To Ride A Silver Broomstick - A Review


Throughout the world there is a New Generation of Witches - people practicing or wishing to practice the Craft on their own, without an in-the-flesh magickal support group. "To Ride a Silver Broomstick" presents both the science and religion of Witchcraft so you can become an active participant while growing at your own pace. This book is ideal for anyone, regardless of religious background: male or female, young or old, beginners and initiates.

My Thoughts

No spoilers, I don't even know if it's possible to spoil this kind of book.

I know there are lots and lots of people who absolutely hate Silver RavenWolf but I don't. Hers was the second book I ever read about Wicca, the first being The Big Blue Book by none other than Raymond Buckland. I read other reviews of her books and people say that she talks down to the reader, I didn't feel that way at all. I like her writing, it's friendly and easy to understand even for the younger crowd. Her writing makes me feel like she is sitting right in front of me. Like we are having a conversation. I really like that! 

I know people also say that if you read anything by Llewellyn Publications then you're being given the fluffy bunny stuff or that you can't be a real witch/wiccan/pagan if you read their stuff. I don't feel that way. I really love Llewellyn, I enjoy their books and own quite a few with the intent to get more. I do also read from other publishers as well. The point I'm going for here, it's personal preference. Like what you like because you like it. Don't let people dictate what you think. If Llewellyn books help you along you journey then read them. If Silver RavenWolf is an author that helps you understand better than read her work. I've read most of her work and even own a few of her books.

Now the actual review, this is the basic of basic into Wicca, it's easy to understand. There is a lot of very helpful things in here to get you started. I do recommend getting other books to go along with this as some things she just barely touches on. Like I said, it's a very basic book, great for a first timer or someone who just wants to test the waters before jumping in head first.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading! 

Bisexual Erasure (Pride Month)

Happy Pride! Since today is bisexual day, I wanted to talk about something important to me. I hope you'll listen with open ears, mind, and heart. Thank you.  I’ve seen this happening for years now. People will say things like, “it’s a phase” or “pick a side.” I’ve even seen some say that bisexual people only like cisgender men and women and exclude all other genders. Which isn’t always the case. Sure, some bisexual people feel that way, which is why pansexual and other names came into play. But at its core, being bisexual just means that you’re attracted to more than just one gender.  I’ve never hidden on this blog the fact that I’m bisexual but I rarely talk about the struggles I feel because it just never felt right when you have gay people that have to hide their complete selves for fear of what the world could do to them.  Or trans people who spend every day trapped in the wrong body and can’t tell anyone to get the things they need to be their truth selves.  Put against issues
