Five Witchy Books

Since Halloween is fast approaching… :)


The Witches by Roald Dahl – My favorite Roald Dahl book ever (which is saying a lot) features some very creepy and nasty witches. Beware of women with gloves and itchy heads!


Witchery Hill by Welwyn Wilton Katz – A spooky page-turner by a Canadian author, in which a girl’s stepmother is truly wicked, though of course all of the grown-ups refuse to see it.


The Magic Circle by Donna Jo Napoli – Hansel and Gretel from the witch’s point of view. A look into her theoretical past makes her surprisingly sympathetic — and her end shockingly tragic.


Bras & Broomsticks by Sarah Mlynowski – One of the most fun witch books you’ll ever read, about a teen attempting to take advantage of her younger sister’s witchy heritage (which has passed the older sister by).


The Changeover by Margaret Mahy – A boy witch! Whom Laura must turn to, and awaken powers of her own with, in order to save her little brother. An intense and eerie story.

I love The Changeover! I don't remember where I found my copy but I've never seen another until now.

It's a great book. One of those I loved as a teen and was relieved to find it held up when I read it again as an adult!

The Witches is also my favorite RD book!!! and I've had The Changeover on my to-read list for ages. This list is awesome. :D

The Witches is possibly my favorite children's book ever (definitely in the top five). Check out The Changeover when you get a chance!
