Top 5 books featuring witches

Copy of Top 5 Wednesday Banner

Top 5 WednesdayHappy Wednesday! First off, I didn’t realized how few books I read that contain witches. I went through my entire list of read books and could only come up with three, and one of those has a witch in it at one time, but is by no means a recurring character. So it’s technically two, with a third ‘so-so’ thrown in there. Whoop. I need to branch out my reading, apparently.

3. Inuyasha by Rumiko Takahashi

InuYasha: Turning Back Time (InuYasha, #1)This is my ‘technically has a witch’ book. In one of the chapters towards the beginning of the series, a witch appears briefly and reincarnates a character that has been dead for 50 years. No spoilers of who, on the chance you haven’t read or watched it, but that instance is the witch character’s only appearance in the super-duper-long series.


2. Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)This is going to be on everyone’s list, especially if the list-makers can’t come up with five books, same as me.

Hermione rocks my socks.



1. Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

Ella EnchantedThis book’s main plot sparks into motion as the result of a witch casting a spell on the main character. The witch herself is present come-and-go throughout the book, but isn’t a major character. Her spell though, is rather prominent.

I read and re-read this book growing up, but for some reason it didn’t pop into my head as ‘witch book’ until I saw it when scrolling through my list for selections. Weird.



So uh… yeah, there’s my three-book-long list of five witch books. 😛 This topic was not my best, hawhaw. Happy reading!

  1. I totally didn’t even think about including manga! I’m usually so good about that… not that I have many ideas off the top of my head lol, but I’m sure I could have thought of something eventually ^_^ I actually forgot about the witch in Inuyasha.
