Book Review No. 31 - The Little Big Book of White Spells by Ileana Abrev
Hello! Welcome back, how are you? Back again for another book review, well come on in and sit a spell.
I've just finished Ileana Abrev's "The Little Bog Book of White Spells", which is a good spell book with some useful information in it. I've read several different types of spell books, and this one is pretty on par with what to expect.
Abrev discusses how to get started using this book and the basics
of spell working. How to set up a altar, color magic, some crystal work, correspondence charts, items
you will need to set up a practice, all of this is useful setting the groundwork for being successful. This is great for beginners, and a useful reference or refresher for the more advanced worker.
This book has a wide range of different spell workings, ideas for candle spells, love spells, workings for letting go and so on. Most of these are easy to do, with ingredients and supplies that shouldn't be too hard to find. I do appreciate that in a spell book (or well any "crafting" book for that matter) as trying to find ingredients like eye of bat and tongue of newt can be hard to come by. My favorite section of this book is titled "Once, Twice but not a Third Time Around". These are quick spells Abrev designed to get your message across quickly without having to to terribly long workings.
If you have other spell books, you may not need this one. I liked some of the workings in it, but nothing in this was dramatically new. That isn't a bad thing, but if you already have a shelf full of spell books you may not "need" this one. If you are just starting out and your collection is small, I can recommend this book. Seems to have a solid foundation for to grow upon and these are easy workings and information you can do and use to gain confidence in yourself. I enjoyed the book, I found it useful as I love reading about how other people approach the craft.
