It’s that time again… another book review. Up to bat this time is Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood.
It should come as no surprise to anyone that has read my blog for a while that I have no qualms about reading a book labeled “YA”… aka, young-adult. Read teenager.
Twilight, The Hunger Games, all YA books, and all thoroughly enjoyed. Born Wicked falls quite comfortably into this category. Jessica Spotswood tells the intriguing story of three sisters, all with their own eccentricities, sharing the bond of witch-hood. After facing their mother’s death, the oldest sister Cate is left to protect her sister’s secret identity from her father, the “Brotherhood,” her suitors, and the community. Faced between the choice to protect her family or pursue her own happiness, the story takes you on a ride of twists and turns and true to any chronicle, leaves you with a cliffhanger ending.
This is another quick read that takes you into a world of fantasy. Per usual, I didn’t want to divulge too much information about the plot. But if you are one that enjoys the young adult genre and doesn’t mind having to wait a while to read what happens next, then I definitely recommend this book. I was on the late end of the Hunger Games and Twilight, so I was able to read all of the books back to back without a break. I personally prefer it that way, as patience is not my strong suit. If you don’t mind being left in suspense though and are looking for a quick, yet fun read, check out Born Wicked.
