    Alissa doesn’t believe in magic. Her father’s stories about the Hold, a legendary fortress where human Keepers learn magic from the enigmatic Masters, are just that—stories. But her mother insists Alissa has inherited her father’s magical ability, so she must go to the Hold to be trained. On her way, she crosses paths with Strell, a wandering musician from the plains.

    I listened to all 4 books and let me tell you I am sad she is not writing more about Strell and Alyssa. I loved loved loved this story and will listen over and over again, something I never usually do with a book. Completely recommend the book and the narrator as a positive experience.

    Jane Madison has a problem. Or two. Or three. She’s unhappily working as a librarian. She has a crush on her oblivious Imaginary Boyfriend. And she just learned she won’t receive a well-deserved raise; instead, she can live for free in a cottage on the library grounds. When Jane settles into her new home, she discovers a hidden chamber lined with ancient books about witchcraft. Her first spell awakens a feline familiar. Her second makes her irresistible to men. Those magical workings attract a sexy magical warder, and Jane’s life is quickly turned upside down.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I don't think so. I was on edge many times, thinking something good might happen in the book however there was just too much description of little things and the plot was super weak. Give me some substance please!


    Has Girl's Guide to Witchcraft turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I listened to the first chapter, sincerely hoping that it would make me want to take a jump and listen to book 2 but I am still deciding... I am not too excited for book 2... at all.


    What does Emma Galvin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emma Galvin did a great job. The story is what was not good. Her voice made Jane sound younger but really.. she acted younger anyhow.. so it was fine. The story is what needed help.


    Could you see Girl's Guide to Witchcraft being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    not at all. BORING.


    Any additional comments?

    The book was a tease. There was so much potential!!! The whole setting was excellent however the story.. bla. I want to hear more from the other witches and the rest of the coven. What about her family having powers? Why is it centered so much around this stupid Jason Guy? She took so much time to explain the details I found myself not listening to many paragraphs and I found that... it did not really matter because the writer was writing about nothing! Great potential... horrible follow through.

    Always love Emma! I would buy a book just for her.

    I really don't understand all the bad reviews. She repeats herself less in this last book than she did in her others. Her others were sooooo slow at some points and this one really had a bit more story to it. It was more like the first book to me. If you are trying to decide if you should buy this I would say go for it. It was worth it to me!!

    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    I loved the story and the narrator. I don't think the ending of this story was as bad as some said, it's an ending, they can't all be happy. It's been hard for me to find a book to listen to now for a couple weeks because this one pulled me in so much. Very sad, very real, very interesting. It did make me tear up.

    Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station---and a werewolf in the closet. Sick of lame song requests, she accidentally starts "The Midnight Hour," a late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged. After desperate vampires, werewolves, and witches across the country begin calling in to share their woes, her new show is a raging success.

    I love the narrator and I like the story a whole lot!! I'm looking forward to listening to the rest of the series. just a note. I used to hate the narrator, couldn't get past her voice because she spoke so fast but really, push through..she has a gift and it fits this type of story perfectly!
