Hello to all! Are you participating in #blogtober? It’s a month of blog prompts organised by Anniek’s Library and The Library Looter!

It’s October 11th and today’s theme is WITCH YA!!

πŸ”– Witchy by Ariel Slamet Ries | GR

πŸŒ™ hair magic
πŸŒ™ family relations
πŸŒ™ finding yourself
πŸŒ™ unlikely allies 

Summary:

In the witch kingdom Hyalin, the strength of your magic is determined by the length of your hair. Those that are strong enough are conscripted by the Witch Guard, who enforce the law in peacetime and protect the land during war. However, those with hair judged too long are pronounced enemies of the kingdom, and annihilated. This is called a witch burning. Witchy is a comic about the young witch Nyneve, who is haunted by the death of her father and the threat the Witch Guard poses to her own life. When conscription rolls around, Nyneve has a choice to make; join the institution complicit in her father’s death, or stand up for her ideals?

πŸ”– The Book Woman by Laurel Beckley | GR

πŸŒ™ f/f
πŸŒ™ book magic!

Summary:

As an assistant editor at the prestigious Hanhat Publishers, Evie Southiel is entrusted with fine-tuning the manuscripts of the company’s most important authors. Her skills as a book witch allow her to manipulate the stories she reviews and bring them to life.

Then her girlfriend steals the secret manuscript of Hanhat’s best-selling author and leaks it to the press, and Evie is exiled to become a journey carrier with the Pack Horse Librarians in the eastern mountains.

Timid city mouse Evie doesn’t know the first thing about surviving in the wilderness, riding a horse, or dealing with the rugged mountain folk and coal miners surrounding the town of Hevis. She does know books, though, and she’s determined to do the best job she can. But that goal is jeopardized when her horse gets spooked on her first solo run, sending her tumbling out of the saddle and into a mysterious mother’s life.



πŸ”– Spellbook of the Lost and Found by MoΓ―ra Fowley-Doyle | GR

πŸŒ™ magical realism
πŸŒ™ f/f & f/m
πŸŒ™ mystery
πŸŒ™ letting things go

Summary:

One stormy summer night, Olive and her best friend, Rose, begin to lose things. It starts with simple items like hair clips and jewellery, but soon it’s clear that Rose has lost something bigger; something she won’t talk about.

Then Olive meets three wild, mysterious strangers: Ivy, Hazel and Rowan. Like Rose, they’re mourning losses – and holding tight to secrets.

When they discover the ancient spellbook, full of hand-inked charms to conjure back lost things, they realise it might be their chance to set everything right. Unless it’s leading them towards secrets that were never meant to be found . . .

Summary:

Nothing says Happy Birthday like summoning the spirits of your dead relatives. Alex is a bruja, the most powerful witch in a generation…and she hates magic. At her Deathday celebration, Alex performs a spell to rid herself of her power. But it backfires. Her whole family vanishes into thin air, leaving her alone with Nova, a brujo boy she can’t trust. A boy whose intentions are as dark as the strange marks on his skin. The only way to get her family back is to travel with Nova to Los Lagos, a land in-between, as dark as Limbo and as strange as Wonderland…




πŸ”– The Brilliant Death by Amy Rose Capetta | GR

πŸŒ™ Italy inspired land
πŸŒ™ revenge plot
πŸŒ™ enemies to lovers

Summary:

Teodora di Sangro is used to hiding her magical ability to transform enemies into music boxes and mirrors. Nobody knows she’s a strega–and she aims to keep it that way.

Then she meets Cielo–and everything changes.

A strega who can switch outward form as effortlessly as turning a page in a book, Cielo shows Teodora what her life could be like if she masters the power she’s been keeping secret. And not a moment too soon: the ruler of Vinalia has poisoned the patriarchs of the country’s five controlling families, including Teodora’s father, and demands that each family send a son to the palace.

If she wants to save her family, Teodora must travel to the capital–not disguised as a boy, but transformed into one. But the road to the capital, and to bridling her powers, is full of enemies and complications, including the one she least expects: falling in love.
