My Favorite YA Witch Book

Over the next few weeks, I thought I’d share some of my favorite books with you. But these aren’t just any books, they’re monster books. Each day I’ll pick a monster-of-choice and tell you my favorite book featuring said monster. These posts were inspired by Katytastic’s “Creature of the Night Book Tag.”

The first monster on the list is WITCH. And for this particular monster, I chose…

Publication Date: August, 2007
Hardcover, 262 pages, Harper Teen
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

It's not easy being Jinx.

The only thing Jean Honeychurch hates more than her boring name (not Jean Marie, or Jeanette, just...Jean) is her all-too-appropriate nickname, Jinx. Misfortune seems to follow her everywhere she goes—which is why she's thrilled to be moving in with her aunt and uncle in New York City. Maybe when she's halfway across the country, Jinx can finally outrun her bad luck. Or at least escape the havoc she's caused back in her small hometown.

But trouble has definitely followed Jinx to New York. And it's causing big problems for her cousin Tory, who is not happy to have the family black sheep around. Beautiful, glamorous Tory is hiding a dangerous secret—one that she's sure Jinx is going to reveal.
Jinx is beginning to realize it isn't just bad luck she's been running from. It's something far more sinister...and the curse Jinx has lived under since the day she was born might just be the only thing that can save her life.

My Reasons

I almost forgot about this book. I’m really glad that I didn’t, because besides Harry Potter, this is one of the best witch books I’ve read. It’s cute, funny, yet remarkably real at the same time.

What’s your favorite witch book?
