Books Read Last Week(s)
I've been in such a reading slump! The only book I finished since my last update was Truthwitch by Susan Dennard.
I'm glad I didn't know how hyped this book was going into it; my expectations would have been too high. I read Truthwitch based on the book description, and it was probably the promised friendship of the witches that appealed to me the most.
There were a lot of "witches" in this book. Truthwitch, Bloodwitch, Threadwitch, Wordwitch, Earthwitch, Soilwitch, Firewitch, Airwitch, Voicewitch, Tidewitch, Windwitch, Voidwitch, Poisonwitch, Cursewitch, Glamourwitch... There were so many of them I was kind of "so what" about all of them.
Truthwitch was a fun book, though. There was a lot of action, and I was never bored. I will probably pick up the sequel, but I don't think I'll be suggesting the series to anyone else just yet.
6/10: Good Read
Books Currently Reading
I started reading Best of Apex Magazine edited by Jason Sizemore and Lesley Conner.
The first story in the anthology (Jackalope Wives by Ursula Vernon) was AMAZING, but I started bouncing off the other stories so I'm stepping back a bit to give each story the proper attention.
I'm also reading the first Hap and Leonard book Savage Season by Joe R. Lansdale.
Savage Season is helping to bring me out of my reading slump.
