This book is just like the rest of the series, wonderfully written and oh so helpful. I learned so much that I didn't know. I honestly don't know if it's good for the advanced but when it comes to beginners like me, it's great!

I would like to thank Llewellyn Worldwide, Ltd. for a free ARC of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an open and honest review.
Another great reference book from Llewellyn Worldwide for those wishing to learn more about the sacred ‘Wheel of the year’.
This is the second book in the ‘Llewellyn...

This book was interesting and informative, however, I feel like it was a bit rushed or just looked over since it is one of the "lesser" sabbats. I found a lot of typos, awkward sentences, or repetitious wording/phrasing through out the last few sections of the book that should have been caught by...

I liked this volume more than the Yule one, mostly because it remained pretty firmly fixed in Brigid lore, rather than being spread across a broader variety of cultures. This gives it a depth- although I also appreciate a broader approach!
Imbolc is a quiet festival, and the crafts and rituals des...

A nice quick read with great info. I wish there were more recipes and crafts but otherwise a good reference for the sabbat.

This book was better than I expected, and that's always a good thing. I wasn't sure how much I'd get out of it, as Imbolc is not a sabbat I've ever had all that much affinity for. Happily, this book covers a range of situations. It starts by describing what may be the typical climate of the UK in...

Imbolc, or the Wiccan/Pagan/NeoPagan sabbat that honors the halfway (-ish) mark between the winter solstice and the spring equinox, is cause to celebrate the returning of warmth, sunlight, and new growth in the natural world that surrounds us (and is also inside of us). This book gives a broad hi...

This is a good book for beginner Wiccans or Neopagans who are celebrating the sabbats for the first time. It offers ideas for rituals (solitary or group-oriented), recipes/crafts, and invocations and prayers for the sabbat, Imbolc. It definitely gave me a few ideas for how to celebrate this year,...

I didn't like this one as much as the Yule one. It was alright. I will be using one of the ritual ideas, but in a different way, so there was useful stuff here. Just not as much as I would have liked. I don't know. I'm not entirely sure why I'm left feeling "meh" about this. Maybe because I just...

I've written kind things about this series before, so rather than repeat myself, I'll just say this book delivers on what it promises. A great intro book for anyone looking to celebrate 2/2 pagan-style.
