    The Magic of Marie Laveau

    The Magic of Marie Laveau: An Honest Review The Magic of Marie Laveau is a book that I wish I had picked up a lot earlier than I actually did. In my own bias, I stubbornly let it sit on my shelf for a few weeks as I caught up on other books thinking, oh I’ll get there when I’m ready. As perhaps ignorant as it sounds, I don’t devote a whole lot of time towards reading books about voodoo/hoodoo and felt as though this book maybe wasn’t going to be for me. I was wrong. Every notion I had about this book before reading it was wrong, quite frankly.…

    Backwoods Witchcraft ; A Review

    📚Book Review: Backwoods Witchcraft by @jake_richards13 📚 I’ve read this book no less than three times in the span of the two weeks I’ve had it and I’ve honestly wondered how I’m going to review it. Let me start by saying this: this book is not for everyone but it SURE AS HELL was for me. Why? I’m a folk witch, I live in the south, and this book felt like coming home.

Folk witchcraft is a unique branch of witchcraft that changes not only from person to person but also changes from…
