I just finished Bloodwitch and I am all up in my feels again! The majority of the first half I had a vague idea of what was happening and the direction the book was going but I completely forgot the second half of this book as it’s been over 2 years now that I read it. I loved that we get so much more of Aeduan and his point of view and we learn more about his background. Him finding out who his father was and then the flashbacks to his childhood and how out of control of his powers he was and the subsequent ostracization. Seeing him slowly fall in love with Iseult is just so precious, trying to deny his feelings because he believes he actually can’t feel because he is this monster. Then coming to the realisation and accepting his feelings, telling Iseult and then being dragged apart again. One thing I have found about this book was that it was a little hard to visualise what was happening at the end. It was all a little frantic and rushed and I couldn’t picture the setting at all and how the doors in the mountain was set up. Where exactly the standoff with Merik and the Fury was taking place at and how they ended up there in the first place. I was taking my time and reading quite slowly to try and take everything in but I was still just that little bit confused. Other than that I love the progression of all of the character and where they have ended up and I am sooo excited to finally be able to dive into Witchshadow fresh and updated.
I have picked the next series I am going to be rereading in anticipation of it’s latest release and that is the Witchlands Series by Susan Dennard. It’s been 2 years now since I first binged this series and I am in desperate need of a recap as I have pretty much forgotten all the finer details of the plot and I would like to be fresh and up to date before Witchshadow is released in June! I love this series and I am excited to get stuck back in!
This is my second installment of my quarterly reading recommendations for 2019. Every 3 months I will be looking over all the books I’ve read in that time and picking out my top 10 favourites. Then at the end of the year I will compile my lists and pick my top 10 overall from the books I’ve selected where I will be going a little more in depth!

So in no particular order my reading recommendations for April-May-June are:
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!
