Born Wicked - Blogher Book Review
Born Wicked is a young adult novel about a witch growing up in a fictionalized 1890s, where magic is forbidden and the world is controlled by a mean group of religious jerks called The Brothers. Cate and her sisters have extraordinary powers, but they mustn't use them, for fear of being locked away in a madhouse, sent to toil on a prison ship or killed.
So, I do occasionally read YA novels for the magic (or the dystopia), but really, if I'm going to be honest with you, I read them for the juicy high school romances. Born Wicked doesn't disappoint, in this arena. It is packed full of cute boys barely containing their puritanical sensibilities, and kisses with tingling limbs. Oh who will the pretty but humble young protagonist choose to wed? It is totally juicy.
I will absolutely and definitely be reading the other two books in the trilogy. As a matter of fact, I feel kind of grumpy about the fact that I can't read them RIGHT NOW.
