This magical middle grade read is everything I could have hoped for, with a talking cat, a plucky heroine, and Girl Guides that are witches!
It has taken me forever to read this book, but I think I did actually end up reading it at just the right time…Continue reading “Review: The Once and Future Witches by Alix E Harrow”
It’s the end of February already! Here’s a quick round up of the few Februwitchy books I did manage to get to. If you need a reminder of what was on my original TBR, that’s here, and my halfway check-in is here.Continue reading “Februwitchy Final Check-In”
February is here and with it comes the start of #Februwitchy! This is my second year running this very casual witchy readathon, and I’m really excited to show you my TBR – if you need more details about the readathon itself, you can find the introductory post here.
I’ve picked out thirteen books that meet the witchy requirements – this is a dual-purpose TBR that works for both #Februwitchy and my general monthly TBR challenge, so let’s see what’s on the cards this month!Continue reading “My #Februwitchy TBR”
A bit of an unusual review from me today – a beautiful tarot deck!
Fez Inkwright’s Folk Magic and Healing now has a darker sibling! Botanical Curses and Poisons looks at the folklore and science behind evil, cursed, and poisonous plants in a book just as beautiful as its companion.
Succulents and Spells is an adorable f/f contemporary fantasy full of sweetness, magic and monster science!
When I saw this gorgeous cover pop up on my Twitter feed, I was instantly intrigued by this book, and the blurb only sold me more – a queer, witchy story about supportive friends hexing rude guys sounded perfect! The Scapegracers ended up being not quite what I expected, but I think it’s a brilliant, and much needed, addition to the YA shelves.
It’s been quite a while since I reviewed Cauldron’s Bubble, the first book in the Shakespeare-inspired Netherfeld trilogy, but today I’m finally wrapping up the trilogy with a review of books two and three!
Many Comic Cons past, I fell in love with the art of Fez Inkwright (@rosdottir on Twitter), who combines beautiful art with folklore and witchiness, and is also a hugely sweet person. I have several pieces of her art up around my house, and I also bought her self-published book, Folk Magic and Healing: An Unusual History of British Plants. So I was thrilled when the last time I saw her, she told me it had been picked up by a publisher for a swanky expanded, hardback release – and even more thrilled when Liminal 11 offered me the chance to review the new edition!
