I really enjoyed Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood and liked her alternate version of a early 20th century, New England society. I loved the wonderful details and descriptions in Born Wicked. The elaborate dresses and tea parties, her mysterious friends, dangerous magic and of course forbidden love.
