A wonderful “history” book on different women of the same family line with different personalities.


A sweeping historical saga that traces five generations of fiercely powerful mothers and daughters – witches whose magical inheritance is both a dangerous threat and an extraordinary gift.

I saw A Secret History of Witches advertised on Facebook on Mother’s Day. I had to order it. I love anything with witches. The story starts out in 1827, with meeting the grand witch Ursele, who dies and is left buried in the middle of nowhere while her daughters and their husbands run for hiding. You meet her daughters, and the only witch out of the daughters who births a daughter is Nanette.

It goes on with her daughter Ursele (yes, named after the grandmother), Ursele has a daughter Irene. Irene has a daughter Morwen who has a daughter Veronica, which ends with her. Each daughter has a different personality. Through each daughter, the power becomes stronger, and each learn of their heritage in a different way.

I can see this story as a mixture of Charmed and Practical Magic. You learn of the heritage and how it all began. You will love, you will hate, you will fear, and you will grow.

I rate the book 5/5 for not only the way it was written, but the story and the feeling.

I unfortunately do not have a post about a review or a list today. Between packing, and family, I have barely had time to read this week. Did you know I had packed seven boxes of books? And I am not even done. I believe I would have one or two more boxes left for books.

I have vandalized a book. If you are my friend on Facebook, you would know that I started a leadership book. One that I would hope to post soon. I have always been a fan of leadership, studied it for years, done papers and presentations on it. I pretty much specialize in it. But, it is always nice to get another person’s point of view on it.

I remember a couple of weeks ago, I was hanging out with my best friend, and her boyfriend (whom I consider my brother), and they were showing YouTube clips of this guy who teaches leadership. I am pretty sure you have heard of him, as his clips flooded my timeline lol.

Simon Sinek. The way he talked about leadership, is like a whole new dimension. I do not think that I have ever vandalized a book out of recreation and not education.

In between reading his book, and packing, I am putting together my TBR box to make sure that goes with me and not storage. The more books I get, the more I want my library. I have dreamed of a library for so long. I change my ideas on it so many times. Is it going to be in the living room? The bedroom? My future SheShed that will also be my office? Who knows. Maybe the bedroom will be my office as well. I am currently a stay-at-home mom, so it gives me a quiet place that the television (Sex & the City, Big Bang Theory, Charmed, and Supernatural are my weaknesses lol) will not distract me. My husband likes the news, I like junk television.
