You know, I originally had a very long, angry review posted for this book, however I deleted it. I tossed and turned at night because of this book. I woke up in a cold sweat, my nightmares filled with images of Killstar-esque Tumblr witches sporting Ray Bans and purple lipstick and shirts that sa...

I received this book for free from the publisher (Quirk Books) in exchange for an honest review.
I give this book 4.5 stars which rounds up to 5.
I’ve been wanting to read this book for the longest time. I’ve been very interested in witches and witchcraft since I read the Chilling Adventures of S...

5 Words: Magic, well-being, feminism, empowerment, humour.
I loved this.

I was really excited about this ARC until pages 49-52, where the authors deadass suggest that if you're not a man (or just not feminine at all) but want to be witchy you should dress in your power colors (verbatim. Power colors), find a nicely scented cologne to wear, and do an anti-femininity sp...

It's a mix of positive affirmations, feminism, and very loose ties to witchcraft and rituals. The authors make it clear in the first couple chapters that they're not spiritually wiccan, nor are they pagans practicing witchcraft. Maybe it is because I'm studying paganism and witchcraft as spiritua...

THIS BOOK IS
It is definitely for those not well versed in anything wiccan or occult. It is a self help book for the millenial/gen-z-er that needs a little spirituality in their life. It goes over ways to empower yourself, through day to day life, and with little charms. While it is...

5 stars for the lovely illustrations!!
Otherwise, I think this is maybe meant for teens, so I’m not the ideal audience.
And it’s not exactly serious witchcraft... it’s more like a five minute guide on: how to use charms in positive visualization, play with tea leaves/tarot cards/runes, dress witch...

First, let me say that this is definitely not the type of book I would normally read. It's actually probably the type that I wouldn't even think of picking up. But anything witches always intrigues me. I also remember being a kid and thinking I could put a spell on anyone. I tried. They never wor...

This book is clearly not for me; it's geared towards: A) women B) people interested in witchcraft. But it's about as charming as you can get in a book. The two authors have written out spells, life tips and just ideas for how to be a witch. I absolutely loved the section on makeup and beauty tips...

This book was so much fun! I’m not usually one to consult self-help books, or one who reads nonfiction in general! I know that some of you may also associate the word “nonfiction” with dry and boring information. But even as a lover of fiction (and fantasy fiction, at that), I am telling you that...
