  1. I am so doing this. I'll write up a post about it later. And if I take my time about it you have my permission to nag me. :)

  2. Diandra Linnemann12/06/2011

    This soudns like fun, but I am too busy and too much inbetween everything to join any challenges right now... but if I ever get my me-reading time back, I'll make sure to share some witchy book goodness nevertheless. ^^

  3. Slommler12/06/2011

    I can sure get into fantasy books...this time of year is usually not a good reading time for me.  So we shall see!  Great idea though!!
    Hugging you my love
    Still frozen in the West

  4. Sweet Zombie Goddess12/06/2011

    I'm sure you can already see which I will be joining lol!


  5. I had previously joined the Pagan Reader Challenge but now I have joined two from your list as well LOL  I LOVE to read!

  6. petoskystone12/06/2011

    Congratulations, Salem Witch Child! I have to write up my list first, before i know which level to be on :)

  7. salemwitchchild12/06/2011

    Yay. I'll email you right now. :)

    Honestly, 35+ books is EASY for me. lol

  8. salemwitchchild12/06/2011

    Thanks. :)

  9. salemwitchchild12/06/2011

    Button added and post made.


  10. Kallista Silverheart12/06/2011

    Would love to join in on this but I'm not sure I'd qualify. The books I read are usually focused on Heka and ancient Egyptian spirituality so I'm not sure if they'd be considered witchy? Let know on this if you can, I'd love to participate!

  11. You are an avid reader! I am new to the whole Pagan blog things, and found you via the Pagan Pages blog hop, and I am so glad I did. I am going to join up as well! Sound slike fun. BB, Meadow

  12. Here's the link to my post. Can't wait to get reading! http://paganhomeschool.com/witchy-reading-challenge/

  13. Wow, this is a lot of reading! I have to admit, I don't know if I will have the time to do all these books ;o( I might do one? And, tell you what I think ;o) Sorry to be a party popper!!! Hugs my friend ;o)

  14. Robin Larkspur12/06/2011

    Magaly, I am jumping on your Witchy Reading challenge wagon. I will get a post up in the next day or two. Thanks for creating this!!

  15. I'll probably end up reading witchy books; actually, no probably about it.  But I don't know that I want to offficially be on the challenge or I'll feel I "have to" read them and get stressed over it.  I can promise you reviews of any books I read though; I usually review books on my blog when I read them.

  16. So in on this! Great idea! Thanks for creating such a wonderful challenge!


  17. Caitlin12/06/2011

    Count me in! I'm gonna go for the bookish darling level.Do wizards count?

  18. This sounds like so much fun, what a good idea! BTW I loved your rating levels.
    I'm gonna go all the way and go for Witchy Bibliophile.

  19. lilacwolf12/07/2011

    I am thinking here.  I mean, I review books and I don't necessarily read a lot of witchy books.  Although that may change soon so who knows...lol

  20. My husband is a meanie and he has put a temporary freeze on my book purchasing. Whoa is me.

  21. Oh, I'll remind you, don't you worry about that ;-)

  22. Well, the challenge last old year, maybe we'll see you later.

  23. WoooHooo! Nice. I'll read you around, then!

  24. That make sense. I have no organization power when it comes to reading.

  25. Thanks for joining, darling. Can't wait to see what titles you'll share.

  26. Hey, if there is magic in them, I don't care what they focus on; I consider them witchy! 

  27. I read a lot. Something about discovering different worlds in books just keeps me going. I'm glad you'll join! 

  28. Well, I would LOVE to have you in the Witchy one.

  29. You know, "challenge" is such a concrete word, huh? Just go ahead and follow Diandra's example, just add whatever title you read, and claim whatever lever (or none) at the end of the year. It is all about having a blast!

  30. Yay! This will be fun. I'm so excited to see all the great books everybody will share.

  31. Of course wizards count! At Pagan Culture, we embrace diversity. Share the link to your post, and I'll add you to my sidebar.

  32. I'm sooo going to be a Witchy Bibliophile, myself. It was fun to pick the levels. I figured they needed to mean something.

  33. I'm sure you'll read way more than four witchy books in 2012. I don't know about you, but I've been devouring every book Debora Geary births into my world, and you can't get any more witchier than that. 

