Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough | review

This was the first book you guys picked for me to read this year (in our "cover appeal" stack of five), and it feels like it's been AGES since I read it... Definitely time to get a review up and share my thoughts.
Synopsis and links are below, if you want to check the book out. Let me know your thoughts in the comments. Thanks for watching!

Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough

Fantasy, 292 pages
Originally published September 14th 2009 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Tamsin Greene comes from a long line of witches, and she was supposed to be one of the most Talented among them. But Tamsin's magic never showed up. Now seventeen, Tamsin attends boarding school in Manhattan, far from her family. But when a handsome young professor mistakes her for her very Talented sister, Tamsin agrees to find a lost family heirloom for him. The search - and the stranger - will prove to be more sinister than they first appeared, ultimately sending Tamsin on a treasure hunt through time that will unlock the secret of her true identity, unearth the sins of her family, and unleash a power so vengeful that it could destroy them all. This is a spellbinding display of storytelling that will exhilarate, enthrall, and thoroughly enchant.


  1. It sounds interesting in that it's fast-paced, full, and even it's predictability doesn't detract from the story...a nice, smooth YA, from what you're saying. Yay!

  2. Actually, I must have missed the day you introduced this one before, but I'm glad I caught the review. It does sound good. I love 'underdog' stories and I definitely need the palette cleansers too. Thanks for sharing, Misty.


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