Girl's Guide to Witchcraft by Mindy Klasky


From Smashwords:

Jane Madison has a problem. Or two. Or three. She’s working as a librarian, trapped in absurd period costumes and serving up expensive lattes, all in an effort to keep her employer’s budget in the black. She has a desperate crush on her Imaginary Boyfriend, a professor who regularly uses her library. Her doting grandmother is determined to reunite her with her long-absent mother. And now she’s been told that the library can’t pay her a well-deserved raise – instead, she can live for free in an ancient, dusty cottage on the library grounds.

When Jane settles into her new, allergen-infested home, she discovers a hidden chamber lined with ancient books – a world-class collection on witchcraft. She begins to read a spellbook, never suspecting that she has the power to work actual magic. Her first spell awakens a smart-mouthed feline familiar. Her second makes her irresistible to men, starting with her geeky, shy co-worker. Those magical workings attract the attention of the local coven, specifically the warder David Montrose. Jane resents David’s interference even as she watches her powers spiral out of control. Before long, Jane doesn’t know who she should listen to: her well-meaning grandmother, her down-to-earth best friend, her bitchy familiar, her besotted co-worker, her coming-around Imaginary Boyfriend, or her overbearing astral enforcer.
I have been eyeing Mindy Klasky's books for years.  Witches are just fun and these books have always struck me as books I would enjoy, but we all know how big those TBR piles get.  Given this, I was thrilled to find the Girl's Guide to Witchcraft for just 99 cents for Kindle.  I am sorry I waited so long!  Girl's Guide is a fun, romantic romp through the hazards of newfound witchy powers.

I loved Jane's Imaginary Boyfriend (something I think we can all relate to) and that she had a fish that she named Stupid Fish.  I think I may also need to institute Mojito Therapy with BiblioJunkies Nat & Bel!  I just started Sorcery for the Single Girl and am hoping it is just as fun as Girl's Guide.  Mindy Klasky has self-published Girl's Guide since the rights to the book reverted back to her from her original publisher.  Girl's Guide is available from Kindle and Smashwords.  If you are looking for a fluffy, fun read then Girl's Guide is for you.
