Monday, October 3

Next week, we're trying something a little different: our first ever (Best) Magic System discussion.
Several questions need to be asked before then:
1. You might want to think about some of the following questions:
What's your favorite magic system?
In what book is it?
How does it work, and who can do magic?
2. Think of your own feelings about "magic". Do you like it? If you could design a magic system, what would it be and how would it work?
3. We'd like to get some answers from our readers, too! Leave comments below!

Brandon Sanderson fans might like his viewpoint:
(This is probably what I'll be basing, at least in part, the discussion on. Idea credit, too, as to Goodreads.)


  1. Clare, lots of books have magic. A magic system is just an explanation of how the magic comes along and who has it in each book. For example, the magic system in Harry Potter has wizards who control magic that they are gifted to at birth with wands.

  2. Thanks for sharing the Sanderson blog post. It's interesting to consider hard magic v. soft magic. It makes me wonder, where does the occult (witches, werewolves, etc.) fall in the spectrum?

  3. I love magic, i think it is an important part of everyday life, and we should embrace it whole-heartedly.
