Aug 26, Hailey HaileyinBookland rated it really liked it Shelves: I especially despised the ending. It was not what I expected but I liked it nevertheless. Girls who were even a little strange were accused of witchery and arrested, girls who liked other girls were arrested, women in spotswopd were arrested, basically. She has an unique power, and no, she doesn’t feel like a Mary Sue. Also in The Cahill Witch Chronicles.

There was more of that towards the end, so I became a little more invested——but honestly through the first half of the book or so, I kept almost forgetting that it was even a fantasy. Something Strange and Deadly. First there is a flashback where I am led to believe that Paul holds more meaning to you than he apparently does. Open Preview See a Problem?

Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood

The Sisters are the feminine arm of the Brotherhood, only without any power: I thought it was ma Actual rating: Spottswood Wicked is a beautifully written debut that had me under a spell from the very first page. The thing that I really liked is how are well mixed different argumentsdespite the book not being that long. It’s actually an alternate history, which made me love the setting even more.


With spktswood magic, haunting prophecies and impossible choices, Born Wicked is wickedly captivating.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. But anyway, yeah needed more magic. For a book about witches there was If you had to be Katniss, you’d never volunteer because what if that vixen to whom you sell beavers or something stole Gale while you were away fighting for your life? And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship – or an early grave. Plus, the bookshop chapters But how could a witch be part of the Sisterhood?

But with only six months left to choose between marriage and the Sisterhood, she might not be able to keep her word. Which is why I don’t fucking understand the need for a love triangle at all. If you do not like it you are eliminated from the society.

I disliked her from pretty much the beginning. DYING to read more.

This book was far away from being predictable! He was just really cute and although I wasn’t a fan of Cate, I did want them to end up together even though I think he can do much better than Cate. I’ve only read to slightly less than the wicjed mark but I can already tell this is going to devolve into some crappy love triangle fest that’ll have me gnashing my teeth.


I quite understood and borm with the horror you felt concerning the chauvinistic bastards who organized themselves as the Brotherhood and whose main aim was to ensure that women did not move out of their place in the supposed “natural” order of things. I’m full on hating the Brotherhood for hunting witches and supressing women.


But with only Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. At first I thought she wasn’t so bad but after a little while I was ready for her to go. She has to play disciplinarian to her two contrary, wilder, free-spirited sister, and it sucks the life out wifked her to do so.

This was due to two main things. I know this book wanted to be a book about sisters and how women are stifled in society, but the most interesting thing about it was the romance. Why are the romance scenes cliche, you spotawood What is the Sisterhood? The Cahill sisters are witches who must practice their witchcraft in secret, and they hate it. I thought it was magical realism.

Born Wicked – Jessica Spotswood

I love her occasional moments of wicjed and resentment at having been forced to grow up so fast, so soon. The governess has “brown skin. I really really hope that Cate embraces her powers now and fights. Sure a lot of this is bred from the environment she’s raised in but really.

And I so adored Tess! I have no idea.

This book is one you can’t miss. I’m not saying anything about the plot except for that it’s super engaging. I did sort of like Paul.
