You know what October means! Tis the season of the witches! They are coming out in full force.

I’ve always had a soft spot for books about witches. I aspired to be one when I was little and loved imagining that I had magical powers, zapping things into existence. How perfect is it that I received a few witch books? Just in time for the Halloween.

These are the three witch books I recently received from publishers!

The Dark Lord Clementine by Sarah Jean Horwitz

Dastardly deeds aren’t exactly the first things that come to mind when one hears the name “Clementine,” but as the sole heir of the infamous Dark Lord Elithor, twelve-year-old Clementine Morcerous has been groomed since birth to be the best (worst?) Evil Overlord she can be. But everything changes the day the Dark Lord Elithor is cursed by a mysterious rival.

Now, Clementine must not only search for a way to break the curse, but also take on the full responsibilities of the Dark Lord. As Clementine forms her first friendships, discovers more about her own magic than she ever dared to explore, and is called upon to break her father’s code of good and evil, she starts to question the very life she’s been fighting for. What if the Dark Lord Clementine doesn’t want to be dark after all?

Why would I want to read The Dark Lord Clementine? Doesn’t every reader get joy reading about a girl becoming an Evil Overlord?

When I read “dastardly deeds” and “Evil Overlord,” I was immediately convinced that The Dark Lord Clementine is gonna be my type of book. I love anything that’s dark and humorous, and when I peeked into this book, it’s got the clever and charming darkness befitting for young readers.

Will other readers enjoy this? Who wouldn’t love reading about Evil Overlords? Especially for all those aspiring Evil Overlords out there. It’ll be really charming.
