Book Review: Everyday Enchantments by Maria F. DeBlassie (2018)

Everyday Enchantments by Maria F. DeBlassie is not what I expected. Diving in, I expected another spell book instead it was a thing of beauty. It was a lyrical account of a witches everyday life and this is what magic is, the ability to see the magic intertwined in each and every thing we do on a day to day basis. It brought the art of mindfulness alive for me, much more so than any mindfulness textbook ever has. It was poetic and flowing, I haven’t felt so touched by a book like this since Emma Restall Orr’s Spirits of the Sacred Grove. If you are racing through life from experience to experience maybe slow down and read this book to revel in the beauty of the simple things. If anything this is just beautifully written and I’m sure even non witches and Pagans would find inspiration here. It brought to life the authors culture and her experiences in New Mexico, maybe not something that I have a personal connection with but the author transported me there with her. Little nuggets of magical wisdom are hidden away within the authors words if you take the time to explore.

5/5. Inspirational mindfulness. Get a cup of tea, wrap yourself in a home made blanket, cast away aspirations of perfection and love life and yourself just as it is and you are.

About thewytchinghourblog

I'm a horror loving librarian with the need to share reviews of everything horror, gore and spooky related. I'm an avid reader of books, mainly horror, definitely supernatural. I'm a pagan and like to define myself as an eclectic witch. Halloween/Samhain is my favourite time of year from everything pumpkin spiced, the scent of decay and the veil between worlds thinning. So, here we are to share all things blood splattered, things that go bump in the night and crawl out of the darkness.
