📖 Spells8 Book Club XXVI (Mar 10 - Apr 7)

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! 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 XXV- Reader’s Reviews discussion.

As of today, the 26th book club reading session has now begun !

spells8 book club

On Your Mark, Get Set, READ! :books:

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

  2. Know that you have [[ 4 weeks ]] in this reading session
    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. As you’re reading, feel free to 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. Just save the best parts for the final discussion at the end of the reading period!

  4. Join the 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:

If you are reading a book along with someone else, please make a note in the comments so I can create a special discussion thread for you!

Blessed be and happy reading!

While @MeganB is about finished with hers… I haven’t made it past the cover of mine… :closed_book: :rofl:

I’m hoping to finish it in the next few days. I’d like to write up a review for it for my blog and possibly interview the author for my podcast/YouTube channel! He’s the one that reached out to me and asked if I’d be interested in reading it, and it’s free on Kindle Unlimited!

That sounds awesome, Megan! I hope the interim view goes really well.

It sounds like you and @Siofra_Strega may read books like I do - as fast a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter! Lol

Look at you go, Megan- woohoo!!! :partying_face: :sparkling_heart: :books:

You’re doing much better than me- I left my book in the USA :upside_down_face: I was so upset when I unpacked and it wasn’t there! Gonna have to hold off on mine for another two months or so :sweat_smile:

Hahaha you’ve been busy! No stress- there’s always more reading time in the future :wink: :+1: :books:

Omg what a visual- this made me smile! :turtle: :peanuts: :joy:

2 posts were merged into an existing topic: :memo: Spells8 Book Club XXVI - Readers’ Reviews!

@Phoenix_Rose – haha that’s quite the visual! :turtle: But you’re right. It’s been so long since I’ve been able to just sit and read. I started some new medication last month for ADHD and I’m finding it much easier to read and remember what I read. I’m excited for more books in my future! Gods know my TBR pile is pretty big :rofl:

@TheTravelWitch_Bry – Oh no! Poor book got left behind :sweat_smile: I’m sure it’ll be there waiting for you when you return!

You’d think the more I travel the better I’d be at remembering to pack things, but I swear I get worse each time lol :sweat_smile:

But you’re very right- I’ll be able to jump in where I left off in a few months! I’m sure the book will be patient :laughing: :+1: :closed_book:
