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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Book Recommendations for New Witches

There is an abundance of information and misinformation about witchcraft in books and on the Internet. Sometimes I see recommendations for new witches that are fluffy, inaccessible, or impractical. Witchcraft isn’t always simple, but it shouldn’t be too expensive or nigh impossible. You don’t have to splurge on a bunch of tools and ingredients to […]
