The Trouble With Magic
I don't really know what drew me to this book. It's a mystery and mysteries make you think, so I think that I just wanted something that would get my mind working. Plus, in the day and age of Harry Potter, magic just doesn't seem so unrealistic anymore. The story is about a girl who gets a job at an antiques shop and the owner is a witch who's sister is murdered, and everyone thinks it's the witch, so the girl tries to clear her name and in the process realizes that she is becoming part of the magical world. In a few parts they talk about ghosts and spirits and of course I read this in the middle of the night so it freaked me out. If a book can give me the shivers, then it's well written. I'm reading the second book in the series, and if I remember, I'll probably grab the 3rd when it comes out.
