My pick this week...

Born Wicked (The Cahill Witch Chronicles #1)
by Jessica Spotswood

Release Date: February 7th 2012 
by G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers
Hardcover, 326 pages

Goodreads blurb:

A Great and Terrible Beauty meets Cassandra Clare in this spellbinding fantasy

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.

Ok, this one got me at A Great and Terrible Beauty meets Cassandra Clare. :))
 
I love books with magic, spells, elemental powers, witches and that sort of things, so Born Wicked seems to be right up my alley. Add secrets, friendship, sisterhoods, brotherhoods, rebellion, forbidden love to the mix and you got what seems to be a super awesome debut novel! And it comes out on my birthday, how cool is that? (mark your calendars LOL)
Oh, and the cover is gorgeous! I can't wait to add it to my shelf!

What are you waiting on this week?
xoxo
