Imagine being the reluctant possessor of the most powerful magics. Now imagine not being able to control that magic and harming others, being an outcast, not feeling in control. That is how Clara feels as the rare witch who has strong powers during every season, powers she cannot control while those around her expect more than she feels able to give.
Rachel Griffin’s THE NATURE OF WITCHES starts out with a wonderful premise that is both current and creative as she weaves her tale with threads of ...more
For centuries, witches have maintained the climate, their power from the sun peaking in the season of their birth. But now their control is faltering as the atmosphere becomes more erratic. All hope lies with Clara, an Everwitch whose rare magic is tied to every season.
i kind of... hate the cover 😔

The Nature of Witches was such a fun book to dive into. After first meeting Clara, I had a feeling that I was going to fall in love with her pretty quickly. Well, that sort of happened because at first she was kind of annoying. Mostly because she just kept pushing people away and looking for acceptance and approval from people.. when she should've been doing the complete opposite.
The reason why I saw this is because she is ...more
I would read so many books about this world!
I hope there is a quiz someday to figure out which season I belong to :) ...more
Ok, wow. This book was a total wonderful surprise!
When I started reading I was worried it was going to be a thinly veiled attempt to talk about climate change (and climate change is a big part of the story, but it doesn’t get too preachy and I appreciate the way it’s infused throughout the story) but by the end of the first “season” I was hooked.
The characters are vivid, the romance well d ...more
“The Nature of Witches” follows Clara, the lone witch tied to each season, as she struggles to own her power and use it to combat the unpredictable weather following the death of her friend. When it all becomes too much her teachers give her a tutor and hope she can end the year better than it began.
I had never been so bored in my entire life while reading a book!
I love any sort of witch book and the co ...more
This is not your typical magical place. The world Rachel Griffin built is so unique, filled with many fresh corners and creations to explore! The magic system is enthralling and intricately crafted, and the atmosphere is something I felt as I read.
Clara is one of the most compelling MCs I’ve read, the characters are so fully fleshed, and the plot had me ...more

Overall, I enjoyed it and for some reason I flew through this book which helped but sometimes, I wished we had a bigger plot. It did feel like nothing much happened other than the FMC's training to be an Everwitch, meaning a w ...more
I laughed, I cried, I enjoyed every aspect of this story and will likely catch myself reading this novel multiple times.

I am in agony. Pure, blissful agony.
Hopefully, I will be able to be somewhat coherent, but uh… no promises. I will do my best, though. So, there I was, living my life, my heart free from the beauty and suffering that is The Nature of Witches , when the book all but catapulted itself into my life. And, oh boy, was I unprepared.
I mean… I did my due diligence before I started reading–to an extent. I scanned the synopsis, read the reviews that were available, but nowhere did i ...more
Clare is a witch but not an ordinary witch. She is an Everwitch meaning she has strong magical powers in all four seasons as compared to all the others ...more
This was such a delightful read! I’ve been wary of young adult fantasy books lately because it just felt like I’m reading different versions of the same plot.
The reason I decided to go for The Nature of Witches was definitely the refreshing plot. I have never read anything about climate change before, and I honestly never thought I would go all starry-eyed over something like this but the w ...more
But the shaders -those without magic-were swept away by the possibilities of a world protected by magic, of a world where every square inch could be used for gain. They began to push the limits of our power and our atmosphere. At first we went along with it, caught up in their excitement. Then their excitement turned to greed, and they refuse ...more
Thanks to the publishers, author, and Netgalley for approving me for an e-arc of The Nature of Witches by Rachel Griffin.
The premise is amazing!! Seasonal witches who are stronger during their season and weaker the other months out of the year, but our main character Clara is an Everwitch meaning she harnesses all seasons within her magic. These witches are struggling to deal with climate change that humans (known as shaders in the book) have cont ...more
This book is so very different from other books I’ve read because it’s not a story about a witch, or a boarding school--the main character is really the magic. Forget settings, forget characters, the magic is the true supers ...more

I was intrigued by the premise of this story and ended up really enjoying it. The author does a great job of world building, make it easy for me to create a mental picture of what was happening in the books.
