I love listening to podcasts every day, there are so many interesting things to listen to. These are some favourites of mine. What are your favourite podcasts?
Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audiobook. Full of Scottish history, folklore and witchcraft plus a Scottish narrator, it was a joy to read from start to finish
🧙🏼♀️There are many types of witches. I class myself as a mix of crystal/green witch as I mainly work with crystals, herbs, plants, incense and oils. I also enjoy tarot, oracle and bibliomancy as well as dabbling in other parts of the craft. It has brought so much joy to my life and made me a very spiritual person 🧙🏼♀️
🧙 Very much enjoyed the second book in this series, the plot was very interesting for such short books. Elements of witchcraft, alchemy and magic while getting across how dangerous it was to be labelled a witch back in the day 🧙
🧙🏼♀️ A very quick but interesting story set at the time of the witch trials. Jealousy, lust and greed put a man wrongly at risk of hanging for witchcraft, his new wife has her own magic that may save him. Enjoyed this story a lot and will be reading book 2 next 🧙🏼♀️
For #witch October I will be posting witchy content daily to go along with my only reading witch/witchcraft related books. Crystals are one of my favourite things and I work with them on a daily basis,
Some of my favourite crystals are Celestite, Charoite, Clear quartz, Citrine, Amethyst, Lapis Lazuli, Tourmaline, Bloodstone and and Mangano Calcite to name a few! Do you have any favourites?
Set in London during the blitz, book cataloguer Saul prior is summoned for an interview to work in the library at Thool abbey but nothing is as it seems. The occult, witches, folklore and cults are the norm there and there is no way for Saul to leave
I thought this was excellent and very creepy
🦇 I‘m so excited for only reading books about #witches and #witchcraft in October that I‘ve already started a couple from my tbr! I own so many witchy books that it‘ll be nice to get through a few that I‘ve been wanting to read for a while 🦇
The midwich cuckoos- 3.5/5. Really enjoyed this weird story, Fry is a great narrator
The storyteller 4/5. Loved this memoir, Grohl came across as very humble and kind
The asylum 3/5. A gothic mystery about a woman mysteriously waking up in an asylum
Mrs England 4/5. Loved this atmospheric gothic mystery where a nanny works for a strange family
Flowers in the attic 3.5/5. Enjoyed this haunting novel very much
Set in 1980‘s Ireland this is a very short but impactful read following a kind hearted man realising something sinister in the confines of the church. I had never heard of Magdalen laundries before reading this and found it very sad. I always love books set in Ireland. 4 ⭐️
Very much enjoyed this feminist retelling of the Iliad which was emotional as well as dark and graphic. Many parts are difficult to read for the sheer suffering of the women, there are definitely some trigger warnings in this one
The story flowed nicely while the descriptions of people and places were rich and easily imagined
Looking forward to reading the next book!
🧙 Since I have hundreds of witchy books to read I thought I would spend the entire month of October only reading books featuring witches to get some read from my tbr. These are only a few that I have in mind but I may decide on others, I have plenty to choose from! 🧙
Happy birthday ❤️ Agatha Christie in Paris c1906/7
What‘s your favourite Christie book?
This is the only Austen book that I have liked. Maybe because of the more gothic/mystery feel. I really liked Catherine as the main character but the main thing I liked was that it was actually very funny which I didn‘t expect. I don‘t think I‘ll read any more Austen but I was curious about this one and it was a satirical quick listen
I‘ve read and watched everything I can find on this case and firmly believe the 3 accused are guilty. The evidence against them is compelling, it‘s far too much to go into here but can all be found online. I learned more about their past from this book and the red flags are glaring.
We must never forget the 3 innocent lives that were taken. These poor little boys suffered tremendously and it seems they will never get proper justice 💔
Yes please 😁
