ARC Breakdown 

*Thanks to NetGalley for an ARC of this book that I read voluntarily* 

So I love books like these. I love seeing what different people use for different herbs, fruits, nuts, so on and so on. That's what this book is all about, it's showing you everyday items that you get from the store that can be used in magic, some of the things to me are a bit I don't know... I mean toothpaste? It's all in the eyes of the beholder but I will be honest, I don't see toothpaste as magical but hey, if you do, that's great! To each their own.

I will say that I enjoyed this book and highlighted some passages that I liked and that fit with me. It's a great reference book and I loved that the author added nuts. It's not something I've seen a lot of for some reason and so that was nice. It's even got a small section on the phases of the moon and color correspondences. It's a nice little book that I fully recommend to anyone who is into this kind of stuff.
