Get Your Witch On! 10 Wickedly Witchy Books

Are you looking for witchy books this season? From witches grounded in a deep Wiccan past to whimsical beasties with powers, witches take on many roles in modern day literature. I always wondered what was borderline cultural appropriation as soon as authors bring in the Wiccan religion. I’d love to know your thoughts.
