The Witch’s Market

by Mingmei Yip

Genre – Non-Fiction
Version for Review – Kindle


This book is not at all what I expected.  It is about a girl who lives in the US but takes some time off work and from her on again off again boyfriend to research witches and write a book about them.  Along her journey she runs into many unexpected people (including witches) who teach her things along the way.  There are lots of opportunities for romance and a new life if she chooses.

I was not expecting a murder mystery or a bit of a thriller.  Yes, I am a wimp, but I actual found this book a little scary and gave me some weird dreams.  She gets herself into some sketchy situations that made me a little anxious.  Yes, this is a fictional story, but it was a little above and beyond attempting to seem realistic in a modern-day society.  Her disappearing to a deserted village for  a month seemed super unrealistic, but it was an integral part of the story and a fun adventure.  I actually had an easier time with her talking to ghosts and spirits than living in a strange man’s castle!

I really enjoyed this story and would recommend it to others as well.  If you like mysteries, witches, and those types of books you may like this book.  Although not a lot about witches in a traditional sense with spells and magic, it does have mentions of them and a lot about being a shamaness or different cultures versions of a witch.

    This book actually sounds really interesting! I haven’t had the time to read in such a long time, and I miss getting lost in a good book. Hopefully I’ll have some down time soon, and I’ll definitely check out this book!

    Sounds…interesting! I like different books, but I’ve also gotten weird dreams from some of them. It just depends on what it’s about. I’ve been reading Into the Dark by Alison Gaylin. It’s the 2nd one in a series. Pretty good!

      I’ve never heard of that but will have to check it out. I get weird dreams too with books, a little too intense sometimes 🙂
