Hey guys I’m back for my second Blogoween post, I have been super busy this week, but im gonna try to post this weekend. Anyway todays (well technically yesterdays) is Top 5 books about witches but sadly I havent read many witch books so im gonna be doing 5 witch books on my TBR.
- THE WICKED DEEP BY SHEA ERNSHAW
So this book originally caught my attention because THIS COVER!!! (sorry but im love) , but I looked at synopsis and it looks really good. But I haven’t picked it up.
Two centuries ago, three sisters were sentenced to death for witchery. Stones were tied to their ankles and they were drowned in the waters surrounding the town.
Now, each summer, the sisters return, stealing the bodies of three weak-hearted girls so that they may seek their revenge, luring boys into the harbor and pulling them under.Seventeen-year-old Penny Talbot has accepted the fate of the town. But this year, on the eve of the sisters’ return, a boy named Bo Carter arrives; unaware of the danger he has just stumbled into. Mistrust and lies spread quickly through the streets. The townspeople turn against one another. But only Penny sees what others cannot. And she will be forced to choose: save Bo, or save herself.
2. WILD BEAUTY BY ANNA-MAIRE MCLEMORE
I don’t actually own this book but its own my TBR, I’m not 100% its witches but someone told me it is so I’m putting here anyway
For nearly a century, the Nomeolvides women have tended the grounds of La Pradera, the lush estate gardens that enchant guests from around the world. They’ve also hidden a tragic legacy: if they fall in love too deeply, their lovers vanish. But then, after generations of vanishing, a strange boy appears in the gardens. The boy is a mystery to Estrella, the Nomeolvides girl who finds him, and to her family, but he’s even more a mystery to himself; he knows nothing more about who he is or where he came from than his first name. As Estrella tries to help Fel piece together his unknown past, La Pradera leads them to secrets as dangerous as they are magical in this stunning exploration of love, loss, and family.
3. TOIL & TROUBLE (15 TALES OF WOMEN & WITCHCRATF) EDITED JESSICA SPOTSWOOD , TESS SHARPE.
I saw this at indigo the other and it looked super interesting. Ita a collection of anthologies about witches
what could be better?
Glinda the Good Witch. Elphaba the Wicked Witch. Willow. Sabrina. Gemma Doyle. The Mayfair Witches. Ursula the Sea Witch. Morgan le Fey. History tells us women accused of witchcraft were often outsiders: educated, independent, unmarried, unwilling to fall in line with traditional societal expectations. Bold. Powerful. Rebellious.
A bruja’s love spell has unexpected results. A witch’s healing hands begin to take life instead of giving it when she ignores her attraction to a fellow witch. In a terrifying future, women are captured by a cabal of men crying witchcraft and the one true witch among them must fight to free them all. In a desolate past, three orphaned sisters prophesize for a murderous king. Somewhere in the present, a teen girl just wants to kiss a boy without causing a hurricane. From good witches to bad witches, to witches who are a bit of both.
4. SEA WITCH BY SARAH HENNING
I have this book in real life and on my TBR. I’ve heard mixed reviews for this book, I’ve seen quite a few 5🌟 reviews but I recently lent it to my friend and she didn’t really like it.
Everyone knows what happens in the end. A mermaid, a prince, a true love’s kiss. But before that young siren’s tale, there were three friends. One feared, one royal, and one already dead.
Ever since her best friend, Anna, drowned, Evie has been an outcast in her small fishing town. A freak. A curse. A witch. A girl with an uncanny resemblance to Anna appears offshore and, though the girl denies it, Evie is convinced that her best friend actually survived. That her own magic wasn’t so powerless after all. And, as the two girls catch the eyes of two charming princes, Evie believes that she might finally have a chance at her own happily ever after. But her new friend has secrets of her own. She can’t stay in Havnestad, or on two legs, unless Evie finds a way to help her. Now Evie will do anything to save her friend’s humanity, along with her prince’s heart—harnessing the power of her magic.
5. HALF BAD BY SALLY GREEN
Haven’t heard much about this series but it sounds really good.
Sixteen-year-old Nathan lives in a cage: beaten, shackled, trained to kill. In a modern-day England where two warring factions of witches live amongst humans, Nathan is an abomination, the illegitimate son of the world’s most terrifying and violent witch, Marcus. Nathan’s only hope for survival is to escape his captors, track down Marcus, and receive the three gifts that will bring him into his own magical powers—before it’s too late. But how can Nathan find his father when there is no one safe to trust, not even family, not even the girl he loves?
That’s it guys those are my top 5 book about witches on my TBR.
