Note to self: Read more books like this! My review of Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood!

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.
This book hit the top of my TBR because of one thing... The book trailer! That's something that doesn't happen often for me. Something about this particular trailer just stuck with me though. It made this book a must read and I was definitely impressed! Gotta love a good book about witches! After reading this book.. WOW I'd love to read more. A light and simple read that's easy to breeze threw. The hints of romance kept me reading and the bits of scandal kept me waiting for more. Everything leading up to the ending! This ending... Let's just say.. Your gonna wanna get there! WOW! It's surprising, and heartbreaking, and simply... perfect! A great ending to a pretty darn good book! More than enough to leave this book reader interested in reading more. Good thing it's a series! Can't wait to read the next one! I really NEED to know... WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?????? :)

    I agree the trailer makes the book look super good. It's is good to hear that you liked this one so much.

  5. I have to agree with you, this is one of the best book trailers I've seen in a long time! I cannot wait to get my copy to read! My store was sold out :( Going to check next week, but I'll prob cave and order it, lol!
    Thanks for the review!
