Wicked Deep
Wicked Deep | Shea Ernshaw
Hocus Pocus and Practical Magic meets the Salem Witch trials in this haunting story about three sisters on a quest for revenge--and how love may be the only thing powerful enough to stop them. Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow... Where, two centuries ago, three sisters were sentenced to death for witchery. Stones were tied to their ankles and they were drowned in the deep waters surrounding the town. Now, for a brief time each summer, the sisters return, stealing the bodies of three weak-hearted girls so that they may seek their revenge, luring boys into the harbor and pulling them under. Like many locals, seventeen-year-old Penny Talbot has accepted the fate of the town. But this year, on the eve of the sisters' return, a boy named Bo Carter arrives; unaware of the danger he has just stumbled into. Mistrust and lies spread quickly through the salty, rain-soaked streets. The townspeople turn against one another. Penny and Bo suspect each other of hiding secrets. And death comes swiftly to those who cannot resist the call of the sisters. But only Penny sees what others cannot. And she will be forced to choose: save Bo, or save herself.

Eerie and suspenseful. This story of three ghosts set on revenge for two hundred years settles in and doesn't let you go. A love story I won't forget very soon.

This book gave me major Hocus Pocus vibes. The Swan Sister were drowned 200 years ago on their birthday. For 200 years the sisters come back on June 1 to steal 3 girls bodies and seek revenge towns boys by drowning them. When Bo comes to town he has no idea what goes on in this town for three weeks. Penny is determined that he won‘t be one of the sisters victims. This book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I loved it!

Pretty standard teen/YA supernatural romance. It‘s a fun read, but nothing earth shattering about it. Also, you‘ll see the twist coming from a mile away.

All of the stars to Shea Ernshaw. In her debut novel, she swept me off my feet and stole my heart with this wonderful tale of three sisters. Delightfully witchy and all around a magical read. 10/10 would recommend.

It was during the 1800s, three sisters accused and condemned as witches. Every summer they return so that they could have their revenge against the town that has murdered them and taken everything from them.

I pretty much figured out what the twist and the ending would be, so the lack of surprise ruined it a little bit for me. But I still enjoyed the plot and I wouldn't mind re-reading it in the future.

This is a really good read. The book is so well written in terms of description. It's very atmospheric and haunting. The story is good and hooked me from the beginning. The only thing I wasnt too sure on was the ending, without offering up spoilers I felt for Penny. That being said i really enjoyed the book and it was a quick read.

This was a good little quick read. I liked the premise of the book but there were just a couple of parts that didn't quite sit well with me, mainly the whole idea of the town just accepting teenage boys die every year and no-one moving away or anything. I also found the *twist* predictable, but overall, a nice little book.

GingerAntics So true. @Maria514626 right? I had someone do that with a 30 page final paper once. “That‘s just 8 pages a day.” That‘s not how it works. 🙄 I can probably write fiction faster than nonfiction, but still. Some days it just tumbles out and other days if you get a few sentences you‘re lucky. (edited) 11mo

TheBookKeepers A group of 4 littens each choose a book, read it & mark it up with highlights/notes, then the next month mail it to the next person. Each book passes to the next person until the end of the 4 months, and you get ur original back with everyone‘s notes! Super fun! @monalyisha 12mo

TheBookKeepers @monalyisha the host is @suvata but she already completed sign ups for the next round that started Nov 1 😕 so you‘ll have to wait until the next one. I‘ll make a note to tag you next time so you don‘t miss it! Or if you can find 3 other littens willing to join without the official sign up you could still start with this round! 12mo
monalyisha @TheBookKeepers That‘s okay! I don‘t know if I was quite ready to commit immediately, anyway... so it kinda works out. 😊 So you know how often she does it? 12mo
TheBookKeepers @monalyisha Yes, it repeats every 4 months as the current round closes. So prolly mid February will be sign ups to start the next round in March :) 12mo

I liked this book far more than I expected to, especially seeing how YA is very hit-or-miss with me, & a lot of the reviews said that it fell into a lot of the YA tropes that I despise. I didn‘t find that to be the case at all. It was haunting, surprisingly lyrical at times, & the premise was astoundingly creative. As a writer I appreciated how the author managed to keep an element of surprise with the narrator, seeing how it was in 1st person.

[#BookReview] The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw wasn‘t exactly what I wanted out of this story, but I have to admit despite being overall disappointed I would easily pick up another book Ernshaw writes because I fell in love with her style. The chilling atmosphere was a perfect pairing with this autumn despite it being set in early summer. 📖🍎🌙
