I find the premise of this book absolutely fascinating. A woman decides to end her life and ends up in the Midnight Library.

Serpent and Dove
This is another fun premise. Want to know what happens when a witch is set to marry a witch hunter? Yeah, sounds like a disaster. These two are polar opposites. A woman who has run away from her coven, who is a witch, and who’s mother was a witch. She’s a badass and kinda does what she wants. He, on the other hand hates witches and is part of a holy brotherhood of sorts. Shop Now
The Ex Hex
This next book hasn’t even come out yet (Sept 28th) but I keep seeing it pop up and for you fans of romance it sounds like a pretty fun cozy read for this fall season. People are calling this a paranormal romantic comedy. Vivi is a witch and 9 years ago she went through a breakup and coped with it just like anyone probably would with the small addition of hexing her ex. Years later said ex, Rhys, visits the town again and Vivi realizes her hex might have been a little more disastrous than originally intended. There are a series of calamities in their town, we’re talking murderous toys, angry ghosts and talking cats and they have to team up to break the curse. Shop Now
