Witchy Reads

October's Monthly Recommendations topic is Witchy Reads. At first I though I didn't have much to say about his topic, but then I started thinking of various witch books to mention. So here goes.

The Witching Hour by Anne Rice - This is the first book in the Mayfair Witches series. It's the only one I read in the series because it was super scary. Well, it was when I was in college. I don't know if I could read it now, but I'm not likely to try.

The Witches by Roald Dahl - To lighten the mood a little bit, I'll add this lovely little children's book about witches.

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness - This lovely series is being made into a TV show. It will be on some obscure cable station you have to pay to access it. It's a brand new station that no one's ever heard of and probably no one will pay the money to get it and no one will ever see the show, but it's on a regular station in England.

The Heretic's Daughter and The Wolves of Andover by Kathleen Kent - We read both of these books for book club. They are about the Salem Witch Trials. These are really good books. We really enjoyed them. That's why we read two!

Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor - I haven't read this one, but I intend to. This is a book about some witch kids in Nigeria, saving kidnapped children.

The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe - This book jumps around in time as Harvard student Connie researches the history of her grandmother's Salem house.

Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco - My daughter read this one and really liked it.

Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova - Another one my daughter enjoyed. This one is YA.

The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare - And finally, one of my favorite witch books from childhood.
