Although not really light reading, any adult with a real interest in Greek religion or the role of women in ancient Greece should read and be able to understand Portrait of a Priestess: Women And Ritual in Ancient Greece. Joan Breton Connelly does a great job separating out the various types of priestesses and breathes life into the women charged with serving as intermediaries between mortals and the gods.

In Ancient Greek Love Magic, Christopher A. Faraone peppers his discussion of love and the magic used by mortals to bind the objects of their affection, with myth, including the tale of the seeds with which Hades tempted Persephone.
Much Greek literature paints women as rapacious, sexual creatures. If this were the common male viewpoint, Faraone says, you wouldn't expect to find so many spells to make women interested. This perspective makes Ancient Greek Love Magic another important work for those trying to understand the position of ancient Greek women. Although a friend describes it as reading like an expanded doctoral thesis, I find Faraone fascinating.

Household and Family Religion in Antiquity, edited by John Bodel and Saul M. Olyan, may be another book requiring concentration to comprehend, but it is packed with information by many leaders in their fields. In the household, practical magic and religion often combined to deal with the usual familial concerns, like ancestors, fertility, sickness, and childbirth. Household and Family Religion in Antiquity is the result of a 2005 conference on the topic of domestic religion at Brown University. It covers Western Asia in the first and second millennia B.C., ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome.

Magic in the Ancient Greek World, by Derek Collins, continues in the vein of Faraone. It covers curse tablets/binding magic, anti-magical legislation in the Greco-Roman world, and the anthropology of magic. It has a lot of information and you may love it, but it is too specialized for me.