  34. Someone needs to be a meanie to me when it comes to that. I'm just bad, bad, bad about it sometimes lol

  35. Esther Bernstein12/07/2011

    I'm so joining this! And thanks for linking to the dystopia one as well - I read lots of dystopia, so that's right up my alley.

    Here's my challenges post:

  36. Esther Bernstein12/07/2011

    That sounds familiar...

  37. It's a reading pandemic that has been going around for ages ;-)

  38. I'm so happy you decided to join, Esther. I figured you'd like the dystopia. It would be nice to explore things like The Hunger Games and some other worlds. 

  39. Rachel Wohld12/08/2011

    I joined up as well.  i have a post on my main page at www.witchrants.blogspot.com that links to my challenge page.  I will list the books as I read them.

  40. lilacwolf12/09/2011

    All right, I'm in!

  41. Kallista Silverheart12/09/2011

    hehe, okies! Will put up the post and button as soon as I get back home on Monday. SO excited :D

  42. The Book Vixen12/09/2011

    Thanks for participating in the Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge! Good luck and I hope you reach your goal :)

  43. I hope you can walk and eat as you read!

     BTW your photo looks lovely and you have NOTHING to worry about.
      You will be reading night and day for all these challenges!

  44. What a fabulous challenge, Magaly! I love this idea and will simply have to join...very soon!

    Congrats to the lucky Salem Witch Child.

  45. Blogged about it at my book blog: http://saritaslibrary.blogspot.com/2011/12/witchy-books-reading-challenge-2012.html

  46. Welcome, Rachel. This should be fun ;-)

  47. I'm sure it will be a reading blast to accomplish. 

  48. I can read and eat, walk and read, clean and read, commute and read... yep, I'm all dualism when it comes to stories ;-)

  49. Yay! Can't wait to see what you'll read!

  50. Added you last night. Get your read on, luv!

  51. I am going to do this! Thanks for the inspiration. I am looking forward to trolling everyone else's lists to find new books too. :)  My post is here: http://www.bighillgoddess.com/2011/12/new-challenge.html

  52. Yay for inspiration! I just added to the list, and to be honest, I'm super excited to read the new titles everybody will bring.

  53. Sounds like fun!

  54. Welcome, Blossom! I just added you to my sidebar, and now I'm going to spy on you ;-)

  55. Came across this blog seeking more not so lonely witches. Have never really been tempted to continue reading a blog before, am not very familiar with it, but am drawn to this site. I want to know more. I would love to join the reading challenge, but am technology challenged. I'll have to learn more this weekend about this great new thing I've discovered.

  56. I am sooo glad to see you here, Weemic. The blog world is a huge witchy circle, and I like it. Email me, we can work on those blogging skills together (I'm sure MANY would love to help) ;-)

  57. Here's the link to Reading Challeges page! 

  58. Thanks so much for signing up for my Zombie Challenge! Hope you have fun with it and good luck with all your other challenges too :)

  59. I'm lucking forward to the reading treat; I'm thinking that it'll be a blast!

  60. lilacwolf12/19/2011


    I created a special page.  :)

  61. It is sooo good to have you, I'll add you right away!

  62. Thedomesticpagan12/21/2011

    I had no idea you were doing a challenge too. Clearly I have not been a good networker lately! Thanks so much for including my challenge on your list. I will repay the favor and add your challenge to my blog as well.

  63. I didn't know you had one either, so don't feel too bad. Susan, from Pieces of Fate had to tell me lol

  64. I just stumbled upon this challenge while trying to find some motivation to get through my large stack of  Wicca related books. Sounds awesome! But, I don't have a blog. I do use goodreads.com (just started) and can be found when you search under people. I'll be listed under patchouli_grl and will list my books there. Thanks for starting this challenge!

  65. AutumnWind12/26/2011

    I am soooo in! I love to read and my wonderful man got me a dozen witchy related books for Yule. Here is my post :) http://beneaththewitchesmoon.blogspot.com/2011/12/witchy-books-reading-challenge-2012.html 

  66. DC Schmidt12/27/2011

    I'm joining in this challenge, just now sure where to sign up. is there a Mr. Linky?  where do we link up our blog reviews?

  67. Add me to the fray!

  68. Patchouli_Girl, Goodreads is quite acceptable. I'll add you immediately. Happy witchy reading!

  69. I've added you to my sidebar, Rachel!

  70. Welcome, luv! Have I told you that I always smile when I type the name of your blog? I like it that much ;-)

  71. Hi DC Schmidt, all you need to do is leave a comment to the post where you make your announcement/where you'll keep your reading list. I'll add it to my sidebar manually.

