Title: House of Ivy & Sorrow by Natalie Whipple
Published by: Harper Teen
Release date: April 15th, 2014
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 want to read it: First of all, I'm in love with this cover. The colors, the shadows in the background, the fonts work perfectly together. I haven't read any books by the author, but I've heard that Transparent is really good. Lastly, I like the blurb, it includes a mystery and witches, what can go wrong?
What are you waiting for this week?
