    Looking for...

    Does anyone have book suggestions about witches and/or the Salem witch trials? Fiction, historical fiction, or non-fiction suggestions are all welcome!

    I don't know if you are looking for more realizing stuff, but the heroine and protagonist in the All Souls Trilogy is a Witch, as are some of the other characters. There are also vampires and demons.

    I've had the first book of the Mortal Instruments series on my Kindle, waiting to be chosen as my next read, for quite some time. I can't personally recommend them, but they look interesting.

    And a couple lists or witch books from Goodreads

    I just visited Salem last weekend!

    Ummm... This may be an obvious one but the Crucible and The House of the Seven Gables (I haven't read it yet but we took the house tour so now I really want to read it)

    ETA: I read Tituba a long time ago. She was a slave and one of the first people to be accused of witchcraft in Salem.

    I just finished a book about this! It's called "The Devil in Massachusetts"

    Great book. It's a thick read, because it's a historical account of the trials, but it's worth the read. It's written like a historical fiction, but it's nonfiction.

    ETA: If you're interested in this, I would also suggest looking for books about the Pendle Witches in England.

    Long post but here is a romance trilogy fiction of course that is tied into the Salem witch trials.

    Meredith Allard’s beloved best selling paranormal/historical Loving Husband Trilogy is now available together for the first time, with bonus material about the series. The collection includes the full texts of Her Dear & Loving Husband, Her Loving Husband’s Curse, and Her Loving Husband’s Return, plus a Q&A with Meredith Allard, series inspirations, and discussion questions. The Loving Husband Trilogy Box Set will please devoted James and Sarah Wentworth fans as well as fans new to the series.

    Book One: Her Dear & Loving Husband
    James Wentworth has a secret. He lives quietly in Salem, Massachusetts, making few ties with anyone. One night his private world is turned upside down when he meets Sarah Alexander, a dead ringer for his wife, Elizabeth. Though it has been years since Elizabeth's death, James cannot move on.

    Sarah also has a secret. She is haunted by nightmares about the Salem Witch Trials, and every night she is awakened by visions of hangings, being arrested, and dying in jail. Despite the obstacles of their secrets, James and Sarah fall in love. As James comes to terms with his feelings for Sarah, he must dodge accusations from a reporter desperate to prove that James is not who, or what, he seems to be. Soon James and Sarah piece their stories together and discover a mystery that may bind them in ways they never imagined. Do vampires and witches live in Salem? Will James make the ultimate sacrifice to protect Sarah and prevent a new hunt from bringing hysteria to Salem again?

    Book Two: Her Loving Husband’s Curse
    How far will you go to protect the one you love?

    Finally, after many long and lonely years, vampire James Wentworth's life is falling into place. Together with his wife, Sarah, the only woman he has ever loved, he has found the meaning behind her nightmares about the Salem Witch Trials, and now they are rebuilding the life they began together so long ago.

    But the past is never far behind for the Wentworths. While Sarah is haunted by new visions, now about the baby she carried over three hundred years before, James is confronted with painful memories from his time with the Cherokee on the Trail of Tears. Through it all, the persistent reporter Kenneth Hempel reappears, still determined to prove that the undead walk the earth. If Hempel succeeds in his quest, James and Sarah will suffer. Will the curse of the vampire prevent James and Sarah from living their happily ever after?

    Book Three: Her Loving Husband’s Return
    What would you do to return to the only one you have ever loved?

    Vampire James Wentworth’s secret is no longer a secret, and now he and his beloved wife, Sarah, have been separated. While suffering his own internment, James is reminded of his time with Japanese-Americans in the Manzanar Relocation Camp during World War II, and he cannot allow the past to repeat itself. With the help of his friends—Chandresh, Jocelyn, Timothy, even the irreverent Geoffrey—James learns what it means to return, and he is determined to return to his Sarah no matter the challenges—or the consequences. In the end, it may be up to Olivia, the most powerful of witches, to grant James’s most fervent wish. Will James and Sarah be reunited once and for all despite the madness surrounding them?
