SOULSMITH (CRADLE #2) BY WILL WIGHT | BOOK REVIEW
Soulsmith by Will Wight is the second book in the Cradle series. We are buddy reading the whole series and had a blast reading Unsouled. While I was a bit slow to start, I still had a ton of fun reading it with our Goodreads group. Everyone had interesting things to say and new insights to provide. Highly recommend buddy reading fantasy series as it not only helps in discussing the book and ideas but also helps in catching up to elements that we might have missed or glossed over and also makes it easier to keep track of all the details.

This was also one of the buddy reads I signed up for on Goodreads and had a blast reading it with our group. I started Insouled in January and am only now getting to review the book. Life got hold of me and I am behind on most of my reviews.

THE LAST WISH (THE WITCHER #0.5) BY ANDRZEJ SAPKOWSKI | BOOK REVIEW
I have been wanting to read The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski for the longest time. Ever since the first season of The Witcher came out, I was excited to try it. When the chance to read this series came about in the form of buddy reads on Goodreads, I obviously jumped.

I haven't watched the series, because I didn't want to spoil myself. So here I am after finishing the first book The Last Wish and I am honestly a little deflated…
