The Okay Witch
The Okay Witch | Emma Steinkellner
Sabrina the Teenage Witch meets Roller Girl in this hilarious, one-of-a-kind graphic novel about a half-witch who has just discovered the truth about herself, her family, and her town and is doing her best to survive middle school now that she knows everything! Magic is harder than it looks. Thirteen-year-old Moth Hush loves all things witchy. But shes about to discover that witches arent just the stuff of movies, books, and spooky stories. When some eighth-grade bullies try to ruin her Halloween, something really strange happens. It turns out that Founders Bluff, Massachusetts, has a centuries-old history of witch drama. And, surprise: Moths family is at the center of it all! When Moths new powers show up, things get totally out-of-control. She meets a talking cat, falls into an enchanted diary, and unlocks a hidden witch world. Secrets surface from generations past as Moth unravels the complicated legacy at the heart of her town, her family, and herself. In this spellbinding graphic novel debut, Emma Steinkellner spins a story packed with humor and heart about the weird and wonderful adventures of a witch-in-progress.

#BookReport time!

I finished The Okay Witch earlier this week and thought it was a very cute middle grade graphic novel. The illustrative style was unique and the story itself although in need of development, emphasized family, legacy, and acceptance.

The Book of Essie is #currentlyinprogress and through multiple points of view, explores teen pregnancy, fame, reality television, and religion. TW for possible sexual violence.

Cinfhen I love your graphics! Excellent report ♥️ 3mo
Librariana @Cinfhen - I love that you've provided us with a fantastic weekly activity that definitely helps me hold myself accountable and I thank you for that! I definitely get overly eager to post like 20 different books because I want to #readallthethings at the same time! 3mo
Cinfhen I GET THAT!!!!! 3mo

Moth is 13 years-old and into everything witchy when she finds out that she is actually a witch. Her mother, also a witch, chose a non-magical life and never told Moth. Moth has to learn about her family history, their ties to the town she lives in, and how to use her powers. This is a cute graphic novel. Moth is adorable and I love the friendship that develops with Charlie. I also love the cat. #screamathon

I really enjoyed this book. It's about a girl who finds out she is a witch and her mother has been hiding this information from her. Great illustrations. I enjoyed reading about the past with her grandmother and even the cat (a.k.a Mr. Laszlo). All in all a really great read and a cute ending!

This was a sweet graphic novel about a young witch finding her powers. Some Salem witch trial parallels. Lots of obstacles having to do with family and belonging. Great for a fall read!

I am about to go to bed, but considering how busy today was I would say this is a pretty strong start (a little over 2 hours...although I lost my first timer so I hope I can still count that time even though I don‘t have official record).

3 graphic novels completed. 1 novel in progress.
31 points total from the 3 books pictured (2 theme, 1 Halloween). Also marking off pumpkin for #ScaryScavengerHunt #TeamStoker #Scarathlon #24b4Monday

Thought I'd zero in on and share my #currentlyreading and #TBR #graphicnovel adventures 😊💜📚

The Backstagers is one I've had on my TBR for a minute and I finally placed a hold on it today. Hotel Dare I found out about after reading The Avant-Guards.

I'm all kinds of giddy and excited about these reads!

The ending Of the story, and the development of the antagonist, seemed a little rushed. But there was so much joy and charm in this book.

It doesn't even feel like fall where I am yet (still in the 90s) but it's never too early to get in the Halloween spirit I guess? 😂

A cute middle grade comic about Moth, a thirteen year old girl, who discovers she's a witch after accidentally casting a spell on two of her bullies. But her mom doesn't want her doing magic-- and she won't say why. With the help of a talking cat possessed by the ghost of a family friend and her mom's old diary, Moth uncovers the truth about her mother's past and her complicated relationship with magic. Cute and perfect for a fun Halloween read!

4 🌟
This was a really fun graphic novel about a girl who has never quite fit in, learning she is so much more than she ever thought...she‘s a witch. This is both a blessing and a curse, as there is a history of terror in her community, and people always thought of witches as a bad thing, or at least something to be laughed at. But Moth Hush will have to find a happy medium between the past and the future to truly have the life she wants.

Thanks NetGalley and Simon and Schuster Children‘s Publishing for this ARC!

Hush learns all about becoming a witch, her family‘s history, and her town‘s legacy. What she does about it all is very interesting and makes for a great read. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves magic, friendship, and a good laugh! This book provides it all.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
