Witches and Witchcraft Reading Challenge

Friday, December 30, 2011

Hosted By: Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf
1 January 2012 - 31 December 2012


  1. This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2012 - Dec 31, 2012. I will be posting a place to link up a sign-up post (below), reviews and a wrap-up post. (Note: You do not have to review the books to participate, but only those who link up reviews will be entered for the prize)
  2. Any full length book that includes a witch as a main character or major witchcraft elements counts. They may be fiction or non-fiction. However, they should not be reference books which are not read cover to cover-I will leave this to your discretion.
  3. Books can be any format (bound, eBook, audio).
  4. Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.
  5. You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap-up post. If you list them, feel free to change them as the mood takes you.
  6. You can move up levels, but no moving down.
