My Thoughts:

picture-7When I first pulled this book from it’s wrapper, my first thought was, “Oh hell, I hope this isn’t some HP Mallory crap.” I immediately hated the cover and I was prepared to hate the entire book. Imagine my surprise when I found myself loving the book. In time even the cover grew on me — okay, that’s not true.

Love Magic is nicely written, paced well, organized well, and packed with clipart. Having said that, some clipart of the plants in the  Materia Magica chapter would have been a little more helpful. I think that I would like to have seen a little less Psalms and a little more in the way of an Index. As a History major, I loved the Suggested Reading, and the little touches of History and Folklore scattered throughout the book.

All in all, this is a damn fine book. I love reading about how someone explores their own spirituality. In many ways it makes me think of Mrs. B’s Guide to Household Witchery or the Hedge Witch Book of Days. I don’t know about food for passion but that fig recipe looked pretty tasty. Mmmmmmmm figs.

I’m giving Love Magic by Lilith Dorsey 5 stars out of 5 and I consider it a must-have for your esoteric home library.
