In My Own Words:
I have been Wiccan for 20 years, the last 10 as a solitary practitioner. I am involved in girl's sports (coach) and have four children, 3 girls, one boy, and a wonderful husband. I am amazed by the number of books on Wicca there are now, compared to when I started. I just wish they were all as good.

Solitary Witch: The Ultimate Book of Shadows for t&hellip by Silver RavenWolf
0 of 1 people found the following review helpful
Solitary Witch is a collection of information, some good, some bad, spliced together with Silver Ravenwolf's quick-fix low theology Wicca lite.
I gave it two stars, instead of one, because it shows that perhaps Ravenwolf has been listening to her community. She still gets many things wrong-NOT ALL WITCHES ARE WICCAN, for example, but she seems to be trying.
I would recommend anything by Cunningham, Buckland or Dunwich above this book, but if you are a teen who, for whatever reason, feels you need a dumbed down teen book, this is heads and tails over "Teen Witch" for quality.

Advanced Wicca by Patricia Telesco
Advanced Wicca by Patricia Telesco
4.0 out of 5 stars Intermediate., Aug. 1 2003
There are four good advanced books out right now, and this one is smack in the middle of them for difficulty and level of skill.
The theology present in this book is interesting, but I founfd the work of little use to my own practice-too magicky.
Perhaps Advanced Magick would be a better title, as it is much more magick than Wicca.
If possible, glance over it before you buy it.
Unless you are a true newb, there Is a chance none of this will be new to you.
Deepening Witchcraft: Advancing Skills & Knowledge by Grey Cat
There are four good advanced books out right now, and three or four bad books that have advanced in the title. These good ones are Deeping Witchcraft, Advanced Wicca, Wicca 333 and Elements of Ritual.
Of these four, it is difficult to say which is best, because each of them provides a different set of advanced information.
Of them, Deepening Witchcraft is probably the most intermediate book... the one for the student just ascending to the 200 level.
It contains much more than any 101 book, and makes assumptions about what you know, but people WILL be disappointed by the lack of "higher" advanced material in the book.
I, myself, am probably above the target age… Read more
