#190 - "Once a Witch" by Carolyn MacCullough

Tamsin Greene comes from a long line of witches, and she was supposed to be one of the most Talented among them. But Tamsin's magic never showed up. Now seventeen, Tamsin attends boarding school in Manhattan, far from her family. But when a handsome young professor mistakes her for her very Talented sister, Tamsin agrees to find a lost family heirloom for him. The search - and the stranger - will prove to be more sinister than they first appeared, ultimately sending Tamsin on a treasure hunt through time that will unlock the secret of her true identity, unearth the sins of her family, and unleash a power so vengeful that it could destroy them all. This is a spellbinding display of storytelling that will exhilarate, enthrall, and thoroughly enchant.
My rating: 4 of 5

My thoughts on the book:
I enjoyed Once a Witch a lot! It was fast-paced, with well-developed & engaging story & lovable characters. I liked the banter between Tamsin & Gabriel and a little spoiler, I loved Tamsin's Talent! I've always thought that kind of power would be great! Really fun book & I recommend it a lot! I'm looking forward to reading the sequel!



  1. This does sound like a fun book. There is something a little off about the image on the cover though
