đź“– Spells8 Book Club XIV (Jan 14 - Feb 11)

Wishing a warm welcome to all of the forum book-lovers!

:books: :blush: :heart:

Thank you again to everyone who joined in for last month’s reading session (Reading Session XIII)

For those who haven’t yet shared their thoughts about their book (or anyone who enjoys reading book reviews!) you still have time to do so in :memo: Spells8 Book Club XIII- Reader’s Reviews .

As of today, the fourteenth book club reading session has now begun !

Spells8 Book Club

Time to read!

  1. Announce your book
    The first post below is an editable wiki post- add your book title and name to the list! (instructions below)

  2. The reading period is open for [[ 4 weeks ]]
    While it is great if you can finish your book during this time, it is okay if you break it into chapters or sections- do as much as you can and know that doing your best is always good enough!

  3. Share your thoughts
    You are very welcome to share any thoughts or tidbits while you read in the comments below or in a new post in the forums. But save the best parts for the final discussion at the end of the reading period!

  4. Final Discussion
    After four weeks, a discussion post will open encouraging all readers to share a review of their book and any personal thoughts they have about it. A mini-review is perfectly fine, and there will be a suggested format for anyone who would like to write a longer review.

A note about sharing books:

While everyone is free to choose their own book, you may consider reading along with someone else ! It is fun to share thoughts and insights about different books and even more exciting to do in-depth about a book with fellow readers :handshake:

If the book you plan to read is already on the list below, add your name to the list of others reading that book! For books with multiple readers, a separate discussion just for you will open for you to swap thoughts and share insights.

Please keep in mind that everyone will reconvene for the final discussion, regardless of which book you read :books:


Not sure what to read?

You can find book recommendations in:

Reading on a budget?

I got this book at fivebelow, read through the intro (and absolutely loved it!) but didn’t get much further than that- life has been busy :sweat_smile:

I’m hoping to make my way through the whole book over the next few weeks for this session of Book Club. I’ve loved what I’ve seen so far, and Gong has some very creative ways to put the tarot to use! I hope it continues to be a good read :blush::books:
