Hey there! Six for Sunday is a meme hosted by Steph at A Little But a Lot. This month, the focus is on The Viper-inspired ones, and this week’s topic is Magical Books.
To tell the truth I was a little bit perplexed by this week’s topic as there are so many magical books, especially in the fantasy genre. So I decided to concentrate on ones I’ve read and enjoyed a lot, and believe they have a great magical system. Let’s start!
The Last Magician has one of the most intriguing and complex magical system’s I’ve encountered in a fantasy book. It uses science and magic at the same time, including time traveling and doomed prophecies. And overall, it’s such an engaging read!
The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is a book with unique magical mystery. really, I’d broken my mind trying to solve it while reading. And the outcome did not disappoint me.
It’s your classical Sabrina, little witch style story but such an engaging one! I read it years ago but I still fondly remember it and wouldn’t mind to be a student is a similar School for Witches *wink*
Howl’s Moving Castle is one of my favorites magical stories. What I love about it that apart from complex and amazing magical system, this book also contains a lot of funny situations the characters find themselves in. What can be better than magic and fun!
Sorcery of Thorns reminds me of Howl’s Moving Castle but it has its own unique magical system which involves books. My inner bookworm was delighted the whole time I was reading this book.
The Diviners are not only unique because of their magical system but because they are quite a dark, haunting story. I was afraid to read some passages at night but, at the same time, couldn’t resist the story’s magical pull.
These are by far not all of the amazing books with unique and engaging magical systems that I’ve read and enjoyed. But the first six that came to mind, so, in a way, they are more special than others. What do you think about this list? What are your lucky six?
