Casting Spells That Work

Magical practitioners have drawn conclusions, similar and different, as to how magic works and what spells require. At most, we can all agree that no spell can grant you the power to defy physics. We can also agree that the foundation of a spell is a goal, also known as “intention.” Tools and ingredients are […]

Strange Secrets by Mike Russell – Book Review

Thanks to the publisher for sending me a free copy in exchange for an honest review! I love weirdness. Strange Secrets is several short stories that are full of weirdness. Reading each was like taking a trip through a wacky, Twilight Zone-esque dream. Everything seems normal and then, gradually, it’s not. These outlandish tales will […]

Daughter of Chaos by Sarah Rees Brennan – Book Review

It’s official. I ship Harvey and Nick. Thanks, book. Seriously, though. The author has, once again, proven how great she is at nailing the voices of the characters. The character development in this book is exactly what the show could’ve used more of. I dare say the third season would’ve been better if she’d written […]

Season of the Witch by Sarah Rees Brennan – Book Review

I’ll say it again: I’m a big fan of Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (despite the train wreck of a third season), so I was thrilled to discover there were books. They were inspired by the Netflix series, and I can only hope there will be more! This book is a prequel to the first […]

Liebster Award

Hey there, fellow book noodles. How are you all? I’ve been failing #Februwitchy because I’m a slower reader than I thought. Also, health issues. Good stuff. But that’s okay because it’s still fun to be part of a readathon. In more positive news, Lauren @ Lala’s Book Reviews nominated me for the Liebster award, which […]

A Witch's World of Magick by Melanie Marquis – Book Review

I love witchcraft books that favor creativity and innovation. What makes this one stand out, however, is that it observes and compares the many (and rather simple) magical techniques of diverse cultures, past and present. You might think “cultural appropriation,” but fear not, for this book is about cultural appreciation. It brings you around the […]

#Februwitchy Readathon

This February, I’m participating in my first readathon! It’s hosted by Asha and there’s more info here. I never thought I’d participate in any, but how could I say no to one that is dedicated to witches and witchcraft? My TBR is almost exclusively witchy, so I’m going to (finally) share it… or at least […]

Things I Like and Dislike in Books

I’ve been thinking about how picky of a reader I am. I can take forever trying to decide what books to add to my library. As you must know, I’m a witch, and it’s actually pretty difficult to find books on witchcraft that interest me enough. I don’t just read anything because then I’d probably […]

Weave the Liminal by Laura Tempest Zakroff – Book Review

Compared to other witchcraft books, this one is quite different. I have a few issues with it, but hey, there was no usual talk of deity worship and fluffy spells and equally fluffy witch lore. Nope. This is deep. It’s not the most organized book, but it’s full of useful, enlightening information that would be […]
