I was asked to do a book review for Witches & Pagans and it took a while for me to write one because I figured out why I’m not a big reader of Pagan/Occult books – because I am a v. v. critical reader and books more than thirty years old aren’t, generally speaking, friendly to women and as I don’t take kindly to being treated like a dog wearing clothes even if historically that’s accurate, my book learnin’ is spotty because I have to be able to get through it. I had a few “meh” books (not even terrible enough to make them awesome) and finally got a good one.
It’s called Coventry Magic with Candles, Oils, and Herbs by Jacki Smith. I really liked the “salt of the earthiness” of it and learned some new skills that I’ve been integrating into my practice.
I can’t really say more because – review, but it’s good, get it.
