Book Report: Sorcery & Cecelia or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer

IMG_3493This was a fun read.

I enjoyed Wrede’s Enchanted Forest Chronicles as a child, and I was glad to find something else by her to sink my sweet tooth into. Sorcery & Cecelia reminded me at different points of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and any number of Diana Wynne Jones’s books. It combines reality/history with fantasy elements in interesting and entertaining ways.

The format is a collection of letters between two cousins, which is a bit jarring at first, but soon becomes smooth and easy to follow. The story was originally just a letter-writing game between the two authors, which gives me all kinds of fun ideas…

I recommend it for teens and adults, especially those who have enjoyed other regency novels (and especially girls as it is a Girl Power book).

Happy Yarning!
