It’s January and although I’m not a fan of the New Year’s Resolution the start of the year is a great time to pick up your 365 day, or your “something” a day, type of book. Now I happen to have in my possession the most adorable little spell a day book you could ever want to own.
“A Spell A Day: For Health, Wealth, Love, and More” by Cassandra Eason is an amazingly diverse book of spells that quite literally has a spell for every occasion. First off, there are 366 spells in case of it being a leap year. Good catch Eason! Second, her introduction mentions that idea of opening the book for a spell at random. Suggesting that perhaps the spell you need will find you. I love that kind of thing. Third, it has a great index. With spell books, you want a good index because at some point you’re going to want to find some spell you read and you are NOT going to remember what day it was on.
Lastly, did I mention how cute it is? For reals yo. It fits perfectly into my small girl hands, and more importantly I can hold it open with one hand, which means just about anyone should be able to hold it while casting spells. It has a nice heft. It’s got a nice fabric and embossed spine. The font is in purple (I like purple). If the spells weren’t done so well, you could mistake “A Spell a Day” as a puff piece based on the book’s lovely physical appearance. Just remember, you should never judge a book by its cover. Just consider it a bonus feature when it’s awesome!
Cassandra Eason has crafted an interesting and diverse book of spells that, in my opinion, a beginning or experienced magic practitioner would find worth adding to their collection.
