This month’s Top Five Wednesday posts are all based on my most anticipated holiday of the month, Halloween. The weather is starting to turn where I live, even though I am a tad reluctant to let go of the summer weather. But hey, bring on the cardigans, running weather, and tea please! Today’s T5W is all about books with witches. As I was scrolling though my ‘read’ shelf on Goodreads, I’ve come to realize that I haven’t really read books that feature witches, which is sad that being a witch was my go-to Halloween costume when I was younger!
The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas– In Heir of Fire, we get introduced to Manon Blackbeak of the Blackbeak Witch-clan. Manon has become one of my favorite characters in the series and I love seeing the world of witchery expand with each book.
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard– Truthwitch follows two witches Safi and Iseult, and unfortunately, I don’t remember too much about this one since I read it back in 2015. I’m interested in continuing on in the series but it’s definitely going to require a Truthwitch reread first.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell– I know they’re technically identified as magicians in the Carry On universe, but I’m counting Penelope and Agatha as witches!
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling – A bit of an obvious choice, I know, but who could really compete against Hermione Granger, Luna Lovegood, Ginny and Molly Weasley, Nymphadora Tonks, Minerva McGonagall and the rest of kick-butt women in Harry Potter!
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis– After loving The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe film adaptation when I was younger, I was so happy when my mom bought me the entire Chronicles of Narnia book series. I’ve forget a lot about this series, so I think it would be fun to rewatch the films.
