📖 Spells8 Book Club XV (Feb 18 - Mar 18)

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 XIV)

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 XIV- Reader’s Reviews .

As of today, the fifteenth 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?

Free online books can be found in:


If you have any questions about Book Club, be sure to check the Book Club FAQ and/or ask in the comments.

Blessed be and happy reading!

How is Psychic Witch so far? I’m thinking about buying this on Apple Books so I’m so curious how it is from someone who has it. Thanks!:blush:

I’m loving it. I’ve made it through chapter three which is about tuning in to your power. It has great information but also exercises to guide you through the principles he’s talking about. I’d say it’s definitely worth the buy.

@Janae_Rochele @Amaris_Bane Totally agree it is a great read with tons of solid information. Another good one is Witchcraft Therapy by Mandi Em. I read it a while back, should be in one of the earlier Reader Reviews for the Book Club. I absolutely devoured that book.
