Books With Magic

Top5Tuesday

Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm. I love a book that has an element of magic, but surprisingly I have not read that many! I am so looking forward to seeing everyone’s lists this week and adding a bunch of books to my TBR. I didn’t mention Harry Potter because DUH!

Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore

33158561

Are we shocked to see Wild Beauty on another one of my Top 5 Tuesday lists? Probably not! If you are looking for a book that does magical realism well than look no further than Wild Beauty.  The magic is subtle but stunning!

The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman

34037113

If I had to pick my favourite book with magic I think I would have to choose The Rules of Magic.  I love these characters and their relationships with one another, but I also really appreciated the magic.  It felt very real and believable.

Macbeth by William Shakespeare

56793

I read Macbeth in high school and it was the one Shakespeare play that I really fell in love with.  Lady Macbeth is one of the most memorable and evil characters of all time. I enjoyed the twist of the story having the three witches. They really add to the twisted and creepy vibe of the play!

Matilda by Roald Dahl

39988

I had to include Matilda on my list! I have so much nostalgia for this story, and I remember wishing I had her magic as a kid.  She is someone that my younger self was able to relate to. I will always have a soft spot for her!

A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

3682

A Great and Terrible Beauty is so atmospheric and is set in a boarding school, which always makes for the perfect backdrop for a story involving magic.  It is the perfect blend of mystery, historical and magical! I loved this book when I read it years ago and I really need to continue on with the series.
