    A poignant and powerful collection of essays by women and femmes on how they find resistance and power in rituals ranging from the magical to the mundane. A wide variety of voices gives different perspectives on how to become dangerous in a world trying to blunt feminine power. ...

    Overall, a great anthology. I related to a lot of it, and learned a lot from it too. My favourite pieces were by Cara Ellison, Maranda Elizabeth, Laura Mandanas, Catherine Hernandez, Mey Rude, J. A. Micheline and Nora Khan, and there was only one entry that I disliked (not cos it was b...

    Are you into witchy things, even a little, even if your definition differs from others? Are you into intersectional feminism? What about resisting? Read. This. Book. There's a truly impressive variety of voices amplified in this book, aka it's not just white women appropriating ...

    This is an amazing collection of essays from such a large variety of voices. Some of these essays I connected with on a very deep personal level because I knew exactly what they were talking about. Some of these essays opened my eyes and mind to something I didn't know about before or ...

    This was an incredibly powerful collection of stories about the use of ritual. The stories were really intense so I could only read 1 or 2 at a time. Each one gave me another way if thinking about ritual and so much inspiration. This book is an incredible gift. ...

    This book made me feel seen, made me feel understood, like little private things I do for myself or assign power to myself aren't just my own (but in the best, best possible way). I wanted to know so much more about each of the writers, each of these people who are making magic in thei...

    this collection comes at a moment of peak trendiness for witchiness & femmeness, at least in my own lived experience so far. i was really excited about it, and also, the further i got through the collection, the more my excitement splatted onto the ground. don't get me wrong; i...

    This isn't just a great book. It's an important one. Becoming Dangerous, at its core, celebrates the idea of care ? both in a communal sense, but also the idea of self-care, helping to shed the notion that taking the time to love yourself is inherently bad somehow. Rituals are exp...

    I have mixed feelings about this book. First, my husband was part of the Kickstarter and he's a big fan of West's work, and he gifted me with his copy received from his donation, which is pretty cool. I like the idea of the book, the approach and the energy it seems to want to convey. ...

    This is what an anthology should be, fiction or non fiction. Each essay was distinct, and overall conveyed a wide range of experiences and opinions. I didn't agree with everything, but pretty much all of them at least gave me a new perspective to consider. I backed this on Kickstarter ...

    Okay, so, first of all: I didn't read every single essay in this book. Which is a good thing. The amazing editors thought to make a content warning page, which is a truly fantastic idea. These essays are very candid in their discussions of topics like trauma, institutional oppression, ...

    I really, REALLY wanted to love this book. If I could I would?ve given it 2.5 stars. I understand what they were trying to do with this book, but I don?t think they achieved it. Some essays were gems! I felt lost throughout the others. HOWEVER, I appreciated each essay for ...

    This is really 3.5 stars. While the diversity in the essays was fascinating and appreciated, the essays themselves read like long blog posts full of self-affirmations. I enjoyed reading them, but once I was finished, there was little that was very memorable about any of them. Some of t...
