2016 Witches & Witchcraft Reading Challenge

Welcome to the 5th Annual Witches & Witchcraft Reading Challenge!

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 Witches & Witchcraft Reading Challenges! I hope you all had as much fun as I did!


  • Low commitment…you can sign up to read just ONE book as an INITIATE!!!
  • Participants who choose to link up reviews will be entered for the end of year prize!!

Challenge Rules:

  • This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2016 – Dec 31, 2016. 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)
  • Grab the reading challenge button (code & button below) and post this reading challenge on your blog to track your progress. Please include a link back to this sign-up post so others can join the reading challenge too. You do not have to be a book blogger to participate- you could track your progress and post reviews on Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, etc.
  • Any full length book that includes a witch as a main character or includes 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.
  • Books can be any format (bound, eBook, audio).
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.
  • 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.
  • When you sign up in the linky put the direct link to your post about joining the 2016 Witches & Witchcraft Reading Challenge, not just a link to your blog.
  • You can move up levels, but no moving down.
  • Sign-ups will be open until Dec 15, 2016, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.
  • Have some Witchy Good Fun !!!

The Levels:

Initiate: Read 1 – 5 Witchy Books
Maiden: Read 6 – 10 Witchy Books
Mother: Read 11 – 15 Witchy Books
Crone: Read 16 – 20 Witchy Books

The Prize:

Witchy book of choice up to $10 from The Book Depository!

Participants who have officially signed up by linking up a sign-up post declaring their level will be given one entry for every review they link up. The more reviews you write and link up, the more entries in the contest! Link up your reviews on that month’s Review Link Up Post. Winner will be chosen on Jan 9th 2017 to give everyone a chance to link up their end of year reviews. All Review Link Up Posts can be accessed from my menu bar under my header!

  1. I will of course take part again but I just haven’t made my sign up post yet. There is no way I want to miss this challenge as I have taken part in all of them.
    Thank you so much for hosting again.

    I am new, and interested in participating since I have downloaded many books that fit the theme. I will post my reads on Goodreads.com, but what else do I need to do. I don’t have a professional blog. Thank you.

      You can link up with your goodreads profile! That is all that you need to do:) This is a fun no stress challenge. If you want to enter the giveaway then you can also link up your reviews from goodreads.

  3. As I have decided to discontinue my blog I have made a new sign up entry. I have linked to my challenges on Goodreads instead. Jane’s Book Blog (number 20 on the list) will no longer be updated.

  4. I’m not sure how this works, but I was hoping to read reviews and get recommendations on books about witches and witchcraft with historical fiction. It’s hard to find ones that aren’t just romance or YA, or way too ridiculous. How can I see what people are recommending?
