Blog Tour: Star Cursed by Jessica Spotswood

Welcome to the STAR CURSED blog tour! STAR CURSED is the second book in The Cahill Witch Chronicles.

Let me tell you a little bit about this series-it's the perfect summer read! It's an alternative history with witches-what's not to love? And yes, I know there's a love triangle, but I have to say, this is one love triangle where I was just as torn as the main character (although I do love Finn!!) I don't know who I would rather see Cate with and that makes reading the series even more fun. And oh my goodness, that cliffhanger ending-trust me-Jessica is brilliant and a bit mean for making us suffer! :) If you're looking for a fun historical series with a magic twist, be sure to follow along on the tour and have a chance to win a special ARC from Jessica!



About the Book: With the Brotherhood persecuting witches like never before, a divided Sisterhood desperately needs Cate to come into her Prophesied powers. And after Cate's friend Sachi is arrested for using magic, a war-thirsty Sister offers to help her find answers—if Cate is willing to endanger everyone she loves.

Cate doesn't want to be a weapon, and she doesn't want to involve her friends and Finn in the Sisterhood's schemes. But when Maura and Tess join the Sisterhood, Maura makes it clear that she'll do whatever it takes to lead the witches to victory. Even if it means sacrifices. Even if it means overthrowing Cate. Even if it means all-out war.

In the highly anticipated sequel to BORN WICKED, the Cahill Witch Chronicles continue Cate, Maura and Tess's quest to find love, protect family, and explore their magic against all odds in an alternate history of New England.

I am so excited to be part of this tour! As part of the blog tour, each day Jess is revealing an annotated snippet from STAR CURSED. I love annotations in books and I am loving following along the tour and reading Jessica's notes throughout the book. You don't want to miss out!

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
