I started reading this last night. I read until I couldn’t read anymore and then I read more this morning. It was even better than the first one. It was awesome! It was amazing! 😍 I recommend this to everyone who read Bridge Daughter.

I now have a book hangover so I probably won’t be reading much for the next few days.

Stay awesome ♡ Christa

The anticipated sequel to BRIDGE DAUGHTER—

Single mother Hanna Driscoll struggles to raise her “bridge daughters,” twins born pregnant with Hanna’s children. In six weeks the girls will give birth and die, leaving Hanna with two infants to raise.

Then Hanna’s busy life is shaken when an activist threatens to rescue her daughters from their fate and kill the children they bear.

A thriller of twists and turns, Hanna faces challenges from all sides to protect her infants-to-be…only to discover she too questions the mortality of her bridge daughters.

This book was absolutely amazing. I loved it. It took me a few weeks to read it but that was more of a scheduling issue than an issue with the book. Frankie was a character that I could see myself hanging out with at 16. I will be reading more books by E. Lockhart. If you have one to recommend, let me know in the comment section.

Frankie Landau-Banks, at age 16: No longer the kind of girl to take “no” for an answer and possibly a criminal mastermind. This is the story of how she got that way.

Frankie Landau-Banks at age 14: Debate Club. Her father’s “bunny rabbit.” A mildly geeky girl attending a highly competitive boarding school. 

Frankie Landau-Banks at age 15: A knockout figure. A sharp tongue. A chip on her shoulder. And a gorgeous new senior boyfriend: the supremely goofy, word-obsessed Matthew Livingston. 

Frankie Landau-Banks. No longer the kind of girl to take “no” for an answer. Especially when “no” means she’s excluded from her boyfriend’s all-male secret society. Not when her ex-boyfriend shows up in the strangest of places. Not when she knows she’s smarter than any of them. When she knows Matthew’s lying to her. And when there are so many, many pranks to be done. 

Frankie Landau-Banks, at age 16: Possibly a criminal mastermind. 

This is the story of how she got that way.

I picked this book up at the book fair the other day. I’m not that far into it but I like what I’ve read so far. 😀

I finished this about 5 minutes ago and I am already alternating between wanting to read it again and wanting the next book. There were twists and turns that I wasn’t expecting. This whole book felt like a roller coaster. I loved it. I want more.

Is blood thicker than magic in La Nouvelle-Orléans?
Tormented by the fate she condemned her mother to, and by the lies she’s forced to tell to cover it up, Adele scours Storm-ravaged New Orleans for the truth about her family’s magical past. But every turn leads her back to the one person she’s determined to forget: Niccolò Medici. Not even the multitude of enchanted locks on the attic door trapping Nicco within can break their connection.
Sensing Nicco calling to Adele, Isaac tries relentlessly to keep her from exploring paths too dark that would endanger them all. But a new threat is rising: the Medici’s presence has attracted something else to New Orleans…an older enemy, one that will bring Isaac’s haunted past to life, test the witches’ friendships, and jeopardize Adele and Isaac’s blossoming relationship.
In this spellbinding continuation of The Casquette Girls saga, Adele must draw on the past—from seventeenth-century Florence, a time bubbling with alchemy and fraternal betrayal—and sort history from fantasy if she is to have any chance of saving her mother, her coven, and her magic.
