Witch, Please: A Fun-Size Review

Blessed be, my witchy babes. Onward with the blogging… amazing how much time a girl has when she’s not planning a wedding, isn’t it?

Today, I’m bringing back an oldie: the Fun-Size Review, in which I talk about a recent read in less than 100 words. I just finished one of my most anticipated summer reads, Pam Grossman’s Waking the Witch: Reflections on Women, Magic, and Power. Here we go!

Waking the Witch: Reflections on Women, Magic, and Power


No surprises when I say this book was extremely my jam. It’s combination of personal witchy development narrative, historical overview, pop culture analysis, and examination of the current American political shitshow climate and how the witch fits therein. So it’s also kind of a mess. I felt that Grossman was trying to fit too much into one book. It definitely could have used a tighter structure – the introduction of topics often felt very random – as well as a tighter a focus. I’d read a whole book on the witch in pop culture, which was by far my favourite part. I’d definitely recommend this for baby witches, though, and any Muggles looking for a gentle introduction to the subject.
