Witch Week 2015: New Tales from Old

October 31, 2015 – November 6, 2015

In just over a month it will be Witch Week, a celebration of our favorite fantasy books and authors. I started this event last  year in appreciation of Diana Wynne Jones, originator of the term “witch week,” and it was so much fun I wanted to do it again! This year there will be guest posts, a giveaway, an author interview, and much more. I hope you will be inspired by the theme of New Tales from Old to read, blog about, and discuss books based on fairy tales, folklore, and myth.
The week will conclude with a readalong book that I’d like you to help me choose. Here are five choices, all of which I’d love to read along with you. Please indicate your preference in the form below, and if you wish leave a comment telling us what you’re excited to read and why. The winner will be announced in one week, on September 30. At that point there will also be a preview of the week and a sign-up linky.
Then, mark your calendars! Feel free to post the button and spread the word (use hashtag #WitchWeekECBR on Twitter), so as many readers as possible can join us for all the fun.
This reading challenge event is hosted by The Emerald City Book Review. For more information and to sign-up, please see this post.
