So, signing up for the Reading Quest challenge made me remember that I’ve been severely slacking in my year long challenges. So here’s a post that gives a quick update on what I’ve been able to accomplish so far this year.
On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a “witchery,” a magical skill that sets them apart from others.
In the Witchlands, there are almost as many types of magic as there are ways to get in trouble—as two desperate young women know all too well.
Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It’s a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially amongst the nobility to which Safi was born. So Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires.
Iseult, a Threadwitch, can see the invisible ties that bind and entangle the lives around her—but she cannot see the bonds that touch her own heart. Her unlikely friendship with Safi has taken her from life as an outcast into one of reckless adventure, where she is a cool, wary balance to Safi’s hotheaded impulsiveness.
Safi and Iseult just want to be free to live their own lives, but war is coming to the Witchlands. With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and ship’s captain) and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge, the friends must fight emperors, princes, and mercenaries alike, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.
As January comes to a close, I’ve reevaluated my sign-up post and made some decisions regarding the titles there and my current reading interests, which like to change on me all the time. To that end, here are the titles I’ve removed, added, and started reading. There is also a section for titles that I finished reading but haven’t reviewed. It is likely that I’ll share similar posts periodically as things come up and get moved around.
Another reading challenge I wanted to do in 2017 is Beat the Backlist, mostly because the last couple of years, I’ve focused on new releases and neglected a lot of my older TBR. So this year, I plan to use this challenge for two main things.
- FINISH or continue series that are been done for over a year now
- START series that I own several books in
We’ll see how this goes. Some of the series are longer than others, so if I happen to become obsessed, it might push back one or two others. I’m really hoping to have fun with this and get more of these older series, that I’ve been ignoring, off my TBR list. Or at least part of each series 🙂
