The Familiars is a work of fiction drawn from the facts of the Pendle Witch Trials of 1612, with the vast majority of characters being real people, including the 17-year-old main character and Mistress of Gawthorpe Hall (itself a real place now owned by the National Trust & Lancashire County Council), Fleetwood Shuttleworth née Barton. This is a beautifully written story, and I found myself really caught up in Fleetwood‘s tale. Well worth a read.

TheEllieMo I‘ve seen a few reviews comparing this to the book tagged in this comment. Both novels are based on actual events and so will inevitably have some similarities in timeline, but beyond those factual events, the books are not alike in any way other than both being superb reads. I recommend both. 18h

I enjoyed this one almost as much as Matilda! I think Miranda Richardson‘s narration was spot on and recommend the audio. I especially loved Grandmama. #authoramonth

I have never seen the movie version. Is it worth checking out?

JamieArc I loved the movie as a child (though parts of it terrified me). I saw they are remaking the film - can‘t wait to see it! 2d
Soubhiville Yay, this is a my favorite Dahl! I‘m glad you liked it. I have not seen the movie. 1d
Reggie Yeah, I think you‘d really like the movie. It has Angelica Houston as the head witch. It‘s pretty good. 1d

This was one of my favorite books of the year. It hooks you right from the start and only deepens your attachment further from there. I never wanted to put it down and I seriously can‘t wait for book 2 in September of 2020.

This book is so. good! I honestly couldn't put it down. Lou is such a compelling, funny character and I loved her sarcastic, intelligent voice. And Reid, although sometimes righteous, is a sweetheart and so pure! The romance, the magic, the French-like world and atmosphere pulled me right in and I was hooked. There were a lot of good twists here and the book ends with a bang. I can't wait for the next installment!

#adventrecommends Day 12. I‘ve seen mixed reviews on this. I‘ve seen some love it, some not so much. Personally I really loved it. Would recommend for ages 18+. It‘s marketed as YA but it‘s really more NA

3.5/5⭐ A pic on Instagram hammered my memory of this book I had completely forgotten about. Naturally I immediately checked it out from the library. The narrative doesn't translate as well for an adult audience (not that a kid's book necessarily should). But all the kudos for the art and colors, the idea of witches sleeping in hammocks among the trees, and the idea of witches being utterly terrified of kids in Halloween costumes.
