So for today I wanted to share with y’all some of the books on my witchcraft shelf. A lot of them have been helpful through my craft (some of them not so much) and I really enjoyed them. Please feel free to reblog and add your own favorites.
The Dream Dictionary From A to Z (Teresa Cheung): This one’s really helpful when you’re trying to figure out what your dreams mean. It lets you look up dreams by either items or events in them and help figure out what they’re trying to tell you.
Grove Daughter Witchery-Practical Spellcraft (Bree NicGarran): Okay, this has to be my all time favorite book on this list. NicGarran comes at the craft from a non-Wiccan perspective and her practical advice section covers a lot of common questions and concerns. Her spells are also amazing and my copy is covered in little notes and bookmarks to come back to. (I would also highly recommend following her blog @breelandwalker)
The Kitchen Witch (Soraya): As someone who dabbles in kitchen witchery, this is a good beginning guide to the craft. There’s a lot of really good recipes in here and it also goes into lotions and teas. The one issue I have with this book is that the author tends to come off as a little elitist when it comes to cooking; everything has to be homemade down to the broth. But if you can move past this, the recipes are really good.
Llewellyn’s Witches’ Spell-A-Day Almanac (Multiple authors): I really like these type of books. It gives you a crap ton of spells to look through and pick and choose to use. It can also be helpful when making your own spells because you can see what other people have done.
Wicca-A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner (Scott Cunningham): This was actually my first witchcraft book and I still refer to it from time to time (these blog posts for instance). Honestly, any of Cunningham’s books are a wonderful suggestion and he takes the time to explain all the nuances of the craft. While they are getting a little dated, I would always recommend Cunningham’s books for the new witch.
