Witch Week Day 7: Ending / Beginning

That wraps up Witch Week 2018, and Lizzie and Chris have so enjoyed hosting this. We couldn’t have done it without the help of everyone who participated:

• Marlyn, of Stuff ‘n’ Nonsense, for her list of Ten Kick-Ass Heroines
Tanya, of Tanya Manning-Yarde, PhD, for her beautiful review of Ursula K Le Guin’s poetry collection, Finding My Elegy
Piotrek and Ola of Re-enchantment of the World, for their discussion of the women in the Witcher stories by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski
Lory, of Emerald City Book Review, who last year retired her Witch Week broom yet found time to review Madeline Miller’s Circe and participate in our discussion of Le Guin’s The Other Wind
people — too numerous to mention — who added comments and questions; posted pingbacks, links, and reviews on their own blogs; and Tweeted/Facebooked links to our posts

For anyone not yet sated, here are the links for the Emerald City Book Review Master Posts from earlier years:

Witch Week 2017: Dreams of Arthur
Witch Week 2016: Made in America
Witch Week 2015: New Tales from Old
Witch Week 2014: Diana Wynne Jones

Thanks again to all of you for sharing this event with us, and we hope you’ll join us next year, when our theme will be … VILLAINS.

    1. It’s been a delight to have bloggers like you and Piotrek prepared to add their informative ideas to the mix, and with such good grace too! I’m sure, from the comments and ‘likes’, that Lizzie and I aren’t the only ones to have been cheered by the response to the posts and stimulated by the fizz of concepts and insights. Yay to all of us! 🙂

  1. It was such a pleasure to be part of this. Like Chris, I was thrilled to read the responses, and happy to know that we and our guest bloggers gave our readers plenty to think about. Onward and upward!
    Or, for next year’s Villains theme, should that be “Backward and downward”? What’s the Latin antonym of “excelsior”?


  2. And let me just mention what a wonderful blogging partner Chris has proven to be. We’ve collaborated twice before (see our tag-team discussions of Watchmen and Cymbeline), but never engaged in something like this.

    Thank you, Chris, for inviting me to join you on this adventure. In between your contributions to musical performances and literary festivals and Best-High-Street-in-England contests, you’ve worked hard to make this week a success for both our blogs.

    I expect next year to be as much fun and am already rubbing my hands in villainous glee. Oh, boy, we get to write about our favorite baddies!


    1. Thanks, BJ, it’s been an absolute pleasure being involved in this event, and we’re hoping from the many positive responses different posts have had that readers have enjoyed it too! And I too would like to read more UKLG, I feel I’ve barely scratched the surface of her written work.

    1. We all love a good villain, don’t we! (And I mean a well-written one whom we can believe in as well as rejoicing in their downfall!). Glad you enjoyed WW2018 and got a lot out of it. 🙂
