Lately, I have been asked about suggested reading material. I know that many others, from time to time, will offer up a list of “good reads”. Over the years, I have written down the titles of books that I either read from cover to cover and couldn’t put down, or, titles of books that I use as reference… ALOT!
Many of these books are also found on the suggested reading lists of other practitioners – such as Moma Sarah (Conjured Cardea), Matthew Venus, even Starr Casas herself, has recommended many of these. This is NOT all inclusive, but will give a very well-rounded picture! Enjoy!
