The Witch and the City by Jake Burnett

The Witch and the City by Jake Burnett

This book!! This book! 

Here, now. 

What a world. This started out as a read-at-bedtime book but I found myself thinking about it throughout the day and it became a daytime book too. This book is such a fountain of delights that I feel I need to read it again and again to appreciate it all. The more I think about it the more clever it gets. The ending a succession of fireworks. 

You’ve probably already read the synopsis so I’m not going to bother with any of that. The characters are interesting and the world is weird but it all works because we’re learning about all of it as our MC does. We don’t get all of the answers but we get the important ones, even ones we didn’t know we wanted and I love the imperfection of that. I love this book and will definitely be adding it to my library.

5/5 Stars

I was given a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
