Book Review No. 56 - Llewellyn's Little Book of Spirit Animals by Melissa Alvarez

Good Afternoon! Hope you are enjoying your day so far. I started my day off with a large cup of spilt tea, not the best way to get going, however it did force me to do some cleaning so that is looking on the bright side. 
I got to read through this little gem of a reference book "Llewellyn's Little Book of Spirit Animals" by Melissa Alvarez. This book is sort of of a pocket guide to spirit animals. The beginning has a really nice overview on what a spirit animal is and different ways you can utilize them in you everyday life and practice. Also, Alvarez points out that spirit animals may have a one time message or may be with you for extended periods of time, you have to pay attention to your surroundings.

Book Review No. 55 - Dark Goddess Craft by Stephanie Woodfield

Wow, it has been awhile since I've been here. I guess I took a hiatus without even realizing it. I actually stepped away from most of the internet, taking some time to deal with family issues and more health work.

So, this review is a long time coming. This was an excellent book, and I enjoyed it a lot. Stephanie Woodfield's "Dark Goddess Craft" was filled with an enormous amount of information about the realms of the dark goddesses.

Book Review No. 54 - The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay

Sit down, grab some tea because it is cold outside and when anyone discusses Austen it is always better to have tea in hand.
I read this book in about a day and a half. Katherine Reay's "The Austen Escape" is a charming romance novel set in modern times. Isabel and Mary have been friends since childhood, but things have been strained in their relationship as they've grown into adulthood. Mary took a job working in a flourishing tech job while Isabel is working on her doctoral thesis on Jane Austen.

Book Review No. 53 - Arthurian Magic by Virginia Chandler, John Matthews, Caitlin Matthews and Gareth Knight

Welcome 2018! The ending of a year and the beginning of a new always has a special quality about it, like things get refreshed.

I finished this magical book "Arthurian Magic" by Virginia Chandler, John Matthews, Caitlin Matthews and Gareth Knight. Now, I know little about King Arthur other than the basic mythology, but this book goes way deeper into ancient magics and mythos of the fabled king and Merlin.

Book Review No. 52 - Tarot Time Traveller by Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin

Hello, welcome back to another addition of Book Review Tuesday, that rarely ever happens on Tuesdays. 

If you read tarot books, then you've come across Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin before. They have a good number of books on the subject, and I've read several of them, which I thought were excellent for beginners and more advanced tarot students alike. "Tarot Time Traveller" is a little bit different of a book, it really is like time traveling to specific times in tarot history.

Book Review No. 51 - Darkly Skewed by Natalie-Nicole Bates

Well hello December. Where did November go? It passed by so quick, and with the holidays upon us, time really flies.

I have a great novella to review this week, it is "Darkly Skewed" by Natalie-Nicole Bates. I have the privilege of knowing this author, so I am please to be able to review her work. This is the first in a series of books based on a dark, devilish carnival. This book is set at the turn on the early 1900's, a time period I love to read about.

Book Review No. 50 - The Witching Hour by Silver RavenWolf

Book review #50 on the site, how exciting! I've been feeling a little more witchy than usual, although I still have no energy. I'm lucky to spend a few minutes of meditation beneath a moon. Here is to new things on the horizon though, as this is a good time of the year for reflection and introspection.

I've never read one of Silver RavenWolf's books before, although she is a well-known new age writer. I really didn't know what to expect when reading "The Witching Hour", but I approached it with an open mind and I am glad I did.
