Okay so I’m pretty sure October only started last week but apparently, this is now the last Sunday of the month! I’m off to London MCM Comic-Con today and really rather excited about it! (Report and hopefully Vlog coming next week). First though, it’s time for Six for Sunday with the prompt for this week (from Steph at A Little but A Lot) “Witch-y Books” and I’ve read a fair few witch-y books in my time so this shouldn’t be too difficult.
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
The clue is in the title I guess? I read the first book in the All Souls series last year and I’ve been desperate to get back to the next one! I really loved this book and I like that we have not only witches but also Daemons and Vampires. You can find my spoiler-free review here.
Undead Girl Gang by Lily Andersen
One of my favourite reads from last year, I received an advance copy at YALC and instantly fell in love with this very Halloween-y feeling book. Mila is awesome and the twist in this really threw me. You can find my spoiler-free review here.
Sanctuary by V.V James
Defintley in my top three reads this year and certainly my favourite new release. This witch-y murder-y book was fantastic. It was also very stressful and full of twists and turns. I adored it. You can find my spoiler-free review here.
A Pocketful of Crows by Joanne Harris
Although not witchy in the exact same sense of most of the other books on the list I defintley think our nameless wild girl from A Pocketful of Crows is someone who would be classed as a witch. Not just because the villagers of the town name her so in an unkind or spiteful way but because of her connection to nature and the ritual of the magic she uses. Guess what? You can find my spoiler-free review here!
The Near Witch by V.E Schwab
Again, this one is a little different to most of the ones on the list as the main character isn’t a magic-user at all but is instead in search of one but this has a witch-y feel to it nether the less as she befriends a witch and goes to another group of witches for help. I loved the spooky, chilly vibes throughout this book. You know the drill, spoiler-free review here.
Finding Home Vol. Two: The Healer by Hari Conner
So this isn’t technically a book that would probably be regarded as a witch-y book BUT it does feature a witch annnd Chepi uses magic? I’m basically obsessed with this book right now and can’t stop going on about it so makes the list okay? Just check out my spoiler-free review for the funny pic of Janek.
So I guess that’s it for October. I’m kicking myself that I never got around to reading Hex-Life (yet) as it’s literally an anthology of witchy stories but things have been SO hectic. I honestly don’t know where all the time went? Anyway, hopefully I’ll see you back here tomorrow for my turn on the Angel Mage Blog Tour! (Part four of my Inktober posts will be Tuesday instead next week!)
