2013’s Awesome Reads

I have spent a rather large amount of my year reading: 36,646 pages and 116 books to tell the truth. This year I have focused on reading for pleasure, so if you’re looking for some life-improving, brain-engaging reads this is not the list for you. This is cotton candy for your soul. It’s what I love. Reading is my favorite. It’s my way of practicing self care. The books I read provide nothing for me but enjoyment and still, I make time for them. That’s what self care is all about, making time for the stuff that serves no other purpose than to make you feel good. Ready Player One “It’s the year 2044, and the real world is an ugly place. Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes his grim surroundings by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia that lets you be anything you…

Book Review: Grimoire For The Green Witch

Grimoire For The Green Witch by Ann Moura is an absolute treasure. I have used this book so much in my magical practice due to its wonderful information and beautiful rituals. I recommend it to anyone walking a magical path. How do I even begin to tell you about this book? It is great for beginners if you are just starting out. In the first section, she has definitions of basic tools, materials, and symbols. She gives great information about the Sabbats (holidays) and that is probably the best part of the book. For each Sabbat she gives a wonderful list of associated incense, decorations, food, and a really in-depth list of activities. She even shares Pagan versions of Christmas Carols. The rituals she includes for each sabbat and for each phase of the moon are absolutely phenomenal. There are also rituals for blessing your tools, Handfastings, crystal cleansings, consecrations, crystal programmings, dedication…

Book Review: Cottage Witchery

Morning my Lovies. Today I have a book review that I’d like to share with you. I am a huge fan of Ellen Dugan, she is one of my favorite New Age authors. I think she comes across as very knowledgeable, I love her writing style, and she has some great ideas. Her book, Cottage Witchery has got to be one of my favorites! I have a close relationship with Hestia Greek Goddess of Hearth and Home, and this means I am a home-body. I love my home, I love decorating, I love cleaning, I love “keeping the hearth fires” so to speak. The point of this book is to help you create a warm and welcoming magical home and it absolutely delivers. If you want your home to reflect a magical lifestyle, even in a non-obvious way, then buy this book. The first section is about blessing and protecting your home.…

Book Review: The Goddess of Happiness

Everyone can use a little happiness, especially in November with the Holidays coming up. The energy this month is just kicking my ass. It’s been a roller-coaster of emotions and anxiety and I am quite ready to get off! I feel so rushed to get things done and I just need to slow down and relax. I am in need of a lazy day, asap! Don’t get me wrong. I love creating and being busy, but sometimes it’s so nice to do nothing. Today’s book review is one that is great to have if you need a little brightness in your day but not a lot of time to get it. The Goddess of Happiness by Debbie Gisonni is a cute little book that I picked up last year. It’s 168 pages of short and simple ways to improve your happiness. The book starts out with a little quiz to…
