Theme Thursday is a new monthly feature created by Sophie @ Blame Chocolate where bloggers can share recs and newly found books featuring that month’s theme.
- There will be a different theme (genre, trope, etc) every month. You can check the theme calendar here.
- Those participating have to list titles that feature that theme in some way (doesn’t have to be the main theme of the book).
- You can choose one of the four (or five) Thursdays of every month to post.
- You can use the three main categories: Books I’ve Read/I’m Reading, Books I Want to Read, and Other Books That Fit The Theme but this isn’t mandatory.
- You can repeat books in different themes, if they apply, and choose as many as you want.
- You don’t have to take part every month! Just when you feel like it.
- You can use #BlameThemeThursday on Twitter and other social media to make TT posts easier to find.
- Finally, use this boxed text (or similar) in your post, as it doubles as a pingback.
Of course what grabbed my attention was the theme for October, WITCHES! Considering I haven’t done or posted anything even remotely Halloween-y this year due to the chaos of you know, getting married, I thought this would be a fun thing to write about on Halloween day! In retrospect, I would probably drag out each month’s theme for several Thursdays, posting each Books I’ve read/Am reading, Books on my TBR and Other Books with this Theme, all separately, but since I was late to the game on this one, here are all three!
Books I Have Read That Feature Witches:
You can click on the covers for links to my reviews OR their Goodreads page.
If you couldn’t tell by the name of my blog, I have a fascination with witches. I don’t typically read fantasy, or at least I didn’t think I did, but with the recent surge of witch-y tales, I find myself more and more drawn to the genre. There are so many ways to swing it, so many different ways to wield and showcase magic, that I never grow tired of the subject. I will say it does get a bit annoying that so many witch stories take place in the cliche’d Massachusetts, BUT I will NOT let that get me down! To me, any kind of “magic wielder” qualifies as a witch, so that is the reason for some of these fantasy books that feel a bit far-fetched.
Books on my TBR that Feature Witches:
** The coverless Blood and Honey by Shelby Mahurin (book two in Serpent and Dove series) would also be on this list.
In otherwords…ALL the witchy books are on my TBR. And I am always looking for more! Feel free to recommend any that I’m missing!
Other Books about/that feature Witches:
PLEASE tell me what I am missing! I am ALWAYS interested in witch-based stories. Let me know what you’ve read that you feel is missing from my list(s)!
