If you have read The Hollows series (to book 9: Pale Demon) this is a fantastic accompaniment. I loved the way Harrison took the idea of a world book featuring content from & supporting the series, then turned that into its own story. ✨This follows reporter Devin Crossman as he investigates Rachel & her escapades in the previous books, with all the information and facts he‘s compiled. I was just as engrossed as I am with a regular Hollows novel!

MeganAnn Many extra thanks to @DebinHawaii for giving me this in the #basicwitchswap 💖 I loved it! 💖This is also another book checked off my #seriesread2022 goal to complete the entire #hollows series @TheSpineView 3mo
TheSpineView Fantastic! 3mo
DebinHawaii Yay! Glad you enjoyed it! I need to start up reading the series again. I read the first 4 & I am annoyed at my library because #5 is only available in audio book & print but the not e-book like 1-4 were. 😡 Have you ever tried listening to any of the books? 3mo

MeganAnn @DebinHawaii how frustrating! I have not listened to them, but I‘m also not a big audiobook person. Does your library offer access to hoopla? It looks like most of the series is on hoopla as both audio and ebooks. I had to search by title specifically to find book 5 as it didn‘t come up by searching the author‘s name. 3mo
DebinHawaii @MeganAnn Sadly, we are Libby only & they do this with series all the times, especially large, older series. Irritating. I like the e-books more than print with these because I read them in small bits & don‘t have to drag the book around. I did find the e-book on Amazon for $5.99 though, so I may go that route! Close to the price of a latte so I can justify! 😉🤣 3mo
MeganAnn Oh shoot! Our library does the same thing with the older series too and it can be frustrating. With the Charley Davidson series, I can only get them through an inter library loan and I think when I looked they were missing a couple in the middle of the series too. Hoping to track down used copies instead as I prefer reading physical copies whenever possible. Glad you found an alternative plan! 😊 3mo

I'm off swaps for a bit, but I couldn't resist this #ValentineCardSwap #VCS Hosted by @LibrarianRyan

paperwitchs Noob question - what are swaps and swap tags? 4mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @paperwitchs Ok. So. Littens (users) host various book swaps throughout the year. There's a theme, and a book/gift minimum. The host will post a link, and a hashtag that goes with the swap. You click the link & fill out a questionnaire, then the host matches you. You shop then mail off your gifts so that they arrive by the set opening date. ⬇️ 4mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @paperwitchs here are a couple of previous swaps you can click the hashtag and see what they're about. #littlechristmasswap #basicwitchswap 4mo

LibrarianRyan @paperwitchs Hi. Welcome. and thanks for the tag. I also Suggest checking out the #SwapPrimer before you sign up for a swap. It's all the info on the basics of swaping. Yes it was written by me, but it was based on input from all the big hosts, and the rules/guidelines still stand.

Welcome to Litsy and Enjoy!

My new bookshelf!!

Yes those bookends are a skull cut in half 💀 I'm OBSESSED. Just may need to paint the base black or gray to match.

Also thank you to @Avanders for the gold butterfly photo prints from the #BasicWitchSwap book exchange. 🦋

Adventures-of-a-French-Reader Nice bookends ;) Personally, I would leave the base as is, the wood is so nice... 4mo
LoverOfLearning @Adventures-of-a-French-Reader perfect! Saves me an hour of my day! Thanks! 4mo

Well, this was just a perfect spooky, macabre little book. Thank you so much for including it in my #BasicWitchSwap package @monalyisha ! I have already ordered the next two in the series!

LeahBergen I liked this one, too! 7mo
monalyisha Yes! 🙌🏻 Knowing what I now know about how risky it was to go off-list for you, I feel *very* accomplished. 😅 7mo
monalyisha I‘m excited for you to read Book 2! I think I may have mentioned that it (along with Book 4) is one of my favorite books in the series! They‘re such great bite-sized reads. It kind of makes me feel like a kid who waited until the last minute to do their summer reading…but I love short books! 😜 There needs to be snappy novella-lovers merch…whatever the opposite of “I like big books and I cannot lie” is. 🍑 7mo
mklong @monalyisha You should feel accomplished, you totally nailed it! I told you we are witchy kindred spirits! I love short books too. I think it comes from my love of poetry. I love when an author can do so much, with so few, well chosen, words 7mo

I have a bunch of #pie 🥧 titled books in my #TBR & read stacks including these 6 cozy mysteries & series books. I have read the tagged book from one of my favorite foodie cozy series & 2 of the Hannah Swenson books (before the series began to annoy me!). The Ellery Adams one I hope to get to soon & I just got One Poison Pie from @MeganAnn in my #BasicWitchSwap box & I am looking forward to reading it. 🥧🥧🥧

MeganAnn Yum…pie! I was just talking about making pumpkin pie for thanksgiving 7mo

Thanks for the tag @MoonWitch94

October was a very fun month for me! I love all things witchy so I had a blast co-hosting #BasicWitchSwap this year!

I‘m excited that I can start decorating and prepping for Christmas! We are having Christmasy weather in Atlanta today, so I might watch a Christmas movie 😊

I joined a very fun online knitting group, and am so inspired by the creativity and skill of the group.

#ThoughtfulThursday

SamanthaMarie I just started learning to knit last winter and I'm getting ready to pick it up again! What a fun sounding group. Do you have a current project you are working on? :) 7mo
MoonWitch94 Thanks for playing 🧡📖🍁🐿🍂 7mo
mklong @SamanthaMarie Yes! I‘m working on a new technique where you string beads on the yarn before starting and distribute them throughout. It‘s turning out really neat. What are you going to knit when you pick it back up? 7mo

SamanthaMarie Ooo that's so interesting! I'd love to see what that looks like. I just joined 🥰 thank you for the invite!! I'm Samantha Thorson on the group! I am working on a blanket for my youngest son. I knitted my oldest a scarf last year so I'm hoping to finish the blanket this year and maybe try something new as well!! 7mo
mklong @samanthamarie So glad you signed up! It‘s new so it‘s still pretty small, but my goodness there are some incredibly talented people on there! Hope to see you in a Zoom knitting circle soon ❤️ 7mo

I finished my chronological reread of this series last week with Practical Magic on Saturday. However the Rules of Magic remains my favorite of the series — I think because Franny and Jet‘s stories resonate the most with my own past experiences figuring out who I am and what I want.

We spent Halloween evening handing out candy and watching the movie Practical Magic 🖤✨🔮

Practical Magic was my October #doublespin @TheAromaofBooks

MeganAnn Many additional thanks to @DebinHawaii for the witchy tattoo on my wrist in my #basicwitchswap box. I put this on yesterday afternoon along with my witchy tshirt, hat and earrings to answer the door for trick-or-treaters. 7mo
DebinHawaii @MeganAnn That actually looks pretty cool! I wasn‘t sure how the silver would show up but I thought they‘d be fun/different. 🤗 7mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 7mo
Chrissyreadit I love how the tattoo looks 😍 7mo

Look what arrived just in time to get me through the grueling ordeal of switching over my wardrobe for the season!

4 (!!!) bags of my FAVORITE kinds of homemade cookies: Sugar Cookies (cut into witchy shapes) & GINGER MOLASSES! Pardon the caps. I‘m not excited at all.

Thank you, @mklong 🤤!
