Announcing The Bone Witch Readalong for #WyrdandWonder 2023

It is April and so we are coming into full Wyrd and Wonder pre-mode! Working hard on getting everything ready for you all.

Next to the Howl’s Moving Castle readalong hosted by Dear Geek Place, I will be hosting another readalong for a young adult book I’ve been meaning to read for a few years.

This book will be:

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

This book just seemed very fitting for our magical and witchy theme and I hope you will jump on board with me. If others with me want to read on with this trilogy after this readalong I might host for the rest of it as well throughout the year.

The Book

When Tea accidentally resurrects her brother, Fox, from the dead, she learns she is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy means that she’s a bone witch, a title that makes her feared and ostracized by her community. But Tea finds solace and guidance with an older, wiser bone witch, who takes Tea and her brother to another land for training.

In her new home, Tea puts all her energy into becoming an asha—one who can wield elemental magic. But dark forces are approaching quickly, and in the face of danger, Tea will have to overcome her obstacles…and make a powerful choice.

Discussion Questions

During this readalong I will post questions here on the blog on the below dates. If there is someone else who wants to host a week that would be welcome as well. You can answer the questions in your own blog post or in the comments to my question post. I will try to link all your answers per week in my response. So don’t forget to drop your link below the blog post or add it into the posting schedule.

Wyrd and Wonder and Sci-Fi Month are combined in the discord server called OtherWorlds. Different channels will be added in the following month for this readalong and other things. You can always come and discuss the book with us there as well.
