📖 Spells8 Book Club XVI (Mar 25 - Apr 22)

I’ve wanted to start Reading more about Witches and The Goddesses, so I finally got a new book in and decided to join the Book Club. This way I know I will read the book properly. I am just starting my Book about Brigid today.

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. :grinning: :sparkles:

@Debra2 Welcome to Book Club, Debra! :grinning::heart: It sounds like you’ve got a great book about Brigid- I hope you enjoy Brigid: History, Mystery, and Magick! :blush:

@BrightBear Welcome, BrightBear! :raised_hands: :heart: 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? :blush: 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! :laughing: :+1:

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! :blush: 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! :heart::books:

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 :+1: 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! :blush:


Friendly reminder time!
