Enchantments: A Modern Witch's Guide to Self-Possession Reviews
This book is funny! It's more about the practical application of putting out what you expect to get back then about bubble, bubble toil and trouble. Mya Spalter is a refreshing voice that is more like having lunch with a girlfriend.
An amazing book if you are interested in spellcrafting, magic or general metaphysical topics. It covered most of the material I learned in an Intro to ritual class I paid a lot more than this book for and did it in a fun and understandable way. Mya Spalter is very relatable and reading her book feels like talking to a friend. If magic or ritual work intimidates or is new to you definitely read this book. There's also quirky insights from Enchantments the NYC magic shop she works at, so even if y ...more
As a thank you to Netgalley for supplying me with the advanced readers copy of “ Enchantments: A Modern Witch’s Guide to Self-Possession” I am providing my thoughts and an honest review of this text. Coming into this text I figured it would be but another new age book giving information on palmistry, astrology, and more. I was wrong. Sure it offered all those things but did them what I feel was a personal way. Mya Spalters experience shows throughout its pages and is one that feels more of a con ...more
I listened to the audio version read by the author and it was one of the best I've listened to in a long time. Mya Spalter has a unique voice and you can tell she's having fun with her subject. She explains magical logic really well. This is a really great intro for beginners and a fun refresher for everyone else.
This book was well ...Enchanting. A breath of fresh air explaining rituals, spells and magic in clear precise terms that if you can read, you can do. I loved the way she talks about setting up an alter. Using what she finds or has as opposed to taking a huge list and getting everything exactly as some books recommend or you can't be a real witch ( I do the same thing). She covers Wicca and Neo-pagan beliefs and what she goes over can be used no matter who and what you worship. The moon signs, co ...more
I had the pleasure of reviewing this book through NetGalley. My longer review is at my blog. http://www.amberunmasked.com/review-e...
Mya Spalter created an entertaining and budget-friendly look on modern witchcraft. She also laid things bare about working at Enchantments, the oldest witch shop in New York City. She talked about some creepy customers; and was totally honest about why the staff might come off as cold or moody on certain days. Her advice is none other than practical.

I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I enjoyed this magick take on basics and the wit that just went into the pages of this book was amazing. The advice is practical and humorous at times. I loved the way the book came together and the author shared a lot of herself and that made it worth the read. I have been practicing myself for a several years and this just made me feel good. It has been awhile since I enjoyed a non-fiction book in this category so much.
