A BOOK BY THE BROOK – Weird Witchy Words

Finds tongues in trees, books in running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.

A Book by the Brook: Book Reviews at FriendlyFairyTales.com

If fantasy and magic are your cup of tea, you’ll enjoy the Shifter by Janice Hardy, the Apprentice Witch by James Nichol and the Peculiar Haunting of Thelma Bee by Erin Petti. The first has magical healers, the second has a girl who’s in over her head trying to help a community in peril and the third has spells that predate pagans. So if you want a break from the news, sit a spell and weave magic with great writers.

Autumnal treat

Speaking of gilded tomes, I read the Apprentice Witch by James Nicol, and it was delicious! Now I’m in the middle of Black Witch, very suspenseful. I’m also reading Hunter, Elite and Apex by Mercedes Lackey. Yum, such fun! A little magic with my Halloween chocolate. And here is some magic from Lavender.

Lavender Moon: Artist, Poet and Lover of Nature

Autumn’s door closes as

Winter’s door opens to

A welcoming hearth of

Glowing embers: friends remembered.

Bessoms sweeping crispy leaves,

Birds feeding on filigree seeds.

Sipping warm mead, reading

Gilded tomes about far away homes,

goblins, gnomes, fairies and

Treasure troves.
