This series is not all I hoped it to be. There are quite a few subliminals on trends for today. The storyline seems fairly decent, but a person can only take so much of those lines in between like "Ooo! Isn't this dress great! It makes me look just Britney Spears!" and "No, no. Green certainly isn't your color. You don't want to look too much like Christina Aguilera." I did, however, enjoy about 50% of the story...and I like that a fair amount of truth with Wicca came out in this book. (i.e.:May ...more

From the Witchy Books Network review blog.

Kate Morgan, a 16-year-old, popular basketball player, is assigned a term paper on the witch trials of the 17th century. Amongst the pile of books she checks out of the library, she finds an actual spellbook. Skeptical at first, she decides to try a love spell to attract the football-playing senior of her dreams. When the spell goes haywire -- earning her the attentions of every guy in school and the ire of all their girlfriends -- she begins wishing tha
Interesting Wiccan fiction - clearly written for readers in middle school, possible slightly younger. I don't think it would be the most captivating for older young adults.

I'm not a Wiccan, so I can't attest to the accuracy of the Wiccan descriptions. However, while reading the book, I felt as though I was reading the Wiccan equivalent to young adult Christian fiction. While the main plot deals with Kate Morgan doing a spell and then trying to deal with the consequences and set everything right

Book #1 in Circle of Three series
Spoilers: NONE

This was a very good and an easy read. I finished it within hours and it kept my interest even though I am no longer in the teen years. I would recommend this book to young adults and teens who are interested in paranormal teen books.
The author had a very simple and
I about died from excitement when I saw on Overdrive a series that jumped out to me. I used to read these books ALL the time as a kid! It was cheap, flimsy paperbacks put on the crap revolving shelves at my library and it took forever to turn them around and find the exact book you wanted. My YA section was so small. It was one shelf unit, back to front and that was about it. Thankfully, my new library is much larger and seems to be investing quite heavily in ebooks through Overdrive (to my grea ...more
I read this book in middle school and even though the level is still for that age range, it was nice to revisit as an adult. I particularly like how the author clearly demonstrates that all actions have consequences, even magical ones. This is a good little read. Now, on to the next one!
This book is about a teenager who has to do a paper on the witchcraft trials. While doing research she comes across a book of spells and decides to try one out to get the person she likes to like her back. After that she starts to learn more about Wicca and what happens when you send your energy out.

This book was just ok, to me it seemed more aimed towards pre teens than anything else. Also there were some truths to what she was learning about Wicca but a lot of it too seemed really forced an

I first read this book during my university years, the year after its release (in 2002), many supernatural/ paranormal/ wiccan books came out between 2001 and 2005. This is one of many series I read those years, and one I have fond memories of (together with the Wicca/ Sweep series and the Daughters of the Moon series).

Reading it now, 12 years later (I feel old now :)), it hasn't lost its charm. Circle of Three is well written, an easy read and has actual characters. I can still relate to the ma
I actually read all of these. Yep. They had them at our library, so... Of course, they were intended to be mostly educational (with some teen drama thrown in) so I'm surprised I didn't hear anything about it being the.worst.ever because unlike the Harry Potter books, here was a series that really and truly did try and make witchcraft look cool. Well, no. But it did explain about Wicca and other religions that used ritualized magic in a way that was down to earth (as opposed to fantasy series whe ...more
I read this years ago. Decided I needed to reread it to get started on the series again.

I actually bought this booking thinking that it just looked ok. I got it at a used book sale along with 5 of the other books in the series for 25 cents a piece. I thought that if they turn out terrible then it's not a big loss. I actually LOVED them. This book is not one of the best of the series but does do a great job at introducing the characters and how they found each other and Wicca. It is centered around a younger crowd but I think that it is a great read for any pre-teens or teens that a ...more
Ich kann mich nur noch daran erinnern, es vor vielen Jahren gelesen zu haben, zusammen mit ein paar anderen aus der Reihe. Ich mochte es unglaublich gern und es hat mir in meiner Entwicklung weg von einer christlichen Glaubenswelt geholfen - auch wenn ich keine Wicca wurde und auch mit Esoterik nichts mehr am Hut habe. Wunderbar für junge Teenager, die sich selbst finden wollen und gleichzeitig gute Fantasy. Ich glaub, ich muss die Bücher auch mal neu rauskramen und die Reihe für mich vervollstä ...more

I started watching The Secret Circle on Netflix and when I realized it was based on a book series, I could have sworn I had read it before initially before getting through the pilot. Then I read deeper into the full plot of the series and realized it was different than the book series about witches I had read in early high school. But then my curiosity was peaked, and I was determined to remember which series I had read.

I kept seeing later books in this series in my local library and being intrigued, so when the first one popped up at a library book sale, I picked it up. I wasn't expecting much at all, but I actually found it really entertaining. I have a soft spot for things about witchcraft, and this seemed to be a little more true to Wiccan doctrine than other similar books out there, which added an interesting element.

