Announcing the March Witchy Readathon with the Optional Theme Witchy Academia!

I recently discovered I have an affinity for the genre called dark academia. Dark academia is a book genre that is centered around higher education, writing, the arts, Greek/Roman mythology, and includes classic literature. 

Related to this genre is witchy academia. The genre of witchy academia is witchcraft or magick set in an environment or community concerned with the pursuit of research, education, and scholarship or features mythology. Some examples include the Harry Potter seriesThe Magicians Trilogy, the All Souls Trilogy. and Circe

I'm excited to explore books in this genre so I've decided to host another round of WitchyReadathon in March with an optional Witchy Academia theme. 

This readathon is unique because it includes fiction and nonfiction books. (I know some of you may be saying wait, there are nonfiction books about witchcraft? Yes, there is! You can see my top ten favorites here!) 

 The Rules:
  • This readathon begins March 1, 2021 and ends March 31, 2021
  • You may sign up anytime during the challenge. 
  • I won't be creating different challenge levels or prompts. I've always preferred a more open flexible readathon style.
  • Read as little or as many books as you want. Even if you just read one book I want you to participate!
  • You may include books of any format including traditional books, ebooks, or audiobooks.
  • Books may be nonfiction or fiction. (Here's a list of my top ten favorite nonfiction books on witchcraft and magick!) Fiction books can be any genre but they need to have a magical person as the main or supporting character. This can be any kind of magical person such as a witch, wizard, magician, shaman, pathworker, bruja/brujo, druid, shapeshifter, and so on. The story must focus on magic in some way. 
  • You may reread books. Books may count towards other reading challenges. 
  • Books may count towards my WitchyYear Reading Challenge.. Note you do NOT have to participate in both challenges to participate in this readathon.
  • Use the hashtag #WitchyReadathon on social media
  • If you could be so kind, please place the Witchy Readathon banner on your blog to help spread the word. 
  • Please link back to this blog, post about it on Instagram, tweet about it, and so on to help spread the word.
