Hi my loves since it's October, I thought I would challenge myself to read from the paranormal bookshelf that I have been severely neglecting so far this year. With so many choices I decided I didn't want to tie myself down to specific books because as we know the second I do that, I rebel and don't follow through so instead I have a few prompts that will aide me in picking a few good reads this month.
There is also a Samhain WitchAthon taking place from October 24th to the 31st. Here are the prompts:
- Samhain is a time for honoring your ancestors... so once again, pick a book that features your heritage.
- This Sabbat is a time when the veil is thinnest, pick a book that features communing with the dead... (ghosts or mediumship or necromancy)
- We are heading into the darkest part of the year... Pick a book that promises to be dark & twisted.
- Witches often make offerings to spirit guides or gods... Pick a book that involves a pantheon of deities!
- Dancing round the bonfire is a Samhain tradition... pick a book that has fire on the cover.
- Many celebrate the Sabbat as Halloween and dress up, post a picture of your costume and tag the readathon!
- Read Group book Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir ( I won't be doing this as I'm reading only books I own)
You can follow along on twitter with the hashtag #WitchAThon and the live show after the readathon is on November 1st at 6pm CST
