Witch book’s next? (blog)
by Katie Killian
Fall is finally here, which means it’s the season of the witch! And what’s more fitting than cosying up with some friends and reading for a spell?
If you’ve been toiling through any books lately, trouble no longer! Might I recommend Forged by Blood - a brand new Nigerian-inspired witchy fantasy novel I’ve been sinking my teeth in of late, with the most stunning cover? Or if you’re looking for something sweeter and more quaint, a favorite author of mine - Jenna Evans Welch - wrote a witchy YA romance last year that I’ve read several times and can definitely recommend: Spells for Lost Things.
There’s plenty more on the list worth a look or two if you’re in the spirit!
