Metal Never Lies is a book written about metal magic by author Sam ‘Bo’ Thompson. I didn’t know anything about this book until the author reached out on Instagram and asked if I thought about adding his book to my library. Curious, and because I work with Brigid, I said I’d add it and give it a read! I’m really glad I did because this book changed my perspective on working with metal.

Witchy Book Review: Rebel Witch by Kelly-Ann Maddox!
Rebel Witch by Kelly-Ann Maddox is a great book for those new to witchcraft. She covers many topics from a secular point of view including holidays, spirits and divine beings, spellwork, and community.

A Guide of Spirits by Chris Allaun || Book Review
Pagan Portals: Lugh || Book Review
For such a short book, Lugh is jam-packed with information any new seeker of Lugh would need. Morgan Daimler does a wonderful job sharing important information about the history of Lugh, His stories across different Celtic regions, and ways we as modern polytheists may connect with Him. I wanted to point out something I find very important. In the Author’s Note, Morgan Daimler makes it clear that she uses the Irish spelling whenever possible but that there was no standardized Irish spelling before the 20th century. This can make some names and words hard for an English speaker to grasp, but there is a pronunciation guide at the end of the book.
The Dabbler’s Guide to Witchcraft || Book Review
Fire Lyte’s new book, The Dabbler’s Guide to Witchcraft published by Simon and Schuster, is one of the better books on witchcraft that I have read in a very long time. In his book, Fire Lyte promises to deliver practical knowledge to help you build a better foundation in witchcraft whether you’re just getting started or you’ve been doing it for a while. In a book targeted at the average person with an interest in witchcraft, Fire Lyte manages to dispel many myths and misconceptions about witchcraft while offering different perspectives and food for thought.

How to Learn Tarot by Jess Carlson || Book Review
This book was refreshing to see because of the way it approaches learning tarot. This is not a book that you pick up to learn the meanings of the cards.
