A fun graphic novel about three witches on a road trip to recover their stolen magical objects- crystals, an orb, a planchette, spices, and an invoking ritual. When they catch up with the culprit - an ex-boyfriend of one of the witches- they realize that the true object of desire is something one of the witches brings with her.
I ADORE this graphic novel soooo much! One of my favorite reads this year! Someone breaks into the home of three young women and steals their stuff. Too bad the women are witches! Now they‘re on the hunt for their stuff and the one who robbed them. Basically it‘s a witchy road trip and I love it 😁 The art is gorgeous, the characters are fantastic and I am heartbroken that there aren‘t more volumes! Well worth the read, will definitely reread it.
This was a really fun story. A great witch story, a great friendship story, a great road trip story. Just so much fun all the way through. Also some killer outfits during the story too.
Thanks @callielafleur for all the awesome giveaways! I would love to win #ClearingtheShelves1
I recently read the Saga and Paper Girl series and I‘m starting Amulet and Runaways - Lumberjanes was my graphic novel gateway drug. They‘ve all been so freaking awesome and I am excited to read more after dialiking the genre for so long. 😊
I don't even know how to articulate how much it means to me to see an adult character in fiction who just casually doesn't drink. (And who isn't framed as weak for doing so). No irritating oh-but-why moment - just casual, no-big-deal sobriety.
(And only the bad guys are ever kind of jerks about it. Nobody else bats an eye).

Tbh I didn't love love this like I thought I would but it was very good! I felt a bit puzzled as to why I wasn't enamored with it, since it basically has everything that I love: witches, queers, road trips, humour and drama mix, great art (Megan Levens!). It felt very Buffy-esque. But something about the characters and maybe plot didn't wow me. I think both were just a bit underdeveloped.
Couldn't resist taking this out on my shift at the library today! Witches on a road trip with queer characters? Yes please. I also realized that one of the artists is one of the people who did Buffy season 10 that I've been really into! #QueerBooks #Comics
Had a mini graphic novel readathon this evening! Three quick reviews:
Cici's Journal: middle grade story of an aspiring author. Beautiful art but odd pacing/narration took me out of the story.
Maria and Me: slice of life of author and his daughter, who has autism. Heartfelt but I found the story too slight to be satisfying.
Spell On Wheels: my fave. Three young witches solve a mystery and reclaim their stolen stuff.
Blurry picture, sorry! This was a cute roadtrip story with witches and the pictured satyr dude later on. The redhead's ex steals some magical items in a quest to gain his own magic and get revenge, but we all know how that goes! I'd like to see where next these ladies go. Also, there's a witch with technology magic, which I'd really like to have 😆
Ohai, Litsy. How is your #readathon going? Currently I am camped out in a decommissioned Norwegian train car, which lacks only a tea kettle and a few cats to be the perfect reading space.
Witches on a road trip! Need I say more? I love the emphasis on female friendship because, way too often, females are pitted against each other (*cough* *cough* AHS: Coven). So it's nice to see a group of female witches getting along and working together.
Ahh Spell on Wheels got delivered yesterday! Woooooooop woop! I love @kateleth and I am so excited to read this! Witches on a road trip/mission? Heck yes!!
What's your favorite road trip destination? Or your dream one? I like going down the coast (from WA to CA!) There are so many cute little towns and tourist traps! And elephant seals!
