A TRUTHWITCH UPDATE

A TRUTHWITCH UPDATE

Normally I would just write a review for a book that I'm enjoying, but I decided to spice things up a bit. I'm writing an update for myself and whoever would like to read it. This just may help me stick to my book resolutions this year. I've read every day since December 29th. I'd say so far so good. The more I read, the more I realize that I missed out on some adventures last year. That's okay. I'm back at it now.

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard is a book that I'm reading spontaneously. I picked it off of my shelf and didn't bother to read the synopsis. I told myself that I'm just going to read and that's what I've been doing. At this moment I am one-third of the way through but I am hooked. It's all because of the different kind of witchery happening within the Witchlands and the drama that comes with it.

There are so many types of witches. There are Truthwitches, Bloodwitches, Threadwitches, Windwitches, Tidewitches, Earthwitches, etc. There's a type of witch for everything.  These witches control the elements that pertain to the type of which they are. Iseult is a Threadwitch. Safi is a Truthwitch. Those girls are courageous and their bond is unbreakable. I love how every time they are in danger their bond shines through. They are a team. They are each other's other half in a sense. They are Threadsisters after all.

The witchery in this story isn't the only thing that has me hooked. Truthwitch is a wonderfully written story. The feminism and girl power that is shown on almost every page of the book is absolutely delicious. I'm practically gobbling up the pages. These girls are complete badasses. The story begins with Safi and Iseult in a roadside scandal that may have caused damage to the renegotiation of peace between kingdoms. Highway robbery is a serious thing, especially when the almost victim is someone very important in the Witchlands.

Another element of the story that I am enjoying is the plot. The plot is slightly confusing and I think it's because I may have missed something while reading, but what I do know is that there is a war on its way. Something is brewing between the kingdoms. There's a Bloodwitch on the hunt for Iseult Safi. Iseult might be considered other while Safi has to slip into her Domna role for one night.

With every page I read, I find it harder to put the book down. I read on my way to places. I read in bed. I read when I eat. This book is so good so far. We've all been there. Have you ever loved a book so much you couldn't put it down? Have you ever read a book in one day? Truthwitch is definitely that kind of book. Stay tuned for more.
