And now for today’s:
Born Wicked, The Cahill Witch Chronicles, Book 1
by Jessica Spotswood
9780399257452, Penguin, $17.99
Pub. Date: February 2012
A Great and Terrible Beauty meets Cassandra Clare in this spellbinding fantasy.”
Uh, yes please! Here’s the rest of the publisher description:
Everybody knows 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.

Before her mother died, Cate promised to protect her sisters. But with only six months left to choose between marriage and the Sisterhood, she might not be able to keep her word . . . especially after she finds her mother’s diary, uncovering 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.

If what her mother wrote is true, the Cahill girls aren’t safe. Not from the Brotherhood, the Sisterhood – not even from each other.

Last night, I finished WHAT THE NIGHT SINGS by @vesperillustration. This morning, I woke up and poured my heart into a review. This YA historical fiction novel comes out February 2018 from @penguinrandomhouse, and is one of those meaningful books everyone should read as a reminder of both the inhuman degradation people are capable of and the resilience of the human spirit. Powerful, enchanting, and putting forth two perspectives we don't often see in Holocaust literature : a secular Jewish perspective and the significance of music.
