Thank you so much to Bloomsbury YA and NetGalley for letting me read The Wickerlight by Mary Watson early. This was such a fun and magical book and I really enjoyed it!
The Wickerlight 4.5/5 Stars
Summary from Goodreads: It’s been two months since Laila was found lifeless on Kilshamble village green, not a mark on her. Rumour says she died of an overdose. Or maybe it was suicide? The autopsy found nothing, but somebody must know what happened.
Now Laila’s sister Zara is ready to pick up the trail. But retracing her sister’s footsteps takes her to David, a Judge at the dangerous heart of an ancient magical feud. All too unwittingly, she begins to tread the same path that led her sister to the village green .
So… I didn’t realize that this was the sequel to the Wren Hunt until about 5 minutes ago when I started looking for the goodreads page to link to my review. I never read the Wren Hunt, although it has been on my TBR, but it definitely seemed like a really cool book, and now that I’ve seen this world, I’m definitely going to try and get to it soon, because I loved The Wickerlight. I love Mary Watson’s writing style, I love Ireland, I love the characters, I love the magic system- everything, I loved everything about this book. This is exactly what I needed right now book wise- something light and interesting that’s totally different from anything else I’ve read recently. If you’re looking for something a little different and fantastical and amazing, I’d definitely say to pick it up (whether you’ve read the Wren Hunt or not).
