✨Witchlands Series Reread✨

windwitch

Windwitch still maintains the very fast pace that Truthwitch set but it was just that little bit less exciting. The majority of the book is just Safi and Iseult moving further and further away from each other and though they are striving to reunite their circumstances just keep pushing them apart. There is also a good chunck of the book where they are both just travelling through areas, and though we get to see more of the world it’s not very interesting. I still don’t really trust Vaness and though Safi has decided to trust her I can’t help but think that she isn’t going to hold up her side of the bargain. The addition of Vivia’s perspective added another layer of depth to the storyline and was a way to almost challenge Merik’s very one sided view of his sister and what she is doing for their people. Aeduan is still my favourite of all of these characters and I really enjoyed how multifaceted he is. This book overall was entertaining and quick to read, I do feel like it isn’t as thrilling as the first book but it’s definitely building upon the foundation that was laid in Truthwitch and we are discovering so much more about this world and the magic.

Quarterly Reading Recommendation

I can’t believe it’s already been another three months since my last recommendation post! This is going to be my second instalment for 2021 and this month I only picked 5 books to list since I didn’t read as much during those three months and these were the only books I wanted to recommend. If you want to check out my first quarterly reading recommendations click HERE!

My recommendations for April – May – June are:

House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland

The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones

Shadowcaster by Cinda Williams Chima

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson

June Wrap Up

I’m definitely proud of what I was able to finish this month and happy with all the books I chose! Some that have been on my TBR for quite a while now and a couple of newer releases so a pretty well rounded bunch. They were all really great books and I am excited to finally be getting out of my reading slump!

✨Witchlands Series Reread✨

I am so very behind on my reread of this series but I have just completed the first book Truthwitch today which is actually the release day for Witchshadow coincidentally. I was supposed to have already finished and reread the series so I can pick up Witchshadow straight away but alas that did not occur. I did however, have such a fun time being back in this world and reunited with Iseult and Safi again. Similar to my first reading experience with this book it just jumps straight into the action and it takes me a little while to be accustomed to the writing style. I love the build up of the world and learning about the different realms and the truce. The differences between the different nations and how delicate the peace truce is and just how everyone is waiting for it to dissolve. There are a lot of characters and titles thrown at us as well which again took me a while to wrap my head around again as it’s been a while since I read this series. I highly enjoyed my reread though and I am definitely going to try and continue on with Windwitch as soon as possible!

9. Do you tend to agree or disagree with GR average rating and do you use GR as a guide for books you want to read?

I would say overall absolutely.. the majority of my rating coincide with the average! I will typically look to see what the average rating is before I start a book, but it doesn’t sway my opinions at all.
