“The practical mantras and rituals in Basic Witches help banish toxic vibes and summon the sorcery to lead an empowered life. Pairs well with a cauldron of rosé.”— Los Angeles Times

Magic, indeed.”—Tor.com

Okay, enough about the illustrations, let me talk about the actual book. This book is a real eye-opener. No, it's not a book on how to become a witch or summon Satan. No, it's a self-help book that teaches you how to be the person you want to be, and how to step outside society's expectations and be yourself. This book teaches you how to be confident and firm and how to say no and walk away from toxic people in your life. I think what resonated the most for me was the chapter on letting go of toxic people and relationships. I seem to always struggle with finding friends that like me for me and not only when they need something. This book helped me to slowly disassociate myself from these people and find some peace of mind. I like how this book has a bit of humour to it and it's got a fun style of writing. I strongly recommend this book to anyone that needs a little boost! XD
A lot of the spells are basic and simple, I wouldn't personally use most of them but it's great for beginners or anyone wishing to dip their toes into witchcraft.
Overall it's a good read for anyone.
