    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.

    UNSOULED (CRADLE #1) BY WILL WIGHT | BOOK REVIEW

    Unsouled by Will Wight is the first book in the Cradle series. It is an Asian-inspired fantasy. Although this is a YA/NA novel, it's an exceptionally addictive and fun fantasy for adults as well. 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. The chances of me reading it on my own was pretty slim, as I knew I'd be intimidated by the prospect of tackling a widely popular series. 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…

    The Gilded Ones By Namina Forna is a West African YA fantasy novel that tackles the oppression of women by an extremist religious community. It is the first book in the Deathless series. I remember seeing this cover and being blown by it. It is truly one of the most beautiful covers I have ever seen and the colors just pull you in. This is a story that is unapologetically feminist and female-centric cast takes on us a journey to unravel the secrets of a patriarchal community. The gilded Ones tells the story of Deka, a 16-year-old who is subjected to the deeply abusive blood ritual of their community to…
