5 Novels to Celebrate the “Charmed” Reboot

Will Rhino is a firm believer that no bedroom is complete without a stack of books that is completely ignored when a friend hands you something “you just have to read.” He loves contemporary fiction or anything featuring a strong cast of characters and multiple points of view. He’s probably on a patio, eating and laughing with his friends.

When Charmed debuted in 1998, it was an instant success. Since then, it has only gained popularity. A campy drama featuring sister witches? How could it not be a beloved classic! The new TV series reboot already has the internet whipped into a frenzy. If you’re as excited as we are, here are five books you’ll want to read.


Black Dog Summer
by Miranda Sherry
A murdered mother watches from the afterlife as her teen daughter, Gigi, is left to recover from the trauma. When Gigi moves in with her family in South Africa and discovers that they have an obsession with magic, she begins to seek help from a local witch doctor who communicates with the dead. A perfect mix of American Horror Story with THE LOVELY BONES.

The Seven Sisters
by Lucinda Riley
While there isn't much magic in the rich, gripping Seven Sisters series, author Lucinda Riley opts instead to explore complex sister relationships. In this first book of the series, the titular sisters—all of whom were adopted as babies—are summoned to their childhood home following their father's sudden death, and each is provided with a clue to help her discover her heritage. The series spans centuries to create a truly sweeping saga.

Three Dark Crowns
by Kendare Blake
This list wouldn't be complete without a little bit of corny camp. THREE DARK CROWNS definitely skews younger, but that doesn't make it any less taut, entertaining, and fun—and if that isn't how you described Charmed, then no one can help you. Where THREE DARK CROWNS differs is that, instead of being allies, the three sister witches are born to compete with each other to ascend to the throne.
