A Practical Guide For Witches by Ylva Mara Radziszewski is one of the better witchcraft books I’ve read this year – and I’ve read quite a

few. I found the author’s inclusive and welcoming approach to the practice to be very calming and reassuring. The book was well written, easy to follow, and packed with a wealth of historical knowledge and modern practice.

There’s a little bit of everything in this book, from spells & charms to practical everyday advice, and philosophies on practice. If you are a practicing witch, or just someone interested in learning a little more about modern witchcraft, I’d recommend this book as a good place to start, as well as a useful reference for your library.
