Book Review: Book of Shadows by Cate Tiernan

Rating: Star


Morgan thinks witchcraft is laughable when her best friend Bree drags her to a meeting of the Cirrus Coven. But during a cermony led by Cal, Morgan’s long-time crush, Morgan feels a shock. Suddenly everything looks brighter, clearer. Morgan doesn’t want to get involved with witchcraft-but she feels like witchcraft is choosing her.

Can somebody say LAME! for me?

it was such a letdown. i find it hard to finish this one. fortunately, this is a short read.

Morgan (love her name) is a smart high school student with Bree (goddess-like look) as her best friend. when a new boy moves to town and started recruiting members to build a new coven, Bree and Morgan tag along. little did Morgan know that this will be the start of her new life. as a witch.

there was no conflict. well, there’s this Bree and Morgan fighting over Cal (the new guy). Bree claims she’s in love with him; Morgan feels that same but does not voice it out because of her insecurities (not pretty, brown hair, flat chest). other than that, nothing.

after finishing the book, i realized it has no concrete plot. the only villain there is, is Bree. C’mon! the premise is witchcraft and the enemy is an ordinary human?!?!

the book ended with Morgan finally accepting herself as a witch. that’s all.

what irritated me the most is that Morgan keep on pining over Cal, saying she’s falling deeper in love with him. How can that happen? They never talk about personal stuff. only wiccan. and they were never alone to discuss little things that make a relationship. Grrr.

Shallow. i despise this book.

  2. The story does have a plot to it and Bree isn’t the villain in the stories. If you continue on you learn that people close to Morgan are betraying her and those who were thought bad come to the rescue.
