Hello my book witches!

To forget about reality for a while, I bring you The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill. This is a light middle-grade fantasy with witches, magic, tiny dragons and swamp monsters. I absolutely leafed through the pages like a hungry reader thirsting for more. It's a simple and enchanting fairytale that kept me quietly chuckling to myself, while I was lost under waves of various emotions.

A small Protectorate town sits nestled near a volcanic peak, encircled by dense dark forests. The townsfolk believes a Witch lives in the forest who'll harm them all, if a baby isn't sacrificed each year. So they leave the youngest child of the Protectorate, in the forest, as an offering to the Witch. But the witch, Xan, doesn't understand why these people abandoned one of their own in the forest each year. So she took care of them, travelled far to place them in the arms of another loving family who wanted them. But one time, the kind witch fed a child moonlight, instead of starlight. And the child grew up enmagicked, as her granddaughter, Luna. I loved the tiny dragon Fyrian, and the swamp monster Glerk who lived with Xan and Luna. Luna being an enmagicked child, couldn't understand her powers and Xan had to lock away the magic inside of Luna by binding it to her own. Luna's magic will return when she turns thirteen. This also meant Xan will die when Luna's magic comes back.

There's multiple point of views in the narration and that added to the story immensely, making it very compelling for a fantasy read. And the writing was so flowing and almost poetic that I couldn't help but fall in love with this book.
