Josephine Hemlock has spent the last 10 years hiding from the Curse that killed her mother. But when a mysterious man arrives at her ivy-covered, magic-fortified home, it’s clear her mother’s killer has finally come to destroy the rest of the Hemlock bloodline. Before Jo can even think about fighting back, she must figure out who she’s fighting in the first place. The more truth Jo uncovers, the deeper she falls into witchcraft darker than she ever imagined. Trapped and running out of time, she begins to wonder if the very Curse that killed her mother is the only way to save everyone she loves.

Why I’m waiting?

Apparently this book is about witches? WITCHES, GUYS. I haven’t read a lot of books about witches, but every time I read it in a synopsis, I get incredibly excited. Maybe it’s the season for witches because y’know, Halloween is around the corner. (And I’m planning to watch Practical Magic then.) But even if it isn’t Halloween soon, how am I not supposed to be excited about witches? WITCHES ARE COOL. ALSO, look at that ivy in this cover. It’s gorgeous! I love how it forms the title. Very creative.

What books are you waiting on?
