Here’s What Book You Should Read Based on Your Favorite Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Character


Raise your hand if you, like us, are now obsessed with Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.



Raise your hand if you, like us, binged the whole series over the weekend and now have to wait way too long for the next season.


It’s okay, this is a safe, witchy space, and we all worship at the altar of Netflix.

Thankfully, we all have books to tide us over until we get more episodes–ones we think that the characters themselves would love too.



Sabrina Spellman/Undead Girl Gang by Lily Anderson

Screen Shot 2018-11-02 at 2.25.10 PM

Bringing the dead back to life? Scary. Living in a world without your best friend? Scarier. Sabrina would totally get why teen Wiccan Mila Flores brings her best friend–and two other classmates–back from the dead, accidentally creating her own vigilante girl gang.


Hilda Spellman/Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moira Fowley-Doyle

Screen Shot 2018-11-02 at 2.27.03 PM


A tattered spellbook might be the key to discovering things that have been lost–but what if it leads to things that were never meant to be found? Hilda and her many secrets agree.


Zelda Spellman/The Merciless by Danielle Vega

Screen Shot 2018-11-02 at 2.28.30 PM


When Sofia Flores moves to a new school, she finds that her new friends bring the term “mean girl” to a whole new level when they believe a classmate has been possessed by Satan. While Zelda may not jive with their anti-Satan motive, anyone who would kill their sister for annoying her would probably appreciate their intensity.


Ambrose Spellman/Give the Dark My Love by Beth Revis

Screen Shot 2018-11-02 at 2.29.55 PM


With a deadly plague sweeping the island, Nedra turns to darker magic, including necromancy, the practice of raising the dead…you know, Ambrose’s specialty.


Harvey Kinkle/The Sacrifice Box by Martin Stewart

Screen Shot 2018-11-02 at 2.31.07 PM


As children, five friends sealed childhood treasures in a box and vowed never to go back on their sacrifices. Four years later, someone broke the rules of the box, and now everyone has to pay. These friends, much like poor Harvey, don’t know what they’re in for.


Roz Walker/Blood Water Paint by Joy McCullough

Screen Shot 2018-11-02 at 2.33.14 PM


Artemisia Gentileschi was an Italian painter in the 1600s. Roz Walker is a student at Greendale in present times. Artemisia Gentileschi and Roz Walker have one thing in common: they’re both tired of men taking what they want from women, and are ready to show the world what women can do.


Susie Putnam/The Brilliant Death by Amy Rose Capetta

Screen Shot 2018-11-02 at 2.34.44 PM


With all the garbage that’s happened to Susie recently, she could use a good fantasy novel to escape into–why not dive into a world full of Italian folklore and magical gender exploration?


Prudence Night/An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

Screen Shot 2018-11-02 at 2.35.59 PM


Prudence and our girl Helene might as well get matching tattoos that say “You say ‘ruthless’ like it’s a bad thing.”


Salem Saberhagen/There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins  

Screen Shot 2018-11-02 at 2.38.05 PM


Students at Osborne High are being murdered one by one, and as the terror grows closer and the hunt intensifies for the killer, dark secrets among them must be confronted. Sounds like a job for feline danger alarm Salem!

Bonus: you’ll be seeing this one pop up on Netflix in the near future, so you’ll be able to watch it back-to-back with Chilling Adventures of Sabrina without even having to change apps.


For those of you who can’t choose…


Slasher Girls and Monster Boys edited by April Genevieve Tucholke
