Get ready for Witch Week…

WITCH WEEK 2016-200

How do you get ready for Witch Week? Most importantly, mark your calendars, so you’ll remember to come back here from October 31 to November 6 for a full week of celebrating our favorite fantasy books and authors. These will include books like American Gods and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz; authors including Shirley Jackson and Kat Howard; and more!

If you’d like to prepare your own posts, there will be a linkup during the week so you can share your favorites from the past, or review some new releases. A couple of books coming out this month that would be perfect for the theme are The Evil Wizard Smallbone by Delia Sherman and Summerlong by Peter S. Beagle, both of which I’m hoping to review soon.

The week will end with a discussion post focusing on Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury, so if you’d like to read along, grab a copy and get started.

As always spreading the news is much appreciated, so share the button, let your readers know your plans, and encourage anyone who might be interested to join us.

  1. I’d love to participate! I just bought a copy of Something Wicked This Way Comes. I’ll try to remember the actual event and post about it. 🙂

  2. Thanks for hosting The Read Along of Something Wicked This Way Comes. I will post some additional commentary on the book and link up during the week. I may also try to squeeze in another book.

    I am really looking forward to reading what I expect to be very interesting posts on some very interesting books that week.

  3. I’ll be starting to read Something Wicked This Way Comes as soon as I finish my current reads. I’m looking forward to seeing the other posts that week too!

  4. Until you mentioned it, I forgot that Delia read us the beginning of The Evil Wizard Smallbone at ICFA in Florida last spring, and I want to read the rest. So I’ll be posting something about it during Witch Week! Thanks!

  5. I am getting ready for it by writing that thing for you! I have six out of ten items already, and I am so confident I can get to ten. There absolutely are ten reasons to get pumped about Shirley Jackson. Infinity reasons, actually!

  6. I am in the middle of writing my American Gods post and am THIS CLOSE to rereading it even though I just read it again this spring because it’s back in my brain now. 😉

  7. I am so happy I finally found a copy of the Haunting of Hill House. I am also rewatching the movie, the original. It’s one of my favorites and I can’t wait to see what the book is like. I also came across a newish release called The Girl who Drank the Moon, the title I couldn’t pass up 🙂 And will be so interested in Jenny @ Reading the End’s post!
