Everyday Enchantments: a book review

Everyday Enchantments

Maria DeBlassie and I have never met, but after reading her new book Everyday Enchantments, I think it might have been written just for me.

From the very first page, Maira DeBleassie’s words drew me in. I was not familiar with her before. I found this book as an advanced reader offering and selected simply because of the title. By page 4, I was already typing her name in Google. Who is this woman? Why have I not seen her words until now?

I clicked around her blog for a few minutes, then returned even more enamored to Everyday Enchantments. This collection of essays makes mundane experiences seem filled with magic and wonder. I am all in for that.

In this book of very short essays -- musings, really -- DeBlassie talks about tea, used bookstores, yoga, herb shops, rainy days, and pretty much everything I like. If you like these things, too, go get this book.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review.
