“I put a spell on you and now you’re mine!” “Double, double, toil, and trouble!” Microwave some popcorn and pop in a film. I love witchy goodness of the comfort variety, whether it’s Bette Midler siphoning off the life force of Salem’s children, the Olsen twins freeing Cloris Leachman from her evil witchy twin, or Debbie Reynolds watching over her family in the TV movie series “Halloween Town”. Heartwarming and fun magical adventures are some of my favorite, go-to staycations. There’s a dash of quirky, a handful (or two) of sexy, and a lot of fun.
I found a few books that seem to fit the bill. Since I haven’t yet read these (only sample chapters), I can’t fully vouch for them. If you have any suggestions, please let me know in the comment section below. After you out check out these series, why not pitch cozy queer witch movie ideas to Hallmark. The one I borrowed via my library Hoopla account, You Cast a Spell on Me, seemed to have everything but F/F. Please and thank you in advance!
Jane Madison isn’t queer, but I adore this Washington D.C.-based specialty reference librarian. She foams milk for lattes and researches obscure data from primary sources at the Peabridge Library. On one fateful day, she discovers witchy powers, a familiar, and more problems than her budget allows. And I just found out that there is a road trip novella, Magic and Mayhem: Nice Witches Don’t Swear by Mindy Klasky! Hells yeah! It’s been ten years since I went on a road trip, so this is a perfect read for my upcoming trip. Pack it up and boost off!
