Flying into the weekend…
Title: The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches
Author: Sangu Mandanna
I love books about found family so this one was right up my alley! It gave me slight vibes to The House in the Cerulean Sea. Also, The Rules of Magic because of the three siblings.
Mika Moon is a witch and has been taught to stay away from other witches so their powers don’t mingle. She’s used to following the rules as an orphan who lost her parents at a young age and was raised by strangers. But, a witch still needs a creative outlet, so Mika figures it’s okay to post videos online of her “pretending” to be a witch. Next thing she knows she receives and unexpected message summoning her to the Nowhere House begging her to teach three young witches how to control their magic. And oh the cast of characters at this house! Will Mika finally find a place to belong that she so desperately wants?
My favorite was her broomstick car! And the little bit of grumpy sunshine romance in this. 4.5 ⭐️
Title: Witch of Wild Things
Author: Raquel Vasquez Gilliand
This one is definitely “witchy” and magical, but heads up that it actually takes place in the summertime. There is no fall to be had in this book if that’s what you’re going for. A story about plants might make up for it, though.
Sage moved away from her family after her sister Sky died. But, her circumstances have changed and she needs a job and a place to stay; leaving her no options but to move back home. Her magic is the ability to communicate with plants, so she starts working back at her old job helping in the fields again. Things get a little complicated when her high school crush that broke her heart starts working there too and they are tasked on a project together. Oh, and let’s not forget her dead sister haunts her; plus her other sister blames her for the death.
I enjoyed this (especially the romance), but had trouble connecting to the main character in this one. I love magic, but the story arc with the dead sister was a lot! 3.5 ⭐️
All in all two great October books for your TBR!
