  1. This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2012 - Dec 31, 2012.  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)
  2. Grab the reading challenge button (code & button below) and post this reading challenge on your blog to track your progress.

  1. So glad that you are joining Michelle!! I'll check out those books you mentioned:)

  2. Hi there! Go Witches! In solidarity, I'd love to give you a copy of my latest novel, a YA paranormal romance called AUDREY'S GUIDE TO WITCHCRAFT. I noticed you joined Melissa's Witches and Witchcraft Reading Challenge, so I figured you might have a soft spot for magic!

    Here's a link where you can download it for free on any computer or e-reader:

    A short synopsis: Falling in Love, baking a magical cake, fighting an evil necromancer—it’s all in a day’s work for Audrey Oliver, seventeen-year-old witch-in-training. When her mother goes missing and her twenty-one-year-old witchy cousin shows up out of the blue, Audrey knows something’s gone horribly, dangerously wrong. Now it’s up to her to get her own magical powers up to speed before everyone she loves is destroyed by the sorcerer intricately connected to her mother’s secret past.
