    I really enjoyed reading this story. I loved that this wasn't a one track storyline, but had so many sources for added tension throughout. It left so much unfinished business in the end that really makes you eager to read the next book in the series to find out what happens. One of the strongest points about Gehrman's writing in her character development. I loved that I didn't ever get confused about who all the characters were and could easily pick back up where I left off reading. The ending was really great and brings so much action with it. I recommend this to those who are looking for a good YA book about witches and will most likely continue with this series.

    ¿Audrey¿s Guide to Witchcraft¿ by, Jody Gehrman Audrey Olive

    “Audrey’s Guide to Witchcraft” by, Jody Gehrman




    Audrey Oliver is seventeen and leading a regular life with her younger sister Meg and her loving mom. One afternoon Audrey and Meg come home from school to find their mother gone. Shortly after this discovery a twenty one year old girl named Sadie shows up claiming to be a distant cousin. She assures the girls that all is well and that their mom will be back after she’s done helping with a family issue but Audrey’s suspicious. While keeping a close eye on this mysterious cousin, Audrey notices some very strange things about Sadie and about herself. With danger and magic around every corner Audrey is determined to do whatever it takes to bring her mother home. 




    This book has a little bit of everything in it, a very sweet/steamy romance, danger, mystery, magic, humor, life lessons, and engaging characters. Audrey’s story was very easy for me to immerse myself in. The characters were real to me and had believable reactions to the hard situations they had to deal with. I also found myself laughing out loud at the light humor seamlessly woven throughout this story. 
    Some of my favorite parts…   
    *”You’re supposed to whisk the egg yolks, not terrorize them” 
    *”I’m surprised a friend of yours would diet, I assumed you all just stuck your fingers down your throat and called it a day.”  Audrey says this to the “mean girl” in her school. I loved it!
    *”You know, a waffle! Kind of like a pancake except square, with little nooks and crannies.”
    *”For such a bony thing, you sure are in touch with your inner cow.” Audrey says this to that same “mean girl”. (Laughed out loud)
    *”You’re a healthy, radiant, beautiful girl and she’s an anorexic skank. You are not the one who needs to change.” Audrey says this to her best friend Bridget. 
    *”I inhaled the smells: the lingering sweet-grease scent of donuts, the sun-baked vinyl, a trace of something vaguely coconut - probably the enduring legacy of spilled suntan lotion. The combination was intoxicating“(I loved this description)
    *”They tasted like Christmas morning, like deep red satin, like everything you ever wanted and couldn’t name.” (Another great description)




    The above is just a taste of what you will get in this great read. I fell in love with Audrey and her strength but she is just one part of this fun story. This is a story that I think everyone will love and I can’t wait for book #2 to come out. (Go and get your copy today)

    A young adult novel with sparkling dialog, excellent vocabulary, deep characters, plausible crushes and… well, and a paranormal plotline, Jody Gehrman’s Audrey’s Guide to Witchcraft has it all. The story almost reads itself, smoothly written with great voices, wonderful use of language (where else will you read the word “neologisms” and immediately know what it means?), fantastic age-appropriate imagery, depictions of scenery as powerfully evocative as those of magic, and all told in a beautifully consistent voice.

    There’s something charmingly natural (and I’m using charm with its non-supernatural meaning) about a teen writing notes on baking chocolate cake in the same book as the recipe for replenishing magical protection. And this novel’s full of natural charm, supernatural terrors, scary bad guys and mysterious strangers, with a hint of mystical powers behind the chanting of curious spells. Plus there’s a great love interest, humor and pathos, and a mysteriously missing Mom.

    Highly recommended—I can hardly wait to read what happens next.



    Disclosure: I was lucky enough to get a free ecopy of this novel when the author was a guest on my blog.

    'Audrey's Guide to Witchcraft' is a fun and exciting book that follows the main character, Audrey Oliver, as she deals with teenage life and with being a witch-in-training. Among her daily activities include school, crushing on a cute boy, learning spells, and trying to fight evil.

    The first book in a series, this novel is full of excitement and tons of magical energy. The story's heroine, Audrey, is a perfect example of a modern day teenage girl - only with the added benefit of being a young witch on top of everything else. Audrey has to deal with normal teen angst along with normal problems like boys, school, friends, and family; but being a witch brings its own issues. Audrey is a very likeable character and I was able to easily identify with her and root for her throughout the book. The story was very fast paced with lots of magic and adventure - which made it a page turner that I couldn't put down. The narrative had a great flow and was written really well - both of which are needed to make a great book. Overall, I really enjoyed this novel and I will definitely be reading the next installment in the series.

    Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    Chapter by Chapter's review of Audrey's Guide To Witchcraft

    So the cover of this novel, totally creeped me out (and I mean that in a good way). I mean, that’s probably what had me very enticed to see what exactly is inside of the novel. Besides, the title had already caught my interest. If you came here expecting a total spell book, I’m afraid I’m going to have to break it to you that this is a YA novel with a bit of a spell book mixed in with it. Have you ever read such a thing? I don’t know, but I am aware that I for sure haven’t.

    Audrey’s Guide to Witchcraft takes place over a period of weeks in which main character Audrey Oliver finds her life flipped upside down. Her cousin (or is it her cousin?) shows up and alerts Audrey that her mother is back at the “convent” she grew up in. Right after that, we are quickly introduced to the mysterious world of witchcraft stuffed with secrecy, magic and a slightly psychopathic villain who seems to thrive on the dead. Literally.

    I have to admit that when I began reading the first few chapters, I was really enjoying the cast of characters. Audrey’s best friend not only made up words with funny meanings but is also a victim of bullying and I adored how Audrey was quick to defend her friend, which gave the main character something I personally felt I could relate to. Despite how whiney and, at times, annoying Audrey’s younger sister Meg was—I did enjoy the fact that she and Audrey were polar opposites. As for Sadie, the fact that she could erase memories and throw out spells like it was no big deal had me envious of all her power.

    Considering the fact that the novel was filled with recipes (that may or may not work), I found it very equivalent to the guide portion that I expected from the novel. For some of the spells, I am quite tempted to try them out myself just to see if maybe I am a part of the Clan. Who knows, maybe I can take on the evil villain Cormack.

    And since we are on the topic of the story’s main antagonist, let me start off by saying that he is necromancer. Necromancer. Yeah, like those people who can bring the dead back to life. Maybe it’s just me, but I expected this World of Warcraft type character, who can bring the dead back to life and inflict all sorts of tragedy on Audrey, should be wearing a terrifying suit of armor. While I didn’t exactly get what I was expecting, Cormack was still a definite force to be reckoned with. The fact that Cormack holds a dark secret that relates very close to Audrey had me going “OMG!” more than twice.

    Audrey’s Guide to Witchcraft is a laugh out loud type novel. It was straight up hilarious even with the fact that Audrey does end up with brains in her hair. I would recommend this novel to fans of the YA supernatural, readers who enjoy humorous reads, and people who want a novel that is full of mystery, secrets, action and eventually romance. With a main character who is practically Dark Phoenix (minus the being brought back from the dead part) from the X-men, what isn’t to love?

    For Fans of YA Paranormal

    Audrey wakes up one day and senses that something's wrong. Turns out her mom is missing, and then the mysterious "cousin" shows up telling her not to worry and there was just a family emergency. But she's never even met her mom's family. Pretty soon Audrey knows theres something fishy going on, then Audrey finds out she's a witch.

    There is so much going on in this book. And its pretty fun. Between Audrey's witchiness, her sister, Meg's, band, their 'cousin' Sadie's oddness, her love interest and Meg's band manager, Julian (around whom odd things seem to happen, even for a witch) and the 'family emergency' her mom was called away for, there never seems to be a dull moment. When I got this, I had no idea that it was going to be part of a series, so it was a little nerve wracking getting to almost the end and there's so much more that needs to happen. I'm really looking forward to reading the second in this series whenever it gets released.

    Cover: Very appealing cover, I like the spiral effect and the coloring.
    I for one am a huge fan of the girls in dresses on covers. Beginning:
    The start of the story took me some time to get into. Learning the
    characters, the setting and pacing was something that I did have to get
    used to. When I initially picked up the book, it was a lot larger than I
    thought it would be. Middle: The pacing and plot really starts to pick
    up around chapter 5. Lets just say the magic really starts to happen.
    The pace really does start to pick up and I was getting pretty excited
    to keep reading to see what was going to happen. I was still a little
    unsteady about how I felt about Audrey's character, she was still
    growing on me. But I really enjoyed the magic and witchcraft that beings
    to take place. End: Without spoilers, I enjoyed the ending of the
    story because the connection between Audrey and her sister. I liked to
    see her take a protective stance and horrified by the events that take
    place right at the end. My heart broke for what the girls had to go
    through and witness with their mother. I was on the edge of my seat for
    awhile. The story has a great villain that you will love to hate. Evil
    that keeps the anticipation and the heart beat racing. I couldn't read
    those last pages fast enough.
