Bookie Brunch- Trick or Treat..#Witches

Image
This Halloween fellow blogger Sasha Soren brings to you Bookie Brunch Trick or Treat Blog Hop!
And I bring to you Witches, Cats and Bats this season.
Episode#1 Witches

Disclaimer: Witches can be a controversial topic because it often inter twines with religion. My religious views will remain mostly unexpressed in this post. This is just meant to be fun trivia and not to offend anybody. Witches to me are like Unicorns or Santa Claus. I believe in them and I am open to debate about their existence. Various cults and covens of Witches and Warlocks exists. Their credibility to me is open to question. Their practices and beliefs dazzle me.  So in conclusion Witches make a very interesting Halloween theme. 
So have fun! :D


The word ‘Witchcraft’ has been derived from the word ‘Wicca’ which means ‘the wise one’. Witchcraft has been seen as a magical phenomenon, a pagan worship or religion, sorcery, and others, at different periods in Witchcraft History.

Thin Air Blog Tour Stop- The Sylph?

Image
For those of you who haven't marked you calendars yet, The Magic Attic is hosting a book blog tout for Thin Air by Lynn Seresinn! As the header says the tours runs from the 3rd to the 31st of October.
Today I am very excited to have Lynn Guest Posting on my blog! She will be talking about one of the elements involved in her book- The Sylph 

Sylph.  The very word conjures up a feeling of airiness, grace, and delicacy, doesn’t it? Even if you’re unfamiliar with its meaning, you probably wouldn’t imagine it associated with anything heavy, awkward, or cumbersome. It just has to refer to something…light.
A sylph, in simplest terms, is an air spirit—a male air spirit, to be precise. Females are called sylphids. The notion of nature spirits—non-physical entities inhabiting water, earth, air, and fire—held an important place in the ancient belief systems of Greece, Rome, Egypt, China, and India for thousands of years. The people of earliest antiquity did not have the scientific tools and know…

Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

Image
My very first Youtube video! *cheers* to me!
Lia and Cassie were best friends, wintergirls frozen in matchstick bodies. But now Cassie is dead. Lia's mother is busy saving other people's lives. Her father is away on business. Her step-mother is clueless. And the voice inside Lia's head keeps telling her to remain in control, stay strong, lose more, weigh less. If she keeps on going this way—thin, thinner, thinnest—maybe she'll disappear altogether. In her most emotionally wrenching, lyrically written book since the National Book Award finalist Speak, best-selling author Laurie Halse Anderson explores one girl's chilling descent into the all-consuming vortex of anorexia" - Goodreads

Do leave me a link in the comments section to your Wintergirls reviews. I would love to hear what you thought of it..you could even leave me your vlog links and reviews of other Laurie Anderson books...
