Last night, I could have spent half the night reading and finishing Canadian (she lives in Nova Scotia) writer Ami McKay‘s new book Half Spent Was the Night– A Witches Yuletide. I was in bed with my daughter while I was reading…and she wanted to go to sleep (!!) so I had to turn the light off and stop reading! (#cosleepingisforsnugglers) I hope t swoop back in and finish reading this story tonight. I. CAN’T. WAIT.
Ami Mckay is one of my favourite writers. I’ve read all of her books and each one finds a toggle to my writer’s heart and soul and I’m sucked in. I love that. I suffer sometimes severe post-book comas…where I can’t read anything for some time because her work is so amazing. Plus, she writes about witches and women – themes to witch (hee) I very much relate.
I purchased this book for myself as a Christmas gift..and I’ve waited for the perfect time to read it. Witch (hee-hee) is now.
Thank you, Ami for writing these stories and giving us characters who haunt us in the best of ways.
What are you reading?
