Review originally posted on my blog http://hobbitsies.net/wordpress/2012/...

I have been waiting and waiting for Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood for what feels like AGES now. If you know me, you know I love all things witches, so I went into Born Wicked expecting pure awesome.

And I was totally not let down. Isn’t that such a relief? I freaking loved Born Wicked and I just want to read it over and over again. First off, because the writing was gorgeous and so talented, and I love reading a debut author and thinking – I want to read everything this author ever writes.

Also? The characters. I loved the three sisters – Cate and Tessa and Maura – and how varied their personalities were and their individual story lines were all so different, yet they all worked well with each other, to balance each other out. But at the same time, Cate was clearly my favourite – I was rooting for her all along. And Finn. While Born Wicked initially presented itself as having a love triangle, it quickly became clear to me – there’s no contest there. And the kissing scenes. You know.

OKAY AND THE STORY. I don’t usually capslock over the entire story of a book, but I swear, I want to capslock all over Born Wicked. Because the storyline is so engaging and upsetting at points and even if you know and you say “yeah, that’s going to happen later on” – it goes way beyond the expected.

Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood is, legit, one of my favourite books of 2012 so far. I love witches, I love historicalish books, I love swoonworthy boys and family drama. Born Wicked had it all and did it badass-ly. Check it out.
