Six for Sunday: Witchy Books


Continuing the brilliant theme for autumn #SixforSunday, Steph is prompting us to look at witchy books. I absolutely love all things witchy, which you may have noticed from my Books I’d Take on an Autumn Walk post. So, I challenged myself to find six more witchy books, and here they are:

1. Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman. This was one of my first ever witchy books and remains a firm favourite. I adore Alice’s writing and I love the film this is linked to. I could read hundreds of books about the Owens family.

2. Perfectly Preventable Deaths by Dierdre Sullivan. This book is beautifully dark with a hefty dose of witchcraft. It shows the dark side of magic as well as the more natural side, and is a knock-out story. I couldn’t put it down.

3. The Magician’s Apprentice by Trudi Canavan. This one is more magician’s than witches, but it is magic all the same and a brilliant story. It was a surprisingly quick read for it’s size and I definitely plan to read the rest of the series.

4. The Wicked Deep by Shea Earnshaw. Three sisters executed for witchcraft haunt a small town by possessing the bodies of their girls and murder their boys each summer. Creepy and brilliant. I love this one.

5. The Burning by Laura Bates. This is a fantastically feminist book merging a modern day “witch hunt” with the history of witchcraft in a small village. This is one of the best books I’ve read this year.

6. The Strawberry Thief by Joanne Harris. I love all Joanne’s Chocolat books, but this is my favourite. It sees a new woman (with witchy vibes) come to Lansquenet-sous-Tannes and Vianne is not happy. It’s a brilliant book.

What books would make your witchy list? I am always looking for new witchy recommendations.

  1. The Burning is fab, so glad I picked it up after your recommendation. The Wicked Deep is on my TBR, and has been for a shamefully long time 🙈. Best witchy thing I’ve read this year is the Love Sugar Magic series!
