Wild Is the Witch
Wild Is the Witch | Rachel Griffin
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Nature of Witches, comes another high-stakes contemporary fantasy. When eighteen-year-old witch Iris Gray accidentally enacts a curse that could have dire consequences, she must team up with a boy who hates witches to make sure her magic isn't unleashed on the world. Iris Gray knows witches aren't welcome in most towns. When she was forced to leave her last home, she left behind a father who was no longer willing to start over. And while the Witches' Council was lenient in their punishment, Iris knows they're keeping tabs on her. Now settled in Washington, Iris never lets anyone see who she really is; instead, she vents her frustrations by writing curses she never intends to cast. Otherwise, she spends her days at the wildlife refuge which would be the perfect job if not for Pike Alder, the witch-hating aspiring ornithologist who interns with them. Iris concocts the perfect curse for Pike: one that will turn him into a witch. But just as she's about to dispel it, a bird swoops down and steals the curse before flying away. If the bird dies, the curse will be unleashed--and the bird is a powerful amplifier, and unleashing the curse would turn not just Pike, but everyone in the region, into a witch. New witches have no idea how to control their magic and the consequences would be dire. And the Witches' Council does not look kindly on multiple offenses; if they found out, Iris could be stripped of her magic for good. Iris begs Pike to help her track the bird, and they set out on a trek through the Pacific Northwest looking for a single bird that could destroy everything.

I absolutely loved this book. I was immersed in the story, and it was great how the author incorporated a love of nature with magic. If I had magical powers, it would definitely be Iris' ability to communicate with and heal animals. This was my first Rachel Griffin book but definitely not my last.

A good story about a teenage witch, a cursed owl, and a boy. It's very enemies to lovers, not my favorite trope, but it works for this one 🦉

I got 1/2 way through this & thought “this is very similar to Nature of Witches” got to THE END &realized it is the same author😂
A sweet story with an enemies to lovers vibe/forced proximity between a witch & her snarky nemesis who HATES witches. It‘s cute, it‘s a quick read. Nothing too deep & it may not be 1 I reflect back on, but entertaining. I like in this & Nature of Witches that it‘s more the connection to the Earth than being all powerful

TheNeverendingTBR I love this picture, it's so visually pleasing. 😍 7mo

I got this for $3 at Target! I‘m jealous of the bookish box cover I saw on FB, but I did enjoy the story. Iris is a witch working at a nature center, and accidentally curses a boy she works with for his negative attitude towards witches. Now she and the boy, Pike, have to try to find an owl (that actually carries the curse) without Pike finding out the real reason why - before the injured owl dies and the curse is released. Enemies to lovers!

5feet.of.fury Sounds cute! 8mo

“I lie down on my back and look up at the stars, thousands of white lights in a sea of darkness. Sometimes I‘m overwhelmed by it all, the vastness of this life, the absolute miracle it is that I exist in this moment in time. How much magic is out in the universe, stretching beyond what the eye can see, reaching distances the mind can‘t even comprehend?”

Thank you Crystal! This is an amazing #HHS package.

First, the wrapping was so cool. I loved the Beetlejuice vibe. And the pillow case, the tote bag (which you made! 🧡), the zipper pouch, the Coraline notebook, the Jack socks, the Nightmare snow globe, all of it is just amazing.

And the books - I can‘t wait to read these. What wonderful editions to my library.

Thank you! 🖤🧡🖤🧡🖤

mabell What a fabulous package! 13mo
wanderinglynn @mabell yes I totally agree. 😀 13mo
Littlewolf1 Yay, I‘m glad you loved it. The rolled up poster thing is actually a diamond art picture of multiple Tim Burton characters. 13mo
wanderinglynn @Littlewolf1 yes, I saw that! It looks super fun. I‘ve never tried diamond art before. 13mo

Trying to get some reading in, but this covid booster is kicking my butt!!!

MicheleinPhilly Uh oh, when did you get it? I just got mine today. 14mo
Lovesbooks87 @MicheleinPhilly I got mine last night at 6 and felt okay this morning. Did all my errands then about 10 it hit me. Chills, super hot but no fever and a really sore arm. But I have had a reaction to all my shots. I also got Moderna. 14mo
MicheleinPhilly 😕 I got mine at about 1 today. My arm is already acting up but I‘m hoping for minimal side effects. I just slept a bunch when I got my first 3 so I‘m hoping that‘s all tomorrow has in store for me. 🤞🏼 14mo
Lovesbooks87 @MicheleinPhilly 🤞🏻 that you have minimal side effects too. It has been 25 hours since I got my shot and I am starting to feel a little better so I am hoping when I wake up tomorrow I will be back to myself. But it is worth it to know I have some added protection to keep my family, friends and littles I teach safe. 😊 14mo

It‘s not #bookmail this time but a present. My wonderful daughter @Ciara_Rosey came yesterday with gelato to help soothe my sore mouth & this book I‘ve been dying to read! Having children really pays off sometimes😋 I absolutely loved Griffins first book about witches & can‘t wait to dive into this one.

wanderinglynn Ooh, I really liked her first book! Stacked! 1y

If you look closely, you can see the corner of my book…that I can‘t read because a certain little cat has decided it‘s comfortable to sit on.
Binx is making morning reading difficult 😂

This was a very good, very quick and easy read. It kept me company today while my dad underwent some medical testing. The hardback cover is truly stunning and the story is fun. Managed to snag a signed copy from a local independent bookstore! #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! Hope everything went well for your dad!! 1y
KristiAhlers @TheAromaofBooks so far so good. He sees his cardiologist on Wednesday. He‘s managed to stay out of the hospital for over a month so we think he‘s got therapeutic levels with all of his meds now! 1y
TheAromaofBooks That's a great step forward!! 1y

Really enjoyed this one! Wild is the Witch focuses on Iris and Pike and they‘re pretty much the only characters for most the book I enjoyed their time on the woods and their type of magic.

Rachel Griffin's writting style is so magical and atmospheric that I find myself forgetting I am actually reading. The magic systems she creates are so unique, which I absolutely love! I love how easily Griffin writes in issues of bisexuality and anxiety in a way that is so openly accepted and natural. The real world needs to hurry up and get on the same page. I also love the way I find myself mourning for character we never get to meet.
