BORN WICKED by Jessica Spotswood | review

My thoughts on September's STACK OF FIVE winner, Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood! Thanks to all of you who voted. If you'd like to see the two books (bonus!) that won this month's Stack of Five, check out my October TBR! =)

Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
330 pages
Published February 7th 2012 by Putnam Juvenile
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.


  1. I keep looking at this one, but others push ahead of it. I know I'll eventually read it.

    1. Yeah, that was happening to me, too - and to a bunch of other books, which is why I started doing the whole Stack of Five thing, which is how I ended up reading this. That way, at least 1 book that's slipped down my TBR will be read & reviewed each month, and it's all decided by viewers, so they're engaged. It's a nice way to work through things. =)


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
