Recently, I found myself with a couple of books that aren't necessarily ones I'd choose for myself. "Utterly Wicked" by Dorothy Morrison, and "Hex Twisting" by Diana Rajchel. It's not that I don't do this kind of magic, but rather, that I've got some feels about it. So, while I'm digging in, I thought I'd give y'all a peep at them as well. Admittedly, I'm learning a lot while I read these, even if some of the authors practices don't mesh with my own. There's something good to be found in each of these, and they are certainly worth adding to your library. They're in no particular order, and I’ve provided the descriptions available from the publisher.

About the Book
Hexes, curses, and other unsavory notions—most magical practitioners won’t even discuss them. Why? Because they’d much rather find a positive solution that benefits all concerned. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Occasionally, though, our problems are such that nothing in the positive solution arena will handle them. It’s time to make a decision to stand tough, be strong, and take definitive action to defend ourselves. And if you‘re ready to do that—if you‘re ready to own that action and take responsibility for it—then Utterly Wicked is for you.
Jam-packed with more than one hundred rituals, incantations, hexes, and curses, this is the quintessential primer for learning all the magical tricks no one wants to talk about. Do you know the proper way to enter a cemetery? Utterly Wicked tells you how, as well as the proper methods for collecting and using graveyard dirt. Explore the little-known secrets of the 11-inch fashion doll, and see why it‘s become such a valuable magical tool. Learn how to prepare Hot Foot Powder, Four Thieves Vinegar, Goofer Dust, and other magical components designed to obliterate your toughest problems. Most important, you‘ll find the tools to protect yourself, your family, and your home from ever being bothered with these sorts of difficulties again.
