Written by Rachel Griffin, A Nature of Witches is a magical witch book that you are going to love.
Eva is a powerful everwitch, but she doesn’t want this power. After her magic goes rogue on her, she wants nothing more than to get rid of it once and for all. The problem is she may be the only one who can save the world from impending climate disasters.
This witchy fantasy has everything! A magic school, the chosen one, and some really sweet romance with a bisexual female main character. Bonus, this is a standalone fantasy, so you won’t have to read multiple books to get the full story.
This is an adorable story about a town where every year they leave a baby in the woods for the “evil witch”. The witch though has no idea why babies keep arriving in her woods. She takes the children, gives them starlight, and leaves them with loving families in other towns.
One day though, she accidentally gives a baby moonlight, giving her magic of her own. So, this baby is one she raises as her own daughter.
This is such a sweet story with a fairytale feel that kids and adults will love. It is perfect to read with your kids during the Halloween season!
Tamsin, the witch, was removed from her coven after a terrible accident. She lives in exile and as part of her punishment, her ability to feel emotions of her own has been taken from her.
Wren is a source. She may not have a magic of her own, but she can amplify the magic of others. When a dark curse starts to overtake their land, the two girls must team up, unwillingly, of course, to fight against the darkness.
This is a fantastic queer fantasy romance standalone. If you are wanting a great ya fantasy sapphic romance with witchy vibes, then is the one for you.
Magic for Liars is a book that many people say is perfect for adults who grew up reading Harry Potter.
Another fantasy standalone book about witches, this book follows Ivy, a private investigator with a sister who just so happens to be a witch. When there is a gruesome murder at the magic school that her sister teaches, Ivy is hired to investigate.
Ivy must uncover the murderer, dark magical dealing, and secrets that have been left in the shadows for far too long.

She becomes fascinated by her mom’s truths as they start to dismantle the lies surrounding the Church and the history of witches.
In 1983, witchcraft is all but extinct. Modern women of the time are fighting for power through the ballot box now instead of spells. But when three sisters join the suffragist movement, they start to use forgotten magic to help the cause of women everywhere.
Alix E Harrow’s writing is nothing short of beautiful. This is a story of women’s rights and fighting for power and equality in any way possible.
We follow Angrboda. Her story begins with burning for her refusal to provide information on the future to Odin. Injured and powerless, she flees to the forest where she is found by Loki.
