Summoning Spells: A Summoner Readathon!

Hello my lovely readers, how are we all doing?

You’re probably thinking ‘Kath, you’ve only just announced you’re doing a re-read of the Summoner series this week, why are you announcing a readathon?’

Well, let me tell you. I recently read The Summoner’s Handbook which includes the basic summoning spells, and I thought it would be fun to do a readathon based around them and had even more fun coming up with the prompts!

There is no passing or failing in this, but you will be able to increase your summoning level with each book you read. For those of you not totally familiar with the series and/or demonology but still want to take part, a person’s summoning level determines which demons she or he is able to summon, but I won’t get into that in this post, because I’ll be doing another which will detail which demons you’d be able to summon depending on how many books you’ve managed to read over the month, at the end of the readathon.  There are twenty-four summoner spells and reading prompts in this readathon, but you don’t have to do all twenty-four of them (after all, it’s a lot of books to read) but if you want to go for it! I’ll be very impressed and proud if some of you are able to manage that.

The readathon is going to run from the end of November until the day before New Year’s Eve, but I’m publishing this a month early to give everyone time to create their tbr – and I’ll be taking part too :D, and will be publishing a post featuring my tbr over the next week or so.

I’ve listing the spells and book prompts below,  but have also included a link to a Sheets document so everyone can log their book choices and keep track of which spells they’ve mastered.
