31 Days of Halloween: Day 3

It's Day 3 of 31 Days of Halloween and I have Tish Thawer's Top Ten Witchy Books. I am so excited to have Tish on my blog as I love and adore her even before she became an author who's books are AMAZING by the way. I will now turn my blog over to Tish.

I am so excited to be a part of Sabrina's Halloween event. When I saw it was a Top Ten list, I decided to resurrect a previous post of mine to show once again why my heart and mind have always dwelled within the paranormal genre. Please check out my fav picks below, and make sure to enter the giveaway for your chance to win my books featuring lots of magic and witches for your enjoyment this holiday season.

 Are you familiar with the saying "You are what you eat?" Well, in the writing world it's been said, "You write what you read." *Raises hand* I confess...that's totally me. Not in the negative way that we've seen plastered all over the news feeds recently *cough - plagiarism* but in the way of being so consumed by a specific genre that I couldn't have possibly written any other type of book, even if I tried. Does this sound narrow-minded and limit my reading choices? Maybe. But I know myself well enough as a person to know what I like and to stick to it with no apologies.

The reason for my particular fondness for this particular genre is simple. I have always had a VERY strong connection to anything paranormal or otherworldly. (Some would even say this connection is akin to a sixth sense or psychic gift.) Since I was a little girl my gifts has always helped me to live my life with an open mind and heart, and eyes that can see the magic that permeates the world when I take the time to look hard enough. It's that awareness which led me to read and immensely enjoy books which transported me to worlds where magic was an everyday occurrence and not something metaphysical, but something that coalesces into a very physical presence in the character's everyday lives.

Below you will find my top ten favorite magical books (specifically featuring witches), which by the way was extremely difficult to choose since I have hundreds of favorites. But I had my own stories to tell and these books evoked enough passion within me that I was able to turn the flurry of thoughts in my head into words on a page that I hope can transport you as well.

From top left to bottom right:
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowlings, The Witch's Daughter by Paula Brackston, Morrigan's Cross by Nora Roberts, Dance Upon the Air by Nora Roberts, Witchling by Yasmine Galenorn, Visions of Magic by Regan Hastings, Divine by Mistake by P. C. Cast, Intertwined by Gena Showalter, Wicked Enchantment by Anya Bast, A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness.

Thank you Tish for sharing your Top Ten Witchy books with us. That is a great list and you have made me want to read a few that I haven't yet.
