Witch by Finbar Hawkins
Set in the 17th century, a breathtaking debut, and a potential prize-winner, about the power of women, witchcraft, fury, revenge and the ties that bind us.
After witnessing the brutal murder of her mother by witch-hunters, Evey vows to avenge her and track down the killers. Fury burns in her bright and strong. But she has promised her mother that she will keep Dill, her little sister, safe.
As the lust for blood and retribution rises to fever pitch, will Evey keep true to the bonds of sisterhood and to the magick that is her destiny?
This is a short little audiobook so I figured, why not? I do love stories about girls and magic. I’m drawn to this one because the main character has a little sister she has to protect, but she’s also driven for revenge. Sounds like fun!
Love You To Death by Meg Cabot
There’s a hot guy in Susannah Simon’s bedroom. Too bad he’s a ghost.
Suze is a mediator-a liaison between the living and the dead. In other words, she sees dead people. And they won’t leave her alone until she helps them resolve their unfinished business with the living. But Jesse, the hot ghost haunting her bedroom, doesn’t seem to need her help. Which is a relief, because Suze has just moved to sunny California and plans to start fresh, with trips to the mall instead of the cemetery, and surfing instead of spectral visitations.
But the very first day at her new school, Suze realizes it’s not that easy. There’s a ghost with revenge on her mind, and Suze happens to be in the way.
This is another short audiobook, and it’s quite old, from what I can tell! I think is was originally published in 2000, which is waaaaay before YA was a big thing! I’m really interested to see how it holds up over 20 years later, and to see what it still has in common with popular YA books nowadays.
