October book list - Witches

The Utah Chapter of the Children's Literature Book Club is just getting started and Since it's the bewitching season, we're reading books about witches. We're starting things slowly so the list is short. We're reading The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare And The Widow's Broom by Chris Van Allsburg
I've also asked each member to read at least one other book about witches and bring it to share. Here are a few titles that came to mind as possibilities:
Which Witch by Eva Ibbotson
Well Witched by Frances Hardinge
The Frog Princess Series by E.D. Baker
Witch Child by Celia Rees
The Witches of Dredmoore Hollow by Riford McKenzie
The Witches by Roald Dahl
The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

Look for discussion questions later this month along with a list of the books members brought to share.

What's your favorite witch book?

Howl's Moving Castle and several other Diana Wynne Jones books...and Susan Cooper's Greenwitch?

I have to smile--I found this post because of a Google alert on my YA that came out this spring, Bewitching Season. And yes, it has witches in it.

I love most anything by John Bellairs (lots of witches). and Jennifer, Hectate, Macbeth, William McKinley and Me, Elizabeth by E.L. Konisburg was always one of my favorites growing up!
