Books by Moonlight

I would like for this group to be a place where bookworms like myself can come together and share what they've read. Have fun trading titles and discussing characters.

Hi Tanwen and Ianna.

I am actually going to finish the Detective one first as my parents are going on holiday at the end of the month and one of them may want to borrow it for a holiday read.

Depending on how it finishes and whether or not I am drawn in, I will try her subsequent book,otherwise so far I am not too bothered if I don't read her again.

I will also check out the Tokein Reader, it sounds very interesting

Hiya Inanna! The essay is in The Tolkien Reader

Helen, I love that you are reading like three things at the same time! I have totally done that in the past as well. 

Right now I am re-reading Stephen King's "The Dark Tower Series" so well written!!! I am looking forward to trying some new pieces as well though!

Wow sound so much like me! I keep a large basket of books that I rotate and read a little of each. The Hedgwitch by Rae Beth sounds interesting as well. I'm not fond of an over load of detail either. Will be listing books here that I'm currently reading in a few weeks when I get home. Can't remember all of the authors and titles at the moment:) Thanks for the post, hugs, Ianna:)

Good afternoon, I love all sorts of books and read depending on mood. Reading has always been a main part of my life but i have been a bit slack this year as I have been busy doing crafty things for a change but recently I felt the need to read again.

I have 4 books by my bed at the moment and I am reading 3 of them - I am exercising the most self control imaginable to not start the 4th until I have finished one of the others.

the 3 I am on with now are:

Hedgwitch by Rae Beth - practical book on a solitary witch and starting on the path. - it is not bad at all, it is written in a series of letters from a witch to her 2 chela's

The Cuckoos calling by Robert Galbraith - a private detective story. its not bad, I am a 3rd of the way through and I believe I know whodunit - it is J K Rowling's pseudonym and I am finding it a bit too descriptive but that is just my opinion obviously

and a history book sort of semi text book on Edward 1st which is a surprisingly good read considering its academicalness (I know that is not a word but it suits what I am saying)

Tolkein, now he had an amazing mind. I have a couple of his books in my to read pile...

To read piles: in my opinion the single most exciting thing in a persons life. It is like a lucky dip of possibilities covering every genre and every style

and shutting up now :)

Ianna, I just read it this morning. I am pretty sure it was in "The Tolkien Reader". I will double check when I get home from work tonight.

Tanwen Kryztyl Fate, I found your post interesting, have not read Tolkien in years, are you saying he wrote an essay on Faries? Where would I find it? Thanks for posting, Ianna:)

Comment by Tanwen Kryztyl Fate on August 8, 2014 at 9:22am

The essay "On Fairy-Stories" is an excellent read. Tolkien's views about the fairy folk are quite intriguing. The best is that this is NOT a work of fiction. He presents this as an essay-an argument on: the fae and the role of fairy story in our world. Would love to know what you think.

Joy I also have Judika Illes 5000  spell book and I really wish she would have done a two book publication because the book is simply too cumbersome to use often. I agree with you, it IS an awesome book, love the fact that she also includes spells/rituals from around the world and gives background historical and practical info on so many things....It's definitely a great reference book on all things magical.... I highly recommend it to beginners and advanced practitioners alike. Could spend hours reading it. Blessings, Ianna:)

Greetings everyone! Just found this grp, I'm somewhat frustrated because I won't be home for another two mos visiting family in Louisiana. I have an extensive library but many of the books I want to share with this grp I've either forgotten the complete title and/or author. Will start participating and adding discussions when I get back home. Blessings, Ianna:)
