What are you currently reading?
I’m about 100 pages through with the February Hype or Like Friday BOTM, at the time that I’m writing this. It’s fairly interesting so far and entertaining. However, I am really struggling trying to figure out all of the different witches and how they’re connected, what they do, etc. I think Dennard did not do a very good job laying that out for readers. I’m also not really understanding this world very well and could use some clarification and background information on it. Maybe more will be explained as I go on?
In a continent on the edge of war, two witches hold its fate in their hands.
Young witches Safiya and Iseult have a habit of finding trouble. After clashing with a powerful Guildmaster and his ruthless Bloodwitch bodyguard, the friends are forced to flee their home.
Safi must avoid capture at all costs as she’s a rare Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lies. Many would kill for her magic, so Safi must keep it hidden – lest she be used in the struggle between empires. And Iseult’s true powers are hidden even from herself.
In a chance encounter at Court, Safi meets Prince Merik and makes him a reluctant ally. However, his help may not slow down the Bloodwitch now hot on the girls’ heels. All Safi and Iseult want is their freedom, but danger lies ahead. With war coming, treaties breaking and a magical contagion sweeping the land, the friends will have to fight emperors and mercenaries alike. For some will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.
What did you recently finish reading?
While all of the hype was real about Caraval (seriously, amazing!), I think it fell a little flat for Blood for Blood. It was still a really good book, but just not as great as what I was expecting. I think it’s strongest point was the writing – Graudin is a fabulous writer!
What do you think you’ll read next?
- Roseblood by A.G. Howard – as voted on by my Twitter friends!
- A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes, #2) by Sabaa Tahir
I’m almost positive that I’ll finish these two up before the end of the month, but if not then this will be the last of my February TBR!
