Witch: The Wild Ride from Wicked to Wicca | Candace Savage
7 posts | 6 read | 8 to read
Witches have always been figures electric with possibility, feared as menacing hags but also standing as towering images of female rebellion. Trace their wild ride across the centuries, flying on brooms, turning into animals, making spirit journeys, visiting the dead, casting spells, and causing or healing illnesses. Every age has fashioned this legendary shapeshifter to fulfill its dreams and nightmares, and she has transformed from Renaissance devil worshipper to fairy-tale character to New Age priestess. A brilliant study going far beyond the witch-hunts of the 1600s.

BookishTrish @StayCurious It actually worked out pretty perfectly - I was reading a 14-day copy of The Institute and so wouldn‘t have started it until today either way 1w
FantasyChick @BookishTrish It's huge but you wouldn't believe how quickly it reads! I think we are all a little bit behind right now. I'm still working on City of Girls. Happens 🤷‍♀️ 1w
FantasyChick @Andrea4 Like blew up, blew up?? 😱 1w
Andrea4 @FantasyChick would it sound terrible if I said blowing up blowing up would have been better? Lmao 1w

Finished and going to send off soon! I'll be including a little something in the package too 😘
I won't say much here but I enjoyed this (if even I found it a little chronologically jumpy at times) & now I want to create a wall of witch depictions for fun lol

StayCurious I got the book and I‘m excited to dig in! Also thank you for the lovely tea🤗 3mo
Andrea4 @StayCurious yes! Perfect timing!!! And you're welcome :) last bookclub I did, I chose a tea for each book, this was slightly more confined Haha. Hope you like it! 3mo

StayCurious Wow what an eclectic collection! I haven‘t read any of these so I‘m ok with anything 5mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I've read Homegoing, but any other looks good to me . 😊 5mo
Andrea4 @StayCurious haha 🙈 yea, normally I tell people my tastes are a little all over the place! 5mo
Andrea4 @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I figured a few would have read this- I'm slow on this bandwagon! Haha 5mo
FantasyChick Ooooh options! So my votes are for The Humans because it sounds weird as hell, Lighthousekeeping just because why not or Witches because... I mean, witches! 😂 I'm good with whatever though, lol 5mo
Andrea4 @FantasyChick yea The Humand keeps catching my eye. And witches are always fun, right? 5mo
FantasyChick Don't get me started on my witch phase 😉 5mo
Andrea4 @FantasyChick um yea I had a ...phase too. Hehehe, ***hides cauldron and wand*** 5mo
BookishTrish I love the look of the witches one and think reading Garcia Marquez with you would be way more rewarding than going it alone. I‘ve read Homegoing and The Humans, but would happily reread either. 5mo
Andrea4 @FantasyChick ☺️☺️☺️ 5mo
StayCurious @Andrea4 cool😄 5mo

Took a break from Rita's bio only to see her pop up in a book on witches!

RealBooks4ever What is her connection to witches? 🤔 2y
bloodylovely Literally nothing as far as I can tell. There's no explanation. It's sort of near a section about women's seductiveness being witchery so I guess it's because she's sexy? Pretty random tho. 2y
