Sorcery & Cecelia: or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot (Cecelia and Kate, #1)Sorcery & Cecelia: or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot by Patricia C. Wrede

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This was so so good. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It's a novel consisting of letters between two female cousins, Cecelia and Kate, at the beginning of the 19th century. One of them has had to stay home in the country while the other is being presented in London, and so they write letters to each other to stay in touch. Magic is real in this world, and both girls become entangled in a plot that sends them into great peril (which, to be fair, they mostly end up enjoying).

We're living in pretty dark times, and reading something extremely funny and witty and utterly delightful was just what I needed right now.

I thought this one was lovely but couldn't get into the sequels. FWIW.

Is this YA or adult? Either way, I going to look for this because it sounds right up my alley; I'm just curious.

Thanks!

I've heard of the Parasol Protectorate but never read them.

Yahhhhhh! She liked it. 😎

As much as I love this one I actually have not read the sequels even tho I own -- probably afraid the epistolary style and concept might not hold. So I read this one again. I should change that.
