Waiting on Wednesday (64) - Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood

8:00 AM

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

Release Date: February 7, 2012
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile

Summary (from Goodreads):
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.
Not only does Born Wicked have a gorgeous cover, but the premise for the novel sounds just as great too! With a combination of witches, historical fiction, drama and romance, I'm sure I'll be falling in love with the novel quickly! Born Wicked is the first novel in The Cahill Witch Chronicles by debut author Jessica Spotswood! I'm definitely looking forward to reading this one!

  7. I am wickedly excited about this book, because witches are my favorite of the paranormal - simply because they're completely human and they rely on magics to get all supernaturally. :)
