Want Want Want Wednesday (29)

Born Wicked By Jessica Spotswood
"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 six months 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 stars 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."
First Off, I am TOTALLY in love with the cover and second, the summary of this book is beyond amazing. Right up my ally, and from what everyone is telling me, this book lives up to what the cover promises!

The Girl In The Clockwork Collar  By Kady Cross
"In New York City, 1897, life has never been more thrilling - or dangerous. 
Sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne and her "straynge band of mysfits" have journeyed from London to America to rescue their friend Jasper, hauled off by bounty hunters. But Jasper is in the clutches of a devious former friend demanding a trade-the dangerous device Jasper stole from him...for the life of the girl Jasper loves. 
One false move from Jasper and the strange clockwork collar around Mei's neck tightens. And tightens. "
I finish reading The Girl in the Steel Corset only a few weeks ago, and fell in love with it! By far, one of my favorite reads and was hoping I wouldn't have to wait long to reading Book Two in the series. Low and Behold, Book Two was right around the corner and now all I want to do is get my grubby little hands on it!!!

Out of Sight Out of Time By Ally Carter
"The last thing Cammie Morgan remembers is leaving the Gallagher Academy to protect her friends and family from the Circle of Cavan--an ancient terrorist organization that has been hunting her for over a year. But when Cammie wakes up in an alpine convent and discovers months have passed, she must face the fact that her memory is now a black hole. The only traces left of Cammie’s summer vacation are the bruises on her body and the dirt under her nails, and all she wants is to go home. 
Once she returns to school, however, Cammie realizes that even the Gallagher Academy now holds more questions than answers. Cammie, her friends, and mysterious spy-guy Zach must face their most difficult challenge yet as they travel to the other side of the world, hoping to piece together the clues that Cammie left behind. It’s a race against time. The Circle is hot on their trail and willing stop at nothing to prevent Cammie from remembering what she did last summer. "
I have yet to read Book Four in this Series "Only The Good Spy Young". However, this is a series I adore and have so far loved all of Ally Carter's work. I was hoping to be able to go to a book signing she is having in the Bay Area this coming week but it didn't work out.

  1. I can honestly say that Born Wicked has a lot of good stuff to offer, and Cate Cahill and Finn Belastra just won me over, both separately and together. The Clockwork Collar! Oh, yeah, bro, I definitely want to read that. Who would've thunk it? I liked the first book, but I didn't realize how much I missed these characters! :D
