It's not that Witchlight was bad, but it took me a while to get into the story. The start was pretty slow and a bit boring that I wasn't encouraged to continue reading, but I've decided to push through anyway.
The paranormal story picks up halfway to the middle, and then I'm caught up in a world of secrets and old magic. The story quickly picks up the pace and before I know it, I'm nearing the end.
However, I feel like even after reading 200 pages, I don't know Holly that well. All I know is that she's pretty powerful and an orphan. I didn't get her personality all that much. Sarah, her best friend, and which should have played a more major role in her life (seeing as she's a best friend and all) quite disappeared somewhere in the middle aside from being mentioned as demanding of her time. Seeing as she's a major fixture in Holly's life, I would have expected a side story where Sarah's told about Holly's magical abilities.
Plus, there were some magical mumbo jumbo that I couldn't quite imagine. I wish the concept of Old Magic was more explained. I feel that there was a huge build-up towards the end but the ending left a little bit more to be desired.
Happy Friday! What are your weekend reads?
