Top Five Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads. Today’s topic was favorite books featuring witches. I already did this prompt few years ago (you can find that post here) but I’ve changed my mind on some books in that list.
One day I might unhaul all books from Sookie Stackhouse series except for this one. Teenage enjoyed these books but after rereading most of them– I mostly just cared about Sookie’s relationship with Eric and this one was one of the only book focusing on that. Witches curse and the ”war” against them was pretty interesting even if I didn’t care of the actual witches.
I didn’t enjoy rest of the series that much but Trial by Fire aka first book in Worldwalker series was so different in my opinion. I read it years before reading The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare so the whole mirror world thing was so refreshing and I loved seeing a character trying to live in a world when her “mirror self” is evil.
This world doesn’t focus on witches/ warlocks that much but I think everyone can agree that everyone would’ve been dead or miserable without Magnus Bane?
Carry On was everything Harry Potter wasn’t to me. I’m so glad I changed my mind about reading this even though if I wasn’t big fan of the second book. I just need Baz and Simon to get their happy ending. I liked how the first book didn’t only have a friends to enemies to romance but a hero trying his best even if his girlfriend broke up with him, his powers never did what he told him to and I just wish there were more books about witches I’d enjoy as much as this one.
I love how we didn’t get to the witchcraft right away in this series. Apparently I really like books where the witch wishes they weren’t as powerful as they were but still trying their best to save everyone.
What are your favorite books with witches? Opinions about my picks?
