Saying that I was wickedly excited for, Born Wicked, would be an understatement! With it being one of my most anticipating reads of the years, I am very pleased to say it certainly lived up to my expectations!
Ever since watching Sabrina and Bewitched, I’ve been in love with witches, so when I heard about this book I straight away added it my list. I’ve heard of some books with lovely covers, but when it came to what was inside the pages it ended in a fail. So…Does it get better than the cover? It certainly does!
Strong, protective and so caring for her sisters - I instantly liked Cate. I don’t think I’ve connected and liked a main character so much in quite a long time! As for her sisters, I loved them both! Tess is adorable, innocent, sweet and so wise for her age! Even though I wanted to slap some sense into Maura, the bratty middle sister, I did care for her.
Now onto the love interests! Paul was nice, but nothing more than a friend in my opinon. As for, Finn, he’s a perfect match for Cate! They understand each other, share a love for books, especially adventure stories and see each other through rose coloured glasses, despite their faults and Cate being a witch. Protective, kind, understanding and brave, Finn is such a sweet guy! I especially loved that he didn’t follow the crowd and had his own opinions.
The romance is fantastic! I especially enjoyed the feather scene! I won’t spoil it for you, but when you come to it, I think you’ll discover why I liked it. Enjoy!
This is the first historical book I’ve read, and I really enjoyed it! I can’t wait to explore the genre a bit more!
The story Miss Spotswood has created is completely captivating. The setting was so lovely to read and picture - the extravagant dresses, the magic, the scenery, everything! Rich and luxurious, the writing was thoroughly enjoyable.
Even though I wanted to enjoy the story, I couldn’t get through the story quick enough, as I was anxious to find out what was going to happen next, especially as the ending loomed.
The ending was mysterious and quite surprising. I was really sad to see the book end, not only because were left in the dark but because I’ll miss the characters, the story and of course, the Cahill sisters! I can't wait to see what happens next!
Personally if I were to describe Born Wicked, this is how I’d go about doing so:
Downton Abbey (a less scandalous version though!)
a trio of sisters
forbidden romanceRating 5/5
