the orphan witch review

“Just this once, she thought, please let someone see me.”

I have your next autumn read! The Orphan Witch: night fog, cursed island, the tale of the blood moon crown, the prophecy promised. What a delightful assault on the senses! Beyond atmospheric! Enchanting! Paige Crutcher has a brilliant way with words! I am pleased as petunias with this entire novel! Dorian…the attractive bad-mannered librarian/guardian of The Library for the Lost. Swoon. He stole my heart and I was rooting for him and Persephone. I snickered, I got misty eyed, I sighed dreamily, I gasped over revelations! I was totally entertained by Persephone May’s journey. The Orphan Witch is perfect for fans of V.E. Schwab and Alice Hoffman. Best paired with a steaming cup of chamomile tea. ☕️

“I’ve always longed for a home. Like the ones I read in stories, but I was never Anne of Green Gables or even Pippi Longstocking.”

-lost & found family
-curses & spells
-pirates (very brief) & bargains
-tea & baking (“crustless cherry pies and chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting so bright it glittered.”)
-learning & libraries
-sisterhood of magic
-salt, the sea, a tang of honey and wine
-#IsThisAKissingBook: “They kissed the stars down into the sky and the lightning bugs into the air. They kissed the waters warm and the air into mist.”
