Waiting on Wednesday: Born Wicked

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight books we can't wait for.

Born Wicked (The Cahill Witch Chronicles #1)
by Jessica Spotswood
7 February 2012

GoodReads summary:
Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they're witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave.

Before her mother died, Cate promised to protect her sisters. But with only six months left to choose between marriage and the Sisterhood, she might not be able to keep her word . . . especially after she finds her mother's diary, uncovering a secret that could spell her family's destruction. Desperate to find alternatives to their fate, Cate starts scouring banned books and questioning rebellious new friends, all while juggling tea parties, shocking marriage proposals, and a forbidden romance with the completely unsuitable Finn Belastra.

If what her mother wrote is true, the Cahill girls aren't safe. Not from the Brotherhood, the Sisterhood—not even from each other.


This is exactly my kind of book. Witches, mysteries, forbidden romance . . . and did I mention witches? I'm not always a fan of paranormal, but I've always loved books about witches. I'm not really sure why. Probably because of Morwen in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles, by Patrica C. Wrede.

But I digress, I'm really looking forward to this one. It just sounds like it'll be an engrossing read. Plus the cover is SO PRETTY. And I'm willing to forgive a lot in a book if it has a pretty cover . . .

Don't forget to enter my Heck-yes-it's-my-birthday Giveaway! Open until September 30.

  5. Totally agree with the cover being very pretty! I haven't read much paranormal about witches besides Harry Potter but I've always loved the idea that I could secretly be a witch :)
