Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday (aka: WoW) is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, spotlighting releases we are waiting for eagerly.

This Week’s Victim Pick….

WoW [122]Sightwitch by Susan Dennard
Series: The Witchlands #0.5
Published by Tor Teen on February 13th 2018
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy
Pages: 208
Goodreads
Series Rating: five-stars
Buy on AmazonBarnes & NobleThe Book Depository

Set a year before Truthwitch, Sightwitch follows Ryber Fortiza, the last Sightwitch Sister as she treks deep underground to rescue her missing best friend. While there, she encounters a young Nubrevnan named Kullen Ikray, who has no memory of who he is or how he wound up inside the mountain. As the two journey ever deeper in search of answers, and as they brave one close call after another, a tentative friendship forms between them—one that might one day grow into something more.

Sightwitch is told through Ryber’s journal entries and her sketches, as well as through supplementary materials (such as other journals, pieces of songs, clippings from history books, flashbacks, etc.). Though meant as a companion novella, this story serves as a set up to Bloodwitch as well as an expansion of the world.

My Thoughts

So, does it really surprise anyone that Sightwitch would be on one of my Waiting on Wednesday posts?! I mean it’s Susan freaking Dennard for crying out loud. I am always begging for more of her books! I still have to catch up on the series, but I am SUPER stoked about this one!!!!

And now…over to you: what book are you waiting to release? Link me up and I’ll try my best to drop by! 🙂

Blog Tour: To Catch A Killer [Guest Post & Giveaway!]To Catch a Killer by Sheryl Scarborough

Erin Blake has one of those names. A name that, like Natalee Holloway or Elizabeth Smart, is inextricably linked to a grisly crime. As a toddler, Erin survived for three days alongside the corpse of her murdered mother, and the case—which remains unsolved—fascinated a nation. Her father's identity unknown, Erin was taken in by her mother's best friend and has become a relatively normal teen in spite of the looming questions about her past.
Fourteen years later, Erin is once again at the center of a brutal homicide when she finds the body of her biology teacher. When questioned by the police, Erin tells almost the whole truth, but never voices her suspicions that her mother's killer has struck again in order to protect the casework she's secretly doing on her own.
Inspired by her uncle, an FBI agent, Erin has ramped up her forensic hobby into a full-blown cold-case investigation. This new murder makes her certain she's close to the truth, but when all the evidence starts to point the authorities straight to Erin, she turns to her longtime crush (and fellow suspect) Journey Michaels to help her crack the case before it's too late.

What are your writing must haves?

Well, writing for me begins with a computer or an iPad with add-on keyboard. I wouldn’t even attempt to write anything worthwhile in long-hand. I’m a Virgo so I can’t stand messy pages—neatly typed all the way.

Then there’s coffee. By coffee I mean a good, freshly brewed double latte, which is known in my house as “cup of joy.”

I try to keep snacking to a minimum. But I do keep a bowl of fruit in my office, specifically apples and tangerines. Also, almonds and beef jerky.

And a cat. The cat is definitely a must have. I have two cats, but only one is a writer-cat. He escorts me downstairs to the basement office every morning and stays down with me all day. Then he escorts me back upstairs. Gizmo is a big, yellow tabby who knows all my secrets and loves me anyway.

This book was cute. I wouldn’t say it was my favorite book in the world. But it was definitely cute. It’s a good book for when you just need something light, fun, and entertaining. I think Tina Connolly did a good job at getting this crazy world and make it light hearted and fun. There were […]
