Format: select

We have a special giveaway for our readers today! Our friends at PenguinTeen are offering a prize pack for the first two books in The Cahill Witch Chronicles by Jessica Spotswood. This is a series that I’m personally very excited to read soon!


One lucky winner will receive a paperback copy of Born Wicked and an ARC of Star Cursed. US only!

Born Wicked

Born Wicked (The Cahill Witch Chronicles #1)

A gorgeous, witchy, romantic fantasy by a debut author! Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and the Beautiful Creatures series!
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.


Star Cursed

Star Cursed (The Cahill Witch Chronicles #2)

With the Brotherhood persecuting witches like never before, a divided Sisterhood desperately needs Cate to come into her Prophesied powers. And after Cate’s friend Sachi is arrested for using magic, a war-thirsty Sister offers to help her find answers—if Cate is willing to endanger everyone she loves.
Cate doesn’t want to be a weapon, and she doesn’t want to involve her friends and Finn in the Sisterhood’s schemes. But when Maura and Tess join the Sisterhood, Maura makes it clear that she’ll do whatever it takes to lead the witches to victory. Even if it means sacrifices. Even if it means overthrowing Cate. Even if it means all-out war.
In the highly anticipated sequel to Born Wicked, the Cahill Witch Chronicles continue Cate, Maura and Tess’s quest to find love, protect family, and explore their magic against all odds in an alternate history of New England.

    I have not read them yet.  I was supposed to read Born Wicked but never received the book.  Looking forward to reading them both.

    Loved Born Wicked! Although that ending?! What a cliff hanger! Cannot wait to read Star Cursed and find out What happens to the sisters and the Brotherhood…

    I actually haven’t read this series yet, but it’s something that I’ve been meaning to pick up. I’ve always been a fan of witch stories where their secret must be kept, or risk death. It’s always just been really intriguing. That makes me sound super morbid, hahaha.

    I went into Born Wicked with pretty low expectations, thinking that it wouldn’t be my kind of read, but by the end I was so enthralled and in love with the story–it’s one of my favorite reads from last year! SO excited for this sequel 😀

    I NEED Star Cursed! Now. I loved Born Wicked but the ending KILLED me. Poor Finn! Poor Cate!

  15. Paperback Princess

    Steph I absolutely enjoyed Born Wicked and I’ve been in correspondence with Jessica herself and she’s so lovely! I absolutely devoured Born Wicked, I just really enjoyed the era it was set in and I think that Jessica did wonderfully in taking her readers back, I just love how everything was done. However, I was very sad for the ending and couldn’t wait to grab Star Cursed just to know what’s going to happen!!!

    Born Wicked is one of the best witch books that I’ve ever read. The love triangle was also well written, which seems to be a rarity. I’m very much looking forward to the next book!

    I haven’t been able to read Born Wicked yet.  The local library doesn’t have it, and, as my mother loves to remind me, I can’t buy all the books in the world.

  22. Lyka Cali

    Born Wicked has been in my to-read list for a long time now. Sad that I can’t find a copy on our local bookstore. Hope I win. *cross fingers*
