Title: Born Wicked

Author: Jessica Spotswood

Series: The Cahill Witch Chronicles #1

Summary via Goodreads:

Everybody thinks 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. Then Cate finds her mother’s diary, and uncovers 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. But if what her mother wrote is true, the Cahill girls aren’t safe–not even from each other.

*Beginning:

Our Mother was a witch, too, but she hid it better.

*Page 58:

How did Mother expect me to keep my promise when I came of age? She knew I wouldn’t be able to stay home forever.

I’ve got to find her diary. Soon.

*Thoughts:

I’ve heard good things about this book. The story sounds interesting and the cover looks really pretty.

What’s on your reading schedule for this weekend? Let me know in the comments.

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a nice weekend.
