This is a place for my opinions on what I read, some movies or whatever else I find interesting. I love reading. I can find something positive about everything I read, at least I hope I can. I understand it takes a great deal of love and effort to write a book and to get it published. An author does not set out to write a crappy book, this is/was their baby. They got up at all hours of the night to feed it.

I don't see how you can give a true review of a book rushing through it. Don't you need to savor it a bit? I don't want my opinion to discourage anyone from reading. I hope you find something here you find interesting.

I buy most of my books, I get a few ARC, and I visit my library when my funds are low. I'm not trying to get you to buy anything by my opinions on the books I've read. I don't care if you buy it, borrow it, or check it out at the library. Just read. :)

Green Witch

AUTHOR: Alice Hoffman
PAGES: 135
WEBSITE: http://www.alicehoffman.com/index.htm

SUMMARY: (from book jacket)
Green lives every day with feelings of loss. Her family is gone, the boy she loves is missing, and the world she once knew has been transformed by tragedy. In order to rediscover the truth about love, hope and magic, she must venture away from her home, collecting the stories of a group of women who have been branded as witches because of their mysterious powers. Only through their stories will Green find her own heart's desire.

Loved it. Green Witch is the continuation of Green's story from Green Angel. It's a whimsical dark fable about a girl named Green. Green finds the strength not to let the deep sadness, that is her life, consume her as she tries to find her best friend and the boy she loved. With the help of the "witches" Green finds her way. Each woman has a story to tell, a story of sadness, a story of hope. With the help of these enchanted, Green discover who she is. Who she is beyond: Green full of grief.
It's lyrical and fast paced. It's a vivid story that comes to life as you read. It's a magical little book.

What you dream, you can grow.
"Someone told me that, but I didn't believe it. I said I had nothing and that people with nothing are unable to dream. But I was wrong. Dreams are like air. They never leave you. It takes less than nothing to begin. Start with a pile of rocks. Moonstones, night stones, stones the color of snow. Start with heartache, thorns vines. Let there be mud on your clothes, nails in your boots, ink on your skin, pain deep inside you. Let it grow and don't be afraid."

Be sure to read Green Angel first, you really need to know Green's back story before starting Green Witch. The two books put together aren't even 300 pages. Short but memorable series.


  1. I've not heard of this series before but it looks really good! Great review, thank you!

  2. Hi Lorielle,
    Green Angel is kind of old so you can probably find it at your library without having to reserve it. It's in the YA section. Green Witch just came out this March.

Book Odor Removal:

I bought a book at a library book sale, it had a strange odor. Someone gave me this suggestion to remove the smell, and it worked, so I thought I'd share.
Put the book in a ziploc bag along with 1/3 cup(more or less) of Arm & Hammer baking soda and seal shut. Leave the book alone for 2 or 3 days. It worked for me, hope it helps you too.
