Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.


Born Wicked
by Jessica Spotswood

hitting shelves February 2012 from Putnam BFYR

description: Cate Cahill and her sisters are considered eccentric bluestockings—a little odd, a little unfashionable, and far too educated for their own good. The truth is more complicated; they’re witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it could mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave. Before their mother died, she entrusted Cate with keeping them safe and keeping everyone, including their father, in the dark about their powers. When her father employs a governess and Cate begins to receive notes from her missing, presumed-mad godmother, her task becomes much more difficult. As Cate searches for answers in banned books and rebellious new friends, she must juggle unwanted proposals, tea parties, and an illicit attraction to the new gardener. Cate will do anything to protect her sisters, but at what cost to herself?

My Thoughts: I know this is a long way off, but I WANT THIS. Not only is the cover gorgeous, but the story also sounds completely amazing. I love sister stories and witch stories and stories about girls who are "far too educated for the their own good". Throw in the mysterious godmother, a sinister sounding brotherhood, tea parties and a hot gardener---I'm IN.

  1. I love the title of this book, and the cover is so pretty! And, of course, the mixture of witches and rebellious characters, and a cute-sounding romance doesn't hurt. :)
