I've been a collector of books about witchcraft and wicca for quite a few years now and when I saw that there was a book specifically for Eclectic Witches being released I knew I needed to get a copy. There are many books available for Green Witches, Sea Witches, Kitchen Witches and various others but not many specifically written about life as an eclectic witch, I assume because it is a relatively new term used. The term hasn't been widely used for many years but essentially cover those who like to work in a variety of ways. 

What is an Eclectic witch? 
''Eclectic witches tend to cherry-pick whatever practices, rituals, beliefs, or ideas feel natural and good to them in the moment. After all, witchcraft is a very personal and unique pursuit. If you don’t want to be tied down to any one practice or area, maybe you’re an eclectic witch.''

This book covers pretty much everything you could want to know so would be perfect for anyone just starting out or wanting to learn about witchcraft in general. This book would also be great for anyone already on a journey with witchcraft, it has space within the book for you to write notes and information. You could use it as a grimoire, or if you have already started one this would be good to write notes in specific to different areas of your witchcraft. That way the book becomes personal to you, a keepsake and reference book rather than simply another book on the shelf. 

It would also make a lovely present as it is beautifully bound and has stunning illustrations throughout.

It is certainly a book that once you own you will want to keep and regularly refer back to.
