January 19 | Currently Reading

I'm posting my update late this week; it was a really hectic weekend.

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.

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.

  1. Hmm sure are a lot of witches! I think I'd get confused by them all.

    1. I'm not even sure how relevant they all were, but they were everywhere.

  2. Too many witches! LOL I've been wondering how this would be given the hype.

  4. I haven't even heard of TruthWitch. Not that that says anything. I'm just out of it I guess.

    1. From what I gather it was the big book of BEA last year.

  5. I agree with your assessment of Truthwitch. I myself had mixed feelings with it, but on the whole I had a good time and will be most likely checking out the sequel.

  6. That is a lot of witches!! Lol. I saw that book being given away for free and I meant to grab it and didn't! Now I am bummed I didn't download it. It sounds interesting, even with all the witches going on.

    1. Yeah, it was a whole lotta witches, but my real complaint about that was the fact that it made the main characters less special to me since so many others were witches, too.
