The fact that I am reading a spellbook may be worrisome for some, and others probably think it is a good idea. The introduction states, “We all want to lead a magical life – one in which we are able to both shape and take responsibility for our destinies. This book reveals how, by simply casting spells that align with the cycles of nature and the universe, you too can begin to manifest your dreams.”
The book then goes into how to be a good witch and the solar and lunar cycles as well as some magic tools you may need for your spells. It also heeds the warning – what goes around comes around and ill intentions sent out may be visited upon you – usually threefold. Something to keep in mind when you might be wanting to be a bit impulsive with the spell casting.
I will say, the spells in this book all have a positive vibe to them – so hopefully it won’t be creating any ill intentions for anyone!
I received a free e-copy of this book from NetGalley in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
