📖 Spells8 Book Club XXVIII (May 19 - Jun 16)

Welcome to all of the witchy book-lovers here in the forum!

:books: :woman_mage: :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 XXVII- Reader’s Reviews discussion .

As of today, the 28th 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!

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

Blessed be and happy reading!

I’m still reading the book, but making progress.

I added my entry above @tracyS by accident! Sorry! I hope you love :heart: the book, I enjoyed it when I read it & I’m enrolled in, I guess classes on the Morrigan at the Irish Pagan School with Lora O’Brien. She works heavily with the Morrigan & I believe she is a priest/priestess of Her as well. (I’m about 99% sure of it, but my brain is slow today :face_with_hand_over_mouth:)

I put two books as I am done the Psychic Witch book. I bought it as an audiobook and in my review I will post the time points of the exercises for easy referral for anyone else who gets the audiobook version.

The second book is not a witchy book but as I was listening to it I saw how it would help my practice. :slight_smile:

@TracyS Welcome, Tracy! I hope you enjoy The Morrigan- may it be a lovely read for you! :books::blush:

@Susurrus No worries, Siofra- I hope you continue to enjoy Brigid. Happy reading! :open_book: :sparkles:

@Phoenix_Rose Congrats on finishing Psychic Witch! I think having the time points for the exercises would be very helpful- it would certainly make it easy for anyone who wishes to jump back in to do them. I hope you enjoy The Gifts of Imperfection- have fun! :closed_book: :heart:
