The main character is a hereditary witch named Arelia. She lets everyone believe that she is this mean witch that can do more harm than good but she also helps the people in her town that comes to her magic potions shop. She is also very stubborn to do things that she doesn’t want to do but does once someone wears her down. She has red hair that is mostly all over the place and the elder witches have been trying to get her to do something about it. She has a cat familiar that she calls Cat. Very original I might add. Who seems to get more into trouble than helping out Arelia. Or even more getting her into trouble. Even though it seems Arelia gets him into the trouble as well. She also has a house ghost named Puck. I think Puck is an elf but I’m not entirely sure. Puck seems to be friends with Cat or at least they tolerate each other and seems to be friends when it comes to food.
What I liked about this book. There are at least four things that I liked about this book. The first one I liked was a dragon named Dragon. She has such creative names for the animals in this book. I liked the dragon because yeah, he was kind of an antagonist but he was pretty funny. He just wanted some help and eventually Arelia figured that out and helped him. Another pretty funny character is the Father. He was pretty weird and a bit kooky in my mind. He would go to her and ask for help with whatever ailment he needed to get rid of or just to go for a talk and then he would end up spilling holy water to make her go away on her doorstep on his way out. Or even just tell her to her face that he doesn’t like her. At least until she does something like save the town or the cattle or whatever and he ends up liking her again. I also liked how even though the book is all told from Arelia’s point of view that some of the other characters seem so three-dimensional which is always a good thing. The last thing that I like about the book is that there is a little romance in it but not a whole lot.
What I disliked about this book. There is a bit that I didn’t like about this book. The first thing that I disliked about this book is that all of it consists of journal entries. I didn’t like that since it made it a bit hard to really get to know a lot more about the other characters besides what Arelia thought of them or with what she say of them. I would have preferred if it was in first person or even third person point of view. The last thing that I disliked about this book is that I didn’t really know what time period the book was in which was kind of hard to know about when the book took place.
Stories From The Witch Store by Olga Gutsol is a good book despite some things that I mentioned above that I didn’t really like. I am giving this book four stars since despite the dislikes I have about this book it’s still really good.
Anyways until the next time enjoy this review brought to you by

One of the best books I have read. Witty humor and great storyline. The only bad thing is that the book ends while you crave for more.
Highly recommend to all, and I will definitely gift this to my friends.
Written in the form of a diary, these great stories from a hereditary witch in the fifth generation Arelia will never leave readers indifferent. Along with her friends Cat and Puck, the house-ghost, she leads a completely magical life, full of funny meetings and events in Burnaville, though she herself, counts it fairly dull. However, the word dull is not suitable to describe Stories from the Witch Store in the least.
The author has done an immense job developing all characters. The narrative is so easy to perceive, the language is descriptive and rich, and a pinch of spicy, unique “witch humor” makes this book completely unforgettable. Hidden between the lines, there are plenty of really thought-provoking ideas, and awesome pictures add to the whole book greatly.
I really enjoyed the scenes of Madam Grundell buying her weight-loss potion, the loud midnight wails of Cat on the roof, accompanied by Puck on an old accordion singing something about nine lives and the meeting of Arelia and her old friend Victor, the werewolf.
So if you want to submerge into the atmosphere of magic creatures and potions or discover how it feels to find a dragon in your kitchen and a lot more strange, but entertaining things, just give this book a try, and you will definitely be charmed!
The narrative is really simple and the book reads very easy. It's amazing to read light fiction once in a while and this was like that.
First time reading any of this authors work and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a well thought out and interesting story. I found myself looking forward in anticipation to the next scene. There was a good mix of laugh out loud moments and sombre thoughts to keep me thoroughly entertained. The story flowed very well and at the end I wanted more. This book had me gripped right from the start and there are many twists and turns. I did not want to put it down and even took it with me to read whilst doing housework just so I could finish it.
This book can be enjoyed time and time again.I highly recommend it.
Will definitely recommend to all friends and family
