April Wrap Up

I actually had a great reading month… I’m not quite sure how it happened but I deviated from my original TBR and actually read a lot more books than I was originally planning too and I’m not mad at it! I kind of listened a little more to my mood this month and read what I felt like reading instead of just solely sticking to my TBR and I feel like that approach really enabled me to read a lot more!

Bloodwitch Review

*Definite Spoilers*

51uwijmx-plI loved this!

The third novel in the Witchlands series is getting even more adventurous and exciting! I will say I am now glad I read Sightwitch and got more of an insight and background to the story as everything is now really syncing up and coming together in the plot.

I have to say I do stan Iseult and Aeduan. I love the hate to love trope so much and it’s very much prevalent over the course of the books with these two. I loved seeing the slow progression of their relationship build and how they slowly come to trust and understand each other. And let me just say the way they reunite had me on the edge of my seat, I couldn’t cope for a minute there.

I really didn’t pay much attention to Aeduan in the other books. I appreciated his character and I was intrigued by him, but I didn’t really think he mattered or was as integral to the story as he is now.  I figured since the name of this book was Bloodwitch that he would be more of a prominent plot line and he definitely did in this book! His arc over the course of the series has been wonderful to read; especially since we get so much more of his backstory.  In this book in particular I have really started to get more invested in his character and I can’t wait to see what he does next!

The whole book is just super immersive. I found myself really lost in the story and appreciating every character and their journey. Everything is really starting to come to a head and we are getting more and more interactions between all of the main protagonists who were otherwise on different sides of the continent through the sporadic use of the doors to connect and transport the characters which I thought was very effective.

I was very satisfied with this book. I honestly had no idea where Susan Dennard was going to take the story next and throughout the whole reading experience I was very much entertained and that really propelled me to continue to read. The action is getting so much more intense and story lines are colliding and I can’t wait for the next book!

⭐️5/5 I need to know what happens next!

April TBR

This month I’m focusing on continuing on in the series I’ve started and also getting into more of the books that I have had on my TBR for a while now! Super excited to be finally getting to some of these books and I look forward to a great reading month! 🙂
