Life’s a Witch by Brittany Geragotelis was an awesome audio to listen to. It’s a witchy/paranormal story and I do have such a fondness for those so for me I really enjoyed this book. It’s narrated by Joy Osmanski and she is fast becoming a favorite narrator of mine. I have listened to one other book narrated by her and she makes an audio even more enjoyable with the emotions she puts into her reading of the story. For me she brings the story alive in my mind and she keeps perfect pace and tone throughout that holds a listener captive.
Hadley is a witch – well really a twitch because she’s a teen witch and she has it all. She is very popular in school and everyone wants to be her. Normally this would annoy me but it didn’t because she’s not snobby about it all – she’s actually very nice. She dresses in the highest fashion and her makeup is always perfect and she never leaves the house without her heels but just how does she achieve this perfect persona – by magic, of course. What I wouldn’t give to wake up in the morning and just say a spell and have my makeup done or wish an outfit was something more spectacular than it actually was. LOL.
Yet even as perfect as Hadley’s life is there is trouble brewing. You see Hadley is a descendant of the first woman that was executed in the Salem Witch Trials and this is something that has to be kept under wraps because there are other witches out there that could and would do harm to Hadley and her family if they knew about her powers. Only her family and those in her coven know of her extraordinary powers but when all of the twitch’s parents disappear the teens are all forced to defend themselves against the enemy. It is then that Hadley learns just how powerful and sought after she is.
Life’s a Witch is a young adult book but I think if you have a hankering to read books on witches or magic then, even as an adult, this book is very enjoyable. I know I really liked it and can’t wait to read more of Brittany Geragotelis’s books! As for the audio production it was fantastic so if you have a chance to listen to the audio definitely go that route!
