Kitchen Table Tarot


Title: Kitchen Table Tarot by Melissa Cynova

Category: Nonfiction, New Age, Divination, Tarot

Review: From the moment I opened this book I was entranced by the author. Melissa Cynova, aka Lis, really takes you into the world of tarot and is an honest and down-to-earth writer. She tells you stories about how she became a reader and how she has made mistakes. The one thing that I warn you about is that she is rough. There are a lot of curse words. So if you can’t handle that, then don’t buy this book. I really didn’t care about it. I found as if I was talking to a friend who was giving me straight up advice. She talks about the cards a little differently than other books. Normally, regular tarot books will give you keywords about a certain card like: wealth, financial stability, etc. She takes you through the cards individually and looks through each of their eyes, then gives you what they represent. I enjoyed this book immensely. It has made me pick up my tarot cards again and start practicing. Definitely take a look at this book if you are wanting to get into tarot reading, for yourself or others. I felt it was a worthwhile buy.

Tarot 101

Title: Tarot 101 by Kim Huggens

Category: Nonfiction, New Age

Review: This book is a definite resource for any person, whether a Wiccan, Pagan, or someone who just wants to learn about a form of divination. After all these years of exploring the spiritual path of Wicca, I had purchased a few tarot decks (and books), but never really had got into learning about it. This book will help you develop your intuition. How? Well it is not one of those basic, give symbolism or meanings to you without really explaining how to learn. This book not only gives you meanings of the cards, but different exercises. It also teaches you how to make your own spreads, teaches you how to become a professional reader, and several other things that you would and need to know about the tarot. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn about the tarot, whether for fun or not.
