That’s a great review, I have seen that book before & wondered about it, like is it more of a reference book such as a cookbook type of set up or if it was in fact a book about them as a whole with the different “recipes” intertwined. I find that a lot with books about deities & their stories or associations.
It was a good book!
@Amethyst i started it this afternoon! It’s lovely so far!
Im haven’t finished my books yet due to being sick and sleeping alot
It’s a great book, at least I think so. I’m glad you’re liking it!
So sorry to hear you’ve been so sick. You can always put down the same book next month. It’s all good.
I am only on the 9th chakra right now once I finish this one, I will happily post a review for it. I have another book all lined up too! I’m excited about it too!
10/10 Woohoo!!! I’m so happy you found such a good book to read, Amethyst- it sounds like it was loaded with wisdom and helpful practices. That quote you shared is powerful- what an encouraging and uplifting message about magick, especially when it comes to healing
Thank you so much for sharing your review!
Hahaha nothing wrong with having a book that draws you in! Keep on reading, Khadija- I hope it continues to get better and better for you!
Good for you for being honest with yourself and not being afraid to switch it up when something isn’t working- and hooray that your new book is such a great one!
It sounds like the Book of Spells is everything you were hoping for and more! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts and I hope you continue to enjoy the book
I had to stop following the trial news- it was getting a bit too ridiculous for me to watch lol
No worries and no rush, Nikita! Please get some good rest and take care of yourself as you heal Feel better soon!
Looking forward to it- I hope the last few chakra sections in the book have lots of helpful tips and wisdom for you! And awesome- how cool that you’ve got another exciting book lined up! Can’t wait to hear about that one too
You’re welcome! It was a good book!

Book Title and Author: Spellcrafting by Aris Murphy-Hiscock
Status? : Still Reading
My overall rating of the book :8/10 so far
How does this book relate to my magickal practice?: an excellent guide to spells, correpondences, energy and more
My personal thoughts/opinions: Where did the time go? I’m only half way through, but it is excellent. It goes into lots of detail about spellwork from conceiving the concept of the spell, phrasing it, selecting ingredients and times, raising energy, and…more stuff I haven’t gotten to.
An interesting quote from the book: “If the Divine could be limited by what we envision, then the Divine wouldn’t be the Divine.”
All in all, would I recommend this book?: Yes
I was finally able to finish the book and am hoping to start the book i pulled out- The crooked path by Kelden
How do we find the new post for the current reading period that started on June 3rd?
I used the little magnifying glass in the upper right corner and searched on Book Club
I don’t believe it’s been posted just yet. Our lovely mod @TheTravelWitch_Bry is currently travelling. I’m sure once she makes it back home she’ll get it up and ready
You know you’ve got a good book when time slips away and the pages fly by- I’m so happy you found yourself such a great read, Ron!
Love that quote about the Divine- it sounds like this book dips into some deep thinking and philosophical thought. I think I can see why it calls to you!
May it continue to be a great read!
Congrats on finishing your book! And ohhhh exciting that you’ve got your next one already picked out
Feel free to add it in to next session’s book list- I hope you enjoy your reading!
A big thank you to Marsha and Megan for helping you out, and apologies for being behind with the post! That’s what I get for packing my to-do list before it was finished
The post for the next reading session is now live in the forum! For anyone who has their next witchy book picked out (or those continuing their reading from this session) feel free to head on over to the new post here:
Apologies again for the delay- blessed be and happy reading!
I’m still reading mine
Book Title and Author:
Ocean Magick: Connecting with the Ocean’s Energy** by Sandra Kynes
Status? : Finished
My overall rating of the book : 8/10
How does this book relate to my magickal practice?:
I started this book after we finished the sea magick challenge because the topic really interested me and because I saw it posted on the challenge comments. I read everything that catches my eye, so a quick trip to kindle had me on my way!
My personal thoughts/opinions:
This was definitely a fun book to read! If you love the ocean, this book is for you. Each chapter focuses on something different - waves, salt, water, seashells, sand, deities, etc. Kline gives a great deal of scientific and historical background (from many, many cultures) on each topic and then discusses the magickal properties of the topic and how it can be incorporated into your practice. She then gives “homework” and offers a meditation, exercise, and/or journal entry for you to try on your own.
I am still absolutely delighted with the fact that I can encounter magick everywhere I go and in everything I do. The beach and ocean have always enthralled me and I knew the place was magickal even be for I started the craft, so this book really brought my attention to why I feel b the way I feel. It was a fun summer read!
An interesting quote from the book: " "
Magic is an attitude toward the world and an awareness of its natural rhythms.
All in all, would I recommend this book?: Yes
