I just added my name to the list. This is the first time I’ve done book club, so I hope I did it right. I’ll be reading Rebel Witch.
Yup, looks good! Are you by chance reading that for something else, too?
Hahaha, yes!! I’m behind, but on it!!
@Debra2 Welcome to Book Club, Debra! It sounds like you’ve got a great book about Brigid- I hope you enjoy Brigid: History, Mystery, and Magick!
@BrightBear Welcome, BrightBear! I hope you enjoy Rebel Witch! Usually this is where I’d open up a separate discussion for those who share a book, but, if I’m not mistaken, you and Megan are reading this as part of another magickal book club too, yes? I’d be happy to make a thread here for you to discuss, but I have a feeling there’s probably another place you’re already discussing the book, so I won’t make you all have to chat about it twice!
Got finished with my first book so I’m gonna try for a second!
@TheTravelWitch_Bry, yes, you’re correct!
@Amethyst Woohoo! Go, Amethyst, go- you’re on a roll! I hope your second book is a fun read for you, enjoy it!
@BrightBear Hahaha I thought so! Enjoy the reading and discussing of Rebel Witch- feel free to share your thoughts here too when you’re finished. Would love to hear what you both think of it!
So far it’s looking good! It’s all about wands, I finally broke down and bought that book. LOL!
Im about 1/4 way through kali im enjoying learning about her. I gotta say the book makes me feel like im actually at her temple.
OOh, the sign of a good book!
@Amethyst I’m glad you finally got your hands on it- may it live up to your expectations and more!
@Nikita-mikaelson Ohhhh I’m with Amethyst- when a book brings you into its world, that makes for a really great and immersive read! Enjoy learning more about Kali!

Time to settle down for the night and read for the rest of the night
Yes it was worth every word and minute spent on reading the book. I have started reading Wicca By Harmony Nice and another book which i will get back to you with the name. The second one is a daily read so a page a day and is called something along the lines of 356 and a day of witchcraft…
Congrats on your two new books! If you’d like, I’d be happy to add this one to the list above!
As for the other, it sounds like one page a day will lead to a year-long read. Perhaps it’s similar to the Wicca Book of Days with daily pagan holidays/events or the Spell-a-Day Almanac with a special spell suited to each day? Either way, a long term read probably isn’t a book club book, but I’m sure it will be a great read for you! Enjoy the book over the course of the year- I hope it has a lot of interesting seasonal spells and info for you!
Please read this book critically and take everything with a grain of salt. There are some good pieces of information in this book but a lot of the historical information is actually incorrect. I did a whole review of it on my YouTube channel if you wanted to see, but I don’t want to dissuade you from reading it if you’re enjoying it lol just keep in mind that many things are factually inaccurate.
@MeganB Thank you for the tip about Wicca, Megan I think it’s helpful going into a book to know whether or not the information within has backing or not. And that’s what book club is all about, after all- helping each other out!
Friendly reminder time!
A Reader’s Review post will appear in the forums in one week for everyone to share their thoughts and see what other coven members were reading.
