Onto the second book in the Witchland series-Windwitch! I‘m already really enjoying this sequel to Truthwitch!

I really enjoyed this book! It‘s a YA, fantasy novel where there are numerous types of witches with different powers. The story follow Safi, who is a truthwitch, and her best friend Iseult, who are being hunted by a bloodwitch. It was slow in the middle but really finished strong! I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy, witches and lots of action!

This was a very cute book that my son picked from the library! It tells how Halloween came to be and the old traditions of celts and how the Catholic Church turned it into a religious holiday but the celts traditions lived on. It told the story of how jack o‘ lanterns came to be. And all the traditions around the world!

Thankful | Eileen Spinelli

I‘d like to organize a readathon for November. Maybe a #Thankfulathon ? Anyone have ideas or suggestions?

Clwojick Thanksgiving is this weekend here in Canada. 😉 (edited) 1mo
Linsy Ooh that sounds fun! We could read things that either make us feel grateful, or are thanksgiving or fall themed. Or whatever. I‘d join in! 1mo
kymmiesreads @Clwojick well Happy early Thanksgiving! 1mo
See All 38 Comments
kymmiesreads @Linsy those are great ideas! I just have to figure out how to get others involved and get it organized. I‘ve never hosted a Readathon! 1mo
Linsy Me either! If you want help, I‘d be happy to contribute, but I‘m woefully inexperienced 1mo
kymmiesreads @Linsy that would be awesome! We can be woefully inexperienced together 😂 1mo
Linsy Deal :) thanks for letting me help! 1mo
CollyRae This sounds awesome! I'd love to help too, if you want? Maybe try to broaden your idea of theme for the books? Like The Hunger Games aren't about Thanksgiving, but there's a cornucopia lol I think if you got a post on @LitsyHappenings you would have tons of people wanting in. 1mo
kymmiesreads @linsy no problem! I‘m glad to have someone helping! 1mo
kymmiesreads @CollyRae I can use all the help I can get! And widening the theme sounds great! I didn‘t even know about @LitsyHappenings thank you so much! 1mo
Linsy @CollyRae Lol, I love the cornucopia idea! Not all of it has to be serious Thanksgivingness. And I agree! We will definitely want to get the word out as soon as we have things figured out, @kymmiesreads! (edited) 1mo
Linsy @kymmiesreads They are awesome! Once we have an initial post created, they‘re the ones that will help@spread the word. I‘m excited! 1mo
CollyRae @kymmiesreads Do you know how you want to do it? Like a bingo board, or just get people to read whatever? 1mo
kymmiesreads @CollyRae @linsy a bingo board sounds fun! I could give out prizes! I thought people could post what they are thankful for each day (if they want to-we wouldn‘t require it) we could have a book that we could all read and discuss at the end of the month. But people could read anything not just a certain theme. 1mo
Linsy I love all of that! What if The thankful thing was a photo challenge. So it was like: Day 1, share a book you‘re thankful for. Day 2, a character. Then more serious ones like a family member, a teacher, etc. what do you think? @CollyRae @kymmiesreads 1mo
Linsy @CollyRae @kymmiesreads maybe we could each be in charge of one of the activities? I can Provide a prize as well. 1mo
kymmiesreads @linsy that is an awesome idea! All three of us should exchange email addresses so we can have a private chat. What do you think? @CollyRae 1mo
CollyRae @kymmiesreads @Linsy Those are all great ideas! What kinds of prizes do you guys think? Just books or full on goody bags? I can definitely contribute! 1mo
kymmiesreads @CollyRae @Linsy I like the idea of each of us being in charge of one activity. And goody bags sound really cute! What kinds of things would we put in them? 1mo
CollyRae @kymmiesreads @Linsy I was thinking maybe bookmarks, a book, maybe a notebook and pens, if it's a book that has merch, maybe some small things? 1mo
kymmiesreads @CollyRae @Linsy those all sound great! 1mo
kymmiesreads @CollyRae @Linsy who is doing which activity? 1mo
CollyRae @kymmiesreads What are the actual activities? I know reading books, and posting what you're thankful for, right? So what is the third activity? 1mo
CollyRae Oh, was the third one Bingo? Or is that the reading books part? 1mo
kymmiesreads @linsy @CollyRae I‘m not 100% sure. Reading Bingo, thankful photo challenge and we need a third one. 1mo
CollyRae @kymmiesreads @Linsy Holiday movies? Every day I give tips for not discussing politics at the dinner table? Oh oh oh! Real suggestion: Daily Family Selfies! 1mo
kymmiesreads @CollyRae I love the family selfie idea! That could include traditional families, friends that are like family, selfies with pets. We just can‘t leave anyone out. Holiday movies are a great idea too! Should we have a point system? 1mo
CollyRae @kymmiesreads All the families! Extended families, best friends, a dm with a bestie you met on Twitter! Add long ad it's someone you love in some way or other, it's family! We could add movies to some of the Bingo spots. Okay so I think points is an awesome idea and each of us could track the points for our own activities and be responsible for that prize. Idk how we would do it if one person did all the things lol 1mo
CollyRae I guess just award the next person in the line 1mo
kymmiesreads @CollyRae we could have people do the challenges and if more then one person does all the tasks then we would have a drawling for the prize. 1mo
CollyRae @kymmiesreads @Linsy I feel like this will be easier if they either tag us individually or we each have a separate hashtag so that we can scroll just our activity to track points every night. 1mo
CollyRae Maybe just a straight up drawing where doing each thing every day gets you additional entries? But like each activity has it's own pool of entries so if you only do one challenge type, then you're only in for that prize. We can ask the hosts for the October event how they kept track of scores. 1mo
kymmiesreads @collyrae @linsy I agree we need to ask the hosts of our October event. There are a lot of details to this. 1mo
Linsy @collyrae @kymmiesreads Sorry I‘ve been awol! Life got busy. I love everything! Maybe some things should be mini games? A family selfie every day sounds like a lot, I dunno. Here‘s my email address, want to communicate that way? linsyh@icloud.com 1mo
