The moment October begins is the moment all the witchy books come out. I mean, is there even a better way to kick off spooky season? I think not.
In the past, I’ve mentioned that I’m not someone who enjoys scary books (or scary… anything, really). I tend to be drawn towards cozy or witchy fantasy and rom-coms around Halloween, rather than horror or creepy-crawly, spine-tingling stories. Each October, I try to read a combination of new-to-me titles and old favorites. In 2022, I put an emphasis on picking up as many witchy books as I possibly could!
Right now, my list of favorite witchy reads is still relatively small, but I have this inkling that it’s going to continue to grow each year. You’ll notice that Rachel Griffin is the absolute queen when it comes to this kind of book, taking the top 3 spots in my round-up. Her books are on another level of atmospheric, witchy goodness and I highly recommend all of them for the ultimate October reading experience!
