I have seen this happen several times with the witch novels. Sometimes the setting is similar, other times it is the family structure, or the main character’s job. But what I like to remember is that before trying to sabotage someone’s novel by claiming they’re copying someone else’s ideas, I like to remember that it takes hundreds of hours to write a book. Give the writer the benefit of the doubt and read the two books for yourself before casting judgement.
To help with picking the right series for you to read, I’m going to compare about forty different series that I have read over the past few years. The major points of comparison that I am going to focus on are the setting, the main character’s job, their family, bff, and love interest.
Just a warning, this may take sometime to put all together.
