‘The Modern Witchcraft Grimoire’ explores how a grimoire records your personal journal through the world of magick. It’s where you record your favourite spells, chronicle your magical developments, and keep your most treasured secrets. Skye Alexander, spell craft expert and author, teaches you how to create your own.

I’m relatively new to Skye Alexander’s work, having owned a few but never delving into more than a few chapters at a time. This book however, was one I was really interested in reading cover to cover. All in all, this book didn’t disappoint.

Although, this book may be for the beginner Witch, this book is by no means unhelpful for everyone more experienced. With pearls of wisdom dotted throughout the pages, The Modern Witchcraft Grimoire offers a more deeper understanding of the world of Books of Shadows and their potential.
I found this book to be personally incredibly inspiring, offering lots of information as well as examples and spell offerings to readers. I found it incredibly helpful and interesting to read, especially as it explores such a broad topic in a detailed and effective way. However, there were a few times where I skimmed the pages, there being a some information that I already knew, however, that isn’t at the fault of the author in the slightest.

Overall, I deeply enjoyed this book. It was fun, interesting and insightful, and I can’t wait to delve more into Skye Alexander’s work again soon. As someone who’s passion is in journaling and recording my spiritual practice, this book was a brilliant read and I highly recommend it for likeminded people.
