This February, I’m participating in my first readathon! It’s hosted by Asha and there’s more info here. I never thought I’d participate in any, but how could I say no to one that is dedicated to witches and witchcraft? My TBR is almost exclusively witchy, so I’m going to (finally) share it… or at least half of it!
Season of the Witch and Daughter of Chaos by Sarah Rees Brennan: I’m a big fan of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, so when I browsed Barnes & Noble one day and found out there were novels, I was stoked. I’m definitely starting the readathon with these!
The Witches of New York by Ami McKay: The plot of this book sounds oh-so-interesting. Two women run a tea shop, and one who is seeking employment has an unusual gift that causes a sort of tug-of-war between them. The gifted woman disappears, and it’s up to the shop owners to find her, coming face-to-face with their own pasts in the process of their search.
Toil & Trouble: This is a diverse anthology and I’m excited to read it. Each story is about a witch that is told from a different background.
The Witch Boy by Molly Knox Ostertag: A book about a boy wanting to be a witch instead of a shapeshifter and subverting tradition? I am all for such books. Although it’s fiction, boys can absolutely be witches in the real world. History tells us that not only women were accused or practicing.
Cakespell by Gaby Triana: I love magical food, especially enchanted desserts, and this sounds like an adorable and delectable read. It’s about a teenage witch who just wants to be a professional baker, but a spell she discovers makes her one-person business a little too popular.
Brownies and Broomsticks by Bailey Cates: Another novel with magical baked goods! There’s a bakery as well as a murder mystery. I plan to read the whole series, at least over time.
Slouch Witch by Helen Harper: I love the idea of a lazy witch who just can’t give a damn. She avoids hard work and
boy, so do I it’ll be interesting to see how she deals with being roped into some serious events.
A Match Made in Spell by Regina Welling and Erin Lynn: Romance isn’t my thing, but the idea of a witch with matchmaking powers is actually cute and interesting to me.
Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin: Again, romance isn’t my thing, but THIS. This sounds so good. The kind of risky, forbidden romance between a witch and a witch hunter is one that should make me swoon.
Glamour Magic by Deborah Castellano: The blurb of this book speaks to me and it says, “Witchcraft is POWER.” Looking forward to an intense read.
Psychic Witch by Mat Auryn: I’m not fond of “energy” being used to describe magical forces, but I get the idea and suspect plenty of insight across the pages of this book.
As you can see, there’s more fiction than nonfiction in my Februwitchy TBR. I’ve focused so much on real-world witchcraft that I’m in need of a break, so I’ll be escaping into other worlds with different magical laws. 😉
Are you participating in any readathons, fellow bookish people? I know about #Pondathon and it seems like a lot of fun! But, alas, I am a witch and #Februwitchy is calling me.
