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...

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 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!

This was a cool, aesthetically pleasing self help book disguised in quirky humour and a witchy nu-goth aesthetic.

I don't normally read books classified as "self-help", but when I saw this cover and read the description, I had to take a peek! BASIC WITCHES is a hilarious approach to a self-help book. There is a little bit of the history behind witches, which is always interesting to me to read about. It's fu...

A self-help book with actual spells? Yes, please!
I feel like the start of the book was a bit stereotypical try new clothes, try new colors, but once the basics were done the book tackled some very important things like losing people, toxic friendships, and personal demons. It was also great to se...

A cute little flip-book of advise about how to be a "witch" or, perhaps more aptly, a modern, feminist-leaning woman. There is a lot of light-hearted quotes and "spells" (affirmations) and plenty of beautiful illustrations. I mean, look at the cover. It's gorgeous.
I recommend flipping through thi...