  72. I just added your link, Kim. And oh my, I checked your list, yum!

  73. I don't know about you guys, but I am excited about this! I just ordered my first new book off of Amazon today! It's gonna be great, and I am dusting off all my "meant to" have read books. Can't wait! BB, Meadow

  74. I am super excited, too, Meadow. I keep on staring at my (growing list) adding and rearranging things. I think it will be a blast!

  75. Just done my reading challenge page. No book list yet. Shall do it as I go :)

  76. Faerieswheel12/29/2011

    I am going to try to join in on this, though I am due to pop any time within the beginning of the year with my first child so I don't know just how busy I will be, but I am sure I will have time for at LEAST a couple books. I'm not really sure how to put up buttons on the side of the page, still pretty new with this site, but I can post it in my blog c:

    here is my blog: http://faerieswheel.blogspot.com/

  77. Oh a new life, what a blessing! I have a friend who used to read (or listen to) audio books with her baby. Now they are both addicted to Terry Pratchett lol

    I'm off to add you!

  78. The Domestic Pagan12/30/2011

    Melissa at Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf is also doing a reading challenge that includes fiction and nonfiction. Here's the link in case you want to add it to the list of other challenges. http://melissaseclecticbookshelf.blogspot.com/2011/12/2012-witches-witchcraft-reading.html

  79. Yay! The more the merrier. I feel seriously happy to see so many witchy reading challenges. Don't laugh, but I get all teary-eyed when I think that the idea of something like this 20 years ago would have been just wishful thinking.

    I joined! Thanks a million, Serenity! 

  80. This is awesome!!  I went from finding no Witchy challenges...to creating my own...to finding two more!!!!  I'm definitely joining!!!!  here is the link to my Reading Challenges Page!!  


    ♥ Melissa @ Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf 

  81. I think it's lovely. I feel the same way, and I get all emotional when I think about it. We've come such a long way, and the future can only hold better prospects. I refuse to believe otherwise. 

    I'm off to add your blog ;-)

  82. Kristy Wren1/02/2012

  90. You make me feel better about myself. I keep on telling myself, "Okay this is it," and then I get into something else *sigh*

    Welcome to the witchy reading party!

  91. kadiera1/02/2012

    I'm going to attempt to read this year, hopefully things will be less chaotic:

  100. Calenth1/04/2012

    Okay I was brave and added this challenge to my list - I hope to get to at least Lunar Booklover - with doing my Masters at the same time personal choice reading is sometimes a luxury.


  101. Lovely! We are on the same boat. I'm working towards an MFA. But hey, I'm a writer, and you can't write if you don't read, right?

  102. Hey I did my post and added the button!


  103. amy Law1/05/2012

    Here's my link, very excited

  104. Now we can be excited together ;-)

  105. thefaeryromanticlibrarian.blogspot.com will be participating. :)

  107. 8inannaberny1/06/2012

    I'm in!!! and now i'm in three different challenges,  i also have a challenge i'm running on spanish books at fb, here the link if you wanna try some spanish ones!!!   

  108. I just joined your Spanish Books Challenge. I was planning to run a Spanish Literature Challenge next year, but why not start early, right? 

    Please leave me the direct link to where you'll keep your books and I'll add you to my sidebar!

  109. Susana1/07/2012

    I'm into it 

  110. 8inannaberny1/07/2012

    Here you have my   blog for this challenge and the book i have selected!!  I will be writting in English so is a double challenge (long time since i really do that!) 

  111. How funny! I'm on the same boat with your challenge. I haven't written in Spanish in a long time, but I'll do it for the challenge. It's kind of exciting, terrifying and humbling--I already typed "obscuridad" when trying to type oscuridad *sigh*

  112. I want to do all of these challenges too!  I am a book fiend!  I don't know how to add the challenge button though.  Can you help me?

  113. I could definitely help, send me an email, and I'll send you the information.

    sign me up please ma'am! 


  115. I shall, indeed. Leave me the link to your direct post, and I'll add you right away.

  116. LOVE the graphic for this challenge...AND the challenge! I will definitely be joining and sharing your post with everyone. Now, if only I still had my glasses...makes reading SO much easier. ;)

  117. It would be wonderful to have you, my dear. Please add the link to your page for the challenge as soon as you write it, and I'll add you right away. It's great to read you again!

