When My Heart Was Wicked

Hello Loverlies! I entered a giveaway a few months ago at Rockstar Book Tour and actually won! I won When My Heart Was Wicked by Tricia Stirling. It is not a very thick book and in the back it states this is her first Novel she has written. How exciting! Also I love how Beautiful the artwork on the book cover is! I found myself staring at it and looking at all the details many times. 

 Synopsis On Goodreads: 

"I used to be one of those girls. The kind who loved to deliver bad news. When I colored my hair, I imagined it seeping into my scalp, black dye pooling into my veins. But that was the old Lacy. Now, when I cast spells, they are always for good." 16-year-old Lacy believes that magic and science can work side by side. She's a botanist who knows how to harness the healing power of plants. So when her father dies, Lacy tries to stay with her step-mother in Chico, where her magic is good and healing. She fears the darkness that her real mother, Cheyenne, brings out, stripping away everything that is light and kind. Yet Cheyenne never stays away for long. Beautiful, bewitching, unstable Cheyenne who will stop at nothing, not even black magic, to keep control of her daughter's heart. She forces Lacy to accompany her to Sacramento, and before long, the "old" Lacy starts to resurface. But when Lacy survives a traumatic encounter, she finds herself faced with a choice. Will she use her powers to exact revenge and spiral into the darkness forever? Or will she find the strength to embrace the light?

(I like sharing the synopsis from Goodreads a lot of times, because I am worried I will give away too much) I enjoyed reading this book and it was an easy read. Also I found enjoyment in learning about each character, and found myself rooting for certain ones. I will say Stirling kept me guessing throughout the whole book. It was very suspensful trying to figure out which character is evil/good. Maybe I need to read more Mystery/suspensful books? I always love books/movies where I cannot guess who is the evil character, or when I cannot figure out how it is exactly going to end. I love stories that blow my mind and make me think "What just happened?!". I recommend giving this book a read. I cannot wait to see what other books Stirling comes out with. I know I will keep an eye out! Have a Blessed Day!
