My List of Books, Resources and Blogs for Pagans, Wiccans and Witches

20 comments:

  1. We share a lot of books in common, some I haven't heard of and will most likely get.

    As I saw The Spiral Dance, a smile instantly appeared, my first book on the Goddess and remains one of the most influential.

    Thank you for a wonderful blog that I've been following, on the other side of the ocean.

    Many blessings

    1. Thank you so much for reading! Spiral Dance was one of my first books on the subject. It's starting to show some age, but it's still a fantastic book, particularly on the feminine divine.

      Best wishes!

  2. wow, Thanks for all the time this post must have taken. Your blog just keeps getting better, lots of diversity of topics. I had to share that the first witchy book I ever bought was earth, air, fire,water by cunningham when I was about 10-11. Waaaay, back when 11 years old was still quite young. I still remember the whole event like it was yesterday. ;) I think I may have even colored in some of the artwork with colored pencil. Wow, many hours spent pouring over that book. Ps. this tv. season will have two witchy new shows one on the lifetime channel called the witches of eastend based on a book series. I am very excited about that one. And an american horror story show has a spin off one called coven although that one looks a bit too spooky for me. Buffy gives me nightmares ha!
    Thanks again! This post will help loads of folks.

    1. Thank you so much, A! I did see the two new witch-themed shows coming out this season and I'm very excited! We need more witches on the screen. I'll have to dig up some time to check them out.

      Thank you so much for reading and responding! It's always appreciated!

  3. Thank you for this post! I absolutely love Earth, Air, Fire, and Water and Magical Household. Both are great books. However I feel like all I've ever read is Cunningham and Buckland (not entirely true), so your list will be a great reference for me.

  8. Some books definitely worth checking out are Gothic Grimoire and Nocturnal Witchcraft by Konstantinos, and anything by Christopher Penzack. Both authors give some really great perspectives on Magick.

  10. Just started reading your blog. Fabulous and very informational. I was wondering if you could suggest a good book for my 9 year old. My family ( husband and daughter and I) are pagans I tend to lean toward naturalistic Wiccan practices with an emphasis on the Goddess. My daughter is ready to start learning more in depth about our spirituality. I do my best to encourage her to look inward for her light and to talk with the goddess. She has had some amazing experiences meditating and communing with the Goddess but she is ready to begin doing more research to develop her own believes and practices. She really wants to learn more about casting the circle and ritual. Unfortunately I am not able to teach her as much as I would like because I have MS. We tend to get caught up with the day to day and we forget to celebrate some of our Sabbath's. Could you recommend a book that would be appropriate for my nine-year-old. I greatly appreciate your time and all the effort you have put into this blog. I know it is a creation of your faith and I humbly appreciate it.

    1. She is a good reader too, so an age appropriate book for an older child would be fine. Thank you again for your time.