  118. Just updating to include my post regarding this challenge along with my
    initial "List". I've just ordered The New England Witch Chronicles and
    can't wait for it to arrive! Here is my intro post:

    Thank you Magaly!

  119. I've added you and I'm super excited about your reading list!

    I'm in

    Decided to do this. 


  123. The Distant Hours
    by Kate Morton

    This Aussie has some serious talent for plots twists.

    Having read The Forgotten Garden by the same author, I was prepared for jumping back and forth through time in this NYT bestseller. Stifled, dysfunctional families, secrets, intrigues,castles, mental collapse, lost loves, and murder span the generations of two oddly connected families impacted by The London Blitz. Slow at first, but persevere--I sat up to finish the novel. I was right about the ending, wrong about the motive, and didn't expect...well, I'm not going to spoil it for you, now, am I?

  124. Thou shall not write spoilers! 

    It sounds like a nice mixture for conflict, yum!

  125. Joining the fun! http://themidwesternpagan.wordpress.com/2012/02/29/2012-paganwiccan-reading-challenge/

  127. Yay! I've just added you. 

    Also, if you send me an email with the links to your specific witchy reads, I will put them at the top of the lists (Like Kim's and Lilac's).

    I realize I may be a little late in joining, but I'm definitely up for some good witchy reading. Here is the URL for my post:


    So far, I've read three books and I'm looking forward to many more. Thanks! :)

  129. Welcome, I'm looking forward to your reads, too ;-)

  130. For some reason my (your) image isn't showing up properly on my sidebar just recently. Is it on my end? I'll try looking over the code to see if I messed it up somehow. ;)

  131. Hm... have you tried reloading it? It seems to be working on this end, but Blogger has been PMS-ing lately.

  132. Oh it's late but I want to try it! I love read and I love book! 
    I'll hope you can add me! 
    Button added and post made.: http://arsstrigae.wordpress.com/2012/03/05/witchy-books-readings-challenge-2012/I'm sorry for my bad english, I'm italian!  ^_^ 

  133. I just added you. And your English is just fine (and your name is so pretty, by the way). I will visit your blog and try to learn some Italian ;-)

  134. I just checked your list and saw you'll read American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I LOVE that book! Have read it twice and will do it again. I hope you love it, too!

  135. BekahRebel/Aussie Pagan Mummy3/08/2012

    Starting late, but hoping I can increase my reading amount this year.

  136. I've added you. You are always in time when there is fun to have.

  137. http://crimsonrose1014-witchywoman.blogspot.com/p/witchy-reading-challenge.html all of my book intros and reviews so far, I've been a little lax and I really need to get back into the swing of things!

  138. I think I need a break ;-)

  139. http://cajunlady77.blogspot.com/2012/04/witchy-book-reading-challenge.html

    A few months late in the game, but I'm in the challenge now!!!

    1. You are never late when you are bringing a list as yummy as yours. Wow, I just browsed and triple yum!

      I can't wait to read your review of Kabbalah, Magic and the Great Work of Self-Transformation. I've heard great things, but haven't picked it up yet. Welcome!

  140. I finished the challenge!!!!!!!! :D http://saritaslibrary.blogspot.com/2012/05/witchy-reading-challenge-completed.html I actually finished it a couple days ago but only now got around to updating my "challenges" page on my book blog. And of course more wiitchy books will be added to this list throughout the year.

    1. Hooray! Congrats, Sarita! I need to update my pages. I bet I finish a couple of challenges, too. I have been reading like a mad woman, this year. I'm going to your page to see what you've read lately ;-)

  141. Love this idea! Two semesters ago I read "In the Devil's Snare" by Mary Beth Norton, I had a paper due at the same time. So being the resourceful girl that I am, I wrote a paper on diseased rye possibly being the reason for the witch frenzy that led to the witch trials. The new semester starts Monday, let's see what I can incorporate this time around. :)

    1. Ha! I do the same thing. Whenever possible, I try to incorporate my readings and personal interests in schoolwork. That makes everything more interesting, doesn't it?

  142. Hi Magaly! Just posted about this on my blog. LOVE it! Thanks for hosting. I'm just bummed it took me so long to stumble on board.

    1. I've added you to the list. Thanks for playing along ;-)
