4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

The Eclectic Witch’s Book of Shadows is a beginners reference book for those who are looking to build their practice from the ground up. This book gives basic introductions and quick references for all the basics of witchcraft elements, like candle magic, divination, stones, gods and goddesses and so on. Within each section there are multiple blank pages so you can include your own notes for your craft. 

This is a great beginners guide/ reference book. I loved how each section was laid out and how simple everything was broken down. Even if you aren’t a beginner, this would be a good reference for basic elements like stones and gods/goddesses. I also really loved that she provided blank pages with every section so you could really make this book of shadows your own, especially for those who might be overwhelmed at the thought of creating one from scratch, this takes away some of that anxiety. 

Not only is the information well presented, but the accompanying artwork was beautiful. Mickie Mueller did an amazing job at illustrating this book of shadows. It really is a beautiful book, which I think will make people want to reference it more, especially those of us who aren’t great at making a book of shadows pretty. 

Overall, this was a very informative, and easy to read, beginners book of shadows. I highly recommend this book for beginners or anyone who is looking for a simple reference book.
