January Book Club {2016}

Welcome to the first book club of 2016!!!

Hollllllaaaaa! It's so good to be back and kicking off the new year with a brand new book club pick! This month we chose a new release, Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. I haven't read anything by Susan Dennard yet but the hype surrounding this book has my hopes way up for a new favorite series. I'm a sucker for a good fantasy series, and I love that the descriptions starts out with a friendship and not a romance.  It's release date is January 5th, so grab this book on Tuesday like we will. A little about Truthwitch: 

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.


January seems like it's going to kick book club off with a bang! I'm also working on getting more organized so we can bring you some more consistent posting and book discussions before the end of the month. I know we still have two December book discussions to get up here so we will have those within the next week. We would love if you would join us this month and check back later to discuss the book with us! What's on your TBR list this month?
