    5 stars. Possibly my favorite installment of the series, which is interesting because it isn't even a full-length novel. Susan Dennard (and the team at Tor) did an amazing job with this book!***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog***Sightwitch by Susan DennardBook 0.5 of the Witchlands seriesPublisher: Tor TeenPublication Date: February 13, 2018Rating: 5 starsSource: Review copy from the publisherSummary (from Goodreads):Set a year before Tr...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum don’t know what it is about the Witchlands series, but both novels that are out thus far have received middling ratings from me when I reviewed them, and yet I just keep coming back for more! Still, if I had to guess, I would credit the simply sublime world Susan Dennard has created. Say what you will about her storytelling and characters, but the incredible imagination...
  • Beatrice (beatriceinbookland)
    "Paths do not come to you. You have to find them for yourself, and sometimes, you have to carve new ones entirely."Not amazing, but enjoyable nonetheless!I really liked Ryber. She's strong, smart, ready to fight for her loved ones and she never gives up. I hope she finds her happy ending at the end of the series. And I liked Kullen, too.But to me what makes the series so special (BESIDES AEDUAN AND ISEULT MY BEAUTIFUL OTP) are the friendships. Ry...

    This review was originally posted on Books of My Heart Is a 0.5 novella something you should read in a series? Well, it depends on the series in question, and for the Witchlands series, I would say definitely yes, but you don’t want to read it first.  That is also the tricky part of adding a prequel to a series later. When should your readers actually read it?  For Sightwitch ,I would say that you should have at least read Truthwitch to have...

    I love this series so much! It is so fascinating! This is a quick little prequel that just adds to the story. I enjoyed it very much and to me it was so magically written. It had a high fantasy feel for such a short, YA book. This only takes a few hours to read but is a great book to get readers through the wait for the next book!My quick and simple overall: magical and fascinating!
  • Olivia (The Candid Cover)
    I hope that you are super pumped to get some more of Susan Dennard’s The Witchlands series into your life because you are not going to want to miss this amazing novella! Sightwitch is so much more than a little novella. This whirlwind of a book has a format that is sort of like a scrapbook. It contains some incredible world building, interesting characters, and enough breadcrumbs to satisfy the hungriest fans of the series.If you have been foll...

    You know, it's really sad. I used to re-read before I discovered Goodreads which led me to discover how vast and never-ending this world of books really is. Those days were chill even if I read only 5 books a year. At least I could pick up the books I liked again and again and did not have to worry about the infinite number of books waiting to be read. Sigh.I read more than 10 books each year at least which are part of a series. With the 365 day ...

    I received an excerpt from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Sightwitch is the novella sets before the events of Truthwitch, and it follows the story of Ryber and how she met Kullen. Since it's only an excerpt of 118 pages my rating may change after reading the other part, but so far I give it 2/5 stars. Basically, nothing exciting happens and it's pretty boring, too. We see Ryber as apprentice to become a Sightwitch, but it seems the G...

    [Basing this on the 118 pages I got to read, so minor changes will be made when I read the finished copy]Thank you to Netgalley and the Publisher for letting me get to take a sneak peek at this book!Guys, its looking good! No seriously, its got artwork in it and of course the images are gorgeous! Now you're probably wondering why there's artwork and that is because this is being told in diary format.Which completely works! Its got multiple POV's ...

    Looooooved. I ADORE this series. (I've also been playing a lot of Dragon Age: Inquisition lately, so this book's maps, text excerpts, etc reminded me of the different codexes and finding my way through a quest which was an aspect I really enjoyed)
  • Danielle Drenth
    Wasn't expecting to love this as much as I did but it was AMAZING! And now I am even more excited/impatient for Bloodwitch!!!
  • Inside My Library Mind
    More reviews up on my blog Inside My Library Mind Actual rating: 4.5 I thought I’d do a bit of a different review this time for a couple of reasons. First, this is a prequel novella in a series I love, but since it’s a novella AND a prequel, it’s kinda short, and offers a lot of back story and thus it’s kind of a difficult one to review. SO here's 10 reasons why you should read Sightwitch! 1. It's Gorgeous This books is just beautiful. I...

    UPDATE 2/14I finally read the whole book! It was amazing with more sketches and wonderful descriptions! I did not expect some revelations and I hope that a certain Thread-brother will come back! I DON'T WANT THIS SHIP TO SINK!I read the preview excerpt from NetGalley.I liked being back to the world of the Witchlands. There is a lot of mystery going on in this novella and there are alternative POVs moving back and forth in time. A certain loved Th...
  • Kelly Tse
    This book was honestly too wonderful and too short and too delightful. I loved it so much, because Ryber’s story gives us SO MUCH insight into the world of the Witchlands. I learned so much, and it makes me even more excited for Bloodwitch and the rest of the series! It really is a brilliant companion to the series, and makes a great story to placate one as they await the next book in the series.Note: This e-ARC was provided by the publisher in...
  • Shanna Hughes
    Another wonderful read from Susan Dennard. With SIGHTWITCH, Dennard shows just how much she masters different voices, as well as weaving in clues in a very, very smart way. Absolutely adored the ending of this book and can't wait to add an illustrated copy to my shelves!
  • Luna
    I am a huge fan of the Truthwitch series so I was so excited when I got the opportunity to read an excerpt for the Sight Witch!However, my excitement fell when I started the book. Unfortunately, the book was a bit boring and it started out really slow. I had to put the book a couple of times and pick it back up to get back into it.It followed the path of a specific Sightwitch who needs to find out where all of her other sisters have disappeared i...

    I loved this preview! I've never read the other books by Susan Dennard, but I was intrigued the moment that I saw this preview. Even better, it's book 0.5! This meant that I wouldn't really spoiler myself as badly as if it was book two. I loved the photo's / sketches in the book. I haven't read the other books, but I love the main character from this part. Might be an evil character after all, but for now, i really loved her.I'm so ready to read ...

    DEAD.I HAVE NEW THEORIES NOW AND I HAVEN’T EVEN FINISHED PROCESSING THIS. BUT OMG.I live for fantasy series like this one, that pepper in tidbits in small doses and the story slowly and truly unfolds with every bite of information and then BAM awesomeness.Full review:Whew. That was a rollercoaster.It’s safe to say that by now I really just love this series and don’t have anything bad to say about it. While novellas aren’t usually my thing...
  • Lulai
    So I finally read the whole book. It a nice bonus, I think we learn a bit more about some caracters and the stakes of the story. I don't think you are going to be lost if your don't read it but if you like this series it is a nice book. ---------------------------------------I read a sampler provide by NetGalley against an honnest review.It is always hard to judge a book on so little but I have to say this book is a nice bonus to the story. From ...
  • Adriyanna Zimmermann
    SIGHTWITCH by Susan Dennard is a book like no other. The third book in Dennard’s fantasy series, this illustrated novella is set one year before TRUTHWITCH and is made up of journal entries, sketches, maps, letters, notes, and records as well as songs, prayers & rules pertaining to the Sightwitches. There is so much to this novella, but it is never overwhelming. Dennard’s writing skills have reached new heights. SIGHTWITCH is one of the most ...

    This book was so unexpected. I didn't really know much going into it, just that it was a prequel novella to the Witchlands series, but I am so glad I decided to pick this one up because I absolutely loved it. I was so fascinated by the Sightwitch Sisters, and it was really interesting to see the world and fall in love with the characters both in the past and present. They all felt very authentic and real to me, so I just really loved this story.T...
