WITCH WEEK DAY SEVEN: Ending/Beginning

That wraps up Witch Week 2018, and Chris and Lizzie 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
  • Piotr 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
  • our readers around the world.

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

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.

    Thanks, Lizzie, for all the vision and the planning and chivvying behind this year’s Witch Week which has made this the success it was, such imaginative ideas to push this forward and enthusiasm when a lesser person (me!) would have faltered.

    And thanks too for suggesting next year’s theme: we’ve already discussed a couple of suggestions as to which directions this could go, which has made me excited even before WW2018 has ended! 🙂

      You got the GMT jump on me, Chris. A more expansive thank-you will soon be on your blog.
      And, you’re quite welcome. I think you give me too much credit — I’m happy to split all praise (and blame) 50/50. We both worked hard on this.
      Here’s to next year! Everyone, get ready to BOO and HISS.

        I’d forgotten about pantomime villains and those in Victorian melodrama: in British panto the cry always is ‘Behind you!’ when the hero or similar is unaware of the imminent villainy the audience can see all too clearly!

        And yes, yay to both of us and everyone else who’s made a contribution to this week! 🙂

      • Lizzie Ross says:

        I’ve never seen a panto, but know about them from various films/TV series. Like with our blogs, audience participation is required.

    Thank you for all the work that was involved in co-hosting this event. I hope you had lots of fun along the way! I’m thinking that I would like to read the Earthsea series sometime in the future.

    • Lizzie Ross says:

      I’m glad you enjoyed what Chris and I pulled together this year, BJ. And I’m sure you’ll enjoy the Earthsea series. It’s really amazing how Le Guin lets that world evolve over the almost 40 years (I’ve only just now done the math — wow!) in which she wrote the 6 books.
      And thanks again for linking to your related post about The Bear and The Nightingale. I’ve put that on my TBR list.
