Let's Discuss: the recent witch book influx!

Lately I've been thinking a lot about trends in YA. I feel like a few years ago the trend was vampires, and then we had some werewolves going on. But the big thing I've noticed lately is the huge number of witch books that have just been released / are set to be released sometime in fall. 

I gotta just say I have always loved witch books. :L Especially good ones! My all time favorite series is The Witching Hour (Mayfair Witch Chronicles) by Anne Rice. :tup It's an oldie but a goodie. I don't know why but I feel like books about witches have always fascinated me to no end. I feel like I can read witch books forever and never get sick of them (unlike vampire books, I'm kinda getting sick of those lately)... :|| 

So these are some of the books I'm thinking of when considering this recent trend in witch books. I know there are many more, I just listed a few that I thought of right away. Have you read any good witch/wizard books lately? Are you looking forward to any? 

Some of the ones I recently read and really liked:



Shadow of Night || Salt & Storm || Illusions of Fate || House of Ivy & Sorrow || Dark Witch

Witch/Wizard/Magic books I plan to read:

Trial by Fire | Witchfall | Bad Magic | Book of Life | A Wicked Thing | Monstrous | Sweet Unrest



Sweet Unrest


What do you think of trends in YA? My favorite trend is magic and fantasy, specifically witchy books ;) What's your favorite trend, or what do you think should be the next trend (if it were up to you)?