By no means is it a work of great literature, but it pleased me in the same way that Swee

Besides the continuous angst this story was pretty fun. When you're following the mind of a teenager, I guess angst is a part of the program, but I feel like Annie or Cooper would have been more fun to follow around than Kate. Kate's attitude and actions bugged me at times, especially accepting abusive or domineering behavior from the girls who were supposedly her best friends. I would have dumped them on the spot. *sigh*. It was what it was.

A lot of the characters seemed very stereotypical, eve
Because of this Series I fell in love with reading on whole new level. I had not read anything but individual novels before this series. The story is so amazing that you can't help but want to know what happens next. It's a fantastic choice for a young reader that is into witches.

Charmed meets the craft on a very friendly level!
Sophomore Kate hangs out with her friends at school and dreams of a day when Scott, the hottest football player, notices her. Jessica, Terri, and Sherrie tease her about it a lot. It’s Monday and her history project topic is due - and she has no idea what she’s going to do it. Her teacher helps out by providing topics - and Kate is stuck with witchcraft persecutions.
This begins Kate’s journey into the study of witchcraft. After picking her books

This really reminded me of the movie The Craft about three teenage girls unhappy with their lives who start messing around with magic spells and semi-disaster happens. This book is about three teenage girls - Kate, Annie and Cooper. Kate is in love with a football player who doesn't know she exists so she casts this love spell which kinda works but also kinda doesn't. Since this sorta works she tries another spell to help with a chemistry exam. Again that worked but with negative side effects. S ...more
A fresh take on the magickal youngster genre that has just enough magick to be interesting, but enough information based on 'real' magick to not be boring or obnoxious. I defintiely reccommend this book to youngsters and elders alike.
I am kind of on the fence with this book. While I enjoyed the Wicca aspect of the book and the girl's introduction to magic, I was a little put off by all of the high school drama. Of course the book is a teen book written about a group of 10th grade girls who stumble across a book of spells and decide to experiment with magic. There is a lot of teen drama in the book -- cliques, friends, boys, grades, etc. We all remember those days. lol Having a 15 year old daughter made it a little more inter ...more
This was a fairly decent book, my biggest problem with it so far is that I don't really like the protagonist that much, I relate more to her friends. Like I'm empathetic with her, but she can be a bit mind boggling at times, mostly when she's inadvertently a jerk to other people. I get that she's a teenager and I relate to her feelings but I really don't like that she's taking a while to learn from her mistakes.

So I'll read the next book, but I. Need to get through my 50 to 100 books that are b

This was my reading during the final year of high school. I like witchcraft-based stories and sisterhood back on those days. For a light entertainment with a little secret covered by normal lifestyle, this is a very good series, which is enough for me to keep looking for the next books. I wish someday I can complete all the collection by Isobel Bird.
I read this entire series (15 books) over the summer. It follows three teenage girls who decide to study witchcraft (modern Neo-Paganism) together. As a neo-pagan, I really enjoyed it. It definitely had a lot of the elements of teen fiction (issues with gossip, grades, boys, spats with parents and friends) but it really covered modern witchcraft well, too. I actually felt like I learned things from these books and I've been studying for over 6 years.They were definitely light reads, too, which w ...more
Lupurk all'inizio ero incuriosita e quasi intenerita dalla storia e dallo stile, che mi hanno catapultato nuovamente nella prima adolescenza, andando avanti inorridivo di fronte allo slang "giovane", di cui non so se colpevolizzare l'autrice o la traduttrice, ma che in ogni caso fa lo stesso effetto delle unghie sulla lavagna (vi vedo, state rabbrividendo!) e di fronte a una storia senza senso, a personaggi piatti come un foglio di carta, quando non addirittura irritanti. L'inserimento d ...more
I was in the mood for something magical. I always forget how tedious high school books are though. Actually, I can't remember if they were in high school or middle school -- Kate acted like a middle schooler. I couldn't stand her. But the magic was fun and that's all I'd really come for, so I suppose all in all that it wasn't a wash. I don't think I'll read any of the others. I seriously wish someone would recommend a witches only supernatural series to me that I didn't want to cringe through. N ...more

This was an okay read. It was a quick and short read. I don't see myself continuing this series though. Just felt off to me.
Vickie Wilson
I enjoyed this book. It was a simple, fun read, nothing too surprising or anything though. Will I get through the other 10+ books? I don't know. (*sneaks in a year later* I didn't.)
The character's were unique and all, but the book felt like it lacked something. Kate, as the narrator was good but she annoyed me. I think the spells should have been a little more life-threatening for me to be more ivterested, they were bland and not very well thought out... in fact one was ripped straight from Buff
