I have mixed feelings about this book starting with the MC, who dislikes bookstores and doesn‘t have time to read. Nope, I cannot relate.

(More detail on my thoughts in my GR review.)

Books: 5
Pages: 330 (so far today)/1,254 total
Badges 9 out of 14 😀

KathyWheeler My experience with people who say they don‘t have time to read is that they manage to find time for tv and social media. It‘s not that they don‘t have time to read; it‘s that they don‘t prioritize it. 6mo
wanderinglynn @KathyWheeler In this case, the book is set in the late 1880s, so there‘s no TV or social media. 😂 So she really has no excuse. 6mo
KathyWheeler @wanderinglynn No, she doesn‘t! 😄 6mo

Had a few interesting twists I didn't see but overall teen bopperish. I wouldn't mind reading the next in the series.

Oh my god! I want to kill so many people right now! I wanted a happily ever after! Why?!

Okay so I loved the emphasis on the use of religion to control women with claims of witchcraft! I need to see more of the magic used like at the end cause...there's gotta be a BIG battle by the end of this trilogy and I am SO EXCITED FOR THAT! I also appreciated the sibling struggle cause...as someone with 3 siblings...we don't all sing cumbia 24/7/365

iread2much Sounds good! How‘s the writing style? 2y
AshHisson Ah, spoilers! 2y
SassenachTheBookWizard @iread2much I had no issues with it or the pacing? 2y
iread2much Thanks! I‘ve added it to my list of books to read 😄 2y

Great start to this series! Magical witch sisters, love triangle in an alternative past that is a little Handmaid's Tale-esque. Plot is a little thin but I will definitely keep reading. #RogueBookBingo

I read this book based on @Nitpickyabouttrains reaction to the end. It is so worth it! It's interesting to follow how the three sisters handle their magic.

I never realized just how few pink books I own. I don't gravitate to pink, never have. I'm more of a purple or plum gal, but the #riotgrams of the day is #pinkcovers so here ya go. 💟💗

It took me a little while to get in. But by the end I was yelling at the book, which is always a good sign. #bookbingo #roguebookbingo #bookwithmagic

This was okay. I thought it would be awesome- 3 sisters destined to be the most powerful and to bring about a new movement of strong and capable witches? Sounds awesome right? Well it was severely lacking in likeable characters.

Fun world and lots of relatable sisterly conflict. Interested to see what happens next.

If you haven't read this book you need to and I'd like to thank @amanduhduh for suggesting it. Puritanical society where three sisters are witches where magic is illegal. It's so good. Feel free to freak out to me because it will happen. It happened to me.
