Forty years after satanic panic first gripped the United States, witchcraft is one of the fastest growing spiritual practices in the country. If you’re looking to get into witchcraft or just want to dig deeper into your budding practice, let this list of spell books guide you.

Once dubbed “the perfect religion for liberal millennials,” witchcraft is not a monolith. The term covers everything from Wicca and New Age movements to closed practices – such as Hoodoo and brujería – so there is a parcel of ground to cover here. We have put together a list of books below that are mostly not specific to tradition, but there are a few titles, such as that by Lorraine Monteagut Brujas and Abiola Abrams’ Initiation to the African goddess, chosen specifically for practitioners of magic from marginalized communities.

Whether you’re coming to magic via WitchTok or the recent Witch Book Harvest, there’s something for you listed below. Here, the best spell books to buy at your local bookstore.

We only include products that have been independently selected by the Bustle editorial team. However, we may receive a portion of the sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.
