April Reading List: Witches, Wizards and Other Worlds

The temperatures are heating up, gardens are starting to blossom and pop and it seems like the time for a dash of magic. Time for lemon cookies to bring happiness to those who eat them, reading the leaves of herbal teas mixed with sweet honey and a dive back into fantasy. The fairies all come out of hibernation, eager to stir up mischief, and it’s time for some other worldly adventures and a witchy recharge.

The Changeover by Margaret Mahy

Stumbling along another list of unique horror films, we recently uncovered an adaptation of this young adult book from the 80’s. I absolutely adored the movie and couldn’t believe it was once a book, so of course I purchased it right away! I’m excited to dig into this sweet romance with a twist on witchcraft and witches, hailing from New Zealand.

Midnight Riot by Ben Aaronovitch

It seems like every time I went to the local bookstore, my eyes would roam over the fantasy section and always lock on this series. Probably my intuition was trying to tell me something, as I know many people who have quite enjoyed this series and count it as one of their favorites. I finally caved in and got the first book. So looking forward to diving into this.

Every Heart A Doorway by Seanan McGuire

Another book that might have had a touch of kismet on it, I’d recently been thinking of a story involving a child who returns from a magical world. Along the lines of The Magicians perhaps, there is something in that trauma and story that begs for a little attention. That being said, I then stumbled over this book and could not click fast enough to purchase it. I’m excited to see how this plays out.

Cold Moon Over Babylon by Michael McDowell

A writer with two of my favorite movies under his belt as screenwriter, this book has been too long on the shelf and looks to fit perfectly into the other world motif of the month. With a super creepy vibe already obvious from the description, I’m excited for this hint of horror amidst the other fun and magical books on my tbr.

Indie Read Of The Month

The End Of Magic by Mark Stay

This epic fantasy brings about a twist in, as the title literally implies, the end of magic. Or is it? I don’t know, I’ll have to tackle this beast to find out!
