection of sorts, with no real direction. Just soothing emotions, calming situations and a insightful look into the world around us. It did take a bit to get use to the style of this journal like writing, but once I found my stride I was pulled into each new enchantment and let myself see the way the author does, and it was a bit of a wonder. A little weird, but a wonder.

Having the room quiet, and reading such words, I was in such a relaxed stated that my eyes felt heavy. I’m sure if I had any light music or a warm blanket I would have dozed off. I know, falling asleep while reading. But I have to tell you, this was a good thing, because this book puts you in that state of mind. In saying that, if you need a good bedtime read, this book will get you to a place where your mind is calm and relaxed.

I think this might be a re-read book, when my mind won’t shut down, and for that I thank the author for putting such words on paper.

With that said I give this book my high recommendation and my stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

I chose to read Everyday Enchantments because I was looking for a little magic in my life. Everyday Enchantments by Maria F. DeBlassie is a collection of stories like Chicken Soup for the Soul books. However, I enjoyed reading Everyday Enchantments over any Chicken Soul book. There is magic all around us, we just need to open our eyes to look for it. I did not rush through this book to find an action pack, fist thumping, or a cliffhanger book, but instead I found a story to lift your spirits through the little stories. It is a difficult world that we are in and the little things are often missed. This is a book to remind you to stop and notice the little things again.

This was a different take on the ‘self-help’ novel approach. I found it to be quite meditative. Everyday Enchantments encourages the reader to take our simplest of mundane tasks, the ones that often drag us through the dirt the most, and teaches one to find the pleasures in it. Simply stopping and smelling the roses a bit more. Too often we get swept up in life. We wake up, do the chores, get the kids to school, work, pay the bills, do more chores, put the kids to bed, wash rinse repeat. Marie DeBlassie encourages us in Everyday Enchantments to find that joy in the small things once again. Whether it be reading our favorite books, or finding a new one, cooking something yummy, walks in the rain after dark, the possibilities are endless. The idea is we need to find time to find the magic in our lives. It is always there we just ignore it. Normally non-fictional books aren’t a strong read for me or much above a three star rating but this one I would give a solid four stars.

This is not something I would normally read but am so glad I did, it was awesome, and even though it’s not my normal choice of reading it was definitely interesting and had me walking away from it thinking more about things that happen in my everyday life…How even though I try not to I absolutely take so many things for granted. It’s so easy to get caught up in the rat race of life and because of some of the stories in this book I will be looking at things a little differently from this point on.

The writing in this book was beautiful and flowed smoothly, it was nice for a change to not have an ongoing story that doesnt give me time to break. I will definitely be checking out more from this author.

Awesome
