Fiction Books

Wondering about any witchy fiction books that might be fun to read. Maybe a mystery, adventure or even a love story. If it has some Magick research EVEN better :). Thank you in advance for your recommendations! Be well friends.

A friend of mine wrote a series of books she puts in the genre of magickal realism. The first one is called River Magic and the author’s name is M.A. Phillips. They’re great books and I highly recommend them! There are 3 books total so there’s much to read!

Yay I love all of these suggestions! I love Juliet Marillier’s books and her Blackthorn & Grim series is full of green magic and romance. Sistersong by Lucy Holland is a wonderful piece of historical fantasy with a strong nature-based magic element and just beautiful heartbreaking romance. The Poison Thread (US title, The Corset in the UK) by Laura Purcell is a dark, spellbinding Gothic chiller perfect for a rainy fall night. The Book of Gothel is a really interesting and very witchy retelling of Rapunzel, and The Children of Gods and Fighting Men is a magical historical fantasy set in 9th century Ireland, full of magic and fae!

I love Yasmine Galenore’s works. She’s a witch who writes urban fantasy. There’s this one series where the heroine is a forty-something divorcee who’s slightly chubby. LOL! Something in her books for everyone. Romance, adventure, mystery. They’re really fun!

the scapegracers is really good! it’s slightly more magic than magick, but it definitely has some real witchy elements.

Don’t mind me eating up these recommendations :laughing: :+1:

I read her Song of Achilles and it was both heartbreaking and really powerful- I’ve been meaning to read Circe too but I haven’t got my hands on a copy yet! It looks amazing though :closed_book: :sparkles:

I recently read The Dark Tide by Alicia Jasinska (I wrote a longer review of it for Book Club here) and it is a witchy fiction book with a bit of romance, mystery, sea monsters, ocean magick, and lots of adventure- but it is a bit dark so heads up if that’s not your cup of tea :ocean: :woman_mage:

I hope you’re able to find some fun books- happy reading, Melissa! :books::blush:
