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 […]

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 […]

Maple Street by A.M. Dorhauer – Book Review

It may not be All Hallows’ Eve, but the witches’ blessing is part of the new year tradition in Maple Street. As the scene unfolded in the written word, I thought how fitting it was for this to be my first review in 2020. What did I think of the book? Oh, it was delightful. […]

Nightbooks by J.A. White – Book Review

I am SO looking forward to the Netflix adaptation of this book! It’s obvious that I loved it, and how could I not? It’s the perfect mix of spooky and whimsical, and there’s a witch! A witch who is named Natacha and lures twelve-year-old Alex Mosher, the protagonist, into her magical apartment, where he must […]

Tarot for Writers by Corrine Kenner – Book Review

I’ve always loved the idea of mapping out a plot and getting to know your characters with the tarot. Although I haven’t found it necessary to do so for myself, I must say that this book is perfect for aspiring tarot readers and novelists alike. The style of writing is quite breezy, descriptive yet uncomplicated […]

Practical Astrology for Witches and Pagans by Ivo Dominguez, Jr. – Book Review

Wow! This was quite a read, which I mean in the best way possible. Unlike other astrology books, this one wasn’t written to teach you how to interpret a birth chart, but how to utilize the celestial system in magical work instead. Despite the author’s poetic yet straightforward style, you might become puzzled and overwhelmed […]

Pop Culture Magic Systems by Taylor Ellwood – Book Review

For imaginative witches like me, pop culture magic is a breath of fresh air. I’ve always connected more with fiction than reality, and I’ve been doing magical things with it long before I called myself a witch. First, I admire how thorough, yet accessible the author’s writing style is. I also appreciate how he kindly […]
