Waiting on Wednesday (#11) Born Wicked

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. Basically, it’s a chance to highlight one of the many books that you want to read but hasn’t been released just yet.

My Waiting on Wednesday pick for this week is…

Title: Born Wicked - The Cahill Witch Chronicles Book 1
Author: Jessica Spotswood
Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: February 7, 2012

[Goodreads | Amazon]

Cate Cahill and her sisters are considered eccentric bluestockings—a little odd, a little unfashionable, and far too educated for their own good. The truth is more complicated; they’re witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it could mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave. Before their mother died, she entrusted Cate with keeping them safe and keeping everyone, including their father, in the dark about their powers. When her father employs a governess and Cate begins to receive notes from her missing, presumed-mad godmother, her task becomes much more difficult. As Cate searches for answers in banned books and rebellious new friends, she must juggle unwanted proposals, tea parties, and an illicit attraction to the new gardener. Cate will do anything to protect her sisters, but at what cost to herself?

How gorgeous is that cover?  It is just so simple and beautiful.  I just want a photograph of it for my wall.  Bonus...is that the story sounds interesting as well.  Double score!

What is your Waiting on Wednesday pick this week?
