nyxjpg3Nyx at Night is the darkly delicious event at Nyx Book Reviews. To see all of the posts, go to the schedule

Although a big part of Halloween is the scares, not everyone enjoys that tingling sensation in their spine and quickly beating hearts. Luckily, there are plenty of amazing reads out these featuring witches, both old and modern, which aren’t scary at all. Below I’ve collected some of my favourite witchy reads, listing some of the ingredients that make them such enchanting stories.


Witch of Salt and Storm by Kendall Kulper (Goodreadsreview)

  • Haunting historical setting
  • Magic is laced into the society of a small island, putting great responsiblity on the main character’s shoulders to become a witch like her grandmother before her
  • Magic isn’t easy, but requires great sacrifice

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins (Goodreadsreview)

  • The main character is fun and bubbly instead of moody and introvert
  • Magic boarding school!
  • Hex Hall has ghosts, betrayals, and romance

Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood (Goodreadsreview)

  • The setting is reminiscent of a historical dystopian
  • It features three sisters, and their comraderie and conflicts are so life-like
  • Just look at that cover. LOOK AT IT

Industrial Magic by Kelley Armstrong (Goodreadsreview)

  • Although part of a larger Women of the Otherworld series filled with other supernatural beasties, the witches in this series are my favourite
  • Features the impossible romance of a witch and a warlock
  • Lots of amazing spell- casting action

Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison (Goodreadsreview)

  • Amazing wicca-based magic system
  • Rachel is a great main character you can root for
  • Has the best secondary characters ever (JENKS!)
