Insatiable - Meg Cabot Witches Abroad - Terry Pratchett

Today's additions are "read by candlelight or flashlight" - for which I'm putting down my  latest phone book, and "witches" for which I was inspired to reread Witches Abroad.

 

One of these books was wonderful and worth the reread.  The other all of the characters were insufferable, flimsy, and too stupid to live.  (Hint: the one I liked was Witches Abroad)

 

 

Read by Candlelight or flashlight: Insatiable / Meg Cabot

Phone is close enough, right?  Also eff this book.

 

Magical Realism:

 

Witches: Witches Abroad / Terry Pratchett
Pratchett had a gift for turning his anger into hilarious satire.

Black Cat: Gone with the Witch / Annette Blair

Marshmallowy and utterly predictable romance, with a stunning array of ridiculous and creative sexual metaphors.

Read with (BookLikes) Friends: The Yellow Wallpaper / Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Vampires vs. Werewolves: Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires / Molly Harper

Has werewolves and vampires, but they affectionately snark each other rather than than have some sort of long standing feud.

 

Supernatural: A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses / Molly Harper

Not Harper's best, but snarky, cute fun.

 

Classic horror:

 

Pumpkin: The Cottage on Pumpkin and Vine / Kate Angell, Jennifer Dawson, Sharla Lovelace

Sweet and enjoyable contemporary romance.  Three authors writing stories that revolve around a single location.
