I actually read this at the end of last year and was really impressed. I wanted to review it right away but when I went to buy the rest of the series (all 3 are out) they weren’t available. The one time I’m reasonable with book buying it bite me in the butt.
Mulan Directed By: Niki Caro Apparently her real power is the hair. I mean not only did she never cut it but bouncing around in battle doing all these amazing things and it never gets in her face to allow her enemies to get the better of her. There was actually a moment in a … More Mulan 2020: Magic & Hair
Witches Abroad By: Terry Pratchett Luggage, Luggage, where are you? Okay I won’t whine about my favorite sentient baggage being absent because these days are the perfect days for Discworld and this is one of my favorites so far!
Serpent and Dove By: Shelby Mahurin Lou is a witch in hiding trying to make it as a thief. Reid is a witch-burning Chasseur. One day after a run in they are forced to wed in a contrivance so ridiculous I spent most of the rest of the book going what the hell?
The Furies By: Katie Lowe Dark school days seems all the rage right now right? And I’m always down for some witchy Craft vibes. The Furies was strong in a lot of ways but I think it followed the wrong main characters.
Enchantment By: Orson Scott Card I’ve been collecting fairy tale retellings recently and yeah for me for actually reading one!

Fake Blood By: Whitney Gardner Grade: A I thought I’d do quick mini-reviews of the rest of my “Halloween” reading as I throw myself into non-fiction/sci-fi November because there were some interesting reads. See Fake Blood. Which is completely my kind of relationship drama.
The Price Guide to the Occult By: Leslye Walton Grade: A Okay, this is definitely more witchy. Nor Blackburn lives with her grandmother on Anathema Island in the Pacific Northwest. Family roots on the island run deep and her great (many times) grandmother was the first witch on the island. When the locals burned down … More Black Magic & Bad Moms: The Price Guide to the Occult
The Witch of Willow Hall By: Hester Fox Grade: C Available: October 2nd After thinking about this book for a while it’s most like an origin story for a witch when said witch is the least interesting character. Also a love story. Also not that interesting. *Netgalley kindly provided me with a copy of the … More The Witch that Could Have Been…
Equal Rites By: Terry Pratchett Grade: A A dying wizard passes along his magic staff to the chosen eighth son of an eighth son. Only whoops- someone really should have checked on that first cause the son number eight happens to be a daughter and well, girls can’t become wizards! Which after reading about the … More Wizards vs. Witches in Equal Rites
