Do you feel like you are one with nature and the cycles of the moon? If the answer is yes, then you should take a look at the book Spellbound: The Teenage Witch's Wiccan Handbook.

Author: Teresa Moorey

Do you feel like you are one with nature? Do you often know what people are going to say before they even open their mouths? Have you ever felt a deep connection to the moon, its cycles and the changing of seasons? If the answer to these questions is yes, then you should take a look at Spellbound: The Teenage Witch's Wiccan Handbook. And don't worry - it's not some creepy manual on how to dress in black and dance naked under the moon. It's an interesting and informative book for those who are curious about that mysterious religion, known as Wicca.


Spellbound is a great book for teens who are still unsure of the religious path they want to follow. It gives a good background of where Wicca originated, tells of [kwlink 1608]ancient traditions and then gives suggestions on how teens can incorporate these ideas into their lives in the 21st century. Throughout the book, there are mini questionnaires that the reader can take to help them see whether Wicca is for them.


I think one of the best things about Spellbound is that it shows readers that you don't have to join a coven and completely dedicate your life to the Goddess. You can take the parts of the Wiccan religion that work for you and use them to better your life. A big part of the book is focused on self-image and has a ton of great examples on how you can make yourself feel good about just being you. There's definitely not enough of that message out there today.


I found that some of the concepts in Spellbound were dumbed-down too much, leaving you wanting just a bit more of an explanation. That means it's easy to get hooked on the material in Spellbound. Willow and Tara, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, would be all over this book!

So even if you don't plan on coming out of the broom closet anytime soon by declaring yourself a full-fledged witch, Spellbound is still worth reading for the positive messages.


Spellbound Rating: 4


1 I am very interested in becoming Wiccan because I tried a few spells and I felt a great connection with the Goddess. I think that your arcticle on Spellbound was interesting and now I am eager to read the book! Thank you lots!

    When I was younger I used to order a McChicken sandwich with two apple pies and a small coke with a happy meal. Now I order it without the happy meal. I'm dying for the McRib to come back, it's my favorite food there. Today,it doesn't really matter what I order at McDonald's. The food there is unhealthily tasty.
