The Necronomicon is a ficticious book in the writings of Howard Phillip Lovecraft. Several authors have created versions of the Necronomicon, but they are exactly that - made up.
Avoid Silver Ravenwolf like the plague.
The others... I have never read. Just based on the titles "Bewitched" (Love spells? You are ok with the equivelent of magical rape?) and "Hocus Pocus", I would avoid those as well. "Spells for Revenge and Protection"? Well, you get what you put out. Revenge may not be ehr smartest move for you.
Before recommending any books, I'd want to know what you have studied. What fundamentals do you practice? What tradition are you looking to follow?

I was aware that the story around the Necronomican was fictional but was under the impression that the rituals themselves where real. Thank you for clearing this up though i will cancel the book order until i get further recommendations from the community here.
I do not currently follow a religion i was born a catholic but have not followed the religion. I am mostly interested in witchcraft but considering its not a recognized religion i would be interested in the closest to it. From my limited research it seems that traditional wicca comes into play with witchcraft but i could be wrong.
Just to point out i am *not* going to or even attempt any kind of revenge spell. Being a complete newcomer im looking for a book to start off and a couple of other books on both the dark and the light side of magic spells and rituals. I would like to have the knowledge of doing both the good and the bad, knowledge is power! lol. If you could recommend a few i would really appreciate it.
The summoning of spirits also interests me although i wouldn't attempt anything related to it until i was experienced, would like a book related to this though for reading knowledge and information for when i am more experienced.
The spells on here don't seem very legitimate so i thought i would pick up some books!

Witchcraft is not a religion. It is a practice, and not necessarily connected to any spiritual or philosophical belief.
Wicca, for example, is a religion which incorporates some aspects of magic.
But practicing magic does not have to be connected to any religion.
