TTT: My Witchy TBR

capture-20181029-170204.pngHi guys! How are y’all? Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Artsy Girl. The topic this week is a Halloween Freebie and since I’m having a witch week on the blog, I’m going to share the top ten witchy books on my TBR!

1. Toil & Trouble: 15 Tales of Women & Witchcraft by Tess Sharpe and Jessica Spotswood

This witchy anthology sounds wonderfully diverse and magical. I’m extra excited about it because it contains stories by some of my favorite YA writers like Zoraida Córdova, Anna-Marie McLemore and Brandy Colbert.

2. The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman

As much as I adore witchy sisters Gillian and Sally, their aunts Jet and Frances are my favorite Owens women. So of course I want to read this prequel to Practial Magic, which tells their story.

3. Strange Grace by Tessa Gratton

I’ve heard so many wonderful things about this YA fantasy book about a village that’s made a bargain with the devil. The fact that one of the three main characters is a witch only makes me more excited to read it.

4. Hocus Pocus & The All New Sequel by A.W. Jantha

36244389

Hocus Pocus is the classic Halloween movie and the Sanderson sisters are iconic. So I’m equal parts excited and nervous to read the novelization. I really hope it’s good!

5. A Secret History of Witches by Louisa Morgan

I haven’t heard anything about this book, but I think it sounds amazing. It follows five generations of witches from early 19th century Brittany to London during the Second World War.

6. The Circle by Mats Strandberg and Sara Bergmark Elfgren

I’ve had a copy of this Swedish book laying around for years and I just recently realized it’s about witches! It follows six very different girls who are drawn to an abandoned theme park one night and told they’ve been chosen to fight an ancient evil.

7. The Witches of New York by Ami McKay

This one was on my Halloween TBR, but I still haven’t gotten around to it. It’s set in 1880’s New York and follows three witches who run a magical tea shop, which sounds pretty cool to me.

8. The Hawkweed Prophecy by Irena Brignull

This is the most recent witchy addition to my TBR. I first heard about it in a comment yesterday and I think it sounds wonderful. It’s about two girls, with very different lives, who were switches at birth.

9. The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab

I’ve wanted to read The Near Witch for so long, but I haven’t been able to get my hands on a copy. So I was super excited to learn that it’s being reissued next year!

10. The Witching Hour by Anne Rice

I think Anne Rice is one of those authors that a certain kind of reader will always find their way to eventually. Considering my taste in books, her popularity and how much I read – I find it really weird that I haven’t yet. There’s no doubt I want to read this one first though. Duh, it’s about witches.

Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? Are there any you think I should pick up soon? I’d love to hear your opinions!

  1. I have Toil & Trouble on mine as well. I’ve heard so many wonderful things about it.

    I can’t believe I didn’t realize sooner that The Rules of Magic was a prequel to Practical Magic lol.

  2. I put the wicked deep and hex hall 2 in my October tbr because I was in a mood for witchy reads, but I read none of them hahha I guess I should give Strange Grace a chance, I’ve heard many people talking about it. 😀
