3 Books to Read if You Liked ‘Wednesday’ on Netflix

Need more “something goes wrong at a boarding school” ambiance with a bit of magic or spookiness thrown in?

Here are five books that give me Wednesday vibes–though caveat, I’m writing this mid-episode 4.

Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson

A mystery, a boarding school, a past and present interlude that’s a bit connected and a bit not. Plus, murder, of course! Everyone in this story has a special talent, not a magical ability, but what’s the difference, really?

The Black Witch by Laurie Forest

I believe this book has a bit of er….concern around some of its racial elements, or what it’s trying to allude to, especially in the later books, but watching Wednesday reminded me of reading the first book in this series, since I never read the rest. It’s a magical boarding school but not just witches and wizards, and a bit dark at times.

Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend

This is a middle grade novel, but it’s got GREAT vibes—a little lighter, and no murder, but still a mystery that puts peoples lives on the line. Big Hogwarts-vibes but better, in my opinion, so if you like the Nevermore aspect of Wednesday, NEVERMOOR is just what you need.

What other books do you recommend to people who enjoyed Wednesday on Netflix?
